I purchased the subscription and start enjoying more than hundreds of live channels from all over the world. However, that was the old time when I purchased the subscription, now they have updated the price and added some benefits as well.
The reason why I am telling you this is because many firestick users don’t know what IPTV service they should go for and according to me Area 51 IPTV on FireStick is really a good and reliable option. I am still using Area 51 on my firestick and there is no single issue I faced ever. The channels provided by Area 51 are of different categories like Entertainment, Kids, Movies, Lifestyle, Sports, News Fashion, etc. You can also run Area 51 on your favorite IPTV media player.
