Best IPTV Player for Windows 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista / XP

VLC Player

I don’t think VLC Player needs any introduction because it is one of the finest media players on the Windows machine. As well as it lets you play the offline media files, the VLC players also provide the support for IPTV channels. Via the m3u file system, you can easily stream your favourite programs on IPTV. You need an up to date version to watch the latest content. I prefer this player any day over any other. Below is the step by step guide to playing the IPTV channels;


  • Open VLC Player on your windows machine
  • Follow the Media -> Open Network Streams
  • Put the URL link of the video or live tv channels and paly OK
  • That’s all you need to play your favourite content on VLC player



Plex is another good player to stream live TV online using the IPTV. It is becoming more popular day by day even though it doesn’t come with a fancy user interface. The people are becoming addictive once they start using the Play, and it is one of the closest competitors of KODI, another fine IPTV play sharing a similar position with Plex.

It is capable of transcoding any media file to avoid buffering and slow loading, which is a great thing to enhance the end-user experience. However, this is not a free service, so you have to pay for what you are using. This could be an alternative if you can afford some money in favour of overall a good user experience.



Kodi is known for its media services, but it can also be used as an IPTV player. The application can be used to manage your all media files. Individually, you can play several online TV channels. By installing a different kind of addons, you would be able to play video-on-demand (VoD) and live TV.

Indeed, it gives you the option to play any media file by adding its streaming link. Ultimately, you can use it as an IPTV player on your windows machine by following the below guide:

  • Open KODI software on your PC
  • Click on TV or Radio
  • Just Enter the URL
  • Click OK to Play and stream the video


Caution: Kodi is legal if you use it with officially provided addons. It could get you into the legal trap if you are thinking to watch copyright material by using any third-party addon.


“IPTV” is another good app to stream media and live TV. If you think this is an official service by IPTV, then you are misinterpreting. The application is just like any other third party app offering you a facility to play IPTV content. Initially, you can download it without any additional cost from the official Microsoft app store. But if you want full-screen videos without any commercial ad, then you have to pay 4.99$ making it a freemium service. Use below steps to use it on your Windows 10 machine:

  • Open the app on your PC
  • Go to the Settings menu
  • Enter the URL and load your playlist
  • and Enjoy watching your favourite programs

This isn’t a player, which you can directly install on your PC. The application is designed for Android and iOS devices. But by using the emulators, you can enjoy it on your PC as well. If you love to watch the content on your smaller smart device, you are welcome to use it on your smartphone. The application brings responsive functionality to split the content according to screen size. By using an emulator you can connect it to your PC, the best one I found is BlueStack. Below is a step by step guide use GSE SMART IPTV player on your PC:

  • Install and open BlueStacks on your PC.
  • Click on Sign In and enter your Google account credentials.
  • Open Google Play Store and search for GSE SMART IPTV.
  • Select the GSE SMART IPTV app and click Install to download the app.
  • After installation, click Open to launch the app.
  • Select +Add Playlist -> Tap Add URL.
  • Enter the Playlist URL and tap, OK.
  • Select your favourite live TV channel.



ProgDVB or ProgTV is another excellent player to stream the IPTV content. The application offers some great features such as picture-in-picture support and lets you record the live radio programs. It is free to download on the company’s official website.

Interestingly, great functionality can attract you to switch into this application. By using this app, you can enjoy the HD TV channels by following the below guide:

  • As always, open the application on your Windows PC
  • Enter the URL and choose the channel
  • You can see the list of videos and choose between whatever you want to see.



MyIpTV is another great player to look forward to. However, it doesn’t give direct access to watch IPTV channels, but having an interface face, you can put the link and stream your needed content. The application is available on the Microsoft official app store if you are looking to install it. It is one of the best players to watch IPTV content on Windows 10 PC. Follow the step by step guide to enjoying services:

  • Open the app on your computer screen
  • direct to Settings -> Add new playlist and choose EPG Source
  • Enter the remote channel list name and  source
  • A list of videos and TV channels will appear. Watch your favourite program.


Free TV Player

The Free TV player lets you watch the content of IPTV on your windows PC. It is firmly not recommended, but you can use it as alternation or just for trying the new interface. It can offer you live TV channels, TV shows, Movies, and Internet Radio using the M3U file system. You can create your playlist and secure it for your future use. It is available on the official Microsoft app store without costing you any money, which means, you can download it FREE. Below is the guide to use it on your latest Windows PC:

Free TV Player IPTV

  • Open this app on your PC
  • Enter the M3U Playlist URL
  • After a few minutes, all the channels will appear
  • Click to play to enjoy your favourite content


IPTV Smarters Pro

IPTV Smarters Pro is the final IPTV player on our list to enjoy the free content on your Windows PC. Indeed, the application is designed for Android and iOS devices; you can also use it on your computer using Android emulators. As we suggested above, Blustack is one of the most excellent Android emulators, and it is free to use. Follow the same guide as we mentioned above for the other Android apps.


Final Conclusion

Most of the IPTV players mentioned above are compatible with all the major Windows 10/7/8/8.1/XP/Vista. They are holding different features and functionality, so you can choose between what suits you.

  1. I tested all of this app, but the one you didn’t talk about is the best for me : Best Player & IPTV on Windows store (3 Eur). Great management of playlist and EPG, developpers are realy cool and open. A ton of option, sure is the best.

    @ANTONIO MARTINS BERNARDINO : unfortunately VLC don’t manage EPG.
