    Have to say the IPTV really is decent. On a 24 hour trail at the moment on my android box. Definitely thinking of getting rid of Virgin such is the quality. Have 2 free-view boxes as well

    It's a game changer, I resisted it for years being a bit of a ludite but it's a fantastic setup on the Firestick, so easy to move around and the lad I'm with has buckets of movies and TV shows on it that you don't need to get streams for.

    My Internet seems to drop out from time to time on fire stick. Get message no Internet, then it comes back. Any ideas.

    how close/far is the stick from the router?
    the further away the more likely it is to drop

    It happens me now and again. I just plug out the fire stick and plug it back in. Can be annoying but luckily it doesn't occur mid stream. It's usually when I go to use it after its been idle for ages.

    Any chance you can forward on the name of your provider? On the lookout for a decent one
    Thanks

    Can I get the IPTV recommendation please? I have one but always good to have other recommended options.

    Is this one through SmartIPTV app?

    Don't go near the smart IPTV app. It's going down.

    Get the smart STB app. Much better

    I downloaded this. Any PMs with recommendations? Are there trials available to see what it's like? The one I had stopped working on SmartIPTV and the guy is selling boxes (presume they're Android boxes) to get it back. If there are good subscriptions available for an app on the tv, I'd prefer it.
