Update 10/08/18 – This is the latest version of the Sky Q app.

I love my Kindle Fire tablets, J has a little one, I’ve got a bigger one. They are cheap, and well built – but it’s not possible to run the Sky Q App on Kindle Fire.

Until now

As standard you can only get apps for the Kindle Fire / HDX from the Amazon App Store. Sky and Amazon are competitors to some extent, so you can’t get the Sky Q App via the Amazon App Store. Most Kindle Fire tablets actually meet the minimum spec. to run the Sky Q app. That means it’s theoretically possible to get the Sky Q App on Kindle Fire with a little hacking.




How to do it

First up, you need to ‘tell’ your Kindle it’s okay to install Apps that aren’t from the Amazon App Store. Do this by going into ‘Settings’ and then ‘Applications’ and switch ‘Apps from Unknown Sources’ from ‘Off’ to ‘On’. Click ‘Ok’ to the warning.

Next up, you need to get the application onto your Kindle. Fire up the ‘Silk Browser’ on the Kindle and head to –

kiphak.es/skyq-apk

This will ask you if you want to download the file to the tablet, you do – obviously. Once it’s downloaded it’ll ask if you’re sure you want to install it, and it’ll list the permissions required. Simply okay it all, and you’ll quickly see the Sky Q App on the Kindle ‘Carousel’.



Fire up the App, and if you’re connected to the same wireless network as the Sky Q box, it’ll connect to it automatically!

That’s it!

In theory you should be able to install and run it on any Android 4.1+ tablet, don’t complain though if it doesn’t work – I can’t guarantee it!

So, all in all, it’s pretty easy to run the Sky Q App on Kindle Fire / HDX!

NB. If you have trouble running the latest version, you can download the old version from here
