This in-depth report of Strix APK will provide you with important information that you need to know about this app on Firestick/Fire TV & Android TV Box.
Is Strix safe to use? Is Strix legal? How do I install Strix APK? We will answer those questions and more in this article.
The reason why we ask legal questions is due to the fact that Strix appears to have content not available within the public domain. This is oftentimes a warning sign.
Strix APK is a new VOD streaming application for Movies, TV Shows, Live TV channels, sports, and adult content.
It provides sources for streaming and works well, especially for those using Real-Debrid.
We can easily install Strix 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.

Strix APK Features & Details
Strix is working fabulously for Movies and TV Shows with tons of high-quality streaming links.
It works especially well when paired with Real-Debrid which we show how to do in the guide below.
For those who wish to use an external video player such as MX, this can also be adjusted in settings. Refer to the MX Player Set up Guide below for instructions.
While there are no subtitle options within Strix itself, users can refer to our Subtitle Guide for instructions on using closed captioning within the app.
Although Strix does include a Live TV category, we found the channels to be unreliable and often times not working.
We suggest an IPTV Service for live streaming.
TROYPOINT does not own or operate any IPTV service. TROYPOINT does not receive any revenue or affiliate commissions from any service. We don’t know if a service holds the proper licensing for the channels that they deliver. Always use a VPN with unverified IPTV services as their servers may be insecure.
Overall, Strix offers a simple interface with tons of streaming choices making it an all-around fabulous APK.
