LiveNetTv works great (free) some channels might be off bit. I was surprised how well it worked. Exodus on kodi was working great for me on Raspberry Pi 3. But not so great on Firestick 4K but I did watch ANON Clive Owen movie without a hitch. In the end, I will try IPTV.

I received my Firestick LAN adapter and it works much better now. I don't think I have the most stable internet connection even though it's suppose to be 300 Mbps. I hardly hit 200 Mbps in the best of times but with Surfshark VPN activated, it goes down to 80 Mbps. I did run the speed test thru FireFox on the Firestick and I get 50 Mbps without VPN and 30 Mbps with VPN connected. Surfshark isn't good speed wise, combine that with a less then stable Rogers' connection, I guess I shouldn't be surprised the Firestick was struggling but like I said, the adapter reduced the buffering by 95%.

for anyone who use STBemu for IPTV, is there anyway I can enter the channel # to go to particular channel with the remote control? or I need something else?

Probably a third party MAG remote and an OTG cable to connect the receiver while charging the Firestick.

I don't believe 1gig is required for streaming. 100meg should be more then enough.

I ended up buying this one from Amazon.
