Stremio is a free media center application that works very similarly to Kodi and Plex. Just like Kodi, we can install 3rd party add-ons that allow for the streaming of on-demand movies, TV shows, live TV, and much more. For these reasons and more, we have included Stremio within our Best APKs list.

While there are many similarities between Stremio and Kodi, this streaming application is different in one major area – its focus on add-ons. Stremio has a dedicated community of developers creating addons specifically for this platform. There are also some great built-in features like a personalized recommendation system using machine learning.

The following steps will show you how to install Stremio APK on the Amazon Fire TV Stick Lite. These same steps also work for those using the Firestick 4K, 3rd Gen Fire TV Stick, Fire TVs, Fire TV Cube, and any Fire TV device. For those using an Android device such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL Boxes, and more, you can find Stremio in the Google Play Store.

Stremio Setup

With the Stremio app installed we must now set up the app for use. However, before using the app we must first connect to a VPN to ensure safe streaming. This app allows access to third party add-ons and we can’t trust these developers.

If you are using an Amazon Firestick or any Fire TV device, installing a VPN is a simple process outlined in our tutorial below.

It’s impossible for us to determine whether these unverified applications hold the proper licensing. If and when an application is deemed illegal, we notify our users immediately and update reports on our Website to reflect that information.

At first glance, it would appear that some Stremio Add-ons are distributing copyrighted works without consent.

Users may legally access movies/TV shows that fall under the Public Domain. Works in the Public Domain are not protected by copyright laws and may be downloaded, streamed, and shared without any legal ramifications.

In conclusion, the end-user is responsible for all content accessed through apps such as Stremio. We recommend using 100% legal and verified free streaming options instead of Stremio. You will find a link to the best free legal movie/TV show apps below.
