How to start watching TV with TikiLIVE

TikiLIVE as a cable alternative offers cable-quality content for a fraction of the cost. No extra boxes or equipment are needed. Watch right from your TV, or other compatible device with our TikiLIVE app.

Getting started is easy with our step-by-step manual tutorials below:

 

1. Create a TikiLIVE account

The first step is to create your very own TikiLIVE account. This will be used to log into our app as well as keep track of your subscriptions, billings, DVR recordings, support tickets, and settings.

There are 3 different way you can sign up for a TikiLIVE account:

 

2. Purchase a subscription

To gain access to a subscription, you will need to purchase one first. We have 3 different subscriptions to fit your needs and budget. You can see the different channel packages from our offers page.

Here you can also choose add-on subscriptions such as exclusive channels and additional players for even more content. Confirm you have a primary device, then check out using either your credit card or PayPal.

 

3. Login on your primary device

A primary device is required to fully activate your subscription. Without one attached to your account, you will not be able to view the channels. Luckily, a large amount of common devices found in everyday homes are considered primary!

To make sure a primary device is connected to your account, you will just need to log into your TikiLIVE account on the app. Once you do this, your device will be listed under your My Account page where you can see all of your devices.

Once a primary device is attached to your account, you can then add secondary devices like mobile phones and tablets to watch on all at once by using the same process.

 

4. Watch channels from the guide

Once your account is all set up and you’re logged into the app, you can begin watching channels right away!

You may also browse the list of channels and choose one to watch that way as well. You will not be able see what is playing until you access the channel as this option provides a simplified view of our list of channels.

 

5. Record content with the DVR to watch later

TikiLIVE provides a built-in DVR the requires no extra equipment to use. With a cloud-based system, you can record content and watch it anytime from any device.

Note: DVR Storage is unlimited for the time being

 

6. Access the Video On Demand library

TikiLIVE offers VOD options for some channels. Access and watch video on demand content for channels and exclusive content using the On Demand menu from the app’s homepage.

Here is where you can also find some of our add-on content such as Magnolia Selects, Dox, Stingray channels, and more!

 

7. Troubleshoot issues

If you are experiencing issues with your channels, there are a few troubleshooting options we suggest. The first thing our support team will suggest is to run a speed test and check your Internet speeds as this is usually the number one cause of buffering issues.

We highly suggest you connect your viewing device to the Internet via Ethernet rather than WiFi as this will provide a stronger connection and reduce interruptions. To do this, connect one end of an Ethernet cable to your TV, then connect the other end to your modem or router.

You can see our full troubleshooting list in our manual for additional assistance.
