nova tv apk

This in-depth review of Nova TV will provide you with important information that you need to know about this app on Firestick, Fire TV, and Android TV Box.

Is Nova TV safe to use?  Is Nova TV legal? How do I install Nova TV?  We will answer those questions and more in this article.

The reason why we ask legal questions is due to the fact that Nova TV isn’t available in popular app stores such as Amazon App Store or Google Play.

This is oftentimes a warning sign.

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

Nova TV is a fork of Terrarium TV and is a great Streaming App that contains a solid library of Movies and TV Shows to choose from.

Currently, it is working fabulously and pulling in tons of high-quality links, especially when integrated with Real-Debrid.

For these reasons and more, Nova is included within our lists of Most Popular APK’s and Firestick Apps.

We can easily install Nova TV APK on the Amazon Firestick 4K.

TROYPOINT TIP: The best way to get the most out of your Firestick or Fire TV is by “jailbreaking” the device.

Is Nova TV Safe to Use?

Before we install this application, I will scan the official Android APK installation file with VirusTotal.

Here is the screenshot of the scan results:

VirusTotal did find one suspicious file within the APK which looks like something pertaining to ad-ware.

We always preach about the importance of using a VPN with questionable applications such as Nova TV.

When we see flagged files in VirusTotal, a trusted VPN is pretty much required to protect your identity and security.

Nova TV APK Features & Details

Nova TV presents a great user interface and easy navigation. As mentioned previously, there are a ton of popular Movies and TV Shows to choose from within this APK, and they work great.

Some of the categories to choose from within the Movies menu include Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Action, History, Horror, Family, Si-Fi, Romance, and others.

The TV Shows categories consist of Comedy, Crime, Drama, Family, Kids, Mystery, Reality, Action & Adventure, Soap, Documentary, and many more.

Nova TV also allows users to add their favorite Movies and TV Shows to a “Collection.”

This is essentially the same concept as “adding to favorites” as seen in many other APKs.

Refer towards the bottom of this post on how to add your favorite Movies and TV Shows to a “Collection.”

It’s important to point out that one of the few downsides to Nova TV is that there are some ads present.

We didn’t notice anything major, but if you prefer an APK with zero ads then we recommend checking out some of our other Best Streaming Apps.

Integrate MX Player on Nova TV

Nova TV works especially well with the external media player MX Player, and can easily be enabled for instant use.
