If you want to watch IPTV using your new Apple TV 4 you can do so today with the MrMC application which was released on the TV OS platform in late December 2015. You can watch IPTV on MrMC for about A$10.
TV OS is Apple’s much hyped TV platform enables a new generation of applications dedicated to the media or TV experience. This is big screen for Apple. Whilst the range of apps available on the TV OS store are limited to big brand streaming services such as Netflix, Stan, TenPlay, Ted, the future is huge and it will not take long for a huge range of games and streaming services to hit the Apple TV App store.
Apple’s TV OS is built around the new iOS 9 operating system released by Apple in 2015. The key difference with Apple TV however is that some (no details on how much) games and other applications will be exclusive to Apple and exclusive to Apple TV. As an example, there’s a Guitar Hero game coming to the Apple TV and another music game called Beat Sports that’s exclusive. All in all, it looks like Apple’s doing what everyone predicted they’d do years ago: using the massive number of iOS games and gamers out there and bringing it to the living room.
We have received lots of emails from Apple TV 2 and Apple Tv 3 owners wanting to use our services but not knowing how to install an IPTV app to their Apple hardware. From what I have read, the only way to do this effectively is the jailbreak the device. With Apple TV 4 however, you can now watch IPTV on MrMC.
What is MrMC?
MrMC is the first app developed which brings KODI to the Apple TV. Whilst it will not be the last, using MrMC you now have an easy way to enjoy what many others have enjoyed via their PCs or Android Media Boxes all on the Apple TV 4. MrMC is not a full version of KODI, but it does provide the core (approved features) including:
- Stream videos, music, and images from your local network storage
- Digital audio pass-through support
- Internal database storage to host and retrieve media metadata
- ffmpeh transcoding of media
Whether you love KODI or not, until more apps begin to appear on the TV OS app store, this will be your best option. I haven’t experienced the app myself as such but going off the below videos, it seems that you can now enjoy and watch IPTV with MrMC.
The process for setting up an external playlist is exactly the same as using KODI on your PC or Android Box. The PVR Client list is provided as is the PVR Simple Client. Through this Addon, you can either add your own M3U list or an auto updating list like that offered by IPTVFlicks.
Here is a second video worth viewing.
