If you’ve ever attempted to stream anything live online, you’ve probably experienced big hassles and very low quality video that buffers until you go insane. SopCast and AceStream are P2P streaming protocols that promise to make online streaming great again. Unlike regular streams, P2P-based streamings get faster and higher quality as user numbers increase. However, since SopCast and AceStream are based on P2P technology, similar to that of torrents, it is crucial that you use a VPN service in order to ensure your privacy.

We’ve written this guide specifically for Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick owners, but there’s another guide available for Android TV users. There are a few parts to the guide, so read carefully and you’ll have the Plexus addon, along with the AceStream Engine, installed in no time. After you’ve managed to get the AceStream Engine along with Plexus installed, you’ll want to search on Google for “AceStream Search” in order to find updated AceStream identifiers called hashes. We’ve also heard that Reddit is a great place to find SopCast and AceStream hashes.
