How to Install MediaBox HD APK on FireStick (2020)

Today, I will show you how to install MediaBox HD on FireStick and Fire TV range of devices (Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Stick 4K, etc.)

MediaBox HD is an on-demand streaming platform that covers a range of content categories including Movies, TV Programs, Music, Cartoon, and Anime. The Android version of the app has been optimized for touch as well as remote-control devices, such as FireStick and Android TV Boxes.

The service fetches plenty of high-quality streams in up to 1080p resolution. It can also be paired with Real Debrid for access to several premium links.

MediaBox HD also has the Trakt support if you are looking to sync your viewing data.

While MediaBox HD is largely free, it also offers premium subscriptions via VIP membership. The paid version of the app is ad-free and supports multi-user connection. However, the free version should be good enough for most users.

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 35.172.195.82 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.

Kid Mode is probably the most interesting option in the MediaBox HD Settings. When you enable Kid Mode, the app only displays the content suitable for kids. With one click, you can convert this regular, on-demand app into an app for kids.

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

The app gets you some quality streaming links. However, Real Debrid sign in makes it even more exciting. Trakt integration is also supported, allowing you to sync your data across various apps.
