Terrarium TV is a great stand-alone app and one of the best Kodi alternatives. In fact, it's so good we might even be able to live with the ads that play on the bottom of the screen and at the end of streams.
The big KODI Crackdown of 2017 took with it some of the best add-ons for movie and TV shows. This led to many people seeking out alternatives to KODI, and a standalone app Terrarium TV was in a good position to capitalize. It has since become a must have app on any Fire Stick or Fire TV device.
What does Terrarium TV do?
Terrarium TV allows you to stream movies and TV shows for free. While it is an ad supported app, it seems as though the developers reinvest in the product. Video quality is generally high, and the links are pretty solid. We also like the high quality graphic interface.
Before proceeding, we highly recommend streaming via a Virtual Private Network (VPN). By connecting through a VPN, all of your internet traffic will be encrypted and hidden from your internet service provider.
Our favorite, most reliable VPN service for streaming media on Fire Stick and Fire TV is IPVanish. For more information about protecting yourself with VPN as well as an instructional video on how to install IPVanish on your Fire TV please see our article here.

While Genesis reborn offers many free pre-recorded options, it does not offer a way to watch live TV. While I do love some of the free TV streaming apps like Mobdro and Live NetTV, the app I keep coming back to without fail is SET TV. It comes standard with all paid stations, including league passes for all NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL etc., plus free Pay-Per-Views.
The best part? Its just $20 a month.
To get your free trial of SET TV as well as instructions on how to install it on your Fire Stick or Fire TV see our article here.
