Premium Legal IPTV

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

after the awesome help of this community i now have IPTV working.

 

i am now considering options for a premium IPTV channel list and EPG provider.

 

Do you have any recommendations? 

 

I live in Australia and the wife would like access to USA channels also

 

TIA

I use iptv-epg for my EPG guide provider, and while I am really happy with how it is supposed to work, they have been experiencing issues with their service on and off for a couple of months now.  They are supposed to be moving to new servers soon, but for now its a bit hit and miss with them,.  Once they have the issues resolved they should be rock solid.

 

I also have xstream-editor, which works well, but I am not able to change the channel display order with their guide,   Their editor does give you an ordering option, but it doesn't actually set the order in the m3u link, whereas iptv-epg does.

Good Day...I have been using a service provider for some 3+ years now and have seen them grow from a small footprint to what they are now. Using a VPN is not necessary but it helps with the streaming for sure. Minimal cost like 50USD for 3 months and you get something like 12,000 channels from a variety of countries. I only use the GBR, French and USA channell streams and they come across with an outstanding viewing experience. There are many reasons I have stayed with them so long after giving it a go with the regular players like TPK, Vaders (all versions) and many others. I also get the option of using their website connection and benefit from their EPG or downloading the m3u file. I use the m3u option so I can pick and choose the channels I want. I also use a couple of proggy's to control the EPG as I see fit. This allows me to order the channels in any way I want and using Notepad++ allows me to give each stream their channel number which also puts them in a defined order. Cheers...

There is a good legal one however there is no plugin for it on Emby, that would be https://www.ustvnow.com/

 

P#@x does have an addon so I do know it can be connected to a third party but as of now I have not been able to find a way or track down a plugin to make it work with Emby.

I think the legality of that service is in question as well - especially if you lie to the sign up process and tell them you are out of the U.S.

Good Day...It is probably for that reason there is no MB plugin. We in the military have access to it no matter where we are stationed, in or out of USA. Maybe a perk. Cheers...

I know this is reviving an old thread, but maybe there is something new out there. I am getting tired of using IPTV with all of their issues. Just lost two more providers. Just vanished. Is there anything out there that can give me legal US cable channels and works with Emby LiveTV? I guess m3u is out. Tried HDHR, hated it. Any other options?

HDHR is one of the best ways to bring TV to Emby that just works.

Why did you hate it?  What HDHR device did you have?

Had Quadro Connect with Channels sub. didn't like the way it recorded OTA shows via cloud based and didn't have any cable channels available at the time.. Moved to Tablo for OTA and can store recordings on a local disk and transfer them to an Emby library with Tablo ripper. At the time it was the best choice to move, don't see anything better from HDHR now. But my goal now is to dump IPTV after 2 more of them disappeared on me. I just want to record a few shows from cable channels.

I wouldn't like that setup either but with a Quatro (4 tuner) connected to your LAN Emby does a good job recording and playing back.

A Vbox Gateway works very well as well.

You may be able to do this with PlayOn Desktop. I do.
