Next, we’ll take look at the multi-screen feature. There’s currently 6 options. We chose two screens allow to broadcast two separate channels simultaneously.
With this option the screen with the orange border plays the stream while the other is muted. This way you can watch the score of two different sporting events or keep up with the news / weather.
It’s definitely a nice feature and we didn’t notice any performance issues on BlueStacks. This should work even better if using IPTV Smarters on Android.
