The IPTV scene is currently a mess with the recent shutdown of XtreamCodes as providers are scrambling to find alternate channel sources and panel software. Iconic has successfully migrated to a new platform. For other providers, I cannot vouch so use at your own risk.
Also, a majority of IPTV services are currently experiencing issues with their payment provider, which may delay access to the service once payment is done. Closely follow the instruction by the providers to avoid delays.

Iconic Streams – Best IPTV for English TV and Sports – SHUT DOWN!
In my quest for finding the best IPTV services, I am constantly trying out new and up-and-coming providers to find what everyone is looking for: A reliable and affordable IPTV service provider that covers all the bases.
Plenty of channels, HD streaming quality, minimal buffering, and an EPG that covers at least the mainstream channels. It seems like I found another one of those: Iconic Streams.
It doesn’t come without some downsides, of course. After all, IPTV streaming is almost always a compromise of cost vs quality vs reliability (certainly when compared to cable providers). But let’s start with some of the positives.
New providers are always a good thing. For one, it fuels the competition which leads to lower prices and better services. But, more importantly, new services tend to be undersubscribed. This allows for greater bandwidth allocation to individual streams and more reliable service for users.
Finally, many of the big-name providers tend to get blocked by UK ISPs at some point, requiring a VPN to continue to stream Premier League matches. This is not the case with new services.
Iconic Streams definitely seems to have plenty of server power to spare, granting every subscriber 2 simultaneous streams at no extra cost. This is great since it allows you to stream your football game in the living room, while your wife watches her reality TV show in the bedroom.
