Amazon has provided its amazing streaming device for cord-cutters that have plenty of streaming options. In this article, I am going to provide you with a complete step-by-step guide on how to install Cinema HD on Firestick. This is the most popular application that is available for the past many years.
However, for a few days, I am getting a lot of requests from people asking for a way to stream movies for free, and after getting these emails, I then thought to make a guide on it. To get this app, I would suggest keep reading this article until the end and don’t miss any step or any information here.
It is because here you will learn everything related to the app, for instance how to use this app, update it, get subtitles, and many more. This guide will also help you get a cinema app on different models like Fire Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick 2nd, 3rd Generation, and even with the latest FireTV Stick lite.
What is Cinema HD on Firestick
Cinema HD is a free app used to stream Movies, TV Shows, Anime, and documentaries on Firestick 4K, or other devices. Since the app is not costing anything but in return, you will see advertisements here. The user interface of Cinema HD is compatible with the TV and works fine with the remote control.
This application was released a few years ago, but the developer is still managing it and keeping it up to date, where he added some new features. With this app’s help, you can easily select Movies by Year, Genre, recently released, etc. which makes it easier to find the relevant content in no time.
Furthermore, the developer released the Cinema HD v2 in which he added a new section to choose web series from Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Video. In this way, a user can easily find the newly released web series for that service, and they don’t need to pay any additional money for each service.
This app is simply amazing and getting improved day by day; as for now, it supports subtitles from various languages. It also supports 3rd-party media players like MX Player or VLC for fast streaming. Other than this, it supports the integration of Trakt, Real-Debrid, AllDebrid, and Premiumize to get fast and premium links.
Can You Get Cinema HD APK on Amazon Firestick
As we know, this is an amazing streaming application to watch movies or TV shows free of cost, so the question remains: Can you get Cinema HD apk on Amazon Firestick? Well! the answer is quite simple, Of course, you can get the Cinema HD app on your Amazon Fire TV device.
But keep in mind that the process is not as simple as it looks because this app is not available on the Amazon App Store. The reason is each app that offers links to Movies or TV shows is strictly forbidden. In this way, the developer hasn’t uploaded it to the App Store as it will be removed instantly.
But since Amazon is an Android-based streaming device, which makes it easier to get apps even outside the app store. This is possible because of the feature jailbreaking that most of you may hear before. Basically, this term is used to enable a feature on a FireTV that lets us apps downloaded from the internet.
Installing an app from outside the app store is known as sideloading because we are not installing it directly but using the 3rd-party source to get it. Despite this, with the help of sideloading, you can get many other apps like Cyberflix, TeaTV, Live Net TV and many more that are similar to Cinema HD.
How To Install Cinema HD on Firestick
After reading the above instructions, I am sure you learned how useful this app is and surely want to grab it for you. If this is the case, then your wait is finally over because now we are going to move toward the installation process. As I told you earlier, this app is not available on the app store, which means you don’t need to skip any step.
Now to download and install an app that is not available on the Amazon App Store requires you to enable a feature known as the Apps from Unknown Source. This feature is quite similar to what we see on an Android device that let us install applications downloaded from the internet outside the App Store.
To enable this option, you simply need to follow these quick steps:
- Press and hold the Home button for a few seconds and then select Settings.
- Now move across Settings and then open My Fire TV.
- From there, scroll down and go to Developer Options.
- After this, hover to the Apps from Unknown Source and then press the Select button.
- A message will appear on the screen for confirmation; select Turn on to enable it.
This will enable the installation of Unknown Source which means we are now ready to move towards further steps. However, if you want to learn more about this feature and want complete instructions with the screenshot, then follow this link: Enable Apps from Unknown Source of Firestick.
Ok, so after enabling this option, we are now required to install an application known as the Downloader. This is a free app for Fire TV users that works as the Download Manager to grab apps using direct links. Despite this, it also has a built-in web browser feature to get apps from the website if the direct link is not working.
The app is officially available on the Amazon App Store, and we first need to grab it as without this, we cannot download any app. It is because after the ES File Explorer which was once known as the best way to sideload an app, became paid that’s why we are now using this app instead of the ES as many people don’t have its subscription.
So let’s not waste any further time and check these steps to install Downloader & sideload Cinema HD on Firestick:
From the Home Screen on Fire TV, hover to the above section and select the Search or Magnifying Glass icon.
After this, you will see the keyboard there now using this type Downloader and then click on the first suggestion from below.
Or else you can press and hold the Home button for a few seconds and use the command Alexa, Open Downloader, and it will appear on your screen.
At this time, the number of apps will appear on the screen related to that search term, then simply select the Downloader app with Orange Background (check the screenshot below).
From the next screen, you simply need to click on the Get (Free to Download) button to install this app.
The installation will take only a few seconds depending on your internet speed and once completes select Open to launch it.
When you launch Downloader for the first time you will be asked to enable permission to access Media, Files, and Photos that help them store files so when it asks just select Allow.

Is Cinema HD Legal?
Yes, Cinema HD is a completely legal app because it doesn’t offer content on its own but rather scrap from other sources. It is quite similar to Google which searches for links from multiple hosters and provides them in one place. However, some links that you get with this app might be pirated or copyrighted which makes it illegal to stream.
Can I Use Cinema HD Without VPN?
Of Course not, it is highly recommended to use a VPN service not only with Cinema HD but with all 3rd-party apps. It is a fact that the app is secure but the problem is this app scraps links from a different source. That means you may get pirated content which means streaming from this could lead to a penalty.
Can I Download Movies with Cinema Apk?
Yes, the Cinema app is not only used for streaming but also helps the user download both Movies and TV Shows. It is simple and easy as you just need to click on the scrapped links and then select the Download button instead of play. Now, this app will start downloading that Movie and you can stream it offline.
Why Does Cinema HD Keep Buffering?
When the Cinema HD buffers there could be several reasons as many people or the hoster provider are using the link quite slowly. As I said earlier, it doesn’t have its own database but it gets links from other sources that are free, which is why you are facing the buffering issue.
However to fix this issue simply use another link but if the problem is not solved then you may need to try integrating the Real-Debrid service. Furthermore, I write an explanation guide about this problem so if you want to learn more about it then follow this link: Fix Buffering Issue on Firestick
