The best budget device is the Amazon Firestick 4k at $50. You want a good internet connection and an ethernet adapter from Amazon is a good option. Alternatively, a 5ghz WiFi router with a strong connection should also be adequate.

The best app by far is TiviMate and support can be found on the subreddit /r/tivimate and the installation guide for an Amazon Firestick can be found here.

There are alternative apps, such as Perfect Player, IPTV Smarters, XCIPTV but in my opinion TiviMate offers the best live TV experience.

The best Stalker based device would be the Formuler z8 at approx $150.

The winner for overkill for an android based device would be the NVIDIA SHIELD TV at $200. The processor will take anything you can throw at it. It’s a great device but a bit overkill for just IPTV. Other good options worth mentioning:

  • Minix Neo U1
  • Raspberry Pi

What about MAG boxes? Old GUI. Outdated menus. So many better options. Some MAG box manufacturers are starting to block IPTV streams.
