Best M3U Playlist URLs for Free Live TV (2024)

Best M3U Playlists

This guide will provide you with an up-to-date list of the Best M3U Playlist URLs for viewing live TV channels on any device you prefer.

With the price of cable and streaming service packages continually on the rise, many are looking for alternative methods to watch Live TV without breaking the bank.

IPTV Services have gained tons of popularity but these can sometimes be unreliable and may be more expensive than what you might be looking to pay. Luckily, there are various free options that we can use that serve up hundreds if not thousands of live channels on any device.

This includes popular streaming devices such as the Amazon Firestick, Fire TV, and Android TV/Google TV Boxes which many take full advantage of for their sideloading capabilities and more.

Sideloading is the process of enabling Unknown Sources to install applications not available in the Amazon App Store or Google Play Store which many refer to as “jailbreaking“.

Besides using M3U Playlists for free streams, this is the best way to get the most out of your device for access to thousands of Movies, TV Shows, Games, Sporting Events, and more.

In this guide, we will show you how to access M3U Playlist URLs on a Fire TV Stick 4K Max. However, this will also work on any device you prefer including Android TV/Google TV Boxes such as Chromecast with Google TV, NVIDIA SHIELD, onn. Google TV Box, and more.

What is an M3U Playlist URL?

Before diving into our list of Best M3U Playlists, it is important to discuss exactly what these are. You can think of these URLs as links or files that host live channels for broadcasting.

Many of these are used by various live streaming services including both Free IPTV Apps/Websites as well as Kodi Addons and more to serve up live channels. The main reason these are created is so that users can access them with any platform they choose.

This includes via popular video players such as VLC and MX Player, as well as IPTV Players that are extremely popular including IPTV Smarters, TiviMate, NexTV, and more. Those who use the Kodi software can also integrate these which you will see in our guide below.

We provide instructions for installing these playlists within an IPTV Player as well as using a popular Kodi addon.
