If you have a FireStick, then you have the holy grail of entertainment and TV. Along with getting the TV from Amazon and their various partners, you can also connect your TV to other services with the FireStick. You’ll have instant access to the entertainment libraries of Hulu, Youtube, Netflix, and of course CineHub on your Television.
Just plug in the FireStick, connect it to your Wi-Fi, and start browsing the endless entertainment options. Those are well and good if you just want to use Amazon’s bundles, but how do you install CineHub on your FireStick? First, let’s take a deeper look at both of these products.

What Is A FireStick?
The FireStick from Amazon allows you to have a portable television right in the palm of your hand. The FireStick allows you to house all your content and it can be taken and then plugged into any television, so you will have instant access to all of your apps and content. From Hulu, to Netflix, to your favorite apps and games… it will all be there.
You will be able to have access to your Amazon account (and Prime Account if you have one), and you can open and select various apps. Instead of paying for a package that might have some things you don’t want, you can have everything you do want for a small fee. These options include things such as HBO Now, ESPN, and Hulu.
You can also connect the device to Amazon’s Alexa, allowing you to search your favorite shows by voice command as well, making sifting through the content much easier. It’s the newest way to watch TV, and a great way to take your TV with you!
What Is CineHub?
CineHub is a service that brings the movies of the theater all the way to your device. You can browse on your android devices with a well-thought-out UI system, allowing you to get everything you need in a snap. Then all the latest movies and shows will be yours to watch and browse. It also contains support for various subtitles, fast loading, technical support and updates, and several local and international options.
Additionally, everything is available in HD, so you really are getting that cinema quality and will be able to watch content both online and offline. Finally, the application is free, and you will be able to access all the available content and features without paying for a monthly subscription. There’s not even a signup feature, so that’s one less password that you need to remember!
How To Get CineHub Off Your Phone?
Sadly CineHub is an android application only, and you won’t be able to use it on IoS devices or on personal computers without workarounds from third parties. But if you’ve ever tried to watch a movie on your phone you will know that it can be very underwhelming. It can also be uncomfortable as well, especially if you are watching with other people.
FireStick allows you to access the app on your television and watch your content on there, and it was made to work with FireStick. The installation process only requires that you have an Amazon FireStick and an Android device with the CineHub application downloaded.
Step 1: Connect the FireStick To Your TV
Take your FireStick and plug it into the television through the HDMI port on the back of the television. Then you just need to connect it to your Wi-Fi network, log into your Amazon account, and then you are all set. You will have complete access to all the benefits of the FireStick, and it will be controlled by the included remote control.
Step 2: Download CineHub
CineHub hasn’t been placed on the GooglePlay store yet, so you will need to go to its website and download the application from there on your phone. Once the application has been downloaded, you will need to go to the settings app on your phone and turn on ‘Unknown Sources’ on your phone under Developer Options.
Then you should go to the downloads folder and open the CineHub file. Install it and follow the directions when prompted. After that is done, you can open the application and access CineHub.
If you want to download the application, then follow the same directions on your television to allow for third-party downloads, install the downloader application, and then download the CineHub File from the website’s URL.
Step 3: Connect CineHub To Your FireStick
After the downloading is over, then navigate to the “Apps and Channels’ application and open the CineHub application. Then you can access it just like any other app.
Why Would I Want To Use A FireStick?
A FireStick is a fantastic way to get all of your content into one place, instead of having to scroll through the different apps to see what you want. Plus, there’s no Chromecast or casting times while the content you want to watch is being loaded from your phone to your screen. Instead, everything else is already on your television and is instantly accessed with the push of a button.
FireSticks also allow you to take your television with you. Instead of needing to fiddle with casting services if you are watching an unfamiliar television, you just plug the stick into any HDMI port and you have instant access to your favorite shows. Plus, you can access all your accounts at the push of a button from your Amazon account. There’s no more worrying about remembering ten different passwords for your ten different streaming accounts anymore. That is certainly a relief for everyone!
Do I Need A VPN To Use CineHub?
If you want to protect yourself from being spied on by Internet Service Providers, access content that would otherwise be blocked by regional restrictions, or change your IP address, then a VPN is necessary. While you don’t need a VPN to use CineHub safely and to access its content, it is always a nice option to have. Plus, trusted and safe VPNs allow you to have control over your internet privacy.
VPNs also help with your speed as well, giving you a fast internet download speed whenever you decide to stream or download your content. So no more throttling of bandwidths or having everything slow down just because you are watching a movie. VPNs can work with both CineHub and FireStick, so if you want one, it will work for you.
Should I Get A FireStick Or A Fire TV?
Of course, if you look at anything involving a FireStick, then comparisons to the Amazon Fire TV are not that far behind. The Fire TV came first and comes with 4K ultra HD, an Alexa Voice Remote, and a large library of content. Rather than being an actual TV, instead it is a small box that sits on your TV, and plugs in with an HDMI cable.
It sits behind your television, you will not need to worry about any unsightly wires or the large box itself getting in the way while you watch your newest binging obsession.
You do need to plug the power adapter into a wall outlet, and then you can use it with the remote or with your voice using Alexa. The main con of the Fire TV option is that it is not the most affordable option if you happen to be on a budget.
The FireStick is cheap, portable, and shaped more like a traditional USB drive and less like a cube. If you are the type of person who wants to go and move around while carrying your shows with you, then this is the best thing to do.
Both devices are almost the same and give you the best TV and streaming options, so it’s really a question of portability and budget. Are you the type of person who spends a bit more and wants to watch the majority of your TV at home? Or do you want to be able to take all your TV options with you while you travel?
Otherwise, it’s just a matter of personal choice, and you really aren’t going to have to worry about missing out on any features when you pick one over the other. Each fire device will get you the entertainment that you want to see, as well as connectivity with other applications and with Alexa devices.
