If you don’t want to shell out $20 per month for SET TV IPTV, you can first try Mobdro. This is a free streaming application that provides hundreds of live tv channels from around the world.
The latest Mobdro update even allows the user to record to the hard drive on the streaming box that is being used.
Unfortunately, many channels aren’t available in HD quality but Mobdro is a great alternative for those who want free live channels.
CKay TV is another live tv streaming application that is 100% free. Currently it is working extremely well and is available for side-loading to a Firestick or Fire TV.
Similar to Mobdro, CKay provides hundreds of different channels sorted by Category and more.
CKay TV uses links available on the internet and serves them up on their app. While there is no shortage of TV Channels for viewing, these are often times not available in High Definition. If you are looking for HD quality television, TROYPOINT suggests an IPTV Service.
Downloader is a file downloading application used to side-load apps onto your Fire TV device. Because many apps are not available within the Amazon App Store, Downloader is needed to install them. Apps like Kodi, Terrarium TV, and others must use Downloader for installation.
Using Downloader is as easy as installing the application and entering in the url of the website you want to load/download. With this application installed, a Fire TV or Fire TV Stick turns into a powerful streaming machine. If you want to unlock the full capabilities of your Fire TV device, this is a must-have app.
You can download and install this application for free through the Amazon App store by searching for “Downloader”.
MX Player is an external video player that can easily be installed on numerous devices including the Amazon Firestick and Fire TV. Many streaming apps have the ability to use MX Player as their video player and this is highly recommended.
By installing and using MX Player, it can increase your streaming experience dramatically. Many find that using MX Player with your preferred app is a great way to reduce or eliminate buffering. It can be installed within Cinema APK, CyberFlix, and more.
YouTube is a video streaming tool that is quite possibly the most popular available today. Recently, Amazon removed YouTube from it’s App Store due to an ongoing feud between the two. Fortunately for us it is easy to install YouTube to a Fire TV or Fire TV Stick via side-loading with the Downloader app. Although it is not the official YouTube, this YouTube app works just as good.
While there is more than one way to install the YouTube app onto a Fire TV device, using the Downloader tool is the easiest and most efficient. We have created a tutorial on How To Install YouTube on your Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire TV Cube. Click the link below for installation guide.
Whenever using applications such as Kodi and Terrarium TV onto a Fire TV or FireStick, it is always recommended to use a VPN or (Virtual Private Network). A VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet so your Internet Service Provider, government, and other third parties can’t track or log what you are streaming, downloading, or browsing.
TROYPOINT has tested and tried numerous VPN’s and IPVanish was the best VPN for FireStick, Fire TV, & Fire TV Cube, hands down.
Using IPVanish is as easy as downloading the application directly to your Fire TV Device. Unlike many other VPN Services, IPVanish is available on Amazon’s App Store, making it extremely simple to install. With IPVanish, your data logs will not be stored, you will have the fastest download and streaming speeds available, and there is a 7 day money back guarantee. You can also use one IPVanish account on up to five devices simultaneously. To learn how to install a VPN on your Fire TV or Stick use the link below:
Similar to Downloader, FileLinked is an app used for installing applications onto a Firestick or Fire TV. FileLinked is what used to be DroidAdmins and was once available for download via the Amazon App Store but now must be side-loaded to your device.
Using FileLinked is a great way to install numerous apps at once. This application uses special codes that must be entered into the app to install one or more of your favorites at once. Like many of the applications on this list, we will use Downloader to install FileLinked.
Click the link below to learn how to install FileLinked on Firestick & Fire TV.
ES File Explorer
Another application that can be used to install or side-load apps is ES File Explorer.
ES File Explorer is the most popular file manager for Android Devices available today. Installing ES File Explorer on your Firestick is a great way to add, delete, and manage your device’s apps and more.
Not only can you install apps with this software, but users can clean up space within their device and much more.
Use the following link to install ES File Explorer on Fire TV/Stick.
Just like Downloader, using a Browser is a great way to side-load applications to your Fire TV device. There are many options when it comes to installing a Browser including Chrome, Firefox, Silk, and more. Not only can browsers be used as a side-loading application, but they work perfectly for surfing the web on a Fire TV or Fire Stick.
If you are using the Browser for web surfing, it is probably to your advantage to purchase a wireless keyboard for typing. There are a few options for wireless keyboards available, but my personal favorite is the Rii i8+ BT Mini Wireless Bluetooth Backlight Touchpad Keyboard with Mouse. This keyboard is featured as one of the best Replacement Remotes for Fire TV/Stick on the TROYPOINT Website. Click the link below to learn how to install a browser on Fire TV/Fire TV Stick.
Google Play (Alternative)
As many of us know, the Google Play store hosts hundreds of amazing applications. Most are used for everything from gaming to streaming to browsing and beyond. Unfortunately, the Google Play app cannot be installed on the FireStick, Fire TV, or Fire TV Cube. We can, however, install an alternative that is just as good as Google Play. Most importantly, by installing this alternative, called Aptoide, you will not have to root your device.
The Aptoide application was created specifically for streaming devices like the Fire TV & Fire TV Stick. As a result, the Fire TV/Fire TV Stick remotes work perfectly with Aptoide, unlike other side-loaded apps. Aptoide offers nearly every app Google Play does and is fairly simple to install. To learn how to do so on your Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, or Fire TV Cube, use the link below.
Many of the apps on this list require a side-loading for installation. This is because these applications were not created to be used on a Firestick or Fire TV. However, with the device’s side-loading abilities, thousands of apps work great on the Fire TV and Fire Stick.
However, not all features of the apps work perfectly. Some require a mouse for proper navigation, and this is not part of the original Fire TV remote. Luckily, there is an APK we can install called Mouse Toggle that allows users a mouse function with their provided remote.
Use the link below to install Mouse Toggle on Fire TV/Stick
