How to Install Smart IPTV (SIPTV) on FireStick & Android (2023)
In this tutorial, I will show you how to install Smart IPTV on FireStick, Fire TV, FireStick 4K, Fire TV Cube, Android TV Boxes, Smart Android TV, and Android Mobiles.
Smart IPTV is an IPTV service that lets you access your IPTV subscriptions from multiple IPTV service providers. You can say that it is an IPTV management service for the end-users.
The most important thing to note about Smart IPTV is that it does not offer any channels or playlists of its own. It lets you stream channels that you have access to from other IPTV subscriptions. The biggest benefit of this app is that you can access channels from multiple IPTV subscriptions in one place. This eliminates the need to install multiple apps for multiple IPTV services.
You need to import the channel playlists from your IPTV subscriptions either using an EPG URL, M3U URL, or a playlist file saved in your local storage.
Smart IPTV is a paid service. However, there are NO recurring charges. You just need to pay a one-time activation fee of 5.49 EUR or nearly 6.10 USD.
Use the MAC address in your Smart IPTV app to activate Smart IPTV paid service (more about it in the ‘How to use’ section later in the guide).
There is a free 7-day trial as well, which you can explore before buying the paid subscription. You may start the trial with the same MAC address.
Note: Do not forget to activate the paid service before the expiration of the 7-day trial if you want your playlists migrated.
Attention, FireStick Users!
Governments and ISPs constantly monitor your online activity, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick could lead to serious trouble. Currently, your IP 126.96.36.199 is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend getting the best FireStick VPN to mask your IP address and securely stream your favorites.
I personally use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN available. Not only is it easy to install on any device, it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, if you’re not 100% satisfied, you can always get a refund. ExpressVPN is currently also offering a whopping 3 extra months free on their annual plan!
Is Smart IPTV Safe & Legal?
Even though Smart IPTV is unavailable on Amazon App Store, it is listed on the other official stores, such as Google Play Store and Apple Store. Therefore, it must be safe.
However, for FireStick, you need to get the APK file of Smart TV from an external source. Therefore, there could be doubt whether they host the original APK. I scanned the APK file of the app with Virus Total and found that it was safe:
Again, since the app is hosted on some official App Stores, it’s supposed to be legal. However, there’s a catch.
You can use Smart IPTV to stream TV channels through third-party or unofficial IPTV providers. While the app itself is legal, the third-party streams it pulls from unverified sources may not necessarily be.
I do not encourage copyright violations. However, I am an advocate of privacy. Therefore, I recommend using a VPN with Smart IPTV to maintain your privacy. ExpressVPN is the most reliable and fastest VPN in the market.

Quick overview and features of Smart IPTV on FireStick
1. Smart IPTV is not a free service. However, thankfully, you just need to pay a one-time fee, which I would say is reasonable (5.49 EUR or around 6.10 USD).
2. Smart IPTV does not host any channels or playlists. You must import the playlist from a service provider. This means you need to have a subscription from at least one IPTV service provider.
3. You can add multiple playlists from multiple providers.
4. While Smart IPTV is available via the official Google Play Store on other Android devices, it needs to be sideloaded onto your Amazon FireStick.
5. Smart IPTV lets you access all your IPTV subscriptions from one location.
So, this is our guide on how to install Smart IPTV on FireStick, Android TV Boxes, and other Android devices. You must have already figured out that Smart IPTV requires a one-time subscription fee of 5.49 EUR. Given the fact that it lets you access multiple IPTV services from a single location, I would say it is a reasonable amount. You just need to pay it once and you have the service for a lifetime.
Do not forget that Smart IPTV on FireStick or other devices will not give you access to any channels or playlists of its own. It doesn’t host any. You must have a subscription from another IPTV provider.
