What is Firestick?
A firestick is a set-top box that plugs into your TV’s HDMI port and lets you stream all types of media directly from the internet or your home network. It’s a great way to watch live TV, movies, and live sports on your TV without cable.
Yahoo Sports App
This is the official app from Yahoo and provides users with video highlights, news, and full replays for all major sports including baseball, basketball, football, soccer, and more. Users can start their favorite shows from the beginning or jump right into the action of a game in progress. This is perhaps one of the best apps for Firestick users who love watching live sports as there is no other good alternative that offers such features at present time (feel free to share if you know any).
How To Install Yahoo Sports on Firestick?
Step 1: First you will need to install an emulator on your Firestick. We recommend using the BlueStacks emulator. It is by far the most popular Android emulator for Firestick users and offers a great user experience with its own unique interface.
Step 2: Once you have installed BlueStacks, launch it from your FireTV home screen and sign in using your Gmail account credentials.
Once you have signed in, a pop-up will appear on your screen that asks if you want to install the Google Play Store app or not. Select Yes. Now allow some time for all of the Google apps to load before proceeding further. You can select Exit when this process is complete.
Step 3: After installation of the Google Play Store, now it’s time to install Yahoo Sports on Firestick. Launch the Google Play Store and search for Yahoo Sports. Select Install and then Accept.
Step 4: Once you have installed Yahoo Sports, launch it from your BlueStacks Android emulator home screen and sign in using your Gmail account details so that all of your data is synced with this device.
You can now enjoy watching live sports on Firestick by opening up the Yahoo Sports App directly from your BlueStacks home screen. If you prefer, you can also pin the Yahoo Sports shortcut to your FireTV for quick access next time around. Enjoy!
