According to reports, one of the biggest IPTV service suppliers has been shut down.

The IPTV service supplier is based in the UK and was closed down “due to legal reasons”.

Details of this are not readily available, but although we do know a name of the provider, until we have more facts about the situation we will not be publishing it.

This IPTV service supplier provided IPTV streams for resellers. This means that many of their clients will no longer have access to the IPTV streams.

A number of customers using this IPTV service, are based in Spain, and used its service for UK and Scandinavian channels.

This could be a good reason not to use an IPTV service based in the UK, for UK TV IPTV content. Once identifier that your IPTV service provider is based in the UK is when you pay in “Pounds Sterling” or where your provider says the price you pay may change as “we pay in pounds so it may vary a little”.
