Amazon Fire TV and Android TV Apps

They’re finally here! Since we launched in June, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV have been among the most requested apps. We hear you!

After lots of hard work and some courageous bug fighting, we’re happy to announce that the VidAngel apps for Amazon Fire TV and Android TV are now publicly available! You can find them on the Amazon Appstore and Google Play starting today.

Now you can watch & filter your favorite streaming accounts however the bleep you want right from the comfort of your couch!

We’re excited to get these into your hands and look forward to your feedback on how we can improve.

Best,

How to install VidAngel on your Android Phone

EDIT: VidAngel Beta for Android is now on Google Play! You can find it HERE.

We have been alpha testing our Android app internally for a few weeks, and we are ready to get the beta into your hands–here’s how to do it:

(If you already know how to install an app outside of Google Play, follow THIS LINK to download the app. If not, follow the instructions below!)

1. First you need to allow your phone to install apps from outside of Google Play. Go to your phone settings and then to security.

2. Once you are in your security tab, check the box “Unknown Sources”. When a confirmation box appears, click “OK”.
