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 18.104.22.168 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 TVZion on FireStick
FireStick lets you install third-party applications like TVZion. However, you will first need to make one change to the security setting. You need to make sure that the Apps from Unknown Sources is allowed. Here is how you do that:
1- Navigate to Settings > My Fire TV from the FireStick home-screen (the Settings option is on the top)
2- Now you need to open Developer Options
3- On the next window, if you find that Apps from Unknown Sources is OFF, click it and turn it ON
4- You will be warned. But, there is no need to worry. TVZion is one of the safest apps. Of course, you may come back after installing this app and disable the option again
When that’s done, you are ready to install TVZion on FireStick. So, let’s get started.
TVZion FireStick Installation Steps
Installing TVZion on Fire TV is fairly easy. However, you need a sideloading app/tool for this purpose. That’s because Amazon does not let you download any files directly from a browser.
Go ahead and download the app called Downloader. It is the best sideloading utility. Here is how you download it:
– Choose the lens icon on the FireStick home-screen by navigating to the top-left corner
– Type the name of the app (Downloader) using the onscreen keyboard
– You will see the app in the search results once you have entered the first few letters. Click it
– You now just need to follow the on-screen instructions and install Downloader app.
After installing the Downloader app, here are the steps to install TVZion:
1- This is the home-screen of Downloader. Click the text field on the right marked for entering the URL
2- Type in the following URL: https://www.firestickhow.com/tvz
3- It should not take more than a minute to download the TVZion APK on FireStick (depends on your network connection though)
4- When the following screen is displayed, go to the bottom right where it says Next
5- Now click Install on the bottom right
6- Again, the installation shouldn’t take more than a minute. Wait for it
7- Clicking Open will launch TVZion FireStick app instantly. But, there something else we got to do right now. So, click Done
8- Click Delete when you return to the Downloader window
9- Click Delete again
Note: We are deleting the TVZion APK. After the app installation, APK file is not required and takes unnecessary space
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.
Once you have secured FireStick with ExpressVPN, you can start streaming with peace of mind.
