Hey guys after reading the thread about the guy looking to cut the cord. I thought i'd make this thread to share any tips & tricks for streaming over IP.

I currently have an android tv box running a pay subscription for $15 for everything in the world.
Any help for other for buffering, info, etc. id great info to share.

If you want to only pay an up front cost.

Grab an Android tv box off amazon, 4 HB ram and running new software you can have payment free tele. Not including sports.

The Trakt tv is a fantastic tool to use with the Morpheus app. Once you integrate trakt to Morpheus it know every episode you watch so you know when your up to date with a an episode or series.

You can stream every series from The Walking Dead to the Six million dollar man. Every Netflix show and movie is there, so dump that Netflix ASAP. Wasting money.

If you choose to go the IPTV away, most subscriptions have a “trial period” you can take advantage of to see it if works for you.

Some of the subscription services are:
Insight IPTV
IPTV Subscription
Gears TV
Vader
Etc.

Is any one service better than the others? Have you tried them all? Any risk in getting a warning from Comcast? I received a letter in the mail from Comcast after I watched GoT on Kodi.

I am using a T95Z Plus (S912 based)

running the custom ATVXperience firmware.

Got Serviio running on a PC to do a DLNA service and then I use Kodi on the android box to do playback.

Can also watch sling tv, screen mirror your phone to the tv and etc... The box is basically and android phone that plugs into the TV, can do most any android app. Works great for me.

After a bunch of research today there is like 50 providers. I am paying a guy to do mine, but i feel I can install it myself in a heartbeat for less money.
I think I can found a provider that will support 3-5 simultaneous devices for about 25-25 per month. and it gets less if you go for longer subscriptions, mostr are about $100 for a full year. I will split that with a friend and have 2 android boxes each.

If you pay for a VPN and add that to the device (vpn is cheap) they wont know where you are then anyway.

I found one IPTV provider thats $8 a month for about 3000 channels and 10,000 VOD files. Just use a STBEMU apk app and load it for endless tv, and sports and PPV

I read today Morpheus app is being discontinued, so someone picked up after it and re-used the base system and called it Phoenix TV, its great. Logs into Trakt.tv also. You can buy a $69 android box and run Phoenix for completely free if you want just every tv show with no commercials. no sports though

Using a bootleg streaming service on kodi is probably a good way to get nasty letters.

I only use Kodi to playback locally stored files on a PC via the Serviio service. I pay for the cheap SlingTV package and it has a pretty good value for what it is.

$2-3 a month or probably like a 2 year VPN plan for $50 will take care of those letters.

What IPTV provider do you use? I mean backdoor iptv 3000 channels, not the 100 channel streamers. Fire away.

So, I tried a 1 day trial for Vader Streams for $4 too see how it would run with my internet and android.
Seemed to do quite well, little buffering on sports but the channels worked very well and the picture quality blew my doors off.

The streams are on sale right now 5$ a month for 1 device, up to 3 devices for like $13 a month. It has 3 day “replay” on every channel and a massive VOD selection.
I think I might go in and get three device
plan and get rid of my regular tb package

Well, I’m sold, went with the Vader Stram after the successful trial.

5 devices, 3 ip addresses for 70$ for 6 month package. I’m blown away by the quality of picture, content and etc.

Are you using VPN? If so, which service?

#13 8 days ago

I didn’t toss a VPN in. I probably should, but they aren’t quite as finicky here as you guys in US.

So what's the deal with something like Vader Stream? It says 1000 channels. Am I to think TV channels? In that I need to either record the show when it airs, or be sitting in front of the TV? Or is it an on-demand streaming service for 1000 channels? So I can sit down, pick a show and just hit play?

There is all the channels

There is a 3 day pvr - called replay tv.

And another VOD section with pretty much every series there is. All updated weekly. No need to download or pvr anything, the work is already done for you
