When should I update?

If you ever want to know whether your tv box/Firestick is due for an update, log in to our website and have a look at either TV Box Downloads or Firestick Downloads.

Both pages list all of the apps we’re currently using along with their version numbers and the date they were last updated.

You can compare version numbers for the apps that are on your tv box to the ones listed on either download page, which will tell you if you have the latest versions of the apps. Having the latest apps is very important to getting good streams.

If there’s an app that’s on your tv box/Firestick that’s not on the download page, it means we removed that app because it wasn’t performing well anymore.

If you see an app on the download page that’s not on your tv box, it’s a new one we added.

You can get the latest apps and Kodi add-ons one of three ways,
