This instructional guide will show you How to Install NewPipe on Firestick/Android for an Ad-Free YouTube experience.
NewPipe is an easy-to-use Ad-Free YouTube application that works on nearly any streaming device.
This includes the Amazon Firestick which is the most popular media device available today.
This is likely due to its “jailbreaking” abilities that allow you to install thousands of applications not available in the Amazon App Store.
NewPipe is one of several YouTube alternatives that work to provide videos for streaming without ad interruptions.
Using this clone is one of the solutions mentioned in our guide on YouTube Videos Not Playing.
We also suggest the popular SmartTubeNext Application.
In the guide below, we are installing NewPipe on a Fire TV Stick Lite.
However, these steps will also work for any variation of Firestick including Firestick 4k and Fire TV Cube.
This process also applies to those using Android devices such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL Boxes, Chromecast, Android TV Boxes, phones, tablets, and more.
For those using an Android Phone or Tablet, you can install YouTube Vanced for an ad-free YouTube alternative:
Important Note: YouTube users viewing content outside the US will want to make sure to Unblock YouTube through the use of a VPN.
Using a VPN to “unblock YouTube” will allow you to change IP Addresses to a US server so you can watch YouTube wherever you are!
For more information on “unblocking websites” like YouTube, we suggest viewing our guide below.
