FilmPlus – How to Use and Install

This guide will discuss what FilmPlus is and 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. 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.

What is FilmPlus?

FilmPlus appeared on the scene sometime during 2020. It is a video-on-demand app that lets you stream the latest movies and TV shows for free but with adverts. What’s more, it is based on the old Terrarium TV layout making it familiar to many users. The app is, without a doubt, very user-friendly and easy to install. You can sideload FilmPlus onto almost any Android streaming device and all Fire TV devices.

How Does FilmPlus Work?

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

This app is also compatible with Trakt. This is a great tool to synchronise 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 FilmPlus Legal?

Yes. This app 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
