It seems that every day there is a new IPTV add-on which becomes available on KODI, which is fantastic don’t get me wrong, but have you ever wanted to create your own personal IPTV playlist that no one else has access to? Well you can, and it’s really simple.
In order to create your custom IPTV playlist, you’ll need to have installed an add-on called Playlist Loader (click the link to install).
One of the great things about owning your own list is that well it’s yours! You have control over what goes into it, and can swop and change as you please. If you’re wanting to create a sports IPTV list and a live UK channel list and keep them separate then you can easily do that. In the guide below I will run you through setting up your very own basic custom IPTV list. Let’s get started…
