This in-depth report on Kraken TV APK will provide you with important information that you need to know about this app on Firestick/Fire TV & Android TV Box.

Since this app can’t be installed through an app store, it must be side-loaded which we illustrate in the screenshot guide below.

Kraken TV is a reliable free IPTV app that can be installed on just about every Android device. After the downfall of Modbro, many are looking for a live TV streaming option and Kraken TV is a great choice.

This free streaming app provides tons of categories and channels for live viewing and features an easy-to-use interface. Some of these categories consist of USA TV, UK TV, Swift Movies, Kids TV, Wildlife, Sports TV, and more.

1 -Kraken TV Details & Description

There is also a search option provided within the app that can be used to explore specific channels and make navigation easier.

Unfortunately after testing Kraken TV, we found that that this app does not have subtitles integration, contains ads, and most channels are in SD quality.

This is just a simple, free Live TV application that provides hundreds of channels, which mostly worked well.

Since Kraken TV was made as an APK, some features are not easily accessible on a Fire TV or Firestick.

To use these, one must use Firestick Remote Alternatives or install mouse toggle onto their device.

Click the link below to learn more about Mouse Toggle and how to install on a Firestick/Fire TV.

  1. installed the on google box. cant find the app. i can run it if i click open after installer. but app is no where listed.. cant even uninstall

  2. Tried installing it on my Samsung Galaxy S21 and my Lookout Security flagged it as a Trojan and prompted me the option to uninstall it. Should I ignore Lookout?

    1. Hi Sal, if you read the review above, our scan found problematic files as well. Proceed with caution and make sure you are using a VPN.

  3. Even though I have permitted installation of apps outside google play it seems kraken wont install properly even though it’s listed in security allow.
