Xumo is a free to download and free to use Live TV and on-demand streaming platform. This service offers a decent collection of cable TV channels including Fox Sports, NBC News, Bloomberg, and a lot more. You can also explore a big library of on-demand content including movies, news programs, sports content, and more.

Xumo is completely free. It does not require any TB subscription. You don’t even need to register for a Xumo account and log in to the app. Install Xumo on FireStick and start streaming right away.

The app is ad-supported. Therefore, you will run into commercials from time to time.

Attention FireStick Users

Governments and ISPs across the world monitor their users' online activities. If you use third-party streaming apps on your Fire TV Stick, you should always use a good FireStick VPN and hide your identity so that your movie viewing experience doesn’t take a bad turn. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone.  

I use ExpressVPN which is the fastest and most secure VPN in the industry. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon Fire TV Stick. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don't like their service, you can always ask for a refund. ExpressVPN also has a special deal where you can get 3 months free and save 49% on annual plan.

Here are the reasons why you must use a VPN all the time.

How to install Xumo on FireStick

Xumo is currently available in select countries, including the United States. It has been geo-blocked in other countries.

If Xumo is available in your country, you can download it from the official Amazon App Store.

If it is geo-restricted in your region, you can still sideload it from Aptoide, the alternative app store for FireStick. You will need to use Xumo with a VPN in geo-blocked regions.

I am going to show you two methods to install Xumo on FireStick as follows:

  • Method 1: Install official Xumo app via Amazon App Store
  • Method 2: Sideload and unblock Xumo in the geo-restricted countries

Method 1: Install Xumo app from the Amazon App Store on FireStick

If you live in the US or any other country where Xumo is officially available, here are the steps to install this app:

1. Go to the home screen of FireStick (or any other Fire TV device you use)

2. Navigate to the top and select the Menu bar

Now, select the lens icon in the top-left corner and open the Search option

search firestick

3. Type the name of the app – Xumo

Xumo appears in the search results as you type the name

Click it

search xumo tv on fire tv stick

4. Click the Xumo app icon on the next screen

open xumo app from search results

5. Now, go ahead and click the Get option if you are installing the Xumo FireStick app for the first time


Click Download if you have installed the Xumo app previously

6. FireStick will download and install the app

It will take a minute or probably two

7. When the app has installed, you may click Open and start using Xumo on FireStick

You may also access the app later from the Your Apps & Channels section on FireStick (demonstrated later in the guide)

Method 2: Sideload Xumo on FireStick to unblock it in the geo-restricted regions

Skip this section if you have already installed Xumo TV on FireStick using Method 1 above

I will now show you how to manually install the Xumo TV APK if you can’t get it from the Amazon Store. We will use the alternative app store called Aptoide.

While you can sideload the app onto your device, to use it you will need a VPN.

A VPN will hide your current location and let you unblock content on the Xumo TV app. In fact, with a VPN, you can unblock content on other streaming platforms as well, such as Netflix and BBC iPlayer. In addition, VPN provides you security and lets you stream safely. It maintains your online identity and privacy.

ExpressVPN is one of the best VPNs for streaming. It works with nearly every device including Amazon Fire TV. You can get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plan. ExpressVPN also offers a 30-day risk-free money-back guarantee (no questions asked) in case you change your mind.

How to install Xumo TV addon on Kodi

If you like Kodi better than APKs, you can install the Xumo TV addon on Kodi and stream your favorite channels and on-demand content.

Another benefit of the Xumo Kodi addon is that you can stream this service on Windows and Mac computers. Xumo currently does not support browser streaming and does not have any app client for these devices. In fact, with the Kodi addon, you can use Xumo on Linux, Raspberry Pi, and other Kodi compatible devices as well.

Xumo Kodi addon goes by the name Xumo.TV. It is available through the official Kodi repository called Kodi Add-on Repository.

Follow these steps to install and use Xumo Kodi addon:

1. Click Settings on the home screen of your Kodi application

Cog icon in the top-left corner

kodi home page

2. Open the option Add-ons on the next window

Features of Xumo App

Here are some important features of Xumo:

  • Xumo has a big collection of Live TV channels and On-demand content including tons of movies
  • You can sort and filter content in various popular and familiar categories including Most Popular, News, TV & Movies, Sports, etc.
  • The app features many popular channels including NBC News, Fox Sports, Today, Newsy, Bloomberg, TIME, USA Today, CBSN, and many more
  • Xumo TV is completely free and one hundred percent legal
  • It streams content in Full HD quality
  • Xumo is available via official channels on a range of devices including FireStick, Android TV, Android & iOS Mobiles, Roku, and more
  • This service also has an official addon for Kodi called Xumo.TV

Xumo is a good app, but it has some drawbacks too.  For instance, the interface for TV devices like FireStick could have been better. The app doesn’t stay on the home screen for long. It starts auto-playing the last selected TV channel or movie. This could be a bit frustrating.

The service is ad-supported. You will see regular commercials during playback. However, I think it is only fair as everything on Xumo is free. The service is paid for by the ads.

Xumo does not offer app sign-in. Therefore, there is no way to sync the viewing data (such as favorites, history, etc.) across devices.

Wrapping Up

Xumo is a decent Live TV streaming option with tons of channels and loads of free content including on-demand movies. This app is available via the official Amazon App Store for FireStick and Fire TV line of devices. It is also hosted on Google Play Store, Apple App Store, and Roku Channel Store.

You can easily install Xumo on FireStick and start streaming your favorite content in no time. If Xumo is not available in your country, you can sideload it using the method I have provided in this guide. You will need a VPN to stream content in the geo-blocked regions. How do you like the Xumo app? Let us know through the comments section below.
