ROKU made it easy to Use IPTV!
Cable TV is now almost dead, as many TV networks and service providers are finally shifting their business portfolio permanently online. The demand for IPTV service has never been very high. The price of smart streaming gadgets is also getting affordable.
There are mainly 2 types of IPTV services. The initial one is VOD (video on demand), where you have the choice to pick a TV or movie show from the content library. It is the most famous IPTV service. Applications like Prime Video and Netflix are a few examples of VOID services. The second one is known as live IPTV, which will provide you access to live Television channels. Examples contain FuboTV, BBC iPlayer, Sling TV, YouTube TV and more.
Most of these services are paid, which means you have to pay a yearly or monthly subscription to access the content. Anyway, little IPTV service providers use the M3U IPTV protocol to offer users with live Television channels through the internet. The demand of these services is rising because of its cheap price. The reason behind such an affordable price is the setup process. These services do not come bundled in an application interface. It needs users to use an IPTV player to load the M3U Playlist file to get entry to the service.
