List of Best IPTV Apps for Samsung Smart TV:
The list contains all the currently available apps on the pre-loaded Tizen supported App store on all Samsung smart TV models which have updated software version installed.
1- Smart IPTV (siptv):
The first app I am going to discuss here is the Smart IPTV or Siptv app which is available on the Tizen app store and can be easily downloaded on any Samsung smart tv. This apps helps you play your OTT (Over the top content) streaming or the actual IPTV streams on your Samsung smart TV. The application itself doesn’t have any channels loaded on it. So you have to add your own M3u list manually.
The App supports all Samsung smart TV from F/H/J/K/M/Q series TVs. I had a 40inch Full HD J5200 series smart TV previously and have used this app on it. It was a bit slow while loading and despite having a good internet connection It buffers most of the time. Later I updated to K7000 series 4K UHD tv and this app suddenly works like lightning fast.
The current version of the smart IPTV app is 3.0.62 and its updated on 12 July 2107. Here is the change log.
- Added external logos support (tvg-logo attribute in M3U playlist)
- Added channel name scrolling in primary channel screen
- Added play/pause icon for mouse/pointer use (click and hold for stream restart)
- Fixed “Check playlist URL” problem of previous version
- Various bugs fixed.
2- SS IPTV app:
This is my 2nd best IPTV app installed on my Samsung smart TV. This app is Free multi-purpose player for playing video in local network or through internet. The app is integrated with services of hundreds of IPTV-operators. User’s own playlists are also supported. You can checkout more info about SS-IPTV app on their official page.

As Mention before, The Samsung Tizen OS platform is relatively new and we are not seeing any compatible 3rd party IPTV apps for more faster and reliable performance as seen on Android TV. But developers at Samsung are hopeful that they will receive more new apps for their Smart tv platform. If you know any new app let us know by commenting below this post.
