    Hello,

    In the App Store of the Apple TV there are many apps of IPTV (MrMc ,rIPTV ,GSE SMART IPTV ,OHM TV, etc).

    GSE SMART IPTV app works well, but the UI design is disgusting and the rest are pay, so I can't know what are their reliability and performance.

    What is recommended and does the job properly?

    Thanks.

    Welcome to iMore! I don't have any personal experience with any IPTV apps but maybe someone else around here does. Keep checking back. In the meantime, have you looked at any of the ratings and reviews for those types of apps? They're generally pretty reliable as long as there are more than a couple of reviews.

    I tested the above apps to see what is the most worth. Following a short review:

    MrMC:

    Port of KODI program, popular media center program

    Advantages:
    Support in streaming channels and IPTV devices
    Streaming content from the computer to streamer
    Familiar user interface KODI

    Disadvantage:
    Can't install external user addons/plugins
    The swipe in this app is less comfortable then another apps, it means in the default, the swipe performs one action every time, and when I change in settings to " match apple input" I can't see the real swipe, it's just jump some steps forward or backward
    No universal application

    GSE SMART IPTV:

    Support live streaming of TV channels from the internet
    There is a trial version

    Advantages:
    Support in all common formats in the internet

    Disadvantage:
    The user interface is not most beautiful
    I saw situations that the channel freezes, and I must to exit from him and return to it, and then it will be bad quality picture and it doesn't return automatically to high quality, except to exit from him and return to it
    No universal application

    rIPTV:

    Support live streaming of TV channels from the internet and streaming content from the computer to streamer

    Advantages:
    Based on codecs of VLC player
    Universal application

    Disadvantage:
    Doesn't support in all codecs of channels that broadcasting in internet
    No ability to connect to external EPG

    OHM TV:

    Support live streaming of TV channels from the internet and streaming content from the computer to streamer
    I didn't test physical this app, but clarification to support, bring these results:

    Advantages:
    Based on mostly codecs of VLC player
    When the link is mpeg-ts, the app uses in built-in codecs of apple for better performance
    Universal app soon

    Disadvantage:
    Doesn't support in all codecs of channels that broadcasting in internet


    The winner is: MrMC
