In this guide, you will learn how to install Movie HD on FireStick. The screenshots used in this tutorial have been taken on a FireStick 4K device. However, the steps work on Amazon FireStick 2nd Gen as well as Fire TV Cube.
Movie HD is an on-demand app that streams movies and shows. It has a big content library, which is also updated regularly with new videos.
Since Movie HD is a lightweight app, it takes a small amount of space and remains easy on the resources. However, this also means it is not exactly the most feature-loaded app.
On the other hand, if you are looking for a more feature-rich app for movies and shows, you may explore our list of Best Amazon FireStick/Fire TV Apps.
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.
How to install Movie HD on FireStick
There are basically three things you need to do in order to install and use Movie HD on Amazon FireStick. Here is what needs to be done:
- Enable or Allow Apps from Unknown Sources
- Install Movie HD on FireStick
- Install AMPlayer (external player required to play videos on HD Movies)
Part 1: Enable or Allow Apps from Unknown Sources
Why do we need this? Because Movie HD will be sideloaded on your FireStick from a third-party source. Your device will allow sideloading only if you have enabled Apps from Unknown Sources.
Follow the steps below:
1. Go to the FireStick home screen if you are not already there by pressing the home button on the remote
2. From the home screen, go to the top and select Settings
3. Within the Settings, go ahead and select My Fire TV
4. You now see the following screen. Open Developer Options
5. Next, go ahead and switch on Apps from Unknown Sources by clicking it once
Note: Skip this if it is already ON
6. This prompt is now displayed on your screen. Simply click Turn On to continue
Now that you have configured your FireStick for sideloading, we can install Movie HD now.
Part 2: Movie HD FireStick installation steps
This is the part where you actually install Movie HD APK on Amazon FireStick. Here are the steps:
1. Go to the home screen of your FireStick/Fire TV device once again
2. Select the Search option or the magnifying glass icon in the upper-left corner in the menu bar
3. Search and install the app called Downloader
4. When you run the Downloader app the first time, you encounter some prompts. Dismiss all of them until you see the main screen
On this screen, click where you see http://
5. Now, with the help of this onscreen keypad, type the following URL: firesticktricks.com/mhd
Make sure you type the URL correctly to avoid any installation issues
Press the Play/Pause button on your remote or click GO on the screen
6. You will now see the Movie HD APK getting downloaded on your device. It takes a few seconds. We wait!
7. Click Install when the following prompt appears
8. Wait for the Movie HD app to install on FireStick. This also takes a few seconds
9. When the app has installed, you are going to see the App installed prompt
Now, if you want to get started with Movie HD immediately, click OPEN
I would recommend you click DONE though. Let’s first delete the APK file and spare some space on the device
10. Click Delete on this prompt
11. Click Delete again
You have successfully installed Movie HD on FireStick. This app required AMPlayer to play the videos. We will install this player in the next section.
Part 3: Install AMPlayer for Movie HD
Most streaming apps come with built-in video players. That is not the case with Movie HD though. It requires an external video player called AMPlayer.
We will install AMPlayer from Aptoide TV. Aptoide TV is an alternate, third-party store. I am providing the quick steps to install Aptoide TV. You can read more about it in our guide on How to install Aptoide on FireStick.
Follow the steps below:

From the home screen of this app, select and click the Search option in the top-left corner

Click Next or press Play/Pause on your remote

7. Click Install

Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Fire Stick. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
