What Happened to Smart IPTV?
IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) has become a popular way to consume television content in recent years. Smart IPTV was one such software application that allowed users to stream TV channels and movies on their TV screens using the internet. However, in recent times, there has been news of Smart IPTV going offline. So, what happened to Smart IPTV?
Smart IPTV Shutdown
In late 2019, Smart IPTV was reportedly removed from Samsung and LG app stores. Smart IPTV’s developer, SIPTV, stated that the software was removed due to a request from the copyrighted content providers who claimed that Smart IPTV was being used to pirate their copyrighted content.
The developer made a statement on their website, which said, “We have removed Smart IPTV application from the official stores and forbidden the software update. The reason for this is because we were informed that Smart IPTV, and other apps, are being misused, and it is our duty to act accordingly.”
It is important to note that the removal of Smart IPTV from app stores doesn’t necessarily mean that the app stops working for those who have already installed it on their devices. Users with existing installations on their devices can still use the application but cannot receive any further updates.
In the absence of Smart IPTV, there are other similar software applications available for users to enjoy TV channels and movies over the internet. The following are some of the best alternatives to Smart IPTV.
Kodi is an open-source media player software that is available on multiple platforms, including Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, and iOS. It can play various kinds of media, including TV channels, movies, music, and podcasts.
Plex is another media player software that can help you stream TV channels, movies, and other media content. It is available on various platforms, including Windows, macOS, Linux, and mobile devices.
Stremio is a software that can stream online media content from various sources, including TV channels, movies, and series. It is available on various platforms, including Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, and Android.
Smart IPTV’s popularity led to its downfall as it was being used to pirate copyrighted content. While it is no longer available on app stores, existing users can still use the application, though without any further updates. In its absence, there are other alternative options such as Kodi, Plex, and Stremio, which can help users stream their favorite TV channels and movies on their devices.
