In this tutorial, you will find the detailed instructions to install CotoMovies a.k.a Bobby Movie on FireStick. Though the official name of the app is CotoMovies, some users also pronounce it GotoMovies. The images used in this guide have been taken on FireStick 4K. However, the method applies to all the Fire TV devices currently in use.
Coto Movies serves you a solid line up of on-demand Movies & Shows. The finely designed UI of this app has a professional appeal to it. The layout is simple and content is well organized making it easy to discover and stream.
You can stream in 1080p, 720p, and SD resolution. Unfortunately, CotoMovies does not support Real Debrid and hence you will not find any 4K streams here. Trakt integration is supported. So, you can sync your data by signing in with your Trakt account.
Huge content library, ease of use and navigation make Coto Movies one of the best on-demand streaming apps for FireStick.
UPDATE: CotoMovies is currently unavailable. You can check out these CotoMovies alternatives.

Attention FireStick Users: Read before you continue
Governments and ISPs across the world monitor their users' online activities. If found streaming copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick, you could get into serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend you to get a good FireStick VPN and hide your identity so that your movie viewing experience doesn’t take a bad turn.
I use ExpressVPN which is the fastest and most secure VPN in the industry. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon Fire TV Stick. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

There are multiple ways to access FireStick apps as follows:

– Hold down the Home key on the FireStick remote for 5-6 seconds. Click Apps when you see the prompt

How to Use Coto Movies on FireStick
I am now going to give you a quick overview of CotoMovies FireStick app.
When you run the app, you might run into this Coto Movies Update prompt. While we keep our download link up to date, you may see this prompt occasionally. I recommend clicking OK to update the app to the latest version
Here is the home window of the CotoMovies application
The side menu of the app has the following options: Home, Search, Genres, Download, Bookmarks, History, Settings, Twitter
The menu items are self-explanatory. Download is the section where you will find your downloaded content (not recommended on FireStick due to its low storage capacity). Bookmarks section displays the content you have marked as favorite. History section lines up your viewing history. The Twitter option will give you access to the CotoMovies’ Twitter handle in case you have any questions.
Home is the default selection on the app launch. You can explore a wide range of content from here including Movies, TV Shows, etc. It also displays the Popular and Trending content.
If you are looking for anything specific, you may always use the Search option in the side menu.
The app does not have many Settings. The Settings section will let you sign in to your Trakt account and change the screen layout (Phone / Tablet and Android TV are the options).
CotoMovies APK has had some issues in the past as it did not work well on FireStick. Looks like the developers have taken care of it. Coto Movies is now fully compatible with FireStick and your TV display. It is also now hundred-percent remote-friendly.
The app has an impressive content library. However, CotoMovies itself doesn’t own any content. It is an aggregator that fetches videos from various online sources. It lets you stream in up to 1080p resolution.
Coto Movies has some drawbacks too. It has barely any settings or customizations. Even though it lets you sign in to your Trakt account, the app does not support Real Debrid. Absence of Real Debrid integration may be a deal-breaker for some.
Nevertheless, CotoMovies (Bobby Movie) is still a decent FireStick app to try, especially because it is totally free.
