Want to stream the latest movies and TV shows in HD quality for free? FilmPlus is one of the top applications that allows you to do just that.
In this guide, I‘ll be showing you step-by-step how to download and install FilmPlus APK on both Firestick and Android TV boxes.
We‘ll cover everything from enabling developer options to removing ads so you can enjoy an optimal viewing experience.
By the end, you‘ll have FilmPlus up and running so you can start streaming thousands of hours of entertainment!
What is FilmPlus and Is It Legal?
Before we get into the installation process, let‘s first understand what is FilmPlus and the legalities surrounding apps like this.
FilmPlus is a free streaming application for Android devices that provides free access to movies and TV show content. It is similar to other popular apps like BeeTV, CatMouse, and CyberFlix TV.
The app itself is 100% legal to download and install. However, some of the free movie and TV show links indexed within FilmPlus may be illegally downloaded pirated content.
Streaming pirated copyrighted content is generally illegal. But the laws are still somewhat vague when it comes to end users streaming this type of infringing content.
According to statistics from the Content Delivery & Security Association, approximately $29.2 billion in economic losses incurred in 2017 from streaming piracy. And global web traffic from streaming piracy grew by over 160% between 2010-2018.
So while apps like FilmPlus themselves are not illegal, you could potentially get into legal trouble for streaming copyright-protected content through them. Not to mention it hurts content creators who depend on legal views and purchases.
The safest way to use FilmPlus legally is to strictly stream content that is either free public domain media, or content from services you have an active subscription for.
I advise against viewing any pirated streams or downloading copyrighted movies and shows illegally through apps like this. But ultimately it‘s up to you to use good judgement when streaming.
Okay, now that the legal disclaimer is out of the way, let‘s dive into how to install FilmPlus on your streaming device!
Download FilmPlus APK
FilmPlus is not available on any official app stores like the Amazon Appstore or Google Play Store. So you‘ll need to download the APK file directly from the developer‘s website.
