First, we need to know what is IPTV.
IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) is to watch live (LIVE) and on-demand (VOD) TV on the IPTV APP application through the network.
There are many kinds of media streaming, which are mainly distinguished by the national channels included in iptv stearmers. Customers in different countries use different IPTVs, such as FEXTV iptv m3u subscriptions, Iview HD series iptv streamers, SGHDX iptv player apk, iHDHD iptv code subscription, etc.
In terms of live broadcast (LIVE), some IPTV channels also have rewatching and time shifting. Generally, you can choose the programs of each radio station in different time periods within a week, and choose the ones you like or drop, so that the user experience will be better.
In general, the the streaming is no longer a simple passive TV viewing, but a better choice for your favorite chennels.
The above are the functions of the popular smart TV or VOD systems operated by operators on the market. In fact, there is no uniform standard for the functions of IPTV. The main purpose of running an IPTV system is to meet people’s demand for TV programs. People in different countries like to watch different channels, and different TV streaming application can meet the needs of different people.
Many TV stations in foreign countries are private, the subscription price of these TV channels is very expensive. IPTV apps allows people to watch more TV channels at a lower price.
Then we need to know what is an Android TV box.
Android TV box carries the traditional TV box with the android system launched by google company, and connects the TV with the Internet to make the TV a smart platform like smartphones and tablet computers, combining the network and TV to become a new set of entertainment system. Users can install and uninstall software, games and other applications by themselves to achieve “unlimited content, unlimited applications” of this type of TV. However, the programs watched by traditional TVs are fixed and cannot be connected to the Internet, nor can they control TV programs according to consumers’ own preferences, and do not have content and applications that can be loaded.
People buy set-top boxes mainly to subscribe to IPTV, because all Android boxes can install IPTV apk, but because Android boxes are divided into Google certified Android boxes, also known as ATV Android boxes, and Android boxes that are not certified by Google but based on AOSP (Android Open Source Project). The two Android boxes have different ways to download IPTV apk. So next, we will introduce how to install IPTV APP on each of these two boxes.
AOSP, the full name of “Android Open Source Project”, originated by Google, is mainly used for mobile device systems. It gives you the freedom to make a fully customizable user interface, allowing the addition of custom launchers and applications so that you can create your own unique experience for your users.
The first type is the Android box based on the secondary open source development of AOSP (Android Open Source Project).
Which of these Android boxes are more compatible with IPTV APPs?
The compatibility between the Android box and IPTV APP mainly depends on the chip of the Android box. After the market test, the known chips with relatively strong compatibility are Amlogic S905X3, and the boxes equipped with this chip are X88 Pro X3 and H96 Max X3.
The latest chips have not been tested by the market, such as X4 chips, so there is no special recommendation. Amlogic S905X4 is currently known to be incompatible with Iview HD/Xtrix TV / ATV/iview HD Plus / Xtrix TV Plus / ATV Plus. We will do a detailed introduction after we test them.
Most Rockchip chips are not recommended, but you can try, or confirm with the seller whether they have been tested before purchasing. Currently, we have tested and recommended H96 Max-RockChip 3318 and MX1-SE-RockChip 3228A.
If you subscribe to FEXTV iptv streaming or 88TV iptv app, it is better not to buy an Android box with RockChip 3566 chip, such as H96 Max, X88 Pro 10,X96 X6, T95 Plus, HK1 RBOX R2, HK1 RBOX R3,etc.
