[Release] NZ & AU Combined IPTV & EPG Files


Here is some quick combined NZ & Australian (Sydney) files.
I chose Sydney so the EPG files will also work with Apsattv's playlist.

You can view all the included Sydney channels HERE
and all the included NZ channels HERE.

Below are the different types of files that are automatically generated.

Raw

These m3us files are made to be used with any device / program that does not have it's own files below.
They don't pipe any streams and don't add any extra headers etc.
Due to this, some streams (eg. ABC) most likely won't work.

KODI

These m3u8 files are made to be used with KODI and IPTV Simple Client add-on.
They are very similar to the raw files, except they add a X_FORWARD header for all streams.

TvHeadend

These m3u8 files are made to be imported into Tvheadend as an IPTV Automatic Network.
All the streams are piped to ffmpeg to re-container them as MPEG-TS.


Therefore, they require ffmpeg to be installed on the system running Tvheadend and that it's path is /usr/bin/ffmpeg (symlink if different).

If you don't have ffmpeg, you could try using the above RAW files instead - but you may find quite a few streams will not work without being piped through ffmpeg. I suggest a google for "how to install ffmpeg on XX". The steps are usually pretty easy.

EPG

All above files use my unique channel identifications.
This allows them to work with my below EPG files.
These are full 7 day EPG files for all Freeview channels.

All streams are scraped hourly and checked nightly for maximum reliability.
Where possible, the providers API's are used to scrape the stream URL's which will help reduce risk of outdated streams.
I am automatically notified of any failed streams.

You can view all the generated files on my Github HERE.
(All above links simply redirect to the latest Github files)

Enjoy!
