In this walkthrough, I’ll show how to install HD Streamz on FireStick. The instructions in this guide work equally well on all Fire TV devices. The list includes FireStick 4K, FireStick Lite, Fire TV Cube, and even some older versions.
What is HD Streamz?
HD Streamz is a third-party live streaming service. This app features hundreds of Live TV channels from many parts of the world.
With HD Streamz, you can tune into news, entertainment, lifestyle, and other channels for free. Along with IPTV, the app features Radio and On-Demand sections.
HD Streamz is popular for live streaming, but it also features a decent collection of VOD content. You will also find this app in our list of best apps for FireStick.
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 HD Streamz Safe & Legal?
With over 1,000 channels, HD Streamz looks too good to be true. And that’s where customers get concerned about its safety. As HD Streamz is a third-party service, there’s no official way to verify its safety.
At FireStickTricks.com, we don’t have the authority to deem HD Streamz completely safe for your device. Furthermore, the VirusTotal report enclosed below does not look promising. Out of 56 checks, 8 security vendors have flagged the APK as malicious.
Even though the app has not caused any trouble on my FireStick, I would advise you to proceed cautiously if you decide to install it.
HD Streamz’s legality is unknown as it belongs to unknown developers. There’s no way for us at FireStickTricks.com to test whether the channels are sourced authentically.
