Attention FireStick Users: Read before you continue
Your government and ISP are probably monitoring your streaming activities using your IP address 220.127.116.11 (exposed to all). You may get into serious legal trouble for streaming copyrighted videos on FireStick.
I strongly recommend getting a trusted VPN for FireStick to hide your IP address and protect your online identity.
I use ExpressVPN on all my devices as it is the most secure, fastest, and easy-to-use VPN. It comes with an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee, and you get 3 free months with the yearly plan.
Don't miss out on the peace of mind and online security ExpressVPN provides.

Is FilmPlus Safe?
As FilmPlus is made by unknown developers, it’s unavailable on the Amazon App Store. Thus, the safety question arises.
There’s always a safety conflict regarding third-party streaming apps like FilmPlus. Unfortunately, FireStickHow cannot give its verdict on FilmPlus safety.
However, before installing FilmPlus on my FireStick, I checked its APK file using VirusTotal Online Scan. Gladly, the results showed no malicious files. Check them out:
Is FilmPlus Legal?
While FilmPlus is legal as it just scrapes freely available content on the web, the same cannot be said about its content.
It is impossible to ascertain whether the entire content library is licensed. Unfortunately, FireStickHow can’t test whether content on FilmPlus is legal to stream or not.
Therefore, I suggest using a VPN like ExpressVPN to mask your online identity when using FilmPlus. This will also help unlock geo-blocked content on all the FireStick apps.
Best FilmPlus Features
There are a bunch of features that I found exciting about FilmPlus. Here’s a list of the best ones:
- User-friendly interface
- Real Debrid, Premiumize, and All Debrid support
- Subtitle support in multiple languages
- Your personal Favorites section
- Alerts you with notifications
- Ad-free streaming experience
How to Install FilmPlus on FireStick
Now I will show you how to install FilmPlus APK on FireStick. I have broken down the installation process into two separate sections so that it does not get too confusing. So, without further ado, let us begin.
Part: 1 Set Up FireStick For FilmPlus Sideloading
As you know, FilmPlus is not available on FireStick App Store. So, I’ll sideload it. This means manually fetching FilmPlus APK and then installing it on the device.
But for that, you need to prepare your FireStick. And that involves two steps, installing Downloader (an official app on Amazon App Store) and then tweaking it.
A separate in-depth article shows how to set up and configure Downloader.
Or, consider the following quick steps:
1. On Fire TV home, open the Search Bar. Search for Downloader, open its menu, and select Get.
2. To let Downloader access and install unknown APK files. Head to Settings > My Fire TV > Developers Options > Install Unknown Apps (or Apps from Unknown Sources on some devices). After that, turn On Downloader.
Part 2: FilmsPlus Sideloading Instructions
Here’s a complete breakdown of how to sideload FilmsPlus on Fire TV:
1. Choose the Three-Tiles app icon on your FireStick home.
2. Open Downloader.
Note: Check inside App Library if you can’t see Downloader on the main screen of Your Apps & Channels.
3. On Downloader’s Home, choose the Box that says Ex: “AFTnews.com…
Note: Pick Allow to let Downloader gain access to your files and folders on its first launch.
4. Enter https://filmplusapk.com/dl and select Go.
Disclaimer: The above URL is the sole property of FilmPlus. FireStickHow doesn’t host/own any types of files on its servers or connected with the app developers.
5. Track FilmPlus APK file download progress and wait for it to complete.
Note: Use a VPN like ExpressVPN if you see an error like Access Denied. The FilmPlus APK download web is blocked in some regions.
6. You will receive a pop-up message prompting you to install the app. Click INSTALL.
7. Wait for the installation to be over. After that, you will receive an app-installed notification. Select DONE.
8. This will take you back to the Downloader screen. Once there, select Delete to delete the FilmPlus APK file, as you no longer need it.
9. On the following screen, select Delete to confirm the deletion of the FilmPlus APK.
You have successfully finished installing FilmPlus APK on FireStick.
Wait! It looks like you are all set to start watching your favorite content on FireStick. But have you protected your online identity yet? You are under constant surveillance by the Government and ISP. Free streaming of copyrighted videos may get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, you can easily avoid online monitoring and safeguard your privacy with a trusted VPN on FireStick. A VPN will hide your IP address and online identity by encrypting your internet connection.
Please note that I am not encouraging you to violate any copyright laws. You should always watch the content available in the public domain. I am simply recommending the use of a VPN to maintain your privacy. You have every right to your privacy, which is constantly being breached these days.
I personally use ExpressVPN and have found it to be the fastest and most secure FireStick VPN. It is also the most streaming-friendly VPN I have ever used. Therefore, I highly recommend getting ExpressVPN for FireStick.

3. Select the option that says Login to Real-Debrid.
