YouTube TV on Fire TV

In 2017, Google launched a new entertainment service called YouTube TV. Offering free live TV, you can stream TV channels from more than 70+ networks. The service also has a cloud-based DVR with unlimited storage to record the favourite media for offline access. The service comes at a rate of $49.99/month with the support of 6-simultaneous connections. Despite the rift between the Amazon and Google, users can install YouTube TV on Fire TV/Firestick with the help of the sideloading method. To sideload android apps on Amazon Firestick, you need to turn on the Apps from Unknown Sources on the settings.
