Area 51 IPTVArea 51 IPTV is an inexpensive service that provides over 1,000 live channels with most in HD quality.  As of this writing, Area 51 costs only $7 per month!

This can be installed on any Android-powered device by using their APK installation file.  They also provide a Kodi addon which can be used on any device running this popular media center application.  An iOS application is also available as well.

Area 51 also serves up all of the most popular sport season packages such as NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB.  Pay-per-view sporting events are also available within the service as well.

An Adult section is provided and users may restrict access to this within the settings panel by creating a password.

TROYPOINT always recommends paying on a month-to-month basis with any IPTV provider.  The reason for this is in case they go out of business or you find something better that you like.  Area 51 allows for monthly payments and they email an invoice well in advance of when payment is due.

You can install the service on as many devices as you would like but you can only use it on two at a time unless you purchase additional connections when you register. Additional connections will allow you to use the service on multiple devices simultaneously.

Some IPTV services do not play nice with a VPN but that isn’t the case for this technology.  As you will see in the video below, IPVanish VPN works great with Area 51 which is great news for TROYPOINT subscribers.

TROYPOINT Tip:  You should always use a VPN to protect your identity and security when streaming with IPTV services such as this.

Video Tutorial

In the following video, I am installing Area 51 IPTV onto a Fire TV Stick 4K but the same process will work for all Android-powered devices.

IMPORTANT: If you’re trying to install unverified apps into your Firestick or Fire TV from the Amazon App Store, you can only complete it by side-loading or installing anything into your device without using the official app-distribution method. I recommend using a VPN to install such apps. Click this link to learn how to install a VPN for Firestick, Fire TV, Fire TV Cube.

The VOD section is no longer available within Area 51.  This shouldn’t be a deal breaker due to the fact that we have Cinema APK and Kodi Add-ons for movies and TV shows.
