How To Fix “ADDON PUSH Failed” On Stremio

Stremio is a Video Streaming platform that allows you to stream movies, videos, TV series, live tv and web channels.

The platform works with add-on systems that are installed once you have created an account.

You can select add-ons from the catalogue that is present on their website or go to Reddit communities, PimpMyStremio or Stremio Downloader to install other addons.

Stremio can be accessed through desktop apps available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

The app is accessible on both iOS and Android devices. However, the app may not work efficiently on iOS compared to Android because it does not support most of the add-ons.

The add-on system is the most important thing you need to have for Stremio to see the content smoothly.
