How to Install BeeTV APK on Firestick/Android (Cinema HD Alternative)
This in-depth review of BeeTV APK on Firestick will provide you with important information that you need to know about this streaming app.
Is BeeTV safe to use? Is BeeTV legal? How do I install BeeTV? We will answer those questions and more in this article.
The reason why we ask legal questions is due to the fact that BeeTV isn’t available in popular app stores such as Amazon App Store or Google Play. This is oftentimes a warning sign.
Since this app can’t be installed through an app store, it must be sideloaded which we display in the screenshot guide below.
BeeTV is a popular Firestick app and streaming APK with tons of movies, TV shows, documentaries, and more for your viewing pleasure.
Important Note: BeeTV has recently been updated, which means more link providers have been added and miscellaneous bugs have been fixed.
And with Cinema HD slowly shutting down, BeeTV is proving to be one of the most popular Cinema HD alternatives.
We can easily install BeeTV 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 unlocking the device.

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

In order to review this app, the first thing we need to do is install it. In this report, I will be installing BeeTV 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 BeeTV with the free application called Downloader which is available for free installation on Fire TV and Android TV devices.
1. Install the Downloader app from your respective App Store (Amazon App Store or Google Play) and turn on Apps from Unknown Sources in the settings of your streaming device.

7. Scroll down and click the download button that says “Android Version.”
Important Note: If using an Android TV device or Chromecast with Google TV, you must first install the Downloader Browser Plugin.
You can do this by typing in “http://browser.aftvnews.com” within the URL box, or viewing that section in our Downloader Tutorial.

Warning! Protect Yourself With IPVanish VPN
Most cord-cutters use a IPVanish VPN and rightfully so.
The free streaming applications, addons, and IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.
Without a IPVanish, 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 identifying IP Address is 220.127.116.11
When you use IPVanish, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.
IPVanish 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.
It’s 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.

Step 2 – From the home screen hover over Find.
For those of you using Android TV devices, you can easily install the IPVanish app directly through Google Play Store.
Step 3 – Scroll down and click Search.
Step 4 – Type in “Ipvanish” and click the first option.
Step 5 – Click the IPVanish VPN app.
Step 6 – Click Download.
Step 7 – Once the IPVanish app installs, click Open.
Step 8 – Enter your IPVanish account information and click Log In.
You will get your username and password when you register for an account.
Step 9 – Click Connect.
Step 10 – Click OK.
Step 11 – Success! Your identifying IP Address has changed and you are now anonymous.
Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.
Congratulations! You are now protected by IPVanish 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.
You can now setup IPVanish VPN on all of your other Internet-connected devices. You can use IPVanish on unlimited devices!
