Attention FireStick Users: Read before you continue
Governments and ISPs across the world monitor their users' online activities. If found streaming copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick, you could get into serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend you to get a good FireStick VPN and hide your identity so that your movie viewing experience doesn’t take a bad turn.
I use ExpressVPN which is the fastest and most secure VPN in the industry. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon Fire TV Stick. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don't like their service, you can always ask for a refund. ExpressVPN also has a special deal where you can get 3 months free and save 49% on annual plan.
How to install CyberFlix TV on FireStick
Quite like the Android mobiles, the Android-based FireStick also has a security mechanism which prevents the download and installation of third-party applications. However, this security setting can be easily bypassed for trustworthy and safe apps like CyberFlix TV. Follow the instructions below:
1- Access the FireStick Settings. That you can do by selecting the Settings option on the FireStick home screen. It is on the top
2- Now we will open My Fire TV (which may be available as Device on older devices)
3- Choose Developer Options
4- You want to make sure that Apps from unknown sources is switched ON. Click this option if it is OFF
5- This warning message will discourage you from enabling unknown sources. As I said, CyberFlix TV is safe. Go ahead and click Turn on.

When that’s taken care of, you can start with the process.

Before you start streaming with your Fire Stick, there is something incredibly important you must know. All your online activities are subject to surveillance and monitoring by your ISP as well as your Government. Streaming licensed or copyrighted videos for free could land you in legal troubles.
The good news is that you can hide all your online and streaming activities from anyone who might be watching and that includes your ISP, Government or any third-party entity. What you simply need is a reliable VPN for your FireStick. With a VPN, you can stream with complete peace of mind as it will encrypt your internet connection and keep it hidden from the prying eyes.
I am not encouraging you to stream content illegally. I do not condone such activities. However, your privacy matters and it must be maintained. What if you do not intend to stream copyrighted content and still end up doing it anyway? You would not want to be penalized for an unintentional mistake.
I have been using ExpressVPN for a long while and confidently recommend it as the best, fastest and safest VPN for FireStick.
Let me show you how to start using a VPN on FireStick under 2-minute.
#1. Subscribe to ExpressVPN: Click HERE to subscribe to ExpressVPN. You can save up to 49% on the annual plan. ExpressVPN also offers a 30-Day full refund guarantee in the event you are not satisfied with it. However, if you intend to use a VPN, I don’t see any reason why you would want to opt out of it.
#2. Look up for ExpressVPN on FireStick: You can download ExpressVPN from Amazon Store. From the home-screen of your FireStick, select the Search function (top-left) and look up for ExpressVPN.
#3. Download & Install ExpressVPN on FireStick: Open the ExpressVPN icon on the next screen. Now click the Download option as you see on this window. Wait for the ExpressVPN app to download and install
#4. Sign into ExpressVPN on FireStick: Launch ExpressVPN on your device and click Sign in on the bottom of the first screen. Enter your login credentials on the following window and click Sign in again
#5. Connect ExpressVPN on FireStick: Click the connection button to connect to VPN. You can connect to the default server ExpressVPN has already chosen for you based on your location or you could pick any other region/server of your choice.
Once you have secured FireStick with ExpressVPN, you can start streaming with peace of mind.
Alternate Method to install CyberFlix TV on FireStick
In the previous method, we used the Downloader tool and installed CyberFlix TV. There is another sideloading tool I am very fond of – ES File Explorer. This multipurpose app makes the sideloading process incredibly easy.
Please note that this is an alternate method. If you have already installed CyberFlix TV through Downloader, you don’t need to follow this method.
Let us first install ES File Explorer from the official Amazon Store. You can do that by using the search option on the home screen. Just lookup for the app and follow the simple onscreen instructions.
Now you may follow these instructions and install CyberFlix TV:
1- Click Downloader option on the home screen of ES Explorer (from the right part of the window where you see a set of icons)
Alternately, you may expand Tools menu on the left and click Download Manager
2- Navigate to the bottom and click the +New icon
3- This dialog box will appear
4- Type in the following Path: https://www.firestickhow.com/cftv
You may choose to type any Name. In fact, if you like you may even leave it blank. It will not affect the download process
Click Download Now
5- Allow ES File Explorer a minute or two to download the app APK. When that’s finished, select Open File
6- Now go ahead and click Install to run the APK file you just downloaded
7- Go to the bottom-right to Next
8- Click Install (it will appear in place of Next)
9- CyberFlix TV FireStick app is now installed as confirmed by this notification. If you intend to start watching your favorite shows and movies immediately, click Open. To use the app sometime later, click Done
How to Use the CyberFlix TV on FireStick
Let me first tell you how to access the app. There are three ways to do that:
- Go to FireStick Settings from the home screen and navigate to Applications > Manage installed applications > CyberFlix TV > Launch Application
- Long press the Home button on your remote until a popup window is displayed. Click Apps
- Go to Your Apps & Channels row on the FireStick home screen. Now, navigate all the way to the right and click See All
In fact, I have noticed that now the newly installed apps appear first in the Your Apps & Channels row on the home screen. You can open the app directly from there.
Note: If the app prompts you to install an update when you run it the first time, follow the onscreen instructions and install the update (recommended)
Upon the first run, CyberFlix TV will ask you to choose the default video player. I always use MX Player. It is a fast, error-free player. You can install it using the Downloader app from this link: https://www.firestickhow.com/mx
If you don’t want to install any additional video player app, you may choose ExoPlayer, which is built-in to the CyberFlix TV app.
You may encounter Changelog window too. Click OK

The main window of CyberFlix TV will display the TV shows by default. To switch to Movies, click the menu icon in the upper-left corner (hamburger menu) and click Movies.
If you want Movies to appear by default on the launch screen, you can change the default in Settings.
Again, the Settings option is accessed through the hamburger menu in the top-left
The app Settings lets you customize the app in numerous ways. Go ahead and explore it.
On the main screen of the app, next to the hamburger menu on the top, you will find a small triangle. When clicked, this triangle displays a dropdown menu with categories relevant to the type of content chosen (Movies or TV Shows).
On the far top right, you can use the Search option to find for any specific movie, TV show or episode even. Next to the search option is the Star icon, which lets you quickly access your favorites.
The three vertical dots on the extreme right on the top let you access CyberFlix Support Page, CyberFlix Team, Contact, etc.
To get started, you simply need to choose the video content you want to watch and follow the onscreen instructions to start streaming.
CyberFlix TV is a convenient and simple way to watch movies and shows on FireStick. There is a huge database of content to explore for probably unlimited binge-watching. The user interface of the app is straightforward. Install the app to start streaming instantly. Due to its small size, CyberFlix TV FireStick app offers smooth performance. It is also fully compatible with the FireStick remote.
