Pick TV on Firestick

Pick TV gained a fair deal of popularity in 2020 due to the channel airing free-to-view Premier League football over the summer. Understandably, many football fans wish to watch the channel and many of them have a Firestick as their way of watching TV.

Watching Pick TV on a Firestick isn’t exactly possible. A Freeview app isn’t available via the regular app store, so anyone wishing to watch Pick may need to take out a Now TV subscription. From here, open the Now TV app on a mobile device, then you can cast the Pick channel to the TV.

TV Player and UKTV Play offer UK TV channels on a Firestick. TV Player requires a paid subscription to view its content. There’s no contract, you can cancel any time and it costs £6.99.
