Mobdro is one of the best and most popular Android streaming applications. The app has been around for several years now, and it is still growing in popularity. This is especially due to its reliability when it comes to watching live TV and sports.
Having Mobdro on your Chromecast can expand your streaming options by letting you watch hundreds of channels from across the world for free. In this guide, we’ll show you how to install Mobdro on Chromecast to enjoy free IPTV.
⚠ Stream carefully: Use a VPN
The developers of Mobdro usually distance themselves from the legality of the streams that you can get through the app. This is because Mobdro just scrapes for links from the internet, with little care of where these streams are hosted.
Remember that when it comes to premium broadcasting, there is a lot of work that is being put in by broadcasters, copyright holders, ISPs, and governments to curb piracy. It means that if you want to use Mobdro, you need to hide it from your ISP as well as change your IP address for anonymity. This can be done using a VPN, but you also need to choose your VPN well.

How to Install Mobdro on Chromecast with Android TV
Since Mobdro is not available the Android TV store, we’ll need to sideload it on Chromecast. The process is not complicated, but it requires several steps.
Step 1: Install Downloader app
To sideload Mobdro on Chromecast, you first need to install an app that will facilitate the download as well as the installation. There are several file managers that you can use to do this, but the best and easiest to use is the Downloader app.
The app is readily available on the Play Store, and so you only need to do a few things to install it.
- While at the device main menu, click Search.
- Click the search box and type in “downloader app.” You can then click the search icon.
- Downloader app should open on the store. Click Install
Once it’s installed, do not open it yet.
Step 2: Unlock developer mode
Before you can install Mobdro or any other apk on Chromecast, you first need to activate developer permissions. To do this:
- Hold down the home button and select “Settings” from the menu on the top right.
- Scroll down and open “System”
- Select “About”
- Now, scroll down to the bottom and you’ll see the option “Android TV OS build.” Press several times until you get the message that says, “You are now a developer!” at the bottom of the screen.
Step 3: Enable ‘Unknown Sources’
Now, go back to the main settings page. From there:
- Select “Apps”
- Scroll down to “Security & Restrictions”
- Select Unknown sources.
On that page, you will find the Downloader app we installed as a potential source. After reading the warning, flip the toggle to blue to enable its ability to install third-party apps.
Now, you can launch downloader.
Step 4: Download the apk file using Downloader
Now, everything is set for you to download apks using direct links.
To download the Mobdro apk file, open downloader and follow the instructions below:
- In the URL field of the downloader, enter the URL: https://www.mobdro.bz/mobdro.apk
- The Mobdro apk will start downloading.
After the download is complete, just click “Install” and then “Done.” After that, downloader will give you the option to delete apk and save space.
You can now go to your apps section and you will find the Mobdro app.
Disable Mobdro Ads
If you so wish, you can disable Mobdro adverts to enjoy a smoother streaming experience. Once you launch the app, it will give you the option to do so. If not, you can still do that by going to settings then selecting “disable ads.”
The trade-off for disabling ads is that you’ll allow the app to use your idle resources. This means that when your Chromecast is idle, Mobdro will provide access for your device to be used as a proxy by another user. This is made possible through Mobdro’s affiliation with Luminati, a company that offers proxy services. If you are not comfortable allowing access, you can re-enable ads after your session.
If you have the new Chromecast with Google TV, then you can enhance your streaming experience by installing Mobdro. The app will allow you to watch any major television network from across the world live and free. However, you also need to be careful to avoid landing in trouble over piracy.
