My Phoenix has somehow disappeared

When I say disappeared, the main title Phoenix is there but the sub title Phoenix under it has gone

Has anybody else seen this?

It's my main repo for watching streams, so I'm a bit gutted

Re: Kodi XBMC
Joe C - I have an IPTV service I've been using for a year which isn't bad.

Always interested in reliable alternative as I like a back up.

Would you mind WHOImailing me the name of the service please.

Did the same joe.
Flashed a tplink archer router with ddwrt and added ipvanish

Re: Kodi XBMC
Do you just not bother with IPTV?

Re: Kodi XBMC
Johnson - Haven’t needed to for about a year now, but I used the one I get with smartdnsproxy.com when I did. Flashed an old router with Tomato so I didn’t have to piss about - set that up as a dedicated VPN router and connected my TV to that when needed

Re: Kodi XBMC
Do you use VPN, Joe?

Re: Kodi XBMC
Cheers Joe, I’ve still got him on FB, will give him a try.

In my opinion Amazon Fire TV 2nd Gen boxes are the best (and actually run slicker than my Nvidia Shield).

Can only get them 2nd hand in EBay now though for 60 to 80 quid.

"Allegedly" IPTV Smarters + PIA VPN + Fire TV 2nd Gen is a great combo, with Tea TV for TV and Movies

I’ve got an Nvidia Shield, I use it for UHD rips - but what I said below is better for football

Re: Kodi XBMC
No, just get an Nvidia Shield. Seriously. If needed wait for when it's on an Amazon black friday or whatever day for it.

Just do it. Seriously.

Re: Kodi XBMC
Johnson - If you’ve got an LG TV (or a newer Apple TV), download IPTV Smarters app and then get in touch with the bloke you pointed me to for NBC subscriptions for their IPTV one.

Been using it for three years now, has the odd blip, but mostly fine

Johnson 8:14 Fri Jul 19
Re: Kodi XBMC
What’s the next level down from a Shield?

I’ll only use it for the 3pm games and games not on Sky or BT as I’ll keep my Virgin running anyway.

Re: Kodi XBMC
Oh and get an Nvidia Shield box, spendy but you won't regret it

Re: Kodi XBMC
Johnson, you can't beat SS new one called TIW, has a built in VPN, and I use XCIPTV as my front end

Johnson 4:12 Fri Jul 19
Re: Kodi XBMC
What's the best IPTV and VPN combo about at the moment or is it worth waiting till the season starts.

I could probably do with a new box too as my AFTV is 1st Gen so probably bit past it now and my TV is an old LG too.

Re: Kodi XBMC
As an example, pirated music is much less a thing now since Spotify and other streaming platforms are relatively low cost for high volume content.

Media companies need to go 'long tail revenue' (lots of people each paying a small amount) rather than far less people all paying more.

By doing so they'd reach more eyeballs, be able to charge more for their advertising and make up what they lose per subscription in having more subscriptions.

Re: Kodi XBMC
Whilst the matches are made available outside the UK to online platforms, it will be next to impossible to shut them down conclusively I'd have thought, since a VPN will always disguise the nature of the traffic and the source, and someone looking to take advantage will always find a way.

If you look at the history of 'pirate TV':

- Originally you had de-coders that plugged in to the sat boxes/cable boxes and descrambled the signal
- Then came card sharing boxes where the descrambling was centralised and the clear signal then distributed
- Now there is IPTV & VPN

Where there is a market, there will be a way. That's the nature of the beast.

It will only stop when all games are made available to all markets at a cost which does not form a sizeable barrier of entry to the market (e.g. All West Ham games available PPV for £5.00 per game, or some such).

All in my opinion of course.
