This in-depth report on TeaTV will provide you with important information that you need to know about this app on Firestick/Android devices.
Is TeaTV safe to use? Is TeaTV legal? How do I install TeaTV? We will answer those questions and more in this article.
The reason why we ask legal questions is due to the fact that TeaTV isn’t available in popular app stores such as Amazon App Store or Google Play. This is usually a warning sign.
Since this app can’t be installed through an app store, it must be sideloaded which we illustrate in the screenshot guide below.
TeaTV is an APK streaming application that provides users with numerous free Movies & TV Shows for viewing.
TeaTV offers a wide array of content and features an awesome interface and tons of Categories to choose from.
Not only can you view Movies and TV Shows, but TeaTV also provides some Live TV options.
For these reasons and more we have included TeaTV in our Most Popular APKs list.

Is TeaTV Safe To Use?
Before we install this, I first want to scan the Android APK installation file with VirusTotal.
Here is the screenshot of what that scan found.
VirusTotal did find one suspicious file within the APK which looks like something pertaining to ad-ware.
We always preach about the importance of using a VPN with questionable applications such as TeaTV.
When we see flagged files in VirusTotal, a trusted VPN is pretty much required to protect your identity and security.
Now, here are the steps that we went through to install through the official TeaTV Website.
The free TROYOINT app includes over 50 of the best streaming apps including the one(s) you’re about to install on this page.

Warning! Protect Yourself With IPVanish VPN
Most cord-cutters use a IPVanish VPN and rightfully so.
The free streaming applications, addons, and IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.
Without a IPVanish, your IP Address is being logged.
Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.
Your current identifying IP Address is 18.104.22.168
When you use IPVanish, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.
IPVanish VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet.
This will prevent your Internet Service Provider, app/addon developers, government agencies, and any 3rd party from logging what you’re accessing online.
The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is IPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy.
It’s important to use a VPN that is fast since we are streaming large HD files. Its also crucial to find one that keeps no logs of what their subscribers access while online.
Setting up IPVanish VPN on your streaming device is simple!
Step 1 Register for an IPVanish VPN account by clicking the link below.
This exclusive link provides you with a hefty discount.
Step 2 – From the home screen hover over Find.
For those of you using Android TV devices, you can easily install the IPVanish app directly through Google Play Store.
Step 3 – Scroll down and click Search.
Step 4 – Type in “Ipvanish” and click the first option.
Step 5 – Click the IPVanish VPN app.
Step 6 – Click Download.
Step 7 – Once the IPVanish app installs, click Open.
Step 8 – Enter your IPVanish account information and click Log In.
You will get your username and password when you register for an account.
Step 9 – Click Connect.
Step 10 – Click OK.
Step 11 – Success! Your identifying IP Address has changed and you are now anonymous.
Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.
Congratulations! You are now protected by IPVanish which means everything that you stream or access through your Firestick or Android TV Box is hidden from the rest of the world.
If you ever need to stop the VPN service, simply re-launch the application and click the DISCONNECT button.
You can now setup IPVanish VPN on all of your other Internet-connected devices. You can use IPVanish on unlimited devices!
TeaTV works great with TeaTV’s internal TPlayer that is built to work with this streaming application.

TeaTV Features & Details
As stated above, upon installing TeaTV you will notice a user-friendly interface full of content.
When searching for and selecting content on a Firestick or Fire TV, it is important to have your mouse toggle feature enabled.
Many functions in TeaTV require this and it will make your experience more enjoyable!
By using these you will have access to tons of high-quality links and can sync your favorite content across multiple platforms.
I highly suggest real-debrid for any streaming app as it will provide you with numerous links in 720 and even 1080p High Definition.
How To Search In TeaTV – after you click the search icon, you go to a page that appears to be blank usually with an ad. Highlight the back button in top left screen which looks like an arrow pointing to the left. Then click the right arrow on your remote and that will place you in the search box. Then, click the OK button to pull open the keyboard.
After selecting a title to view, you will see the option to Watch trailer. This is one of my favorite features of TeaTV as it allows the user to preview content prior to watching.
You will also notice the “Similar Movies or TV Shows” category shown below the description. This is a great way to find related movies or TV shows that might peak your interest.
To play content, simply click the Play button located at the top of the poster of the chosen title.
This will prompt TeaTV to scour for sources and ultimately give you numerous options to choose from. These will vary in quality and size so be sure to select one that works best for you.
After you choose to play, TeaTV provides a few different options for viewing. You can play with subtitles, play with different video players, and even download the content.
The following link lists the Best Public Domain Movies which you can download or stream without any copyright issues.
Is TeaTV Legal?
It’s impossible for TROYPOINT to determine whether these unverified applications hold the proper licensing.
If and when an application is deemed illegal, we notify our users immediately and update reports on our Website to reflect that information.
At first glance, it would appear that TeaTV is distributing copyrighted works without consent.
You will notice in the example above that we used the free public domain movie, Night of the Living Dead as an example. Works such as this are not protected by copyright laws and may be downloaded, streamed, and shared without any legal ramifications.
