In this article, we’ll take a look at the best Downloader codes for streaming movies, TV shows, live TV, and more. These codes will work with all Amazon Fire TV Stick devices, including FireStick Lite, FireStick 4K, and Fire TV Cube, as well as Android TV boxes. All of the apps listed in this article are free to download and stream.
Let’s admit it: URLs can be unwieldy at times. Most of the time, URLs are long and involve several special characters. Typing them out on a keyboard or smartphone usually isn’t too challenging, but what about with a remote? Typing a long URL with a mix of special characters is a cumbersome process on smart TVs and streaming devices such as Fire TV Stick. Fortunately, there is a solution that helps you ward off a great deal of headaches.
If you are a FireStick user, you’ve likely heard of the Downloader app, which helps users sideload apps. Sideloading typically requires typing out an entire URL with your FireStick remote. But that’s changing now! From now on, you don’t need to enter the full URL. Sounds good, right? Let me show you the shortcut! But first, we need to understand the tools we’re going to use.

What Is Downloader?
Downloader is a crucial tool created to make it as easy as possible to download apps on FireStick devices. Back in 2016, Elias Saba from AFTVnews developed the app known as Downloader to help him install Kodi on his Amazon Fire TV. And the rest is history.
All you need to do is enter a URL that directly points to a file. The app downloads APK files from the internet and installs them on your device. The Downloader app is a lifeline for the FireStick streaming community.
The app is free, is easy to use, and doesn’t show any ads. Per the official claims, the app continues to operate via donations submitted through the app’s home screen.
AFTVnews URL Shortener
Downloader made sideloading apps easier, but the tedious part is typing out the entire URL using a virtual keyboard. Well, a lot of people use URL shorteners, but you still have to deal with a few special characters like “.” and “/” that require you to enter and exit the special-character portion of the on-screen keyboard. Understanding the need for an alternative, Elias Saba rolled out the AFTVnews URL Shortener in 2020.
How Does Downloader URL Shortner Work?
As you would expect, entering a URL into the AFTVnews URL Shortener outputs a short URL. The URL ends in a 5-digit code—the Downloader code. Since the AFTVnews URL Shortener and the Downloader app are developed by the same person and integrated together, you can simply enter the 5-digit code, instead of any link at all, to download the app. Let me give you an example.
Attention, FireStick Users!
Governments and ISPs constantly monitor your online activity, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick could lead to serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend getting the best FireStick VPN to mask your IP address and securely stream your favorites.
I personally use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN available. Not only is it easy to install on any device, it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, if you're not 100% satisfied, you can always get a refund. ExpressVPN is currently also offering a whopping 3 extra months free on their annual plan!
