you need an Android TV Box for streaming IPTV. There are plenty of tv boxes available for Android and from them, very few are the best and most reliable. TiviMate and Nvidia Shield are the best of them. 

IPTV Recorder For Windows:

VLC Media Player is the best media player and quite easy to record any video stream.

Recording For macOS:

I will prefer VLC Media Player again as Windows and macOS are quite similar.

How to Record IPTV on Firestick:

The process will be the same as for Android devices. However, the limited 8GB internal storage can become an issue for recording files and storing files respectively.

The main thing is, that your device must be capable of storing long video files for working smoothly and well. And if you wish to watch an IPTV channel at the same time while recording, make sure to take IPTV Service with “2 connections” from your IPTV provider. One connection will be used for recording and the other one will be used for viewing the channel too.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I record and watch IPTV simultaneously?

Definitely, but there is a condition to keep in mind. If you want to watch and record an IPTV channel simultaneously, make sure your IPTV service provider allows you to use at least 2 connections at a time because one connection will be used to record IPTV streams and the other will be used to watch the channel.

What if I don’t have enough built-in storage?

So Simple! Just use additional devices such as HDMI splitters and capture cards. It will let you record directly to your computer hard drive. An interesting fact is HDMI capture card and large-capacity USB flash drive allow you to expand the storage of the “Fire TV Stick” even without connecting it to a computer.

Watching IPTV service is not illegal in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada & Europe but it is not allowed to rebroadcast the copyrighted content. You can use VPNs for streaming to protect your internet traffic and hide your online activity from streaming services and your ISP.
