The following guide shows how to install Tivimate on Firestick, Fire TV, and Android TV devices.
This is one of the Best IPTV Players for streaming live channels on any device.
Many users pair TiviMate with IPTV services to enhance their streaming experience.
It’s important to mention there is a premium version and a free version of the Tivimate software available for use.
However, IPTV Wire recommends purchasing a premium account for a more enjoyable experience and better features.
The Tivimate premium option includes the following features not available in the free version:
- Favorites manager
- External video player support
- Multiple playlist support
- Customizable TV guide
- Channels sorting
- Automatically play channel reminder
Therefore, the free version doesn’t provide much without the premium upgrade.
We suggest first installing the free app using the guide below. If you like the app, you can register for the premium version, and we show you how to do that as well.
Since Tivimate isn’t available in the Amazon App Store, it must be side-loaded onto your Firestick/Fire TV device using Downloader.
For those using an Android device, you can install this app from the Google Play Store.

How to Setup Tivimate
Setting up Tivimate on your device is a simple process, as seen below.
In this example, we use an inexpensive IPTV service that provides an M3U URL.
NOTE: Make sure your VPN is turned OFF prior to integrating your IPTV service within Tivimate.
1. When launching Tivimate for the first time, select Add Playlist.
2. Click Enter URL.
3. Enter the provided M3U URL from your IPTV Service with your account info inserted.
You will usually have two M3U URLs. One is for the channel listings and one is for the EPG. We will insert the EPG M3U URL in a future step.
You will input your IPTV service username and password where the x’s are located.
IPTV Service M3U LINKS (example)
NOTE: The top link is your login and the bottom link is for the EPG.
Replace the “xxxx” with your IPTV service username and password.
You can also use the bit.ly option to shorten your M3U URL if you prefer.
You need to ensure that the address is typed into the box with no mistakes. One wrong character in the address and this will not work.
4. Once you have entered the URL, click Next.
5. Wait a minute or two for the channels to process.
6. You will then see a Playlist is processed message with the number of channels and your Playlist name. Click Next.
7. We will now insert the TV guide or EPG. Click Enter URL.
8. Enter the EPG URL or bit.ly link and click Next.
9. Click Done.
10. That’s it! The EPG will import, and you can now start watching the live channels.
After setting up Tivimate by integrating your preferred IPTV service, you will notice that many features are unavailable without the premium version.
You will get the screen below if you are trying to access these features on the free application.
