This in-depth report of HD Movie Box will provide you with important information that you need to know about this app on Firestick/Fire TV & Android TV Box.
Is HD Movie Box safe to use? Is HD Movie Box legal? How do I install HD Movie Box? We will answer those questions and more in this article.
The reason why we ask legal questions is due to the fact that HD Movie Box isn’t available in popular app stores such as Amazon App Store or Google Play.
This is oftentimes a warning sign.
Since this app can’t be installed through an app store, it must be sideloaded which we display in the screenshot guide below.
HD Movie Box is a Movie and TV Show APK, and appears to be a clone of Bee TV.
It is currently working well pulling in tons of great links and has numerous features for personalization.
For these reasons and more, HD Movie Box is listed as one of the Most Popular APK’s by TROYPOINT.
If you have a real-debrid account, HD Movie Box APK will provide even more links at your disposal.
I highly suggest integrating real-debrid to get the most out of this application.
We can easily install HD Movie Box APK on the Amazon Firestick 4K.
However, these same steps also work for those using the Firestick Lite, 3rd Gen Fire TV Stick, Fire TVs, Fire TV Cube, and any Fire TV device.
This process also applies to those using Android devices such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL Boxes, Chromecast, Android TV Boxes, phones, tablets, and more.
TROYPOINT TIP: The best way to get the most out of your Firestick or Fire TV is by “jailbreaking” the device.
