Most IPTV providers give the full EPG and the bigger ones give you 7 day catch up and let you record certain channels. Ditch the kodi shit, been there done that. The plugins are hit and miss.
I am actually going through a few providers at the moment, When I find something I like (All Indian channels) I'll let you know.
Has anyone used fabiptv? Pretty slick website, just wondering if they are a reseller?
I've got a months trial running on my Kodi HTPC and the movies 'on demand' is flawless, but some of the linear channels (SS usually) stutter occasionally. I'm on 80 meg fibre which is usually rock solid.
You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.
I have toyed with IPTV in the past but never fully committed as I always had a $ky or v1rg1n subscription so never bothered.
However I have recently moved to the Netherlands and apart from BBC 1 and 2 I can't get any of the UK channels anymore though my TV. I pay for a UK Proxy which allows me to access on demand services, but I feel that for the price I'm paying I could get a IPTV setup.
Should be getting my LG OLED TV this week sometime and know that WebOS can't run Kodi, but there are some IPTV apps apparently.
Im thinking if getting a Mag box if I can't run anything from the TV itself, however I would want a 4k capable one for the future. My internet is fast enough here (300mbps down/ 30mpbs up) so I won't have any issues there. (I assume there will be no 4k IPTV just yet)
What service would people recommend? I have looked at Instant-IPTV and Necro-IPTV. Im not bothered by sports as I already have a subscription to a service that gets me everything for around £50 a year and has been solid for over 5 years for me (Service is closed to new subscribers unfortunately)
Can anyone recommend a IPTV service for a complete newbie to this? Is it worth getting a MAG 254 box?
(there are a few mentioned in this thread but from what I have read on the subject, things can change quickly)

I pay some guy in China $50 a year for a MAG sub which gives me most European channels and a full $ly package including HD channels. Other packages can give you on-demand movies/TV series but I'm more than happy with what I have.
Reliability wise, I would give it a 9 out of 10, sometimes a channel won't work but it's usually back up within a day.
There's no EPG but I can live with that. Quality is top notch. Like having the real thing.
Also another advantage a MAG box is the complete user friendliness of it. It acts just like a set-top box with nice clear graphics, channel lists and channel preview screen.
I've not used a paid for service on XBMC but my experience of free services has been a complete ball-ache. Constant updates, clumsy interface, nothing ever working the same way twice etc etc.
I can also say that I did not miss a single Liverpool game last season because even if it was a Saturday 3PM kick off, I was always able to find the game on one of the non-UK channels.

I have one from Eire but I ain't recommending it cos I don't want you cunts swamping the server!
"Where you are is what you eat. When I'm in London I'll have beans on toast for lunch. On holiday — what? Tapas? Go on then I'll have a bit. You eat whatevers in that area"
Ultimatemania is very good! They have something in place to circumvent the EPL court order.
There payment system is Down at the moment but it should be sorted in a week.
