Preface

Flix IPTV is a must-have IPTV service for every Amazon Firestick. For a one-time fee, it lets you enjoy live shows, movies, and TV series that the likes of Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, HBO Max, and various other streaming services charge monthly subscription fees for. 

However, despite this massive benefit (Netflix’s lowest pricing tier costs slightly less than Flix IPTV’s all-time fee), not many people know about this IPTV player. You cannot blame them as Flix IPTV isn’t as popular as other streaming services named above.

That changes right here. In this article, we’re going to give you a complete overview of what Flix IPTV is all about. We’ll also provide you with a step-by-step guide using which you can install Flix IPTV on your Amazon Fire TV Stick/Firestick 4K/Firestick Lite. Read on to know more.

Flix TV Pricing

Flix IPTV charges a one-time ($9) fee per device. This means that if you want to use it on four devices, you’ll have to pay a one-time fee of $36. If you want to check out its features before paying the fee, you can take advantage of the 7-day free trial period.

Is Flix IPTV Legal?

Flix IPTV is legal to download and use almost everywhere in the world. We’re yet to see any information of any government banning this IPTV provider. This shouldn’t come as a surprise given that it isn’t with the IPTV that governments and content creators typically have issues with.

Instead, it’s the content that users watch on IPTV players and services that might get them into legal trouble, especially if the content is copyrighted. Some governments go as far as to fine 1,000 euros for first-time violators of copyright laws, excluding the lawyer’s fees.

Therefore, if you want to stay on the right side of the law while using Flix IPTV, the best way is not to watch copyrighted content. Doing that is easier said than done, however, since almost all of the best movies, TV series, and dramas are protected by copyright laws. 

Any other solution, then, using which you can watch your favorite content without breaking the law? Luckily for you, there’s one option: a reliable virtual private network or VPN (we recommend ExpressVPN). Here’s why we’re so sure.

How ExpressVPN Keeps You Safe?

ExpressVPN is a must-have if you want to use Flix IPTV in a care-free manner. It shields your IP address by generating a random and non-traceable IP address, thereby letting you browse incognito, irrespective of your location. 

Hiding your IP address is crucial because the majority of the free streaming applications and premium IPTV services are housed on insecure servers. So, there’s always a chance of your IP address being tracked if you didn’t hide it using a VPN. 

Using Flix IPTV on Firestick

Given that Flix IPTV doesn’t have any content of its own, you’d have to connect other IPTV services with your login credentials to this IPTV player. Only then you’d be able to watch your favorite pieces of content on Flix IPTV.
