In this tutorial, I will show you how to install Relax TV APK on FireStick. The instructions used in this guide also work on Fire Stick 4k and Fire TV Cube.
Relax TV is a Live TV app that lets you stream cable TV channels from nearly all over the world. It boasts of a simple and incredibly user-friendly interface that lets you start watching your favorite channels in no time. And, there are literally hundreds of channels to pick from. After testing this app and using it for a while, I was sure it should be the part of our list of Best FireStick Apps.
Please note that you need to install VLC media player for the video playback through Relax TV APK. You can do that easily from the Amazon Store.
How to Install Relax TV APK on FireStick
I will demonstrate three methods to install Relax TV app on FireStick as follows:
- Method 1: Downloader App
- Method 2: ES File Explorer App
- Method 3: FileLinked App
You need to use any one of the three methods and not all of them. Let’s get going.
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.
Installation Prerequisite: Enable Apps from Unknown Sources
If you want your FireStick to side-load third-party apps like Relax TV, you will need to switch the security option Apps from Unknown Sources ON. For security reasons, this option is disabled by default. Here are the steps:
#1. Power up your FireStick device and when the home-screen loads up, select Settings on the menu that you see on the top
#2. Scroll to the right and click My Fire TV (or Device if your FireStick still runs on old firmware)
#3. Open the item Developer Options
#4. You will find Apps from Unknown Sources here. If you see that it is OFF, click it so that you can switch it ON
#5. Before enabling this option, FireStick will warn you about the potential risks associated with side loading third-party apps. No need to heed this warning as Relax TV APK is safe. Click Turn On
Note: It would be a good idea to disable this option once you have installed Relax TV
Relax TV Installation Method #1: Using Downloader App
Downloader is probably the most popular side-loading app for FireStick devices. You can download this app directly from the Amazon Store.
Once you have the Downloader app, follow the instructions below:
#1. Run the app and click the text field on the right where it asks you to enter the URL (make sure Home tab on the left is selected)
#2. Type the following URL carefully: https://www.firesticktricks.com/relax
#3. Wait while the Downloader app connects to the Relax TV APK server and then downloads it onto your FireStick storage. It may take a couple of minutes
#4. When the Relax TV APK download is complete, installation is automatically initiated by the Downloader app. You must now see a window like this with Next button on the bottom right. Scroll down a bit.
#5. You will notice that the Next button has been replaced by the Install button. Go ahead and click it
#6. FireStick will thus begin to install the Relax TV app. It may take a minute
#7. When App installed message is displayed, you will know the app has been installed. Click Done as I will show you how to open the app later
#8. When you are guided back to the Downloader app, you will see the following active prompt. Click Delete
#9. Click Delete again. By doing so, you will delete the Relax TV APK from the FireStick storage. It is no longer needed. Clear up the limited storage space on FireStick whenever you get the opportunity.
You have successfully installed Relax TV on FireStick. We will explore the app a bit later in this guide.
Relax TV APK Installation Method #2: ES File Explorer App
Please note that this is an alternative method and if you have already installed Relax TV through Downloader, you can skip these steps. ES File Explorer is one of the must-have apps for FireStick. That’s why I have added this method in this guide.
Follow the steps below:
#1. Download ES File Explorer from the Amazon Store by using the search option (top-left corner of the home-screen). You simply need to look up for the app and follow the onscreen instructions
#2. Open ES File Explorer. You should find a bunch of icons on the right part of the window. Locate and open the Downloader icon
#3. Now scroll down to the bottom menu bar and click +New
#4. You should now see the following dialogue box
#5. Enter the URL https://www.firesticktricks.com/relax in the Path field
Enter any name (like relax) in the Name field. You may also leave this field blank if you experiencing difficulty navigating to it.
Click Download now
#6. ES File Explorer will download the Relax TV APK on FireStick. Wait for the download to finish
#7. Click Open file when you see this prompt
#8. Click Install next
#9. Scroll down to the bottom right of this window where you see Next
#10. Next is replaced by Install button. Go ahead and click Install
#11. It will take a minute for the Relax TV APK to install
#12. Click Open and run the app when you see App installed message. Click Done if you would use it later.
#13. (Optional) If you want to delete the Relax TV APK that you downloaded earlier, here is what you do:
- Click Local menu item on the left
- Select the second Home option
- Go to the right and open Download folder
- Select the Relax TV APK file and delete it
Relax TV Installation Method #3: FileLinked App
Again, this is an alternative method and you don’t need to follow it if you have already installed Relax TV using one of the above two methods.
FileLinked is a handy sideloading app, which was previously called DroidAdmin. You can easily install and learn to use FileLinked.
Once you have the FileLinked app, follow the instructions below:
#1. Launch FileLinked
#2. Enter the code 71019907 and click Continue
#3. When you see this window, click the download button on the right next to the Relax TV APK
#4. Wait while the Reax TV APK is downloaded
#5. The download button will now change into the Play button once the file has been downloaded. Click the Play button on the right
#6. Scroll down to the bottom right of the following window where you see Next
Click the Install button when it replaces Next
#7. Wait for the App installed message. You have successfully installed Relax TV on FireStick. Now go ahead and click Open to start the app immediately. To open the app later, click Done
Note: If you want to delete the APK file you downloaded, use ES File Explorer and navigate to the folder FileLinked > Downloads
How to Access and Use Relax TV on FireStick
When you install any app, you will not find it on the home screen of your FireStick. Here is how you access it:
- Hold down the Home key on your FireStick remote for a few seconds until a window pops up
- Click Apps
- You would now see the section Your Apps & Channels. Scroll down to the bottom where you will find the Relax TV app. Click to open it
- To move the app to the home-screen, press the menu key on the FireStick remote and select Move or Move to Front in the bottom-left corner
When you run Relax TV, you will encounter certain error prompts related to Google Play. Here is one of those prompts:
Don’t worry about these prompts. Just keep pressing the back or okay button until you get to the main screen of the app. This is how it looks like:
As you can see, there are 3 tabs on the top:
- Live TV
- Web TV
- Relax TV
These options let you explore a wide range of satellite channels and cable TV networks from around the world.
There is one important thing to note! You will need VLC Media Player installed on FireStick to play the videos. When you click the ‘Play’ icon on the top-right, the app gives you the option to choose the default player. That doesn’t work though!
Regardless of the media player you choose, if VLC is not there, it will prompt you to install it first. When you see this prompt, simply click Continue and follow the onscreen instructions to install VLC on FireStick.
Your FireStick / Fire TV is now all ready to stream your favorite content. However, before you start, I would like to warn you that everything you stream online is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming free movies, TV shows, Sports might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Fire Stick. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kind of streaming apps and is very easy-to-install on Fire TV / Stick.
We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on your Fire Stick / Fire TV, let’s see how to use ExpressVPN to keep your streaming activities hidden from prying eyes.
Step 1: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.

Step 3: Click “Download” to install the ExpressVPN app for Fire TV / Stick.
Step 4: Open the app and enter your login credentials which you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription. Click “Sign in”

Relax TV looks like a solid app to watch Live TV on FireStick. Besides a handful of Google Play related error prompts I don’t see any notable issues with the app. Yes, it forces you to install VLC and doesn’t work with any other media player, despite giving you the option to choose others, I personally believe that’s not a big deal. VLC anyway is a handy app to have, it is lightweight and can be easily installed from Amazon Store.
The app comes with a huge collection of Live TV channels from across the globe. Almost every channel I tried, worked. Relax TV APK offers a straightforward, easy to use interface that lets you get started instantly. There are no Settings to tweak or choose multiple options from. This kind of limits customization abilities, but also makes the app uncomplicated. If you like watching Live TV and want to make the experience truly fuss-free, try Relax TV APK on FireStick.Liked the Guide? Don't Forget to Share with your Family & Friends
