How to Install and Use Stremio On FireStick/Android Box [May 2022]

This guide will demonstrate how to install Stremio on FireSticks, Fire TV, Fire Stick 4K, and Fire Stick Lite.

Stremio allows you to stream movies and shows as well as a wide range of other online content. This service can be accessed on many platforms, including computers, mobiles, television devices, and other types of devices. It may not be available on all devices, but it might not be through certain channels.

Stremio can be downloaded from Google Play Store for Android phones and Android TV Boxes with stock Android OS. It must be manually installed (sideloaded), onto FireStick or Android TV Boxes running Android TV OS (such as Mi Box or Nvidia Shield).

Stremio is a very simple app that I find much more intuitive than Kodi. It may not be as versatile. Because it allows me to watch almost everything, it doesn’t really matter. Stremio addons can be installed online, and not on your local storage. This is great news for devices with low storage such as FireStick or most Android TV Boxes. The online installation allows me to simply install the Stremio addon one time and have it available on all of my devices.

Let’s get started on the installation process.

How to Install Stremio On FireStick

Stremio can be downloaded from the Google Play Store but it is not available on Amazon Store. This app must be sideloaded onto your FireStick, FireStick 4K Max, and all other Fire TV devices. Sideloading refers to manual installation. It is not difficult as I will assist you.

First, you will need to install the Downloader App. This is a sideloading application for FireStick. Stremio APK cannot be downloaded directly from a browser.

Below are the brief instructions. However, you can read the complete instructions and learn more about Downloader by reading our How to Use Downloader on FireStick.

Before you use Stremio I want to warn you that all streaming online is visible to your Internet Service Provider and the government. You could be in legal trouble if you stream free TV shows and movies online.

There is an easy way to hide all streaming activity from your ISP or government. You only need a good VPN to Fire Stick. You can bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttle, and content geo-restrictions with a VPN.

Final thought

Stremio is one of the most popular online streaming services. The app allows you to stream all your favorite content, including shows, movies, live TV, and almost everything else. Although it is not as flexible as Kodi’s, I found it to be much more user-friendly. Even though there are only a few good add-ons available, you can still use them all.

Stremio’s online installation of addons is what I love the most. This allows you to save space on low-storage devices. You can install the addon once and it will be available on all of your devices. You can also use this app as an alternative to the Kodi.
