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.
Method 1: Install Terrarium TV on FireStick Using Downloader App
The regular version of the Terrarium TV app recommended using the Yes Player for fewer ads and better streaming experience. But, off late, several users told us that Yes Player wasn’t downloading. Now with the regular version of the app gone, we suggest using MX Player as the default video player.
In the following steps, you will first learn how to install the Terrarium TV patched version and later you will see how to install MX Player on FireStick. Make sure you install MX Player first before opening the Terrarium TV app.
Before we start, turn on “Allow apps from unknown sources” on your FireStick. You can do that by heading to Settings > System > Developer Options. Now, follow the steps below.
NOTE: If you already have the previous version of TTV, you need to uninstall it before starting the steps to install patched/modded Terrarium TV app for Fire Stick.
Step 1: Install the Downloader app from Amazon Store if you don’t have it already. Select the search option on the FireStick home-screen and look up for the Downloader app.

Step 6: Wait for the Downloader to download the Terrarium TV Modded APK file on your Fire TV / Fire Stick / Fire TV Cube.
Step 7: As soon as the file is downloaded, the Downloader app will begin the installation process. Go to the bottom right of the window. You will notice that the Next button changes to Install.

Step 9: The App Installed notification indicates that Terrarium TV modded version has been installed on your FireStick device.

How to Use Fire Stick with Terrarium TV ‘Safely’
Before you start streaming with Terrarium TV on your Fire Stick, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Terrarium is visible to your ISP and Government. Reportedly, the current version of TTV is recording the users’ location. 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.
I am using ExpressVPN on my Fire Stick, mobile, and PC. After trying several paid and free VPNs, I can say ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN.
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.
Here’s how to start using ExpressVPN on your FireStick and keep your streaming activities hidden from prying eyes.
Step 1: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.
Step 2: Power ON your Fire TV / Stick and go to “Search” option on the extreme left. Now type “Expressvpn” (without quotes) in the search bar and select ExpressVPN when it shows up in the search results
Step 3: Click “Download” to install the ExpressVPN app for Fire TV / Stick.
Step 4: Open the app and enter your login credentials which you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription. Click “Sign in”
Step 5: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for FireStick.
