In this article, we have explored another app for firestick that provides free movies and TV shows to its users. This app is Movie HD app and the article discusses its download and installation steps on the firestick but the same steps can be extended to the FireTV as well.
Streamers prefer watching live TV and movies online instead of Cable/D2H. And continuous new releases from the OTT platforms have fueled this trend of the streamers. Obviously, it doesn’t make sense to pay for both the cable/D2H and broadband connection thus choosing the service that provides the other one’s content, seems to be a wise step. On top of it, the introduction of streaming devices by various companies have seconded the preference for streaming.
Amazon Inc. has also introduced streaming devices viz. Firestick Lite, Firestick 4K, Fire TV Cube. Due to its low cost, easy setup and flexibility, Amazon’s firestick device has captured the streaming device’s market in no time. Amazon has also its app store called Amazon store, from which various apps can be directly installed on the firestick/Fire TV. These devices are built upon the Android OS, thus if your preferred app is not available on the official Amazon store, it can still be installed on the firestick and fire TV with a little tweak.
The Firestick is a pen drive shaped (a little bulkier) device which comes with a power adapter and a remote. All you have to do is power the device and plug it into the HDMI port of your display device and turn that display device into a smart TV. In case you ever find your firestick remote non-functional, we have a firestick remote troubleshooting guide designed especially for you.
The easy installation of various streaming apps on firestick is probably the most important factor of its huge user base. Today. we are going to discuss one such streaming app.
Movie HD APK for Firestick
Previously at Dinno we have covered various app for movies and TV shows viz. Kodi, MediaBox HD & Megabox HD for firestick. Today’s app, the Movie HD is an on-demand app that has a huge content library of streaming content with movie categories. You can choose your favorite content from tons of movies from the library of content.
The app itself has a minimal memory footprint which means it can run quite smoothly on the firestick. But that less footprint comes at the cost of the accelerated buffering speed services like Trakt and Real Debrid. In case you use such services with other apps, you may miss it over here. This means that this app will give you a basic streaming experience.
Beware! the app also has copyright-protected streams, which means that you may put yourself in legal situations if not taking proper precautions. You may unknowingly stream a content from an illegitimate source and attract a legal complication if residing in a country where copyright laws are applied rigidly. Refer to the VPN section to find out how to avoid such situations.

Best VPN with the Streaming APP
We at Dinno always advise not to stream a copyright-protected content. Always choose the copyright-free content that is in the public domain to avoid any violation of copyright. However, we do suggest to use a VPN to avoid any legal notices in case you ever stream a copyright content unknowingly as there is no discrimination to which content is copyright-protected and which is not.
At Dinno, we always stream the public domain (copyright-free) content and always discourage streaming of copyright-protected content.
We recommend ExpressVPN as it is the best VPN among its competitors. The Express VPN has 160 servers in 94 countries across the world with unlimited bandwidth. After installing the Express VPN on the firestick, you can enter your login credentials to enjoy its services.
A VPN re-routes your traffic through one of their servers thus your ISP has no idea as to which destination you are going to. Even your destination doesn’t know your real IP, as it has the IP of the VPN server. A VPN also helps to find out whether your ISP is throttling your speed and it also aids to bypass the content geo-restrictions.
Movie HD on FireStick Usage
After opening the app, it asks your permission to access the files on the device, click allow to access the app.
This takes you to the app’s default screen. Here you can either enter the activation code or simply click cancel.
The home screen of the app is very well organized with minimal options. On the Top-Left corner, there is a menu icon (three-line menu icon), which consists of all the categories to sort the movies. The same 3-line menu icon also consists of various categories of the TV shows on the screen.
On the right, there is an option GENRES, to select the content genre as per your preference.
On the extreme upper-right corner there is a magnifying glass icon of the search bar. This gives the flexibility to search for a specific movie or a TV show.
