After reading a couple of threads in this Samsung Smart TV forum I realise now that there are more options that what Samsung has too offer in their poor excuse of an App Store.

However while learning about IPTV and more so how I can better integrate it into my daily life and the lives of my friends and family to save money but have all the juice. I stumbled across the SmartSTB application (Firstly on a Toshiba device hidden inside an appstore within their appstore.) on the Samsung Smart TV.

Recently finding out this is the software which makes MAG devices so successful due too the easy use nature of the setup I was intrigued in a way which made me think that this may be a great option for family and friends of mine who have similar Smart TV functionality but lack the general know-how of driving other technology such as a FireTV which is affordable. Some key members of my famiy struggle to change the source input on their TV never mind drive a FireTV/IPTV app.

Upon further investigation I soon realised that the SmartSTB is simply an emulates version of the software found on MAG devices and that there are a tonne of different STB emulation projects across many platforms.

However the 'SmartSTB' application for SmartTV's is a paid service unlike many other platforms STB emulation software. They do offer a 7-day trial which I did try along side a 24hr IPTV Line from my Provider and it worked great, not an issue I could see with my noob-eye. However they offer a pricing plan which is a bit questionable to me as they charge in the region of £28 for a 'Lifetime' licence and have other plans which are charged monthly which seems absurd.

I wandered due to reading posts by the likes of @redhat who had been in contact with the developers of SmartIPTV and written about being able to simple install the application from USB Flash Drive - can this be done with SmartSTB?

Of course the answer is yes - if you have the package for the app to put onto the USB, but are there ways of ripping the software off the SmartTV/Appstore and if-so... are we able to edit it in a way to work arround the licencing?

Thanks for taking the time to read and if you have an input on the topic, please feel free to reapond!

Appreciated!

Its a really solid app for users of lesser known model of TV my personal preference for Samsung is nanomid while the lifetime licence is cheaper and a better picture quality than smart STB this is my go to for Samsung tvs from 2014 onwards! If smart STB is available on other TV models its always a good go to rather that SIPTV
