Now let‘s go through how to get this set up on your device.
Installing IPTV Smarters Pro on Firestick & Android TV
For this guide, I‘ll be using an Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max. But these instructions will work on any Fire TV model. It‘s the same process for Android TV and Google TV devices as well.
Here are the steps to get IPTV Smarters installed:
Step 1: Enable Downloader App
We‘ll use an app called Downloader to sideload and install IPTV Smarters Pro.
Here‘s how to get Downloader setup on your streaming device:
From the home screen, open the "Find" option and search for Downloader.
Select the Downloader app from the search results.
Choose Download or Get to install it.
Once the install finishes, you‘ll see a "Ready to Launch" message.
Return to the home screen and open Settings.
Select My Fire TV > Developer Options.
Note: If you don‘t see Developer Options, refer to the steps at the end of this section to enable it.
Click Apps from Unknown Sources.
Find Downloader and turn on Unknown Sources for it.
Downloader is now ready to sideload apps like IPTV Smarters Pro!
Step 2: Sideload IPTV Smarters Pro APK
Next, we‘ll use Downloader to install the IPTV Smarters Pro APK file:
Launch the Downloader app from your home screen.
Highlight the URL box at the top and click the center button on your remote to bring up the on-screen keyboard.
Enter the code 250931 and select Go.
This will redirect you to the download page for IPTV Smarters Pro.
Choose the IPTV Smarters Pro APK file and click Download.
Once the download completes, select Install.
You‘ll see an "App Installed" message when it finishes.
That‘s all there is to it! IPTV Smarters Pro is now installed on your Firestick or Android TV device. Pretty simple right?
Now we just need to complete the setup process.
Configuring IPTV Smarters Pro
After installing IPTV Smarters Pro, launch the app from your home screen to begin setup:
First, choose your preferred interface layout:
- Select TV for Firestick, Android TV, or Google TV.
Next, pick your login method:
- If your IPTV service uses Xtream Codes, choose that login option.
- If your provider uses M3U, select Load Playlist and enter your M3U URL.
Make sure to input your username and password credentials into the M3U link where indicated.
- Enter your account info and click Add User.
- The "User Added Successfully" message means you‘re ready to start streaming!
That covers the basics of getting setup. But let me share some pro tips for customizing Smarters Pro and getting the most out of it.
Advanced Setup Tips & Tricks
Integrate External Video Players
You can integrate external media players like MX Player or VLC for enhanced playback and controls:
First, install the video player app if you don‘t have it already.
In Smarters Settings, go to Player > Add Player.
Select your preferred media player.
Choose the player for categories like VOD, Series, etc.
This allows you to use features like hardware decoding on an external player. It‘s the optimal setup.
Enable the EPG Guide
Having an electronic program guide makes browsing channels much easier:
If you login using Xtream Codes, the EPG will load automatically.
For M3U setups, you‘ll need to manually add the EPG URL:
Go to EPG > Add EPG in the Smarters Pro menu.
Enter your provider‘s EPG link.
Click Add EPG.
Your channels and programming schedule will then populate in the guide.
Create Favorite Channels Lists
To make accessing your most-watched channels easier:
Highlight a channel and click the heart icon to favorite it.
Open the Favorites section to access bookmarked channels.
You can create multiple favorites lists organized by category.
This saves you time instead of searching through a huge channel list.
Set Up Parental Controls
Limit access to mature content with the parental control options:
Go to Settings > Parental Control.
Create a PIN code.
Choose age restrictions and set channel limitations.
A PIN will be required to open blocked content. Useful for families!
Enable Automatic Updates
To ensure you always have the latest version of IPTV Smarters Pro:
Go to Settings > Updates.
Toggle on "Auto update on app start" and choose interval.
This will keep the app updated with the newest features and fixes.
Turn Off Auto-Launch on Boot
I recommend disabling auto-launching of the app when your device starts:
Go to Settings > General.
Toggle off "Auto-start this app on device boot."
This improves general performance and boot time of your streaming device.
How to Use IPTV Smarters Pro
Now that you have Smarters Pro installed and configured, let‘s briefly go over how to use it for live TV streaming:
- Live TV – Access your live channel streams. You can use the EPG guide or channel list.
- VOD – Watch video-on-demand movies and TV shows if available from your provider.
- Series – Streaming TV series on demand.
- TV Guide – Launches the EPG programming schedule.
- Recordings – Playback and manage your DVR recordings.

Navigating the app is very intuitive with a remote control on your TV.
Take advantage of tools like the Search function or use your remote‘s channel buttons when watching TV.
You now have everything you need to enjoy smooth IPTV streaming with Smarters Pro!
IPTV Smarters for iOS
While IPTV Smarters Pro isn‘t available on iPhone or iPad, you can use the Smarters Player Lite iOS app:
- Download Smarters Player Lite from the App Store.
- When you launch it, simply sign in using your account info.
- Provides access to your live TV and VOD libraries.
- More limited features than the Pro version but still useful.
It delivers your IPTV service directly to your mobile device for on-the-go streaming.
Important Legal Disclaimer
While IPTV Smarters Pro itself is a legal application, please keep in mind:
Streaming copyright-protected content without permission may violate local laws in your region.
I recommend using a VPN for additional privacy when using third-party apps like IPTV Smarters Pro.
You must have an existing IPTV streaming subscription in order to use this app. The player itself does not provide any live TV streaming.
I hope this guide has equipped you to successfully install and configure IPTV Smarters Pro on your streaming device. Let me know if you have any other questions!
