What is IPTV?
Let understand what IPTV is in the first place to get the most out of it. iPTV has been defined on Wikipedia as:
Internet Protocol television (IPTV) is the delivery of television content over Internet Protocol (IP) networks. This is in contrast to delivery through traditional terrestrial, satellite, and cable television formats. Unlike downloaded media, IPTV offers the ability to stream the source media continuously. As a result, a client media player can begin playing the content (such as a TV channel) almost immediately. This is known as streaming media.
In a layman terms, this simply means that IPTV allows you to broadcast and watch TV channels without the need of installing a cable TV (as is the common practice world wide). With the advent of the World Wide Web (WWW), you no longer need to broadcast any channel, you would only have to find a streaming server URL to start watching IPTV free.

M3U stands for MP3 URL or Moving Picture Experts Group Audio Layer 3 Uniform Resource Locator. Don’t worry if you can’t remember it full name because you just have to remember that you will have to find a URL that ends with or contains
.m3u. There are thousands of M3U links available to just grab and start watching IPTV free right now. But they won’t have all the channels that you would like to watch, so in that way, you will have to find and make your own playlist over time.
