    Just bought a fire stick as advised on here, and initially installed kodi beast build with sky q skin. Couldnt get any of the TV to work, and no epg listings showing. Did a bit of research and concluded that it was too full of unwanted stuff for my requirements so put a basic kodi installation with a sky hd skin from mrknowitall. Unfortunately the epg is still empty and can't get any tv. Don't know if I'm doing something wrong or missing some step or other so I'd be grateful for any advice, please?

    One of the major EPG sources is currently in the middle of a weekly update which is why your EPG information may be empty. Do you have a trial or sub from an IPTV provider, if so have you contracted them to check the status of their service?

    No I don't have a sub.I have managed to get the epg to display the programmes now, but not all play. That is the next challenge!!!

    I would recommend iview hd for a iptv source vix . You can add the app onto the firestick from your phone and away you go . MOSTLY ALL HD

    First thing to do is check that your isp restrictions are switched off on your router, especially if your with BT!!

    Hi Stephen how far away is your router from stick? Some properties have poor wifi areas maybe need wifi extenders if using upstairas
