Hi Everyone, I am Poppy! In this tutorial, I will take you through the detailed instructions to install Strix on FireStick and Android TV box. These instructions can be used on all Fire TVs, Android TVs, NVIDIA Shields, Smartphones among others.
Strix is a brand-new streaming app for live TV, movies, tv shows, and more. It brings us access to several Live TV channels from different countries such as the USA, UK, Canada, France, Spain, and more. There are also various categories like sports, kids, religion in the live tv section. It has separate sections dedicated to movies and TV shows as well. Apart from that Strix also has an Adult section for the users, which can be password protected.
Strix provides good quality streaming links on its own. However, the real-debrid integration feature within Strix will truly change your overall streaming experience with much higher quality links.
Strix looks like a promising app, therefore I am also adding it to our Best FireStick apps for 2021. Since this app offers a decent lineup of live TV channels, it is also part of our List of Best Live TV Apps and APKs for FireStick.
