This guide explains how to install Yidio on FireStick. You can use these instructions to install Yidio on all Fire TV devices, including FireStick 4K and 4K Max, FireStick Lite, and Fire TV Cube.
What Is Yidio?
Yidio is a streaming service offering all major movie and TV shows content providers on one platform. Yidio works mainly by pulling content links from free sites and popular premium platforms across the web.
If you value easy navigation, timely content updates, and efficient content categorization, you will enjoy using Yidio. Yidio’s interface includes various categories for filtering content, like Free, Subscription, Most Popular, and Trending. Yidio also utilizes simple graphics and navigation to provide a comfortable browsing experience.
You don’t need to create an account with Yidio to browse the available content. But, having an account will allow you to use the app’s advanced features like creating show playlists.
Attention, FireStick Users!
Governments and ISPs constantly monitor your online activity, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick could lead to serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend getting the best FireStick VPN to mask your IP address and securely stream your favorites.
I personally use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN available. Not only is it easy to install on any device, it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, if you're not 100% satisfied, you can always get a refund. ExpressVPN is currently also offering a whopping 3 extra months free on their annual plan!
Is Yidio Safe and Legal?
Yidio is a third-party app that is unavailable on the Amazon App Store. However, it’s available on other official app stores, like the Google Play Store, so we can be confident that any content accessed via the app is legal.
As far as safety is concerned, I scanned the app on VirusTotal and it wasn’t flagged as malicious, which you can see below. That said, since Yidio has to be installed on FireStick via a third-party source, I recommend protecting yourself with ExpressVPN just in case.
How to Subscribe to Yidio
Because some of Yidio’s streaming content comes from premium sites, not everything on the app is free. Fortunately, Yidio has a free section with a good selection of movies and TV shows. To check whether a particular movie or TV show is free, you’ll have to navigate to the movie’s description page, then check for a “Totally Free” tag. If the show doesn’t have the tag, then it’s not free.
Yidio’s premium subscription starts with a 7-day free trial. After the trial expires, you can choose between the $4 monthly or $48 annual subscription option.
