In this tutorial, you will learn to install Ola TV on FireStick. I have taken the screenshots used in this guide on my FireStick 4K. However, the method works the same way on other Fire TV devices, including Fire TV Cube, FireStick 4K Max, 4K, FireStick HDTV Lite, FireStick 3rd Gen, New FireStick 4K, New FireStick 4K Max, and older FireStick models.
What is Ola TV?
Ola TV is a live TV streaming service with hundreds of cable TV channels. This app streams channels (local and national) from the United States and a host of foreign countries, including the UK, Canada, Brazil, the UAE, India, and more.
Ola TV requires two supporting apps: Kshaw and Ludio Player. It does not work with other media players, not even MX Player.
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!
Is Ola TV Safe & Legal?
Ola TV is a third-party application, which means that it is not available on the Amazon app store. These apps frequently come from unauthorized sources, exposing you to the risk of viruses and vulnerabilities in security. Unfortunately, FireStickTricks doesn’t have the tools and expertise to claim that Ola TV is safe.
However, I ran the Ola TV APK file through a virus scan using VirusTotal. Luckily, no vendor flagged it as malicious. Check the image below.
Regarding legality, as mentioned earlier, Ola TV is a third-party application. Most third-party applications include premium channels and live sporting events without proper licensing or permission from the content owners. This can put you in legal trouble. FireStickTricks doesn’t have the expertise and tools to vouch for the Ola TV app’s legality.
How to Install Ola TV on FireStick
Ola TV is a third-party application unavailable via the Amazon app store. Therefore It must be sideloaded onto your FireStick (and other Fire TV devices) using an app called Downloader. It is a two-part process as follows:
