What Is Kshaw Player?
Kshaw is an IPTV media player. The app does not host any content. Instead, you integrate it with other apps for video playback.
Some IPTV services have an in-built media player, but some depend on third-party IPTV players. Kshaw Player is one of the popular third-party media players compatible with most IPTV services. Moreover, it’s the official IPTV player for OLA TV, an IPTV service provider for free live TV.
Let’s explore Kshaw Player further before getting into the installation process.
Attention FireStick Users: Read before you continue
Your government and ISP are probably monitoring your streaming activities using your IP address 126.96.36.199 (exposed to all). You may get into serious legal trouble for streaming copyrighted videos on FireStick.
I strongly recommend getting a trusted VPN for FireStick to hide your IP address and protect your online identity.

Is Kshaw Player Safe?
Kshaw Player is unavailable on the Amazon App Store, which raises a safety concern. However, I haven’t experienced anything suspicious with the player, and everything seems streamlined. Moreover, I scanned the APK URL on VirusTotal. The antivirus shows that out of more than 5 dozen vendors, only 1 marked it malicious.
Is Kshaw Player Legal?
Kshaw Player lets you integrate streaming links from an IPTV provider to play on your FireStick. Unfortunately, Firestickhow.com cannot verify the legality of the IPTV providers because it depends on various factors, including copyrights and licenses, content sources, and your location.
The safest way to stream content on Kshaw Player is by using a VPN. I recommend ExpressVPN for its stability, security, and speed.

Overview of Kshaw Player
If you intend to use the IPTV player regularly, I suggest creating a shortcut on the FireStick home screen. A home screen shortcut gives you quick access to the app, saving the time you’d have to navigate Your Apps and Channels to find it. Check out our guide on creating home screen shortcuts for apps on FireStick.
Kshaw Player is a great IPTV player with an easy-to-navigate user interface. When you launch the app, you’ll need to add the following details as provided by your IPTV service provider:
- Server name
- Mac address
- Your username and password
Kshaw Player does not have its content. Instead, you need an active IPTV subscription for the app to work. Its primary purpose is to integrate your streams and show them on your device. Therefore, you need to customize the settings for an excellent display and streaming experience.
Significant parameters include EPG/FAV dialog settings and parental controls to make the content suitable for the whole family. For instance, if you turn on the Family Use option, adult channels will be hidden so that only kid-friendly streams appear when you search for content.
The EPG/FAV dialog displays the available TV channels and other video-on-demand (VOD) content. As you stream content over time, channels that you watch regularly will update under Favorites. Other subcategories under Settings include language preference, consent, and terms and conditions.
Kshaw Player is the mandatory IPTV player for OLA TV, an IPTV service that offers free TV channels for sports, news, and more. It is also compatible with other IPTV services, which makes it a worthy addition to IPTV players on your FireStick.
