In this tutorial, I will show you how to install, set up, and use Thunder TV IPTV on FireStick, Fire TV, FireStick 4K, New FireStick 4K, New FireStick 4K Max, and Fire TV Cube. I will also review the service, explain what it offers, and explain if it’s legal and worth subscribing to.
Over the last few years, Amazon has successfully captured the streaming device market with new launches, innovative features, fluid UI, and support for various types of video streaming apps. People know names like Netflix, Prime Video, Peacock, and Disney+.
However, the popularity of IPTV apps is difficult to ignore. With IPTV apps like PrimeStreams and Thunder TV, you can easily stream well-known TV series, movies, and live TV channels around the globe.
Among the IPTV services for FireStick, Thunder TV comfortably earns our recommendation with support for over 22,000 live TV channels in various categories, including sports, news, and entertainment.
Before installing Thunder TV on the Firestick and reviewing its features and price, let’s first understand what Thunder IPTV is and why it’s getting popular.
Attention: Read before you continue
Governments and ISPs across the world monitor their users' online activities. If found streaming copyrighted content on your device, you could get into serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend you get a good 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 for IPTV. 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 an annual plan.
What Is Thunder TV?
Thunder TV for live TV channels and on-demand content. This IPTV service offers over 22,000 live TV channels spanning various niches like entertainment, news, kids, travel, and lifestyle.
Thunder TV also features local and international sports channels in HD and full HD quality. In addition to the vast library, Thunder TV IPTV has a simple interface and several global server locations to ensure your streaming experience is stable and reliable.

Additionally, Thunder TV offers free software library updates and quick buffer-free links. Other notable highlights of this IPTV include the flexible and affordable subscription plans and the 7-day money-back guarantee.
Is Thunder TV Safe & Legal?
It isn’t easy to determine whether Thunder TV is safe as it isn’t available on licensed app stores like Amazon. That alone calls for extra caution when installing this service on your device. Ideally, users should first verify this IPTV’s sources before subscribing and using it to stream content.
I scanned the APK file of the Thunder TV app. 4 out of 63 security vendors have marked it as malicious. Even though it has caused no trouble on my FireStick, I recommend you exercise caution while using this app.
Another reason for alarm is that Thunder TV is surprisingly cheaper than other IPTV and streaming services, including YouTube TV Live.
FireStickTricks.com can’t determine the legitimacy of every content source available to Thunder IPTV. Remember, copyright licensing agreements vary from one region to another. Still, it’s crucial to protect yourself from anyone monitoring your device, for example, the authorities or your ISP.
Note that, intentionally or unintentionally, streaming content from unverified sources can have legal consequences. The best way to protect yourself is by hiding your IP address using a VPN. A VPN encrypts your device’s data and history, so it’s invisible to anyone who tries to intercept it.
We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. However, what if you accidentally stream content from an illegitimate source? For typical users, it’s not always easy to tell the difference between a legal and an illegal source.
First, you need to subscribe to ExpressVPN. The service comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If unsatisfied with the service, you can receive a full refund within 30 days of your payment, no questions asked. Please read our detailed guide to learn how to install ExpressVPN on FireStick.
