This week I spent some time playing around with mobile and desktop applications that allow you to enjoy an IPTV stream. Having tested over 5 mobile apps I settled on Lazy IPTV. This is a free application that is currently available on Google Play store.
In discovering Lazy IPTV is tested several over a couple of hours and focused on simplicity as the key criteria. I wanted to give my customers alternatives to KODI for being able to stream our IPTV link. As part of the IPTVFlicks service we offer prospective customers the ability to trial our service free for 6 hours. So offering an easy to install and use service is important.
I am not saying that Lazy IPTV is the best streaming app out there, it certainly isn’t that. What I was able to do with Lazy IPTV is install and add my 6 hour free trial link and have it play all in a matter of minutes.
What was good about Lazy IPTV?
- Free via Google Play
- Add an auto updated file was easy to find and copy and paste
- Channel list loaded instantly
- Viewing channels was easy to do
What I didn’t like about Lazy IPTV?
- You will need a Video Player app installed on your Android device. There are plenty of video players that are free.
- No iOS app at the moment but we will cover iOS apps on another post.
I have added a step by step guide below:
Once you have installed the app, you need to now Add the Playlist. Select “From Internet (by URL).
Now add the url we send you into the space allocated. Name your Playlist. Ensure to select “Autoupdate Always”
Now click the three dots on the right hand side of the screen.
The list will update, this may take a few seconds. You will then get a Save button appear.
Your Android device will need a Video Player. Choose a player such as MX Player and install it on your phone. Once it has been saved, go back to your playlist, select it and you should see the full list of channels. Select your channel you wish to view and a screen will appear asking you to select the player. Select MX Player or any other you have installed and play the channel.
This is what you will see.
