Insignia TVs are great budget options for those who cannot afford to invest in a luxury brand TV or those who just don’t want to overspend on a TV. The Insignia TV is a smart TV that is loaded with streaming functions. Many users download apps and use them on their Insignias. Because of this, users wonder how can they easily install Kayo on the Insignia TV?

Insignia TVs require a third-party device to utilize Kayo. If you want to enjoy this sports app, but do not know how to do it, continue reading to find out which devices Kayo is compatible with and how to use them with the Insignia TV.

A Round About Download

Kayo is not readily available to be downloaded through the Insignia TV’s app store. Kayo hasn’t come out on every smart device yet, but it is working on expanding its reach and range. Currently, you can download Kayo on other TVs, such as Toshiba TVs. If you are a Kayo lover, it is likely that you are wondering about an alternate way to install Kayo on your Insignia TV.

Insignia TVs do not have the Kayo app in its app store. This is because the Kayo app is not yet compatible with this TV. This does not mean that users cannot watch Kayo on Insignia TV. There are many alternative ways to watch Kayo through an Insignia TV through third-party devices.

Before grabbing any third-party device, it is important to know which ones can use Kayo and which ones are compatible with an Insignia TV. Read on to learn more about compatible devices and how to utilize them.

Third-Party Devices and Insignia

The Insignia TV may not be able to download the Kayo app on its own platform, but it can be paired with a third-party device that can download the Kayo app. The most popular options are the Apple TV, the Android TV, and Chromecast. Each of these devices can be hooked up to an Insignia TV and used to stream Kayo. Keep reading to learn how it works.

Apple TV and Insignia TVs

First, a user must install the Apple TV according to its directions to the Insignia TV. When this process is done, the user can then move on to get Kayo loaded onto the Apple TV. To set Kayo up on the Apple TV, follow these steps:

Android TV and Insignia TVs

Another great third-party device is the Android TV. It has similar capabilities to the Apple TV and is also compatible with the Kayo app. Purchase the Android TV, and set it up, so it is working with the Insignia TV. Once it is up and ready to go, follow these steps to get Kayo and stream it:

Chromecast and Insignia TVs

The Chromecast is another popular streaming device loved by tech enthusiasts everywhere.
