What is the Best IPTV Subscription for 2018 and Why?

By | January 23, 2018

​With these new TV platforms it's not all about the number of channels. The best IPTV subscription should be judged on several factors but stability is one of the most important. You should also consider the Customer Service and Support. I believe I have found the best for 2018.​

IPTV​ (internet protocol television) is fairly new technology but it is fast-becoming a very popular way to deliver TV channels to subscribers Worldwide.

There are many IPTV providers to choose from including ACE IPTV, Rocket Streams, NTV, SoftIPTV, to name a few. But we have teamed up with a relatively new hosting company and their service is proving to be very popular.

My old supplier was NTV and for a while their service was very good. However, they started having problems with their credit card merchant and a lot of customers started to leave.

This forced me to look at alternatives and I tried several different IPTV providers before I found one that could replace NTV with the same quality. I was pleasantly surprised to discover it was overall a better product and cheaper too.

Consequently I have now joined forces with them to bring you a quality TV platform that can easily replace any cable TV subscription. We also offer 2 day trials.

Best TV Choice


​It's all about choice and giving the customer what they want. This IPTV platform has everything and more. You can also get access to a low internet section which is great for users who may be restricted by their internet speeds at home.

This section includes live sports channels and other popular channels like BBC​, ITV, etc. It means you will have a more stable​ broadcast which uses lower bandwith.

This means you won't be subject to continual freezing and can enjoy the live broadcast. This is especially important if you are watching live sports.

There is a also Subtitles section with access to popular channels with subtitles like BBC1, BBC2,  ITV1, ITV2, BBC News and Sky News, etc.

Biggest and Best Video-on-demand

​Imagine having full access to 72,000 titles to choose from, ready to watch whenever you want? You can select from Movies, TV Shows, Boxsets, Documentaries, the list goes on and on.

This on-demand library is constantly updated on a daily basis. New episodes are added when they come online. You will never be stuck for watching your favourite TV shows.

This VOD content really impressed me and was one of the deciding factors for signing up with my host. Plus, they don't have 1000's of meaningless channels like some other IPTV providers.

Watching live TV with an IPTV subscription like this is far better than using some of the free apps like Kodi or Mobdro. With these apps you have to use a VPN to bypass restrictions. That's not the case with this TV platform.

IPTV Catch Up

​The 14 day catch up​ is available on most of the channels. The popular ones are definitely covered. The catch up service is only available on the MAG box or Smart TV App.

This is a great feature if you are in a timezone that doesn't suit live sports. For example, I am in South East Asia so the time difference means that I miss certain sporting events that are on too late.

The catch up means I can watch it the next day or whenever I want in a 14 day period. This feature is not available on Android or iOS devices.

Mag 250/254/256 Boxes


These boxes are designed for delivering TV over the internet. They can be purchased online from various stores but Amazon have a good selection.

Be aware that some of the earlier models may not have built-in wireless so if you are planning to use your WiFi then you would have to use a wireless dongle and attach it to the USB port.

Otherwise, just purchase one with built-in wireless. These boxes are usually suffixed with a w1 or w2 like this - MAG256w1.
