Getting Started – Support & Updates

In the Downloader app, select the favorites section and click our saved URL. That should navigate to a page with a link to this page as well as a link to the files/apps download location.

if you do not have a favorite stored, use the browser function in downloader to browse to:


In that page, select Support to get to this document, or Files for the downloads.


If you choose to de-register the device from the default Amazon account and register it under your own, you will have to re-install some of the sideloaded apps.

Cinema APK is a top-rated Android app for movies and TV shows. 

This app paired with a low-cost real-debrid subscription is the only app you would need for on-demand viewing.

With hundreds of hours of streamable content and an endless content line-up, Cinema APK is one of the must-have entertainment FireStick apps.

You can also pair it with Real-Debrid to get higher-quality streams.

  • Easy to use
  • Tons of movies & shows
  • Numerous genres and categories to choose from
  • Trakt & Debrid integration
  • 4K content
  • Multiple working links

*CinemaHD is the number one go to app for streaming movies and TV episodes. Enable Trakt.tv to keep track of your watching history and setup favorites. For premium, high quality video links, subscribe to Real-Debrid. Premium video links will show up in yellow on any app.

Kodi (with Crewnique or Skeleton Crew build)

Kodi is an open-source application for various platforms, and you can sideload it on your Amazon FireStick and Fire TV. The included build contains dozens of streaming apps within Kodi for any type of viewing need. Kodi is bloated however and we normally recommend the apps listed in the index which serve all of the same function with better results.

Devices shipped after June 2023 use the Skeleton Crew build.

*Kodi users are advised to use a VPN due to heavy online surveillance worldwide.


IMDb is owned by Amazon. This media house allows Amazon FireStick users to access IMDb TV or Freevee for free. 

IMDb TV gives you access to officially licensed movies and series from many top production companies in the US. This includes Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), Sony, and Warner Bros Studio. 

IMDb TV is only available in the US. However, thanks to virtual private networks (VPNs), you can unlock it in any country.


  • Tons of free movies and shows
  • No subscription required
  • Can be unlocked with a VPN


If you are a cord-cutter and like to watch TV channels on FireStick, OLA TV would probably be one of your first choices.

This app offers a massive collection of satellite channels; dozens of them are in English from the USA, UK, and Canada.

Just pick a category and choose the channel you want to watch.

Ola TV is one FireStick app you must have if you are into live TV streaming.


  • Hundreds of live TV channels
  • Remote-friendly interface
  • Lightweight

LiveNet TV

Live NetTV lets you watch many of your favorite satellite channels for free.

With a big roundup of the US, UK, and international channels and a FireStick-friendly interface, this app is one of the best options for watching live TV.

There are various categories to stream the TV channels, including Sports, Entertainment, TV Shows, Movies, Lifestyle, Kids, and more.

The app also added the video-on-demand section for movies and TV shows. The on-demand section in this app is lacking.


  • An extensive library of cable TV channels from around the world
  • User-friendly interface


VUit is an app that provides about 200 local and national channels across many different domains. On VUit, you can stream documentaries in addition to watching the news, sports, and business programs.


Casting content from Apple devices, be it a MacBook or iPhone, is not a straightforward process like for Windows. It requires you to download an app called AirScreen on FireStick. Apple devices (OS X and iOS) support AirScreen’s AirPlay technology for screen mirroring.


 If you are looking for an app with an endless collection of movies and TV shows, you may want to try BeeTV. This app has a vast content library that you can binge-watch for hundreds of hours, and you may still have plenty of left unstreamed.

BeeTV, like many other on-demand services, does not host any content of its own. Instead, it acts as an aggregator and pulls the streaming links from various sources on the internet.

The app also features Real-Debrid sign-in, which helps the app fetch higher-quality links.


  • Simple, user-friendly interface
  • Huge library of movies, shows, and more
  • Various genres and categories
  • Trakt & Debrid pairing available
  • 4K, 1080, 720, SD links
  • Lots of streaming links

Enhanced Features 


Trakt is a FREE online platform that integrates with Kodi and dozens of apps and keeps track of what you are watching.

This tool records your watching activities and helps you find new content based on your history. However, Trakt is more than just a record keeper. It also lets you connect to people from around the world who share similar interests.

Trakt does not only keep a record of what you have already watched but also helps you create a watchlist of everything you want to watch. 

Trakt is a free service and is highly recommend. Set up your account at the link below. There is also a companion mobile app available.



Real Debrid is a premium multi-hoster. In other words, it is a premium link provider.

Apps fetch multiple streaming links for videos, such as films and episodes. In addition, most addons offer free links. However, the quality of free streams is usually not up to the mark.

The free links sometimes have buffering issues or offer low-resolution playback. Real Debrid is often considered the solution to this issue.

Real Debrid adds numerous high-quality links. With these links, you typically experience buffer-free streaming in high resolution (up to 4K.)

The same applies to the FireStick apps. While you may watch content using the free streaming links, they may not always be reliable. However, when you pair the supported apps with Real Debrid, your viewing experience enhances dramatically.

Real-Debrid is a paid service available at: 



Don’t confuse TiviMate with an IPTV provider. TiviMate is an IPTV player that allows you to integrate third-party IPTV services with M3U links, Xtream codes, and Stalker Portal. You need an IPTV service that supports one of the three integration methods and is the most reliable live TV (IPTV) app with a very nice program guide.

This is the best IPTV interface and is recommended for use with our IPTV service. The pp channel guide and customization options are second to none!

Without using a VPN, you could be subject to:

    • Online surveillance and monitoring by your ISP, Government, and even third parties like hackers and cryptocurrency miners. That puts your privacy in grave danger!
    • ISP’s Internet Throttling (which targets the video streamers) results in slow streaming and buffering issues. This ruins your entertainment experience!
  • Content geo-restrictionsThis limits your access to content only to a certain location!
  • Legal hassles while streaming through popular third-party Kodi add-ons and apps like Cinema APK, Live Net TV, and more. You don’t want someone looking over your shoulder all the time!

Thankfully, you can easily overcome all of it by using a VPN for FireStick / Fire TV. A VPN or virtual private network will mask your IP address and online identity, allowing you a hundred percent privacy.

The lowest cost VPN service for use on streaming devices is ExpressVPN.

Based in the British Virgin Islands, ExpressVPN is an all-around VPN for FireStick. It has consistently featured as the fastest VPN in various reviews, and our tests concur. With over 3,000 servers across over 90 countries and more than 160 locations, ExpressVPN gives you plenty of connection options. 

The best option for use on multiple devices/platforms is NordVPN.

With over 5400 servers in nearly 60 countries, NordVPN is an all-around VPN that provides a fast and reliable connection.

It also offers dual-layered security, which reroutes your connection through two servers, allowing enhanced security.
