Install IP Vanish VPN on a Firestick and Fire Tv Box
Good Morning Guys I have been writing quite a few blogs on the importance of using a VPN whilst using Kodi. Best for Kodi recommends IP Vanish. My full blog on the benefits of a Vpn and why every user should use one can be read HERE.
We have had a lot of readers contact us on how they can add the IP Vanish App to a firestick or Fire Tv Box which does not have the playstore like other android devices.
Until now i was unaware of a way to install it.
After meeting with the Guys from IP Vanish yesterday they made me aware of this option so thanks to them i have been able to produce this blog so you guys can use their amazing service.
This easy to follow guide is using an app called Downloader.
What is the Downloader App?
Downloader is an app created for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. It makes it easy to download files from the internet to your device. The app is most commonly used to easily sideload 3rd-party apps onto the Fire TV.
Apologies for the lack of screenshots, we do not have these devices to take images. We have written the blog in a simple bullet-ed points.
Unfortunately this will only work on a 2nd gen Fire Stick which is due for launch in the UK on 6th April.
This method will also work on both generations of the Fire Tv Box. Sorry to all you guys who have the old 1st gen sticks maybe its time to pre-order the new one from Amazon.
