Why is it recommended to have a VPN for FireStick?
Before you get into the process of installing the Spectrum app on firestick, I highly recommend that you get a VPN. Having a VPN is recommended because without any VPN solution, your device’s IP address is easily exposed to the Internet. Therefore, anyone can take advantage and track your activities without you even realizing it.
Also, since you’ll be watching copyrighted content for FREE using the Spectrum TV app, there can be legal issues if your IP is so easily available to trace. Therefore, using a VPN is the best option before proceeding with this.
The right VPN solution can increase your real identity and make it difficult for someone to track your online activities and data. With a VPN, you can even change your device location and go to restricted content on your favorite apps and websites.
If you’re looking for VPN recommendations, I’d suggest looking for a reputable VPN brand like ExpressVPN or NordVPN; both are very secure and provide fast services that will suit your requirements.
How to install Spectrum TV app on FireStick?
By default, Fire TV will not allow you to use third-party apps on your device. To do so, you will need to enable the permission to install apps from unknown sources manually. You can do it by following the next step:
- Go to firestick settings.
- Click on Devices or My Fire TV
- Now find and enter Developer Options
- Click on Apps from Unknown Sources and turn it on.
Now that you have enabled the permission to install apps from unknown sources, let’s see how we can install the Spectrum TV app.
Common Issues Firestick Users Face
1. Spectrum TV app doesn’t show all TV shows
This is a very common issue faced by many new Spectrum TV users. We have seen that this issue is mostly found on video-on-demand channels. Parental control settings cause this problem. You can solve this problem by disabling parental controls on your firestick, which might be blocking some of the app content.
2. Can’t stream from the Spectrum TV app
Sometimes streaming on Spectrum TV becomes very difficult and works very slowly. This is because the Internet connection is slow. So, you may want to fix your slow connection if you can’t watch content on the Spectrum app.
