FreeFlix HQ – How to Use and Install

In this guide we will discuss what FreeFlix HQ 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 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 FreeFlix HQ?

FreeFlix HQ 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 also has a live TV section. The app is without a doubt very easy to install. However, a mouse toggle may be required for some devices. You can sideload FreeFlix HQ onto almost any Android streaming device as well as all Fire TV devices.

How Does FreeFlix HQ Work?

FreeFlix HQ works by chiefly searching and scraping free movie and TV show 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.

Live TV works chiefly by importing m3u files. FreeFlix HQ provides sources for live TV channels or you can add your own.

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 FreeFlix HQ Legal?

Due to the nature of this app, it’s legality is uncertain. However, it is unlikely that the majority of links scraped from databases and websites hold the proper licencing for distributing the content. Nor is it likely that the correct licencing for broadcasting live TV channels has been obtained. 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.

Wrapping Up

In summary, FreeFlix HQ may not the best app for everyone. Not only does the live TV not work correctly but loading links for movies and shows is also unreliable. However, it is certainly worth taking a look at if you are looking for back up options for free streaming apps.
