So you just purchased your first IPTV subscription but you don’t know how to Set up IPTV on Amazon Firestick? If that is the case then you came to the right place as in this article I am going to provide you with a complete installation guide. It is because I was receiving several emails regarding this problem as many people don’t know the proper instructions.
This is the reason why I thought to make a whole guide dedicating this device so anyone who owns this will never have to face problems just like others. However, keep in mind that the steps provided here are quite complicated and that’s why I would recommend keeping reading this article until the very end.
In this guide, I am using a FireTV Stick 4K version but don’t worry this will work on various devices including FireTV Stick Lite, FireTV Cube and Fire Stick 2nd, 3rd Generation. For those who are using an older version then the steps might be different because of the OS version so follow this accordingly.
How To Install & Setup IPTV on Amazon Firestick
In many of my articles, I have mentioned steps to use IPTV on different devices using the IPTV Smarters Pro app. But unfortunately, this app is not available for Firestick yet which is quite sad. There may be others apps available but those are not as good as the Smarters Pro and also contains tons of unwanted advertisements.
But as I am here you don’t need to worry about it anymore because Amazon still let us install application except for their App Store. This process is known as the sideloading or installation of Unknown Sources which is completely secure unless you are downloading the app from trusted websites.
To install app downloaded from other websites it is recommended to enable the Unknown Source option in FireTV Stick as by default this option is disabled. Once that option is enabled we will then download an app named Downloader which is used to sideload 3rd-party applications for free.
Ok so let’s follow these steps to enable Unknown Sources on Firestick:
1 From the Home Screen just scroll down and then select My Fire TV options.
3 From here you need to scroll down and then open Developer Options.
4 At this time just hover to the Apps from Unknown Sources and then press the Select button on the remote.
5 Now a confirmation message will pop on the screen so simply click on the Turn on button.
The installation of Unknown Sources is now enabled which means our first step is completed. Now we are ready to install the Downloader app and get IPTV Smarters Pro for Firestick by following the below steps.
Download IPTV Smarters Pro
As I mentioned earlier that the FireTV doesn’t allow users to install apps from 3rd-party websites but since we enable this feature there is still one thing that is missing that is Downloader app. Basically, Downloader is a free application available for FireTV users that helps users to get apps using direct links.
Other than this the app also has a built-in web-browser feature that is used to search for apps, surf websites and can be used for various stuff. This app is completely free to use and even it is safe because the app was developed by the former developer of Amazon Firestick that left his job.
Ok, so here are the steps that you need to follow to install Downloader and get IPTV Smarters Pro:
Now go back to the Home Screen and select Find available next to Home. At this time you will see various categories and options there just ignore them and select Search
From here a virtual keyboard will appear and then using this type Downloader and select the first result that appears below.
After this, a list of various apps will be shown there so simply select the first app having an Orange Background (check the below screenshot).
Once going there you will see information about the app and from here simply click on the Download (Free to Download) button.
This will start downloading the application automatically and once the app is installed just click on the Open button to launch it.
When the Downloader is launched for the first time you will be asked for permission to access Photos, Files and Media just click Allow as this will help to download files.
After a notification will pop there with a Quick Guide just ignore this by clicking on the Got it button.
At this time hover to the small box there and press the Select button to open Keyboard.
Now using that keyboard just type https://bit.ly/2U1E1P0 and then click on the Go button.
This will start connecting to the server and then the app will start downloading automatically.
Downloading will take only a few minutes and once it is completed an installation window will appear then click on the Install button.
It will take few seconds to install the app and once completes simply click on the Done button.
When you click Done you will see a menu there now just click Delete and when it asks for confirmation again select Delete to remove the file.
Now the IPTV Smarters Pro has been installed on our FireTV Stick which means we are now ready to set up IPTV on Amazon Firestick.
Setup IPTV on Amazon Firestick using Smarters Pro
Once the IPTV Smarters Pro is installed on your device now we just need to log in with our IPTV subscriptions details to make it useable. However, there are two different ways to log into Smarters Pro in which you can either use M3U URL or just use the username and password provided by the service provider.
In my case, I am using the username and password method which is quite easy but you may choose differently as both of them works the same way. I purchase service from Xtreme HD IPTV that is quite fast and has 99.99% server uptime and also has the best customer support.
If you don’t know which service to choose when I write a whole guide on this which you should check here: Top Rated Service Provider Review
Now let’s follow the below steps to setup IPTV on Amazon Firestick:
From the Home Screen just move to the right side and then select the Applications.
Now scroll down and then select the Smarters Pro app icon available at the bottom.
When you launch it for the first time it shows License Agreement so click on the Accept button.
At this time you will be asked to choose the option to login IPTV so in my case I am select log in with Xtream Codes API.
Note: A username, password and the Portal URL will be sent to your email from the provider you get an IPTV subscription just type that information in all fields.
After you filled in all the information now click on the Add User button and then it will be listed in the User List section.
From here List Users just click on the User you created (my case IPTV Trends)
after this IPTV Smarters will start downloading the list of Live Channels, Series and Movies which takes 2 – 4 minutes.
Once the downloading is completed you will see a simple layout with labels like Live TV, Movies, Series etc. You just need to click on any of these categories and then select a preferred channel or Movie to start streaming.
That’s it you have successfully logged in your IPTV into the IPTV Smarters Pro application and now you are ready to stream your favourite Movies and TV shows.
This app will never ask you to log in again so once you complete this guide you will be able to use it until you have a subscription.
This is the simple and one of the easiest ways to set up IPTV on Amazon Firestick by using the IPTV Smarters Pro application. I have provided you with all the necessary steps that you need to follow to get this application. Since the app is not available officially that’s why we used sideloading method to get Smarters Pro.
However, some users have reported buffering issue while using the app so let me clear it that the buffering issue is not caused by the app but it is caused by the service you are using. It is because hundreds of service out there uses the slow servers that cause buffering even if you are using a high-speed internet connection.
To resolve this problem there is only one solution which is buying a service that has fast servers just like Xtreme HD IPTV or IPTV Trends. Both of these services are quite amazing and I am also using them on my device and yet I haven’t faced any sort of buffering or link expiration error.
Furthermore, if you are having any other issue related to the steps then just make sure to check the screenshots attached there. In case you still have some problem then please feel free to write your issue in the comment section below. I will be very glad to hear from you and will try my best to solve that problem.
