In this tutorial, I will show you how to install, set up, and use Flix IPTV on FireStick, Fire TV Stick Lite, FireStick 4K, and Fire TV Cube.
Amazon FireStick brings thousands of TV shows and movies to our fingertips. Most users stick with Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, YouTube, and Peacock. However, there are other IPTV apps and players that allow you to enjoy live TV shows and movies from around the globe. Flix IPTV is an interesting IPTV player that surely deserves a place on your FireStick home screen.
Before we guide you through installing Flix IPTV on FireStick, let’s talk about what Flix IPTV is so you know what to expect.
What Is Flix IPTV?
There are two types of IPTV apps: IPTV players and IPTV services/providers. Not every IPTV service comes with a dedicated app to stream the content. They rely on IPTV player apps that let users play the media.
Flix IPTV is an IPTV player that lets you stream content from IPTV apps such as Thunder TV and PrimeStreams. The service doesn’t have any content of its own. You need to create a playlist using a Mac address and a URL from the app.
As for pricing, Flix IPTV comes with a free one-week trial. After that, you have to pay a one-time fee of €7.49 (about $9) for each TV or device you use the app on.
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!

As I mentioned above, we will use Downloader to sideload and install Flix IPTV on the FireStick. But before we can proceed, we need to change some FireStick settings.
7. Press and hold the home button on your FireStick remote.
8. Go to Settings.
9. Scroll down and select My Fire TV.

Before you start integrating IPTV services into the Flix IPTV app, let’s explore the legal status of the app, as well as a trick to keep you out of legal trouble in the future.
Is Flix IPTV Legal?
Here’s where it gets tricky. On the surface, Flix IPTV is legal to download and use. But if you dig deeper, you may discover problems with certain content in certain regions. Let me elaborate.
Some of the live TV channels, TV series, and movies you can consume on Flix IPTV may be licensed by some other media company within your country. This means that the company would have exclusive rights to stream the content in the region. If you try to stream the copyrighted content in the country, it may put you in legal jeopardy.
The thing is, your government and ISP providers can see what you watch on your FireStick. Unintentionally streaming illegal content can leave you vulnerable.
We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. However, what if you end up accidentally streaming content from an illegitimate source? For a typical user, it’s not easy to tell the difference between a legal and an illegal source.
Thankfully, there is a way to avoid this situation on your FireStick. Using our recommended service, ExpressVPN, you can mask your online identity. We advise using ExpressVPN due to its blazing fast speeds, its native FireStick app, and its airtight security protocols. Additionally, the service comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can try it risk-free.
