This guide will explain how to install FilmPlus on FireStick & Android TV boxes. The installation instructions work on Fire TV Cube, FireStick 4K, 4K Max, and Fire TV 2nd Generation. They also work on Android devices such as the NVIDIA Shield, Chromecast, and MECOOL box.
What is FilmPlus?
FilmPlus is an app that provides users with a vast collection of on-demand content to stream, including TV shows and movies.
FilmPlus pulls high-quality links from hosting websites. The movies and shows in its content library are available in HD, Full HD, and 4K resolutions.
The interface of FilmPlus is user-friendly, smooth, and modern. In addition, it’s entirely free, and you do not need to register or subscribe to use the app. However, FilmPlus is ad-supported. As a result, you may run into intermittent commercials.
FilmPlus is one of the best FireStick apps for watching on-demand content.
Attention, FireStick Users!
Governments and ISPs constantly monitor your online activity, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick could lead to serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend getting the best FireStick VPN to mask your IP address and securely stream your favorites.
I personally use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN available. Not only is it easy to install on any device, it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, if you're not 100% satisfied, you can always get a refund. ExpressVPN is currently also offering a whopping 3 extra months free on their annual plan!

Is FilmPlus Safe and Legal to Use?
The FilmPlus app is installed on my FireStick. It has not caused any trouble. The APK scan of the Virus Total also did not show anything alarming. All 65 security vendors cleared the file.
FireStickTricks.com does not have the resources to independently verify the legal status of every piece of content on FilmPlus. Unfortunately, it can be challenging to differentiate between a legitimate licensed source and an illegal one. Therefore, I recommend using a good VPN like ExpressVPN when you stream with FilmPlus.
A good VPN hides your online identity, keeping your activity anonymous. This protects you from getting into trouble with your ISP or the authorities if you unknowingly stream copyright-protected content.
