How to use IPTV Smarters on FireStick
Note: If you want to know how to access IPTV Smarters or other installed apps on FireStick, please refer to the next section
As I said before, IPTV Smarters DOES NOT have any channels of its own. It is just a facilitator which lets you stream channels you have access to through the IPTV service providers.
Therefore, to use IPTV Smarters, you must have subscribed to at least one IPTV service.
This is the window that you land on next. You need to get started by clicking either ADD USER in the top-right corner or ADD NEW USER in the middle of the screen
There are two ways to sign in to your IPTV service on IPTV Smarters
- Load Your Playlist or File/URL
- Login with Xtream Codes API
Load Your Playlist or File/URL
Your IPTV service MUST support the M3U playlist in order for you to use it with IPTV Smarters. Not all the IPTV services do.
Typically, the IPTV service provider sends an email to you with the login details once you have successfully purchased their subscription plan. This email also contains the M3U Playlist and EPG links. If you haven’t received the links, you may contact the IPTV provider.
When you choose the Load Your Playlist or File/URL option, the app may ask you for permission. Click Allow
Here is the screen where you can enter the M3U playlist link. Make sure you choose the M3U URL radio box in the Playlist Type section
In the Playlist Name section, type any name you like
In the File/URL section, type the M3U URL
Click Add User button
Login with Xtream Codes API
M3U playlist URLs are often long and difficult to type into the app, especially if you are typing with the FireStick remote.
Therefore, I recommend using the Xtream Codes API instead. They are shorter and easier to type.
However, Xtream Codes has been taken down and I am not sure if the API Codes will work any longer.

Xtream Codes API is sent to you in your email by your IPTV provider along with your M3U playlist URL. If you haven’t received them, contact your IPTV provider.
When you click Login with Xtream Codes API here is the window where you can enter your details:
