The description of Ace Stream LiveTV App
* This application does not contain TV channels or video sources!
** This application is designed for STB devices (set-top boxes) with remote control and will not work on smartphones or tablets.
Watch TV channels and various live broadcasts by adding into application playlists and broadcast sources from your content providers (OTT/IPTV etc).
This application uses P2P technology which provides better broadcast quality.
When standard playlists with TV channels (HLS) are added from any OTT/IPTV services, P2P support will be automatically enabled. You will receive a stream not only from your broadcaster's servers but also from other viewers. Thanks to this function, you can enjoy watching TV channels of any standard OTT/IPTV service with a much higher level of quality (stability) of broadcasts comparing to watching the same playlists or TV channels in any other application. At the same time, none of your personal identifiers/keys/links issued to you by the OTT operator are transferred to the P2P network. In addition, the use of this application will significantly reduce the load on the server infrastructure of your TV provider, thereby improving the performance of its service as a whole.
- Convenient user interface created specifically for the TV screen
- Ability to add an unlimited number of playlists and other content sources
- Synchronization of playlists between user’s devices and applications (for example, you can add playlists and various broadcast sources available to you in your Ace Stream for Windows application and during synchronization, they will be displayed in your application)
- Search for broadcasts in EPG, in playlists, and in content sources
- TV guide screen
- Adaptive sorting and filtering by categories

When you add several playlists with identical TV channels by name, the channels will not be duplicated in EPG, and you can choose the best broadcast source in the player menu
- Automatic search for a working source (available only to users of “Standard”, “Premium”, “Smart for Android” tariff plans)
If there are several sources of the TV channel, you can use the auto search mode to find and launch a working source.
If all the sources added by you are not working, the system will automatically search for an available working source on the Web.
* Storage: needed to hold a cache of various app files
