Looking for some cool apps to watch free live TV with Indian channels on your Android smartphone. Then today DigitBin has come up with the best of the list consisting of free streaming apps for your Android devices. Few of these Apps do not stream the TV shows from their servers but search web directory to stream TV channels online. Below is the comprehensive list of best Android apps to watch live TV online over your Wi-Fi or cellular network.
Many online streaming apps on the internet are deceiving in nature and they just try to inject adware into your device.
These apps ask for permissions which are not required for their normal functioning. For example, apps may ask for contact permissions which of course is not required to stream your favourite channels.
The apps which are not downloaded from reliable sources like Google Play Store or Amazon Store could be potentially harmful and malicious for your phone and also to you as a user by harassing the privacy.
So, I recommend you to grant the permissions which you think is best suited for the functioning of the app. You can find permissions under settings on your Android device.
Note: Make sure you have enabled unknown sources on your device. To do so simply go to Settings > Security and just right check Unknown sources.

Data Security and Privacy Concerns
The free streaming Apps which are not the legal content providers are always on the critical due to data breach and privacy invasion issues. The cyber rouges are always in a search for innocent netizens who could fall prey. The use of free non-legal streaming services may also a be a crime in your region due to litigations imposed by law.
How to Be Safe?
Some of the App listed above have a lot of programming with copyright infringement under its hood, you may be under the scanner by your government for streaming the content which is not bided by the law. But looking at the nature of the App, there may be very few who could resist themselves from using. You can stream safely by using a VPN service. There are a number of VPN Apps and services covering all types of devices.
What is VPN?
VPN is a type of online services which hides your data by sending your web usage to another secure location. It forms a secure tunnel to provide end-to-end protection. Therefore, your ISP will not know what you’re up to. In other words, it sends your data to a 3rd party country, making it difficult for the service provider to determine the internet behaviour of the user.
- If you wish to use the apps anonymously then you can try any VPN services like OperaVPN which is available on Google Play Store.
- In case any of the streams show any error or issues while loading then also you can try any proxy servers like VPN to stream the content.
- If the app is not working or causing some issues then I recommend you to Clear Data & Cache of the app to fix it.
