PVR IPTV Simple Client

Learn how to watch live TV in Kodi. With the help of PVR IPTV Simple Client add-on, which supports M3U playlist and streaming Live TV, you’ll be able to set up IPTV in Kodi to watch live TV.


I’m assuming you already have Kodi installed on your Android TV box or smartphone. The other things you need are the M3U playlist URL and the EPG URL from the service provider.

M3U Playlist URL is used to stream the live TV while the EPG URL is used for the channel guide. You can get both URLs from the service provider if you are using paid service.

Otherwise, you can find lots of free channel M3U playlist URL and EPG URL on the internet for free. If you can’t find both, at least you must have the M3U playlist URL.
