There is a Android APK you can try side loading however depending on your firestick it could be as old as Android 7

Google ?

In all seriousness I use apkpure and never had problems with their files. It says Android 4.2+ so it should install on the firestick. Be aware the interface may be designed for touchscreens so you may need a keyboard / mouse attached to the firestick or it might with the firestick remote control phone app.

Have sorted it. It was the age of my firestick. Upgraded to a 4K one and Windscribe is now a native app.

I had tried google for apk links but turned up nothing - is there a website that lists them all I missed?

Trying NordVPN and ExpressVPN on Amazon’s Firestick to watch blackout MLB games. In order to make it all work I have to uninstall MLB app, chose my server location, then reinstall MLB app. This is a nuisance. Anyone have suggestions for smother service?

My router has a openvpn client and can route traffic from specific devices, that way the device doesn't know it's using a VPN.

Not sure about sport but express vpn on firestick and cube is perfect for HBO max. I was usin* Apple TV before but kept freezing every 20 minutes. Express vpn app on firestick is perfect. I just chose a US location and all my US apps work fine

How do you get US apps on the fire stick?

I have 5 sticks in the house. One is set up as a UK account. The others I set up a US Amazon account, no payment details needed. Then signed in with this account so I could download HBO max and other US services

Downloading ExpressVPN or Nord vpn app alone won’t let you download apps like HBO max. This is only available on the US store when you are logged in as a US user. That’s why I set up a US account. I use my Apple TV to watch my UK prime stuff.
