Strix APK on Firestick, Fire TV, and Android TV Box – Is It Safe & Legal?

strix apk

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.

Legal Notice: TROYPOINT will not be held liable for data breaches, infected/hacked devices, or ISP logging caused by using unverified 3rd party applications, IPTV Services, addons, or streaming websites.


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.

Those using Android devices such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL Boxes, and more can install Strix within the Unlinked Application.

TROYPOINT TIP: The best way to get the most out of your Firestick or Fire TV is by “jailbreaking” the device.

Is Strix APK Safe to Use?

Before we install this app, I will scan the official Android APK installation file with VirusTotal.

Here is the screenshot of the scan results:

VirusTotal did find one suspicious file within the APK which looks like something pertaining to ad-ware.

We always preach about the importance of using a VPN with questionable applications such as Strix.

When we see flagged files in VirusTotal, a trusted VPN is pretty much required to protect your identity and security.

Now, here are the steps that we went through to install Strix through the official Website.

Strix APK Installation Process

In order to review this app, the first thing we need to do is install it.

In this report, I will be installing Strix on a Fire TV Stick Lite.

However, the same steps can be used to install the app on an Android TV Box, NVIDIA SHIELD, or other devices that run the Android operating system.

We will be installing Strix with the free application called Downloader which is available for free install on Fire TV and Android TV devices.

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.

How To Use OpenSubtitles within Strix

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.

Is Strix APK 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 Strix 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 Strix.
