Can I Sideload Peacock on Amazon Fire TV Device?

Episode 1723 (1:16:00)

Ron from California
Peacock

Ron can't watch Peacock on any device that he has, but he's heard he can "sideload" it onto his Amazon Firestick. Is that legal and safe? Leo says yes. It's perfectly fine, but there can be risky security-wise. Android, which Amazon's FireTV is based on, has a setting that he has to enable to allow downloads from something other than the Amazon app store or Google Play. Once he has enabled that, he can install it no problem. Just keep it up to date and don't get it from anyone other than the original developer. APK Mirror is the exception. It's generally safe to download from there.
