This guide illustrates how to install Popcorn Time streaming app on Firestick and Fire TV.  The app can also be installed on Android TV, Android TV Box, Android Smartphones, and Nvidia Shield. 

Popcorn Time is one of the most popular streaming applications today, and it is featured in our list of the best streaming apps of 2020. The app is however different from most apps we review like Cinema HD and Kodi. This is because instead of crawling the web for streaming links, Popcorn Time uses an in-built BitTorrent client to stream torrent files from multiple sources using an inbuilt player.

The best thing is about the app is that it downloads a portion of the file you’d like to stream before it starts streaming. This makes it possible to stream content smoothly even with a slow connection. However, it also means that you need sufficient space since the downloaded bits are stored in your device. They are then erased after you stop watching the video. You can also choose to download a video and then watch offline.

Popcorn Time has a huge database that includes even the most recent movies and episodes. Available content can be streamed with up to 1080p. Popcorn time is a streaming app with a huge database and smooth playing available to install on Firestick

Important: Stay Private & Secure

Since Popcorn Time uses torrent technology, you need to be careful while streaming on the app. This is because the governments and ISPs all over the world are running a crackdown to combat copyright infringement done through torrenting. This has led to the blocking of torrent sites in various countries such as the UK, as well as legal charges on people who share copyrighted content. Further, torrenting exposes a user’s IP address to other users which puts them at risk.

For this and other reasons, we strongly recommend that you get yourself a good VPN for Firestick. This VPN will help by encrypting your traffic to make it senseless to your ISP, and it will also change your IP address to make you anonymous.

The VPN we recommend

For streaming we recommend IPVanish, and it’s the VPN we use. IPVanish offers solid privacy and security, and it features some of the best speeds in the market. This is important as it ensures that you can stream on Popcorn Time, Kodi, and other apps without buffering.
