The following guide will provide you with several options to Watch YouTube Without Ads on the Firestick, Fire TV, Android devices, and more.
You can watch YouTube without ads by using SmartTubeNext, YouTube Vanced, NewPipe, and various YouTube alternatives.
Millions of YouTube users are getting tired of advertisements within the platform, especially around election time.
Although there are several YouTube alternatives available, watching YouTube without ads is possible by installing a few applications.
The options below are also mentioned in our troubleshooting guide on YouTube Videos Not Playing.
The following guide will provide options for watching YouTube without ads that work on the Amazon Firestick 4K.
Since these ad-free YouTube apps are not available in the Amazon App Store or Google Play, they must be side-loaded on Fire TV and Android devices. See the guide below for more information.
These same apps also work for those using Fire TVs and any Android device such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL Boxes, Chromecast, Android TV Boxes, phones, tablets, and more.
Important Note: If you are looking to watch US-based content on YouTube, you must be located in the United States. If you live outside the US, you will want to Unblock YouTube through the use of a VPN.
Using a VPN to “unblock YouTube” will allow you to change IP Addresses to a US server so you can watch YouTube wherever you are!
For more information on “unblocking websites” like YouTube, we suggest viewing our guide below.
How to Watch YouTube Without Ads
The options listed below for watching YouTube without ads were tested on an Amazon Firestick 4K. However, these apps will also work on any Fire TV/Android device.
SmartTubeNext is the best option to watch YouTube without ads. This is an improved clone of the once-popular “Smart YouTube TV” that works even better!
You will notice the user-interface almost replicates YouTube. The main categories are Home, Gaming, News, Channels, Subscriptions, History, Playlists, Settings, and more.
SmartTubeNext works on any Amazon Firestick, Fire TV, Android TV Boxes, phones, tablets, and more.
See our full SmartTubeNext tutorial below for more information and how to install this app.
YouTube Vanced APK is another well-known option to watch YouTube without ads. It’s important to note this app is optimized for Android tablets and mobile devices only.
More specifically, this APK is available for installation on Android phones, tablets, Fire HD tablets, and Stock Android TV Boxes.
Important Update: YouTube Vanced was forced to shut down by Google. See the video below for installing this app before it’s too late.
NewPipe is one of the latest modded clones of YouTube to hit the scene.
Although this app doesn’t work as well as SmartTubeNext, NewPipe is still a great way to watch YouTube without ads on any device.
NewPipe is available for installation on any Android-powered device such as the Amazon Firestick, Fire TV, Android TV Boxes, phones, tablets, and more.
