IPTV Smarters is an IPTV platform from where you can access channel playlists from multiple IPTV subscriptions. It is somewhat an IPTV management service, much like Smart IPTV. However, unlike Smart IPTV that requires a one-time activation fee, IPTV Smarters is free (there is a paid version too with additional features, but all the basic services are free).
Please note that IPTV Smarters does not provide any IPTV services. Meaning, it does not host any channels or does not have any playlist of its own. To use this service, you will need to use the login credentials of another IPTV service. In other words, you must already have a subscription from an IPTV service provider to use IPTV Smarters on FireStick and other devices.
IPTV Smarters works only with the IPTV services that support M3U Playlists or have an Xtream Codes API.
The biggest advantage of IPTV Smarters is that it allows login from multiple IPTV subscriptions. If you use multiple IPTV services, you can access all of them from one location, IPTV Smarters. Also, the app has a user-friendly interface allowing a great streaming experience.
IPTV Smarters also lets you install and use EPG if it is included with your IPTV subscription plan.
Even though IPTV Smarters is listed on Google Play Store and Apple App Store for Android and iOS mobiles respectively, Amazon Store does not host it. Therefore, if you want it on your FireStick, you will need to sideload it.
To sideload any app on your device, you should have the option Apps from Unknown sources enabled or turned on. So, let’s take care of this part first before we install IPTV Smarters on FireStick:
– On the home screen of your FireStick, you will find the menu bar on the top
In the menu bar, select Settings
– In the Settings, choose the option My Fire TV
– When the following set of options are displayed on the next screen, click Developer Options
– Now, you need to check whether Apps from Unknown Sources is OFF or ON
Click it once if it is OFF
– A quick warning message is displayed
To keep Apps from Unknown Sources switched on, click Turn on
With this, you have configured the FireStick settings to allow installation of IPTV Smarters and other third-party apps. Follow the steps below:
1- We will first install the Downloader app
This app will help you sideload IPTV Smarter on FireStick (because browser downloads are not allowed)
2- Highlight the Search option on the home screen of FireStick
Type the name of the app (which is Downloader)
Click the Downloader option when it is displayed in the search results
Choose the Downloader icon on the following screen and download and install the app
3- You may now open the Downloader app
When you run this app for the first time, a set of prompts will appear. Dismiss them until you see the following screen
On this screen, you need to click the URL textbox on the right side (make sure Home option in the left menu is selected) where it says ‘http://’
4- Go ahead and enter the following path on this window: https://www.firesticktricks.com/smarter
Note: You may also use the shortened version of the URL firesticktricks.com/smarter
5- Give it a minute or two until the IPTV Smarter is downloaded onto your FireStick device
6- When the download has completed, the Downloader app will run the APK file and the installation will start
7- Wait for the installation to finish
8- Installation is concluded with the App installed notification
You may now choose to click OPEN and get started with IPTV Smarters
I recommend choosing DONE so that you may first delete the APK file and save some space on the FireStick storage
9- If you clicked DONE above, you will be back on the Downloader interface
10- Again, click Delete
Great! You now have the IPTV Smarters app on FireStick.

As I said before, IPTV Smarters DOES NOT have any channels of its own. It is just a facilitator which lets you stream channels you have access to through the IPTV service providers.
Therefore, to use IPTV Smarters, you must have subscribed to at least one IPTV service.
This is the window that you land on next. You need to get started by clicking either ADD USER in the top-right corner or ADD NEW USER in the middle of the screen
There are two ways to sign in to your IPTV service on IPTV Smarters
Your IPTV service MUST support M3U playlist in order for you to use it with IPTV Smarters. Not all the IPTV services do.
Typically, the IPTV service provider sends an email to you with the login details once you have successfully purchased their subscription plan. This email also contains the M3U Playlist and EPG links. If you haven’t received the links, you may contact the IPTV provider.
When you choose the Load Your Playlist or File/URL option, the app may ask you for permission. Click Allow
Here is the screen where you can enter the M3U playlist link. Make sure you choose M3U URL radio box in the Playlist Type section
In the Playlist Name section, type any name you like
In the File/URL section, type the M3U URL
Click Add User button
M3U playlist URLs are often long and difficult to type into the app, especially if you are typing with the FireStick remote.
Therefore, I recommend using the Xtream Codes API instead. They are shorter and easier to type.
However, Xtream Codes has been taken down and I am not sure if the API Codes will work any longer.
Xtream Codes API is sent to you in your email by your IPTV provider along with your M3U playlist URL. If you haven’t received them, contact your IPTV provider.
When you click Login with Xtream Codes API here is the window where you can enter your details:
This section is for the users who want to know how to access IPTV Smarters or other installed apps on FireStick.
