How to Install Strix APK on FireStick Under 2 Minutes [2021 ]

In this article, I will show you how to install Strix on FireStick. The same method is applicable to all FireStick products, including, FireStick 2nd/3rd gen, Fire TV Stick Lite, and even Fire TV Cube. Before getting into the process, let’s see what Strix is all about.

What is Strix?

If you are a movie buff or a TV show enthusiast, Strix is all you need. Developed by Inside4ndroid, Strix is an Android app that gives users access to a big catalog of movies, shows, and live channels from around the world, absolutely free. 

You can watch video content in 360p, 720p, or 1080p. The Strix app supports Android, Windows, Mac, Raspberry Pi, Linux, and more. 

It is worth mentioning that it has adult content but offers a parental lock that prevents kids from viewing such content.

We can install Strix in two ways: sideloading it using the Downloader app or directly downloading it from the Amazon app store.

Attention, FireStick Users!

Governments and ISPs constantly monitor your online activity, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick could lead to serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend getting the best FireStick VPN to mask your IP address and securely stream your favorites.

I personally use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN available. Not only is it easy to install on any device, it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, if you’re not 100% satisfied, you can always get a refund. ExpressVPN is currently also offering a whopping 3 extra months free on their annual plan!

Here are reasons why using a VPN at all times is essential.

I am now going to take you through the steps to install the Strix APK on FireStick using the Downloader app. In Method 2, I have provided the steps to install the app via the Amazon Store. However, since Strix is a third-party app, it is likely to get removed from the store in the future. Hence, you will need to rely on this Downloader method.

Part 1: Preparing FireStick to Install Strix

2. Click Search.


3. Search for Downloader and select it from the suggestion list.


4. Click Downloader.
