How to Install FilmPlus v1.9.2r on Firestick & Android TV

filmplus on firestick

FilmPlus is a free streaming app (APK) that offers access to free movies and TV shows.

This app is a fork of Terrarium TV which is known as the most popular APK of all time in the cord-cutting space.  Terrarium was shut down years ago but duplicates such as this still exist.

The current version of FilmPlus app is V1.9.2r which was released on November 11th, 2023.

This Streaming App provides high-quality links for Movies and TV Shows and has added features which we discuss in detail below.

For these reasons and more, we have included it in our list of Most Popular APKs.

In this guide, we will install FilmPlus on the new 2023 Fire TV Stick 4K Max.

However, these same steps also work on any Fire TV device, Android TV or Google TV system.

In this tutorial, we are using the APKTime which has tons of the most popular streaming apps and tools available today.

How to Remove Ads

While there are other “modded” versions of this available that provide ad-free content, we often suggest avoiding these.

They may contain malware and oftentimes provide various features that do not work properly.

Your best bet is to opt for the official version and eliminate ads using the guide below.

To set up FilmPlus we will use Surfshark VPN which will remove all ads within the application.

Upon launching the app, you will likely notice banner ads at the bottom of the screen.

You will also encounter video ads that play after exiting playback of any Movie or TV Show.

Luckily, the CleanWeb feature within the Surfshark VPN Application will remove these for good.

1. If you see ads at the bottom of your screen, you can easily get rid of this with Surfshark.

2. Launch the Surfshark App and select Features.

3. Enable the CleanWeb feature to remove ads.

4. Return to the application to see your ads are instantly removed.

FilmPlus on Firestick Review

filmplus review

FilmPlus is a simple yet effective streaming app for viewing both Movies and TV Shows.

Some of the most popular features available with this free streaming application include:

  • Real-Debrid Integration
  • Trakt Integration
  • Subtitle Capabilities
  • Ad-Free with Surfshark VPN
  • TV Calendar
  • Movie/TV Show Trailers
  • Favorites Tab
  • Watch History
  • Downloading Capabilities

This streaming app is a high-quality APK that provides both free and paid links.

Unfortunately, we have found that even with Real-Debrid integrated, there are not that many HD links available.

However, the developers do continually update this application so hopefully we will see better performance with Real-Debrid in the future.

With the official application, there are also intrusive ads including on-screen ads and video ads that you will encounter when you exit playback of a Movie or TV Show.

Luckily, these annoying ads can easily be removed with the help of Surfshark VPN which we provide instructions for below.

One thing to note regarding FilmPlus is that this app does not allow for external video player usage.

In fact, it requires that you use BPlayer to stream videos which we show how to install on your Firestick, Android TV, or Google TV device in the following guide.

Is FilmPlus Safe to Use?

It’s important to scan these free streaming APKs for viruses since these aren’t vetted by a reputable 3rd party such as Amazon App Store or Google Play.

Here is the screenshot of what that scan found:

FilmPlus on Firestick apk scan

VirusTotal did not find any suspicious files or malware within the 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 FilmPlus or other applications.

Features, Details, & More

Using FilmPlus on a Firestick, Android TV/Google TV system is simple and offers tons of categories and streaming selections to choose from.

Currently, this application provides both Free and Paid links with premium links not populating very well.

This is why we suggest this free app for those who do not have a premium service and those who do will likely want to opt for an alternative APK for Movies and TV Shows.

One great feature this app provides is its simplicity with only a few settings to choose from.

This includes:

  • Real Debrid Login
  • AllDebrid Login
  • Premiumize Login
  • Trakt Login
  • Backup History

settings

Within the options menu are selections for Movies, TV Shows, History, Favorites, TV Calendar, Downloads, and Settings.

After selecting either Movies or TV Shows, there are various categories including:

  • Discover
  • Favorite
  • Trending
  • Popular
  • Top Rated
  • Airing Today
  • Action/Adventure
  • Comedy
  • Crime
  • Documentary
  • Drama
  • Family
  • Kids
  • Mystery
  • News
  • Reality
  • Soap
  • and more

We tested the app strenuously to determine important app factors such as speed, links available, integration options, and other various settings.

While Real-Debrid capabilities are available, we noticed that there were not many RD links provided after making a content selection.

In the future, we would like to see it work better when paired with a premium resolver service.

Users can access the TV Calendar to see upcoming content daily.

There is a download feature available that allows you to download movies and TV shows directly to your Firestick or Android TV/Google TV device.

When launching the Downloader Manager, you will see the following warning message:

download movies and tv shows warning message

FilmPlus also has the ability to play Movies and TV Shows with subtitles which you can opt for after making a content selection.

You can also easily add content to the Favorites section to store your Favorite Movie & TV Shows.

Favorites option

You can also filter categories by Year, See Recommended streaming options, and much more.

Best of all, the app is frequently updated with bug fixes and more to stay relevant in the streaming community.

Overall, FilmPlus has plenty of options to keep all cord-cutters occupied with high-quality content for both Movies and TV Shows.

Is FilmPlus 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 FilmPlus is distributing copyrighted works without consent.

Users can always access titles that are available for free in the public domain.

Works such as this 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 this.

  1. This is a great app. The only problem is when I resume a movie, sometimes I want to go back to the beginning and the app doesn’t ask to resume or go to the beginning. The setting ask is set, but app doesn’t ask the question. Am I overlooking something?
    Once again great app Troy.

  2. Soo confused I’ve been reading for hours and still can’t figure out how to get filmplus … can someone please shed some light

  3. I’d hold off for a while. The latest update is a dog and you probably don’t want it. And this is from someone who’s used FilmPlus for the last 2 years!

  4. Avatar for Miki Miki says:

    I have a modded version of the latest FilmPlus v 1.5.7
    I got it from the following site

    Do a search for FilmPlus on their home page and then scroll down until you find the link with the blue background. I’ve had it for a few days but it’s just a backup for me. Definitely not my main app for Movies or series. This mod does work perfectly and you’ll find all the settings are there for you, including the option to use an external player. I use VLC.

  5. Morning. I can’t find it anymore and will need a mod version to install today.

  1. Is there anyway to have the movies continuously play say I wanna add five different movies to my favorite list and I want them to continuously play instead of me having to be there and press the play button? Thank you kindly.

  2. Absolutely unusable without Surfshark and Cleanweb. The ads lock up your system and there’s no way of getting out of them – you have to go back to the Amazon home screen and re-start the app. Pity as it used to be my Go-To app.

  3. I started using filmplus when cinema HD was not working anymore.The majority of the links seem to be in Spanish, is there a way to only show links in english?

  4. This app is full of annoying azz ads now! And you can’t click off of them. I always have to close out the app and start it over again. Annoying!

    1. Hey Asil,

      We’ve updated our article that provide instructions to remove ads within the app. Enjoy!

  5. For those wondering why they don’t see the option to select an external player anymore (ex. MX Player), it’s because Film+ removed the option as of version 1.5.7 or later update. If you updated, you can uninstall Film+ and reinstall version 1.5.5 (without losing your viewing history). The annoying part is that everytime you open the app it will request to update again. Keep ADB debugging set to OFF on film+ and click update. On the next screen (warning that film+ has ADB settings set to off) click CANCEL. You will have to redo this process everytime you open film+ to stay on version 1.5.5.

  6. After downloading update and bplayer f+ went to crap. I pick a show, pick a link, push play all I get is a black screen. About to uninstall.

  7. Why have the questions I tried to post on 10/16/22 never gotten answered or even posted? Are you censoring the comments here? I’ve steered several people to your site but I will definitely reconsider if you are going to start acting like the mainstream social media and the fake news organizations. I’m hoping it was not intentional and was something that just slipped by.

    Here’s my original post:
    “Questions about FilmPlus & Real-Debrid “downloads”. I noticed when FilmPlus does find RD links it seems to add all the RD links it finds to “My Downloads” at https://real-debrid.com/downloads.

    For example I watched a movie the other night by clicking one RD link. When I went to https://real-debrid.com/downloads I found 38 links for the same movie in “My Downloads”. I think the same thing happens if you only pull up the links without even clicking on any of them.

    This concerns me because I remember awhile back we had to turn some setting off in either an APK or a Kodi addon that would flood Real-Debrid with pings or something with the good possibility of getting banned from RD if we left the setting on.

    Is this the same thing?
    Do I need to worry about it?
    I couldn’t find a setting in FilmPlus to stop this. Is there one?
    If I can’t stop it, am I risking getting banned from RD if I continue to use FilmPlus? (I couldn’t find a RD contact to ask them this question.)”

    1. Greg, please read the big banner at the top of the comments. If you need support, please use our Insider. We don’t post support questions on these pages.

  8. When will IP Vanish have a feature like clean web so we can get rid of ads too? I have used IP Vanish for years with zero issues or problems and have locked in my low price for several years

  9. Sharalynn Sullivan

    I installed Film+ and downloaded a 1.5G movie. It gave an error message and would not play but I could not access the X to delete it either. After looking everywhere, and trying to find where downloads are stored, I deleted and reinstalled Film+ to get the name of the player used as MX player wasn’t an option on installation. Knowing ExoPlayer didn’t help either as I can’t find access to it. The download no longer shows on Film+ of course. I really don’t want to reset to factory settings but I would like to free up that 1.5G! Thanks for any help.

  10. Hello, love FilmPlus, however I can not get the adult movies to play. Title comes up but when press play a blue line goes arcroo top of screen. I am in Mexico. Thank you for your response!

    1. Where can I post my own question?

      Wish there is a way to adjust subtitles closed captioning font size

  11. I love Film Plus, but cannot get the MX Player to “autoplay” the next episode in a series. The screen just goes back to the links listing for the current episode. It seems that the ExoPlayer attached to Film Plus is the only player that will autoplay. Is there any hope for the MX Player (or the BPlayer that Film Plus seems to want me to use) to “autoplay?”

  12. hey question so after i downloaded filmplus then it ask for another update but now i have ads. any help would be great.

  13. after installing with downloader and opening for first time, when I access settings there is no option for changing the video player. only to log into debrid & trakt. where is the menu to change video player?

      1. Hey Troy, I downloaded FilmPlus but it’s not showing up in my Apps? I tried to download it again and it says I must delete the other App. I can not find it at all in my Apps, when I go to manage apps it’s not there. Not sure how to delete it, if I can’t find it. Thanks for any replies.

  14. I had no issues when I installed the Film+ app until I installed IPVanish. Film+ will pull up the list of subtitles if IPVanish is running, however, once I choose a subtitle, these two messages pop up… “Download sub success” then “Unzip sub error.” If I shut IPVanish off, then the subtitles work. Please help Troy! ?? BTW… I’ve been a follower for a few years now, and appreciate all the hard work you’ve put into making streaming a breeze for us all!

    1. Were you able to find a fix for this? I have just dowmloaded FilmPlus as an IPVanish user, and have noticed that the subtitles/captions don’t load for me either.

  15. So I’ve tried to download film plus but when I click on the download apk I get an error that says webpage not found. (Net::err_http_response_code_failure)????

  16. The apk title says it’s ADFREE but it isn’t. A couple of things here – The ‘arrow’ button is at the bottom right. I was looking quite awhile before I realized it was the play button. Just an observation here but would make more sense at the top somehow/someway?
    The other thing that really bugs me is that my favorites group, or any other group, won’t stay in alphabetical ascending order. I have to change it every time. Other than that it’s a great program – except for ads.

  17. Hi, when I go to search for a film the search function becomes stuck and I have to exit completely. Any resolve on this? Thanks

  18. Are you aware of a legitimate ad free version? The ad at the bottom is very large and if I happen to scroll down and land on the ad box, I can’t back out of it. Thanks for all that you do!

  19. Ronald J Winkler

    When resuming a movie and I want to get back to the beginning, I find I have to get to the beginning manually. This is the only problem I find with filmplus. Great app Troy.

    1. Same here, Ronald! Also, I liked CinemaAPK because even if I left the movie/show, it would remember where I left off and ask if I wanted to resume. Film+ does not, at least I can’t find it. Any helpers? Thank you!
