Best IPTV Service Review- To start as a review for the best iptv service review 2020, I’d like to introduce myself first. My name is Derek and I have been practically involved in this area of technology since 2015.

It all starts from the beginning; I’d also want to share a brief technical reference of how an iptv service or system works.

Headend: It’s basically a powerful device which can capture streams from the satellite and convert it into encoded video format in nano seconds and live.

Media server: The encoded raw live streams are then processed to a media server or multiple media servers for stream supported formatting.

Middleware: This acts as a communicator between the streaming platform whether it’s an app or website and the backend supply of the streams.

Platform: A iptv platform is the base of where you would wanna watch the streams, it can be m3u links or web server.

That’s how a IPTV structure is supposed to work, and as I have mentioned it’s a very brief explanation of the process so I have intentionally skipped a lot of parts, such as hosting, caching, CDN and billing. This is a service review article covered for you to save precious time and energy after trials, and still being insecure about the service you are signing up for, because there so many to count and most of them sounds all the same.

For the reviewing I’d focus and highlight on some of the major facts and features one service provider must have and contains.

  • User friendly app for subscribers
  • Reliable and trustworthy history
  • Customer support
  • Collection of tasteful contents
  • Freedom of choice
  • Working EPG and VPN independence
  • Reasonable pricing

Based on the facts I am going to list and explain top IPTV services currently on the market.

3. Glo TV Streaming

Glo TV is Indian and American users’ choice mostly for people using High-config set-top boxes. The MyTV Online app requires a generous amount of loading and also consumes greater RAM and Caching space. The contents provided are HQ and SD, but overall customer support and app performance filters out Firestick and general tv box users positive experience.

The starting was very good as they have UK streams available and plex vod as backup, the only problem is you will need a fast VPN to acquire the service and due to VPN server lags, the streams may fail to run smooth. Yet with a good connection and open to face minor lags you may choose between the UK based content provider and service. Customer service is private and through forums.

The review article was written with practical user experience and mainly focused on App performance and contents as well as customer support availability. Me and my team has been using, working and reviewing iptv services for both business and personal purpose. The choice is always yours. Our suggestion would be simple, take a trial first and test the reliability. Do not fall for many device compatibilities and huge channel list offering, because we have learned over the years that as many contents require as many team members that can start from 10–100 people working. A service can seem charming to you with outlook and the offers, they can fail to maintain that because it’s really not an easy job. Ask yourself a question, what you really need from a service? Freedom of choice- so that you can cancel and move on. A good selection- so that you don’t miss your favorites. A live customer support- where you might want to add your requests or complains in order to get them fixed. A user-friendly app- what lets you navigate through quite easily (because you are only watching a TV with a remote after all not a Computer with keyboard and mouse).
