OnStream APK Features & Details

As noted above, OnStream APK is a simple app for viewing Movies and TV Shows.

Exposed VPN Reminder

You will notice the user-friendly interface with various options to choose from.

The application does provide registration via email which will provide some added features.

If you do so, we suggest using an anonymous email address such as StartMail.

Unlike other popular streaming apps, OnStream APK does not provide real-debrid or trakt integration.

Fortunately, links provided have auto-play capabilities for instant streaming of Movies and TV Shows.

These links play extremely fast and most times in high definition including 1080p.

While there are tons of Movies and TV Shows available, there are no live streams available within this app.

We suggest an IPTV Service for those who wish to stream live television channels on Firestick and Android TV.

  1. Wouldn’t install on a 2nd gen firestick but did install on a 4kMax. many selections did not play. I guess no streams – maybe they need to up the number of providers but only 2 options in “Settings” neither of which are very useful.

  2. On my buzztv XRS4500 the android versionit installs, runs but will not play any movies. For android tv it says it installs but cannot open or find it anywhere.

  3. Onstream is not working for me either. Also, the website is no longer up and running. “Beware” of the website They talk about how to fix it if it’s not working and have a list of alternative apk’s (names of very popular apk’s) in case you can’t get it working. I downloaded Ocean Streamz OS.2.1.6 apk and ran it through virus total and it came up with 11 trojans and viruses.

    1. Addendum to what I posted above. I still have the same Onstream app and found it works after I added a user name and e-mail address ( as Troypoint suggests above) but also I must have a VPN “on” or nothing shows up (no posters or titles etc.) for movies and TV. Other than that it works now.

  4. I’ve been using onstream for a while now and it’s been pretty flawless …except for yesterday where it just stopped working. I waited 24 hours went back to it and it’s working pretty well but the subtitles aren’t working at all any more. I need those. So I tried to download the updated version from thr 1.0.2 to thr new one 1.0.8. I went to downloader put in the title and it brought me to the online page for thr update. I did the update but it didn’t update the old version and there’s no sign of the new one I downloaded. anyone have a suggestion?


      Works fine on ONN for me also, put in on Firestick and all I got was ads and couldn’t get cursor to work correctly. Older version works fine of me on another firestick. This new update may not be so swell after all.

  5. I have an older TV. When I went through the steps to download this app, I got a message that it failed to parse. It did not download on my fire stick. What should I do?

    1. I have the save problem on my other firestick as well. It’s a first gen stick. Any way to resolve this ?

      1. “Any way to resolve this?”

        Yes, trash the 1st gen stick. These are just not capable of functioning any more!

  6. Troy I have 3 fire sticks. I used Stremio religiously. But now I only have 1 fire stick that runs stremio the other 2 can’t seem to find or load any adding? can you please help? Do you have a new video on how to install step by step foe this? PLEASE HELP

  7. I downloaded this app and find it is by far so easy to use. Movies load right away with no picking out links and if subtitles are available they are easy to use. The only con is limited movies available, but what are, is mostly the latest. Perhaps in time they will get far more movies. I really think this is one of the best and most reliable apps out there today.

  8. I haven’t had any problems with the app but found it odd that Real Debrid isn’t a part of it to deal with buffering issues.

  9. I downloaded Onstream but when I click on it it doesn’t open it just keeps spinning. I have tried it with Surfshark connected and disconnected. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

  10. It’s a pretty good APK. Very clean and easy to navigate. I did not register, I wonder if there are limitations for not registering?
    my only con, if it’s really a con is, I wish it showed more categories.

  11. Works really well on my fire stick 4 k and on my Sony Bravia. Very fast loads. Great quality. Only issue is that they don’t show many popular or trending movies or tv shows. just a few. But you can search, and almost anything comes up. Great app

  12. This app works great, but I was watching a movie and 1/2 way into it it started buffering. This was my first movie using this app & I really like it. I hope it doesn’t continue to buffer half way into a movie. I will try other movies when I have more time to check it out.

    1. I have now had time to watch multiple movies using this app and have not had anymore problems with buffering. This is a great 1-click app, I like it much better than HDO Box.

  13. I don’t think it works for all fire sticks. I have the 2nd generation and it only gives me an error message.
