Steps to Install Apollo TV on FireStick
Let us now go through the instructions to install Apollo TV APK on Amazon FireStick. Here we go:
Attention FireStick Users: Read before you continue
Governments and ISPs across the world monitor their users' online activities. If found streaming copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick, you could get into serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend you to get a good FireStick VPN and hide your identity so that your movie viewing experience doesn’t take a bad turn.
I use ExpressVPN which is the fastest and most secure VPN in the industry. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon Fire TV Stick. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don't like their service, you can always ask for a refund. ExpressVPN also has a special deal where you can get 3 months free and save 49% on annual plan.
1- After powering up your FireStick, go to the top and select the Settings option in the menu
2- Within Settings, go to My Fire TV and click it
3- Now open Developer Options
4- To allow installation of Apollo TV, the option Apps from Unknown Sources on the next screen should be ON
Click this option if it is OFF
5- When you see this warning message, dismiss it by clicking Turn On
Apollo TV is a safe app. There is nothing to worry about it
6- We now go back to the home window of FireStick (you may press the Home button on the remote once or press the back button repeatedly)
On the home window, we again navigate to the top and select the magnifying glass image in the upper-left corner
7- We now look up for the app called Downloader. It is a sideloading tool for FireStick and we will use it to install Apollo TV. When Downloader appears in the search results click it. Now, follow the onscreen instructions to download and install this app

8- Run the Downloader app

13- Click Install when the APK download is finished
14- Wait for the App installed message/notification
You are free to click Open. This will run the app instantly.
However, I recommend clicking Done (I will tell you why in the next step)
15- Click Delete
We are going to delete the Apollo TV APK, which we downloaded but which is not needed anymore as the app is already installed. This will spare some space on the FireStick storage, which is very limited
16- Click Delete again
So, that is how we install the Apollo TV APK on FireStick.
