I have a Samsung 2020 smart TV.
I'm using an App called NetIptv to watch IPTV or im trying to.
If I use TalkTalk as my Internet provider I cant get any channels via the app.
I have been through this issue with Samsung, who suggested try connecting thru your mobile hotspot to your EE Internet provider and everything works perfect.
So the issue has to be related to Talk Talk..
I have spent a couple of hours on the phone with their Tech guys, who have no grasp of the English language and what I am telling them. One guy who was great suggested port forwarding and I need to find the port forwarding details for my TV. Then he said I cant be anymore of a service to you. Thanks for you call.
I looked in to this and apparently the TV sets this automatically.
I have the same issue on my PC using TalkTalk also, but I just connect to the Internet via a VPN and everything works great. I dont know if that will help to narrow down the problem.
Has anyone had the same problem and possibly point me in the right direction..

OK thanks. I'm not really sure what else to suggest, this isn't something that we specifically support, is there no other app that you could try that performs a similar function?

I can't see anything to indicate that we block this. Could you explain exactly how far you get before the app appears to be blocked
Has this ever worked on your TalkTalk connection? When did you first try it?

It works with EE perfectly and on my gf's when she connect my TV via a hotspot on her phone using o2. I have a VPN but I don't know how to set it up on the smart tv, there is no app for it.

There is a court order in place to block iptv services because they stream illegal content. Talk Talk are forced to enforce the block together with the rest of the "big six isps". Your iptv provider will be blocked 30 mins before, during and 30 mins after Premier League matches. So on a weekend, pretty much blocked. This means that their servers will be invisible to you and you will not be able to log in. The solution is to either leave the big six isps or subscribe to a vpn if you believe your iptv service to be legitimate.

I don't have a smart tv but if you can then try just the TV first then on the router as well...Anything like Google, OpenDNS, Cloudfare will do. It may make no difference but if TT are blocking it as part of a group policy (ISP's have a legal obligation when it comes to streaming sites) then it might bypass that. You can always change it back after if it makes no difference.
The other thing you might try is to switch Homesafe on again, wait a few minutes for everything to update and then turn it off again.
EDIT: sorry should have said Google "Google DNS" "OpenDNS" or "CloudfareDNS" to get the addresses. I'm guessing there'll be a setting on the TV network settings that says obtain DNS automatically or enter manually and you need to enter manually. Same on the router.

I'm sorry to hear this. Just to confirm, have you also tried powering down the router for a full 30 minutes and then retested again as this will reset the current session?
