IPTV using iLox

I’m trying to get away from Shaw services. I’ve been informed iLox throttles IPTV traffic resulting in an unacceptable level of buffering. I currently enjoy great streaming services like Acorn and Netflix with no buffering.

Is there anyone with actual experience? Does a VPN worsen the situation?

Yes, a VPN slows things down. Sometimes by as much as 75%. But you have iLox and a good speed, so you should see no buffering. Any reports that iLox throttles are just rumours from people who have no other explanation.

I am using Britbox on a Roku, along with all kinds of other streaming services on the Roku, through my ExpressVPN-modified Netgear router just like yours, and see no issues.

I have seen ads from other VPN services who insist that their services have no loss of speed using some special software techniques, including ExpressVPN, something called MediaStreamer. And they have special info on IPTV.

I used to use Shaw, but now stream via a FS 4K and Android TV box. IPTV isn't necessary since everything is available without it. I don't find the lack of a listing an issue. Your opinion may differ. The irony is that I now obtain much more than Shaw could offer, and without the exorbitant cost.

Since IPTV means "Internet Protocol TV", and is not a "brand" of streaming, the fact is all streaming is IPTV. Therefore anything one gets on a Firestick or Android box or Roku or Chromecast... it is all IPTV.

I was referring to an IPTV service, rather than the protocol itself.

As there are hundreds of services with IPTV in the name, I wasn't sure.
