The following guide will show you How to Install and Use TiviMate APK on Firestick, Fire TV, and Android TV Box.
We provide both a screenshot tutorial as well as a video tutorial with important details for using the application.
This guide also provides set up instructions and features to help you get the most out of TiviMate on your preferred device.
TiviMate is one of the best IPTV Players available for use on any device including the Amazon Firestick.
TiviMate alone does not contain live channels for streaming, however, users can integrate an M3U URL within the app for live streaming.
Check with your current IPTV Service on whether they grant access to their M3U URL prior to going through this guide.
You can usually find this in the support documents or online discussion board that most IPTV services offer for their subscribers.
TiviMate offers both a premium version and a free version of the software.
However, TROYPOINT suggests purchasing a premium account for a much more enjoyable experience.
The premium option includes the following features not available with the free version.
TiviMate Premium Features
- Scheduled recordings
- Custom recurring recordings
- Support for multiple playlists
- Favorites management
- Customizable TV Guide update intervals
- Customizable Panels transparency and timeout
- Customize groups and channels
- Manual Channels sorting
- Turning on the last channel on the app start
- Auto frame rate (AFR)
- Reminder to automatically play channel
- Many More
As you can see, without the premium upgrade, there isn’t much sense in using the app.
We suggest first installing the free app via the instructions below. If you like the app, you can register for the premium version and we cover that below as well.
Below, you will find a screenshot guide for installing TiviMate on any Firestick or Fire TV device.
For those using an Android device such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL Boxes, and more, you can find TiviMate in the Google Play Store.
How to Install TiviMate on Firestick/Android
1. Install the Downloader app from your respective App Store (Amazon App Store or Google Play) and enable Unknown Sources within the settings of your streaming device.
If you haven’t done this yet please refer to the following screenshot tutorial for step-by-step instructions.
2. Launch Downloader
3. Hover over the URL bar and click the select button on your remote to open the keyboard.
4. Type the Downloader Code for TiviMate which is 549628 and click Go.
5. You will then see a redirect page. Wait for the app to download.
6. Click Install.
7. You will then encounter TiviMate Ready to launch! message. Click to Open the app.
Installation is now complete. Enjoy!
How To Setup TiviMate
After the app installation is complete, we can open the app and authorize an IPTV Service for use.
NOTE: Initializing an IPTV Service within TiviMate requires an M3U URL. This can usually be found in your IPTV Service welcome e-mail or by contacting customer support.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We have found that setup within TiviMate will not work if your VPN is turned On. Make sure to turn your VPN OFF prior to integrating your IPTV Service within this app.
After setup is complete, feel free to connect to your VPN to ensure safe streaming.
Follow the steps below to integrate IPTV Service in TiviMate:
1. Open TiviMate App and click Add Playlist
2. Choose M3U playlist.
3. Click Enter URL.
4. Enter the provided M3U URL from your IPTV Service with your account info inserted.
Most M3U URLs require that you input your service username and password.
You will usually see where these go inside the URL as they are indicated by “username=xxxx” & password=xxxx”.
Replace the xxxs with your service username and password.
In this guide, we are using the free Samsung TV Plus M3U URL which provides hundreds of free live channels.
5. Click Next.
6. Wait for Channels to insert.
7. You will then see Playlist is processed message with Channel count and your Playlist name. Click Next.
8. If the EPG URL does not auto import, you can insert it here.
Most IPTV Services provide a separate M3U URL for your Electronic Program Guide. Click Done.
9. Type the EPG M3U URL or shortened bit.ly URL for your TV Guide.
10. TV Guide will import and you are able to start viewing!
It is important to note that many of the features within TiviMate are not available for those who choose to use the free service.
For example, if you try adding a channel or channels to favorites you will be prompted with the following message:
For those who wish to use the free version, simply click Cancel and continue with the TiviMate App.
If you purchase the premium option through the TiviMate Companion app, we can log in for added benefits.
If you need to create an account, you can follow the instructions below on how to do that through Google Play Store.

TiviMate premium costs only $4.99/yr for 5 devices and that includes a 5-day free trial. There is also a lifetime option available for $19.99.

TROYPOINT TIP: I highly suggest reading the details and features guide below that will show you how to get the most out of this awesome app!
TiviMate Details & Features
Upon installing TiviMate, you will immediately notice the unique interface it provides. This varies from other IPTV Service apps and works fabulously.
The menu bar on the left lists your Playlist Categories or “Groups” as they are referred to in the app. These can be hidden, removed, and managed all within the Settings.
This is a great way to eliminate any unwanted Channel lists that you don’t use or need.
Because of the uncertainty of IPTV Services, TROYPOINT always suggests having a backup for Live TV.
With TiviMate, users can integrate multiple services or “Playlists” within the app meaning you can combine two or more Services into one!
This is a great way to ensure your live streaming is always available and manage your favorite channels across multiple platforms.
Navigating this app is a breeze when using your streaming device’s remote. If using a Firestick, the following options are available:
- Select Button: Opens Channel
- Back Button: Shows Groups/Return to Guide
- Left Button: Scrolls to Previous Program
- Right Button: Scrolls to Next Program
- Up Button: Scrolls Up through Channels
- Down Button: Scrolls Down through Channels
- Rewind Button: Scrolls Channels Up without changing the channel
- Fast Forward: Scrolls Channels Down without changing the channel
After playing a Channel, clicking the select button will generate various options:
This includes the ability to view recent channels and quick select as well as re-open the TV Guide with your current channel playing in the background:
The Groups options within TiviMate sets it apart from other IPTV applications. Using this to your advantage is a great way to condense your TV streaming experience.
To edit these, simply open the TV Guide and click the Menu Button (3 horizontal lines) on your remote. Then click Group options:
Select Manage groups
To remove an unwanted or unused Group, simply switch the toggle off:
Only highlighted groups will now be visible on the left side menu bar of the home screen. To adjust the order of these, simply click Manage positions:
Click to highlight and adjust the group position to your preference! We suggest using the Favorites Tab at the top for a personal streaming experience.
NOTE: TROYPOINT recommends adding your preferred channels to Favorites to get the most out of this app. This will enable all navigational features to work within the Favorites “Group” meaning all scrolling and selection will be through your Favorite Channels!
There are a few ways to add a Channel to Favorites.
The first option is to long click when playing a Channel and selecting “Add to Favorites”
Or, if you would like to add multiple channels quickly, simply press the Menu button from the TV Guide to prompt the following options:
Within the Settings are the following provided options:
There are a few options within the app’s settings that are worth checking out. One thing we suggest is enabling the confirmation message prior to exiting out.
This way, you will not accidentally close the app by pressing the back button too many times:
Another feature to note is the auto-update option for the TV guide. This will ensure your guide is always up to date:
For those who wish to use Parental Controls, these can also be established within the Parental controls Category.
This includes setting and using a PIN Number for access. These can be adjusted to require PIN for Playlists, TV Guide, Group options, and more.
Within the Settings option of TiviMate are tons of features and options that will help you get the most out of your Live TV experience.
Adjusting these will help cater the app to your specific preferences. We suggest checking out all of these Categories to ensure the app is set to your liking.
While other IPTV Services and Players fall short when it comes to Closed Captioning, TiviMate does not.
That being said, working subtitles will vary from Channel to Channel within the app.
How To Enable Subtitles:
-Open and play your preferred content
-Long Click the Select button on your remote to open options and choose CC
-Change toggle from “Off” to “Closed captions 1”
-Subtitles will now load for your content
