How to add a m3u Playlist to IPTV on PLEX

Hi, Took me a while but I finally found the IPTV Channel for PLEX, installed it and tested it and is working fine.  It came with six pre-installed channels.  I found a U S playlist on the web as well as an International list but I don't know how to install them.  Here are some pics of how they start out; pic-1.PNGpic-2.PNG.

What I need to know is where to put these two list so that IPTV can find them and also how to manually install them.  Should I refer to the heading?  Rename them? .  Since I am knew to this, every little thing is a big thing to me because I've never done it.  Thanks for your help.
PS, I use Windows 10

Shut down your Plex media server first.

1. Open file C:\Users\YOURACCOUNTNAME\AppData\Local\Plex Media\IPTV.bundle\Contents\Resources\playlist.m3u with a notepad

2. Copy the text after the line of #EXTM3U from your m3u text file at the end of the above file

3. Save as a new .m3u file at another folder

m3u playlist
add .m3u extension and in "Save as type" drop down menu, select "All Files"

4. Copy and paste the new .m3u file to its original location in Step 1, you will be asked whether you want to overwrite the file, click Yes

3. Save as a new .m3u file at another folder - This is giving me a  problem.  I went into the current Playlist in Resources and opened it with notepad. It looks to me like I could copy and paste the new playlist at the end of the existing playlist and simply save it.  So I'm confused about creating a new folder.
In other words, do as you said in Number 2 above and be done with it.  Where does the file aspect come into play?  Do I create a file in Resources and transfer the new updated playlist to it?  I don't understand. Sorry.

You can try your way to see whether you see the new content in your plex media server.

My suggestion is based on the fact that C:\Users\YOURACCOUNTNAME\AppData\Local\Plex Media\IPTV.bundle\Contents\Resources\ is a system protected folder and it is unlikely that you can save the change.

By saving the .m3u file elsewhere and copy the file back can ensure the file is overwritten and there should be a UAC prompt when you paste the file.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.  You were extremely helpful.  I did it my way, save the file and it works fine.  Only problem was that the two list that I had were primarily FM stations from around the world and not live TV stations.  Do you happen to know of a good source for those links?
