StbEmu (Pro) , previously known as IPTV STB Emulator, is a MAG emulator application for Android 5.0+, which makes it possible to load IPTV web portals, designed to run on IPTV STBs (Stb-Top-Boxes), on Android-based devices, like phones, tablets and TV boxes. At this moment the application supports emulation of multiple STBs created by Ukrainian company Infomir, like MAG 250, MAG 270 or MAG 322. However, to take full advantage of the StbEmu Pro APK, we will need certain elements:
- IPTV service package.
- URL of the portal.
- MAC address.
These last two details must be provided by the IPTV provider. From here it will be necessary to configure our profile , which is the most complicated part of the process. Here we will have to change the name, configure the portal, add the URL, choose the STB model, the MAG version and the screen resolution, among other details.
Basically this application allows you to have the various television signals at hand at a fairly low price in order to contribute to your entertainment. It is intended for professional use because any wrong move can cause the application to have difficulties.
In addition to classic live TV with EPG, the app also supports media libraries, radio stations, favorites and different profiles so that multiple portals can be used.
