Heads up

We received a KlowdTV box to try out for free so that we could bring you the most detailed review possible. Though we love free stuff, it doesn’t affect the way we write reviews.

Pros and cons of KlowdTV


  • A wide selection of TV channels available in the US. There are over 70 channels available in the US on KlowdTV with thousands of TV shows to watch.
  • Specialty channels are available, such as live content. For example, if you love watching soccer, KlowdTV offer beIN Sports, a channel entirely dedicated to soccer. The channel bring you the latest news, live games, updates and commentary 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


  • Limited number of TV channels available worldwide. In the Worldwide package, there are only nine TV channels available for viewing.
  • TV and Apps were listed on separate screens in the menu. Several services such as Google, YouTube and Hulu were listed on both the TV and Apps tabs, which was confusing because we couldn’t tell what the difference was between each and why we needed to access them differently.
  • Easy to accidentally renew. As you are required to enter your credit card details to start the free trial, it is easy to forget to cancel the subscription before the regular subscription begins. If you are unhappy with the service, make sure you cancel before the free trial ends so that you won’t be charged.

Our experience with KlowdTV

We received a KlowdTV box to try for free, plus one month of services. Here are our thoughts on:

  • Setup. It was super easy — see our unboxing video above to see exactly how simple the process was. We had it out of the box and hooked up in less than five minutes.
  • The remote control. Even though the remote looks daunting like it could control a spaceship, we found it quite convenient that it came with a keyboard and a touchpad option. Anyone who has experience using the Search feature on AppleTV or Netflix knows how time-consuming inputting letter by letter until you find what you need.
  • The menu. The menu was easy to navigate and see all of the services. It comes with fewer streaming channels pre-installed than AppleTV, but the important ones — YouTube, Amazon, Netflix, Hulu — are there. One aspect that confused us was why the TV and Apps were on separate screens, especially since services like Hulu qualify as both. You’ll see in the video above how several services are on both tabs such as Google, YouTube and Hulu. We couldn’t tell what the difference was between each and why we needed to access them differently, which was annoying.
  • Apps. We struggled somewhat to understand how the Media Center, Lightning, FileExplorer and Downloads work. With AppleTV, purchases for new items are done within the main streaming channel — there is no separation of TV and Apps, so we weren’t quite sure how to use this section. Since KlowdTV is mobile-friendly, these areas are for downloading and playing media straight from your device through your TV.
  • Watching live TV. We don’t watch a lot of live TV in our house, but we do love live sports. KlowdTV offers a few sports-specific channels, but unfortunately we’re less interested in soccer or the hunting channel than we are in watching NFL and MLB.

What devices is KlowdTV compatible with?

If you have one of these devices, you can stream KlowdTV content:

All compatible devices support playback in standard definition (SD). You can also access high definition (HD) content from some channels and selected devices at 720p or greater.

    is klowdtv down for good? I get the following Error 522 Ray ID: 51f6fc7759e6c88f • 2019-10-02 13:22:37 UTC

      Hi John,

      Thanks for reaching out to us. KlowdTV is still available with no announcements of closure on their website or social media accounts. An error 522 means that there’s been a problem on the server end of things, so it may just have been a temporary problem on their end.

      Hope this helps!

    Still can’t get KlowdTV on my smart LG tv. I have emailed tech support and received no reply other than the first night when he said he would get back to me. Five days have gone by. Sent 8 emails and nothing yet. My trial will end soon and I’m lost to what to do.

      Hi Frank,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I’m sorry to hear about the trouble you are having.

      To help you further, can you tell me what error you are exactly experiencing? This way, I might be able to identify the solution to your problem.

      A common cause of the problem could be a poor internet connection. Make sure that you have enough internet bandwidth. Check as well if your smart TV is connected to the Internet.

      If all else fail, you might try to continue getting in touch with them. If they don’t reply by email, then try to contact them through their Facebook or Twitter account.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

    Can we live stream OAN through our Apple TV? It is not a new Apple TV. Second generation. We want to be able to watch it on our TV.

      Hi Patricia,

      Thank you for reaching out to Finder.

      One America News is available on the AppleTV but would only work with the 4th generation. It would not work with older versions for the AppleTV. Hope this helps!

    We subscribe already to monthly KTV… We would be interested in having local news and broadcasts of sports that are on common stations nationally. We live in a national Forest area…will we get reception of the live local programs and sports on the national broadcast stations? We do not have a roof antenna or reception box. We just have Roku box and internet.

      Hi Dawn,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      An antenna isn’t required for you to stream KlowdTV. Roku box, Internet connection, and a TV would be enough. The reception in your area would depend on your Internet connection. If your connection is strong, then you wouldn’t have trouble in streaming KlowdTV. Moreover, if the plan you purchased includes national broadcast stations and local programs, then you should be able to watch your needed shows.

      If you need more personalized advice, it would also be a good idea to directly get in touch with KlowdTV’s customer support.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Hi Lanny,

      Thanks for your inquiry

      I’m afraid there is no information if Fox will be added to KlowdTVs roster. You may regularly check the page above for updates and new content. You may also check their site regularly for updates.
