So Player or SOPlayer is a media player which uses IPTV technology to stream the media contents. The application itself doesn’t stream any movie or live TV show. Like Nora Go app, you need to configure the IPTV credentials on this app to stream the media contents. The application is only compatible with devices running on Android and Android-based operating systems. Here, we will show you the steps to download So Player on Firestick devices.
The quality of the video contents and the channels list entirely depends on the IPTV provider. The SOPlayer app is just the platform which you can use to stream media online. One of the interesting features of this media player is that you can change the appearance of the media player by selecting the dark theme.
Why you need a VPN
While Streaming online, your IP will be exposed easily. Hence ISPs (Internet Service Providers), app developers, government agencies and hackers can track your online activities with ease. At the end of the day, you may face some legal problems if you have streamed any copyrighted contents. To avoid these problems, we recommend you to use VPN (Virtual Private Network). A good VPN lets you hide your real identity by switching your IP to different locations. On the other hand, VPN is also helpful in accessing the media that are geo-restricted. Some of the apps/services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, BBC iPlayer and more are geo-restricted in certain countries. To bypass those restrictions, you need to install a VPN on your device.
After trying out several free and paid VPN services, we recommend you to use NordVPN. It is regarded as the best VPN to safeguard your privacy. While purchasing the NordVPN, make sure to select the annual plans rather than selecting the monthly plans. Moreover, you will also get a 70% instant discount on a 3-year plan.
Note: So Player can’t be used to stream the video files that are stored locally.
