I have been using Firestick for more than 1.5 years and one thing that I really miss is the lack of German channels. If you are from Germany or if you are someone who is interested in watching german channels on firestick then you will find it very hard to manage to find an app that can let you watch German channels on firestick.
If you don’t know then let me tell you, on this website, I share tips and tricks related to firestick and many users were requesting me to write an article about the way to watch German channels on fire TV. After struggling for like 2 days I managed to find the app that you can use on your firestick to watch your favorite channels from Germany.
There is one application known as Redbox TV that you can install on your firestick and via this application, you can watch your favorite german channels including Discovery DE, RTL, AXN (German), Pro 7, SAT, Sky channels, etc.
Watch German Channels on Firestick
when it comes to American channels you will find hundreds of apps that let you watch channels from the USA but when it comes to German or Spanish channels on firestick then you will hardly find any app and the reason is obvious, app developers are not interested in targeting small countries and that’s why there are hardly any apps that let you stream German channels on firestick.
But don’t worry Redbox TV is one of the few apps that can help you in watching German channels and not only German but you can stream live TV channels from all over the world. I am personally using this application on my own firestick device and believe me this is one the most stable apps that I discovered.
Now without wasting any further time let’s get to the guide.

Setting Up firestick device to watch German Channels
Now as I already told you we will take the help of the RedBox TV application to watch German channels, since the app is not available on the Amazon app store, we have to download this app from third-party apps such as Downloader or Es File Explorer.
Now to do that first we have to enable apps from unknown sources from the settings of firestick. It is very important to do that otherwise you will not be able to install the app. Below are the steps to enable it.

- Now go to the settings of your firestick and click on the My Fire TV option.
