How to watch digital TV on your phone
There are many applications for Android with which you can watch digital TV from various Internet providers. These applications can be installed on the set-top box and even on tablets and mobile phones.
I have selected two of the best applications for watching IPTV on Android. Both of them are free and allow you to add channel lists to .m3u both from a URL link and from local files.
Best apps to watch IPTV on Android:
- Simple IPTV
- LazyIptv Deluxe
How to watch digital TV in Simple IPTV
Install and run Simple IPTV.
The Simple IPTV application manages TV channel lists, but playback starts in an external player.
Open Simple IPTV settings.
Select the desired player to play.
If you do not have any of the listed streaming players installed, then install any of the following list:
- MX Player
To add a new channel list in .m3u format, click the “+” button
Choose one of the options:
- Open file – open a file on the device
- Add URL – open a list of channels on the Internet
For example, if you have previously downloaded TV channel lists, then select “Open file”. Find the .m3u files on your device and open them.
The first channel list has been added – to open it, tap on it.
If desired, you can add any number of TV channel lists.
To start watching IPTV, click on the channel list and select the channel you are interested in.

How to watch digital TV in LazyIptv Deluxe
LazyIptv Deluxe is an alternative to the previous program. If you are satisfied with the previous program, then you do not need to install both at once – you can skip this section.
However, LazyIptv Deluxe has some advantages that you may be interested in: the program is translated into various languages, the program has a built-in player, so you do not need to install a third-party streaming player, although you can use an external player instead of the built-in one.
Install and run LazyIptv Deluxe.
Click the PLAYLISTS button.
To add a new list of TV channels, press the “+” button
Enter playlist name (optional), enter its URL. If you want to open the list of TV channels located on the device itself, then press the button indicated by the arrow.
Specify the path to the .m3u file and open it.
To confirm your choice, press the button indicated by the arrow.
You can add any number of IPTV TV channel lists.
To watch digital TV, tap on the list of channels – a list of TV channels from this list will open.
Tap on the channel name to start playing.
You will be prompted to select a player to play the channel.
