Apollo TV: A Reliable Streaming Service

I recently became aware of a streaming service called Apollo TV. Apollo is an IPTV app. IPTV stands for Internet Protocol television.Apollo TV With Apollo TV, you can gain access to all types of programs, movies, TV shows, sports, and more.

IPTV Services Have Changed

Back in the day, when I first became aware of streaming services, I used an app called Kodi. Kodi is an open-source app that’s completely free. Kodi is still alive and kicking and still free. It provided the same TV-watching options as Apollo TV. My problem with Kodi was that it seemed glitchy and complicated. With all the themes, skins, and features, some didn’t play well with the others. Over time, I gave up and went back to mainstream streaming services.

Apollo TV, on the other hand, is not free. It’s cheap, but not free. An annual subscription will cost around $160 (I was paying more than that per month for traditional services). They have monthly and quarterly subscriptions, but the most cost-effective is the annual subscription.

Comparing Streaming Services

In my opinion, one of the biggest differences between Kodi and Apollo TV is stability. Apollo TV doesn’t freeze, stutter, or buffer. It is also easy to use. There is a slight learning curve if it’s your first time using an IPTV app. After mastering the curve, however, Apollo TV is simple to navigate. With Kodi, because of all its various and assorted moving parts, it became too much for me to manage on a daily basis. And there were always updates to install.Watching TV

Traditional streaming services like Hulu, Netflix, and Apple TV make navigation easy. They also offer fewer program options. Almost all programs on Netflix, Hulu, and other services are available on Apollo TV.

My goal was always to cut the cable cord, but having a sports fan in the house made that problematic. Some sports packages sold through streaming services are so costly that keeping our local cable company made financial sense. However, it seems that Apollo TV has solved that problem.

Signing Up for Apollo TV

You get a 10-day full-access free trial when you first sign up. Those ten days give you enough time to check things out and understand whether this is for you. Within 24 hours, I knew it was a done deal.

Apollo Plans

To take advantage of the free trial, you first have to select a service plan.  After choosing the plan, click Subscribe Now. That is when you’ll get the information on the ten-day free trial. You can always change the plan after the trial is over.  I selected the monthly plan for the free trial but instead signed up for a year once the trial was over.

Using a VPN with IPTVSurfshark

If you use IPTV services, I strongly recommend getting a VPN. VPN stands for Virtual Private Network and protects your privacy. A recent online experience made me realize I needed a VPN, but that’s the subject of another post. In my case, I chose Surfshark as my VPN. They came highly recommended by a few tech people I respect. The combo of Surfshark and Apollo TV seems to be working wonderfully.

I used to use IPVanish, but that too (along with Kodi) had a few issues.  Maybe things have changed since I last used them, but for now, I’m a Surfshark gal.

Things to Know

Apollo TV works on the Amazon Firestick, Apple devices, and computers. It does not work on Roku. For more information on device compatibility, check out their Installation Guides page.

Words of Caution

Several websites are claiming to be the original Apollo TV. When I started my due diligence, I was turned off because I saw several scammy sites. The grammar was cringeworthy, and the technical information was incorrect. Make sure you’re using the right Apollo TV site.

Do Your Research

Technology changes quickly. I wrote this in December of 2023, and things might have changed depending on when you’re reading this. Please do your research. On this LTG blog, I share my experiences and limited tech knowledge. Please take what I say and double-check things before implementing anything I share here. I do my best to make sure the information is accurate, but like I said, technology changes quickly.
