The following tutorial will show you how to install an all-in-one Live Channels App on Firestick and Fire TV.

There are numerous free live services available directly through the Amazon App Store that work great with this app.
One of the most popular is Pluto TV and this app works fabulously in conjunction with it.

Warning! Protect Yourself With IPVanish VPNMost cord-cutters use a IPVanish VPN and rightfully so.
The free streaming applications, addons, and IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.
Without a IPVanish, your IP Address is being logged.
Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.
Your current identifying IP Address is 2600:387:c:6b14::5
When you use IPVanish, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.
IPVanish VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet.
This will prevent your Internet Service Provider, app/addon developers, government agencies, and any 3rd party from logging what you’re accessing online.
The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is IPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy.
It’s 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.
Register for IPVanish Account & Save 63% with Yearly Plan
Step 2 – From the home screen hover over Find.
For those of you using Android TV devices, you can easily install the IPVanish app directly through Google Play Store.
Step 3 – Scroll down and click Search.
Step 4 – Type in “Ipvanish” and click the first option.
Step 5 – Click the IPVanish VPN app.
Step 6 – Click Download.
Step 7 – Once the IPVanish app installs, click Open.
Step 8 – Enter your IPVanish account information and click Log In.
You will get your username and password when you register for an account.
Step 9 – Click Connect.
Step 10 – Click OK.
Step 11 – Success! Your identifying IP Address has changed and you are now anonymous.
Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.
Congratulations! You are now protected by IPVanish 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.
You can now setup IPVanish VPN on all of your other Internet-connected devices. You can use IPVanish on unlimited devices!

Live Channels App Description & Features
The Live Channels app is a fabulous tool for those who use multiple services to stream Live TV.
Using the application is a great way to integrate all of your favorites into one location for a seamless streaming experience.
The guide above shows how to integrate Tubi TV and Xumo within Live Channels. Both of these services worked with the Live Channels application, however, this was not the case for every app.
Upon testing, we noticed that certain applications such as STIRR and Haystack did not pull channels into the app and therefore did not work.
One of the best features available is the ability to watch PIP (Picture in Picture) with Live Channels.
To do so, hover over Options when viewing a Channel and select PIP:
You will now see PIP on the home screen and within any apps you open:
Overall, this app is a great tool for Firestick users that stream live tv.
Combining multiple platforms into one location is a great way to get more channel options and content in one location.
These both feature tons of live television apps that you can install directly to your streaming device.
