Media streaming apps have always been and will always be popular because of their entertainment value. TeaTV is among the best APKs when you’re looking for worldwide content. It’s a one-stop source for viewers who prefer variety as it features TV shows, documentaries, movies, and sports channels.  

TeaTV is a third-party app with a well-designed interface and easy-to-use features. Previously, Terrarium TV was at the top of the game among entertainment apps. But recently, excellent alternatives became available – with TeaTV being one of the best Terrarium TV alternatives out there. There may be better movie APKs on Firestick, but we recommend TeaTV as it offers an all-in-one solution.

If you’re looking for a step-by-step guide on how to install TeaTV on Firestick, we’ve got you covered. But here’s a caveat when using this app: watching copyrighted content through this app is illegal as it enables you to stream for free. Make it a point to use ExpressVPN to mask your real location and IP address from your service provider. 

Now, we present to you the easiest TeaTV installation methods on Firestick!

How to Get TeaTV on Firestick?

TeaTV is not available on the Amazon app store. Thus, you have to sideload it on your Firestick. One thing to remember is that this device doesn’t allow you to download APKs directly through any browser.

There are two popular apps that we use on Firestick for downloading and sideloading APKs and apps. We’ll show you a detailed tutorial with screenshots in this post. You can use two apps, namely Downloader and ES File Explorer, for sideloading on Firestick. Downloader is free to use, while ES File Explorer costs $9.99/month. We recommend Downloader for sideloading apps on Firestick as it is free and easy to use. Below are the two methods of installing TeaTV:

Downloader allows you to sideload apps and APKs on Firestick. We consider it a must-have for all Firestick users. You can use it for sideloading those apps that aren’t present on the Amazon app store.
