Piren is a fully-featured channel list manager for Internet TV, with an integrated player which currently supports M3U8/HLS streams. Once registered, you have granted access to a personal URL for your own M3U playlist, that you can use from everywhere, with any compatible TV box or software.
Piren's extremely easy-to-use interface allows you to add, edit, delete and reorder any TV channel or video stream in no time. You can also search for any item already present in the database or look for recently added entries, and quick update your channel list without having to find and type any URL.
Add any TV channel providing its stream URL. Keep pressed the name or URL of an entry to edit. Reorder the channels by dragging them. You can also search for any TV channel already present in the database for quick updating your channel list without having to find and type any URL. Then access the list from everywhere with your personal URL: any change you make will be availale in real-time.
Download the app for free, or access it directly from the web.

The video player is experimental and currently available only on iOS, Android or desktop PC/Mac computers with Safari, but you can access your personal M3U playlist with other applications like Kodi or VLC.
A very small Debian based system which runs Kodi: ideal Home-Server distro for geeks.
Piren/OS is a very small Linux distribution built to turn your computer into a Kodi (previously XBMC) media center. It is designed for geeks who already have some experience with Debian, being minimalist while delivering a fully standard software base. Using Kodi's simple-iptv-client you can directly access your channel list, simply providing the personal M3U URL.
Piren/OS only provides the Debian packages necessary for running the latest version of Kodi available in the deb-multimedia repository. Once your system is installed you decide which packages to add, not the other way around. This design provides many advantages like very fast boot times, minimal resource usage, fewer and faster update cycles. At the same time, it allows you to choose from the unlimited software base available for Debian/GNU Linux for any additional feature that you actually need.
