In this guide, I will demonstrate how to install, set up, and use SS IPTV on FireStick products, including FireStick 4K, FireStick Lite, and Fire TV Cube.
Amazon FireStick already comes with popular streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and Peacock. Another category that you can explore on the FireStick is IPTV apps. IPTV stands for internet protocol television, and it allows users to stream television programs over the internet, eliminating the need for satellite dishes or fiber-optic cables. There are many IPTV services for FireStick. Among them, SS IPTV stands out for obvious reasons.
Before we jump into the installation guide, let’s understand what SS IPTV is and why is it climbing the popularity chart.
What Is SS IPTV?
SS IPTV is a free multi-player service to play videos and TV channels on your smart TV or smart streaming devices such as a Roku or FireStick over the internet. The app is integrated with hundreds of IPTV operators and users can get access to the content, provided by the selected IPTV operator.
Don’t confuse SS IPTV with an IPTV service that offers TV channels. SS IPTV doesn’t render IPTV service itself. It just allows users to get access to the content, provided by the IPTV operator. One can also buy a subscription plan from an IPTV provider, get an m3u link, and add it into SS to stream the content.
As for the SS IPTV itself, it’s completely free to download and use on the FireStick. Convinced to give it a try? Let’s go through the installation guide below to use SS IPTV on the FireStick.
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!
