AstonCine – How to Install and Use on Firestick and Android

This guide will discuss AstonCine and how to use and install it. This app provides access to a wide range of movies and TV shows and can be installed on almost any device, e.g. Firestick, Fire Cube, Nvidia Shield, Android box, Chromecast, phones, tablets, and PCs (via an emulator such as Bluestacks or Nox). 

However, this app cannot be installed from the Google Play or Amazon App stores. To install it, it must be sideloaded.

The Amazon Firestick is a popular streaming device that offers excellent value for money and can be jailbroken with minimal effort. It is a perfect choice for anyone looking to cut the cord, regardless of their experience with streaming devices.

What is AstonCine?

AstonCine appeared on the scene around November 2020 and is a replacement clone of the popular ZiniTevi app.

It is a video-on-demand app that lets you stream the latest movies and TV shows for free. It’s a one-click app where the user does not have to search for or click on links. Instead, a selected movie or episode automatically streams when you press play.

The one-click nature of this app makes it very popular with users. You can sideload AstonCine onto almost any Android streaming device and all Fire TV devices.

How Does AstonCine Work?

AstonCine works by searching and scraping free sources from online databases and websites. When a suitable source is found, it will automatically start to stream.

However, scraping for links works much better with Real Debrid. Real Debrid is a premium service that searches for premium quality sources. This provides more buffer-free and high-quality sources, up to 4K in resolution.

This app is also compatible with Trakt. This is an excellent way of synchronising your favourite movies, shows, watchlists and more across multiple devices and applications. With Trakt, you can always keep on top of what you’re watching and, what’s more, never miss an episode!

Is AstonCine Legal?

Yes. This app does not host any content and is essentially just a search engine. It is, therefore, 100% legal to install and use.

However, it is unlikely that most links scraped from databases and websites hold the proper licencing for distributing the content. In reality, this means you will be unlawfully streaming copyrighted content.

Doing so could get you into legal trouble. Accordingly, you may prefer to use this app with a VPN
