An IPTV service with VPN included would be ideal as it will waive the VPN costs for the IPTV user. So if your IPTV provider offers VPN for their service as a bundle, great! and if not, you should find the best VPN for IPTV service to secure yourself. IPTV Smarters Pro allows users to import their desired VPN service into the application. How to add VPN to IPTV Smarters Pro? follow along with this tutorial.
If you have your own VPN subscription from any of those big name providers, you can simply log into your VPN subscription client portal, look for download section and obtain the OpenVPN certificate files for your desired server location.
IPTV Smarters Pro is compatible with OpenVPN protocol. Therefore, you need to download files which have .ovpn at the end of their name meaning it's an OpenVPN certificate file. Once you have the file, proceed with following steps.

4-There are two ways to import OpenVPN certificate files into IPTV Smarters Pro:
--URL: in this method, your VPN provider, or the IPTV provider who offers VPN alongside their streaming service, uploads the cert file on a server and provides you with a short link. The cert file(s) better to be inside a ZIP file (compressed) . As I checked, cert files inside a ZIP file are read better. The app will uncompress and extract the file itself. Once the url to that file is typed in, click Import.
5-The other method is FILE:
--File: You can download the cert file on your device, however you like to do it, and then click Browse to provide the app with the address where the cert file is downloaded (Usually in download folder of your android machine) and then click Import.
