What is IPTV Beeline?
11 years ago, Beeline, owned by VimpelCom, launched television over the Internet. This broadcast is called IPTV. Home digital television Beeline TV offers its users to watch TV channels, films and series. This is nothing more than an online cinema!
The main advantages of interactive television Beeline TV:
- more than two hundred different channels for all ages;
- HD picture quality and no ads;
- you can watch TV not only on TV, but also on a computer, smartphone, tablet;
- it is possible to control the broadcast (pause, rewind, record, and even create an individual schedule for TV programs), if the purchased set-top box has this function.
To be able to watch IPTV from Beeline, you need to be their current subscriber. Therefore, if an Internet cable from Beeline has not yet been connected to your apartment or you have another provider, then the master should visit you and lead the cable from Beeline.
The package contains:

Connecting IPTV from Beeline using a set-top box
If you have an old-style TV (without Smart TV), the connection is made through a special
TV set-top box . Step-by-step actions for connecting a TV and PC to Beeline TV:
- Connect the switch and set-top box to the network.
- Connect the switch to the Internet wire brought to your house by the Beeline company.
- Connect the patch cords from the purchased kit to the switch.
- Combine the switch and set-top box with one of the patch cords. On the set-top box, the jack of interest is called NETWORK. Connect the second patch cord to the PC (now it also has the Internet).
- Connect the set-top box and the TV with tulips, SCART-RCA or HDMI cable.
- Turn on the set-top box by clicking on the corresponding button, if it works correctly, the green light will light up.

How to watch Beeline TV through a computer
Beeline TV can be watched on a computer. If you are a subscriber of the “Home Internet and TV” package, then you have access to the entire list of channels declared in the tariff (the broadcast must go through a set-top box). But if the service fee is not paid to the account in time, the list of channels will be reduced to 25 pieces. The procedure for connecting Beeline TV to a computer is as follows:
Next, you need to install the VCL player or IP-TV player (optional). We recommend using the versatile and easy-to-use VCL media player. You can download it from the
official website . To watch IPTV Beeline on a computer, you must:
- Launch the installed VLC player.
- Press the key combination Ctrl + P to enter the player settings.
- At the bottom left, we mark the checkbox responsible for displaying all available settings.
- We make the following settings: in the “Input / Codecs” section, in the “MTU of the network interface” line, set the value to 1500; in the “Additional” section in the “Network data cache” line, set 3000 ms; in the “Video” section there is a subsection “Filters” where you must check “Deinterlacing”.
- We save the changes.
- By clicking “Media” in the main window of the player, you need to select “Open file” and specify the location of the playlist on your computer.
How many TVs can I connect?
Up to five devices can be connected. This service is connected separately and is called “Multiroom”. The advantage is that all TVs retain the video recording and delay function.
Possible problems and their elimination
The main problems and how to solve them are presented in the table below:
|An inscription “No signal” appears or just a dark screen.||Reboot the set-top box by unplugging the power cord for 5 seconds, then plug it back in. Wait until the console is fully loaded.|
|The channel shows the first 3-5 seconds. The image freezes and crumbles into squares. There is a red cross on the screen. There are sound problems.||Carefully check if the Internet cable and the cable from the set-top box are intact. If there is no visible damage, restart the set-top box, switch and router by unplugging them from the outlet for 5 seconds. Follow the link and check if your router is configured correctly. Select your router model from the list and read the recommendations on how to configure it. If this does not help, reflash the console. To do this, restart it according to the above scheme 5 times in a row until the gear icon appears on the screen. But remember that after flashing, all programs that were on the console will be erased. Call technical support at 8 (800) 700 80 00.|
|The inscription “Press OK to unlock”||Enter the pin code to unlock (it is indicated in the user manual).|
