YOUR INTERNET ACTIVITY IS BEING WATCHED
ReviewVPN cannot attest to the legality, security and privacy of the applications discussed on this site. It is highly recommended that you use a VPN service while streaming or using Kodi.
Currently, your IP 126.96.36.199 is visible to everyone and your Browser is being tracked by Advertisers & ISP Provider.
Here are the main reasons why you must use a VPN:
- Your activities are hidden from your ISP, the government, and from the apps you are using.
- You can access additional movies and TV streams.
- ISP attempts to throttle are thrwarted thus reducing buffering issues.
- Geographically restricted content like Netflix and Hulu can be unblocked.
A VPN works be replacing your ISP-assigned IP address and creating an encrypted tunnel. We recommend the no log service offered by IPVanish. It works well on a Firestick and offers the fastest possible speeds.
We really like the look of Nova TV. They have started strong and rolled out some good functions like easily being able to get subtitles, as well as change the color, size, and font of them.
Adding in premium services early on is always a good indication of the developer’s intention. Often developers will wait a few months before adding in new functions to test the water first. This developer seems to be committing early and it’s paying off.
Though we know it’s a clone, we love the minimalist design, there are only 4 sections:
- TV Shows
The Calendar is a direct nod to Terrarium and the Library is essentially your favorites.
You can navigate movies and TV shows by the sections above the titles which include:
Nova TV is one to watch.
Multiple Languages Support
- It supports more than 80 Languages all-in-all
- This feature also works like Real-Debrid. Having two premium file hosts will yield more results compared to having none at all.
Categories for TV Shows/Movies
- Western, War and Politics, Talk, Soap, Sci-Fi and Fantasy, Reality TV, News, Mystery, Kids, Family, Drama, Documentary, Crime, Comedy, and Action and Adventure.
- Tabs for TV Shows, Movies, Library, Calendar, and Settings
Trakt is one of the best ways you can keep track of your favorite TV shows and movies.
This feature allows you to go to the exact point where you left off without having to skim through the video.

How Does the App Work?
As with most of the free movie apps, Nova TV uses scrapers to find content on the major cyberlockers (think RapidGator and Mega). The actual movies are not hosted in any format by the Nova TV developers. They simply provide links.
This detail is what allows the app to remain in the grey area.
Minimum Version Required
Any Android device that has version 4.1 and above.
Nova TV is compatible with Amazon Firestick, Fire TV, Android, NVIDIA Shield, and Xiaomi devices.
Can I download Nova TV on iOS?
No. iOS does not allow the installation of third-party apps on its platform.
Is there Nova TV for PC?
Yes. But you will need to install an android emulation like Noxx or Bluestacks first.
Afterwhich, launch a browser and type in any of the following:
https://reviewvpn.com/nova (for the official version)
https://reviewvpn.com/novaaf (Ad-Free version)
Just be sure to tweak the settings of the emulator to allow the installation of apps from unknown sources.
Is it safe to use?
Nova TV is very safe to use and install on your device.
Are there Ads?
Yes, ads usually appear after you close a video or click the back button. We recommend that you use an ad-blocker app if you have little patience for ads. We tested the app with Adguard and that worked well.
There have also been many ad-free versions of the app that were modded after the official release. The challenge is that the app is in such frequent development, the ad-free versions are often a version behind the official version. This isn’t a big deal if you don’t mind a popup at the start saying to upgrade the app since the older versions typically work fine.
To try the most recent ad-free version, you can type in on the Downloader App https://reviewvpn.com/novaaf.
Is There a Premium Version?
No, there is no premium version whatsoever.
Is There an Official Website?
The official website is www.novatv.app. You can go to the website to download the latest version of the app.
What is the Development Team Like?
The development team is very committed to maintaining the quality of the app.
The Real-Debrid, Trakt, and Premiumize integrations are proof that they are invested and will stay for a long period of time.
They have a Facebook Fan Page which you can visit for updates. If you have complaints, you can send them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How Long Has it Been Around?
Nova TV is pretty new on the block. It has been around since 2019.

Nova TV is really an amazing app to have on your device.
What sets it apart from most streaming apps is its integration to Real-Debrid, Trakt, and Premiumize which makes your viewing experience more convenient.
Also, the assortment of content to choose from will actually glue you to your seat and will make you want for more.
There are minor setbacks like subtitles not working properly, movie links take a while to load, and having no LIVE TV, which we find very tolerable.
The good outweighs the bad for Nova TV. If the developers continue what they are doing, Nova TV will keep its place as one of the best apps for free movies and TV shows.
