Can I use IPTV with Surfshark?

In this guide, you will learn how you can securely watch IPTV from anywhere using Surfshark. Surfshark does not grant free access to the IPTV platform - you will still need an active IPTV subscription.

Note: we cannot guarantee that the instructions below will solve all IPTV issues. Each IPTV service provider has unique Terms and Conditions. Make sure you get familiar with them to avoid any unintentional violations when using a VPN.


Here's what you'll need in order to watch IPTV securely:


Get Surfshark VPN


To connect to a VPN, you will need a supported device and an active Surfshark VPN subscription that you can purchase on our pricing page.

Join risk-free - Surfshark offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.



Install the Surfshark app


Once you have the subscription in place, install the Surfshark app or the browser extension, and connect to your preferred VPN location.

Connect to the VPN


Connect to any preferred location using the Surfshark app that will most likely work with your IPTV provider. This can also help you overcome ISP throttling. Since a VPN hides your IP and encrypts your traffic, your ISP can't see what you are doing and, as a result, cannot throttle your connection based on your activity.


Accessing IPTV


Ensure that your VPN connection is established by following this guide, then access your IPTV platform.


Congratulations, you can now sit back, relax, and enjoy your preferred streaming content securely! 


If you are experiencing issues, please try the following suggestions:

  • Uninstall and reinstall the IPTV application while connected to the VPN;
  • Try connecting to several different locations in our application e.g, UK, US, France, Italy;
  • Change the default protocol in Surfshark settings. Go to the Settings window, click on VPN Settings, and go to the Protocol tab. Try different protocols - OpenVPN/UDPOpenVPN/TCP.
