Among all the IPTV shiny toys, Tivimate is one which not only reliable when it comes to stable streaming. Although installation on android devices is pretty much straight forward, Firestick and Fire TV need a little bit more steps to be taken.
Android users who have Google playstore on their device can easily search for Tivimate app and install it. So do that and skip this part of the tutorial.
Users who have Firestick, Fire TV or type of Generic Android devices should use the side-loading method for which we already have a tutorial, but let's see into these steps.
1-First of all, since the app is being installed using a 3rd-party APK, follow this tutorial to enable "Installation of apps from unknown sources".
2-Then, read this tutorial on how to install an app using an external apk through Downloader. The APK file for Tivimate latest stable version is provided there as well.
The feature through which we are going to use in this tutorial to import IPTV playlist is Xtream Codes API. To have this , Premium features must be unlocked.
Now paying for the license of the app depends on the device:
1-If you are on android device which has Google Playstore, you can pay for the license directly through the app.
2-If your device dont have access to playstore, like a Firestick, the purchase process should be done through an app called TiviMate Companion.
Read this tutorial on How to purchase the paid license and unlock premium features of TiviMate IPTV Player.
Once the paid license of the app is purchased and activated, proceed with the following steps:
1-When you open the app for the first time, this is the page that shows up, the app asking for playlist upload. Click on Add Playlist.
2-The best and easiest way to import IPTV playlist onto TiviMate would be Xtream Codes Login method.

Say our M3U provided by our IPTV Provider is the following: (this is hypothetical M3U address and you should use the one you have received from your IPTV Provider)
Then it should be added to the app Xtream Codes Login in the following format:
Server Address: http://provideraddress.com:80/
It a lot easier than entering the whole M3U url into the app.
4-Once all the details are put in, tick Include VOD so Movies and series get listed as well and then click Next.
