Follow along with this guide and I will show you how to install Vidgo on FireStick. These instructions apply to all Fire TV models, including FireStick Lite, Fire TV Cube, FireStick 4K, and FireStick 4K Max. I will also highlight Vidgo’s features and show you how to maximize your experience.
Vidgo is an official online streaming service that offers a vast range of live streaming options with over 60 live channels to watch. The channels vary in content, offering sports, news, lifestyle, kids television, documentaries, and other types of programs for your viewing pleasure.
The app is a subscription-based service, meaning users have to pay a fee before gaining access to its streams. To find out if Vidgo is a good fit for you, you can sign up for the 7-day, all-access free trial.
Vidgo is also very lenient, allowing subscribers to have as many as three simultaneous streams. This means that one account can be used on up to three other devices at the same time. However, it does not support recording content due to piracy risks and illegal sharing.
Last but not least, Vidgo offers Spanish content for viewers who would like to view in Spanish.
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!
How to Subscribe to Vidgo
As I mentioned, Vidgo offers a 7-day free trial to new users via their website. Before the trial ends, you will have to decide if you would like to commit to the subscription. Note that you will be charged automatically when the free trial period is over, so if Vidgo is not for you, you will need to cancel your trial before that happens.
Vidgo offers different monthly subscription packages to suit your budget. The Plus plan with 100+ channels costs $55 per month, while the Premium plan gives you 140+ channels and costs $79.95 per month. Spanish viewers can get started with the Latino package at $30 per month with 50+ channels. All you need to do to get started is go to the website and register. Follow these steps:
1. Open vidgo.com on your mobile device and scroll down to see the packages available.
2. Below each package, you’ll see a FREE TRIAL button. Click on it for the plan you’d like to try.
3. Fill in your payment details.
4. Agree to the terms and conditions and click on SUBMIT.
Once that goes through and your account is verified, you will be all set to use Vidgo.
How to Watch Vidgo From Anywhere
Vidgo is available in the Amazon App Store, meaning the streams you can enjoy via the service are legal and secure.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean Vidgo is available where you live. Right now, the service is available only in the US.
So what can you do if you live outside the US? Use a VPN! A VPN is a piece of software that lets you artificially relocate yourself to almost anywhere in the world, unlocking access to services and content you couldn’t access otherwise. Using a VPN also keeps your internet activity completely confidential. All you have to do is change your Amazon account location and then get our top pick for VPNs, ExpressVPN.
Install ExpressVPN on FireStick using the steps below.
Step 1: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Power ON your Fire TV Stick and go to Find followed by Search option.
Step 3: Now type “Expressvpn” (without quotes) in the search bar and select ExpressVPN when it shows up in the search results.
Step 4: Click Download to install the ExpressVPN app on Fire TV / Stick.
Step 5: Open the app and enter the login credentials that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription. Click Sign in.
Step 6: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for FireStick.

How to Install Vidgo on FireStick (Unofficial)
If you’re outside the US and you don’t use a VPN to set your location to the US, the alternative is to get an unofficial version of Vidgo from a third-party source. That’s what this section of the guide will cover.
However, keep in mind that using an unofficial version of the app may expose you to privacy vulnerabilities. So I recommend using ExpressVPN even if you go this route.
If you don’t already use Downloader on your FireStick, follow this guide to get Downloader and change the necessary settings.
Once you’re ready to go with Downloader, follow these steps to sideload Vidgo on your FireStick.
1. Go to settings.
2. Navigate to My Fire TV and select it.
3. Open Developer Options.
4. Select Apps from Unknown Sources.
5. Choose Turn On on the following prompt. The setting will then be shown as ON.
6. Press the home button on your FireStick remote. Then scroll to the right and select the view apps button.
7. Open Downloader. If you don’t see the app, scroll to the bottom and select App Library and you’ll find it there.
8. Navigate to the search box on the Downloader home screen.
9. Enter https://bit.ly/3JmAcZz using the virtual keyboard. Make sure you’ve entered it exactly as shown, then select Go.
Note: FireStickTricks.com doesn’t distribute or host this file.
10. Vidgo will automatically start to download on your FireStick.
11. After the download, select INSTALL.
12. Vidgo installation will begin.
13. Once installation is complete, select OPEN to launch the app or DONE to close prompt.
Note: If you select DONE, you’ll next want to select Delete twice when prompted. Vidgo has already been installed, so the Vidgo APK is only wasting space on your device now.
14. If you click OPEN, the Vidgo app will load and open to the sign-in page.
15. Enter your account details to log in to your account and start streaming!
How to Use Vidgo

Press and hold the home button on your FireStick remote for several seconds. A menu will appear. Click Apps.
After that, select and open Vidgo.

On the launch screen, Vidgo will ask you to sign in to your paid Vidgo account. Enter your email address and password, and then click on the SIGN IN button.
After a few seconds, you’ll land on the home page of Vidgo! Feel free to explore various sections of the app.
How to Create Vidgo Shortcut on FireStick
For easy access, you can create a shortcut to the Vidgo app on your FireStick home screen. To read full instructions for this process, see my guide on creating app shortcuts on the home screen.
Here’s a quick overview for those who are familiar with the Fire TV interface: Navigate to the home screen and select the view apps button. Scroll to the Vidgo app without selecting it.
Press the menu button (three horizontal lines) on your FireStick remote. Select the Move to front option and Vidgo will be pinned to your home screen.
After creating a shortcut, you can easily launch Vidgo from the home screen by selecting the corresponding tile.
Vidgo offers a strong lineup of channels spanning multiple categories and genres of media, leaving users spoiled for choice on what to watch. Viewers will have no issue finding content from all around the globe, including foreign language media.
One of the main strengths of Vidgo is the breadth of the sports coverage it offers viewers. The biggest sporting events from all over the globe are accessible live in high definition. Sporting competitions at collegiate level get ample coverage.
Want media and shows that the family can watch together? Vidgo has that covered with an extensive selection of family channels and kids television.
Vidgo users can find content to watch with the help of a built-in channel guide that provides scheduling information for shows and sports.
Furthermore, the service allows up to three simultaneous streams using a single account, at home or on the go.
Unfortunately, however, you cannot create separate profiles on a single account.
One of the major drawbacks of using Vidgo is it does not have DVR capability. Users cannot record shows to watch at another convenient time.
I hope you were able to install Vidgo on FireStick by following this guide. I have covered what the Vidgo app does and how it works. Vidgo’s extensive coverage of sports, movies, TV shows, kids television, and more is among the best out there. And Spanish viewers are not left out, with a substantial range of Spanish-language channels. Get your subscription and start streaming content in high definition through an intuitive user interface.
