re: Another TV Cord Cutting Question. (IPTV)
This site walks you through installing gears LINK and has the correct link for buying a subscription. Its the actual Gears Reloaded site Gears Reloaded , not a reseller, so after signing up you get your login info instantaneously. I chose the $19 single device plan.

There are better IPTV services out there for much less $$ than Gears but they are all struggling to rebuild after the Italian bust of a major provider.

I have an account with Nosleep and they are trying to get up and running again. I will stick with them when they get things sorted out. Gears is too expensive IMO and don't allow you to use 3rd party viewing apps such as tivimate which is a fantastic front end/guide. I pay $6/mo with NS and their service has been great up until now. KS-Hosting is another good one but they are rebuilding too.

Tivimate is so good. It's better than any cable/satellite company's TV guide, IMO.

If I could pair Gears' reliability with Tivimate, I would gladly pay $20/month, even with Gears subpar video quality.

Tivimate is a separate app and not required for Gears or any other IPTV provider. It is a great front end for IPTV and makes the user experience much better IMO. But Gears will not work with Tivimate which annoys me. if you are a tech phobe, you probably don't want to mess with Tivimate though. Gears has a decent guide/front end and is better than most of the other IPTV providers guide/front ends but its still clunky IMO.

Yes. If its just you using Gears, then you can get the single device plan for $19/mo. If you have kids/wife using the service too who will be watching a channel at the same time you are watching another channel, you'll need the one of the more expensive plans. There is also a plan for $15 but I don't think that includes a guide. I assume you have a firetv box or some other streaming box.

Yes, you need an Android box such as FireTV for each TV. You will also need to subscribe to a VPN which "hides" your online activity and install their app on the fireTV. I don't think Gears will work without a VPN. That first link I posted talks about this. I use IPVanish but there are several good ones. Here is a review of various VPNs. If you are watching the 2 tVs at the same time then you will need the $35 subscription. I have the $19 single device subscription but I have 3 TVs. I can watch Gears on any TV or even my Tablet or Phone but my wife can't watch on one TV while I watch on the other. But she doesn't watch Gears so no problem for us.

I also use Gears Reloaded with very few issues on a 4K Firestick and don’t use a VPN. Go to Gears Reloaded Facebook page and thee are posts on how to add the app with no issues. I’ve been using the service over a year so far.
