How To Install Swift Streamz – Free Live TV On Fire Stick and Fire TV
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.
For those of you who like to have friends over to watch live sports I would genuinely recommend shelling out the $20 a month for a SET TV subscription and spare yourself any disappointment or embarrassment from buffering or broken links during the games you want to watch.
