So, let’s get to know the basic layout. when the app first loads the default home screen is TV shows and popular. on the right-hand side, we’ve got a menu and on the right-hand side you have an upside-down triangle of three lines and selecting this allows you to filter it by year. so, and below that, we’ve got TV shows broken down into different sections. so, you’ve got popular, top-rated, on the air and airing today and you can flick through each of these sections. okay now let’s have a look at how this app works when streaming a TV show or movie. a popular TV show right now at the time of filming this that has just returned from its mid-season break is the TV show.
And you can see the thumbnail for that right there. so, click to select it. once you click on it, you’re taken to a new screen. and here you can see that in the top right you can add this show to your watch list. just by clicking up the right corner button there or you can add it to your tracked account. so, if you’ve got a tracked account and you’ve got it logged in this will add it to your collection. and you have the option to search. below that, you have got the option to watch now. choose a season or view the trailer. then underneath that is a brief overview or description of your movie or TV show. and then underneath that, there’s a nice feature which is showing you the cast members. and clicking on any one of them will take me to another page showing you what other TV shows or movies that that actor has also been in.
And then below that, there is a related section of other shows that might be of interest to me that are similar to this show. so, when we click on choose season. you will see that the seasons are listed on the left-hand side. then all of the episodes from that season are listed on the right. so, you can just click on whichever season or episode you want to watch. so, once you click on an episode or a movie that you want to watch this then takes you to a new screen where you can see that a scrape of sources is being carried out. which will then display in a list on the screen. you can see that the links we get back tell you what quality they are in and what size the file is. this is good to know if you have a data allowance or a slower internet speed and if this is the case you can select a lower quality link and size of the file. so, you can choose the quality of the stream that you want to watch in just by clicking to select it on any of the links. now when you do click on any of the links, you’ll get a pop-up menu with a few different options. you can just play the video using an internal player.
So, you don’t even have to worry about installing anything extra to be able to watch any content within Teatv. or you can choose to play with an external player. you can also choose to play with subtitles. the language that subtitle is in is automatically in English. But you can change this in the settings. let’s click on play. after a few seconds, your chosen episode will start to play. So, you can pause, change episode change or choose a subtitle and change the stream or the quality. to exit at any point just press the back button on your remote control. so, go back to the main menu now and tell you some really useful settings.
So, the first thing we’re going to do is look at the menu on the left-hand side. and to access that on the Fire Stick all you do is click across to the left with your remote control. now there are a lot of cool features that we can access directly from this menu. we can search for any movie or TV show or we can choose to discover. and if you choose this section you can see that there are some different categories. such as WWE and UFC. these sections are currently limited to only a few shows or movies. but this may be added to overtime. Next, there is a button for movies. and if you click to select that you can see that we’ve got other options that we can filter across the top of the screen. So, I’ve got popular, top-rated, upcoming and now Playing. going back to the menu.
The next option we’ve got is TV shows. if you click on that that will be the same as the main menu when we first entered at t TV with the options across the top. Then we have HD releases. and this is good if you’re a fan of only watching content in high definition. so, you will be able to find anything in this section available in 720p and 1080p. underneath that one, we’ve got a button for a calendar. and if you click to select it this will show you upcoming episodes of TV shows. you also have a filter in the top right-hand corner where you can change this from today to upcoming and this will show you what’s upcoming over the next few days. so, this is handy for example if you wanted to choose something that’s going to be aired over the next couple of days you can go into it select it and then add it to your watch list. so that you will be reminded next time you go into this application that you’ve got it to watch.
So, the next section we have is live TV. and from here if you have a paid IPTV subscription. then you can add an M3U Playlist. so, you can then view your live TV channels through using teatv application, I tested this feature with an M3U Playlist from my IPTV provider. which updated the live TV information. and the channels appeared on this list.
So underneath that, we have a category section. and this is self-explanatory you can just filter different categories.
Then underneath that, we’ve got a collection option. now if you’ve logged in to tracked TV. this will show you what you have available in your collections.
Going back to the side menu underneath that you have a watchlist. now this section is broken down into movies or TV shows. If you have selected anything to add to your watchlist. it will appear here. so, this is handy if you’re having a browse around. and find something you want to watch. but not right now just tap to add it’s your watch list by selecting the button that we looked at earlier on. then it will save it to this one central location to make it easier to find at a later date.
Then underneath that, we have a recent section. so, anything you’ve watched recently will appear in this list.
Now we’re going to move on to the settings. first, we have the option to log into your tracked TV account. for auto-tracking of your watched movies and TV shows and you can select this option to log into your account. now underneath that, we have some generic settings. that you can take a look through to alter your user experiences when using teatv. and as there are quite a few and most of them are self-explanatory.
So, the next interesting section is choosing a primary language. now, this is a good feature if you want to change the language that your subtitles are searched for and displayed in.
Next, you can change your default player. from the internal player or from the tea player which you can find from the app to store.
You can see that you’ve got the option where you can log in and link your real-debrid account. if you don’t know what real-debrid is. I highly recommend that you take a look at it. it can help improve upon your viewing experience when using apps like these.
