I do not. I can’t speak for the others. I’ve been using the same guys for 3yrs now and have had 0 problems.

I apologize in advance for both a long post and my lack of understanding regarding IPTV, VPN etc. I'm also looking to get away from cox, mostly out of spite. I'm ok with their internet until AT&T fiber comes to 70816 (unless you guys recommend something else). I'm searching for a streaming service that I can use at home and in my 5th wheel when I'm away. For my current camper setup I create a hotspot with my cell and link firesticks to it and use an antenna for local. You can already see my problem, no cable channels. I tried out sling this past weekend at the TN game and it sucked. I had no issues with Netflix, prime or any other service but espn continued to freeze with sling. When I ask others with RV's what I should do, 95% say to get a monthly DTV subscription. Apparently there's a service you can use for a month, cancel, use for 2 months, cancel etc. and only pay for the months you want service. I know there has to be a more consolidated way to have reliable streaming at home and away without having multiple subscriptions (i.e. Cox, DTV, Dish) and I'm hoping that someone here can help me. At home my setup is cox preferred (Download speeds up to 250 Mbps*, 1.25 TB (1,280 GB) Monthly Data Plan, and the panoramic setup) at $97/month. Cable is $138/ month, add in the taxes + fees and I'm at $250.
As far as IPTV setup...can I use it in multiple locations (home and away)? Any recommendations on a provider? I'm not saying that cost isn't a factor but if I have to pay a little more to get better service, I'm ok with it. Regardless, I'm sure it will be cheaper than my current cox bill. As mentioned, if there's a better internet plan, I would gladly swap.
Any help is greatly appreciated and I'll gladly return the favor with a few cold ones! TIA!

Is there a way we can do an updated post on the first page? I used to do all the blackmarket kodi or even xboxtv stuff until they all quit working and it got hard.

The thread is over 80 pages and the scenery changes so fast. What's the newest way? I ended up going back to cable to get a decent espn stream and netflix, but nothing really I want to watch on netflix anymore.

I use a windows computer on my tv so iptv for either windows or smartv. What's good now?

If you get multiple connections, you can watch them anywhere. I currently have 5 connections, split between myself and my family. The provider I use isn't taking any new subscribers but I know of another one that's pretty good. If you don't mind, drop your email and I'll gladly fill you in.

I use a "Onn stick" (WM $17.95) which is 2K in my RV connected to my phones hot spot, the 2K works better without all the buffering in slow areas. I also have several subscriptions, Prime, Discovery+, Paramount+, and Puffin browser (won't work on firestick)to watch online TV like sportsurge or 123tv. live along with a ota antenna for locals.

Well I got my Kodi back up and in operation. So far I've only installed 1 app/scraper but it's working. Also renewed my subscription to real debrid. If you have any IPTV suggestions please feel free to mail me at oldmandoct@gmail.com.

I looked at a few but it's awfully hard to find ones I can make payment on with their forms of payment. Feel free to let me know which Kodi apps are good too right now the only one I have starts with a S.

For KODI I've been using ENIGMA for movies etc. and THE CREW for IPTV. Firestick, I just use att so have buffering during peak times, but cox or better internet should work better.

Also for firestick there is IPTV Smarters Pro which is free on the firestick (no trial just free) and then download the free iptv list from github (try the US list as there way too many foreign channels). That way you can get TCM,TBS,TNT, plus a few other mediocre free channels. The cool thing is that the TBS,TNT,TCM and maybe a few others is they have both EAST and WEST feeds.

With better internet it's faster but still time consuming to flip around, it is free tho

Need some help. I want to cut the cord from uverse. I know I need to get 2 more firesticks for my other 2 TV's. I have internet from ATT. I plan on signing up for Youtube TV. What kind of internet do I need? I know I will be using far more data, so should I get unlimited from another company? Will I have to get a modem to carry the wireless connection to the second floor? Right now I have a uverse modem. I guess ATT will want their modem back. I plan on disconnecting from ATT this week but I want to be prepared for decisions I have to make when I talk to them. Thank you

No offense but you may want to learn more about internet providers and how it all works before cutting the cord. I would suggest keeping your fiber internet if you have that. For 3 streaming devices, you want the fastest possible (1g svc).

Everything becomes do it yourself when the magic stock doesn't work. I would do both att tv and stick concurrently until you are sure it works for at least a month.

I was a big fan of Mobdro.. Is there anything out there that comparable? Right now I am using TVMOB and LIVENETTV. But sometimes those two buffer or lock up a lot.. I want to stay away from KODI I never had any luck with that thing.. Not sure if it is the proper terminology.. But I want just a stand alone APK that gets the live channels and I can find the installation instructions on youtube or on the net.... Thanks for the help...

Depends on what you want to watch, I use Puffin browser ($20 yr and worth it!) to watch 123 tv now for four letter word sports and a few other channels, if you don't have ota capability there is Puffer you can get on the same browser which is a network tv offered by Stanford for free (requires registration no cc or payment). Plex, Pluto both now offer live channels for free too & there are lots of others like USTV247 but it requires you to purchase a VPN to unlock the best channels.

I’m a couple years too late to this cord cutting thing, but I’m really trying now

Been paying $119/month for xfinity Wi-Fi + tv. ProMotion just ended and now it’s $187/month.

We don’t really watch tv other than sports. I have espn+ through Verizon, so I’d like to keep the basic channels for nfl playoffs, etc (Fox, cbs, etc)

YouTubetv is like $65/month and that’s what I see most people recommending, but that doesn’t really save me a bunch.

Xfinity internet only is like $90/month, and that’s the only option in my area unfortunately.

Can I just get some rabbit ears and put on the top of my tv?

After much research, I tried Xtreme IPTV. Holy shite! If there is a better one, I sure would like someone to tell me what it is. $25/month for two connections and I get EVERYTHING! VPN is mandatory for this, so have it ready and set up before hand. Still trying to figure out if I can set this up on an iphone. Directv Stream has spoiled my wife.

Just got rid of DirecTV. Going with YouTube Tv.

There are equivalent ones for sure that aren't as expensive. Invite only though. The two I use are around $60 for 6 months.

Possibly. I don't think all markets have all the locals. Mine happens to so I don't need one. I know for sure that some of the other platforms, such as Sling, definitely don't have locals in all markets.

LG G2 77" TV

Digital antenna
Roku 4k Dolby (2022 unit)

LG live channels
Netflix
Peacock
Hulu
Disney+
ESPN+
Amazon Prime
Shudder
Paramount+
FiteTV NWA wrestling package

They could stop creating content this second and I could never watch all that's available to me, if I set up camp in front of the tube for the rest of my life.

It's mind-boggling as to how much free content is available on the LG channels and Roku alone.

5 connections, 2 different IPTV feeds, and a VOD for 25 a month. Contentwizards.
