Apollo Group TV: Introduction

Apollo Group TV is one of the best IPTV services that’s easy to install and easy to use. You can stream high-quality content straight to your phone, Android TV Box, or Amazon Firestick whenever you want. With different services available out there – is Apollo TV worth installing?

Well, the important question to ask when you’re searching for an IPTV service is, what do you want to get?

Why Should I Use Apollo Group TV IPTV?

We all know what an average IPTV service can offer – live channels, a VOD library that’s kept up-to-date so you can stream all the best content. So what makes Apollo IPTV better?

Connection With Any Android Device

Because all you need is an IPTV player like IPTV Smarters and a subscription to use Apollo TV, you can install it on any Android device.

This means you can stream the news, live TV shows, and movies whether you are sitting in front of your Fire TV or using your mobile phone.

Perfect For Streaming On The Go

Because it’s available for Android phones and tablets, Apollo Group TV is one of the best streaming apps for people who have a long commute.

Simple Pricing Plans

With 4 clear-cut pricing plans available, Apollo doesn’t try to lock you into long-term contracts for costs that are over the odds.

When you sign up for a plan with Apollo, your subscription will only last as long as you want. No automatic renewing, no long-term commitment.

Apollo Group TV Pricing

Because Apollo’s pricing is straightforward, it’s difficult to get locked into a bad deal.

The Apollo IPTV pricing goes like this:Screenshot of Apollo Group TV’s pricing plans for 30, 90 and 180 days and 1 year

Unlike many IPTV services, Apollo offers flexible pricing to help people sample the product before they sign up fully.

  • 30 days for $24.99
  • 90 days for $51.99
  • 180 days for $89.99
  • 365 days for $159.99

All plans come with five device connections, all of Apollo’s categories, and up to 5,000 advert-free movies and TV shows. The only thing that changes is the length of your subscription.

Best of all, Apollo TV doesn’t automatically renew the service if your subscription is coming to an end.

Apollo Group TV Free Trial

If you’re still not sure about signing up with Apollo IPTV, you can first sign up for a 10-day free trial.

This lets you access over 1,000 live channels and all movies, TV shows, and sports through the VOD library.

Signing Up for Apollo Group TV IPTV Service

This is a key section because the app actually comes from the Apollo team. Users need to get in touch if they want to download the IPTV app onto their Amazon Fire TV Stick.

Where Do I Sign Up?

Navigate to apollogroup.tv:Apollo Group homepage with the Trial button highlighted

Click on the Start trial button (pictured above) and fill in your details.Apollo Group trial account graphic

When you’ve filled out the form, the Apollo team will send an email so you can register your account.Apollo Group registration message indicating a user has registered successfully and will get an email with their password

Before We Get Started…

First, you need to set up your Firestick so that it doesn’t stop you from installing third-party apps. By default, Firesticks are set to block harmful applications before they are installed.

More importantly, you want to stop Bezos peeking into what you’re up to. If Amazon sees that you’re using your Firestick to access unlicensed material, they’ll shut that down.

Turn Off The Snooping Settings

Find Preferences

Navigate to the Amazon Firestick menu and then find Preferences.Amazon Firestick Settings menu with Preferences highlighted

Click on it to find the Privacy Settings.

Choose Privacy Settings

About halfway down the menu, you will see Privacy Settings.The Amazon Firestick Preferences menu with Privacy Settings highlighted

Click it to see how Amazon has been collecting your data.

Stop Amazon From Snooping

If you’re security conscious, this is a very important step. We want to turn off:

  • Device Usage Data
  • Collect App Usage Data

Once these aren’t turned off, Amazon will no longer block you from using Apollo Group IPTV.Privacy Settings menu, showing Device Usage Data and Collect App Usage Data

Allowing Third-Party Apps

Because Apollo IPTV isn’t available through the Amazon App Store, it’s considered a third-party app from an unknown source. Sounds suspicious, right?

Don’t worry about it – all that means is that Amazon doesn’t sign off that it is virus-free. Thankfully, we know that the Apollo Group TV website is free of viruses, so it’s all good.

Find My Fire TV

Navigate to the Firestick menu and go to My Fire TV.Amazon Firestick Settings menu with My Fire TV highlighted

Click here to find the Developer Options.

Go to Developer Options

First things first – don’t worry about the word developer here. We’re just allowing certain settings that the Firestick doesn’t usually allow.

Developer options should be near the top of your Firestick My Fire TV menu.Developer options highlighted in the My Fire TV menu, find Developer options.

Click on it, and we’re almost done.

Allow to Install Unknown Apps

You’ll see two options here, but you’d only want to select Install unknown apps. Click to open the menu, and then you will have to do one of two things:Install unknown apps highlighted > Select Install unknown apps

  • If you are using a new Firestick, click OK – this allows all unknown apps
  • If you are using an old Firestick, you may have to individually select each app that is allowed to install unknown applications. 

Then we’re done – we can move on to installing Apollo Group TV.

How To Install Apollo Group TV on Firestick?

Actually getting Apollo IPTV on your Firestick takes a little bit of patience. This is because you can’t just install Apollo and be done with it – you need an IPTV Player app. So far, we’ve had the best experience using IPTV Smarters, so you’ll find out how to install that and set up Apollo TV on your device through that app.

Install IPTV Smarters Player

We need a way to get IPTV Smarters onto the Fire TV Stick, so we’re going to use the Downloader app (available through the Amazon App Store).

Install Downloader

First, head to Find and then Search.

You need to search for Downloader. The auto-complete list should pop up for you, saving you from typing the whole thing.Amazon Firestick search function with Downloader highlighted

Then find the Downloader app and add it to your app collection.The Downloader app highlighted, here’s the app you want.

Search for IPTV Smarters

Now open the Downloader app and type in this URL: https://vpnch.ec/iptv-smarter

The Downloader search function with IPTV Smarters address in the search box

When you’ve typed it in, click Go, and the APK download should automatically begin.Download status screen for the Downloader app

Wait for this to finish, and the APK will be on your system.

Install the IPTV Smarters App

If everything has gone well, your Firestick should automatically open the install dialogue box for IPTV Smarters.Firestick Installation dialogue box

Install and away we go.

You should now be able to see this when you open the IPTV Smarters app.IPTV Smarters configuration screen

Now let’s set up Apollo Group TV on IPTV Smarters.

Download Apollo Group TV

You will have received a URL from the team Apollo in an email. You’ll need to add that URL as an M3U link in Apollo IPTV to get all the best TV shows and movies on the Firestick.

Add the M3U

Taking the URL from your email, open up Load your Playlist or File/URL. This is the top left button on the IPTV Smarters home screen.IPTV Smarters home screen

And you should see a menu like this. Click down to the Playlist Type section and then click the M3U URL button.IPTV Smarters Load Your Playlist Menu with M3U URL highlighted

Then all you have to do is type in the URL you received from the Apollo Group team.

Here’s what it looked like when we did it, but you won’t be getting our link!IPTV Smarters Load Your Playlist Menu with URL entered

Then click Add User, and you should be redirected to this screen.IPTV Smarters List Users screen

How To Use Apollo Group TV with IPTV Smarters Player?

Using Apollo IPTV with IPTV Smarters is really easy – you can’t get lost at all.

Live TV

If you want to watch something live, just click on the big button on the main menu.

This gives you a drop-down menu of all the different nations on your version of Apollo IPTV, including a breakdown of all the channels you can browse within that country.Apollo Group TV live TV menu

For example, we searched Canada for both regional and national TV channels.

You can click down on the left-hand dropdown menu to access different countries or regions and browse through the respective channels that are available through Apollo IPTV.

Live TV with the EPG

If you prefer a different layout, you can access the EPG from the main menu too. It looks like this:Live TV with EPG button highlighted

Click on the Live With EPG button, and you will see this screen:Live with EPG menu

This is pretty much the same as the Live TV menu, but it’s set out more nicely and (as you can see with the Documentary option) VOD as well. Makes it easier than searching through every menu for both live and recorded TV.

Movies and TV Shows

If you only want to watch movies or TV shows, you can click either the Movies or Series button. This will give you access to over 5,000 different shows, all on demand.Movies and Series buttons on IPTV Smarters

Most Popular Apollo Group TV IPTV Channels

Since there are so many channels, here are a few ideas to get you started.

Sports EPL UEFA

If you’re into soccer (football), the Sports EPL UEFA channels deliver all the best games straight to your Firestick. These channels only work when a match is being played, so keep an eye out for fixtures and stream them through Apollo IPTV.

Sports ESPN+

For American sports and worldwide coverage of the biggest sports leagues, ESPN+ offers everything from golf news to live Olympic events. Most of these channels are in English, and there’s plenty of variety to keep you entertained.

Is Apollo Group TV Legal?

Although it’s not illegal to install Apollo IPTV on your Amazon Firestick or other Android devices, it is illegal in some countries to access copyrighted content that you haven’t paid for. The fact that you can’t find this app on the Amazon App Store or Google Play Store probably tells you all you need to know.

Because some of the content you could access through Apollo isn’t licensed to be shown in your area, you risk running into legal trouble. That’s why you should obfuscate your identity in whatever you can when using an IPTV service like Apollo.

How to Use Apollo Group TV on Firestick Safely?

To stream safely on your Amazon Firestick, use a VPN service like ExpressVPN to hide your browsing habits from your internet service provider.

This means that you can browse safely, knowing that you can’t be seen as you stream.

Sign Up With ExpressVPN

Firstly, sign up for ExpressVPN on your phone, tablet, or computer. Find www.expressvpn.com and click on the Get ExpressVPN button right in the middle.ExpressVPN.com with the Get ExpressVPN button highlighted> Go to ExpressVPN.com and sign up.
