Android Box y Nvidia Shield
TiviMate is one of the best IPTV players designed specifically for large screens. With TiviMate, you can watch TIVIPRIME live TV channels on Android set-top boxes. TiviMate comes with both a free and a premium version. The free version of TiviMate seems sufficient for users with a playlist they don’t watch too frequently.
If you use IPTV more often, it’s worth upgrading to the premium version. The app supports multiple playlist formats, channel and category renaming, and hidden categories. You can import your own channel logos, customize the order in which channels appear in the TV guide, and take advantage of the search function (which works for both channel names and currently playing programs).
The TiviMate app is compatible with all devices that use Android TV as their operating system, including Amazon Fire TV, Nvidia Shield, and Android TV boxes. Both the free and premium versions of TiviMate can be found on the official Google Play store.
To unlock all the amazing features, you’ll need to purchase the premium version, as the free version is very limited. The premium option includes the following features that are not available with the free version:
How to install Tivimate on Android TV?
We will install the Downloader application from the Play Store
The first thing you need to do is install Downloader, a powerful browser and file manager designed specifically for Android TV-based devices, and this is the item we are most interested in as we will be using it to download any APK from the net.
Downloader is available on the official play store, so you can download it directly to your Android TV device.
Open Play Store, search for Downloader, then install and open the app.
Enable installation from unknown sources for the downloader app
Once launched, it will ask you to grant permission to access local storage. Since this is a file manager, it will need that permission to work. Just press Allow.
Most importantly, you will need to activate the browser option for this application. To do so, a plugin must be installed. In the search box, type the following address: browser.aftvnews.com and press GO.
Wait for the download to finish, and then tap Install.
When the installation process is complete, tap Done.
Then confirm the deletion.

After that click next and Tivimate will start processing the channel list immediately.

Unlock Tivimate premium. (Optional)
Now that you have successfully set up Tivimate with your TIVIPRIME, you will start to notice that many features are not working and that is because you need to activate the premium version and link your account with it. The only place where you can activate your premium account is through the Tivimate companion app, which you can only find on the Android Play Store, which means that if you only have IOS or another operating system, your only solution is to find a device Android or run an Android emulator like bluestacks on your computer to access the Play Store.
If you don’t have a computer or an Android device, the only option left is to ask a friend or family member to buy it from their device if they have an Android or a computer.
1. Search for the Tivimate Companion in the Play Store.
Like any other app, you can search for the Tivimate Companion on the Play Store and download it.
Open the app and then register your account.
The Tivimate Companion only accepts Google Pay, after opening the app you will see two options to create an account or sign in to your current account.
Depending on whether you already have an account with them or not, sign in/create an account.
You will only be asked for your email address and a password. Be sure to save this login in a safe place because you will need it later to activate it in your Tivimate app.
5. Open Tivimate now and sign in to your account:
After completing the payment, open Tivimate and go to settings where you will see the option to unlock premium using the account you just created in the Tivimate Companion.
6. Click Next:
