How to Install Set Orientation on FireStick (Quick Steps)

Hi, this is Nick. In this post, I will show you how to install and use Set Orientation on FireStick and Fire TV devices, including the 2023 FireStick 4k & 4K Max, FireStick Lite, Fire TV Cube, and more.

Why Use Set Orientation on FireStick?

You can sideload any APK on a FireStick, even if it is primarily designed for Android Smartphones or touch devices. However, such APKs are not necessarily guaranteed to work on FireStick.

The APKs for smartphones usually run into two problems:

  1. They are not compatible with the FireStick Remote.
  2. They force the app into portrait display while the TVs support landscape mode.

If it’s the first problem (remote incompatibility), you can easily handle it with the Mouse Toggle app. However, you will need the Set Orientation app if it is an incompatible display.

In other words, you need the Set Orientation app to fix the display of the unsupported apps.

Your IP address is exposed.

If we can see it, so can they. We are not tracking or logging your IP address, but they can.

You don’t want your Government or ISP monitoring your streaming activities. I strongly recommend getting a VPN right now to make your streaming experience safe.

ExpressVPN is the best VPN all around. It is safe and, at the same time, the fastest VPN you will get. Installing and setting up ExpressVPN on FireStick, Mobiles, Computers, and More is super easy.

ExpressVPN gives you an unconditional 30-day money-return guarantee. You can request a refund anytime within 30 days.

I have no reason to believe that the app is unsafe. The following scan result from VirusTotal validates my confidence.
