When I’m working at the Mac I always want to listen/whatch something in background, and usually I want to listen news and informations about the world (not music) in order to be always informed, so my favourite TV channels became: Rai New 24, Sky TG24, La 7. But since I needed a way to listen/watch via internet, I created a simply playlist for the great IINA app for Mac:

IINA TV Copy-paste this code, save it as “TV.m3u8” and open with IINA. But there’s a catch in order to view the SkyTG24 channel, read below (because this URL doesn’t work as you can see)

Since Sky TG24 generates a univoque ID for every session, you need a workaround to view it: Open this url in your browser: https://apid.sky.it/vdp/v1/getLivestream?id=1 &isMobile=false/?id=1 and it will generate your univoque ID: SkyTG24 ID Now you have to copy it and insert into the m3u8 playlist, the url in this case is: https://hlslive-web-gcdn-skycdn-it.akamaized.net/TACT/12221/web/master.m3u8?hdnea=st=1639498341~exp=1702463400~acl=/*~hmac=c3c4c2de19ff0df4b4bb20587ce59af5232eadab2995f445b7506525413805dd

And insert it in the URL below the La7 channel:

#EXTINF: -1 tvg-chno="50" tvg-name="Sky TG24" , Sky TG24
https://hlslive-web-gcdn-skycdn-it.akamaized.net/TACT/12221/web/master.m3u8?hdnea=st=1639498341~exp=1702463400~acl=/*~hmac=c3c4c2de19ff0df4b4bb20587ce59af5232eadab2995f445b7506525413805dd

Now you will be able to watch SkyTG24Sky TG24 With IINA you can use the shortcut command-shift-p to open the channel list and command-right/left arrow to change the channels.

Final tip: you can also creates macOS shortcut to launch it with a keystroke, for example I use this: Shortcut IINA

Then enable this shortcut in your favourite app launcher, I use Raycast with command-\ to quick open it and view the TV on my Mac: Raycast launcher

Let me know if this is useful and buona informazione!
