Dubai, the greatest city on Earth, has many expats working there. Most of the expats are staying in the magnificent Dubai Marina. Last week a received a request about writing how to watch English TV channels in Dubai. This request came from an expat that misses his English channels.

How To Get Expat TV Channels In Dubai

This is the magnificent Dubai Marina.

I began searching the web for how Dubai expats at watching their channels, and found that some of them are using IPTV boxes like MAG 256/257 and Avov.

I decided to write this article to hopefully be a guideline for other expats working in Dubai. I this article, I will try to answer these questions

  • What IPTV box is better, Avov or MAG box?
  • Does Kodi work on either of the IPTV boxes?
  • What IPTV service provider do i recommend?

MAG 254/255

MAG254 IPTV box

This is the MAG254 IPTV box

MAG 254/255 are IPTV receivers from Infomir. They do IPTV well, except they are difficult to setup. It took me around 1 week until I knew how to make it play my TV channels.

My first experience was that this box was only for IPTV geeks because there was inner portal and outer portal. And finding the setup page was not easy. The menu is messy. But once they start working, then they work good.

This Amazon client reviewer also believes that MAG box is hard to configure.

I am not the only one who believes that MAG box is hard to configure.

Where to buy MAG254? There are many that sell MAG254 in Dubai, for example

Things to keep in mind before you buy an MAG TV box

  • The box does not come with a channel list. You have to buy an IPTV providing service from
  • The box is not Wi-Fi enabled and you need a Wi-Fi dongle.

Avov Box

This is the Avov box

The Avov is also Android box that emulates the MAG254, and the Avov TVOnline App is the result.

Avov TVOnline App

In Avov TVOnline app you can connect to 10 IPTV private servers.

I found that Avov receiver is quicker in response then the MAG254/255, and the boot time is minimal.

It has also multiple versions of Kodi.

Does Kodi Work On MAG And Avov?

I was supprised when I found that Kodi application is not pre-installed in my MAG254. In one of the Arabic IPTV forums I read that MAG IPTV box is a Linux box and not Android box. This is why I could not run Kodi on MAG254.

I contacted some dealer in and asked them if it is possible to run Kodi on Avov. I was happy when I received a reply the same day that informed me it is not possible to run Kodi on MAG IPTV box.

According to Avov official website, it is possible to run Kodi on Avov. The Avov has multiple versions on Kodi.

What About Other TV Operators In Dubai?

In Dubai you will find only two TV channel providers

To be honest, there isn’t a huge deal of difference between Etisalat and Du, but both of them does not offer the UK/USA channels. They offer more Arabic TV channels like OSN and myHD.

If it’s an three-in-one (cable TV, Internet, and phone) package you want, then both Etisalat and Du are ready and willing to meet your needs.

There are only two cable TV operators in Dubai - Etisalat and Du.

What IPTV Service Provider Is recommended?

TVLuux is the top service provider.

TVLuux is the top service provider.

Your TV box without an subscription from an IPTV service provider is useless. There are not channel list that comes with the box.

There are many IPTV service providers that provides you with an M3U list. This is an playlist of channels that your TV box displays. I will soon publish reviews about the 3 top service providers. The top service provider is of course TVLuux (

What Is My Recommendation – Avov Or MAG?

Both IPTV boxes are good in their own right and specifications may lean one way or another, but in the stretch… the choice between is yours. Also, get an IPTV service subscription in order to have channels to watch.

I prefer of course the MAG IPTV box.

    I’ve got a question regarding Tvluux. Can you recommend me the best subscription service that I can watch both Arabic and Turkish channels?

    • Amadi

      hi Asli.
      All of 4 subscription packages ($15/month, $35/3 months, $50/6months, and $80/12 months) that TVLuux is offering consists of Arabic and Turkish channels. So which package that you decide to choose depends on your budget. However, to the best of my experience, 6 month subscription package is the most popular IPTV subscription service at the best price.

    TVLuux is by far the best service provider for MAG 250 devices, in my opinion. They got lot of channels: UK/American/French/German/Dutch/Arabic channels. Lots of HD channels… Reply very quick on email. It’s the best choice for expats.

      Just download stalker or Kodi for mobile phones and you also need an IPTV server service. One of the best ones I have tried is It works good and without buffering or freezing.
