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 and older FireStick.
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, UAE, India, and more.
Ola TV APK is the replacement of now-defunct Relax TV, which was once very popular.
Ola TV requires two supporting apps: Ludio Player and Kshaw. It does not work with any other media players; not even MX Player.
I have provided the instructions to install Ludio Player and Kshaw immediately after the installation steps for Ola TV.

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 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!
