UK Turks Not Working on Firestick/Android TV (May 2024)

UK Turks App


It appears that UK Turks is currently not working. While the app is still available for installation, attempting to view content will only provide the following screen.

UK Turks Not Working

It is unclear why the application is not functioning properly and in the meantime, we suggest using an alternative Free IPTV Service. We will keep you updated with more information as it is made available.

In this guide, we cover UK Turks with installation instructions and more on Firestick, Android TV/Google TV devices and more.

This well-known streaming app has been around for years, however, it has recently been renewed and is working fabulously on nearly any device. Because the app is not available in app stores such as the Amazon App Store or Google Play Store, we must sideload it for use.

Side-loading is oftentimes referred to as jailbreaking for those who use streaming devices such as the Amazon Firestick, Fire TV, and Android TV/Google TV.

The latest version of UK Turks is an all-in-one application that provides options for free Live TV, Movies, TV Shows, Documentaries, and more. There are tons of channel options for live streaming that play in high definition with little to no buffering.

Users will also find VOD Content such as Movies/TV Shows with various link options to choose from. Those with real-debrid can also authorize this service for use within UK Turks which serves up the highest quality link options in HD including 1080p & 4K.

UK Turks does have built-in advertisements that display on the home screen. However, these can easily be removed with the CleanWeb feature which we describe below.

Is UK Turks Safe to Use?

When using unverified streaming apps from 3rd party developers, it is important to know what comes with these applications.

We scan these apps with VirusTotal which is a malware service available on streaming devices and more.

Here is the what VirusTotal found within its scan:

UK Turks Virustotal scan

VirusTotal did find numerous unsafe/malicious files associated with the APK file.

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

With apps such as this that have numerous malicious/suspicious files, it is strongly recommended to use a VPN.

As noted above, most of these channels play with little to no buffering and are available in high definition.

How to Integrate Real-Debrid

Because UK Turks is an all-encompassing streaming app, there are also options for VOD Content such as Movies and TV Shows.

As with other popular APKs, UK Turks works best when integrated with a premium resolving service such as real-debrid.

NOTE: Currently, TV Show options do not work very well even with Real-Debrid integrated. We suggest using an alternative app for viewing Series until this is fixed.

  • From the home screen of the app, select the Settings icon.

choose settings

  • Choose Real-Debrid: Login

select real-debrid

  • You are then provided with an authorization code. Visit and enter the code you are given.

Real debrid authorization code

  • Real-Debrid success message will now appear.

Remove Ads on UK Turks

After installing the app, you will likely notice the banner ads that display on the home screen of UK Turks.

Luckily, these can easily be removed with the CleanWeb feature from Surfshark VPN. You can easily enable this within the Settings of the Surfhsark Application.

enable cleanweb within the surfshark app

After turning this on and connecting your preferred VPN Server, these ads will no longer appear.

Unfortunately, there are also video ads that play after closing out of a Movie, TV Show, or other content selection.

These are difficult to remove unless you integrate an external video player which we have more details on below.

External Video Player

Within the Settings of UK Turks are various options to add and use an external video player of your choice. This includes VLC Player, MX Player Free, & MX Player Pro.

External Video Player Options

While using an external video player is usually a great way to reduce buffering, ads, and more, it seems that integration within UK Turks does not work properly.

Even though you are provided with the options listed above, these cannot be selected for use.

After choosing MX Player or VLC Player, you are prompted to install via the Amazon App Store. Even if you click Continue, the installation will not work.

Use of an external video player is currently not available

We hope to see this change in the future as using an external video player such as MX Player Pro is a fabulous way to eliminate ads on streaming apps such as this!

Details & Features

Although this application has been around for many years, it has recently been restored and there are still some items that need work.

However, the Live TV Feature works extremely well after authorizing this service for use. Users will have tons of channel options to choose from including Premium Channels that we don’t see with other Free IPTV Services.

Premium Live TV

Currently, categories available within the application include:

  • Live TV
  • TV Shows
  • Cartoons
  • Concerts
  • Movies
  • Documentaries
  • Standup
  • Radio
  • Favourites

Nearly all categories work fairly well with various subcategories/genres to choose from within each.

Users will also likely notice an advertisement for UK Turks Platinum at the top of the application.

UK Turks Paid IPTV

This seems to be a paid IPTV Service that is run by the developers of the app.

Within settings are various options for Adult Content, Sort Lists, FAQs, Clear Cache, Privacy Policy, Terms/Conditions, and more.

We suggest testing the app to see all of the features it provides!

Is UK Turks APK Legal?

  3. Avatar for fast fast says:

    got it to load on my firestick but no luck on onn box or generic android.

  4. did you try the link i posted

  5. I download these apps to my PC and then install them with ADBlink. Windows 11 REALLY does not like the UKturks android app - says it’s riddled with viruses and trojans. I was able to force load it onto my experimental 'stick and got it to work but I wonder about that malware Windows picked up???

  6. cant really comment on that i only loaded on firestick seems ok so far

  7. Avatar for Remy Remy says:

    OK, so I get this all loaded up, install RD and play with it during the day. i decided to watch a movie and it’s GONE? Was on my launcher earlier and now I can’t find it. Just weird tried 2 different places and gave ne the same message about it being fake. Even a legit download fron Filesync. Downloads but no where to ne found

  8. Have you looked in the firestick “Settings” > “Applications” menu?

  9. Avatar for Remy Remy says:

    I’ve done all the permissions and everything. The program states it’s downloaded but no where to be found. I don’t use a FS so I know the install is basically the same. Strange that it says it’s downloaded but dosen’t show up anywhere, also my Google is supposedly downloaded but I can’t find. Not sure if it might be a problem with my Wolf launcher

  10. I’ve download the uk turk app on my firecube with no problems however when I click on Movies or the other Icons nothing loads up it just turns. I used this app a lot of time then one day it would not load up anymore. Is it possible that it no longer works in Canada. thx

  11. Avatar for Raknam Raknam says:

    Hi just checked out the UK Young Turks app, wow a lot of shows, working smoothly so far. Thanks to Troypoint.

  12. Avatar for Flt505 Flt505 says:

    IF you try that pin code stuff for Live tv
    Does the token only last 4 hours??

  13. Avatar for raddnt raddnt says:

    I downloaded Uk Turks. It worked great including live TV. I watched for a few hours searching the app and getting familiar with it. I love it. I switched to Kodi for a while. Went back to Uk Turks and Live TV does not work (CCTV and Turk tv works). All the other tabs, comics, documentaries, movies etc work. I have a VPN and it was on.
    Is there something I need to do or is it the app itself?
    Uk Turks is also updated.
    ( I have a Nvidia Shield Pro)

  14. did you get token for live tv

  15. Avatar for Remy Remy says:

    All I get is version with lots of ads. Any other places>|?

  16. I tried the input code 4 times from the website. Nothing happened. I was excited for a new UK Turks App.

    P.S. I’ve loaded two movies that work, so I am stumped as to what all the input code ID was all about. I have Real Debrid, so I was ready to see what I had. Of course, I’m running Surfshark VPN for protection.

  17. i use earlier version modded so no adds do a google search for one

  18. Avatar for Remy Remy says:

    No ads are popping up

  19. They will

  20. I have run into similar problems that other users have reported. Namely, that I downloaded the app and installed it following Troy’s instructions and it worked perfectly on the day that he posted the information. As of today, however, Sunday February 4th, the live TV option no longer works. I did get the PIN code and I got real debrid hooked up and as I said it worked perfectly at first. I was even able to choose an external player for movies and that worked beautifully. Also using surfshark. So it looks like the live TV option no longer works, which for me is a deal-breaker because I stream movies from other better sources than UK Turks.

  21. Avatar for Remy Remy says:

    I downloaded it at first and it had no ads. However UKTurks suddenly disappeared and I had to reinstall. It works OK now and since I turned on my CleanWeb in SS we’ll see if they pop up. I still use Stremio as my primary but this really seems towork well

  22. Me again. Based on one of the users comments above I reinstalled UK Turks and when I went to the site for the pin authorization code it does say that the code is only valid for 3 hours. And of course that only applies to the live TV features of this app. Has anyone found a permanent pin authorization code that they would like to share?

  23. dont think there is one

  24. Avatar for raddnt raddnt says:

    Yes I did. Is it time sensitive? Tried all day today but still can’t get live TV. All else works.

  25. Avatar for raddnt raddnt says:

    Same here!!

  26. Sorry, Raddnt, but yes, the PIN authorization code for Live TV only lasts for three hours. I suspect that signing up for the premium Service provides a PIN which lasts as long as your subscription does. :slightly_frowning_face:

  27. Avatar for raddnt raddnt says:

    Thanks for clearing this up. A little deceiving on their advertising. Free is not free. Too good to be true. I’m in Ecuador for a couple months and it would have been nice to see home, US, networks. Not worth their fee to me.
    Any other apps that ARE free for live TV?

  28. Sorry, no free live TV apps that I know of. IPTV services are available, but charge for their services, which is understandable, but are still much more affordable than any cable or satellite option. You can search Troypoint for a list of recommended IPTV providers.

  29. Avatar for Miki Miki says:

    There are many free live TV apps out there. Just search for live TV. Not to mention lots of free M3U and M3U8 playlists that can be added to TiViMate. We’ve discussed this a lot over the years. Play with the search and you’ll be surprised.

  30. Avatar for raddnt raddnt says:

    Try Mad Titans. Worked for me for live TV.

  31. Thanks, raddnt, I tried it and it does have quite a lot of variety to choose from. I never looked at it before cuz I thought it was only sports.

  32. Avatar for raddnt raddnt says:

    I thought the same. After being disappointed with UK Turks I tried this. It still works. Being in Ecuador for another month, it’s nice to see some faces from “home”.

  33. After having issue with UK Turks v1.1.1 ranging from windows security blocking it to problem with a 2nd gen Firestick 4k Max, I downloaded v1.1.2 today from (thanks Pirate77) and everything is working fine now!

  34. Installed UK Turks apk on my firestick in the hopes of having as decent free live (broadcast/network) TV streaming option. Appeared to work great… until the next day. You have to renew the token on a daily basis!!!

    So, uninstall and keep looking!

  35. Free and Good is hard to find. When you do find it (think USTV Go) the internet police move quickly to shut it down.

  36. Too true!

  37. Just downloaded latest version of uk Turks 1.1.3 now in settings can’t change player.any help would be great.thanks

  38. in settings go to player settings then change to the players you have loaded thats in version 1.1.2 not sure about your version i didnt update mine i have add free version

  39. From the original Troypoint installation post:

    “While using an external video player is usually a great way to reduce buffering, ads, and more, it seems that integration within UK Turks does not work properly.”
    “Even though you are provided with the options listed above, these cannot be selected for use.”
    “After choosing MX Player or VLC Player, you are prompted to install via the Amazon App Store. Even if you click Continue, the installation will not work”.

  40. yes thats correct just checked it reverts back to turks player ty :+1:

  41. Greetings,

    went to the turk official website via downloader and when it tries to install Google Protector blocks it saying this app is fake and harmful … this is on my shield.

    any clue has to why ?


  42. turn off google play protect

  43. Yeah I’m wondering why other apps don’t give me that warning when I install them. Was just caution on this app that it main contain malware

  44. Anybody else having problems with uk Turks not working

  45. same here in uk

  46. Avatar for Foee Foee says:

    Anyone know what’s going on with UK TURKS

  47. Hetzner has become unreliable seems they have turned on third party providers because all the third party apps and services using their software are having serious issues right now so everyone is pivoting for another software provider
