Bee TV is a widely used streaming application and is currently one of the best Firestick apps for movies and TV shows. Along with an easy-to-use interface, lightweight application, high streaming quality, easy downloading process, this streaming site is compatible with multiple platforms like Android, iOS, Windows/Mac PC/Laptop, and Amazon Fire TV Stick.

Along with a wide variety of movies and TV shows to choose from, BeeTV even has a ‘Special Request’ feature that allows the users to put in a request for a movie or a TV show with the developers that they are unable to find on BeeTV. The app will then fetch the content for them on a priority basis, and the user doesn’t have to go through the hassle of changing applications.

We will discuss a detailed description of its features at the end of the guide. For now, let’s talk about how you can get BeeTV.

To install a third-party app such as BeeTV APK, you need to download an app that allows you to install these third-party applications from the internet onto your device. Among such available applications, we have shortlisted two for you:

  • Downloader
  • ES File explorer

After reading the article, you can choose one of these applications to help you install Bee TV on your Firestick. Both apps are easy to use and install and will make your streaming experience super secure and fun!

How to Get BeeTV on Firestick through ES File Explorer

ES file explorer is an app for Android users that allows them to create, manage, download, and delete files from their devices. It is also widely popular among Firestick users because, just like Downloader, it helps sideload and download third-party applications from the internet to your device.

The only drawback is that ES file explorer is no longer free and will cost you $9.99 per month. On the other hand, the downloader application is free and performs as well as ES file explorer.
