  2. I was able to get the zwift app over to my television, but it says the TLC 4k television is not compatible with the app even though other sideloaded apps were able to launch.
    Everything is up-to-date as far as I know.
    Is there some kind of trick to getting zwift to launch?

  3. Links for both Downloader and ES File Explorer – both original and updated links – are faulty. Has anyone actually had success in getting Zwift up and running on their Firestick based on the guidance in this article?

    1. Hi Chris! Thanks for commenting.

      As I tried the links work fine on both the methods. Do clear your firestick cache and give it a try. Or you can also try installing the previous versions of the app from the link.

    2. Use you es explorer and edit name of downloaded file by putting .APK at the end of it (long press on the file, in internal storage/downloaded on your es explorer then edit and add the .APK)
      Now when you open in downloader it will give you option to install

  4. hi I managed to download the file, but when selecting “Open” the Firestick said “No Handler for this app” – all help welcome
