This post covers the installation process of TeaTV on FireStick, Fire TV and Fire TV Stick 4K.
TeaTV is a very well known and widely used FireStick app among the streamers. The app comes with a huge media library and serves you tons of movies and shows. The library is also updated regularly with the new content as soon as it is available.
This app has been around for quite some time. It keeps getting regular software updates by the developers. Over time, TeaTV FireStick app has gotten only better both in terms of performance and visual appeal. The effortless design ensures fluidity and user-friendliness. Streaming quality is more than satisfactory. It gets better with Real-Debrid sign in. Trakt integration is also supported.
TeaTV is also the part of our catalog of best apps for FireStick, along with Cinema HD APK, CyberFlix TV and more. It has also been my personal choice ever since I first ran into it several months ago. Give it a try!
Attention FireStick Users: Read before you continue
Governments and ISPs across the world monitor their users' online activities. If found streaming copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick, you could get into serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend you to get a good FireStick VPN and hide your identity so that your movie viewing experience doesn’t take a bad turn.
I use ExpressVPN which is the fastest and most secure VPN in the industry. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon Fire TV Stick. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don't like their service, you can always ask for a refund. ExpressVPN also has a special deal where you can get 3 months free and save 49% on annual plan.
How to Install TeaTV on FireStick
Android operating systems have a security feature that blocks the apps coming from third-party sources. This prevents the automatic installation of malicious applications. Though, there are some secure third-party apps that also get blocked. TeaTV is one such example.
I am telling you all this because even your FireStick has this security setting. And, to install TeaTV on FireStick, we are going to disable it. Here is how it is done:
1- Go to the home screen of your device. There is a menu on the top. From that menu, choose Settings
2- From the list of the items on the next screen, access My Fire TV
3- Now, you want to select Developer Options
4- Apps from unknown sources must be ON in order to install TeaTV. By default, it is OFF. Just click this option and enable it
5- Choose the option Turn on when this warning message is displayed. There is nothing to worry about. TeaTV is a widely used and safe app
We will now start with detailed instructions.
TeaTV on FireStick with Downloader App
FireStick uses Android OS but functions a bit differently. For example, you cannot download the APK files directly from regular browsers like FireFox or Silk for sideloading purposes. You need special tools.
Downloader is widely considered as the finest sideloading app. It is easy to use. It is available for download from the Amazon Store. You can look up in the Amazon Store from the FireStick home screen. There is a search option on the home screen, which you can access by selecting the lens icon in the menu bar in the upper-left corner.
Search for the Downloader app and download it. When that’s been done, follow these steps and install TeaTV on FireStick:
1- Run Downloader. You should see this window with the empty URL field on the right side. Click inside this field
2- You can now type the TeaTV source URL with the help of the on-screen keyboard. This is the URL: https://www.firestickhow.com/tea
Click GO or press the Play/Pause button on your remote
3- Downloader should not take too long to download the APK file of TeaTV app. Just wait until it is done
4- Downloader app will also run the file for you and commence the installation. FireStick will ask for your confirmation before proceeding. You must see this window. The install button will appear in the bottom right when you scroll down a bit
5- Click Install
6- TeaTV will install. Give it a minute.
7- The App installed message confirms that TeaTV on FireStick has been installed. You may choose Open to start the app. But, for now, I am clicking Done and going back to the Downloader app. You will know why in the next step
8- This prompt must be active. Click Delete
I am deleting the TeaTV APK file because it won’t be needed anymore. It is good to remove files that take up unnecessary space on your device
9- Confirm by clicking Delete again
TeaTV has been installed successfully on your FireStick. You may access the app anytime by going to: Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications > TeaTV > Launch Application.
Before you start streaming with your Fire Stick, there is something incredibly important you must know. All your online activities are subject to surveillance and monitoring by your ISP as well as your Government. Streaming licensed or copyrighted videos for free could land you in legal troubles.
The good news is that you can hide all your online and streaming activities from anyone who might be watching and that includes your ISP, Government or any third-party entity. What you simply need is a reliable VPN for your FireStick. With a VPN, you can stream with complete peace of mind as it will encrypt your internet connection and keep it hidden from the prying eyes.
I am not encouraging you to stream content illegally. I do not condone such activities. However, your privacy matters and it must be maintained. What if you do not intend to stream copyrighted content and still end up doing it anyway? You would not want to be penalized for an unintentional mistake.
I have been using ExpressVPN for a long while and confidently recommend it as the best, fastest and safest VPN for FireStick.
Let me show you how to start using a VPN on FireStick under 2-minute.
#1. Subscribe to ExpressVPN: Click HERE to subscribe to ExpressVPN. You can save up to 49% on the annual plan. ExpressVPN also offers a 30-Day full refund guarantee in the event you are not satisfied with it. However, if you intend to use a VPN, I don’t see any reason why you would want to opt out of it.
#2. Look up for ExpressVPN on FireStick: You can download ExpressVPN from Amazon Store. From the home-screen of your FireStick, select the Search function (top-left) and look up for ExpressVPN.
#3. Download & Install ExpressVPN on FireStick: Open the ExpressVPN icon on the next screen. Now click the Download option as you see on this window. Wait for the ExpressVPN app to download and install
#4. Sign into ExpressVPN on FireStick: Launch ExpressVPN on your device and click Sign in on the bottom of the first screen. Enter your login credentials on the following window and click Sign in again
#5. Connect ExpressVPN on FireStick: Click the connection button to connect to VPN. You can connect to the default server ExpressVPN has already chosen for you based on your location or you could pick any other region/server of your choice.
