In this guide, we are going to download CKAY TV for Android and Firestick device. With IPTV, users have complete control over what they watch unlike in the usual TV where the broadcasters dictate the programming schedule. Another feature of IPTV is that users can access channels from everywhere in the world. The channels available for them to watch are not restricted to a particular geographical area like the case on normal TV.
This new way of watching TV is becoming more and more popular and there is a huge collection of IPTV Service providers to choose from. Most of the providers offer paid subscriptions with the prices changing according to how many devices the user wants to access the service on. A few of the broadcasters offer the service free of charge which is going to be our main focus today.
For users who want to experience IPTV on a budget, CKAY TV is perfect for them. CKAY TV offers LIVE TV streaming for free across an unlimited number of devices. They have a huge library of channels from all over the world. Almost all the channels they offer are available in HD which I find to be very appealing. Moreover, the channels are grouped in categories for easy selection.
Currently, CKAY TV is available as an APK and can be installed on all Android-powered devices like Android TV Boxes, Android Mobile Phones, Amazon FireStick, etc. Windows users can also run the app using android emulators like BlueStacks, NOX Player, etc. In this article, we are going to cover installing CKAY TV on Android devices and Amazon FireStick.
Configuring your device to install CKAY TV
IPTV is a relatively new service and governments are working on ways to restrict it. Some of the content that these IPTV service providers are copyright protected and users could run into legal issues when they stream this content using their legal identities. It is for this reason why it is recommended that users protect their identity when using IPTV services on their devices.
A VPN masks your identity and also handles your domain name requests instead of your internet service provider. This ensures that you remain anonymous over the internet. There is a variety of VPNs out there but I recommend using IPVanish.
To install IPVanish on your Amazon FireStick, follow the following steps:
Go to Home> Click on the magnifying glass icon on the Top left > Type “IPVanish”> Locate the official IP Vanish App on Amazon store> Click Install.
Once the IP Vanish app has been installed, launch the app and log in with your credentials. After that, select a server location and click Connect.
# For Android users, go to Play Store and download the IPVanish app. Once the app is downloaded log in with your credentials then select a server location and click connect.
