How to Install and Use TiviMate Pro APK on Android TV

Share this post

TiviMate Pro APK is one of the best IPTV Players designed specifically for the Android TV big screens. With TiviMate you can watch live TV channels from your IPTV provider on Android set-top boxes.

TiviMate comes with a free version and a premium one. The free version of TiviMate seems enough for users with one playlist who don’t watch too often. If you use IPTV more often, it’s worth upgrading to the pro version. This costs $4.99 per year and allows you to install the app on up to five devices.

The app supports multiple playlists, renaming of channels and categories, and hidden categories. You can import your own channel logos, customize the order in which channels appear in the TV guide, and take advantage of the search feature (which works for both channel names and currently playing shows).

IMPORTANT! TiviMate doesn’t provide any TV sources. You need to add a playlist from your IPTV provider to be able to watch live TV channels.
