TVTap Features & Description
When the application has been successfully installed, you are now able to view the multiple channels that TVTap provides. The different categories include: Entertainment, Sports, News, & Movies. Their motto is “we cover all major leagues. You cannot miss any of your favorite shows, movies, and sports.”
The most popular channels available on this app include: ABC, A&E, USA, CNN, CNBC, Discovery Channel, ESPN, ESPN 2, TSN, Fox Sports, and many more. TVTap also provides a search tool if you don’t find the channels you are looking for.
In addition to its Android device compatibility, TVTap offers a friendly user interface and simple design that will assist you in finding your favorite content. Their bookmarking feature also makes it easy to save all your favorite channels within the application.
One issue you may find with TVTap is the advertisements that pop up within the app. If you encounter an ad, simply click the back button on your remote to exit out.
Within the Settings Category of this app is the ability to change your video player. Right now, the only two options are Go Player and MX Player. I suggest MX Player as it usually prompts less buffering and advertisements.
Users can also change the player view to fullscreen which will auto-play in full-screen mode instead of a small window.
While most TVTap channels do provide a stream, not all of them work consistently. You will more than likely experience some buffering while using this application. That is why for reliable Live TV in HD Quality TROYPOINT recommends an IPTV Service:
Protect Yourself With A VPN When Using This Technology
Most cord-cutters use a VPN to hide their Internet activity while streaming movies, TV shows, and live channels.
If you aren’t using a VPN when accessing free or low-cost media, your Internet Service Provider, government, hackers, and app developers can log everything that you do online through your visible IP Address.
Your current IP Address is 184.108.40.206
The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is IPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy.
Its important to use a VPN that is fast since we are streaming large HD files. Its also crucial to find one that keeps no logs of what their subscribers access while online.
Setting up IPVanish VPN on your streaming device is simple!
Step 1 Register for an IPVanish VPN account by clicking the link below.
This exclusive link provides you with a hefty discount, only available to TROYPOINT visitors like you.

Step 3 – Click the IPVanish VPN option that appears.
Step 4 – Click the IPVanish icon under Apps & Games.
Step 5 – Click Download.
Step 6 – Click Open.
Step 7 – Enter your username and password to login. Your username is the email that you used to register for IPVanish service with and your password is automatically generated and emailed to you.
Step 8 – Click Connect button.
Step 9 – Click OK for Connection request if it appears.
Step 10 – You will notice that your IP Address changes along with location of connection. You are now operating anonymously through your device.
Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.
Congratulations! You are now protected by a VPN which means everything that you stream or access through your Firestick or Android TV Box is hidden from the rest of the world.
If you ever need to stop the VPN service, simply re-launch the application and click the DISCONNECT button.
