Are you looking to install APK on your Firetv device? Whether it’s for streaming, gaming or any other purpose, installing an APK on your Firetv isn’t that difficult. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process step by step.

What is APK?

APK stands for “Android Package Kit.” It’s the file format that Android uses for its apps. You can download and install APK files on Android devices, including Amazon FireTV.

Before you begin

Before we dive into the installation process, there are a few things you need to consider:

  • Make sure your Firetv device is running on Android OS
  • Enable “Apps from Unknown Sources” in your Firetv settings
  • You need to have a reliable File Manager app installed such as ES File Explorer or Downloader app.

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Download the APK file

Firstly, you need to find and download the APK file of the app or game which you want to install. There are many websites where you can download APK files for free. Choose a trusted website such as or

Once you’ve found the website and downloaded the APK file, move on to step two.

Step 2: Install a File Manager App

You need a file manager application to navigate through your files and folders. We recommend using ES File Explorer or Downloader app.

If you do not have them installed already, go ahead and download one of these applications from Amazon App Store.

Step 3: Install the downloaded application using ES File Explorer

Now that you have both an APK file and a file manager application installed on your device let’s move on to the installation part.

Open ES File Explorer and navigate to the folder where you have downloaded the APK file. Click on the APK file, and you’ll see a prompt that says “Parse error.”

To enable installation, go to “Settings” and enable “Unknown sources.” Go back to the APK file and click on it again. This time it should install without any issues.

Step 4: Install the downloaded application using Downloader app

If you are using Downloader app instead of ES File Explorer, open it up and enter the URL of the website from which you’ve downloaded the APK file. Click on download, and it will start downloading.

Once downloaded, click on “Install”, and it will ask for permission to access your media files. Allow it by clicking “OK”.

The installation process will begin shortly after that. Once completed, you can open the app from your Firetv home screen or apps section.


Installing an APK on Firetv is pretty simple once you know what to do. Just make sure you download APK files from trusted websites only as there are many malware-infected files out there that can harm your device. Also, ensure that you have enabled “Apps from Unknown Sources” in your device settings before installing any APK file.
