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.

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Where possible, the providers API's are used to scrape the stream URL's which will help reduce risk of outdated streams. You can view all the generated files here.
