How to get IPTV Channels in Cairo?
I am a fan of FC Barcelona and I really enjoy watching sport channels.
At the moment I am in Cairo (القاهرة). I have a satellite dish in my apartment, and receive only free satellite channels. However, I do not want any channel… I want my pay TV channels!
Could An IPTV Box Bring Me My Pay TV Channels?
You are not the only person in the world who has not heard about MAG254. I will make an article that introduces the MAG IPTV receiver for your references, so please do not worry!
I have spent time to do my own researches to get an understanding about how the MAG IPTV box works. Luckily I found the solution-the IPTV box after following the discussions on many forums, especially Reddit and IPTV Talk.
What IPTV Box To Buy?
I at first thought MAG250 or MAG254 could be found in electronics stores so I visited Dandy Mega Mall in Giza (الجيزة) and Genena Mall in Nasr City (مدينة نصر), but I was wrong. What you find in electronics stores is other brands like Roku and Avov.
Finally I ordered my MAG IPTV receiver from http://egypt.souq.com.
Why Did Nobody Tell Me That I Need A Service Provider?
I did not know that a service provider is as important as the IPTV box itself, and nobody told me that. I then discovered it by myself, and received my own IPTV box.
After I unboxed my IPTV box and connected it to my TV, there were no channels. I was very disappointed, and then I started reading and doing researches on the internet. That is where I came across IPTV private server. IPTV private server is the service provider that provides you with the M3U8 channel list (قائمة القنوات).
Finally I received my MAG254 IPTV box.
IPTV Private Servers Are A Big Jungle!
It is not easy to find a GOOD IPTV private server. I will tell you more about my experience in another article because I want to keep this article short.
I recommend you order your monthly subscription/donation from nobody else than TVLuux.com because they are the best service provider that I have ever known.
By the way, why is it called a donation? Could someone explain for me why it is called to order a donation? I admit it is very confusing for a beginner like me and you (well, if you were not a beginner then you would not be reading my article).
I made a mistake (that was before I was introduced to TVLuux in Reddit). I ordered an IKS and not IPTV.
IKS (or Internet key sharing) is a way to share satellite TV card keys that usually used with a satellite receiver and a dish. What you need is a satellite dish pointed toward Dish networks.
The number of TV channels available in IPTV is more than in IKS. Additionallu, in IPTV you access to VOD. VOD is a library of movies in high quality.
Finally My Premium Channels Are Working
I had to take several days to understand how to setup the MAG box, and the configuration was not as easy as I thought. I am so glad that it is working great finally.
I would like to express my special thanks to TVLuux for the great customer support I got. They helped me a lot with the configuration of my MAG box with internet.
Thank you TVLuux!
