There are various other services are already available but the reason why this became famous is it doesn’t have any contract. You can use it just like we use Netflix, just purchase the premium membership monthly and watch until it ends.

Both of the passes come with free trial expect for the Sky Sports which you have to purchase its plan for streaming.

How To Install Now TV on Firestick


Now TV isn’t directly available for the Amazon Firestick users and this is what hurts most when you already subscribed their package and then found no app on the Amazon Store. So, don’t worry about it anymore as if you have a jailbroken Fire TV Stick then you have an option to sideload third-party apps.

If you haven’t already jailbreak then make sure to follow this guide and then come back to the installation process: How to Jailbreak Firestick

After successfully jailbreaking Firestick now we have to enable the installation of Unknown Source as by default we cannot install any app downloaded from the internet. You can simply check out the steps by following this guide and then you should move further: How to Enable Apps from Unknown Sources on Firestick

Ok, so after following both of the above-provided guides now just follow below installation guide:

In this guide, we first use the app named Downloader, which is the most famous and most downloaded app as it helps us to download other apps from the internet. It has the simple user-interface that is remote-friendly and this is why people prefer to use it instead of using a web browser.

We don’t get Downloader along with Firestick so we have to get it manually by following below steps:

Launch Firestick on your TV and then from Home Screen hover to the above menu and then click on the Search icon.


After this using the keyboard type Downloader and then hit search button.


At this time click on the first result, you see there and click the Download button.


This will download and install the Downloader in your Firestick and then click open to launch it.


When you launch it for the first time you will be asked to allow permission to access Files, Photos etc just Allow it otherwise it won’t download anything.


Now the Downloader app is installed successfully so after this we have to simply download Now TV using this app. The downloading steps and installations steps are given below so keep reading this guide.

When you launch Downloader on Firestick you will see there is a box with HTTP:// prefix, so hover to that box and erase everything written there. And after this just type this address in that box and then hit the Go button.


It will then start connecting to the server and after this, you will see file starts downloading itself.


When the app is downloaded now it will automatically redirect you to the installation Window. From there you will see two buttons 1. Install and 2. Cancel, just click Install.


Now, wait for a while until the Now TV installed and then hit Done button.


Now the file is successfully deleted as we don’t need it anymore because the original app is installed. After this, you can simply launch it by going to Your Apps & Channels and click on See all.

Just scroll down and you will see the Now TV icon appears there so highlight it and press the select button to launch.


You can also bring it to the front page by pressing and holding the Home Button for 20 seconds. it will then open a new window on your TV Screen so from there click on Applications.

Here you will see the list of all apps that are installed on Firestick so move below and highlight Now TV. After this click Menu button and on the bottom left menu will appear now from there click Move to Front.

Install Now TV on Firestick using ES File Explorer

Many people have a complaint to me about the Downloader method is not working, or some of them facing server down the issue. For this, I have this new method in which we use the most famous file manager named ES File Explorer. People use it as an alternative File Manager but it is more than this.

It can help a user to download files from FTP and can be used as a Download Manager, we can also share files between Windows & Android. Even though this file manager also offers the Hidden Files feature as well as the Root explorer so we can access system files but for the Rooted device only.

Ok, so enough intro let’s dig down the below steps to see how we can use it to download Now TV:

  • Go to Home Screen and hover to the above menu and click Search.
  • Now type ES File Explorer in the search box and hit enter.
  • Click the first result you see there and then select Get.
  • The File Manager will start downloading and then click on Open when downloads complete.
  • After launching click on the 3-row menu and then click Favourite.
  • From there click on Add button.
  • A box will appear so type in path section and type Now TV in the name section and click on Add.
  • After this again go to 3 dot menu and then expand the favourite section, at this time click on Now TV (that we added).
  • This will then start connecting to the server and within a seconds file will start downloading automatically.
  • After the file is downloaded now it will open installation Window from there click Install.
  • When the installation is done just click Open to launch it and here you can see the app is working fine.

Everything is done now you can simply sign in with your user credentials to start watching all your content directly on Firestick.
