Xumo TV allows you watch over 190 different streaming channels such as news, sports, comedy, music, & fashion channels.
Xumo is a web-based, so it communicates over the Internet via HTTP/HTTPS. You can open the link https://www.xumo.tv/channels on just about any web browser to see the channels of Xumo or you can click the link https://www.xumo.tv/discover to discovery what you can currently watch on Xumo. Below is an image taken in Vivaldi web browser and the image above is using Vivaldi web browser but as a link in the menu to work and look like a typical application installed.
If you notice that your channel doesn't load then you will probably need to whitelist or allow it in your adblocker. Make sure that you allow https://www.xumo.tv. For example, if you use uBlock Origin click the shield icon and then click on the blue icon at the top. It should turn grey and white to indicate that you are no longer blocking adds on www.xumo.tv. You may have to click on the refresh button to the right of the icon in order for the channel to load.
Some web browsers such as Vivaldi has a built-in ad blocker that must be disabled too. You can disable it by clicking on the V icon in the upper left corner and click on Settings... from the drop-down menu. Click on Privacy on the left side and then scroll down until you see the Exceptions section. Click the small plus sign in the lower left corner to bring up an Add a New Site to Exception List. Enter https://www.xumo.tv in the URL box and then click on the drop-down arrow and select No Blocking and then click the Add Site button. Also, enter https://www.xumo.tv/channels in another URL box and then click on the drop-down arrow and select No Blocking and then click the Add Site button.
You should now see www.xumo.tv added to the Exceptions list.
You can bookmark the site in your browser or you can add it to your menu so that it looks like an actual application installed. To add it to your menu you'll need to open your Control Center and click on Main Menu under the Look and Feel section.
A Main Menu dialog box should appear on your screen. Select a menu on the left. I created an Entertainment menu to keep my entertainment links and applications organized. After you select the menu click on the + New Item button on the right.
You will see a Create Launcher dialog box appear on your screen. Enter the following information:

Clicking on the XUMO icon in the menu will open the website, but it will display a minimal amount of your browser making it look more like an installed application on your system.
