In this post, I will show you how to install UnlockMyTV on FireStick. The same steps will work on Fire TV Cube, FireStick 4K, and other older Fire TV devices.
As I write this guide, UnlockMyTV is a new app and it looks like a clone of the more popular Cinema HD APK. But, what’s better about UnlockMyTV is that it is currently free of annoying ads. On the other hand, the Cinema HD has plenty of them.
UnlockMyTv is doing a fine job of pulling the quality streams from the best sources out there. It rounds up lots of streams in 1080p quality. 720p and SD streams are also available. It would be a great idea to integrate the app with Real Debrid to unlock its full potential.
Let us get started with the installation process.
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.

The installation process is simple but a bit long. Therefore, let me give you a brief snapshot of it before we start with the actual steps. This will be the course of the process:

How to use UnlockMyTV on FireStick
Let me give you a quick rundown of the UnlockMyTV app for FireStick.
On the first run, UnlockMyTV app will ask you for the system permission to access photos, media, etc. Go ahead and click Allow
Clicking Deny will close the app
There will be more prompts. Dismiss them by choosing the appropriate options. For instance, when this prompt shows, hit the back remote button
There is a chance the new version of the app is available. In that case, UnlockMyTV will prompt you to update the app. Go ahead with it. It is best to have the up to date version of this streaming service.
After having dismissed the prompts, this is the main screen of the UnlockMyTV app you land on. The default home-screen features the TV Shows. If you would like to see the movies instead, you can do that from the menu or from the app settings. I will show that you later.
Thankfully, UnlockMyTV allows you to sort, filter and search the content. You don’t have to scroll through to find what you are looking for. While the trending movies/shows appear first on the screen, you can look up for more in a variety of ways.
For instance, if you want to sort/filter the content genre-wise, you may click the tiny inverted triangle in the top menu bar. You will have the option to pick the categories like Crime, Drama, Comedy, Documentary, etc.
The search option is also a great way to find what you want to watch. You just need to click the lens icon near the top-right corner.
You may also like to sort/filter the movies and shows by year. Just click the filter icon in the far-right on the top to bring up this screen. It lets you go almost as far back as you want. However, the app may not necessarily have any content available for the selected year
Now I will show you how to switch between Movies & TV Shows on the main screen. I will also tell you more about the menu items
Go to the far-left on the top and click those 3 horizontal lines to display the dropdown menu. As you can see, the first two entries are TV Shows and Movies. So, that’s how you toggle between the two.
If you have marked any video as your favorite, click the Favorites option in the menu to view it.
To access your streaming records, go to History
TV Calendar displays the schedule but it is not very effective. It works better if you have signed in with Trakt (you can do that via app Settings)
The Downloads section in the menu is where you can see your downloaded videos
Click Settings to access the app settings. The setting options look like this:
There are plenty of options here. Here are some of them you could be interested in:
– Choose default player: Lets you pick the video player of your choice. If you don’t choose any external player, the app will use its built-in UnlockMyTV player. I recommend using MX Player.
– Show Only HD links: If you want to filter out any SD or non-HD links, this is the option to enable
– Debrid section: Let’s you sign in to your favorite Debrid provider. Real-Debrid is the best by far.
– Login to Trakt TV: To sync your Trakt account
In the end…
So, this is pretty much everything you need to know about UnlockMyTV on FireStick. The app is doing great presently. There are lots of videos and lots of quality streams. What’s even better is that currently, the app does not have any ads. What do you think about this app? Feel free to let us know through the comments section below.
