IPTVX Should Be The Only IPTV App For Your Apple TV

IPTVX Should Be The Only IPTV App For Your Apple TV-hero-image

If you own a Apple TV (4th Generation), there is one App that you're probably missing from your App Tray, that App is IPTVX.
You need a IPTV Subscription first but there's many available, Iconic IPTV is one that I use but, you can use any!

Once you've found the perfect IPTV Service for you, download IPTVX from the App Store and enjoy a Netflix Style App for all of your Favourite Movies, TV Shows and Live TV Channels.

For a long time, iPlayTV was the go-to App for IPTV on the Apple TV (4th Generation), with little to no competition, sure there are a few IPTV Apps but none are optimized for the tvOS and utilized the Power of the Apple TV.

IPTVX

Enter IPTVX, this is the only true competitor for iPlayTV. The Developer Matteo Gobbi, is currently a Software Engineer at Google working on iOS Apps, who recently finished a three-year stint at Twitter.

IPTVX has a growing Reddit community that is full of new updates for the App and allows you to get support quickly if you have any issues.

He created an IPTV Player that is one of the best in its Class, IPTVX is styled to mimic the layout of Netflix and borrows some of its features, such as the ability to continue watching a movie where you left off.

IPTVX Hero

Most of the Features in this App are unprecedented for a IPTV App, such as completely watching an Episode of TV Show and then have the next Episode offered up to you at the end (as Netflix and Plex does currently).

I predominately use an Android TV to watch IPTV, I can tell you that no App on Android TV can come close to the Experience that IPTVX gives you.

  • Auto EPG: for the 90% of users watching IPTV, the Electronic Program Guide (EPG) is on the same server which provides your playlist. If this is your case, IPTVX will automatically find it for you;
  • Possibility to insert an arbitrary EPG url (supports GZIP); EPG is cached and reloaded automatically after 12 hours;

It works also with playlists that aren't strongly formed by M3U tags.
