In this tutorial, you will learn to install and use BeeTV on FireStick. The instructions provided in this guide will work on Fire TV Stick, Fire TV, Fire TV Cube and Fire TV Stick 4K.
BeeTV is a video-on-demand app for Android that lets you stream your favorite movies and shows. This app is a hundred percent FireStick remote-friendly, making it one of my preferred streaming apps.
The app has thousands of hours of content available for streaming. The easy to use interface makes your experience even more enjoyable. While BeeTV fetches plenty of good quality links, it lets you enhance the streaming quality further with Real-Debrid integration. You can also sign in to your Trakt account within the app to sync your viewing history.
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.

BeeTV FireStick Installation Guide (2 Methods Included)
As you would probably already know that FireStick does not allow the download of the files directly from a browser. Therefore, whenever you need to sideload a third-party app, you must use a supporting, additional app. Following are the two most popular sideloading apps for FireStick and we will learn to install BeeTV using both:
- ES File Explorer
You can install both these apps from the Amazon Store by following these generic steps:
- Select the Search function (or the lens icon) on in the top-left corner of the FireStick home-screen
- Type in the name of the app you wish to download (Downloader or ES File Explorer)
- Click the name of the app in the search results on the same screen
- Follow the onscreen instructions and install the app
Install BeeTV on Fire Stick Using Downloader App
Downloader is probably the most popular sideloading app for FireStick. You can follow our detailed instructions to install Downloader on FireStick.
After installing the app, follow these steps:
- Open the Downloader app and with the Home tab selected on the left, click the URL field on the right
- Carefully enter the following URL using the onscreen keyboard: https://www.firesticktricks.com/bee
- Wait until the Downloader app downloads the Bee TV APK on FireStick
- When the following window appears, scroll down to the bottom right
- You will notice that Next button in the image above has changed to Install. Go ahead and click Install
- Allow FireStick about a minute or so to install BeeTV app
- BeeTV App Installed notification confirms that the app has indeed been installed. By clicking Open you can run the BeeTV app right away. But, let’s do that later. For now, click Done
- You will be taken back to the Downloader window where you will see the following prompt. Select and then click Delete
Note: We are deleting the BeeTV APK file to free up some space on your limited storage of FireStick. It is not mandatory but recommended.
- Click Delete again
You have successfully installed the BeeTV app on FireStick. You have also deleted the APK file. We will learn to use this app a little later.
Before you start using your BeeTV on Fire Stick, I would like to warn you that everything you stream online is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming free content (movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Fire Stick. A VPN helps you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. So, before you start streaming with BeeTV on Fire Stick, let’s see how to use ExpressVPN to keep your streaming activities hidden from prying eyes.
Step 1: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.
Step 2: Power ON your Fire TV / Stick and go to “Search” option on the extreme left. Now type “Expressvpn” (without quotes) in the search bar and select ExpressVPN when it shows up in the search results
Step 3: Click “Download” to install the ExpressVPN app for Fire TV / Stick.
Step 4: Open the app and enter your login credentials which you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription. Click “Sign in”
Step 5: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for FireStick.

Install BeeTV APK on FireStick Using ES File Explorer
Note: ES File Explorer will cost $9.99 per month to sideload apps. It is no longer free. We recommend using the free Downloader app instead. This is just an alternate method only. If you have installed BeeTV using Downloader as shown above, you don’t need to perform this installation method.
ES File Explorer is one of my favorite apps for FireStick. It not only works as a side-loader of third-party apps but also extends its functionality as an incredible file manager.
Here is how you can install BeeTV on FireStick using ES File Explorer:
- Run the ES File Explorer app. On the right side, you should see a bunch of options. Scroll down and click Downloader
- Now go ahead and click +New on the bottom
- A dialog box will pop-up. Here is what you need to enter in it: Path: https://www.firesticktricks.com/bee
Note: You may enter any name of your choice in the Name field
When you are ready, click Download Now
- ES File Explorer will now take about a minute to download the BeeTV APK file (depending upon your connection speed)
- Click Open file on this prompt when the file has been downloaded
- Click Install on this ES File Explorer prompt
- You will be redirected to the APK installation window. Scroll down to the bottom right and click Install (the Next button will change to Install)
- Wait for the BeeTV app to install
- When the installation is concluded App Installation message appears. Click Done to open BeeTV app later or click Open to run it from this screen (you may delete the BeeTV APK in the Download folder in ES File Explorer)
This is how BeeTV is installed on FireStick using ES File Explorer.
How to Access and Use BeeTV App on FireStick
When you install an app, you won’t find its icon on the FireStick home-screen. You must access it from Your Apps & Channels, which is the list of all your installed apps.

- Hold down the Home button on your Fire TV Stick remote for about 5 seconds
- When a window appears, click Apps
- Now scroll down and select the BeeTV app icon (click Select on your remote to run the app. If you want to move it to the home screen, follow the next steps)
- Click Menu key on your FireStick remote
- Click Move in the lower-right corner of your TV as you see in the following image
- Use the navigation buttons on the remote to move the icon to one of the top 3 rows
- Press Select on your remote to drop the BeeTV icon in the desired spot
- Go back to FireStick home-screen. You will now find the BeeTV icon there

When you install the app and run it for the first time, you may be prompted to update to a newer version (if any released). Go ahead and click the Update button and follow the onscreen instructions to install the update
When you open the app after the update, here is what the home-screen of BeeTV looks like. By default, the app lists the TV Shows. You may click Movies on the left sidebar to browse the movies.
To explore the Movies or TV Shows by genre/categories, click the small triangle on the top-left. You will see a drop-down menu with options such as Trending, Popular, Top Rated, Comedy, Crime, etc.
If you are looking for something specific, you can use the search option in the top-right corner (the lens icon).

- Watchlist: displays the list of movies or TV shows you have added to your watchlist
