fuboTV first launched as a soccer streaming app only, way back in 2015. For two years, they streamed every major soccer event only for $7/month per user. Soon their CEO David Gandler realized the potential and decided to take some risks.
And in 2017, fuboTV added entertainment channels and expanded its sports channel options. Now their channel collection includes the likes of ESPN, Disney, beinSports, MLB Network, NBCSN, and many more. They also have the credit of being the first-ever live-TV service to stream a full sporting event (2018 Soccer World Cup) in 4K HDR.
Their latest venture included launching a Sports Network, which provides the latest sports news as well as hosts plenty of original shows too.

Register For fuboTV
Before you download and install the fuboTV app in your Firestick, it’s better to check out its pricing and plans and register yourself. There are three main plans on offer for every region and one special plan for a Spanish audience only.
Every plan offers a 7-day free trial, except for the Latino Plus.
The Starter plan- priced at $64.99 per month- offers 114 channels, 250 hours of digital video recording, and can stream content on three screens simultaneously.
The Pro plan gives a bump to the DVR storage hours and allows ten screens at once. Only for $5 more. As they themselves say, it’s the best plan for sports-loving families.
Then, there’s the Elite Plan. For $79.99, it has 160 channels + 46 entertainment channels. The DVR storage and the number of screens stay the same as the Pro plan.
If you want to stream in Spanish only, you can go for Latino Plus. At $32.99 a month, you can watch every CONMEBOL soccer match and get access to 37 channels that stream hundreds of sporting events. It only allows two screens at once.
Whatever plan you choose, the video quality is 4K, and the streaming is buffer-free. But, if you stream using VPN, then the VPN you use will affect the performance.

Again, no worries, there is a solution for this problem too. A bit more complex, but it works in all fuboTV supported regions.
How To Get fuboTV On Firestick/FireTV – Aptoide App
For Firestick users outside of the USA, this is the only way to get fuboTV access.
Aptoide is a third-party store to download apps for smart TVs and set-top boxes. It has over 2500 apps, and all the apps are free to download as well.
We will guide you to install Aptoide on your Amazon Firestick, and then we’ll give you a walkthrough of how to download the fuboTV app from Aptoide.
The process is a bit long, but seeing as it’s the only way to enjoy fuboTV on Firestick outside the USA, it’s worth it.
But first, you’ll have to allow Apps From Unknown Sources on your Firestick TV. Here’s how that’s done:
- Go to the Firestick Settings, and open My Fire TV.
- From the next screen, open Developer Options.
- You will see two options; ADB Debugging and Apps From Unknown Sources.
Now turn on Apps From Unknown Sources, like in the image above. (You might see it as Install Unknown Apps depending on your region and OS version. But, it’s all the same).
What this does is prevent the OS from hindering the installation of apps from sources other than the Firestick TV Amazon store.
Once you do this, it’s now time to install Downloader on your Firestick TV.
- On the home screen, search for Downloader.
- Once you hit search, this is what you’ll see next.
- Click on Downloader, and click Get on the next page.
- Once the download is complete, click on Open.
Once it opens, you’ll see the following screen:

Aptoide app will automatically start downloading on your Firestick TV. After the download is complete, you’ll see something like this:
- Hit Install, and within a few minutes, you’ll have access to all Aptoide apps.
Note: Check out this detailed guide to tackle any problem while downloading or installing Downloader.
After going through these two prerequisites, it’s now time to download the fuboTV app.
Here’s an image of Apotide’s home screen.
- Open the Aptoide App, and click on Search.
- Search fuboTV and find the right one from the list.
Note: The green icons on the side imply that these apps are from a trusted source, hence completely safe and legal to use.
- Now clicking on fuboTV will initiate the download.
Once the downloading completes, the Firestick TV will ask you whether you want to install this app or not.
- Click on Install, and within a few minutes, fuboTV will be ready to launch.
- Open the app, sign in, and start watching your favorite sports.
That’s all. That’s how easy it is to get fuboTV on Firestick, Fire TV, and Fire TV Cube. Because all three of these devices run the same OS, the process is more or less the same. You might see some differences in the UI, but don’t let that confuse you.
