Data? too an open ended question to answer as a few variables. Resolution, time, encoding all factors.
Fair enough - but can't say I agree with you - as this ignores the facts about subscription-free IPTV services, is they are not monitored and as such often are overused and unstable.
If you had my job - previously when offering support for this Kodi nonsense for 4 years and the applications which fall over, you would share my views. Try dealing with an average of 50 people a day complaining that their TV is not working, because of some overshared stream which everyone is linking to, which you and your company have nothing to do with. Huge waste of time and resources for us and also watching clients getting frustrated, so would I recommend, no. Based on hundreds, probably thousands of communications over 4-5 years since IPTV really started to hit the mainstream for most.
Usually, you find these things may work for a time but will trip up. I'm sure I saw another thread on this forum earlier today with someone with a Kodi app problem that Freddo answered - i'll happily leave it to him
What really upsets people (what would I know 5000 customers internationally and an 11-year-old telecommunications company
) is when they really, really want to watch something, that unfortunately is on a free IPTV service, quite often the servers get overloaded - so you can be in a situation of trying to watch a game 10,000 max server capacity, 100,000 Kodi users trying to jump on - problems, no TV. I have yet to see this not happen at some point. People recommend as is cheap, but cheap is cheap for a reason. Y
I would also state 99% of people I have dealt with who has used Kodi/Hacked Amazon stick with apps and then used/switched to a good hosted type service has commented on how different & better things are. Not only services but integration and usage.
What does happen, is that people will try the cheapest option (human nature), realise the weaknesses after a while and move on. Not just with TV, with everything
