Tivimate is one of the most popular IPTV players and can be used in conjunction with IPTV services that provide M3U Url to watch live TV channels from IPTV providers.
Most IPTV services (eg: OctoTV IPTV)are compatible with a variety of devices, such as FireStick, Android TV, iPhone, Android phones, NVIDIA Shield, and Fire TV Cube.

What is Tivimate?
Tivimate is not to be confused with IPTV providers. Tivimate is an IPTV player that allows you to pair third-party IPTV services with M3U links, Xtream code, and you can’t simply download TiviMate and watch TV channels or movies on compatible devices. Because TiviMate doesn’t offer any TV sources. You need to add the IPTV provider’s playlist to watch live TV channels.
Note: Both the free and Premium TiviMate versions are available on the official Google Play store, but I recommend paying to upgrade to the premium version if you want to unlock more features and use IPTV a lot.
