How To: Setting Up Live TV Streams on the Apple TV 4 (Updated)

How To: Setting Up Live TV Streams on the Apple TV 4 (Updated)

Imagine a television with a tuner that can pick up every live TV channel in the world. Well, we’re not quite there yet… but we’ve found a pretty cool start to it on the Apple TV where you can flip through live channels of your choice.

Updated: 24.05.2016: Thanks to Dam1234 from Whirlpool forums, we’ve got another Australian television update adding Network Nine’s 9Go!, 9Live and 9Gem channels, and Jordan who provided the FOX Footy and Channel 44 URLs.

While I do test these channels for over a week to make sure they work and remain stable, sometimes mistakes are made, so please don’t hesitate to let us know if you experience problems.

Finally, a huge thanks to Getflix for unblocking geographic restrictions on all the channels listed in this article.

The idea here is to use an Apple TV app where viewers can add links to live feeds of their choice, so only the channels they want will be listed in the line-up.

There is if course a few catches here, with the main one being that we don’t yet have access to every channel in the world – and not by a long shot. But we’ll be adding links to new channels as we find them. The other issue is that most broadcasters like to restrict their streams to their own specific country – However, this can be quickly remedied by setting up Smart DNS on your Apple TV, which is both easy to configure and cheaper than a cup of coffee.

There are a few such apps available on the Apple TV 4 which can handle this, but our current favourite is TVStreams from Tiago Martinho, which can be downloaded for free onto an iOS device here, and via the Apple TV store for tvOS access.

 


  • Australian Channel Links

    Listed below are a selection of channels that we have so far discovered, but there are certainly plenty more. We’ll be constantly adding to this list as we discover new ones, so bookmark this page!

    Note: Where I can add entirely free channels, I do so. However, sometimes I have not been able to find unencrypted streams from otherwise free-to-air networks, and in these cases I have had to add streams that require a subscription service. For instance, some of the Irish channels require an iBox.ie subscription that starts at a very reasonable €3 per month. (You can also use their ATV4 app under that subscription which includes catch-up content as well). This is because the streams available on RTE or TV3 are encrypted and often blacked out due to licensing deals.

  • How To Add Channels

    If you have another iOS device logged in to the same iCloud account as the ATV, adding channels to the TVStreams app on the Apple TV 4 couldn’t be easier.

    Step 1:

    On TVStreams’ iOS app, simply tap the “+” button.

    Step 1

     

    Step 2:

    Now, give the new channel a name, copy/paste the URL from the previous tab into the space provided, and tap Save.

    Step 2

     

    And that is effectively it. In a few seconds your new channel will transfer across to TVStream’s Apple TV app, and you can watch the live stream.

    TVStreams1

     

    If you don’t have access to an iPad or iPhone, then you will need to manually enter the details. On TVStreams’ Apple TV app, select the “+” button at the top/left of the screen and add the details in the provided fields as shown below.

  • One of the best things with this app is that you can bulk upload channels. There is no need to manually enter each and every channel into TVStreams.

    Step 1

    If you have Dropbox installed on your iPhone, simply visit this page on your iPhone and tap to download one of the following channel groups. Each of these channel groups will provide links to all the channels listed on the front tab of this review for that country: (If you don’t have Dropbox on your iPhone, download the links on a computer and email to your iPhone. You can add it to TVStreams directly from the email attachment much in the same way as shown below).

    Australian Channels

    UK Channels

    Irish Channels

    New Zealand Channels

    News Channels

    Favourite English Channels (My personal mix of UK, Irish, Australian and News channels)

    Italian Channels

    French Channels

    Greek Channels

     

    Step 2

    Once one of the channel groups is tapped, it will go to a dropbox page on your iPhone. Select the Share   button as shown below.

    Step1

     

    Step 3

    Select “Open In…” to open another list of options.

    Step3

     

    Step 4

    Select “Copy to TVStreams” and this will merge the new channels into the TVStreams list. If you had emailed the file to your iPhone, you would also have this option if you long-tapped on the attached m3u file within your email.

    Step4

  1. Jordan

    Anyway to figure out ABC’s Australia live streams? They’ve ABC1 and ABC News 24 available for live streams. Also, I’d like to add 7’s Adelaide live streams (my hometown).

    • Actually, I have ABC News 24’s live stream, but still testing it for a couple of days before publishing it here. As for ABC1, I’m looking working on that one.

      I have a couple more Australian channels as well, including some local community ones.

      • Jordan

        Great to hear! I tried working out how to get the m3u8 addresses, but got nowhere… So I’m happy to leave it to you!

        Great that we can now get all these streams on one device, and one app… Its the closest I’ve gotten to having it feel like natural “channel surfing”.

        • Struggling with stability on the ABC AU News channel, but I haven’t given up. In the meantime, I’ve added RTE Ireland’s 24 news channel.

    • Hi Jordan, I’ve added ABC News 24 (Australia) to the list, and this is supported by Getflix (don’t know about other Smart DNS providers yet). The video quality averages 800kbps and looks it. ABC unfortunately are not providing a better quality feed that I can find, so it is a bit pixelated. They are experimenting with higher quality streams on the PlayStation, but there is no live feed on that platform for me to pull from. But it is a start 🙂

  2. Tiago Martinho

    Hi Jo,

    Could you put the links in a file with the m3u extension?

    Like that is very easy to import the files into the app TV Streams, instead of manually import one link at the time.

    Best regards

    Tiago Martinho

    • Great idea Tiago. I’ll put this on my to-do list 🙂

    • David

      Hi been using this app (TV Streams) for about a week including last night. Had a heap of streams added so far (had more to do) but this morning I opened it up and said “warning! update the app to add channels”. But the app has disappeared from the App Store/s? Tried adding one stream via my iPad and it appeared on the ATV but just wondering what’s happened? Don’t want to add all the links again if I’m just going to open it tomorrow and they’re gone again.

      • Hi David, I see this as well. I’ve spoken to the developer and it seems there was a discrepancy on the timing for both the iOS and Apple TV updates. Hopefully the update will be available again soon, especially as I’m about to update this list today with the live channel 9 & 10 streams.

  3. Woji

    Hi Jo,

    Any chance to add some French channels please.

    Best regards

    Woji

    • Hi Woji, I’ll certainly look into it, but so far I’ve only found encrypted streams, even for the otherwise free-to-air channels.

    • Jo

      Hi Woji, testing some of these now. Looking good for France 2, 3 and 5, but still working on some of the others.
      Hmmm… it seems the official streams may be separating the audio from the video…

  4. An update for everyone following this. I’ve have m3u links for Channel Nine from Australia now that they have gone live today. I’ll be testing these and hope to have them up shortly.

    • Tim

      Following this post

      Please post the Nine AU streams

      • Hi Tim,
        They’re on their way 🙂

  5. Hi all, Could Channel 7 Perth live video feed be updated it is the same feed as Brisbane. Thanks

    • Thanks for the heads-up there. I’ve corrected it, and added some new links as well. I’m testing some higher quality feeds to see if they work fine in Europe.

  6. Mike

    Hi Jo, I do not know what I am doing wrong here. I cannot get any channels to propagate on Apple TV. Here is what I have done.

    Installed TV Streams onto Apple TV 4 – Logged into iCloud with Apple ID
    Installed TV Streams onto iPad – Logged into SAME iCloud account as above with Apple ID.
    Have put Australian and UK Playlists into my Dropbox Account.

    Followed instructions (I thought) by clicking on Australian .m3u file in Dropbox and sent to TV Streams, I even tried just using a single URL as opposed to a bulk file.

    Nothing shows up. If I use the TV Stream Add Playlist, it asks for a link, where do you get that link from. I very confused, so if you could help in anyway, it would be much appreciated.

    I must be just overlooking a crucial step obviously.

    Thanks
    Mike

  7. David

    BBC One link no longer seems to be working 🙁

    • David

      Never mind – that’ll teach me to comment without refreshing the page. Thanks Jo!

      • Phew… 😉 Yeah, just updated it. No worries though, let me know if it goes down again. About to add some Irish channels shortly. Still testing them, and if they still work after a week, up they go…

  8. Costas

    Congrtulations Jo’ for the great work.

    All UK links are working like a charm.

    As for the Australian channels, the only links that respond are
    – Channel Seven (HD Feed) https://sevenwestmedia01-i.akamaihd.net/hls/live/224838/MISC2/master.m3u8
    – all Channel Nine links
    which means no 7Flix, 7TWO, 7Mate or other regional Channel Seven links.

    Could you please fix them?

    • Hi Costas, no worries, I’ll check them tomorrow. Just out of interest, if you are outside of Australia, which Smart DNS service are you using to unblock the geo-restrictions, as not all may work with these feeds. I tested them through Getflix at the time of posting.

      • Costas

        Hello from Thessaloniki, Greece. I am using UnoTelly the last three years, which proved to be working pretty well on every channel/site/app I have tried to access. I have also tried to access the defected Aussie links via TuunelBear VPN, but to no avail.

        • Hi Costas, I can confirm that the Australian channels mentioned are working via Getflix. I suggest you contact UnoTelly and ask them to add support. I’m getting great streams here in Germany, which is not bad considering the distances travelled.

    • All 7,7flix,mate and 9 channels are streaming ok here in the UK

  9. Re UK channels:
    – it’s a pity Channel 4 (All 4) still doesn’t appear on Apple’s TV 4
    – Any particular reason you don’t list BBC Three TV? Yes, it’s an online-only channel nowadays but there’s some good stuff to be found there (such as the new Series “Thirteen”)
    AB

    • I think that’s you AncientBrit, sorry, it appears that there is a problem with user names appearing at the moment for people signed in. It affects me as well 🙁

      re: Channel 4 – I’m still hunting for stable live streams. I can’t seem to pull the URLs for the official live stream as they are using some method to hide them pretty well. I’ve been testing a whole pile of alternative feeds, but none of them have proved to be stable, i.e. the URL expires after a short period of time. Still looking though.

      re: BBC Three – this ain’t here because there are no live streams any more, none that I know of anyway. When I check on services like Zattoo, all it does it play a loop saying everything has gone online now.

  10. Derrick

    Bbc 1 not working. All the others are…..

    • Hi Derrick, thanks for the heads-up. I just checked it, and it is working at my end. Are you using a Smart DNS provider? If so, which one.

      Is anyone else having issues with the BBC One stream?

      • Derrick

        I’m using Getflix. Can you repost the link for bbc 1? The other links work (I.e. For Bbc news, itv etc)

        • Hi Derrick, I’ve updated the m3u playlist for the UK that includes the working BBC One channel. If you still have problems let me know (and if possible copy/past the offending m3u URL here so I can test it myself)

      • Hi everyone. All UK streams are working smoothly here in Greece with UnoTelly SmartDNS.

  11. Darren

    Anyone got a working Sky Sports m3u8?

    • You’ll need a valid subscription to Sky or Now TV even if you had an official m3u feed for Sky Sports to work. If you were hoping to get that for free, we don’t share pirated streams that circumvent a pay wall.

      That said, Now TV is Sky’s official IPTV service, and is reasonably good value for money if you watch a lot of sport.

  12. Thanks for putting all the links into files it made it so easy 🙂
    I found that Film4, Channel 4 and e4 did not work all the others did perhaps it’s due to my getflix settings? Although I would have thought that a few of the others might not work if I had those settings wrong

    • Hi Melmac, you’re quite correct. It seems the Wilmaa feeds are down. I’ll look into them, but this is rather disappointing as Channel 4 and 5 streams are really hard to come by.

    • Hi again,
      They should be working again for you, which is a good thing as I’m also testing the remaining channel from 4 (More4) plus Channel5, and I’ll be adding these links in the next update if they are also stable.

  13. Nick

    Tried some of the Italian channels, not working. Anyway ur doing a g8 job uploading the links.

    • Jo Chambers

      Hi Nick,

      Thanks! I just double-checked the Italian channels at my end and they are all working for me. This could be a geographic issue. Which smart DNS provider are you using, and if Getflix, which city’s DNS servers? I’m using Getflix with Frankfurt and London servers.

      • Nick

        I’m using unblock us for DNS and buffered vpn. I used server from Rome but to no avail. I have found some working links though at another site. Don’t know how long they will last. Cheers

        • Jo Chambers

          Hi Nick, I think this is where the problem could lie. The Italian streams (and some of the others) use Wilmaa as their source, and perhaps Unblock-US don’t support Wilmaa streams.

          I can see two options here. One, ask Unblock-US to add Wilmaa support, or switch to Getflix. To test it out, Getflix has a two week free trial, and they support all the live streams on this article.

          Of course, if you already have quite a bit of time before your current subscription runs to an end, this may not be the best option.

    • Hi everyone. All Italian streams are working smoothly here in Greece with UnoTelly SmartDNS.

  14. Ismael

    Hi Jo,

    Do you now any other Apple TV app that we can use in place of tvstreams?
    I just downloaded it but the app let me add only 5 channels. After that I can’t add no more 🙁

    Thanks.

    • Jo Chambers

      At the moment, TV Streams is the best I’ve tested, and makes it easy to bulk add channels. There is a full version which costs around £2.25 that allows unlimited channels and removes ads on the iOS app. Sure, it’s not free, but it costs less than a coffee and helps the developer who created it, along with helping him add new features in the future.

      There definitely are other apps out there though and some may be completely free. While I don’t really have the time to look at them at the moment, if anyone wants to recommend one, please don’t hesitate to mention it here 🙂

    • Nick

      I use tv streams from Australia n it costs $2.99. Well worth it m8, I have over 40 channels atm. Works well.

  15. Hello Jo’.
    France 2 link http://c001.p101.edgesuite.net/i/c001/france2_1@97347/master.m3u8 should be re-tested.
    Many thanks for your effort ! ! !

    • Jo Chambers

      Hi Costas,
      Just checked France 2, and it works via Getflix, both directly through your link and in the TV Streams app.

      This could be an issue with UnoTelly. Try getting their support to look into it.

  16. Ty

    Anyone find any links to Canadian channels? It would be awesome if someone could find a CBC stream!

    • Jo Chambers

      Definitely looking for these as well. Sadly, most live Canadian free-to-air channels sit behind a cable pay-wall, which sounds as crazy as it really is. But if we find any more streams, we’ll post them here.

      As for CBC, I can’t find a live stream from them yet, but still looking.

  17. John

    Just came across this and love it. I was wondering if similar streaming channels are available from US Tv streams?

    • Jo Chambers

      I haven’t come across the Gold Coast feed, but I’ll look into it Nick.

  20. Cant get the Tv Streams app to update on my apple tv, anyone got the same fault?

    • Jo Chambers

      I’ve had similar problems. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling it?

      • Yes i have reinstall the app and reset apple tv box but just keeps locking up may have to wait for a update.

  21. Billy Bongoman

    Anyone have the actual UK stream for Sky News rather than the international one?

    • Jo Chambers

      I’ll see if I can find it 🙂

  22. Billy Bongoman

    Thanks!

  23. Having all sorts of problems with tvstreams paid version. If I add a channel it does not appear in the list on my iPhone or in the apple tv BUT if I use the search function in the app on the iPhone it shows the channel there???? not sure how to fix I’ve tried deleting the iPhone app and reinstalling and it didn’t work

    • Jo Chambers

      Hi Melmac, are both your iPhone and Apple TV versions the same version? I also had problems a while ago that sounded very similar to yours, and when I updated the iPhone version, it all started working again.

      In any event, I recommend contacting the developer here: http://www.tvstreamsapp.com

    • Hi Melmac, are you using the same iCloud login on your apple tv and iPhone i had the same fault.

    Awesome update today!! Thanks for all the Channel 9 subchannels links, now I really feel like I’m back home! An expats dream 🙂

  25. Dave B

    I agree with Jordan, an awesome update. Still having a problem with the Australian Channel Seven links on my Sammy TVs as they just will not play for some reason, showing a “network error”. It is without a doubt related to the TVs themselves as the links work through other devices.

    Overall, we now have the best of all worlds. Well done and many thanks Jo

    • Hello from Thessaloniki, Greece.
      As soon as you find a solution to your problem (i.e. your Samsung TVs not playing Channel 7 links), please notify me, since I have the same problem with my Samsung TVs. I’m not sure if the problem stems from the TV or the app in use (i.e. Smart IPTV, SS IPTV, OTT player).
      Thanks in advance, Costas

    Have you found any issue with a number of the links no longer working such as the BBC, Channel 4, E4, 7mate Sydney links?

  27. Eddo

    Thank you all for the lists and your input.
    New to this.
    Got Apple TV 4, Getflix and TV Streams.
    Working a charm.
    You are all fantastic and this old man can now see some classics

  28. Jordan

    Ok, I subscribe to Getflix, and for the last few weeks, none of the Channel 9 streams (9, 9Life, 9Gem, 9Go) are working for me… The pinwheel turns, and then I just get a blank screen. Any ideas how to fix? So frustrating, I feel like I had it all, and now its gone!

    • Channel Nine links need updating.

  29. David

    Channel Nine & Footy not working form.e

  33. Thats great news Jo, we all miss the site updates

  34. Dave B

    Glad to hear all is OK Jo.

  35. Ken

    I wonder if you can help me. I have the TVstreams app and I can not get a single channel to display anything on an iPad or AppleTV4. I am in AustraliaI and don’t know if I need some sort of subscription but I haven’t been able to find information about this after extensive searching. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • Ken

      Just to clarify I’m only trying to add Australian channels at present.

    • Are you using the same iCloud login on your apple tv and iPad

      • Ken

        I am using the same iCloud login. The channels that I’ve added, copied from above, display in the channel list with not problem on all devices. When selected it looks like it shows a spinning wheel appearing like the channel is buffering, however it never does. I have waited up to 10 minutes with no results. I have read the TVStreams FAQ’s and didn’t find anything to help.

        • Hi Ken, Can you try this feed, it works fine my end. https://sevenwestmedia01-i.akamaihd.net/hls/live/224858/BRI6/master.m3u8 (Channel 7 Brisbane)

          • Ken

            Thanks so much, that works. I now have all seven channels, the main nine and ABC news 24. I’d really like regular ABC if possible. Anyone able to provide that?

        • Ken

          Are there any port forwarding rules I need to make? I do have NAT-PMP enabled.

  36. Did you have any luck using the above feed.

    • Ken

      Yes, I did. I hadn’t tried the commercial channels because I was really after the ABC. Do you have any knowledge of that link?

      • Ken

        Also, I have a VPN. When I set it the the UK the BBC ones listed above still don’t work. Any ideas there?

        • Just check the BBC feed working ok for me, have try to Delete and reinstall the app.
