How to Watch Free Movies on FireStick 

Use the Cinema HD, Silk Browser, or FreeVee application to watch free movies on FireStick. Use the Downloader app to sideload Cinema HD, while Silk Browser and FreeVee are officially available to download from the app store.

WARNING: We recommend using a VPN when streaming free movies on your FireStick. This way, you can protect yourself and avoid legal trouble when watching copyright-protected content.

Before sideloading any third-party app on FireStick, ensure that the feature that allows the installation of unknown apps is enabled in the Fire TV settings. This will allow the Downloader app to download and install APK files from the internet directly.

So, let’s start the ball rolling. Below is our recommended list of apps to help you watch free movies on FireStick, along with installation details. 

Silk Browser

Amazon Silk or Silk Browser is the most compatible browser for the Amazon FireStick, which should come as no surprise. This browser provides you with all the tools you need to browse the web on your TV’s display for better immersion.

Taking advantage of your TV screen, Silk Browser lets you enjoy free streaming websites on possibly higher video quality. However, note that the quality will ultimately depend on the overall quality of the streamed content.

Install Silk Browser to watch free movies on FireStick using these steps:

  • Press Home on your FireStick remote.
  • Go to Find > Search.
  • Type “Silk Browser.”
  • Select Silk Browser on the search suggestions.
  • Click Silk Browser’s app icon.
  • Click Download/Get to download and install.
  • Click Open to launch the browser.
  • Read/accept its Terms of Use.
  • Click the search bar.
  • Go to “redbox.com.”
  • Click Watch Free and select Free On Demand.
  • Click your desired movie from the list.
  • Click WATCH FREE WITH ADS.

Note: Redbox also provides users the option to purchase movies or rent them at a lower price for ad-free viewing.

Redbox is just one example of many other websites that host free movies, just observe due diligence when searching for them. Just to let you know, you could expose yourself to malware when downloading movie apps. 

This is another reason why VPN services matter most. When you cloak your IP address, you keep hackers and malicious viruses at bay. 

Also, you should also do your due diligence before downloading any piece of software. As much as the internet is teeming with resources, it’s also fraught with risks that could get you in trouble. 

Here are other websites with free movies you can watch. These include Soap2day, Moviesjoy, Lekuluent, and 0123Movies.

Cinema HD

Cinema HD is one of the most popular, if not the most popular, streaming applications on FireStick. This app offers free access to the latest and most popular movies and TV shows that are sure to satisfy anyone’s cravings for pop culture entertainment.

The icing on the cake for this app is the ability to connect a Debrid account. Using a Debrid account on Cinema HD ensures you only get premium streaming links for the best quality content.

Before you get excited, please note that Cinema HD is a third-party that you can only install on FireStick through sideloading. This means that you need to install a sideloading tool like Downloader and enable the installation of apps from unknown sources beforehand.

How to Watch Movies and TV Shows on FireStick via Paid Options

Aside from the free streaming applications and services, there are also some premium subscription-based options for those who don’t hold back regarding quality content. Netflix and Hulu are arguably the best and most popular services out there.

Purchasing a legitimate subscription plan on either platform saves you from any trouble with piracy and copyright infringement. However, the content disparity between regions may still warrant using a VPN to bypass such restrictions in these services.

Netflix

Netflix is a production company known for being the biggest over-the-top video streaming service. It’s home to popular shows like Squid Game, Strangers Things, and Wednesday, as well as originals such as Bird Box and Two Popes.

Its incredible library of exclusive quality movies and TV shows, which seems to get better every year, makes every penny you spend on your Netflix subscriptions worth it.

If you’re without a subscription and are interested in getting one, look at our detailed guide below for more information.

Hulu

Do you have a tight budget and want a more cost-efficient subscription option? Well, Hulu might just fit your needs with their basic plan that only costs $7.99 per month.

You’re probably thinking, “doesn’t Netflix’s basic plan cost only $6.99, so how is it more cost-efficient?” Well, Hulu lets you stream with up to two devices at once instead of a one-device limit, which makes the sharing option more cost-efficient.

You can even visit dedicated websites like Together Price to connect with another person interested in sharing a Hulu plan.

Another perk of having a Hulu subscription is the ability to bundle it with Disney+ and ESPN+, drastically improving your entertainment library. Hulu also has a free 30-day trial, which Netflix lacks.

Aside from those, there are also third-party applications that offer comparable subscription services which can rival even the most popular and established streaming brands. All you need is a good eye and patience to look for them.

FAQs about Free Movies on FireStick

Does Amazon FireStick have free movies?

Amazon offers free movies on FireStick through the built-in FreeVee app which they also own and run. This app was originally called IMDb Freedive and was later on changed to IMDb TV, before being rebranded again as FreeVee.

Can you watch free movies on FireStick?

You can watch free movies on FireStick using a web browser or through the plethora of official and unofficial streaming applications you can install on this very flexible device. In fact, FireStick’s use has become synonymous with watching free movies. 

Is it legal to watch using free movie apps on FireStick?

In general, watching free movie apps on FireStick is legal, but this depends on the content and the platform you’re using for streaming movies. 
Most applications, whether official or unofficial, should be legal to download and install on your FireStick device. 
However, the same cannot be said about official or unofficial content streamed on these apps and platforms. In reality, it’s difficult for regular users to track if the service holds the proper licenses to stream viewable content. 
This is why using a VPN is getting a lot more necessary when streaming content on demand, as it’s your only layer of protection to hide your virtual footprints and avoid legal trouble concerning the piracy of copyrighted media.

What is the best app to watch movies on FireStick?

The best app to watch movies on FireStick is the one you can afford to have. 
Premium streaming services like Netflix and Disney+, among others, produce exclusive and high-quality content, and these are what most users consider the best. However, these options have expensive subscription fees.
However, we think that all that doesn’t matter when you don’t have the means to afford their services. After all, most people switched to FireStick and resorted to cutting the cord to save up and avoid expensive cable TV subscriptions.
This demand for free content on demand is the main driving force that leads to free third-party applications and services to increase the streaming market—most of which are in a legal gray area.
