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.
How to watch USTVGo on FireStick
As I said, USTVGo is a web-based streaming service. Therefore, you do not need to install any third-party APK on your FireStick. However, what you do need is a browser.
Here is what we are going to do:
- Install a web browser on FireStick
- Access USTVGo via the web browser
1) Install a web browser on FireStick
While FireStick supports a few browsers, Silk and Firefox are the best among them.
I prefer the Silk browser over Firefox for a variety of reasons.
First, it is an in-house browser of Amazon customized for Fire TV devices. This browser goes along well with your FireStick.
Second, it has more features and options than Firefox.
I am going to use the Amazon Silk browser for the demonstration purposes in this guide. However, if you like Firefox more, you can get that too. The installation process is the same.
Here is how you install the browser on FireStick to watch USTVGo:
1. From the home screen of your FireStick, select the Search option (or the lens icon) in the top-left corner (check the image below)
2. Next, type in Silk Browser with the help of the on-screen keyboard (or you could hold down the Alexa button on the remote and give the voice command instead)
When you see Silk Browser in the search results, go ahead and click it
Note: If you want to install Firefox, search for Firefox instead
3. On the following window, click the Silk Browser tile (or Firefox)
4. You should see the Get button if you are downloading the browser for the first time.
Or, it will display Download if you had installed it earlier
Click whichever button you see
5. Wait while the FireStick downloads and installs the browser
This will only take a few minutes
6. Once the browser is installed, you may click the Open button and launch the browser
2) Watch USTVGo on FireStick in the browser
In this section, we will see how we can watch USTVGo on FireStick using the browser we just installed.
If you clicked Open in the last section, you can get started straight away. In case you closed the browser, let me show you how to access it again. The following steps will also show you how to watch live TV on USTVGo:
1. Go to the home screen of your FireStick
Select the section/row Your Apps & Channels
2. Go to the left (the first option) and click See All
Note: If the See All option is not there, keep going to the right in the same row until you find the browser you installed
3. Scroll down to the bottom row and click the browser to open it
Note: If you want to access the browser from the home screen, click the 3-line button on the FireStick remote to bring up the menu. Click Move on the popup menu on your screen. Reposition the browser tile to the first row. It will now display on your FireStick home screen.
4. Highlight the address bar in the top-left and click it
5. You must now see the on-screen keypad.
Type the following address: ustvgo.tv
6. You may see the following prompt asking you to calibrate the display
Ustvgo.tv does not require any calibration. Therefore, click Cancel.
Note: If the website doesn’t display properly, you may calibrate later as well from the FireStick Settings. Go to Settings > Display & Sounds > Display > Calibrate Display
7. This is the homepage of the USTVGo website.
Now, all you need to do is choose the TV channel you want to watch and start streaming.

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.
