What Channels Do You Get With FireStick (Free & Paid)?

The FireStick is an excellent streaming device. However, it doesn’t host any content. Instead, it relies on apps and channels that let you stream your favorite content.

With hundreds of apps and channels supported on the device, choosing the best to suit your streaming needs can be daunting. What channels do you get with FireStick? I have compiled a list of the best FireStick channels to watch movies, TV shows, sports, kids’ content, news, and more.

Some are official apps that you can download from the Amazon App Store. You’ll also find third-party channels that you can sideload from external sources. However, you’d need to jailbreak the FireStick to sideload these unofficial apps.

Best Free FireStick Channels (Third-Party)
1. Cinema HD APK

Cinema HD APK, popularly known as Cinema HD, is a streaming app for movies and TV shows. Most third-party apps come and go, but Cinema HD is one of the longest-running and stable channels for FireStick.

The app is free and doesn’t require an account to access content. It scrapes content from the internet to provide quality streaming links. Depending on your internet speed, you can stream content in various resolutions. You can also integrate third-party services like Trakt and Real Debrid to optimize your streaming experience.


2. CyberFlix TV

CyberFlix TV is another unofficial channel that lets you stream free movies and TV shows. It is lightweight, which is an admirable feature of a FireStick app. It features a vast library of TV shows and movies across all genres, from comedy, drama, and crime to action.

Like Cinema HD, CyberFlix TV scrapes the internet for streaming links and then avails them at your convenience. You can set it up with Real Debrid to fetch premium links that are high-quality and buffer-free. It also supports Trakt integration to help you manage your watch history.

3. BeeTV APK

BeeTV is another excellent source of unlimited entertainment. The channel streams various movies and shows, including the newest releases.

The app works great on FireStick. It has a user-friendly and remote-compatible interface. BeeTV also pulls top-notch streams from quality servers.

You can also team it with Real Debrid and Trakt. Overall, it is a wonderful on-demand channel for FireStick users.


4. TV Mob

We’ve discussed unofficial apps for streaming free on-demand content so far. Let me introduce you to TV Mob if you’re looking for ways to stream live TV on FireStick.

It’s an upgrade of the renowned TV Tap app, which offers hundreds of free cable television channels from the US, UK, Netherlands, France, Germany, and more countries. The app is free to use, and the content is available without registration.
