TiviMate: A Brief Overview

TiviMate is one of the fastest and feature-rich IPTV apps available so far. It combines the services of IPTV with M3U links, Stalker portal, and Xtream codes. You just need to install TiviMate on your device to use the IPTV services. The app itself does not provide any media for the users; instead, the active subscription of an IPTV service is crucial for it to work.

A handy version of TiviMate is also available, known as the “premier version”. We specifically recommend it for regular users. This version helps you avail of monthly updates and features using multiple playlists and many more.

You can use Firestick to install TiviMate for streaming your content online. Firestick has the function of converting your simple TV to a smart media aerial device. It is the size of a USB, and all you need to do is plug it into your television slot. This device has a mini-charging slot and a remote to control and operate various features. Not only does it allow you to watch media online, but it helps you sideload other apps also.

So, get a downloader app first, and move on to have some changes in the setting menu of your Firestick next. It will make it easier for you to install the app on your device.

Characteristics of the TiviMate App

You are probably curious what makes this app popular? The reason could be the features it brings to its users. It gives you the facility to organize the list of media or content you like the most, in different sections, particularly in favorites, and benefits you by saving you the trouble of searching for content of your choice again and again. Plus, this app’s built-in video player is what people love the most. Some fundamental characteristics of TiviMate are listed and discussed below for you.

Easy to understand non-native languages

You often find interesting content that is not composed in your native language. How would you be able to understand that? You would probably ignore it and feel annoyed, right? You might have done this in traditional mediums, but Tivimate has brought the facility of subtitles where you have to click on the option of closed captions. Nothing more, and it starts generating captions in your native language.

Watching more than one screen at once

Some people are so obsessed with multitasking that they sometimes want to watch the content of multiple channels simultaneously. If you are one of them, TiviMate is the perfect match for you. The app also facilitates you by providing the option of Multi-view. You can go to the player menu, select multi-view mode, and enjoy streaming more than one content simultaneously.

Turning off the app feature after the scheduled time

An IPTV app has an in-built feature of a sleep timer. App turns itself off at the scheduled time. You will find the stopwatch icon on the screen of the video player, and you just need to select the time. From then on, it can automatically go to sleep on the scheduled duration. This scheduled timing helps avoid the overuse of the app.

Customization of appearance

If you get bored of the previously available theme and want to have some alternatives to change it to, you have found the right place. TiviMate’s upgraded version fulfills this demand, too. You need to visit the setting menu. From there, you can change aspects such as the color of the background, the color of selection and font size, etc. You are free to customize the appearance of your choice with no difficulty.

Moreover, you can easily edit and position the programs and organize and manage the user interface the way you like it.

Feasibility of time

Some people might be fond of a particular program, but they might not have leisure time to watch it live. In traditional television services, if one transmission has gone once, you have lost it, and you cannot watch it as per your mood and convenience. But TiviMate comes to your rescue by providing you with the feature of time feasibility.

You can watch anything anytime at your convenience. You do not need to bind yourself to a particular time for enjoying whatever you are watching.  You can easily save the content available, which prevents you from missing anything you like. Plus, you can also sync the IPTV to your mobile phones, which will minimize the need to be at a particular place during the air of your favorite show.

Is TiviMate Legal to Use?

Whenever you move to access new technology, the first question that comes to your mind is related to the legal status of that facility. You may be extra careful while using new things because you want to avoid problems. And that is understandable. 

When it comes to TiviMate, you do not need to worry. It has authentic and legal status. But you may still see some problems with the nature of the content that you wish to stream with TiviMate. 

Unlicensed IPTV service might cause trouble for you; because if any service does not have a proper license to integrate with your app, it is legally not acceptable. Plus, if you watch content declared illegal in your region, it can get you in trouble. Bear in mind that both the IPS and the government can, in specific situations, access the media history you come across.

Save Yourself From all the Legal Problems

One trick can rescue you from this problem: the use of VPN services on your Firestick. By using a VPN, you will hide your identity, and you can enjoy the available content. Although there are many options for you to choose from, ExpressVPN is the best for Firestick. You need to follow up with some simple steps to establish a proper functioning VPN connection.
