The best IPTV apps for your Android device

The best IPTV apps for your Android device

IPTV, or Internet Protocol television, is the platform that allows you to watch television channels via an Internet connection. In order to do this, you'd usually need to register for certain online services or download software to your PC. But how can you enjoy your favorite channels on your smartphone? As usual, the solution to all this is apps!

In this useful guide we will show you, in our opinion, the best IPTV apps currently available on Google Play Store which you can install on your Android device, smartphone or tablet. Of course, we remind you that, in order to take advantage of these apps, your device must be connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi or mobile data (watch out for consumption).

GSE SMART IPTV

This completely free application (with optional in-app purchases) allows you to watch TV channels via streaming, using lists in M3U or JSON format, and which you can upload via HTTP or FTP links. The interface is very intuitive, allows you to check out the television guide (EPG) and contains an integrated video player full of useful commands for certain functions. There is also the possibility of transmitting content from your smartphone to your TV via Chromecast or Apple TV.

IPTV Extreme

IPTV Extreme is one of the most downloaded and appreciated apps in this category. Free, simple and intuitive, it offers all the features you'd expect. Every user can find what they need when they want to enjoy a little TV on their smartphone. Here, we also find an integrated video player, support for Google Chromecast, a Parental Control function, support for M3U lists and automatic updates of the EPG.

TVCast

TVCast differs from the others on this thanks to its simple and minimal interface in line with Google's Material Design, which leaves no room for doubt. It supports both M3U and M3U8 and is available free of charge. As you may have guessed from the name, this application is oriented to content casting: in fact, it can broadcast the contents of its channel list on a variety of devices, including Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast and the TVCast Web Player (the proprietary software to be able to transmit to your PC).

IPTV

The name of this application is practically a guarantee for variety. Although it does not have the most beautiful graphical interface ever, IPTV is the preferred app for over 10 million users. Among its best features, you will find frequent updates, speed, excellent integrated player, support for M3U and XSPF lists, support for EPG, the option to display the channel list in three modes (list, grid or titles) and automatic reconnection in case of buffering or blocks.

    I like "OTTplay IPTV". It allows to add unlimited playlists & EPGs. Also it has simple interface.


  • I appreciate that you posted this article which helped me a lot as I am building an app for IPTV. Thank You very much.


  • Literally the worst list of IPTV apps available, all of them, the blogger obviously doesn't use IPTV or these apps, because if he did, he'd clearly know they are terrible apps. The best app for IPTV on android is Perfect Player, hands down the very best, it emulates a cable satellite box, with a real timeline EPG and the ability to create a favorite list and adaptive sorting which sorts your most accessed channels at the top of the list, you can change decoders on a per channel basis, has voice enabled search, you can edit everything, it's by far the only android IPTV app worth using, the rest just offer you a list of channels, and no or very little programming guides. And with hundreds of channels, it makes using an IPTV service very inconvenient.

    Please people, do yourself a favor, don't waste your precious time with any of these apps, this blogger is doing you a disservice by suggesting these very, very poorly written apps. Perfect player is the only choice, a close second would be the smarters IPTV android app, it's far simpler but a very good app with a real timeline programming guide as well and a great layout for the VOD section.

      It may be a great IPTV app but it looks like you have to be technically inclined, there's like a ten minute video to watch just to get it set up. M3U urls and EPG urls, oh my! I'm used to working with Kodi and some other apk apps but this might be above my pay grade. Might try tinkering with it tomorrow, we'll see.
