This tutorial will teach you How to Record IPTV on any Android-powered device.
Replacing cable and satellite with an IPTV Service is becoming more popular across the world, which saves you a lot of money.
One big feature that has been missing is the ability to record IPTV on streaming devices.
This is where IPTV Players come in handy with apps like TiviMate, which is the most popular IPTV player available.
Although many of us no longer require recorded television due to all of the on-demand content available, there are still times when this is needed.
There are some broadcasts that are typically difficult to find through on-demand outlets such as sports, news, special events, and daily shows.
To follow this tutorial, you will need an Android device and IPTV subscription that allows you to use their URL for setup purposes.
Some IPTV providers don’t allow this and this tutorial won’t work with those.
Although this process does work on the Amazon Firestick, the limited 8GB of internal storage can become an issue for storing files.
However, recording IPTV works perfectly with the MECOOL KM3 Box, NVIDIA SHIELD, and other Android TV Boxes that provide more internal storage.
If using a streaming device like the Firestick, I suggest viewing our storage guide below.
Your Android device must be capable of storing large video files for this solution to work well.
I am also expanding the storage on this device with a SanDisk USB 3.0 Flash Drive.
If you would like to watch an IPTV channel at the same time as you are recording, you must ensure that you order at least 2 connections from your IPTV provider.
The reason for this is because one connection is used to record IPTV streams and the other is used to view the channel that you are watching.
How To Record IPTV
The following video will take you through the necessary steps to record IPTV on an Android device.
In this tutorial, I am using my Amazon Firestick 4K, TiviMate IPTV Player, and an inexpensive IPTV service.
New Recording Functions Through IPTV Players
Although there are some services that offer a recording feature, using an IPTV player like TiviMate is more reliable.
As mentioned in the video, if using a device like a Firestick with low internal storage, it’s recommended to use external USB storage or a home media server like Plex.
For more IPTV player options, refer to our tutorials below.
You now know how to record your favorite shows using an IPTV service!
