SportsTribal TV is a free live sports streaming service that offers tons of live channels covering football, basketball, baseball, tennis, MMA, motorsports, and more. However, it‘s only available in the UK.
In this guide, I‘ll show you how to install SportsTribal TV on a Firestick and other devices using a VPN to bypass the geo-restrictions. With just a few simple steps, you can unlock unlimited access to free HD sports streams from around the world.
An Overview of SportsTribal TV
SportsTribal TV is a UK-based streaming service that offers live streams and on-demand replays of popular sports leagues and events. Here‘s a quick rundown of what you need to know:
- Completely free – no fees or subscriptions required
- TONS of sports channels – football, cricket, rugby, tennis, golf, motorsports, MMA and more
- Live streams and replays – great for catching live games or events on-demand
- HD quality streams– watch events in smooth high-def
SportsTribal has quickly become a go-to for cordcutters in the UK looking for free sports streaming. Unfortunately, those outside the UK are geo-restricted from accessing it.
That‘s where a VPN comes in…
Why You Need a VPN to Use SportsTribal TV
SportsTribal TV strictly limits streams to UK IP addresses only. If you try to use it outside of the UK, you‘ll just get an error message.
A VPN allows you to bypass the geo-restriction by routing your traffic through a secure UK server. This tricks the SportsTribal app into thinking you‘re located in the UK.
I recommend Surfshark VPN – it‘s fast, reliable, inexpensive, and has a dedicated camouflage mode to hide VPN usage from your ISP.
Here are a few other benefits of using a VPN:
- Encrypts your internet connection to keep your streaming activity private
- Allows access to region-locked content worldwide
- Bypasses ISP throttling that can slow down video streams
- Adds an extra layer of malware and adware blocking
A quality VPN is a must-have for any cordcutter. Sign up for Surfshark here to try it out risk-free for 30 days.
Step 1: Install Downloader and Enable Unknown Sources
We‘ll use the Downloader app to sideload SportsTribal TV on our Firestick.
First, install Downloader from the Amazon Appstore:
- From your Firestick home screen, scroll down to ‘Apps‘
- Select the search icon and type in "Downloader"
- Select Downloader from the search results
- Click Download
Once it‘s installed, we need to enable installation of unknown apps in the Firestick settings:
- Go to Settings > My Fire TV
- Select Developer Options
- Toggle on Apps from Unknown Sources and ADB Debugging
This allows you to install apps outside of the Amazon Appstore.
Step 2: Open Downloader and Install SportsTribal TV
Here‘s how to use Downloader to grab SportsTribal TV:
Launch the Downloader app from your Firestick home screen
Click on the browser address bar at the top
Enter the URL:
Press Go to open the SportsTribal TV download page
Once finished, click Install
Select Done when the installation is complete
Downloader will fetch the APK file for SportsTribal TV and install it for you. Easy!
Step 3: Connect to a UK VPN Server
As mentioned earlier, SportsTribal TV only works in the UK. So the last step is connecting to a UK VPN server:
If you don‘t have one already, sign up for a Surfshark VPN account here.
Launch the Surfshark app on your Firestick or mobile device.
Connect to a VPN server located in the UK.
Once connected, the Surfshark app will confirm you have a UK IP address.
With your IP now showing as UK-based, you‘re ready to start streaming!
Step 4: Enjoy SportsTribal TV!
Now just launch SportsTribal TV from your Firestick home screen. It should open normally without any geo-restriction errors.
You‘ll have free access to live sports and replays in HD quality. Everything from football and rugby matches to F1 races and tennis tournaments.
Some of the most popular channels on SportsTribal TV include:
- Pac 12 Insider – US college sports
- Tennis Channel – ATP & WTA tennis
- MLB Channel – Major League Baseball
- NHRA – Drag racing events
- Boxing TV – Boxing matches & news
- The Rugby Network – Rugby union games
- FITE 24/7 – Combat sports (MMA, boxing, etc.)

The streams play smoothly in high quality once loaded. You can browse by sport or use the search to find specific teams, leagues, or events.
And remember – it‘s completely free! Just connect your VPN and enjoy unlimited access to tons of live sports.
If you run into any issues using SportsTribal TV, here are some troubleshooting tips:
Double check that your VPN is connected to a UK server before launching the app.
Force stop the SportsTribal app and clear cache/data before relaunching.
Try manually reconnecting your VPN to refresh your IP address.
Ensure any VPN firewall options are disabled, as this can sometimes block streaming apps.
Restart your Firestick and reconnect the VPN connection.
As a last resort, uninstall and reinstall SportsTribal TV using the Downloader steps above.
