Cyberflix Firestick Download Guide 2022: Easy Step-By-Step Instructions With Screenshots!

The Amazon Store provides awesome streaming apps, but they often come with expensive renewals. CyberFlix TV is an excellent alternative here – it gives users access to many movies and TV shows in HD for free and without ads, making it popular among cord-cutters. 

But as you would expect, CyberFlix can only be installed on a jailbroken Firestick through sideloading. This Cyberflix TV download guide will show you how to install the app using both Downloader and File Explorer. We’ll also show you how to stream content while keeping your online privacy safe and protected using the best VPN – ExpressVPN.

CyberFlix Firestick Installation Using Downloader

CyberFlix TV download is possible using several means, but the easiest way is using the Downloader app.

Step 1: Install Downloader

Downloader is a download manager that allows users to both download and install other apps. It is available on the Amazon Store, and you can follow the procedure below to start using it.

  1. Go to the Firestick main screen and hover over Find. Click Search.Firestick home page with prominent Find and Search buttons
  2. Firestick will now give you a search window. Start typing Downloader and then click the suggestion you’ll get to search for the app.Amazon Firestick search function with Downloader highlighted
  3. Downloader should be available on the results page. Click on it.
  4. Downloader app highlighted in the search results on FirestickYou should now see an option to download the app. Click Download, and the installation process will start.

Before we can start using Downloader to install CyberFlix, there are a few things we need to do first. Note that these procedures only need to be done once (on the first use only).

Step 2: Prep your Firestick

Like any other device, Firestick requires you to adjust a few settings before installing apps that are not available in the official store. You can do that in a few steps.

Allow “Apps from Unknown Sources”

To allow third-party apps, the permission you need to give is labeled “apps from unknown sources.”

  1. While at the Firestick main page, go to Settings and click My Fire TV.Amazon Firestick Settings menu with My Fire TV highlighted
  2. Select Developer options.Developer options highlighted in the My Fire TV menu, find Developer options.
  3. If you are using Firestick Gen 2, Firestick 4K, or Fire TV Cube, simply click Apps from Unknown Sources, and the state will change from Off to On.Apps from Unknown Sources categorized under Developer Options in My Fire TV settings

As for Firestick Lite and Firestick Gen 3, clicking the option will give you a list of apps. Choose Downloader from the list and click OK on the remote to turn the state to On.

You have now configured Firestick to install third-party apps through Downloader. But before you install the app, we advise that you first disable data-sharing to prevent Big Brother from spying on you.

Turn Off Amazon Data Collection Settings

By default, Amazon collects data on the apps you use and how you use them. If this sounds invasive to you (and it should), you can disable data-sharing and enhance your privacy.

To do so:

  1. While at the home screen, go to Settings and select Preferences.Amazon Firestick Settings menu with Preferences highlighted
  2. Click on Privacy SettingsThe Amazon Firestick Preferences menu with Privacy Settings highlighted
  3. Now, click “Device Usage Data” and “Collect App Usage Data” to turn them off.Privacy Settings menu, showing Device Usage Data and Collect App Usage Data

Step 3: Download the CyberFlix APK File and Install the App

Now that everything is set, we can go ahead and install CyberFlix TV.

  1. Go to Apps & Channels and open Downloader. If you are opening the app for the first time, grant it storage permission by clicking Allow. Allow button highlighted in the permission dialog to give the Downloader app access to photos, media and files on Firestick
  2. Downloader’s main page contains a URL textbox where you can type a download file. Now type the CyberFlix apk URL – vpnch.ec/k/cyberflix – then click Go.Adding the CyberFlix apk URL on Downloader

File Explorer is a utility app that provides lots of functionalities, and one of these is sideloading apps. The CyberFlix TV download process is quite similar to using Downloader.

Step 1: Install File Explorer

This app is available on the Amazon Store, so you can install it within a few minutes using the procedure we used for Downloader. Go to Find > Search > File Explorer > Install.

Step 2: Enable Unknown Sources & Disable Data-Sharing

To enable unknown sources and disable data-sharing, use the procedure we provided above in “Step 2: Prep Your Firestick.” 

Step 3: Download the CyberFlix APK File and Install CyberFlix TV

Now, open File Explorer and give the app permission to access your file storage system. From there:

  1. Go to the side menu and scroll down to Tools. Click it to get more options, then select Download Manager.Download Manager on File Explorer

You have now installed CyberFlix TV. File Explorer won’t give you the option to delete the Cyberflix apk file, but you can do so by going to the Downloads section using the app.

Install MX Player

CyberFlix TV comes with an inbuilt player, but the best player to use with the app is MX Player. The player will give you more configuration options and help reduce buffering for a smooth streaming experience.

CyberFlix allows you to select MX Player when you first start the app, but if you haven’t installed it, you will get an error when you start playing a video.

Here’s how to install MX Player on Firestick.

  1. Open Downloader by going to Apps & Channels. On the main screen, you will see a URL text box where you can type the path for the file you want to download. To download MX Player, type in the URL vpnch.ec/k/mx-player and click Go.Adding MX Player URL on Downloader
  2. The MX Player APK file should start downloading.Dialog box showing the file download progress of MX Player on Firestick

CyberFlix will now start looking for streaming links, and you can select the one you like. For the best streaming experience, you can consider 1080p sources that are small in size (less than 5 GB). Alternatively, if you’d like a bigger file size, but your network is not strong enough, you can use the CyberFlix TV download feature.CyberFlix TV available links for the movie Free Guy

However, you will need to ensure that you are streaming anonymously.

How To Use ExpressVPN for Private IPTV Streaming?

The team behind CyberFlix states that “the app crawls for links from numerous sites. We have no control over the content, nor do we own any of the content.”

This means that the links provided by CyberFlix are not vetted, and some of them may even provide access to pirated content. Such content can easily land you in trouble as ISPs and governments monitor the content people access. Further, copyright trolls usually track illegal files to see users who are accessing them. They then send DMCA notices to ISPs, who then forward them to users.

A VPN helps prevent any of these by encrypting your activities such that your ISP and government can’t tell what you are doing online. It also changes your IP address to ensure nobody can trace your activities back to you.

That said, you will need to choose your VPN carefully as most of them are not suitable for streaming. The VPN we recommend for Firestick is ExpressVPN, as it provides excellent speeds, great features, and top-notch privacy and security levels. It also comes with an awesome app for Firestick, so it’s easy to get started.

To start using the VPN, you will first need to create an account. This will only take you a few minutes. 

  1. Visit the ExpressVPN website and click Get ExpressVPN.Sign up for ExpressVPN

  3. From there, scroll down and provide your email address, then select a payment method.ExpressVPN Payment Options
  4. You can then complete the payment and create a password for your account.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is CyberFlix better than Cinema HD and Spectrum APK?

CyberFlix is more like the Cinema HD Firestick app than Spectrum TV. The latter offers live TV, but the former two offer movies and TV shows. CyberFlix and Cinema HD are similar in their interface, functionality, and what they offer, and none is significantly better than the other. When it comes to free streaming apps, the more you have, the better. You can always switch between them whenever you feel that one is not giving you the optimum streaming experience.

Is CyberFlix Legal and Safe to Use?

The CyberFlix Firestick app lies in a legal grey area. The app itself does not host the content it provides, and it simply scrapes for links from publicly available websites. However, some of these links may not be legal. As a rule of thumb, only use free streaming apps when you are connected to a reliable streaming VPN such as ExpressVPN. This will protect you from any legal liabilities by ensuring that you remain private and anonymous.

What can I watch on CyberFlix?

CyberFlix majors on movies and TV shows, and you can find anything from 1920’s classics to the latest episodes. The app allows you to filter the titles according to various categories and years, and you can also use the search option to access hidden gems easily.

What to do if CyberFlix isn’t working?

If CyberFlix isn’t working for you, you can try updating the app as you may be using an outdated version. Other than that, clear your memory cache, uninstall and re-install the app, or restart your Firestick. In case the app has been shut down, you can use alternatives such as the Cinema HD Firestick app.
