Superior IPTV provides a number of packages to ensure you get the content that fits your budget. Unlike other providers that throw all their streams into one subscription and charge you the full price, Superior lets you pick from multiple options with varying costs.
You can choose from the following subscriptions:
- Kids Hosting: This is quite a unique package that focuses on kid’s content. It is very affordable and will surely keep the young ones entertained. Also, unlike other packages with access to PG content or even adult channels, you can leave your kids unattended and let them zap all they want. All they will find is content that is appropriate for them. You will get access to 26 kids channels from the UK and US and even a VoD section exclusively catering to children with around 50 movies at the time of writing this review!
- Sports Hosting: As the name suggests, this package focuses on sports channels with access to around 150 channels from USA, CA, UK and even International broadcasters like Bein. Superior also covers club channels like MUTV and league passes such as NBA, NFL, NHL and more. Finally, Superior also has a dedicated group that lists all the live sport events. This makes it easy to find all the current games available for streaming.
- Full Hosting: The full package gives access to all the content from the above package as well as entertainment, movie and news channels from primarily USA, CA and UK. They also broadcast around 50 TV stations from Ireland, India and Pakistan. All in all, the full hosting package has around 550 TV stations and a constantly growing VoD section with around 3200 titles, including movies and TV series!
- Full Hosting 18+: For an extra 2 quid a month, this package gives access to 20 live adult channels and around 80 on-demand movies. This, of course, is on top of the full hosting package.
Superior IPTV also gives you the option to subscribe via Plex, which gives you access to their VoD content. Plex is a fantastic media software that mimics a user experience that can be found on streaming services like Netflix. With the Plex subscription, you can link to Superior’s VoD server via a beautiful interface on virtually any device, including your browser. The best part, though, is that Plex can automatically adjust the quality of your stream to ensure you get smooth video playback. Not many IPTV services have integrated Plex in their service, so definitely give Superior a try if you are interested in VoD only.
We have already given a good overview of the content availability under Packages. However, let us give some more details and examples of available channels and VoD content that you get with the Full Hosting package.
It comes as no surprise that Superior IPTV has all your sports needs covered. After all, they have a package that caters to only this type of content. The sports lineup is quite impressive. For virtually any sporting event you will have the choice of multiple channels. Some, in multiple streaming qualities, to ensure you get the best streaming experience for your bandwidth. Add to this league specific groups and even club channels for UK football clubs. With well over 150 channels to choose from, such as BT Sports, ESPN and Sky Sports, you are guaranteed to not miss another game or sporting event.
What sets Superior IPTV apart from its competition is the availability of multiple sources for the same channel. Especially the main sports channels are often streamed in SD, HD (720p) and Full HD (1080p). This not only lets you pick the quality that works best for your internet connection. It also serves as a backup in case on of the channels goes down.
For general entertainment, you can choose from hundreds of channels, primarily from UK and US/CA. Be it documentaries, music, cooking, news or movies, Superior has more than enough choice to keep you entertained.
In case the adult content is relevant to you, Superior probably has the best line-up that we have seen from any IPTV service. In addition to 20 live channels, their VoD section has another 80 movies for you to choose from. Especially adult VoD is a novelty that might make Superior worth the purchase to you.

Speaking of Superior’s VoD: We found that it had a good mix of around 3000 episodes of new and classic TV series as well as around 200 blockbusters. Naturally, the VoD content is constantly growing with new TV shows and movies being added regularly as they release.
Quality and especially reliability is always going to be subjective. What we can do, however, is compare Superior IPTV with some of the other services that we use to give a good comparison. This does not necessarily mean that this IPTV service will run as good, or bad, for you.
Having said that, our experience with Superior has been fantastic. We used this service for multiple months now and have not seen any degradation in quality or reliability. If anything, Superior has stepped up its game.
The amount of 1080p channels that actually stream without issues is staggering. Streaming sports broadcasts in HD is an absolute joy with Superior IPTV.
Also, zapping through channels feels a lot smoother than with other IPTV providers. This may be due to the fact that there is virtually no buffering when selecting a channel as the stream starts almost instantly.
During playback, we have not experienced any buffering issues. Very seldom we would see a short buffering break when switching to a new channel, but this was difficult for us to re-create consistently. Overall, Superior does live up to its name in providing one of the best streaming experiences, at a very affordable price.
Our experience was equally great with VoD content. Movies started streaming instantly in great quality and fast-forwarding worked like a charm.
The only gripe we have with Superior is the EPG. Whilst it works well and accurately for many popular channels. We did find many gaps in their EPG coverage where programme information was not available.
Slow Streams or Buffering?
Are your streams loading too slow? Getting constant buffering? Not able to stream at full resolution? Check out these tips to improve your streaming experience:
- Use a modern Router that has advanced features like QoS to prioritize video content. Check out our recommended Routers for Streaming.
- If you are using a Wifi connection, be sure to check out our 9 easy steps to improve your Wifi for Streaming.
- Some Internet Service Providers throttle video streaming traffic without telling their customers. A VPN encrypts all your traffic and circumvents throttling, blocking and geographical restrictions.
Also, every now and then we found dead channels or mislabeled ones. However, Superior is quick to fix any issues in their channel line-up.
Superior IPTV supports both Stalker middleware as well as M3U playback via different apps.
While we usually prefer Stalker-based streaming (e.g. with the new Dreamlink T2 or the XPL3000), we actually tested the service on an Android Smart TV using Perfect Player. Superior IPTV has a help section that provides detailed instructions on how to configure most devices and apps (including Perfect Player).
If you want the best cable-like experience, opt for a Stalker-based device. Alternatively, Android devices (here are some below 50 USD) give you more flexibility and support a wide range of applications.
Finally, Roku users are able to access Superior as well.
