FreeFlix HQ is a free content streaming app that allows you to watch movies, TV shows, anime, live TV, and other types of content.

FreeFlix HQ’s no-frills interface is my favorite feature. The app’s layout is tailored to fit perfectly on a large screen, such as a television, making it an ideal app for FireStick or Android TV. It is completely remote-friendly, so you will never have any trouble interacting with the app using the FireStick remote or any other input device.

Installing Third-Party Apps on the FireStick
The first step is to make sure that your FireStick can install third-party apps like FreeFlix HQ. Here’s what you should do:
Step 1: Go to the home screen of the Fire TV Stick. Select the ‘Settings’ option on the top of the screen with the remote.
Step 2: Next, go to the Settings menu and select ‘Device.’
Step 3: In the next window, select ‘Developer options.’
Step 4: If ‘Unknown Sources Apps’ is turned off, click it to enable it.
Step 5: Click ‘Turn On’ when you see the following prompt or warning. FreeFlixHQ is completely safe to use and will not harm your FireStick device.
The Steps to Install FreeFlix HQ on FireStick
Using the Downloader app, we’ll now download and install the FreeFlix HQ app on the FireStick. On the FireStick, Downloader is the most popular app for side loading third-party APKs.
If you haven’t already, go ahead and install the app by clicking the link above. You may need to change the region in your Amazon account settings if you can’t find the Downloader app in the app store.
Run Downloader after it has been installed and follow the steps below:
To continue, click ‘Yes’ (you may disable it after downloading the APK and enable it later when required)
Step 3: Next, go to the top-left and select the Home option. Use the remote to move the cursor to the right-hand URL field and click inside.
Step 4: Type https://www.firesticktricks.com/ffhq into the on-screen keyboard.
Once you’ve finished, press the ‘Go’ button (you may also press the Play button on the remote)
Step 5: The APK for FreeFlix HQ will now be downloaded to your FireStick. Allow it to finish.
Step 6: When the download is finished, Downloader will begin the installation process automatically. When you see this prompt, go ahead and select the ‘Next’ button by scrolling down to the bottom.
Step 7: Once you’ve scrolled all the way down, the ‘Next’ button will change to a ‘Install’ button. To continue, click ‘Install.’
Step 8: The ‘App installed’ notification will appear once FreeFlixHQ is installed on your FireStick. If you want to launch the app directly from this prompt, click ‘Open.’ To return to the Downloader app, click ‘Done.’
We’ll click ‘Done’ because there’s still one more thing to do.
On a Firestick, you can watch Netflix in high definition for free.
Step 9: Now you’ll see what comes next. You can now delete the FreeFlixHQ APK file because you no longer require it. You don’t want it to take up too much of your limited storage space.
Step 10: Double-check your decision by clicking ‘Delete’ once more.
Now, go to your FireStick’s Apps & Channels section and open the FreeFlixHQ app.
The app icon is at the bottom of the list, as you can see. You can move it to the top of the list so that it shows up on the FireStick’s home screen. Hold down the ‘Select’ button on the remote while selecting the app icon. Now, use the remote’s direction buttons to move the icon to the desired position in the top row.
How to Use FreeFlix HQ on The FireStick
Before you begin streaming with FreeFlix HQ, please be aware that everything we do on the internet, including our online streaming activities, can be traced and tracked back to us. Many people have received legal notices from the authorities after using apps like FreeFlix HQ to watch free online content.
Using a VPN service can help you avoid getting into legal trouble. VPN encrypts your online activities and hides them from prying eyes, such as the government and your ISP.
I do not support the violation of copyright laws. However, I am a staunch supporter of personal privacy. VPN protects your privacy.
ExpressVPN is a service that I personally use and recommend. ExpressVPN has repeatedly proven to be the fastest VPN, and its dependability is unquestionable. It works on FireStick as well as a variety of other platforms such as Android, Windows, iOS, and others.
Here’s how to get started with ExpressVPN on your FireStick and keep your streaming activities private.
Step 1: CLICK HERE to join ExpressVPN. A 30-day money-back guarantee is included. Meaning, you can use it for free for the first 30-days and then request a full refund if you are not satisfied with the results (which is highly unlikely).
Step 2: Turn on your Fire TV/Stick and navigate to the “Search” option on the far left. Now type “Expressvpn” (without the quotes) into the search bar and select ExpressVPN from the list of results that appears.
Step 3: To install the ExpressVPN app for Fire TV / Stick, click “Download.”
Step 4: Launch the app and log in using the credentials you created when purchasing an ExpressVPN subscription. Select “Sign in” from the drop-down menu.
Step 5: To connect to a VPN server, click the Power icon. That is all there is to it. With the fastest and best VPN for FireStick, your connection is now secure.
More information on using ExpressVPN with Fire TV / Stick can be found here.
Let’s look at how to use FreeFlix HQ on Fire TV / Stick assuming you’re using a VPN and your activities are private.
FreeFlixHQ is a straightforward application. To get started, simply open the app and select the title you want to stream.
The ‘Movies’ section of the app’s home screen is displayed by default. You can select one of the other options from the drop-down menu by clicking the hamburger menu on the top-left.
For example, to watch TV shows, go to the hamburger menu and select ‘TV Shows’ from the drop-down menu. Other options include anime, cartoons, live television, and wrestling.
FreeFlix HQ’s servers, like those of any other free content streaming app, are not always available. The good news is that the app allows you to easily switch servers.
The following pop-up window will appear when you click the filter icon in the top-right corner (the icon that looks like a funnel).
The section ‘Change Server’ with the list of servers is located at the top. Choose a different server if one isn’t working.
The button ‘Servers Status’ appears beneath the server list when you click the Filter icon on the FreeFlixHQ home screen. When you click the button, the status of the servers will appear in the form of bars.
It will be better if the bar representing the server is filled with red. Servers S3, S4, S8, and S9 are all red, as shown in the image below. This means that these servers will provide higher-quality streams.
S1 through S5 are dedicated to movies, while S6 through S10 are dedicated to TV shows.
Is It Possible To Use An External Media Player?
Yes, you certainly can! Despite the fact that FreeFlixHQ has a built-in media player, you can use an external media player such as VLC or MX Player.
MX Player, in my experience, works better with streaming apps. MX Player can be installed in a matter of minutes.
Click the hamburger menu on the top-left of the home screen and select ‘Settings’ from the drop-down menu to change the media player. Now, scroll down and select ‘Use external Video Player.’
The options will be displayed in a list. Choose the video player you want to use as the default for FireFlix HQ on FireStick (click MX Player or ‘Choose from my Apps’ to choose one of the video players on your device).
Is it possible to get FreeFlix HQ without ads?
Yes, you certainly can!
While using FreeFlixHQ, you may experience a few interruptions from advertisements. The app is ad-supported, which allows the developers to cover their overhead and other costs.
However, you can have an ad-free experience by paying $10 via PayPal and purchasing the ad-free version.
Click ‘Settings’ from the Hamburger menu on the top-left of the app home-screen. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select the ‘Remove Ads (PayPal)’ option.
Make a $10 PayPal donation by following the instructions.
Final Thoughts On How to Install FreeFlix HQ on FireStick
FreeFlixHQ is an easy-to-use app that I have thoroughly enjoyed as an online-streaming enthusiast. I’m not claiming that the app is flawless, because there is no such thing. But, because it gets the job done quickly and efficiently, I’ve grown to appreciate it. It’s true that some servers are down, which leads us to believe that the app isn’t up to par. This is easily remedied by choosing the appropriate server. Simply look at the server status as I have shown above and choose the most powerful. After trying and testing dozens of free streaming apps, I can confidently say that while FreeFlixHQ isn’t the best, it is far superior to the majority. Don’t be afraid to give it a shot.
