Does anyone know if an AppleTV (4K unit) with the GSE IPTV purchase works the same as an andriod box?

I have an older buzztv android box and may restart the old LiveTV subscription and use that (Slow unit) but i'd love an uncomplicated AppleTV option.
Hoping with the GSE app i can just call buddy and give my appletv mac-address and hope with the http server access it works.

Been looking for days for M3U links that are stable can only find 'daily' ones and they're not that good.

Opinions welcomed and if you have any decent IPTV providers worth checking out i'd like to hear back. Plex is getting there.. but limited IMO.
