SO Player IPTV

Hey there, do you want to watch sitcoms that defined post-modern America? You can watch All in the family if you do. It aired in the 1990s and 2000s. Well, you’re out of luck because you can only access it on YouTube, and even then, for a sharp fee. Or are you? Yes, you can watch All in the family and other shows that went off of primetime years ago. Internet Protocal televisons make that possible. What’s even better is that you’ll pay peanuts to do so!


There’s a catch, you can’t watch things solo. You have to use IPTV players to do so. I’m going to tell you about So Player IPTV. It’s a popular IPTV player that comes in app form. SO Player is compatible with many digital devices, including Firestick TV!

Some Things You Should Know About So Player IPTV

These may be offered at dirt-cheap prices, but since there’s ‘no such thing as a free lunch in life,” there’s a reason for that. All IPTV services have been linked to organized crime syndicates. So, your personal and confidential information is up for grabs. That includes your social security number and credit card numbers, among other things.

Another thing you should know is that all have been known to stream content that may be copyrighted, banned, or even illegal in your country. The reason is that IPTV networks don’t obtain the permissions necessary to stream the content that they air. It’s the reason why they can offer you their plans at unbelievably low prices.

You could end up getting a visit from the authorities in your country if you stream IPTV content. However, there is a way to protect yourself. Always use a VPN. VPN is an acronym for Virtual Private Network. VPNs hide where you are and what you do when you are online. So, you are invisible to anyone else who may be online with you.

It’s easy to find VPNs. Just Google them. While there are many free VPNs out there, paid plans offer much more protection and are much more reliable. Paid plans are relatively inexpensive and offer many more benefits when you are online.

So Player IPTV Features

People love the Player app because of its many features. These give users many options and freedoms that were previously thought imaginable. Indeed, you’ll never view TV the same way once you’ve streamed TV content using the player app.

  • You can store and watch many playlists at once
  • It’s easy to learn and use the User Interface – a two-year-old who can’t even read could easily learn how to use it.
  • You can use an Electronic Programming Guide (EPG) to watch content
  • You decide where and when you’ll record programs and certain other types of video content
  • You can stop viewing video content and view it on another device or the same device at a later date.

  • You can and should use it with a free or paid VPN

Note that the player app comes with many more features than the ones that I have just mentioned.
