If you enjoy Live TV streaming on FireStick, you are up for a treat. Redbox TV brings to you a whole host of satellite channels from the USA, UK, Canada, India and many other regions/countries.

How to Install Redbox TV APK on FireStick
Redbox TV APK is not an Amazon Store app. Hence, it is manually sideloaded onto your FireStick device. That’s not difficult though. I will provide the step-by-step instructions.
However, before we get started, we must give the proper permission to your FireStick to install the apps from outside Amazon Store (also called third-party apps). Here is how you can do that:
Attention FireStick Users: Read before you continue
Governments and ISPs across the world monitor their users' online activities. If found streaming copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick, you could get into serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend you to get a good FireStick VPN and hide your identity so that your movie viewing experience doesn’t take a bad turn.
I use ExpressVPN which is the fastest and most secure VPN in the industry. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon Fire TV Stick. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don't like their service, you can always ask for a refund. ExpressVPN also has a special deal where you can get 3 months free and save 49% on annual plan.
1. Go the home screen of FireStick. Navigate to the top. Select Settings
2. Now navigate to My Fire TV within Settings and open it
3. Open the item Developer Options
4. Switch on the option Apps from Unknown Sources
5. When warned, continue by clicking Turn on
Note: Redbox TV is a safe app trusted by many. However, it would be a good idea to disable Apps from Unknown Sources for security purposes after installing this app
We now go to the installation part.
