How to Install ES File Explorer on Firestick/FireTV

ES File Explorer was previously removed by Amazon from the Amazon Fire TV app store's default display.  I was one of the many who believed that installing ES File Explorer on FireTV and Firestick was now difficult.

Yet alas!  On Fire TV, we can still install ES File Explorer without using any sideloading software. 


ES File Explorer is an incredibly popular file manager app for the Android platform. This versatile tool can be used to manage storage, sideload FireStick apps (paid subscription required), connect to cloud drives and more. 

I think ES File Explorer is a must have for FireStick  and a must if you want better control over your device.

What Is ES File Explorer?

As I said, ES File Explorer is a file manager app that also works as a great side tool for FireStick.  
ES File Explorer is available from the Amazon Store. I have provided  installation instructions later in this guide. 
This app allows you to download third-party APKs on the page using web URLs. However, to sideload apps, you need a premium subscription that costs $9.99 per month. 
You can also connect  FireStick to PC using ES File Explorer to download APKs from the page and even transfer files back and forth. Again I have given step by step instructions to download programs from the page using this program.
