The TeaTV FireStick app shares the same dilemma as third-party streaming apps unavailable from your Amazon App Store. This lack of native support is why you must rely on workarounds to install the TeaTV app on your FireStick.

Workarounds are necessary as, by default, Amazon prohibits the installation of apps derived from sources outside their app store. Although this is a standard security measure, it does limit your options on the FireStick device.

You must enable developer options on your FireStick device to allow apps taken from unknown sources. With this, you remove your FireStick’s limiter, expanding its already massive offering to a greater height with access to all third-party apps.

Doing so will let you install various third-party apps on your FireStick device, not only the TeaTV app. It’s the only way to unlock the full potential of a FireStick device, which is why it’s a hot commodity among the cord-cutting and streaming community.

Step 1: Click your Fire TV remote’s Home button to move to the FireStick home screen.

Step 2: Scroll to the FireStick home screen’s gear icon to open its settings.

Step 3: Select the My Fire TV tile.

Step 4: Go to About.

Step 5: Click your FireStick device’s name until you unlock its developer options.


Note: There should be a text at the bottom that says, “No need, you are already a developer.”
Step 6: Go to the My Fire TV menu and open Developer Options.

Step 7: Open “Apps from Unknown Sources.”


Note: You may see this option as “Install unknown apps,” depending on your FireStick device.
Step 8: Click Turn On to permit unknown apps to install on the FireStick device.


Note: If your FireStick device has the “Install unknown apps” option, you must select which app has permission to
install the TeaTV app. In this case, you should choose either ES File Explorer or Downloader.

Once your FireStick device is allowed to install apps from sources outside the Amazon App Store, you can use apps that can download the TeaTV APK file. Downloader and ES File Explorer File Manager are the best apps for this job.

Using the steps below, you can add them to your FireStick library to download and install the TeaTV app. Both apps should work, so choose whichever one you’re more comfortable using to make the installation process much more manageable.

Downloader is the most popular app among FireStick cord-cutters since it’s how they can install the APK files of their favorite third-party apps. 

Note that this is where TeaTV once again shines. This app is handy because it has a browser function, allowing you to search the internet for your desired APK file.

It means you can download and install apps on your FireStick device even if you don’t have their direct download link. After all, you can search the TeaTV APK file on your Downloader app, like on a PC or smartphone web browser.

Fortunately, you don’t have to do this since our guide will point you in the right direction. Therefore, as shown below, you only need to follow along and install the Downloader app on your FireStick device from the Amazon App Store.

Once you have the Downloader app, you can sideload TeaTV on FireStick using its built-in browser. Installing TeaTV will be a walk in the park after downloading its APK file on your FireStick device.

Step 1: Click your Fire TV remote’s Home button to move to the FireStick home screen.

Step 2: Scroll to the FireStick home screen’s magnifying glass icon to search the Amazon App Store.

Step 3: Scroll down and select the search bar.

Step 4: Type “Downloader” using the FireStick on-screen keyboard and select its full name in the suggestions.

Step 5: Select Downloader on the app search results screen.

Step 6: Tap Download or Get to add Downloader to your FireStick’s app library.

Step 7: Tap Open to launch Downloader.

Step 8: Tap the search bar on the Downloader app home screen.

Step 9: Enter the search code “28907” and tap the Go button.

Step 10: Wait for the download page to complete loading.

Step 11: Enter fullscreen mode with two clicks on your Fire TV remote’s Menu button.

Step 12: Scroll to the category selection section and click Movies & TV.

Step 13: Scroll down and click TeaTV.

Step 14: Scroll down and click Download to get the TeaTV APK file.

Step 15: Wait while your FireStick downloads the TeaTV APK file.

Step 16: Click Install after downloading TeaTV.

Step 17: Click Done after installing TeaTV.

Step 18: Click Delete to remove the TeaTV APK file.


Note: You can click Done to finish the installation, but deleting the APK file frees up extra space on your
FireStick’s internal storage. It’s a wise move since FireStick devices have low storage spaces.
Step 19: Click Delete again for confirmation.

You can also use the ES File Explorer File Manager app to install TeaTV on FireStick. This file manager app has a “Downloader” feature that lets you download files directly from the Internet using a link to its source.

Therefore, you must have a direct download link to the TeaTV APK file to use the ES File Explorer File Manager app for its installation. Don’t worry; this guide includes the direct download link, so you won’t struggle to scour the Internet to find it.

Like the Downloader app, installing TeaTV on your FireStick device using ES File Explorer File Manager is simple after downloading the APK file. With a few ticks and clicks, you can stream TeaTV on your FireStick device to your heart’s content.

However, it’s important to note that the ES File Explorer File Manager app’s availability on the Amazon App Store varies. Whenever it’s unavailable from the app store, you might need to sideload it using Downloader before using it.

Step 1: Click your Fire TV remote’s Home button to move to the FireStick home screen.

Step 2: Scroll to the FireStick home screen’s magnifying glass icon to search the Amazon App Store.

Step 3: Type “ES File Explorer File Manager” using the FireStick on-screen keyboard and select its full name in the suggestions.

Step 4: Select ES File Explorer File Manager on the app search results screen.

Step 5: Tap Download or Get to add ES File Explorer File Manager to your FireStick’s app library.

Step 6: Tap Open to launch ES File Explorer File Manager.

Step 7: Scroll to Tools and click the Downloader option.

Step 8: Click New to open a download path and enter the TeaTV APK link on the Path text field.


Note: You can put anything in the Name text field. Click DOWNLOAD NOW to start downloading the TeaTV APK file.
Step 9: Click Open File and Install after ES File Explorer File Manager downloads the TeaTV APK file.
Step 10: Click Install after downloading TeaTV.

Step 11: Click Done after installing TeaTV.

Step 12: Click Delete to remove the TeaTV APK file.


Note: You can click Done to finish the installation, but deleting the APK file frees up extra space on your
FireStick’s internal storage. It’s a wise move since FireStick devices have low storage spaces.
Step 13: Click Delete again for confirmation.

The issue with availability makes ES File Explorer File Manager less reliable than the Downloader app. Furthermore, ES File Explorer File Manager requires a monthly $9.99 subscription to unlock its “Downloader” function.

It used to be a free feature on the ES File Explorer File Manager, making it a disappointing development if you used the app before. Ultimately, it’s up to you if the app is worth that much, considering it has various other useful features.

TeaTV on FireStick is one of the most simple-looking streaming apps you can find, so using it is very easy. Its interface is user-friendly, and navigating its menu using your Fire TV Stick remote is simple and intuitive.

How the TeaTV app arranges the content is nothing impressive, but the simplicity is why it’s not intimidating to new users. From its home screen alone, you can also start browsing the content you can stream on your FireStick device.

The TeaTV app also groups TV shows and movies separately, which is handy when browsing for specific types of content. It makes browsing the content list easier since you can expect only to see TV shows or movies.

However, they could do much better sorting the content by genre and other metrics. The good thing is that it comes with the standard search function, which is a godsend considering how it speeds up locating your desired TV shows and movies.

Step 1: Click your Fire TV remote’s Home button to move to the FireStick home screen.

Step 2: Scroll to the FireStick home screen’s boxes icon to open its apps and channels list.

Step 3: Open the TeaTV app.

Step 4: Choose whether or not you want personalized ads.

Step 5: Click Accept on the Disclaimer pop-up to continue.

Step 6: Select a language and click OK.

Step 7: Switch tabs to choose between Popular, Top Rated, On the Air, and Airing Today.

Step 8:Scroll to the left control panel and click the lens icon to search for content by name.

Step 9: Click the Movies or TV Shows option to switch the type of content displayed on the TeaTV home screen.

Step 10: Click the content you want to stream.

Step 11: Click Watch Now to stream the selected content.

While not perfect, TeaTV on your FireStick is impressive enough for what it brings. It may not have the same convenience factor and premium features that popular streaming platforms like Netflix or Disney Plus have, as it’s a free third-party app.

Furthermore, you must note that if you stream content on the TeaTV app, it will recommend installing the TPlayer app. It’s a significant downside since you can’t play your selected content because TeaTV doesn’t have a built-in media player.

TPlayer app

IMPORTANT: You must install the TPlayer app to play content from TeaTV. You can’t use any other external media player. 

Indeed, TeaTV doesn’t support other external media players, making TPlayer a necessary companion tool when streaming through this app. Below are the steps for installing TPlayer on your FireStick device so you can use TeaTV to stream content.

Since the TPlayer app is required to play TeaTV streaming links on your FireStick device, you can’t go without installing it. Moreover, you don’t have a choice since TeaTV on FireStick only works with the TPlayer app as its media player.

Without TPlayer, you can’t use TeaTV to stream your favorite on-demand content on your FireStick device. As such, we suggest installing it on your FireStick device immediately after you get the TeaTV app.

To install TPlayer, you must sideload it using Downloader or ES File Explorer File Manager because it’s also a third-party app. However, we suggest using the former since the steps below are only for sideloading TPlayer through the Downloader app.

Step 1: Go to Downloader and tap the search bar on its home screen.

Step 2: Enter the search code “28907” and tap the Go button.

Step 3: Wait for the download page to complete loading.

Step 4: Enter fullscreen mode with two clicks on your Fire TV remote’s Menu button.

Step 5: Scroll to the category selection section and click Media Players.

Step 6: Scroll down and click TPlayer.

Step 7: Scroll down and click Download to get the TPlayer APK file.

Step 8: Click Install after downloading the TPlayer APK file and
click Done once the installation is complete.

Note: We also recommend deleting its APK file after the installation
to open up extra storage space for your FireStick device.

Although the TeaTV FireStick app works without a VPN, we recommend installing one. VPN connections are essential for all streaming services since they can protect your identity and spoof your location to bypass regional locks.

With this, you can access more content on the TeaTV app, especially since they only aggregate streaming links from independent host servers and web pages. Therefore, users can’t monitor if the copyrighted content they stream is licensed.

While you can argue that proving links isn’t illegal, letting your guard down when streaming online is unwise. After all, having a safe and secure streaming experience would be better than being sorry later on.

Step 1: Open Silk Browser.


Note: Follow the previous instructions for installing Downloader from the
Amazon App Store if you don’t have the Silk Browser.
Official Amazon App Store apps follow the same installation steps.
Step 2: Go to your Silk Browser’s address bar.

Step 3: Enter the link to Proton VPN’s free download page to visit it.


Note: For premium subscription plans, you must go to the Proton VPN pricing page instead.
Step 4: Enter a username, password, and email address, and click  Create Account.


Note: Your email address will receive a verification email from Proton VPN,
which you must use to activate your free account.
Step 5: Click your Fire TV remote’s Home button to move to the FireStick home screen.

Step 6: Scroll to the FireStick home screen’s magnifying glass icon to search the Amazon App Store.

Step 7: Hold your Fire TV remote’s Alexa Voice button to start a voice search. 


Note: Tell Alexa to “find the Proton VPN app.” When speaking to the AI Assistant, y
ou must keep holding your Fire TV remote’s Alexa Voice button.
Step 8: Select Proton VPN on the app search results screen and click Get to install it on the FireStick.
Step 9: Open Proton VPN.

Step 10: Click SIGN IN.


Note: Use your newly activated Proton VPN free account.
Step 11: Select a server.


Note: A free account can only access three VPN servers (Netherlands, US, and Japan).
You must use a premium account to connect to more VPN servers.
Step 12: Click OK to connect your FireStick device to the free VPN server.

The TeaTV FireStick app is most notable for its collection of streaming links for popular TV shows and movies. However, streaming live shows is also possible thanks to the Live TV option under its left control panel.

How to Stream Live TV With TeaTV 

Unfortunately, you can only use this live TV feature by adding an M3U Playlist, a text-based computer file containing links to free streaming web pages. Adding the M3U Playlist to your TeaTV automatically loads the available live TV streaming links.

Clicking these live TV streaming links on your TeaTV app will play the selected channel on your FireStick device. You can scour the Internet for free M3U Playlists, but you can find web pages and services that offer them for a price.

We suggest observing due diligence when looking for M3U Playlists for your TeaTV app. Some streaming links only work for specific regions, which is tricky if you can’t access a VPN server in the correct region.
