Foreword: Viva TV APK

This article will show you how to install the Viva TV APK on Amazon Firestick devices and 4K TV. You can follow almost the same process to install the Viva TV APK on other Android TV Boxes and Streaming devices.

Since the Viva TV APK is not available on the official Amazon App Store or Google App Store, some people wonder whether it is legal to use. The unavailability of certain apps in app stores is often a warning sign about the credibility of an app.

We have run a background check on Viva TV APK and have found it to be a safe app that you can install and use on your streaming devices.

The Viva TV APK is a popular streaming app that gives you access to unlimited movies and TV Shows and can be installed on almost every Android streaming device. You will also be able to find many quality links on Viva TV APK.

For this tutorial, we will install Viva TV APK on Amazon Firestick 4K. You can follow similar steps on any Amazon Firestick device or any other Android streaming device.

Don’t worry. We will take you through each step of this process, and it will hardly take you 10 minutes to install the application on your Amazon Firestick.

So, let’s get started.

Is Viva TV APK Safe?

Before we start to install any app, it is mandatory to check if the app is even safe to use. If the app isn’t safe to use, it can harm your devices and steal your sensitive information and data.

We have scanned the APK file of Viva TV. There were no malicious or suspicious files to be found, which means that it is safe to use.

Even though the app is safe, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t protect yourself. Whatever you stream online can be viewed by your ISPs and sometimes by your government. They can even keep track of your data and online activity, which can be sold to the highest bidders.

A safe and practical way to keep yourself safe online is by using the best VPN for Firestick.

How to Install Viva TV APK on Firestick in 3 Steps

The Viva TV APK is not available on the Amazon App Store, and we will need to sideload it. We have divided this process into 3 easy steps, so if you’ve ever sideloaded an application on your Amazon Firestick, you can skip the first 2 steps and move on directly to the third one.

If you are new to sideloading applications, we recommend that you go through all three steps to better understand the whole process.

The three steps for the installation process are as follows:

Step 1: Enabling Apps from Unknown Sources

Step 2: Installing a Sideloading App

Step 3: Installing Viva TV from a Sideloading App

Step 1: Enabling Apps from Unknown Sources

Amazon Firestick, by default, doesn’t allow users to sideload apps. You can easily download and install any app available on Amazon App Store, but you can also download and install any app through sideloading by enabling this setting on your device.

Before you start to sideload an app, you will need to change the default settings of the Amazon Firestick device since Amazon Firestick won’t let you install any app of unknown origins directly on your device.

These settings prevent you from installing any harmful or malicious apps to your device that might corrupt your device.

You can change these settings easily from the Settings menu of the Amazon Firestick devices. Allow me to take you through the process of Enabling Apps from Unknown Sources.

  1. Turn on your Amazon Firestick and go to the Home Screen. Now scroll through the top menu until you get to the last icon, which is the gear icon; select it. This is the Settings menu of your Amazon Firestick; click to open it.
    Click Settings App
  2. Navigate through the menu and go to My Fire TV and click to open it.
    Select My Fire TV
  3. Scroll down and select the Developer options and click to open it.
    Developer options highlighted in the My Fire TV menu, find Developer options.
  4. The second option in this list will be Apps from Unknown Sources; it is by default turned off.
    Apps from Unknown Sources categorized under Developer Options in My Fire TV settings
  5. Click on the option to turn it on.
  6. A warning prompt will appear; just click on turn on.
    the Developer Options and click to allow Apps from Unknown Sources

Now you have successfully enabled the apps from unknown sources, and this will allow you to install any applications developed by any third party.

However, this might make your personal data on the Amazon Firestick device less secure, especially if you do not know the origin of the third-party applications you install. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you thoroughly research all applications that you wish to install that have been developed by a third party before installing them on your Amazon Firestick device.

Let’s move on to step 2: installing the sideloading app, Downloader.

Step 2: Installing Sideloading App, Downloader

Multiple applications are available on the internet that you might want to install on your Amazon Firestick device, that are not available on the Amazon App Store

If you wish to install any application that is not available on the Amazon App Store, you can easily download it using a web browser. Amazon Firestick does not come with a web browser, but you can easily install one on your device.

The Amazon App Store has different web browser applications that you can install, and these will let you sideload different APK applications on your device.

We highly recommend Downloader. It is free to install and use and has many of the features available on any paid app. Let me show you how to download it from the Amazon App Store.

We will be downloading Downloader from the Amazon App Store using the steps given below:

  1. Go to Amazon Firestick’s Home screen, go to Find, and then click on Search.

  2. Use the on-screen keyboard to type or use the Alexa voice command button on the remote and search for Downloader here.

  3. Select Downloader from the available search results. Click on it; it will begin to download and install it.
    The Downloader app highlighted, here’s the app you want.

When Downloader has finished installing, you can launch it from the installed applications section of your device.

Step 3: Installing Viva TV APK Using Downloader on Firestick Devices

We are going to use Downloader to download and sideload the Viva TV APK on an Amazon Firestick 4K. You can also use any other sideloading app that you prefer. Since Downloader has the same great features as any paid sideloading app, we highly recommend you use it instead.

Follow the steps given below to install the Viva TV APK on Amazon Firestick devices.

  1. Go to Your Apps & Channels section and launch Downloader.
    The Downloader app tile highlighted in the tile menu under Your Apps & Channels category
  2.  The Home tab from the left side menu is selected by default when Downloader is launched. Click on the empty box under Enter a URL or Search Term on the right side.

You can easily go to this section by pressing and holding the Home button on your remote until a menu pops up. Then select the Apps tab from the on-screen menu.

Before You Stream, Read This!

Amazon Firestick is one of the most popular streaming devices of this era. The fact that you can easily jailbreak it and its very affordable price range make it quite popular among users.

Even though Amazon Firestick is a great streaming device, it is not very safe to use. You can easily install different apps by using sideload third-party apps, which can prove harmful to you.

Some of the apps, like Kodi, can stream copyrighted content which can get you into legal troubles as well.

Sometimes, your online activity is monitored by your ISPs and government, who can keep a record of all your online activities and even your online identity. This information can be sold or hacked by people to be used for illegal purposes.

It is of utmost importance that we protect ourselves online, as we do in real life. Since this era is becoming more and more online, we are practically living online more than we do in the physical world.

The quickest and most reliable way of making your online identity safe and secure is by using a secure VPN. A VPN encrypts your data and online activity, so if someone is trying to monitor your activity and you are using a VPN, they will only be able to see that you are connected to the internet. They will not be able to see what you do online.

Here at VPNCheck.org, we have tried and tested all available VPN services and have found ExpressVPN to be the most secure and reliable VPN service. It is a subscription-based VPN service, which is a small price to pay for unlimited advantages.

Allow me to guide you through the process of buying the ExpressVPN subscriptions and setting them up on your Amazon Firestick device.

How to Setup ExpressVPN

Setting up ExpressVPN is simple. Let me guide you through the process, step by step.

  1. The first step is buying a subscription. You will need a web browser for this step. We recommend you use a laptop or PC for this. You can do this step on your smartphones’ web browser as well. Go to the ExpressVPN website and follow the three steps given to set up your account. For buying the subscription, an online payment method will be required.

Basically, Real-Debrid is a downloader with no restrictions. It adds higher-quality streaming links to your Viva TV. The streaming links provided by Real-debrid have less buffering and better playback.

How to Integrate MX Player in Viva TV

A splendid feature of the Viva TV app is that it lets you add external media players to the app. If you prefer a specific kind of media player, you can easily integrate it within the Viva TV app.

You will first need to install the media player you want to integrate. Often these media players are not available on the Amazon App Store but can be sideloaded through different apps. I will sideload the MX player via Downloader and then integrate it into the Viva TV app.

Let’s get started.

  1. Launch Downloader, and in the URL bar, type this URL: https://vpnch.ec/k/mx-player
    Adding MX Player URL on Downloader
  2.  Scroll down and find the download button on the website of the MX Player. Click on the download button and wait for it to finish downloading.
    Download Button Highlighted MX-Player
  3. A popup message will appear; click on Install.

How to Add Content to Your Watchlist in Viva TV

If you are like me, you would like to add content to your watchlist. I really like to keep a list of all the movies and TV shows that seem interesting to me on my watchlist. So that when I want to watch something, I don’t have to go through the whole process of searching for that particular movie or TV show.

Viva TV comes with a Watchlist category, and you can easily add anything you want to watch to it. Let me show you how you can add content to your watchlist.

  1. Launch Viva TV on the home screen, go to the Search or TV Shows tab and search for the movie or TV show you want to add to your watch list.
  2. I am searching for Euphoria.
