What is Strix?

Strix is an all-in-one application that lets you stream the latest movies, TV shows, live TV channels, sports, and adult content (optional) – all for free! You can sideload Strix onto almost any Android streaming device, as well as all Firesticks and other Fire TV devices.

This app has categories for Live TV, Movies, TV Shows, Adult, Watchlist, and Settings. 

Strix works by searching and scraping free links from online databases and websites. However, scraping for links works much better with Real DebridReal Debrid 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.

Integration with Trakt is not supported.

Is Strix Safe?

It is recommended to exercise caution and discretion when installing Strix as it may pose potential safety risks.

According to a scan conducted on the application file using Virus Total, 13 security vendors have identified the file as potentially malicious.

Is Strix Legal?

This app does not host any content and is essentially just a search engine. It is, therefore, 100% legal to install and use. However, most links scraped from databases and websites are unlikely to 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

Wrapping Up

Strix certainly is a very good all-round app for streaming movies, TV shows and adult content. 

However, Live TV and Sports are not always reliable with this app. Streams often do not work or load. With this in mind, you may wish to use a backup option from this list of Free Live TV Apps, Free Live TV Websites, or use a Paid IPTV service.
