Installing Helix TV IPTV on a FireStick
Here’s what you need to do:

Attention FireStick users!
Governments and ISPs are constantly monitoring your online activities, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick can cause serious problems. Your IP is currently visible to everyone. I highly recommend you to buy the best FireStick VPN to hide your IP address and transfer your favorite games safely.
Personally, I use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN on the market. Not only is it easy to install on any device, but it also comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. And if you are not 100% satisfied, you can always get your money back. ExpressVPN is also currently offering an additional 3 months free for an annual plan!
Here are the reasons why using a VPN is essential at all times.

On the next page, before clicking Next, you can change your subscription with the following two options:
- Choose Invoice run: Allows you to choose one of the following options: monthly, quarterly, semi-annually and annually. I recommend opting for monthly plans. There is no guarantee for these third party IPTV services if they go bankrupt. It is therefore preferable to choose the option with the lowest risk.
- Additional connections : Allows you to add additional connections. You can use Helix IPTV simultaneously on as many devices as you have connections to. The cost of each additional connection is $5.75. You can add up to 3 more connections, giving you a maximum of 4 connections (1 connection is included in the base plan).
See the details on the next page and click the order button.
Fill in the form with your personal details, including your email address.

Scroll down and choose the desired payment method.

Click on Finish order to continue
On the next page enter the payment details and complete the order.
After a successful transaction, you will receive an email with the login details (username and password) for the application assigned to you by the system. You’ll need this information to sign in to the Helix TV app on the FireStick, the Kodi Helix TV addon, or to stream Helix TV online (via your web browser).

Here is how to install Helix IPTV on Amazon FireStick.
Your FireStick / Fire TV is now ready to play your favorite content. But before I begin, let me warn you that everything you send online is visible to your ISP and to the government. This means that watching movies, TV shows and sports broadcasts for free can get you in trouble with the law.
Fortunately, there is a reliable way to hide all your streaming activities from your ISP and the government. All you need is a good VPN for the Fire Stick. A VPN masks your original IP address and helps you bypass Internet monitoring, ISP restrictions, and geographic content limitations.
Personally, I use and recommend ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all types of streaming applications and is very easy to install on Fire TV / Stick.
We do not encourage copyright infringement. But what if you accidentally upload content from an illegal source? It is not always easy to distinguish between a legal and an illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on the Fire Stick / Fire TV, let’s see how you can use ExpressVPN to hide your streaming activities from prying eyes.
Step one: Sign up for ExpressVPN HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. This means you can use it for free for the first 30 days. If you are not satisfied with the service (which is unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step two: Turn on the Fire TV Stick and navigate to Search and then Search.
Step three: Now type expressvpn (without quotes) into the search bar and select ExpressVPN when it appears in the search results.
Step four: Click Download to install the ExpressVPN application on your Fire TV / Stick.
Step 5: Open the application and enter the credentials you created when you purchased your ExpressVPN subscription. Click on Connection.
Step six: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That’s it. Now your connection is secure with the fastest and best VPN for FireStick.

Using Helix TV on a FireStick
First, let me show you the different ways to access Helix TV on the FireStick. Then I will tell you a little about the application.
Later I will show you how to change the default video player.
To access the Helix TV FireStick application
If you know how to access the applications installed on your device, you can skip this section.
You may have noticed the Applications and Channels category on the FireStick home screen. It appears in the second row, just below the Recent Use category.
Installed applications are displayed in the Your applications and channels section of the Home screen. However, you can only see a maximum of 20 applications. If there are more applications, expand the Applications and Channels section.
To extend this range, you must first select it using the FireStick’s remote control. Now go to the first option (on the left) Show All and click on it (this is also the last option in the row).
This is a list of all installed applications. If you scroll down, you will also see Helix TV. Click on Helix TV and start it
You may want to use Helix TV often. So it makes sense to move it to the home screen for easier access. Press the 3-line button on the remote control (menu option) and press Move on the pop-up menu in the lower right corner.
Move Helix TV to the first or second row
It is a way to access Helix TV and other applications installed on the FireStick. Here are some additional options:
- Long press the Home button on the Amazon FireStick remote control. In the window that opens, tap Applications
- Go to FireStick Settings > Apps > Manage Installed Apps > Helix TV > Run App
How to use Helix IPTV
Now we can get started with the application.
This is the login screen when you first open the Helix TV FireStick application. Enter the information you received in your email (NOT the information you created during registration) and click Login.
Message: Check the Remember me box to avoid having to enter login credentials every time you launch the application.
If you have problems with the connection, press REFRESH DNS.
Wait until IPTV Helix TV is configured on the FireStick.
This is the start screen of the Helix TV application after a successful connection.
Here are the options:
Live broadcast: Displays a list of all TV channels supported by your subscription.
Click on a category to display the channel catalog. The preview of the selected channel is displayed on the right. Press the channel to play it in full screen.
Movies and TV series Categories : Here you will find content on demand (VOD). This only works if your subscription includes VOD
Set the EPG: To view them, you need to install the EPG (Electronic Programme Guide). After installation, the name changes to Live with EPG.
Notes: Displays your entry. Select the station you want to record from the station list, long press the station name and press Record to start recording.
Catch up: As the name suggests, you watch catch-up television.
To change the default video player
The Helix TV FireStick application has a built-in video player. That’s good, but not good enough. In that case, buffering problems may occur. That’s why I recommend using an external player like VLC or MX Player.
Read: To install MX Player on the FireStick
Learn how to change the default video player in the Helix IPTV application:
Open the settings on the home screen (the cog icon in the top right corner).
First we need to add an external drive. Click on External disk
Click on Add a player
Select MX Player or another player you wish to use.
Message: You can add multiple players
Press Add to confirm
Return to the settings screen and press Select player.
As you can see, the Helix TV app on the FireStick allows you to select a separate player for each category.
Click the category for which you want to change the player (for example, Live TV) and select the desired player (for example, MX Player).
Now simply press the Back button at the bottom of the screen or the Back button on the remote control to apply the changes.
