The Smart STB app is NOT related to our service, nor do we claim it to be and we are not responsible for the app or any changes that the owners choose to make to Smart STB.
How to install and activate the free trial period of the Smart STB
From the app market on your smart tv search, find and install Smart STB App.
After that we can activate the trial period. To do that we first need to find the Software MAC Address which is required for app activation on Smart-STB website.
To find Software MAC address do as follows:
Once the app is opened, you`ll see the above picture on your TV screen. You need to immediately press Enter button on your remote controller. On some remote controllers it is a sign. On others which have a central touch pad simply press the center of the pad. On some others it would work by pressing arrow keys.
Select System Settings.
Select Device info.
Here we have two mac addresses:
- Software MAC address which is necessary for app activation on Smart-STB website.
- Virtual MAC address which is necessary for IPTV service activation on IPTV provider server.
Now that we know the required MAC info, it is time to activate the app trial period. First log onto trial activation page of Smart-STB website by clicking here.
Clicking on the link provided above should show you the above content.
We have trimmed some of the page to focus on the most important part.
Green arrow shows the proper field for entering Software MAC Address.
Red arrow shows the field in which we can enter portal URL of your IPTV provider.
It can either be entered from here or later from the app on your TV.
Remember to checked the TOS box before finishing up. Finally click Order Now.
Once you have typed in the correct software mac address,
the following message in green should show up.
You need to register on their website ultimately.
So if you have not registered already, you must.
Now as you can see, Order Status is set as Active meaning the trial period has started.
Now you will need to give the Virtual MAC address to us,
please fill out the 24hr Free Trial form by clicking here.
Once the order is complete we will email you back with the IPTV Portal/URL you will need.
- Installation of IPTV Portal/URL
Now that the app has been activated, we need to input an IPTV source from a provider of choice. From the device info page of the app, find Virtual MAC address and send it to the IPTV provider. They should register the MAC address on their system and provide you with a IPTV Portal/URL. Once Portal/URL is received, follow these steps to input it into the app:
Just like the first time we did it above at the beginning of this tutorial, right after Loading Portal sign shows up, press enter. Then go to System Settings. Now choose Portal as we need to input the portal Url.
You should see the Portal Settings page like the picture above.
In Portal 1 URL type a desired name for main portal and in Portal URL input the Url you have been provided by the IPTV Provider you are subscribed to.
Once done, press Return button on remote controller. Going back to the previous page, Restart Portal must be selected.
Next time you start the app, IPTV portal should load with bouquets and details of IPTV service ready to be used.
To continue using the Smart STB app you will need to buy it direct from them.
