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!

How to Use Nat Geo TV on FireStick
Before using Nat Geo TV to stream content on FireStick, I recommend creating a shortcut or moving the app to your device’s home screen. Moving the app to your home screen is convenient and helps you avoid wasting time flipping through different apps to get to the Nat Geo TV app.
The first thing you notice after launching the Nat Geo TV app is the attractive interface. The home screen has an option bar at the top to aid navigation. This bar includes the Home, Browse, Live TV, Search and Account Options.
You’ll also see that the home screen is divided into various content categories. These include: Live Now, New and Popular, Inside Access, Latest Full Episodes, Pol & Pets, Sharkfest, Bingeable Favorites/ Watch Free, Out in the Wild, and many more.
At the bottom of the home screen is a My List section where you can add all your favorite episodes and documentaries from the app.
To access the app’s main menu, click the Browse option around the top. Similar to the app’s home screen, the menu is divided into five tabs. These are A-Z, National Geographic, Nat Geo WILD, Watch Free, and National Geographic on Disney.
To go through the available content using the A-Z format, click the A-Z tab at the top of the menu. Below the A-Z tab is the National Geographic tab. Click on this tab to view the app’s different scientific, nature, and documentaries available.
If you prefer to enter a specific title directly, you can use the search button at the top of the home screen. Alternatively, use the browse option to review available content in various sub-categories.
To watch content specific to wildlife, click the menu’s Nat Geo Wild tab. In this part, you’ll find various content, including documentaries about national parks worldwide, stories about wildlife exploitation and crime, unique stories about unknown or threatened species of animals and birds, and much more.
To watch live TV shows from the Nat Geo TV app, click the Live TV option. As stated earlier, you must link your account to a TV streaming service or create a Nat Geo TV account to access any content on this window.
To create an account or link TNT to a specific service provider, click the Account button on the home screen, then follow the instructions.
Even though you can still browse and view some of the available content without an account, creating an account will have numerous benefits. For example, you can access Live TV shows, add content to your favorite list, sync your app preferences across multiple devices and access a resume watching function.
If you already have a content streaming service provider, click the TV Provider option on the account menu to select them on the available list. Next, follow-on screen instructions to complete the linking process.
