If you have issues or the channels don‘t load, try force closing the app and clear cache/data before retrying.
You can add multiple playlists into IPTV Smarters if you have other M3U lists you want to use.
Channels can sometimes go offline. Check StatusPrince to see if a channel is down before troubleshooting.
If certain channels won‘t play, it may be due to regional restrictions. A VPN like ExpressVPN can help bypass these.
