FilmPlus – How to Use and Install

In this guide we will discuss what FilmPlus is as well as how to use and install it. It’s a fantastic and recommended app for your Firestick and other Android devices also. 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 certainly 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 advanced users who wish to cut the cord.

What is FilmPlus?

FilmPlus appeared on the scene some time 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 a lot of users. The app is without a doubt very user-friendly and easy to install. You can sideload FilmPlus onto almost any Android streaming device as well as 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. Overall, 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 in order to synchronise all of 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


Your online activity is open to threats and snooping from your ISP, hackers, or governments. For that reason, a VPN can help to protect and defend you against any attacks. Using a VPN can also unblock access to the internet in countries where the internet is censored and can bypass other geographical restrictions.

In order to stream anonymously, stay protected, and unlock the internet, I recommend using NordVPN.

Legal Copyright Disclaimer: As has been noted, streaming copyrighted content is unlawful and could get you into legal trouble. On account of this, we do not condone the streaming of copyrighted content. Therefore, check your local laws for streaming content online before doing so.

How to Install FilmPlus

Can I use an External Video Player with FilmPlus?

Yes you certainly can. Although there are no settings to set a default video player. Instead, after you have selected a link to play, you will see the option to “Play with…” Choose this option and then you’ll see options to play with other video players you already have installed. However, if you are someone that likes to watch with subtitles, the FilmPlus internal video player works well for this.

Wrapping Up

In summary, FilmPlus is a great app for watching all of the latest movies and shows. Not only does it integrate well with Real Debrid but also with Trakt. If you are someone that enjoys streaming with subtitles, you will also find this app great for that with the internal video player. This app is undoubtedly worth having installed on your Firestick or other streaming device.
