Popcorn Time is a streaming application that lets you watch movies and TV shows on your device. It comes with an integrated media player to stream the media content. Unlike torrent applications, you can stream the media without downloading them. It scraps the files from various torrent sources and streams them completely for free. Even though it is designed for Android devices, you can use this app on Amazon Firestick/Fire TV streaming devices. Since Popcorn Time is not available on the Amazon store, users need to access either ES File Explorer or Downloader app to install Popcorn Time Apk on Firestick. While downloading the apps from the third-party or unofficial source, you need to enable the Apps from Unknown source feature on your Firestick or Fire TV.
ATTENTION: Since Popcorn Time is an open-source application, it streams a large number of media including the copyrighted media for free. While streaming movies through Popcorn Time, your IP will be monitored by ISPs and Government agencies. A good VPN masks your real IP address by masking your internet connection and keeps your internet activities 100% anonymous. We recommend NordVPN to safeguard your privacy while using Popcorn Time.
