You may want to ask why we are encouraging you for an IPTV service?

While we are no personal spokesperson for the IPTV service, but in our experience and experimentation we have found IPTV service to be two folds better and productive than cables pay TV subscriptions.

We say this mainly because it is cheap streaming with a huge bulk of quality content.

Fact: An annual survey of 2018 suggested that an average American was saving up to $768 annually by cutting the cord.

Apart from the reasonable price packages, most IPTV services are offering a bundle of at least 2000+ channels. These bundles are offering a variety of categories to choose from; Sports, Movies Shows, International content, News subscriptions, kids and adult content, in short everything under one service.

The best part is you do not have to pay extra for any value added features such as split screen features, Video on Demand feature which is something you do not get on your conventional TV boxes.

Moreover, you can customize the bundles, based on the features, connections and categories you wish for yourself. You even get to keep a tab on the on-air shows, sports programs and news broadcasts.

Honestly you get more from an IPTV service than a fully loaded burrito from Chipotle.

Despite all the High VOD availability, at times you do require an IPTV recording feature from an IPTV service.

For example, while testing out we used Area 51 IPTV service. So in Playlist Name we simply wrote area 51. For server port, we went into the Area 51 IPTV service details from Apps settings and we found the server port. Simply type in the server port of your respective IPTV service.

  • After you have written in your information simply click on OK.
  • You will see the small notification pop-up of the New Playlist added message on your Record IPTV app.

Note: In case if the streaming show or channel is buffering a lot or reloading, the recording will also come to halt. This means you will be able to record only bits and pieces of your chosen shows. It is hence suggested that you have multiple IPTV services added in IPTV extreme app so that you can switch from one to another in case one of them is showing constant streaming errors.
  • Go back to the timer’s tab where your recording was being done. Once the recording of the show has been done, the big circle icon displayed on the right will turn green. This means the recording was successful and you are good to go view it any time of the day.
