How To Install Virgin TV Go On Firestick

We all love to relax and unwind with our favourite TV shows and movies after a long day. Virgin TV Go is a fantastic streaming platform that offers a wide range of content, including TV shows, on-demand movies, documentaries, and more. Although Virgin TV Go is not officially available on the Amazon App Store for Firestick, worry not! We have three easy methods for you to sideload the app onto your Firestick, so you can start enjoying Virgin TV Go on the big screen.

Sideloading Virgin TV Go on Your Firestick

While Virgin TV Go is not officially available on the Amazon AppStore, there are ways to install the app on your Firestick. This process is called “sideloading”, which means installing an app from a source other than the official app store.

Before you begin the sideloading process, there are a few things you need to know. Firstly, sideloading involves installing apps from unofficial sources, which can potentially compromise the security of your device. It is important to exercise caution when sideloading apps, and only download from sources you trust. Secondly, sideloading requires you to enable installation from unknown sources on your Firestick. You can do this by going to Settings > My Fire TV > Developer Options and turning on “Apps from Unknown Sources.”

Once you have enabled installation from unknown sources, you can start the sideloading process. There are different methods to sideload apps on Firestick, but we will discuss the three most common methods (plus an alternative method):

Preparation: Get Firestick Ready!

  1. Connect your Firestick to the HDMI port of your TV.
  2. Turn on both the Firestick and your TV.
  3. Ensure your Firestick is connected to a Wi-Fi network.
  4. Go to your Firestick’s Settings.
  5. Find and select the My Fire TV option.
  6. Choose Developer Options.
  7. Toggle ON “Apps From Unknown Sources.”

By completing these steps, you’ve prepared your Firestick to accept applications from non-certified sources.

Note: Turn OFF ADB debugging if the option is enabled.

Now, let’s explore the three methods for installing Virgin TV Go on your Firestick.
