How To Install Mobdro On Fire TV Or Stick

Install Mobdro On Fire TV StickThis tutorial will show you how to install Mobdro on Fire TV or Stick quickly and without a computer.

Mobdro is  one of the best Android streaming applications that does a great job steaming live video.  Mobdro’s Web site defines the application as a tool that constantly looks for free video streams available on the web and makes them accessible on your mobile device.

The great thing about the Fire TV and Stick is that it is based off the Android operating system which means that we can sideload Mobdro onto these devices.  Unfortunately, this is not an application that is available within the Amazon Fire TV app store but the tutorial below will show you how to quickly install this application on to your Fire TV or Stick.

Most of us use Kodi with the Fire TV/Stick on a regular basis for movies and tv shows but live streams always seam to be a problem.  Mobdro fills this void and allows us to install the application alongside Kodi which turns the Fire TV or Stick into a streaming powerhouse.

How To Install Mobdro On Fire TV or Stick Tutorial

Please view the video below as it will go through all necessary details to install Mobdro onto your Fire TV or Stick.  The instructions below the video are simply general instructions without details.



Step 1 Go into Fire TV Settings / Device or System / Developer Options / turn on Apps from Unknown sources by hovering over the option and clicking the select button on your remote.

Step 2 Go to search button and download and install the free application called Downloader.

Important:  Many Internet Service Providers are now blocking access or throttling download speeds for applications like Mobdro.  I use a VPN on my Fire TV and Sticks which allows me to access all application and Kodi addons that my ISP tries to block.  Use the link below to install a VPN onto your Fire TV.

    Any idea why the Mobdro icon will not show up in my apps on my 2nd fire tv? I followed Troys exact instructions 2nd time on 2nd fire tv yet icon don’t show after multiple reboots and an uninstall and reinstall.
    I’m using IPVanish.

      Hi Mike, if you aren’t seeing it on the screen that lists all of your apps when you hold down the home button and click Apps, try going into Fire TV Settings, De-register your device and then register again. I was having same problems on one of my Fire TV Sticks doing this and reactivating worked.

        Thanks for the feedback Troy, unfortunately that did not work. It’s very odd issue I suppose.

        I put Mobdro and Terrarium TV on my spare room firestick I gave to a friend as he is a struggling father of 2 who just got the low income $10/month internet (slow but enough to stream one tv decent) and it worked flawless. The kids are exstatic to have Disney and other premium Chanel’s free.

        I put IPVanish on it and signed in with my account obviously telling him to always be sure it’s connected before streaming since they may monitor low income families internet activity I’m sure.
        I hope it doesn’t violate any IPVanish policies since technically it’s my fire stick.

        If you think of anything else for my Fire tv issue, please let me know.
        Keep up the awesome work with your emails and tuitorials. 🙂

        IT WORKED!
        I tried it a third time and it appeared then. All the other icons were jumbled around but all in all it fixed the issue.

        My mobdro did not show up after the installation I saw it but when I exit out it disappeared.

    Just curious why ipvanish is your vpn service of choice. Late 2016 you were advertising PIA. I’m sure you get advertising $$ from these vendors for pushing their particular brand. Is either of those two a better choice than the other. I ask because I went with your recommendation of PIA a few months back and now you only mention ipvanish.

    • Troy February 4, 2017 at 9:50 am - Reply

      Keep using PIA if it is working for you. I switched due to the fact that IPVanish user interface works better and was dealing with too many emails with people having problems with PIA user interface that didn’t work well with Fire TV remote.

    Is it normal for this download to take a very long time? Idk why it’s taking me like 20 minutes to download this when I can stream movies and TV shows with no problem at all

    • Troy January 15, 2017 at 6:41 pm - Reply

      I just tested download and it is working fine. Not sure why it is taking so long.

    Download Cetus play from the play store and side load numerous apps to the firestick or fire TV with the click of a button.

    I downloaded Mobdro as you outlined in the video. It works great. However, when I exit out of it and click on Kodi, I cannot find Mobdro. When I go back into download, I have to do the whole thing over again to get back to Mobdro. Where is Mobdro app located after you download it? Is it located in Kodi if so where?

    • Troy January 13, 2017 at 6:55 pm - Reply

      Hi Mike, I will post the same answer here that I replied to within your email as well. You can launch any Android app through Kodi by going into Programs / Android Apps and you will see your Android apps there. Regarding your apps not showing under applications on your Fire TV, this could be for a couple of reasons. Some have tried deregistering their device and then register again through settings / Account. Also, make sure your firmware is up to date. Fire TV Settings / System or Device / About / Check for Updates.

        I was trying to follow these instructions but I can not finde the program tab in Kodi. Please help!

        • Kevin Herrick January 18, 2017 at 10:02 pm - Reply

          Hey Patricia, go into settings, then it is under the appearance section at some point. There will be an option to show the Programs group, just click on that then it should be available from the kodi home screen. All the best.
