How to install Kick on Smart TV: Step By Step

-

Kick doesn’t stop growing. The platform that began as another of the many alternatives to Twitch is gaining more and more ground in the world of streaming . And with their benefit policies for content creators, they have managed to get several of the most important Twitch streamers to migrate to Kick.

Well, if your favourite streamer is now streaming on Kick and you don’t know how to watch it on your TV, then you’ve come to the right place. And below, we will explain how to install Kick on a smart TV and all the possible methods to watch Kick on televisions with Android TV, LG, Samsung and Roku devices.

How to install Kick on a Smart TV: step-by-step

The first thing you need to know is that, for now, Kick does not have an official app for smart TVs . However, it has already been confirmed  that an application for TVs and consoles will arrive shortly.

But you don’t have to wait for the TV app to be released to watch Kick on your smart TV. And there is an unofficial application that is installed on Android TV and Fire TV with which you can watch Kick Live shows. Next, we explain how to install it and we also reveal other methods with which you can watch Kick on TV.

Stream Companion, an unofficial app that enables watching Kick on TV.

Stream Companion is a third-party application with which you can watch live streams from Kick. It is an open source app that is very easy to use and is compatible with Android TV, Google TV and Fire TV . And although its interface is very simple, we assure you that it has everything you need to watch a live kick.

It has the “Search” button, with which you can search for your favourite streamer and once you find it, you just have to click on “Watch” to watch the live stream . You can also watch the VODs using the “Videos” button . And, as you can see in the image below, the streams are played with the live chat , so you won’t miss anything.
