The major issue with unverified streaming apps/websites is that there are many bad actors in this space, which we note throughout our website.

We’ve seen instances in the past with unverified app developers stealing user data, hosting files with viruses, and other malicious activities.

In this case, these bad actors are taking advantage of Cinema HD’s popularity and trying to trick users into installing malicious APK files.

In our Cinema HD tutorial, the APK file that we are showing is 100% clean of viruses/malware and is used by many other trusted resources in the streaming space.

  1. Outstanding service from TROY. Cinema is still working in Scotland but have switched to one of Troy’s recommended public access Movie apk’s which seems to be working well.
    Wouldn’t risk any changes without TROYPOINT advice. Great work Troy.

  2. Cinema HD still working in the UK, and still updating the TV shows how long it will last for who knows.

  3. If the Cinema HD still working, should assume it’s a clone or they haven’t shut it down in our area yet?

  4. If you have a VPN on your computer from which your firestick is getting it’s signal, do you need to have the loaded on the firestick also???

    1. TROYPOINT - Ryan

      Hi Michael, unless your VPN is setup on your network router, then yes you need to install the individual VPN app for each device you want protected.

  5. I recently added TeaTV because of the eventual loss of Cinema HD, but I am only getting streams that show 2K nothing comes up in 4K. Are others seeing this or is something I can correct?

  6. I am finding that most all of the movies and shows/series I liked on the Cinema App are now on the Voodoo Streamz app.

  7. Cinema has been less and less useful over the last few years. I dumped it close to 2 years ago. Don’t understand why anyone would be looking for a replacement. There are much better options out there.

  8. Cinema HD still working excellent here in Las Vegas although I do use Cyberflex as my backup just in case but I rarely use it. Cinema HD still gives me a ton of Real-Debrid streams so far.

    1. TROYPOINT - Ryan

      Hi Graham, these clones would still work but many come with viruses and malicious files. I’d suggest uninstalling

  9. The original cinemaHD is still working fine for me. When it finally stops I hope TroyPoint will be able to recommend a safe alternative. I will not be downloading any apk unless it’s been endorsed by TroyPoint.

  10. Hi all
    I am a big fan of CinemaHD it was awesome. With it in process of shutting down. Can you all suggest to me another reliable movie streaming app to download? Hopefully it can be paired with Real-Debrid.

    Thank y’all

    Sig

    Thanks so much for the continuous updates! Cinema still working here, the only problem I’m having is I constantly need to connect with IPVanish nearly every time I turn on the tv. Is this normal? Thanks all!

  12. i am still using the existing cinema hd as of 5/13/2022 and it is performing as normal. what is up with that? dennis

    1. TROYPOINT - Ryan

      Hi Dennis, I’d revisit our previous article on Cinema -https://troypoint.com/cinema-hd-apk-not-working/

  13. Peter Tomkinson

    Hi, my Cinema app is still working fine. Is there any idea when it will close down? I have installed filmplus as a backup, had to copy all my favourites over which was a bit of a pain. What a shame the Cinema app is going, I have found it perfect in all the time I have used it.

  14. I recently downloaded the cinema app using fire stick tricks. Does that mean I am infected? I will delete it pronto but how do I find out if I have malware now?

    1. TROYPOINT - Ryan

      Hi Michelle, the Firestick Tricks website is run by scammers and frauds. We suggest our visitors completely avoid that site.

  15. Off this subject looking for some tutorials on customizing the Nvidia Shield Dashboards with Widgets etc. Be nice if the process wasn’t a science project and just a simple apk install for a customized dashboard, however, i know it’s probably not possible. I tries sone different launchers and such enabled widgets in remote adb. Anyone have a good how to walk through?

  16. Throttlejockey

    Yes indeed! Thank you to all that have our backs!! Don’t understand what drives people to do damage and hurt for what purpose!

  17. First, thank you for the heads up! Second, what would you suggest as a viable option to replace Cinema HD, as this has been my go-to option for several years now?

    Thanks again!!!

    Thanks again!!!

  19. Cinema still working here in Dallas. However, TeaTV has the same exact lineup and seems to be more reliable. and gives you what you clicked on. If you want to watch a movie TeaTV gives you what you want, Cinema on the other hand, as many of you know, gives you something different. Thanks, Troy, for all the info, been very helpful to this novice.

  20. Original Cinema HD still is working in the Delaware area. Any idea when it will be gone for good? I personally am sticky with what Troy always suggests!
    BS.

    1. Yes, it’s kinda still working but likely will return fewer and fewer streams at time goes on. Great pity as Cinema has been most peoples’ go-to app for almost 5 years!

  21. First I would like to thank you for the time and to put in to find these clone Cinema HDS. Also all the others that take the time really sure we enjoy safe streaming. I wouldn’t doubt if this was some part of copyright infringement groups or whatever the other companies that are trying to take down the streaming apps. Plus the freedom to stream whatever is over the air. I see third-party apps that kept taking down still working and it leads to leads me to believe who is running them and like I say thank you so much for the time and effort that goes into safe and enjoyable streaming.
