Cinema HD APK on Firestick/Android in September 2021 – Is It Safe & Legal?

cinema apk

This in-depth report on Cinema HD APK will provide you with important information that you need to know about this app on Firestick/Fire TV & Android TV Box.

Is Cinema APK safe to use? Is Cinema APK legal? How do I install Cinema APK? We will answer those questions and more in this article.

The reason why we ask legal questions is due to the fact that Cinema HD isn’t available in popular app stores such as Amazon App Store or Google Play. This is sometimes a warning sign.


Legal Notice: TROYPOINT will not be held liable for data breaches, infected/hacked devices, or ISP logging caused by using unverified 3rd party applications, IPTV Services, addons, or streaming websites.

Since this app can’t be installed through an app store, it must be sideloaded which we illustrate in the screenshot guide below.

Many also refer to this process of sideloading Cinema APK as “jailbreaking” their streaming devices.

How to Jailbreak Firestick

Cinema HD APK is a popular Movie & TV Show streaming application that can be installed on just about every Android device.

Cinema features tons of working links and is constantly updated so you are never short on content.

It also has the ability to integrate a Real-Debrid account for users with this software. This is one of the best fixes to help Stop Firestick Buffering.

Is Cinema HD Safe to Use?

Before I install this, I first want to scan the official Android APK installation file with VirusTotal.

Here is the screenshot of the scan results.

VirusTotal did not find any suspicious files or malware within the Cinema HD APK file.

However, this does not mean we shouldn’t protect ourselves when streaming content from this unverified app.

The best way to do this is with a VPN that will secure your identity and anonymity when using Viva or other applications.

Cinema APK Details, Description, and More

Due to its popularity and content library, Cinema can also be found within our lists of Best Firestick Apps and Best Firestick Channels.

Besides the ability to stream Movies and TV Shows, Cinema also offers the option to download content.

If you are using the software to download titles, I highly suggest using a VPN to protect your online identity from hackers, developers, and your ISP.

The new version of Cinema now allows for an external video player, subtitles, and does not crash on NVIDIA SHIELD or other Android Oreo devices.

Upon selecting your viewing choice, Cinema provides you with numerous sources. Oftentimes, these are in 720 and 1080p HD.

If you encounter videos with no sound while using MX Player, we suggest trying the fix below.

Parse Error When Updating

Some of you may encounter a “Parse Error” when updating through the built-in updater in Cinema HD APK.

If this happens, simply follow the installation instructions again above through Downloader and this will perform an update for Cinema APK if it is already installed on your streaming device.

Is Cinema HD APK Legal?

It’s impossible for TROYPOINT to determine whether these unverified applications hold the proper licensing.

If and when an application is deemed illegal, we notify our users immediately and update reports on our Website to reflect that information.

At first glance, it would appear that Cinema HD is distributing copyrighted works without consent.

You will notice in the example above that we used the free public domain movie, Night of the Living Dead as an example.

Works in the Public Domain are not protected by copyright laws and may be downloaded, streamed, and shared without any legal ramifications.

In conclusion, the end-user is responsible for all content accessed through apps such as Cinema HD.
