Pretty much exactly what the title says, can I side load the tvnz android app on to a fire stick?

You can but it requires a bunch of Google Play packages and has an overall poor experience.

 

 

 

You're better off sideloading KODI and then adding the TVNZ add-on

Yep i did try that, but it crashes everytime i click on a show episode to view it, I had a look on the Matt Huismann? site and I am not the only one that's having the issue.

Working great for me on a 2nd Gen Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. I'm using Kodi Leia 18 Beta 2 at present.

Sorry that is Kodi 18 Alpha 2 rather than beta.
