Installing IPTV Smarters on Firestick lets you bring together the best IPTV services available out there and enjoy awesome viewing features such as multi-screen. In itself, IPTV Smarters won’t provide you with any content, but it will let you integrate IPTV services and stream with ease.

One of the reasons behind the popularity of IPTV Smarters is that you can also install it on mobile devices, and it is available in several official stores. However, the streaming app is not available on the Amazon Store, so you’ll need to sideload it on Firestick and Fire TV. 

If this is the first time you’re encountering the term ‘side-load’ or ‘sideloading,’ you’ll likely feel apprehensive towards the idea of ‘jailbreaking’ a Firestick. Relax! No one’s going to jail just yet. And we’ve written an explainer article with a guide about this.

Complete Guide to Jailbreaking Your Amazon Firestick 

In this post, we’ll show you how to install IPTV Smarters Pro on Firestick, as well as Android TV and iOS devices. We’ll also look at the features offered by the streaming platform and how to use it. More importantly, we’ll teach you how to keep your digital privacy so you can watch your favorite content securely.

IPTV Smarters Pro: Firestick Step-by-Step Installation

Since IPTV is not available on the Amazon Store, our only option is to install it using its APK file. The best way to do that is by using an app known as Downloader. 

Step 1: Install Downloader

Downloader allows Firestick users to download and install third-party apps as the device doesn’t allow downloads via the browser. The app is easy to install as it is available on the Amazon Store. 

How to install Downloader on Firestick

1. On the Firestick main screen, go to Find, then click Search.

2. You’ll now get a Window where you can type what you are looking for. Start typing Downloader, and you’ll get a suggestion on the screen. Click it to search for the app.

3.Downloader should now appear as the first suggestion. Click on it.

4. You’ll now get an option to download the app. Click Download, and the installation process will start.

Do not open Downloader yet, as there are some pre-requisites before you can use it. Note that the procedures in step 2 only need to be done once.

Step 2: Prep Your Firestick

By default, Firestick blocks the installation of third-party apps. This means that you will need to tweak a few settings before you can install IPTV Smarters on Firestick. On top of that, we also advise that you disable data sharing. This will enhance your privacy (on top of using a VPN) by preventing Amazon from spying on you.

Allow “Apps from Unknown Sources”

Allowing “Apps from Unknown Sources” will let you install apps you sideload via Downloader. Follow the steps below to grant your permission.

1. Go to the Settings from the Firestick home screen and click My Fire TV.

Select MyFire TV

2. Select Developer options.

Developer options highlighted in the My Fire TV menu, find Developer options.

3. If you are using Firestick Gen 2, Firestick 4K, or Fire TV Cube, you can allow installation by clicking Apps from Unknown Sources. This will change the state from Off to On.

Turn on Install Unknown Apps

If you are using Firestick Lite or Firestick Gen 3, clicking the option will give you a list of various apps. Click Downloader to turn the state to On.

Now, your device can install apps through Downloader.

Turn off Amazon data collection settings

Amazon usually collects data on the apps you use and how you use them. If you are a privacy-conscious user, you may need to disable this option to keep your streaming habits to yourself.

To do so:

1. Go to Settings and select Preferences.

2. Choose Privacy Settings.

3. Now, click “Device Usage Data” and “Collect App Usage Data” to turn them off.

Step 3: Download the IPTV Smarters APK

Now that we have Downloader and we have enabled it to sideload apps, we can proceed to downloading the IPTV Smarters APK.

1. Go to Apps & Channels and open Downloader. If it’s the first time you are opening the app, it will ask for storage access. Grant it by clicking Allow

Allow button highlighted in the permission dialog to give the Downloader app access to photos, media and files on Firestick

2. The app’s main screen has a URL text box wherein you can type the URL for the file you want to download. Enter the URL for IPTV Smarters APK – https://vpnch.ec/iptv-smarter, then click Go.

How to Use IPTV Smarters for Firestick

IPTV Smarters is simply a player, not an IPTV service. This means that to use it, you will need a good IPTV service such as Apollo Group TV. Of course, you can go for other IPTV services of your choice.

The great thing about IPTV Smarters is that you can also use multiple IPTV services within the app. All you will need to do is add the various profiles.

If you already have an IPTV service, you can go ahead and open IPTV Smarters. The app will require you to choose between a mobile and a TV interface on the first use. For Firestick, continue with the auto-selected TV option.

The app will then prompt you to accept the user agreement. You can go through it then click Accept.

From there, the IPTV Smarters log-in (add user) page will appear.

Here, you can choose how you want to add your IPTV service. If your provider offers Xtream Codes, that option is better as it avoids typing the long m3u URL.

 If not, we suggest that you connect your Firestick with the official Firestick mobile app as it allows you to paste URLs onto Firestick (it’s available on both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store).

Here’s how to log in using your m3u URL, which is the most popular option.

After adding your playlist, you’ll now get the main IPTV Smarter home screen.

Now, you can play available live TV channels by going to Live TV.

If your IPTV service provides movies & TV shows, you can access them by clicking the respective options.

One interesting feature that you can use is the multi-screen option which allows you to watch up to 4 TV channels at the same time. To use it, click Multi-Screen while on the main page. 

From there, select the view you’d like, and you’ll be able to add channels. This feature can be useful if you want to watch more than one live sporting event.

Streaming via IPTV Smarters using the multi-screen feature

IPTV Smarters Pro also has several features that you can unlock by purchasing the app’s premium version. These include:

  • External EPG sources
  • Picture-in-picture view
  • Master Search
  • Parental control
  • Ability to change player and player settings
  • Speed test
  • Other settings like Stream and Date/ Time format.

Note that the free version still allows you to add multiple IPTV services and access them using the platform.

Apart from its features and functionalities, one thing that makes IPTV Smarters one of the most popular IPTV players is its compatibility. Apart from Firestick, you can also install the app on:

  • Windows
  • Mac
  • iOS
  • Android TV

The iOS and Android TV apps are available in the respective app stores.

How to Install IPTV Smarters on Android TV Boxes and Android TVs

Android TV is a slight variation of the Android OS used on smartphones, with the only difference being that it is meant for streaming devices. Since IPTV Smarters supports these devices, it is also available on the Play Store version of Android TV.

To install the app, just open Play Store and follow a process similar to that of Android smartphones, which we will describe below. If your Android TV Box/Stick does not have Play Store, you can sideload the app by using Downloader, a process similar to what we’ve just laid out for Firestick.

How to Install IPTV Smarters on Android Smartphones

You can install IPTV Smarters on Android Smartphones by downloading the app from the Google Play Store.

Here’s how to do so:

How To Use ExpressVPN for Private IPTV Streaming

IPTV services provide questionable streams as some are free, and most of the rest provide unlicensed content (which is why IPTV Streamers Pro is not available on the Firestick store). Since IPTV Smarters allows you to use any IPTV service, you need to be careful and ensure that you stream privately. This will let you enjoy the service without looking over your shoulder, and you’ll also bypass any geo-restrictions that you may encounter.

ExpressVPN is easily the standout VPN for streaming, and it is the one we recommend for Firestick. The VPN provides excellent speeds, great features, and best-in-class privacy and security levels. It comes with a fantastic app for Firestick, and below is how to get started.

Step 1: Sign Up with ExpressVPN

The first thing you need to do is create an ExpressVPN account. The process will only take you a few minutes.

1. Head over to the ExpressVPN website and click Get ExpressVPN.

2. You will be redirected to the Order Page, where you can select from three subscription plans. Note that the longer the subscription, the more value you get.

2. Provide your email address and password to log in. After clicking Log In, Firestick will warn you that ExpressVPN can monitor your traffic. This is nothing to worry about, as VPNs work by tunneling your traffic. The traffic will be encrypted, so nobody will be able to know what you are doing, including Amazon and your ISP. Just click OK.
