The IPTV Smarters Pro app is one of our favorite apps for setting up IPTV on a PC or Android box.

The interface is fast and intuitive. The app offers unique features we have not seen in other apps like multi-screen capability. This gives users the ability to watch two channels simultaneously making it useful for multitasking between sports, news, or keeping up with the markets.

Performance on the either stream did not seem to suffer. But this can be variable based on internet connection, reliability of the streams, performance specs your Windows computer.

What’s also nice is the Smarters app had option to load the M3U playlist via an EPG guide which looks like a traditional satellite menu (skip to see image of EPG guide).

With the M3U playlist of the server the EPG automatically populated. You can see how the interface of the app in the image below. With M3U it’s the EPG guide is not 100% accurate and some of the channels are missing timing.

Next, we’ll take look at the multi-screen feature. There’s currently 6 options. We chose two screens allow to broadcast two separate channels simultaneously.

With this option the screen with the orange border plays the stream while the other is muted. This way you can watch the score of two different sporting events or keep up with the news / weather.

It’s definitely a nice feature and we didn’t notice any performance issues on BlueStacks. This should work even better if using IPTV Smarters on Android.

IPTV Smarters is a great app if you’re using an IPTV M3U playlist. We’ve found it to have a lot of features that other apps don’t offer. The app is well developed and we did not find it to be slow which is surprising considering we are using it through the bluestacks emulator.

On Windows this is one of the better alternatives we’ve tested.

Let me know your thoughts and what others app you’re currently using for M3U.
