IPTV is Internet Protocol Television, an acronym that you have seen a lot in recent years and that refers to this technology used for the distribution of video signals using an IP protocol. That is, the technology takes advantage of the TCP / IP protocol to transmit video in real time and thus view television channels, series, programs, etc. But, for this, we need compatible programs or software. And that is where IPTV Smarters has become one of the essentials, one of the best programs to view IPTV lists.
What is it
IPTV Smarters is a multi- device application that allows us to use and view IPTV links on all types of devices. It is one of the most complete that we can use on Android on mobile phones and tablets but also on other devices such as sticks or boxes for televisions with this operating system. It is a very complete and legal option, although it depends on how we use it and what you use it for.
One of the strengths of IPTV Smarters is that it is very easy to use and very easy to install, without the need for complicated configurations. In addition, it has many options and functions available such as the ability to view multiscreen with PiP or playlists of series, movies and many other tools.

The application is available for Android, this being the most widely used operating system to download it, but also on other devices or operating systems. In Android it has more than five million downloads and is compatible with any version equal to or greater than Android 4.2 so we will not have compatibility problems if we want to have it on our mobile phone. In addition, the website also allows us to download directly through the APK to automatically install it on our Android phone or tablet.
If you have an Apple device we can also download it on iOS both on compatible mobiles and tablets as well as for Apple TV. From the App Store they indicate that it is compatible with any version of iOS or iPadOS higher than 9.0. In the case of Apple TV you need tvOS 11.0 or later to be compatible and you can use it.
We can download it on a computer. OPTV Smarters pro is available for Mac and for Windows by downloading it from its website. Just go to the download section and choose the type of device.
In addition, we can also download it for Samsung and LG brand televisions. Or for devices with Android TV or similar like Fire TV Stick, Nvidia Shields and other sticks whose customization layer or operating system is based on Android. In fact, from the website itself they write the following: “The Samsung Smart TV application is an incredible video transmission player that offers the possibility of watching live TV, movies and series to its customers on their Smart TV.”
One of the main problems of IPTV Smarters is that it has suffered all kinds of closures due to fraudulent use of the application. It is totally legal, one of the most complete and comfortable to see IPTV links on any device. The application was and is a mere player in which links could be inserted. However, the app was removed in 2019 without prior notice . The company that manages it, New Spark Technology, affirmed that the elimination has occurred after someone denounced the app in the Play Store, which they affirm that “like many of the ones we receive, it is false.” This was the third of many times the app has been removed from the store. Now, luckily, it has returned and we can download it but you must bear in mind that closures are common and it may temporarily disappear and reappear after a few days.
In fact, in 2019 IPTV Smarters added a message on its website making it clear that the use of the app is not intended for illegal content . They explained that “they do not support the use of their software by third parties for streaming and subscriptions, and we respect intellectual property rights and we do not support their violation by third parties.”
It doesn’t work, what alternatives are there?
If IPTV Smarters Pro does not work or it is closed again, it does not mean that we cannot see IPTV lists because there are many alternatives that fulfill the same function.
Kodi is probably the most complete and used tool for this purpose. Its advantage is that it offers us all kinds of tools and options to create a multimedia center, but this can also be a disadvantage or inconvenience for many people who are looking for something simple and comfortable without so many options or customization. Kodi is a good option and compatible with practically
Kodi is available for Android, for iOS, for Windows, for Linux, for Raspberry Pi, and for other Apple devices such as macOS and tvOS . We just have to go to their website to find the version we want and download it.
IPTV for Android
The IPTV application on Android is a good alternative if you are looking for something easy to use, complete, basic. It is very intuitive and very easy to use. It has support for M3U and XSPF playlist and playlist history for example. In addition, it allows us other options such as various types of view (grid, mosaic, list …) or parental control if we want children to use it.
It also has an optional Pro version for which we can pay if we want to eliminate advertising or access advantages and functions such as automatic playback, history, etc.
