ok ive seen on other sites people talking about this , and that it can be installed on a Samsung tv , which ive done . they seem to be going to sell the channels or provide them some how to tvs if they have the mac address of the tv , would this work ??, or is there a better way to get the channels??? . would it be better to buy a box with the channels already loaded on it , if so what one ?? , pm me the box if not aloud in the forum .

thanx

If you already have the Samsung or LG smart TV that can use the IPTV App then there is no need for another box they both work the same way, They ask for the MAC address so they can add that to there own portal which gives you access to all the channels,EPG,VOD etc..

Cheers for that @idrob, would it be too much to ask for the latest channel list.

The free channel lists are unreliable but there may be the odd good one if someone will share it with you. If you want a good reliable list you need to subscribe to a paid service.

There are some kind people that provide a nice channel list and update it on a regular basis for free

The list is for satellite receivers but as they are in m3u format you can use them anywhere

Click the link below to find them on google

Cheers digi, most of the channels don't work but some do which proves it works, as you say a pay sub would be better.

channel on free iptv is difficult to have, and the "m3u list" must be change every day. Pay is the best solution for working channel.
Google is yours friend
