In this tutorial, I will show you how to install Megabox HD APK on FireStick. The screenshots used in this guide have been taken on FireStick 4K. However, the method works on Amazon Fire Stick 2nd Gen and Fire TV Cube as well.
Megabox HD is a third-party app for streaming on-demand movies and TV shows. It is a lightweight app that weighs less than 5MB. Therefore, do not expect it to be feature-rich. However, as I write this guide, the app is streaming content well. Hence, I decided to write this tutorial.
The app features a solid library of movies and shows. It also gets some good links from quality servers. Unfortunately, to keep the app lightweight, it has been trimmed down to just the basics. Therefore, you will not find Real Debrid support. In fact, Trakt support is also missing.

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. If you don't like their service, you can always ask for a refund. ExpressVPN also has a special deal where you can get 3 months free and save 49% on annual plan.
