Extremely important reminder

Using a VPN for SMART IPTV applications is highly recommended. And if you're too lazy to read all my reviews of the various VPN providers, here's the one I'd mainly recommend: it's NordVPN. It's the best VPN and the most suitable as an IPTV VPN. It has the most servers, speeds are top-notch, applications are super-easy to use, and the company is based in Panama.

If you're using an Android box, simply download the VPN application directly from the Playstore. Enter your login and that's it.

If you use a television for your IPTV subscriptionTo protect yourself, you need to install the VPN on your router. It's also for this last reason that it's easier to use an Android box as a box, as the VPN installs in a single click! Read my guide if you're a little confused about how to use VPN for Smart TV. Installation is simple, just follow my instructions and the photos in the tutorial. Don't neglect this step, it only costs a few dozen euros, is very simple to set up and can really save you a lot of trouble.

In a nutshell:

  • If you have an Android box or a TV running Android TV, then you don't need a router.
  • Otherwise, you need to buy a router to install the VPN on it.
