What are the requirements for the TV7 app?

Multicast - Live
With Multicast you can enjoy delay free live television.

  • Fiber7 or Crossover7
  • Router: IGMP proxy and switches in between IGMP Snooping. > Configuration help
  • TV: HDMI connection
  • Apple TV: with Ethernet cable connection (Apple TV 4th and 5th generation only, older versions are not supported).

We recommend using a 100Mbps connection (also known as Fast-Ethernet). Please configure your router appropriately or use a 4-wire Ethernet cable.


Unicast - Live and Replay via HLS.
With Unicast, there is delay of a few seconds compared to Multicast.

  • Fiber7, Crossover7, Hybrid7, Copper7
  • TV: HDMI connection
  • Apple TV: use a wired Ethernet connection to your router, alternatively you may use a WLAN connection (only works on 4th and 5th generation of Apple TV, older versions are not supported).

    System settings: On the Apple TV, you may switch between multicast/HLS by toggling the Multicast-setting under „Settings" -> „Apps" -> „TV7" (can not be disabled in the TV7 App).
