What is an IPTV Box?
Before defining what an IPTV box is, it is important to know what IPTV means. IPTV is an acronym that means “Internet Protocol Television”. In simpler terms, this means television through the internet. Contrary to TV over cable, TV over the internet is far simpler and way cheaper.
An IPTV box is simply the device that makes IPTV possible. In Centennial and the rest of Canada, there are a lot of different IPTV boxes. In fact, more or less all the devices you plug into your HD or 4K TV can be somewhat considered an IPTV box as you can install apps and watch TV. But a dedicated IPTV box is way better as it can use all of its power to do one task, watch TV.
What are the benefits of using a dedicated IPTV Box in Centennial?
One device for all your content
The first incredible benefit of using a dedicated IPTV set-top box is that you only need one device to access all your favourite content like video streaming services or video on-demand content. Want to watch TV? Got it. Want to record a program? Your IPTV box has you covered. Want to access thousands of videos on demand? Done.
Thousands of channels and just one remote
In the past, when TVs and compatible devices were the norm, you had to have as many remote controls as you had devices (such as a cable box, VCR, and DVD player). This is fortunately over in the time of IPTV box. Nowadays, even with the thousands of channels available through IPTV, you just have one remote and you can even control your TV with it!
Freedom to watch what you want when you want
The beauty of a dedicated IPTV set-top box is the freedom you get along with it. Not only have you access to a wide range of channels over the internet, but you can watch whatever you want be it sports, movies, or videos on demand, whenever you want. There are no boundaries.
Turn your TV into a Smart TV
Not all HD TVs on the market are Smart TVs. However, all high-definition televisions have HDMI ports you can use to plug an IPTV box and therefore turn your regular HD TV into a Smart TV. Now using a single remote control, you can download apps, control your TV and watch thousands of channels!
Extremely easy to setup and use
Finally, an IPTV box is incredibly easy to setup and use. Whether you’re using the Amazon Fire TV Stick we recommend for BoomTV or another one, you simply need to plug it into one of your TV’s HDMI ports, connect it to your home Wi-Fi network, and voilà! You’re done and you can enjoy your channels!
Instead of having various devices and subscriptions, when you have an IPTV box, you only have a single device and an incredibly affordable one, to begin with. Starting at only $20 to $25, it’s easy to see why it is so popular.

What do you need to enjoy your IPTV subscription?
Being subscribed to an IPTV service alone is not enough; some additional components as well as good Wi-Fi are required for a flawless IPTV viewing experience. Here are the essentials of IPTV.
An IPTV box compatible with BoomTV.info
Using an IPTV means that you have to have a device able of turning IP protocols into information your television can use. It acts as a translator between BoomTV’s IPTV and your own television that allows you to watch your TV shows, movies, and TV channels among others. We recommend our customers get the Amazon Fire TV Stick as their IPTV box!
Strong and reliable internet speed
To watch video content smoothly, you need a robust internet connection of at least 25 Mbps (megabytes per second) download speeds. Without a reliable internet connection, your content (whether they are movies, programs, or live television) will be laggy, stuttering, and of low quality. Most people in Canada and North America have access to high-speed internet connections at home and can enjoy BoomTV’s IPTV services stress-free.
If you live in a region without a high-speed internet connection, we recommend sticking with the satellite connection until you get a robust enough internet connection. To check the current download/upload speeds from your current local internet service provider, you can look for and use tools like Speedtest.
All that is left is to download BoomTV on your IPTV box!
Installing IPTV Smarters only requires a few simple steps! Start enjoying thousands of channels on BoomTV.info through your Amazon Fire TV Stick in a few minutes: fast and reliable TV access for a high-definition or ultra-high-definition, uninterrupted experience.

IPTV Box – FAQ
Absolutely! You can watch cable TV and HD channels online without any issues using BoomTV. However, if you do not have a good internet connection, then you may experience problems viewing videos. BoomTV uses IPTV Smarters in order to provide its users with quality IPTV content on a secure internet connection. Benefit from a wide range of online activity with IPTV Smarters directly on your Amazon Fire TV Stick or Android device.
BoomTV’s independent IPTV services work simply through any device you already own, such as your Amazon Fire TV Stick, Android TV box, Android TV, tablet, smartphone, Kodi, PlayStation, Xbox, or computer (laptop or desktop). If you need to buy an IPTV box, we recommend the Amazon Fire Stick as IPTV apps perform really well on it!
At first glance, the two seem redundant. But, there is a slight advantage to using an IPTV box, even if you already own a Smart TV: speed. You might have noticed that navigation is quite slow and cumbersome on a Smart TV. This is because a Smart TV, whether it is an Android TV or WebOS TV, is a TV first and Smart second. Therefore, it doesn’t have the processing power that IPTV boxes have. Not only will you have a better user experience on an IPTV box, but you will have access to thousands of channels and other apps not available on a Smart TV. And it’s also so small that you don’t see it. Finally, with some IPTV boxes, you can command all your devices (like video game consoles, sound amps, and more) with it and just one remote!
