What is Ola TV?

Ola TV is another popular and long running free live TV application. It provides over 10,000 live TV channels from all over the world. Due to the sheer quantity of channels Ola TV has, this application is one of the largest free live TV apps available. However, this application is not available from any official app stores. For that reason, it must be sideloaded. It can be installed onto almost any Android streaming device as well as all Fire TV devices.

Is Ola TV Safe?

Some versions of Ola TV can be unsafe i.e. contain viruses or malware. It is therefore recommended you take extra precautions if you are installing applications from unofficial sources.

Is Ola TV legal?

Due to the nature of this application, it is impossible to verify if this application is indeed legal or not. However, it is unlikely that the majority of streams hold the proper licencing for broadcasting the content. In reality, this means you will be unlawfully streaming unlicensed content. Doing so could get you into legal trouble. Accordingly, you may prefer to use this app with a VPN


Your online activity is open to threats and snooping from your ISP, hackers, or governments. For that reason, a VPN can help to protect and defend you against any attacks. Using a VPN can also unblock access to the internet in countries where the internet is censored and can bypass other geographical restrictions.

In order to stream anonymously, stay protected, and unlock the internet, I recommend using NordVPN.

On account of this, we do not condone the streaming of copyrighted content. Therefore, check your local laws for streaming content online before doing so.

What Content Does Ola TV Have?

Live TV

Ola TV provides thousands of live TV channels from all over the world in many different languages. The app looks a little different to others in the way that it is organised. Hundreds of numbered tiles on the main screen provide access to different servers so if one goes down there are others in place. Selecting a tile from the main screen leads you into categories that are different for each tile. Select a category and then you’ll be able to view the channel options. Due to the number of channels and how the app is laid out, you do have to put a bit of extra effort into finding what you are looking for. It’s worth adding channels to your favourites for quick access.

An example of categories includes 4K, 24/7, movies, sports, US, UK, Canada, India, Australia and many more.


A popular feature of the old Mobdro application was the 24/7 channels. If you’re a fan of these types of channels, Ola TV has loads of them. They work pretty well too! It’s just a matter of finding them and adding them to your favourites for quick access. 

EPG (Electronic Program Guide)

Some but not all channels are able to provide an EPG (Electronic Program Guide). When you are viewing a channel list, highlight over any channel then press and hold the centre button on your remote to pop up the EGP. You’ll find full programming information of what’s on now and next. However, not all channels are able to provide an EPG. If your selected channel does not, you’ll see a message at the bottom of the screen “This channel does not have an EPG.”

How to Install Ola TV
