Cinema HD APK in March 2021 on Firestick/Android – Is It Safe & Legal?
This in-depth report on Cinema HD APK will provide you with important information that you need to know about this app on Firestick/Fire TV & Android TV Box.
Is Cinema APK safe to use? Is Cinema APK legal? How do I install Cinema APK? We will answer those questions and more in this article.
The reason why we ask legal questions is due to the fact that Cinema HD isn’t available in popular app stores such as Amazon App Store or Google Play. This is sometimes a warning sign.
Since this app can’t be installed through an app store, it must be sideloaded which we illustrate in the screenshot guide below.
Cinema HD APK is a popular Movie & TV Show streaming application that can be installed on just about every Android device.
Cinema features tons of working links and is constantly updated so you are never short on content.
It also has the ability to integrate a Real-Debrid account for users with this software.
With Terrarium TV no longer being supported, Cinema APK is a great option for those looking to continue their streaming experience. It has been selected as one of the Most Popular APK’s by NulledMedia.
Use the video tutorial and screenshot guide below to install Cinema APK on your preferred Streaming Device.
The video tutorial is recommended as it provides important details that the screenshot guide does not cover.
Note: If you are looking for the direct sources that Cinema and other apps populate streaming links from, I suggest viewing our Best Free Movie Websites and Best Streaming Sites for TV Shows guides.

Is Cinema HD Safe to Use?
Before I install this, I first want to 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 Cinema HD.
When we see flagged files in VirusTotal, a trusted VPN is pretty much required to protect your online identity and security.
Now, here are the steps that we went through to install through the official Cinema HD APK Website.

Cinema APK Details, Description, and More
Besides the ability to stream Movies and TV Shows, Cinema also offers the option to download content.
If you are using the software to download titles, I highly suggest using a VPN to protect your online identity from hackers, developers, and your ISP.
The new version of Cinema now allows for an external video player, subtitles, and does not crash on NVIDIA SHIELD or other Android Oreo devices.
The screen that displays the sources may not work well with the remote on the NVIDIA SHIELD and other Android TV devices.
You can install Mouse Toggle on Android TV to help with this problem.
Upon selecting your viewing choice, Cinema provides you with numerous sources. Oftentimes, these are in 720 and 1080p HD.
However, for reliable streams, a Real-Debrid account is always the best choice.
To setup Real-Debrid within Cinema, follow the steps below.

Remove Ads in Cinema with Bitcoin Payments
Ads within Cinema is a common complaint we receive on the site, and now there is a way to remove them.
A unique feature within Cinema is the ability to remove ads by donating to the developers through Bitcoin payment. Unfortunately, this is the only payment method the devs are accepting as of this writing.
If you are unfamiliar with Bitcoin and how to buy/use the cryptocurrency, I highly suggest viewing our detailed Bitcoin tutorial below.
Follow the quick guide below for how to remove ads in Cinema through Bitcoin payments.
1. Click the menu icon in the upper left of the screen
2. Scroll down and choose Member Activation
3. Select Pay with Bitcoin if you don’t already have a Member Code

Note: I recommend using an Anonymous Email Address when entering information on 3rd party apps like this
6. You are then prompted with a Bitcoin code (public key) and an amount based on your payment selection. I recommend writing down the code.
7. You will then need to enter this code (public key) using your Bitcoin wallet to complete the transaction.
As mentioned previously, I recommend viewing our Bitcoin Guide for how to buy & use cryptocurrency like Bitcoin.
Parse Error When Updating
Some of you may encounter a “Parse Error” when updating through the built-in updater in Cinema HD APK.
If this happens, simply follow the installation instructions again above through Downloader and this will perform an update for Cinema APK if it is already installed on your streaming device.
Is Cinema HD APK Legal?
It’s impossible for NulledMedia to determine whether these unverified applications hold the proper licensing.
If and when an application is deemed illegal, we notify our users immediately and update reports on our Website to reflect that information.
At first glance, it would appear that Cinema HD is distributing copyrighted works without consent.
You will notice in the example above that we used the free public domain movie, Night of the Living Dead as an example.
Works in the Public Domain are not protected by copyright laws and may be downloaded, streamed, and shared without any legal ramifications.
In conclusion, the end-user is responsible for all content accessed through apps such as Cinema HD.
Warning! Protect Yourself With A VPN
Most 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 identifying IP Address is 2603:6010:d202:85c8:f1b1:8aef:f55:53fd
When you use IPVanish 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 NulledMedia visitors like you.
Register for IPVanish Account & Save 62% (EXPIRES SOON)
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.
