Download Tivimate app
There are two ways to download the program – via Google Play and using the apk file. Both methods are suitable for all Android TV devices, as well as for Windows 7-10 PCs (with a special emulator program).
You can try to install only the apk file on your smartphone, but the application is not guaranteed to work. The same applies to TVs with other operating systems.
Officially: via Google Play
To download the application through the official store, follow the link – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ar.tvplayer.tv&hl=ru&gl=US. The installation of this program proceeds in exactly the same way as any other downloaded from Google Play.
Free: using apk file
You can download the most current version of the application (v3.7.0) at the link – https://trashbox.ru/files20/1453742_8b66a2/ar.tvplayer.tv_3.7.0_3702.apk. File size – 11.2 Mb. What makes the new version different:
- customizable broadcast recording (settings: start date / time and recording duration);
- the ability to hide current and past programs in the browsing history without archiving;
- fixed bug of recording playback via SMB.
When downloading the moda of the application, a message may appear that the file is potentially dangerous and the download is stopped – this is due to the fact that antiviruses often block downloading files from third-party sources. To install the application, you just need to temporarily disable the security program.
All mod versions are hacked – with open pro functionality.
You can also install previous versions of the program. But it is worth doing this in extreme cases – for example, when a fresh variation is not installed for some reason. What older versions can be downloaded:

Possible problems and solutions
The nature of the origin and how to solve the most common problems with the TiviMate application.
This error can occur when working with an archive (in the Premium version). If it appears – the fact is that the codecs of your device cannot cope with this stream “on the fly” – it often happens with long videos. The error occurs from time to time for everyone and goes away on its own. If you want to solve the problem as soon as possible, you can try changing the country in the settings (for example, from Russia to the Czech Republic) – this will “shake up” the server. Sometimes this action helps to bring everything back to normal.
The program guide does not show / disappears
If your device has problems with the built-in EPG, then the easiest way is to install a third-party TV guide. We recommend one of the following:

The program is not installed
If an error occurs during installation and a message is displayed that the program could not be installed, then, most likely, the selected file is incompatible with the device (most often when they try to install the application on other OS). The problem can be solved only by installing the program on a device with a suitable operating system (Android). If you have these / other problems, or just any questions about the application, you can contact the official w3bsit3-dns.com forum – https://w3bsit3-dns.com.to/forum/index.php?showtopic=933497. Experienced users and the developer himself answer there.
