To install this app on your Fire Stick, you need to follow a special set of instructions. Unlike other Fire Stick-compatible apps, you’ll need to turn on special features in order to be able to download this app. Once these special features are on, you just need to provide the correct link and then you’re on your way to customizing your app preferences.
In this guide, we’ll cover each step in the installation process in more detail while also answering your burning questions about this new streaming platform.
Installing Apollo Group TV on a Fire Stick
Apollo Group TV grants its subscribers access to an endless list of television channels, live pay-per-view events, and movies. In fact, this streaming platform is said to surpass all of the traditional fields of Internet Protocol Television. To get this coveted platform onto your Amazon Fire Stick, there are eight important steps to follow:
- Access your Fire Stick settings
- Access the “Developer” option
- Turn on ADB Debugging
- Turn on “Apps from Unknown Sources”
- Return home and access the Downloader
- Enter the Downloader link
- Install Apollo Group TV
- Launch and customize the app
Let’s dive a little deeper into each step below.
1. Access Fire Stick Settings
Downloading and installing the app is going to undergo a slightly different process than typical Fire Stick apps. To begin the download and installation process, you’re going to need to access your Fire Stick settings. These settings can be found by clicking on the tab with the gear icon.
2. Access the Developer Option
After accessing your settings, you’ll want to scroll down to the “My Fire TV” tab. Once you’ve entered this tab, you’ll need to find the “Developer” options. In this tab, you’ll find the settings that allow you to disable or enable the ability to download unofficial apps onto your Fire Stick.
3. Turn on ADB Debugging
The ADB Debugging function on a Fire Stick is meant to help get rid of electronic bugs and glitches that happen over time with the device. ADB, short for Android Debug Bridge, is the most common and most effective ADB debugging used in your Fire Stick.
Turning this function on, if it isn’t already, is important as you’re going to be downloading an app that isn’t an official Fire Stick application.
4. Turn on Apps From Unknown Sources
You’re also going to need to be sure to turn the toggle to on at the “Apps from Unknown Sources” option. Without this function being turned on, you won’t be able to download or access the Apollo Group TV application. Both the ADB Debugging and Apps From Unknown Sources toggles can be easily found within the Developer tab.
5. Return Home and Access Downloader
Once you’ve toggled those two settings to “On,” you can return to your home screen and access your external Downloader. To do this, you can either use a voice command to ask Alexa to take you to the Downloader, or you can type it into the search bar.
Once you’ve found the Downloader, you need to click “Download” and “Open.” After doing this, you’ll see a pop-up with a button that says “Allow.” You’ll need to hit the “Allow” function in order to proceed.
6. Enter Your Downloader Link
Once you’ve allowed the Downloader to run, you’ll be prompted to provide a link to the app you wish to download. Grab the necessary link from the Apollo Group TV website and insert it into the provided marquee. Allow the link a few minutes to download.
7. Install Apollo Group TV
After downloading the Apollo Group TV app, you’ll then be prompted to install it. Once the app finishes with installation, you can click “Open” to launch the app. This may take a few minutes as the app configures to your device and loads up for the first time.
8. Launch and Customize the App
Once you’ve finally finished downloading and installing the app, you’ll be prompted to choose your preferred language. Choose your language and hit the “Next” button. You’ll then be asked to customize how the app looks to you, giving you a chance to customize it to your liking.
Next, you’ll choose your media player and connect a Trakt account before reviewing the app’s suggestions and allowing the app to access your media files. Once you finish that, you’ll be all set to start streaming through the Apollo Group TV app.
