    I am not too familiar with the term IPTV, but if I understand what it refers to, I use an Apple TV, amazon fire sticks, and a PS4 as well.

    Edit: in retrospect, I don’t think I really understand what IPTV is haha.

    the firestick is an iptv dream. you can side load apps with no issue. Essentially, in IPtv you are paying for a stream just like sling, peacock, etc.

    iptv sources can be a bit sketchy so i always pay by the month and use a vpn. I've used eternal tv for years with no issues

    Look at it this way. It's about like a product where the trademark has expired and others can offer the same. It's not through your cable but your net access.

    I looked over Eternal a few weeks ago and had doubts. That's based out of Russia. The biggest thing that drew me away is the compatibility (IE Windows and other smart TV's.) Their uptime ran about 90% when I was working with them.

    Do you use them? How many devices? DVR capabilities?

    I can tell you this..IF this works out it won't be that cheap. But again remember, the purpose is site support here. It'll give Kyle the ability to add a lot around here without actually spending money.

    I do use them. I have them on 3 devices but I think you can have up to 5?

    I use Youtube TV and either Roku or Android TV to stream it. It was great when I first got it, but now they have taken away the regional Fox Sports Networks, which is critical to me, and added stuff I don't watch, while raising the price. Honestly thinking about just going back to Comcast.

    I see a few differences, I think. DVR is one, Windows another. Do they stream the latest movies?
