FAQ'S (Frequently Asked Questions)
What is IPTV?
Also called Internet TV or OTT (Over the Top) streaming television. Internet Protocol Television – IPTV describes a system where a digital television service is delivered to subscribing consumers using the Internet Protocol over a broadband connection.
What kind of bandwidth do I need from my Internet Service Provider?
For the best experience an internet connection of at least 10MBPS (Megabits per second) is needed. We suggest a 20MBPS connection if possible to stream multiple devices. Please check your connection speed at www.speedtest.net
Why buy from a reseller like Nuevo Dynamics?

What kind of streaming devices can I use to watch IPTV on?
You can watch IPTV on popular devices like Apple TV, Amazon's Fire Stick, MAG 250 series of Set Top Boxes, etc. We recommend any Android box with 2GB of RAM.
Can I stream on more than one device with my subscription?
Yes but not at the same time. If you are streaming on two devices at the same time then you will need to purchase another subscription.
What is Kodi and do you support Kodi Addons?
Kodi is a free and open-source media player software application developed by the XBMC Foundation, a non-profit technology consortium. Eventhough, Kodi may be pre-installed with various add-ons, Nuevo Dynamics does not support Kodi add-ons. If you are interested in learning about installing Kodi add-ons, feel free to search in Google or YouTube as there are many videos that can help you configure Kodi.
Is IPTV Legal?
Streaming is actually a lot more common than you might think. There are many video and audio streaming websites that are perfectly legal. Some notable examples include Youtube, Vimeo, Spotify, Netflix, Twitch, and many more. Those examples may seem obvious but the methods they use to stream are extremely similar to those that are used in services such as 1channel, Popcornflix, Projectfreetv, and obviously many others. So what makes one legal and the other one not? Both type of websites are "technically legal" and the entire situation sits in a grey area. There are some websites that are flat out illegal but those don't last long. Before you dive into the answer you first need to know how it works.
Streaming works by saving parts of the video using a "cache" which allows the video to play continuously. A good analogy for this is how Youtube buffers its videos. You can see which part of the video is loaded and which part isn't. The filled in area has been put into the cache while the dark area is the rest of the video. As you play the stream, it continues to load the remainder of the video despite you watching what is already in your cache. Your cache gets recycled as you go so only parts of the video are saved at a given time.
The way this works is very important as you are never actually downloading the entire video at a given time. This way you are only viewing the content somebody else is hosting! However, when hosting content the provider always need the rights to show it. Otherwise they might get contacted with a DMCA notice (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) or other similar acts if outside of the United States. The reason it is legal (or at least very safe) for the end user is because they never actually end up downloading anything. In most cases it is completely legal to stream content since you cannot be held liable for the copyrighted material.
