In this article, I show you the Best Terrarium TV Alternatives for your Amazon Fire TV / Firestick. Why? Because Terrarium TV was shut down by its creator on September 11th, 2018. Or you can install the Terrarium TV Patch, which should work for awhile (but not forever!).
How Do I Install the Best Terrarium TV Alternatives?
There are several ways to install the best alternatives for Terrarium TV. Here are the easiest ways (covered in detail if you scroll down):
- Simply install the Terrarium TV PATCH, which bypasses the “killswitch” added to TTV by the app’s creator.
- Use DroidAdmin (now called “FileLinked”) to install Terrarium TV alternative APKs
- Or use third-party app stores (like Aptoide TV or APKTime) to install APKs on your Firestick
- Finally, you can also use the Downloader app to directly download APKs to your Firestick
Tip: The links in the list above take you directly to the part of this tutorial to show you how to install each Terrarium TV substitute.

5. TeaTV (WORKS for some)
UPDATE: The TeaTV app seems to be unable to connect to SOME sources. So I recommend that you use an app higher up in this list instead of Tea TV for now.
The TeaTV app (aka Tea Movie Guide) is one of the streaming community’s favorite movie apps for Firestick. It has categories of movies from which you can choose at any time. I highly recommend Tea TV as one of the best alternatives to Terrarium TV on Amazon Fire Stick. It’s one of my favorites!

6. Bobby Movie (Update: Currently not working!)
Update: The BobbyMovie app seems to be unable to connect to sources right now. So try an app higher up in this list for now, instead of using Bobby Movie.
Next up is the Bobby Movie APK. Bobby Movie is yet another great alternative to terrarium TV that lets us watch movies to our heart’s content. Just use Droidadmin (aka Filelinked) to quickly install Bobby Movie on Firestick and start streaming instantly.
