Is TiviMate Legal?

Of course! This application is simply a media player and does not provide any content. Therefore, it is completely legal to download and use. However, it is important to keep in mind that once you add an IPTV provider, some content may not be authorised for sharing.

Streaming such content could lead to consequences similar to those that result from unauthorised downloading of copyrighted material. To avoid any legal issues, it is important to take precautions when using the app. We recommend using a VPN to ensure your safety and privacy.

TiviMate provides a fantastic user interface with a built-in Electronic Program Guide to browse through content. The app works on various streaming devices and is also available for mobile phones and tablets for live streaming, no matter where you are.
