    Using someone at present who seems a little better, far fewer glitches but will take another months trial to observe. And yes, the plan is to switch to one of the Formuler boxes in the near future.

    There are a few good providers out there but it just take a bit of hunting down to find a good one.Most people on here have probably had several providers before they found one they were happy with.Also I would buy a dedicated box not a smart tv as they are very limited.

    i can put it only as simple as this . Iptv will have its problems always . With satellite your going to be flawless . So just pay for your tv to watch it flawlessly and stop complaining

    not all freezing is down to suppliers, we all experience issues and no one can say 100percent freeze free because they would be lying.not point in lying. if suppliers could provide a service to match the big two providers then price would be match that lol

    Sometimes its peoples internet you can call them and they will say no problem on your line, you can do a speed test and all be fine but it don't tell you that you may have had 100 meg on download at time but could be badly fluctuating up and down making your service freeze,
    There are a lot of people just selling restreams hence I call them the Kodi of IPTV this is also the problem, just resellers and there provider who is just selling restreams has they don't have there own streams and so not in control of there service.
    This is the difference between cheap reseller priced IPTV and Premium IPTV services.

    Yeah but the problem is that everyone claims to be selling a premium service but is all the same stuff!

    There are a number of issues really. In the old c/s days it was just as hard to find a good supplier. With iptv it is very stable however i have noticed this setup works.

    1. Always use your own router
    2. You really do need a solid internet speed
    3. wired connection (No excuses)
    4. if you are using a enigma 2 box use the service app and stream using 5002. you may also have to change the settings in xtream editor if you use it.
    5. change your dns settings in router for google dns (this will help if you keep getting kicked out of streams)
    6. And you will need a good supplier. now i pay £30 for 3 months. If you are paying £5 per month don't expect a good service.
    7. get a box dedicated to streaming i used to have a zgemma i55 and it was fine (no problems). I have recently bought a mag 322 only £62.00 and it comes with HEVC support which dramatically reduces the bandwidth required to run iptv.

    Not always true I pay £40 a year and it's spot on. Far superior to previous setups that were charging me £10-£20 a month. Admittedly I only use it for sport now, but still it's near perfect.

    There is also another thread on here somewhere about someone who bought IPTV for £5 on eBay for 12 months just to see how good it was......a guy I work with bought IPTV for something like 7 usd and 4 months on it's still working and he very rarely has an issue. Paying extra doesn't always mean better.

    That £40 a year, is that just for the sports channels or complete package?

    That's everything, UK/USA/PPV, problem is seller doesn't want me referring anyone who is a TK member.....his rules, not mine. I wasn't putting the post on to advertise, I was just showing that cost is not everything.

    Like I say though guy I work with paid around 7 USD and 4 months on it's still working. No idea where he got it from.

    Any idea why your supplier does not want to sell to anyone from techkings, surely he would want the extra business, plus on the same subject where does he get his customers from , he must advertise somewhere. I wont bother with iptv while cable is still working, but glad you finally got a decent one after having so many problems.

    Honestly, I don't know. I just got told these are the rules. I got it via a friend of a friend of a friend. He knows I'm a TK member, but I only got accepted due to who referred me. I have googled the supplier name and nothing comes up, I can't find any advertising anywhere, nothing on FB/Twitter. This is obviously why it's so good.

    It took me that long to find, so I'm just sticking with what he asked and that's to refer people who I know personally only and can trust and no TK members.

    Yeah it must have something to do with the service being good.

    How would he know you are a TK member? Just sounds like my old c/s supplier he would only take people by referral. The fact that he saying no Tk members sounds like he has something to hide he has probably been band.

    Glad you got it sorted £40 a year is less than £3.50 per month.

    Think this out logically regarding iptv providers.
    Social Media/Facebook/Twitter/Ebay etc easily traced by authorities so always a target for getting shut down and losing your money.
    Provider that google can't find is a rarity but shows that they are being very careful/sensible and not having any attention drawn to them.
    The big providers who have been caught/shut down recently all advertised and i believe were in for the short term and a big turnover before doing a runner.
    A smaller provider whose only overheads are their servers/stream lines cost can make a very good living without being greedy and will always increase if the service is good as personal recommendations are the name of the game.
    If these providers are that careful, then why would they jeopardise that supplying lines to any forum members who they have no idea who they are dealing with.
    We have loads of new members who join for the sole purpose of obtaining details of providers.
    Genuine user/tax man/FACT/sly/Vm !!!...Nobody has any idea so their policy of personal only obviously workss for them by the sound of it.

    As I posted earlier. Think outside the forum .. what provider is good for me may be utterly useless for you.
