This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions to install IPTV on Roku. Using a Roku device, we must “sideload” IPTV on the Roku device. The instructions below will require the use of a computer in order to download the IPTV app file and add it to your Roku streaming device.
If you are using another IPTV player such as TiviMate, you can also watch IPTV on Roku by casting to your Roku device. IPTV Smarters is one of the best IPTV Players, compatible with hundreds of IPTV services that use a server URL.
Anyways, let’s get into how to install IPTV on Roku. I divided the instructions into four parts to make them easier to follow:
- Part 1: Enabling developer options on Roku
- Part 2: Adding the IPTV Smarters channel
- Part 3: Downloading the IPTV Smarters package on your computer
- Part 4: Installing IPTV Smarters on Roku
Don’t worry, the process is easier than it sounds. Let’s begin.

Steps to Watch IPTV on Roku Through Screen Mirroring
To stream IPTV on your Roku-connected TV using screen mirroring, you need to install IPTV Smarters or Smart IPTV (a different IPTV player) on your smartphone. Once you have one of these two players, you can use the cast or mirror option on your device.
With the cast/mirror option, you can access content on your Roku TV from any device on the same Wi-Fi network that’s using the IPTV player app.
