7 Best PPV Apps For Firestick

Are you looking for a way to watch PPV (Pay Per View) events on your Amazon Fire TV Stick? There are several apps to choose from.

PPV events are usually specific sporting events, like UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment), and boxing events.

These events don’t often have enough interest to include them in the regular streaming subscriptions. Not as many people are interested in watching UFC as football or basketball, for example, and it can be expensive to license such events.

Therefore, streaming companies typically require members to pay extra per event, hence the name PPV.

In this article, you will discover the best PPV apps for Fire TV Stick.

Quick Summary

The best PPV apps for Fire TV Stick are:

  • Paramount+
  • ESPN
  • Hulu
  • TNT Sports
  • TrillerTV
  • DAZN
  • SportsFire

You might have to use a VPN for some content.

You can watch PPV events for free on your browser using a site like MMABite. I recommend using the Amazon Silk Browser.

7 Best PPV Apps For Firestick

1. Paramount+

Paramount+ from Showtime is the best place to watch PPV content on Fire TV Stick.

You can order PPV content, such as boxing and MMA fights, without a subscription required – just pay for the content you want to watch.

It also offers shows, series, movies, and sports content. With Showtime PPV, you can watch special events like boxing matches and other martial arts matches.

Note that Showtime has moved its sports programming to the CBS brand.

You can download Paramount+ on Fire TV Stick from the Amazon App Store. Once you do that, you can launch the app, create an account, and confirm your Amazon billing info to start searching for PPV content.


ESPN is one of the best places to stream PPV content from the UFC.

If you’re looking for a way to watch UFC Fight Nights on your Fire TV, download ESPN from the Amazon App Store. All of the important fights are available on ESPN.

I’d like to stress that you will need an ESPN+ subscription to be able to buy PPV content on ESPN. If you don’t subscribe to ESPN+, PPV content will not be available for purchase.

However, another option is purchasing the PPV package, which includes access to the next UFC PPV event as well as an annual subscription to ESPN+ for the year. This costs around $135; check this page for updated information.

UFC events are available from the UFC Event Main Card on ESPN after logging in. You can also check the UFC schedule on ESPN in advance, before signing up, so you know which fights will be available for streaming.

Early Prelims and Prelims do not require an ESPN+ subscription. They are not included on the UFC Event Main Card on ESPN.

If you purchase the PPV event within 15 days after streaming, you can also stream replays on demand. Once again, you will need ESPN+.

3. Hulu

You can actually watch PPV events on Hulu as well. For example, with the ESPN+ add-on for Hulu, you are able to purchase PPV events directly from the Hulu app on your Fire TV.

You can also purchase PPV events on Hulu if you currently have the Disney Bundle, another add-on for Hulu. You can learn more about the Disney Bundle here.

In any case, if you already have ESPN+ for Hulu (or the Disney Bundle), you don’t need to sign up to any other websites, as you can purchase PPV directly on Hulu.

4. TNT Sports

TNT Sports is one of the best places to watch PPV fights on Firestick. Some of the biggest boxing matches and WWE sagas can be followed through TNS Sports.

Whether you enjoy watching boxing, UFC, or WWE, the TNT Sports Box Office has all the content you are looking for. All the big fights (and some not so big ones) are available from TNT Sports.

Note that officially, TNT Sports PPV events are only available in the UK and Ireland. Don’t worry, though; if you are in the United States or Canada, you may still be able to watch by using a VPN for Fire TV.

5. TrillerTV

TrillerTV is a streaming service that streams live sports, including boxing, pro wrestling, and MMA, in addition to other sports.

There are over 1,000 live events every year streamed on TrillerTV, and there are over 10,000 hours of on-demand streaming that you can stream at any time.

One of the cool things about TrillerTV is that it incorporates PPV events from many sources, such as ESPN, Showtime Boxing, Impact Wrestling, and more.

With a TrillerTV+ subscription, you can also watch content that is not available elsewhere, such as bare knuckle boxing. Bare knuckle boxing is boxing without gloves, and it’s not as easy to find as regular boxing matches.

Grappling matches are also available with a TrillerTV+ subscription. Independent wrestling from organizations such as MLW (Major League Wrestling) and GCW (Game Changer Wrestling) is available with TrillerTV+ as well.

For MMA, you have Fusion Fight League, Fight2Win, and many other alternative MMA promotions.

Certain live events require an additional PPV purchase. However, unlimited replays are available with your purchase, which is another benefit of TrillerTV+.

As you can see, you are not limited to the big promotions, such as the UFC alone, like you are on other PPV apps. TrillerTV is best if you are a hardcore combat sports fan and like to watch alternative promotions.


DAZN is a sports streaming service that is available in the United States but based in England. It offers a monthly subscription option as well as one-off PPV events.

It offers live and on-demand streaming of various promotions such as Matchroom Boxing, Golden Boy Promotions, Naciones MMA, and PFL (Professional Fighters League).

You can also watch major fights via its PPV offerings. It has a great lineup of boxing, MMA, and other sporting events.

DAZN airs over 50 fights every year from major promotions.

The exact content that is available will depend on your country, but you may be able to sidestep regional restrictions by using a VPN.

7. SportsFire

Sportsfire is a Fire TV app. It allows you to watch UFC and boxing PPV content.

However, it’s not available on the Amazon App Store. Instead, you need to download it from the SportsFire website as an APK file.

You can then install it on your Fire TV Stick. Later in this article, I will provide a short overview of how to install third-party APK files that are not available on the Amazon App Store.

In any case, SportsFire offers a great user design, and you can find lots of great PPV content on it. However, it can sometimes buffer or lag when the servers get overloaded.

SportsFire is entirely free to use. However, certain content may be restricted to certain geographical areas.

How to Download APK Files on Fire TV Stick?

Some apps are only available as APK files. An example of one is SportsFire, which is the one I recommend.

However, you may come across other APK apps offering pirated PPV content. I always recommend exercising caution when downloading these apps.

Make sure you download them from trusted sites. As an example, you can download the SportsFire APK directly from the SportsFire website; a link was provided above.

However, other APK files might only be available on software sharing sites like Softonic. The problem is that many of these sites are quite sketchy, and it’s hard to trust them.

Some of these APK files might be bundled with adware, malware, or bloatware.

In any case, to download APK files like SportsFire on your Amazon Fire TV Stick, you will first need to enable third-party downloads in your Fire TV settings.

Here is how to do that.

First, you will need to ensure Developer Options are not hidden. Here is how to enable Developer Options:

  1. Go to your Fire TV Stick settings.
  2. Tap on “My Fire TV” or “Device & Options” or “Device & Software.”
  3. Click on “About.”
  4. Find the name of your device, and click on it seven times in a row, until a message appears that Developer Options have been enabled.

The next step is to head to these Developer Options and enable installations from unknown sources. Here are the steps you will need to do that:

  1. Go to your Fire TV Stick settings.
  2. Tap on “My Fire TV” or “Device & Options” or “Device & Software.”
  3. Click on “Developer Options.”
  4. Find the “Apps From Unknown Sources” option and toggle it on.

Congrats! You can now install apps from unknown sources. However, there is one more thing you need to do.

You can’t install APKs directly. Instead, you need to use the Downloader app.

The Downloader app is available from the Amazon App Store. Simply search the Amazon App Store for “Downloader” and find and install the app.

Once you have the Downloader app, you can enter a download URL to download an APK file.

Another useful option is Apps2Fire. Apps2Fire is an app that allows you to transfer applications from your Android phone to your Fire TV.

Download the app from the Google Play Store. You can then transfer apps that you have downloaded on your Android device to your Fire TV.

Which VPN Should You Use on Fire TV Stick?

Often, PPV content providers will have regional restrictions on which content you can watch. You can often get around these restrictions by using a VPN.

It’s important to note that this is not a foolproof method. Some streaming providers have methods that can detect VPNs and block them, although that sometimes depends on which VPN server you use.

VPN providers often offer several servers which you can connect to. Some streaming providers maintain a blacklist of these servers, which they can detect if multiple people are connecting from those servers.

In any case, here are the best VPNs to use on Fire TV.


My favorite is ExpressVPN. I use it frequently, as it’s cheap and affordable.

It also has a wide range of servers across different countries, which allows me to stream content that might only be available in specific countries.

In addition, I often find that content is released in some countries earlier than in others, so connecting to countries in certain regional markets allows me access to new episodes in my favorite series faster.

The only downside of ExpressVPN is that certain servers are sometimes slow or overloaded, resulting in connection issues.


Another VPN, which I consider to be among the top VPN providers, is NordVPN. NordVPN is well-known in the industry.

It’s incredibly safe and fast. It also allows you to switch between TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) and UDP (User Datagram Protocol).

With over 6,000 servers in over 100 countries, you can access content from any regional market. With servers in 111 countries, to be exact, it offers slightly more options than ExpressVPN, which offers servers in 105 countries.

Practically, though, there’s not much of a difference in terms of unlocking regional restrictions between the two.

How to Watch PPV Content Without an App on Fire TV?

Usually, the PPV apps listed above require you to purchase each PPV event separately. That can end up costing a lot of money.

Not only that, but many of these apps only allow you to purchase PPV content on top of an existing subscription. For example, to watch PPV events on ESPN, you must not only pay for an ESPN+ subscription but also buy each PPV event.

Fortunately, there are many free options out there, but they are usually streamed on independent websites.

For example, one of my favorite places to watch UFC and MMA streams is MMABite.

These events are usually aired live. However, you will need to watch it in a web browser, not on a downloadable app.

Fortunately, you can do that on Fire TV Stick as well. I recommend using the Silk browser from Amazon. The Amazon Silk Browser is free to use, fast, and offers a great user experience on Fire TV.

Once you have downloaded the Amazon Silk Browser from the Amazon App Store, you can watch MMA fights, live, on MMABite.

There are plenty of other sites that show live MMA and UFC fights as well. You can simply type “live MMA streams” into Google to find alternative websites.

Similarly, for boxing matches, check out Boxing Streams.

However, if you use one of these free sites, I highly recommend keeping a list of 3-5 that you can use as backup options.

In my experience, these sites often lag or freeze in the middle of fights, and if you don’t have a backup site loaded and ready to go, you might miss out on important moments of the fight.


There are plenty of PPV apps you can use on Fire TV, including ESPN, Hulu, and TrillerTV.

You will usually have to pay extra for these PPV events, possibly in addition to an existing monthly or annual subscription.

However, there are free options as well, such as SportsFire. In addition, you can use a free site like MMABite in your browser.

To get around regional restrictions, try ExpressVPN or NordVPN.
