How to Sideload and Use TSN Sports on Firestick

This article will show you how to download, install, and use one TSN – one of the most popular sports streaming services on your Amazon Firestick. You can also install the TSN sports app on other Amazon Fire TV devices, including Firestick Lite, Firestick 4K, and Fire TV Cube. 

TSN is amongst the most popular sports streaming apps, especially if you love Canadian sports. TSN subscribers can stream TSN1, TSN2, TSN3, TSN4, and TSN5, plus bonus coverage. These add to the on-demand TV shows, broadcasts, and access to premium content with TSN Direct. So what are we waiting for? Let’s install TSN on Firestick. 

Before getting into a detailed guide of how you can download, install and use the TSN app to watch sports on Firestick, let’s address the elephant in the room.

Is it safe and legal to use the TSN app on Firestick?

Yes, the TSN app is both safe and legal. 

Bell Media Inc., one of Canada’s leading content creation companies, has created the official TSN app for all sports lovers. It is one of the most popular sports apps in Canada and has thousands of users worldwide. 

Unfortunately, the Amazon App Store doesn’t have the official TSN app. In such a case, we will sideload the APK using a third-party application. You can ensure the safety of an APK by using the Kaspersky web address analysis tool to scan the URL. 

Nevertheless, TSN is completely legal. It is available on Google Play Store, Apple Store. You can also get it on Amazon Fire TV Stick using two additional apps and a few extra steps.

How to Install and Use TSN on Firestick

Alright, let’s get down to business. First things first, you won’t find the official TSN app on the Amazon app store. The easiest and fastest way to use the TSN app on Firestick is to sideload it. 

In other words, before installing the app, we will first ensure that we have a third-party app that can load the APK file for the TSN app. We’ll also install Rotate Screen Orientation for better functionality (you guessed it right, it’s a screen-rotating app like the name says). 

The installation has four parts: 

  1. Install Downloader;
  2. Download and install the TSN app;
  3. Launch Rotate Screen Orientation;
  4. Tips on how to use the TSN app on Firestick. 

Let’s begin!

Part 1: Steps to sideload TSN app using the Downloader

Like we mentioned earlier, we will first download a third-party app and then launch TSN on Firestick. We’re using the Downloader app to launch the TSN.
