You’ll need to sideload the UnLinked app on FireStick because it is not available in the official Amazon App Store. If you are new to the FireStick ecosystem, the term “sideload” may sound too technical for you, but trust me, it’s as easy as shooting fish in a barrel. 

To make the installation process easier to follow, I am going to split it into two sections. The first section is about preparing your FireStick, and the second is about installing UnLinked. So, without any more delay, let’s do this.

Section 1: Preparing Your FireStick to Download UnLinked

To sideload any app (including UnLinked) on Fire TV devices quickly, we need to have an app called Downloader. Available officially on the Amazon AppStore, the Downloader app lets you install third-party APKs and other files easily. To get it, here’s what you need to do: 

1. Select the Find option on your FireStick home screen.
