A to Z Guide:

Live Net TV is one of the most popular jailbroken Firestick apps around. With this app, you can stream live TV from hundreds of networks from all over the world—in dozens of languages too! 

The Amazon Firestick is a superb all-around choice for anyone who wants to watch streaming or live content on their TV. It has a low price and the capability to add third-party applications. And with applications like Live Net TV, Firestick users all over are cord-cutting from expensive satellite and cable companies. 

If installing third-party applications outside of Amazon’s directory isn’t in your wheelhouse, that’s okay! You can start with our guide on jailbreaking a Firestick, or you can just read on, and we’ll take you through the process of installing Live Net TV step-by-step with screenshots.

We’ll also go over how to view content safely through the Live Net TV Firestick app, so others can’t infringe on your digital privacy or personal information. Lastly, we’ll teach you how to access Live Net TV once it’s installed and go over updating the app.

How to Install Live Net TV on Firestick?

We’ve broken up the installation process for Live Net TV on Firestick into three sections because there are two critical things you need to do before your Firestick allows you to install a third-party application.

  • You’ll need an additional application called ‘Downloader’ to install Live Net TV.
  •  You must change your Firestick TV settings to enable the installation of third-party apps.

Is Live Net TV Legal and Safe to Use?

Safety Issues

Safety with third-party applications on your Firestick is relative to each user. Obviously, Live Net TV isn’t on the Amazon applications list, so there is no control from the Amazon security teams regarding what you’ve downloaded via the ‘Downloader’ app.

As a third-party app user, it’s on you to protect your privacy and guard your Firestick against malicious software. But it’s good to use a combination of virus protection and VPN before downloading or viewing live TV via Live Net TV. This is the only way to protect your personal information from your internet service provider—ISP—and potential hackers.

Legality Issues

The channels on Live Net TV Firestick app are not streaming legally. The application uses links that source live content streaming from pirate sites. Streaming copyrighted content without payment is illegal nearly everywhere in the world.

If you don’t use a VPN, you could be caught and subject to legal action for streaming this content. It’s important to hide your IP address from your ISP with a quality VPN service like ExpressVPN.

Installing ExpressVPN for Online Safety While Using Live Net TV

Corporations, hackers, and ISPs love tracking online activity for privacy invasion and other sometimes nefarious purposes. We wrote an article on how to choose the best VPNs in another post. You can also find several options out there.

However, if you want to bypass the link and jump to the top, then ExpressVPN is the best choice to make. It offers 24/7 service, has an intuitive interface, comes with free updates, and is easy to install—as you’ll see.

ExpressVPN offers servers in over 90 countries and 160 locations to give you a reliable IP anywhere you need. They use the best encryption technology to keep information protected and provide the fastest loading speed. Plus, no matter what OS you run—Windows, Linux, macOS, Firestick, Android, or iOS—ExpressVPN works. You can also install it directly on your router.

With ExpressVPN, you’ll keep your personal information and network safe while you browse on any device. Using your Firestick—or any device—without a VPN opens your network to attacks and potential theft. Do what professionals do and keep your IP to yourself.

Before accessing content through Live Net TV on Firestick, you can use a free 30-day trial. Visit ExpressVPN to learn more.

To stay safe with ExpressVPN while using Live Net TV, follow these steps:

How to Access Live Net TV Once You’ve Installed It?

After installation, many users are unsure how to access the Live Net TV. Below is a brief overview of how to access the app and how to get started.

Accessing Live Net TV: Firestick User Fundamentals

When you return to your home screen after installing Live Net TV, it may not appear at the front of your apps list. That just means you have more apps installed than the home screen can show—the interface limits it to six. 

To access the app, select the ‘Apps’ button to open your full list of apps and channels. You can also hold down the ‘Home’ button on your remote, wait for the menu to appear, and select the ‘Apps’ icon.The Apps and Channels icon on Firestick- three boxes and a plus sign located on the far right of the Firestick home screenScreenshot of apps galary on Firestick Note: Based on the update and/or your Firestick software version, the Live Net TV logo may not appear. Instead, Amazon greys it out and puts an Apps icon (three squares and a plus sign) in its place. But if the logo appears, it looks like this:Live Net TV logo

Freshly downloaded applications appear at the bottom of the list. To access, scroll down to the bottom row and click on the Live Net TV icon.Amazon Firestick’s Apps & Channels tile menu showing newly installed apps

Many people like to use Live Net TV on the regular. If that’s the case, you can put the icon at the front of your apps list, so it appears on your home screen. Just highlight the Live Net TV icon and hit the ‘Menu’ button on your remote—the three lines. Then, select ‘Move to front’ from the menu on the right to move it instantly to the top row.Amazon Firestick’s Apps & Channels tile menu Move to front

If you don’t want it as the first app, or maybe on the second row, hit the ‘Menu’ button again. Then, use your remote to place it wherever you desire.The Move option on Amazon Firestick’s Apps & Channels menu

You can click on the app in your ‘Apps’ list or from the home screen to access Live Net TV.Firestick’s home screen Apps list with greyed-out app icon of Live Net TV app highlighted

A disclaimer will appear when you first open the app, letting you know the developers share your IP. This is another example of why using a VPN service like ExpressVPN before running Live Net TV is essential.Live Net TV’s disclaimer message with the Continue button highlighted

Also, a pop-up window may let you know that there’s a new update available. If that’s the case, install this new version, as it will make the app run better. 

Otherwise, the screenshot below is the Live Net TV home screen as it appears on Firestick. There are a variety of live TV category tabs at the top of the screen. When clicked, the associated channels will display below on the interface. There are over 20 categories with choices like the following:

  • Entertainment
  • Kids
  • News
  • Sports
  • Documentaries
  • Cooking

Live Net TV home screenUnfortunately, most of the layout has the genres, countries, and languages placed under the same tab. You’ll need to scroll down to get to the language you want. But you’ll find hundreds of channels in each of the categories in a wide variety of languages. 

To view a channel, simply highlight, click, and a menu with multiple links should appear. Live Net TV pop-up showing two links as options for a selected channel

Select any link you want. But the first time you use Live Net TV, another window will appear asking you to select a compatible player you’d like to use to view your content. Live Net TV pop-up for choosing a media player

If you already have a listed player installed, just click ‘Always,’ and you won’t see this window again. Otherwise, we recommend installing MX Player directly from Amazon. Live Net TV media player pop-up with MX Player selected and ‘ALWAYS’ highlighted

When you select ‘Always,’ another window will appear that will redirect you to the Amazon app store so you can download it. Just click ‘Install’ and follow the instructions to download the player then return to Live Net TV. 

If you want to find a specific channel, click the ‘Search’ icon on the top right—the magnifying glass. Live Net TV home screen with icon for Search being highlighted

Next to the ‘Search’ option is the Video-on-Demand icon—the film clapboard. While the Live Net TV app has VOD capabilities, it’s a limited selection of Indian, Pakistani, and Punjabi movies. If you’re interested, check it out! Otherwise, you’ll probably only use this app for IPTV, but they could add more content in the future.Live Net TV home screen with the movie clapper icon highlighted

Updating Live Net TV APK for Firestick

Live Net TV may sometimes stop working or ask for a new update to run. In that situation, you won’t be able to use the app until you download and install the latest version. 

If you see an update when you open the app, click the ‘Update’ button, and it should auto-start the process. If that still doesn’t work, uninstall the app, and use the guide above to reinstall. Nonetheless, the link in this guide is always updated with the latest version of Live Net TV.

Summary

And with that, you now have the tools you need to stream content on Live Net TV. This application is one of the top live TV apps available and offers content from all around the globe. But remember, no matter where you are, always use a reliable VPN before streaming anything on your Live Net TV Firestick app.
