My last article I told you about one of the great ways to enhance your Android TV experience, by utilizing the blazingly fast and well laid out Live Channels app with 9000+ IPTV Channels.

You can make use of the Google Assistant's deep integration with Android TV's Live Channels App, quickly finding what you want to Watch with Google Assistant is made easy.

This is great, but once you set it all up you have a great long list of Channels - The Problem we have is that Google predefines the names of categories.

I've created a playlist that you can download, it has most of the English-speaking channels categorized according to the predefined Names that Google want you to use.

Unfortunately, it's not as simple as Downloading and then uploading the playlist to TVirl.
