Best Paid IPTV for Sports

Hi all,

I've done a search, and while there are some threads on the topic, they're a bit outdated. Have just learned about IPTV, and am interested in purchasing a subscription to a service.

I'm only interested in streaming sports, primarily EPL soccer and NFL, so a service that's suited to that would be ideal. I'd be using it on my laptop, and possibly PS4. It would be ideal that multiple IP's are allowed, so I could share with my brother, but not required.

Does anyone have any suggestions for IPTV services that have worked particularly well for them? There's so much info and competition, that it's hard to pick out which are quality. Thanks!

I'm going to end this thread for you right here

find two buddies, sign up for smoothstreams (cost will be no more than $30-35 per 6 months per person, cheaper if you grab an annual membership during a sale)

smash that upvote button once your'e sorted out.

Smoothstreams still allows 3 ips per subscription?

Considering it, not impressed with hockey on a few IPTV's we subbed or tried trials on. Like to find a decent service and get hockey working well on Shield TV at my home and on another Shield TV I would set up for my kid who is away at university.

smoothstreams is the best but can be expensive for your needs. If you just want NFL go with hehestreams.

IMO SS isn't as good as it used to be. Ever since they went "mainstream", the service has gone downhill. They haven't added or maintained their servers vs ppl signed up. I get constant freezing/buffering now whereas before I never did and nothing has changed on my end. It looks like to me that SS has gone chasing the $$$$.... If you split the service 3 ways with 2 other ppl, it comes out to about $25 a person for a 6 month sub which is still pretty decent.

It definitely isn't as solid as it used to be, but I don't think there is anything else that is better. I definitely have the most problems lately with Leafs games. But usually, they'll have another feed you can switch to.

OP, don't have experience with NFL games cuz I don't watch them on there, but for EPL SS will definitely cover you there. They will have any soccer game on there with multiple feeds (NBC, TSN/Sportsnet, BTN, etc.)

I agree that the reliability has gone downhill a bit but it's still good.

I thought SS limits the amount of subscribers per server to maintain their quality......maybe I'm wrong though.

i got a cheap android box and installed iptv on that... used to use iptv express, which by far had the best resolution for EPL/La Liga/Bundes but the amount of lag was driving me nuts. now I switched to voodoo, you will get 720p streams of all the sports channels (europe and middle east) and 1080p canadian ones. No lag, no disruptions. $10 a month per IP.

Use lazyman for NHL. Google it. There's a desktop app and kodi add-on.

They have MLB too but I don't watch baseball.
