Why Install Mobdro on an Amazon Fire Stick, Fire TV, or Fire TV Cube?
If you’re looking for a streaming service that replicates the experience of having live TV on your Amazon Fire Stick, Mobdro is a good choice.
Providing TV shows, movies, podcasts, live TV, and more in a channel-based format, you can find pretty much anything show or movie. The catch is that it is literally like watching TV. The content you select is playing already by the time you start streaming, like a live feed.
So, for example, if you select TV shows, then choose Doctor Who, you won’t be able to choose an episode. Instead, the show is already playing, and you watch whatever it is, waiting for the next episode to start.
This same behavior can be found in the live sport and news options, but that shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Whether you’re looking to dip into a random point of a long-running TV show, or simply want some live sports coverage, Mobdro is an app you should consider installing on the Amazon Fire TV Stick.
How to Install Mobdro on the Amazon Fire Stick Devices
Installing Mobdro onto an Amazon Fire TV device is straightforward. A three-step process is required:
- Enable the installation of apps from unknown sources
- Download the Mobdro APK via the Downloader app
- Install the APK file
These steps are explained in detail below.
Step One: Enable Unknown Sources
Using your Amazon Fire TV remote, browse to Settings (in the main menu) then scroll to and select My Fire TV.
Scroll to Developer Options, then select Apps from Unknown Sources.
Your Amazon Fire TV device will ask you confirm this action—select Turn On to proceed.
Another option is available in the same screen. However, ADB Debugging is for direct communication from a PC. You don’t need this to be enabled for installing apps.
Step Two: Download the Mobdro APK
To install Mobdro, you need to download the APK. To do this, you’ll need the Downloader app. This web browser tool will download a specified file to the Amazon Fire TV Stick. All you need is to specify the URL of the file.
Browse to Apps and find the Downloader app. Install the app, then launch it.
Step Three: Install Mobdro on the Amazon Firestick
To install Mobdro, use the remote to navigate the Downloader app, selecting the Home tab. Enter this URL:
The URL points to a Mobdro APK file on the archive.org website. Download this to your Fire Stick, then when prompted, select Install.
Wait for the installation process to complete, then hit Done.
At this point, you can launch Mobdro. However, it is smart to delete the file. In Downloader, select Files and highlight the mobdro.APK download. Press the Menu button on the remote and select Delete.
Keeping as much space as possible on the Amazon Fire TV Stick is smart—if you have any other APKs saved to the device, delete these too.
You might also take a moment to return to Settings > Developer Options > Apps from Unknown Sources and set it to Off. This will prevent rogue apps from being installed in the background if you are installing a compromised copy of Mobdro.

If the live nature of the TV show and movie libraries doesn’t seem appealing, a different app is recommended.
Don’t Use Mobdro Without a VPN
The Mobdro app might not be safe. Because it links to copyrighted material and feeds, Mobdro is frowned upon by most ISPs. In many territories, it has been banned.

Without an ISP blocking your activity, you’ll be able to access all the Mobdro based programming you like.
Ensure your VPN is active before launching the Mobdro app on your Fire Stick TV device.
