Though Stremio for Android is available in the official play store for mobiles, still it cannot be found in the play store for android TV. This is why the installation process will go through a third-party source. This article will show you how to download and install the apk file of Stremio app on your Mi TV Stick device.
The process will take three steps:

- Finally, we will find, download and install the apk file

- ##check## Warning: Stream anonymously
Third-party streaming sources do not host the content they present. Rather, they scrape links from publicly available websites, and such links often offer copyrighted content. This means that you can easily get in trouble for streaming on Kodi. So It is becoming more and more dangerous to stream using a third-party addon on Kodi. This is due to increased efforts by ISPs, governments, and content producers to curb the illegal transmission of copyrighted content.
To avoid legal troubles or any other consequence, always use a reliable VPN. The VPN will encrypt your traffic and route it securely to a remote server of your choice. This way, your ISP won’t be able to see what you are streaming or accessing . You will also get a new IP address that will act as a new layer of anonymity.
