In this tutorial, you will learn to install and use the SilentGhost HD APK on FireStick. This step-by-step guide provides detailed instructions that work on FireStick, Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV and Fire TV Cube.
SilentGhost HD is one of the newer on-demand apps for Android platform. This app has a solid line-up of Movies and TV Series. With less than 4MB size, SilentGhost is suited for low-spec devices including FireStick.
You wouldn’t find a lot of features in this app. Silent Ghost doesn’t even have any Settings. However, it offers one-click play, which is delightfully fast. That’s more than I can say for other on-demand apps.
Since SilentGhost is a third-party app, we will side-load it onto your FireStick. You will find the complete set of instructions in this guide. Keep reading!
Update: This app is not working anymore. You may check other apps from our list of Best Apps for FireStick
How to Install SilentGhost HD on FireStick
I am going to use two different methods with two different apps to install SilentGhost on FireStick. You can use one of the following two apps:
- ES File Explorer
Both these apps are available on Amazon Store. You can download and install them following these steps:
- Select Search (lens icon) in the top-left corner of the FireStick home-screen
- Type the name of the app you wish to install (Downloader or ES File Explorer)
- Select and click the app name when you see it in the search results below
- Click the app icon on the next screen
- Click Download to download and install the desired app
Allow Apps from Unknown Sources Before Installation
There is a security setting called Apps from Unknown Sources that must be enabled to allow installation of the third-party apps like SilentGhost HD. Here is how you do that:
- Go to the home-screen of FireStick and select Settings from the menu bar on the top
- When you see the following set of options, click My Fire TV (or in some cases it is Device)
- Open the item Developer Options
- On the next window, check whether the item Apps from Unknown Sources is on or off. If it is off, click it and turn it ON
- You must now see a warning message. Don’t worry about it as SilentGhost HD is a trusted, safe app. Click Turn on
You can now install SilentGhost on FireStick, or for that matter any third-party app you want.

Before you start streaming with SilentGhost HD, I would like to warn you that everything you stream is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies and TV shows) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, you can hide your online streaming/browsing activities with a VPN. A VPN a.k.a Virtual Private Network helps you bypass ISP throttling, Government Surveillance, and content geo-restrictions.
We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
Install SilentGhost HD APK on FireStick Using ES File Explorer (Alternate Method)
While the Downloader app will do the job for you, it is good to have some alternatives in hand. That’s why I am presenting the ES File Explorer method to you. Furthermore, Downloader app is not available in all the countries.

Done! This is how you install SilentGhost HD on FireStick with ES File Explorer.
You may now want to delete the APK file to free up some space in the FireStick storage. Here are the quick steps:
- Click and expand Local on the left sidebar of ES File Explorer
- Click Home (the second one without the home icon)
- Now navigate to the right and click the Download folder
- Select the SlingHost APK file and long press the Select/OK button on your FireStick remote
- Navigate to the bottom of the screen and click Trash/bin icon to delete the file
How to Access and Use SilentGhost HD App on FireStick
If you are looking for the app on the home-screen of your FireStick, you won’t find it there just yet. You need to move it to the home-screen. Here is what you do:
- Hold down the Home button on the remote of your FireStick for a few seconds
- When you see the full-screen pop-up window, click Apps to go to the Your Apps & Channels section
- You now see the list of all your apps. Scroll down to the bottom and select SilentGhost

We will now explore the SilentGhost HD app on FireStick.
If truth be told, there isn’t a lot to explore. And, I don’t necessarily mean it in a bad way. SilentGhost HD is a simple, no-frills app for streaming movies and TV shows. It lets you get started almost instantly.
The following image shows the home-screen of the app:
As you see, the menu sidebar on the left only has a search option on the top and four other items:
- New Release
- TV Shows
- Request (the section from where you can request for a movie or show, which is not there already)
The app comes without any settings or tools. As I write this guide, SilentGhost HD does not offer Trakt or Real-Debrid integration as well. It just lets you stream movies and shows.
The good thing about this app is that it is extremely lightweight. The version depicted in this guide is only 3.9 MB in size. That’s incredibly light. Therefore, it offers excellent performance on all sorts of Android devices including FireStick. The one-click play allows you to start streaming rather quickly.
SilentGhost HD is a small-sized, fast app with a big content collection and one-click play feature. It does not offer a lot of other features present in other on-demand apps. However, it does the core job of streaming well. For the most part, the app plays videos in 720p resolution. Full HD 1080 videos are hard to find. All in all, it is a decent app to try.
