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
Your streaming activities are probably getting monitored constantly by your Government and your ISP. If you are caught streaming copyrighted videos on your FireStick, you are likely to get into serious legal trouble.
Your IP address 188.8.131.52 is exposed to anyone who is watching. That is how they will track you. Therefore, I strongly recommend that you get a trusted VPN for Firestick right now and hide your online identity.
I am using ExpressVPN on all my devices as it is the most reliable, most secure, and the fasted VPN in the market. You can easily install and set up ExpressVPN on FireStick or any other device within minutes.
ExpressVPN offers you a money-return guarantee of 30 days. Also, you can claim 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans.

MediaBox HD app Settings
To open MediaBox HD Settings, click Settings in the menu
In the Player section, you can choose the video player for playback. If you don’t specify, MediaBox HD will automatically pick a player for you
I recommend using MX Player
The Subtitles section lets you customize subtitles settings
In the User Interface section, you can change the Poser Size. Small, Normal, Large are the available options
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.
Wait! Before you start watching your favorite content on FireStick, make sure you have protected your online identity. Your streaming activities are likely being monitored and logged by your Government as well as your ISP. Free streaming of copyrighted videos may get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, you can easily avoid the surveillance and monitoring of your online activities and completely maintain your privacy. All you need to do is connect to a trusted and reliable VPN on FireStick. A VPN will hide your IP address and your 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 being constantly breached these days.
I personally use ExpressVPN and have found it to be the fastest and most secure FireStick VPN. It is the most streaming-friendly VPN I have ever used. Therefore, I highly recommend getting ExpressVPN for FireStick.
Here is how you can quickly and easily get the ExpressVPN app on FireStick:
