This step-by-step guide will provide you with instructions on How to Install Vudu on Firestick, Fire TV, and Fire TV Cubes.
Vudu is an online video on demand (VOD) streaming service that provides users access to thousands of Movies and TV Shows.
Unlike many other online streaming services, Vudu does not require a monthly subscription fee.
Instead of paying a monthly fee, Vudu users can pay for Movies or TV Shows individually that you can either rent or own. Prices for renting vary from $0.99 to $5.99, while buying content can range from $4.99 to $24.99.
This is a plus for those who only want to pay for the Movies and TV Shows they want. Vudu also offers special rates for renting and purchasing content on a continued basis.
For these reasons and more, we have included Vudu within our Best Firestick Apps list.
Its content library can be rented and streamed with several supported devices. As of this writing, Vudu is compatible with the following:
- Android TV Boxes (NVIDIA Shield, Mi Box, etc.)
- Apple TV
- Xbox One
- PlayStation 4
- Smart TVs (LG, Samsung, Vizio, etc.)
- Web browsers such as Chrome and Firefox
For more information on the service and available content, check out the official Vudu site below.
Because Vudu is not in the Amazon App Store, we will need to side-load the application using Downloader. If you are using an Android TV Box, NVIDIA SHIELD, Mi Box, etc. Vudu is available within the Google Play Store.
The steps below show how to install Vudu on a Firestick 4K. However, these steps will also work on the Fire TV and Fire TV Cubes.

Warning! Protect Yourself With A VPNMost cord-cutters use a VPN and rightfully so.
The free streaming applications, addons, and paid IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.
Without a VPN, your IP Address is being logged.
Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.
Your current IP Address is 22.214.171.124 – When you use a VPN, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.
A VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet.
This will prevent your Internet Service Provider, app/addon developers, government agencies, and any 3rd party from logging what you’re accessing online.
The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is IPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy.
Its important to use a VPN that is fast since we are streaming large HD files. Its also crucial to find one that keeps no logs of what their subscribers access while online.
Setting up IPVanish VPN on your streaming device is simple!
Step 1 Register for an IPVanish VPN account by clicking the link below.
This exclusive link provides you with a hefty discount, only available to TROYPOINT visitors like you.

Step 2 – Hover over the search icon on your Firestick, Fire TV, or Fire TV Cube and type in “Ipvanish”
You may also find the IPVanish App in the Google Play Store for those of you who are using Android TV Boxes, phones, and tablets.
Step 3 – Click the IPVanish VPN option that appears.
Step 4 – Click the IPVanish icon under Apps & Games.
Step 5 – Click Download.
Step 6 – Click Open.
Step 7 – Enter your username and password to login. Your username is the email that you used to register for IPVanish service with and your password is automatically generated and emailed to you.
Step 8 – Click Connect button.
Step 9 – Click OK for Connection request if it appears.
Step 10 – You will notice that your IP Address changes along with location of connection. You are now operating anonymously through your device.
Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.
Congratulations! You are now protected by a VPN which means everything that you stream or access through your Firestick or Android TV Box is hidden from the rest of the world.
If you ever need to stop the VPN service, simply re-launch the application and click the DISCONNECT button.
