What Is Megabox HD
Made for entertainment lovers worldwide, MegaBox is your one-stop destination to stream movies and TV shows for free. You’ll find everything from cult classics to the latest and trending content on MegaBox HD.
MegaBox HD features two main sections, Movie and TVShow. And they include sub-sections like Update, Rating, Popular, and New. Other than that, all sub-folders of Movie and TVShow on MegaBox HD let you filter content using Genres.
MegaBox HD features other valuable sections like Favorites, Downloads, and History. It is a free powerful app to watch your favorite content on FireStick.
Attention FireStick Users: Read before you continue
Your government and ISP are probably monitoring your streaming activities using your IP address 22.214.171.124 (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.
Don't miss out on the peace of mind and online security ExpressVPN provides.
Is Megabox HD Safe?
Well, that’s a tricky question. Any third-party/unofficial FireStick app doesn’t guarantee 100% safety to its users. Indeed, many popular apps seem reliable as they have been in the game for ages. But you can’t blindly trust them.
And at FireStickHow, we are FireStick and Kodi experts, not security geeks. So, we can’t give MegaBox HD a green flag. However, I ran a popular online virus check on the APK of MegaBox HD. And the results were quite unexpected – see yourself:
Is Megabox HD Legal?
MegaBox HD gives you access to thousands of free movies and TV shows paid for on other platforms. Unfortunately, although it’s exciting as a user, from the legal perspective, it’s too good to be true.
Indeed, MegaBox HD only scraps what’s already freely available on the internet. But is it legal? At www.FireStickHow.com, we don’t possess the resources to verify the source legality of a single movie/TV show on MegaBox HD, let alone thousands.
However, I know a way out! Use ExpressVPN with MegaBox HD to erase the tension of safety and legality matters.
How to Install Megabox HD on FireStick
As third-party apps like MegaBox HD aren’t available on Amazon App Store, their installation takes multiple steps. So, I have split the whole process into two easy-to-digest parts. Ensure maintaining the order of elements and steps when following to avoid any problems.
Part 1: Prepare Your FireStick to Download Megabox HD
Sideloading is the keyword used to install unofficial apps on FireStick on any other Android-based device. And for that, you have to prepare your FireStick. We have a detailed guide on preparing FireStick for sideloading. Here are the quick steps:
1. Firstly, install an app called Downloader from Amazon App Store. This app lets you download any file on your FireStick and install it.
2. Lastly, allow the Downloader to install files downloaded from the internet. You can find this option inside Settings > My Fire TV > Developer Options > Install Unknown Apps > Downloader ON.
Note: Some devices have Apps from Unknown Sources and not Install Unknown Apps.
Part 2: Install Megabox HD on Your FireStick
Prepared your FireStick? If yes, you are halfway there! Here’s how to install MegBox HD on your FireStick using Downloader:
1. Hold the home button on your Fire TV remote and wait for the shortcut menu to appear. Then, select Apps.
2. Fire up Downloader.
Note: Unable to locate Downloader? Explore the App Library tile to discover all apps installed on your FireStick.
3. On the Downloader’s Home tab, select the input box under Enter a URL or Search Term: heading.
Note: Allow access to your files and folders if you are opening Downloader on your Fire TV for the first time.
4. Enter firestickhow.com/megab in the input field and click Go.
Note: For ease, we have shortened the website URL where the MegaBox HD APK is hosted. By no means do we host or own the APK file at www.FireStickHow.com.
5. Wait for Download to connect to the servers of the URL back-link.
6. Let Downloader download the APK file of MegaBox HD from the server.
7. After downloading is complete, the Downloader will stage the app for installation. Click INSTALL.
8. FireStick will take some seconds to install MegaBox HD.
9. Click DONE to close the installation window.
10. You’ll return to Downloader and see a prompt containing the MegaBox HD APK file details. Click Delete to remove the APK file, as the app is now installed on your FireStick.
11. Choose Delete once again to confirm your decision.
Hooray! The MegaBox HD app is waiting in your FireStick app library for you to launch and use it.
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.
Here is how you can quickly get the ExpressVPN app on FireStick:
Step 1: Click HERE to subscribe to ExpressVPN and enjoy a 49% discount with 3 months of extended service. You are also eligible for a 30-day, full money-return guarantee.
