In this tutorial, I will show you how to install Solex TV on FireStick, Fire Stick 4K, and other Fire TV devices. You can also use the same APK file for your other Android devices.
Solex TV app offers you a solid collection of movie titles for a great streaming experience. The best thing about this app is that it only features the movies that have been released in Blu-Ray. This means it delivers high-resolution streaming.
This also means Solex TV does not feature the latest content. If you are looking for recent titles, you would like to explore other apps on our list.
Solex TV offers quick video streaming with one-click playback. You don’t need to wait for the streams to load up and go through the hit-and-try process. What’s even more exciting is that as I write this guide, Solex TV is one hundred percent AD-Free. I hope it continues the same way in the future as well.
The app has movies from the past several years as well as some old titles. The interface of Solex TV is unlike others. It may not be the most intuitive but is definitely very easy to use.
All in all, Solex TV is one good on-demand streaming app to have on FireStick.
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.
