You will learn how to install MediaBox HD on a FireStick in this tutorial. This guide’s installation instructions work with FireStick, Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV, and Fire TV Cube.
MediaBox HD has quickly grown in popularity as one of the most popular apps for watching movies and TV shows. The app has a simple and easy-to-use interface that displays a large amount of content. The content library is updated on a regular basis. On a regular basis, newly released films and aired episodes are added to the catalog.
MediaBox HD is one of the most popular entertainment apps because of its ability to find high-quality streaming links and fast playback. The addition of Real-Debrid integration improves the overall experience.
The majority of MediaBox HD is available for free. If you want special treatment, you can donate and become a VIP member. Your contribution allows the developers to continue providing excellent service. However, if you are not a VIP member, you can still watch all of the movies and shows for free.
How to Install MediaBox HD on FireStick
Users of the FireStick, take note!
Governments and internet service providers keep a close eye on your online activity, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick could land you in hot water. Your IP address, 18.104.22.168, is currently visible to everyone. I strongly advise you to get the best FireStick VPN to hide your IP address and stream your favorite shows safely.
ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN on the market, is what I use. It’s not only simple to set up on any device, but it also comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, you can always get a refund if you’re not completely satisfied. On top of that, ExpressVPN is currently offering three extra months for free on their annual plan!
Here are some of the reasons why you should always use a VPN.
The FireStick is a media player that runs on Android. It does, however, use a modified firmware and does not allow you to download APK files directly from the browser, as Android phones do. As a result, you’ll need an additional app that allows you to sideload on your FireStick.
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to install MediaBox HD on your FireStick using the Downloader app. If you don’t have Downloader installed on your FireStick or Fire TV, I strongly advise you to do so immediately. It’s most likely the best app for sideloading apps onto your device.
The good news is that Downloader does not require sideloading. It can be found in the Amazon Store. To install any app from the Amazon Store on your FireStick, follow these steps:
- Return to the FireStick’s home screen (if you are not already there)
- Select the icon in the top corner of the screen (search option)
- Using the onscreen keyboard, type the app’s name (Downloader).
- In the search results, click the app’s name.
- On the next window, click the app icon.
- To download and install the app, click Download.
Prerequisite for installation: Enable Apps from Unknown Sources
MediaBox HD, unlike Downloader, is not available on Amazon. On the FireStick, this app must be sideloaded. One FireStick setting must be changed to enable sideloading. Take the following steps:
Select Settings from the FireStick’s home screen (on the top menu bar)
Select My Fire TV (or Device) from the drop-down menu.
Select Developer Options from the drop-down menu.
If the option Application from Unknown Sources is turned off or disabled, click it to enable it.
Choose Turn on when prompted to keep the option active.
Using Downloader to Install MediaBox HD APK on FireStick
Follow the steps below to install MediaBox on HD using the Downloader app:
- Open the Downloader application.
- Make sure the Home option is selected in the left sidebar.
- On the right side of the Downloader window, you should see a URL text field. Take a look inside it and click on it.
Simply type the following URL into the onscreen keyboard: http://mbhd.firesticktricks.com/
Note: You can also type firesticktricks.com/mbhd into your browser.
Check that the URL is correct and then press GO (or the Play/Pause key on the FireStick remote).
Allow for the download of the MediaBox APK. It will only take a few moments.
When the APK file has been downloaded, Downloader will run it. This window should now be visible. Scroll to the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. The Install button has taken the place of the previous Next button.
To continue, click Install.
Allow a few moments for MediaBox HD to download and install on your FireStick.
When the installation is complete, you will receive an App installed notification.
Click on Open if you want to run the MediaBox HD app. But first, let’s click Done and return to the Downloader interface to delete the MediaBox HD APK file that is no longer required.
To confirm your intent, click Delete once more on the next prompt.
That’s all there is to it. Using the Downloader app, you have successfully installed MediaBox HD on your Amazon FireStick.
Before you start streaming with MediaBox HD, keep in mind that your ISP and government will be able to see everything you do online. This means that streaming copyrighted content (such as free movies and TV shows) could land you in legal hot water.
With a VPN, you can hide your online streaming and browsing activities. A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, allows you to circumvent ISP throttling, government surveillance, and content geo-blocking.
ExpressVPN is installed on my Fire Stick, phone, and computer. After testing a number of paid and free VPNs, I can confidently state that ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN available. Here’s how you can set up a VPN on your Fire TV Stick.
We do not condone the infringement of copyright laws. But what if you unintentionally stream content from an unauthorized source? It is not always easy to distinguish between a legitimate and an illegal source.
How to Get and Use MediaBox HD on Amazon Fire Stick
Go to the section Your Apps & Channels to access MediaBox HD (or any other recently installed app). This is where you’ll find a list of all your installed apps.
- For 5 seconds, press and hold the Home button on your FireStick’s remote. There will be a new window open. Go to Apps and select it.
- Scroll down to find the MediaBox HD app icon.
- To open the app, simply click it. Follow the instructions below to add this app to your home screen.
- On the FireStick remote, press the Menu button.
- On the popup menu that appears in the bottom right corner of your screen, select Move.
Place the app icon in the desired location in one of the top three rows using the navigation keys (only these rows appear on the FireStick home-screen)
To release the app icon, press the Okay/Select key on your remote.
Okay, that’s it! Let’s get started exploring the app right away.
This prompt may appear when you run the app. Don’t be concerned. Click OK to continue.
On a FireStick, this is how MediaBox HD’s home screen looks.
As you can see, MediaBox HD has a slightly different interface than the other on-demand apps. On the bottom menu bar, there are four tabs:
- TV Shows
The Discover tab is selected by default when you open the app. This tab has a lot of interesting options. The following options can be found in the top row:
- HD (High Definition)
- 3D Blu-ray
- Calendar of TV Shows
- Simply choose a film for me.
- Netflix’s Best Horror Series
- IMDb’s Top 250 Films
- Netflix’s Top TV Shows
VIP Members have access to Full HD and Blue-ray 3D content. You can also donate to the developers to become a VIP Member. The donation option can be found in the top left menu. However, at the time of writing, these options were also available to non-VIP members. However, it is possible that this will change in the future.
The current date’s episode air times for various TV shows are listed in the TV Shows Calendar. I also enjoy the Just Pick a Movie for Me feature, which selects any movie for streaming at random.
The Collection category is found in the second row of the Discover tab. You could think of it as a collection of Boxsets. It allows you to watch all of the films from a variety of well-known franchises.
Trakt and Real Debrid sign-in are also supported by MediaBox HD. Trakt allows you to sync your watchlist across multiple devices. The Real Debrid integration ensures that you have more Full-HD streaming options for movies and shows.
