Swift Streamz is a standalone app that allows you to watch most national TV stations live on your Fire Stick, Fire TV, and Android devices. Swift Streamz is relatively new player in the IPTV space, and it seems to have veteran developers behind it.
What channels can I watch with Swift Streamz?
Swift Streamz claims to offer over 700+ channels from all around the world. They offer most channels that you would find in a premium cable package in the United States, as well as most Western countries. I am not as familiar with channels that come standard in other parts of the world.
This sounds too good to be true. Is it?
Well, kind of. We did experience buffering issues on some channels, and most channels are served up in non-HD quality. This is fine for passive TV watching but can be kind of annoying when watching a sporting event or other live TV event.
That’s why we suggest shelling out $15 for Gears TV, a far more reliable app.
BEST UNOFFICIAL SWIFTSTREAMZ ALTERNATIVE
GEARS TV *EDITORS CHOICE*
While not technically free, Gears TV is an app with 500+ live TV channels. It includes league passes for live streaming every NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB games as well as all PPV events for only $15 a month.
In our experience, Gears TV was the app that felt the most like a real replacement for cable. It collects all of the popular channels and major sports in one place and provides reliable, high-quality streams for a fraction of the price. Reliable streaming in an easy to use app has quickly made Gears TV the number one choice for streamers, cord-cutters, and sports fans with Fire TVs.
Swiftstreamz is free, but its connections can be much shakier and less reliable. Gears TV is much more reliable (and costs so little) we think it is well worth the investment.

How To Install Swift Streamz on Fire Stick and Fire TV
Before proceeding, we highly recommend streaming via a Virtual Private Network (VPN). By connecting through a VPN, all of your internet traffic will be encrypted and hidden from your internet service provider.
Our favorite, most reliable VPN service for streaming media on Fire Stick and Fire TV is IPVanish. For more information about protecting yourself with VPN as well as an instructional video on how to install IPVanish on your Fire TV please see our article here.

We found the display ads a little more annoying than they are in Mobro, but the video quality and live sports section made it okay. We look forward to a premium option where we can pay a small fee every month to not see the on-screen adverts.
