Cinema HD – How to Use and Install

In this guide we will discuss what Cinema HD is as well as how to use and install it. This app can be installed on almost any device e.g. Firestick, Fire Cube, Nvidia Shield, Android box, Chromecast, phones, tablets, PC and more. However, this app cannot be installed from the Google Play or Amazon app store. In order to install it, it must be sideloaded.

The Amazon Firestick is undoubtedly the most popular streaming device on the market right now due to its low price and ability to jailbreak it with just a few simple tweaks. It’s a perfect streaming device for beginners as well as advanced users who wish to cut the cord.

How Does Cinema HD Work?

Cinema HD works by searching and scraping free links from online databases and websites. However, scraping for links works much better with Real Debrid. Real Debrid is a premium service that searches for premium-quality links. Overall, this provides many more links in buffer-free and high quality, up to 4K in resolution.

Is Cinema HD Legal?

Yes. Cinema HD does not host any content and is in essence just a search engine. It is therefore 100% legal to install and use. However, it is unlikely that the majority of 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
