i know plenty about iptv, but nothing about plexshares. testing out a trial right now and it's pretty impressive with the response and quality.
what are the restrictions - it appears that i can play more than 1 stream at a time in my house and i can also play on my phone using cell data simultaneously. i don't want to get banned for breaking the rules though

any suggestions for providers? i'm mainly looking for something that has new tv show releases

Number of streams depends on the seller. Don’t believe they can restrict through Plex (they couldn’t anyway), but they can see if you’re using it in X locations and then kick you.

for best results, try to find a seller that isn’t using Google Drive for hosting. Many try to leverage free/cheap hosting accounts that have “unlimited bandwidth” and they are generally pretty meh

I don't really know the nuances or technical details but it's easy to find providers on a subreddit and ask for a free one-day trial.

From my experience? My plex account is used on many many devices and it appears I can stream on all of them simultaneously. Otherwise it's Plex so the UI is boss and pretty responsive.

I have a direct-download account (like Rapidgator) but I stopped using it to DL movies since they're usually on Plex and it's so damn convenient.

No fancy cloud data though, Just an 83 TB server on a Gigabit. Already have too many shares though. Have to impose 6 streams simultaneous limit :/

weird, it plays perfectly on my firetv2 but cuts out on my shield. the app layout is totally different on the shield as well, might need to update, will troubleshoot more later
