FreeFlix HQ Installation Guide For Your Fire TV or Stick
It’s important that you follow these instructions carefully as you install FreeFlix HQ on your Fire TV or FireStick. Keep in mind that third-party apps need to be installed a certain way. And FreeFlix HQ is no different.
Overall, the installation process takes anywhere from five to ten minutes. Let’s dive right into the installation itself.
Enable FireStick for Third-Party Apps
One of the things you need to do first and foremost is enable your FireStick to accept third-party apps. By default, the ability to install such apps is disabled. With that said, the first thing you need to do is go to the Fire TV Stick home screen and select the ‘Settings’ option.
Once in the ‘Settings’ menu, choose the ‘Device’ option. From there, choose the ‘Developer Options’. Next, find the option that says ‘Apps from Unknown Sources’ and select ‘Off’.
You’ll receive a prompt that warns you about downloading third-party apps. Select the ‘turn on’ option. Rest assured, while FreeFlix HQ is a third-party app, it’s safe to download. For future reference, be sure to do research on third-party apps before you install them on a FireStick.
Install FreeFlix HQ Using Downloader
Now that you have enabled third-party apps on your FireStick, it’s time to install the FreeFlix HQ app. Follow the instructions carefully:
Step 1: Download the Downloader App
If you don’t have the Downloader App, be sure to download this from the app store. If you are unable to find it, you’ll need to change the region, which can be done in your Amazon account. Once downloaded, you’ll want to access the Downloader app.
Step 3: Enter The URL For FreeFlix HQ
Now, select the ‘Home’ option on the sidebar. From there, select the URL field. Next, type in the following URL: https://www.firesticktricks.com/ffhq
After entering it in the URL field, press Go or Play. This will allow the FreeFlix HQ APK to be downloaded. Once the download is finished, the Downloader App will install the APK package. Click ‘Next’ once you see the prompt. Next, you’ll see the ‘Install’ option. Select that.
Step 4: Delete the APK Package
You’ll receive a notification that says ‘App Installed’. You can launch the app by selecting ‘Open’ or select ‘Done’. However, we need to delete the APK file since we no longer need it. Keeping it on there will take up unnecessary space. Find the APK file and select ‘Delete’. Once deleted, you can return to the ‘Apps & Channels’ section of the FireStick.
At this point, the installation process is complete.
Installing FreeFlix HQ on FireStick or FireTV With ES File Explorer
Other than Downloader, FreeFlix HQ can be installed on a FireStick or FireTV using the ES File Explorer App. The app will use a sideloader, which will allow you to install third-party apps. Here are the steps that you need to follow:
Step 1: Search for the app
To begin, go to the FireStick/FiveTV home screen and search for the ES File Explorer app. It should appear in the search results.
Step 2: Download
Download the ES File Explorer app. Once it’s downloaded, it will automatically install. Wait for the process to finish.
Step 3: Click on Downloader icon
At this point, there should be a menu with all kinds of apps on the ES File Explorer App. Select the ‘Downloader’ that is located on the main page. From there, you can click on the +New icon below it.
Step 4: Enter Path and Name and Download
From here, you’ll need to enter the following URL in the Path Field: https://bit.ly/3bM9qte
Next, you can label it as FreeFlix HQ in the name field. Select ‘Download Now.’ The file will soon download.
Step 5: Install and Open
Once it’s downloaded, install the FreeFlix HQ app and it will start the installation process. Wait for it to finish. Afterwards, open up the FreeFlix HQ app and you’ll be good to go.
Using The FreeFlix HQ on FireStick
Note before use: Please be aware that when using the FreeFlix HQ app, you may be tracked. Some of the app’s users have received legal notices regarding the use of FreeFlix HQ. For this reason, it is important that you use a VPN.
A VPN will encrypt your online activities. Please note that we do not condone copyright infringement or violation of said laws. However, privacy should be something you want to consider when using third-party apps.
Download a VPN
As mentioned in our note above, using a VPN will be important. Especially when you hold privacy to a high standard. Some of these third-party apps may trace or track you each time you use them. For this reason, you’ll want to download a VPN that will encrypt your traffic.
There are plenty of VPNs that exist. However, one of the more reliable VPNs that many FireStick users have relied on is ExpressVPN. This can be downloaded on FireStick directly from the app store. ExpressVPN can only work if you have a subscription.
Once downloaded on your FireStick, you can log in with your ExpressVPN details. After you log in, you can enable the VPN by clicking on the power button. Once you turn it on, you can back out and then access the FreeFlix HQ app.
Accessing The FreeFlix HQ App
With your VPN enabled, you can now open up the FreeFlix HQ app and use it freely. You can select everything from TV shows, anime, Live TV, movies, and so much more. On the main menu, you can select some of the most popular shows.
You can also select the filter option, located on the top right-hand corner of the screen. Once selected, you can choose the server (using the pull-down menu). You can also filter TV shows based on various pull-down menus. You can filter them by genre, years, and sort by various categories such as the shows that you watch the most, latest additions, and more.
There are various servers you can choose from depending on what you want to watch. For example, you can select servers that host movies. There are also servers that host TV shows that you can watch as well. Keep in mind that there are multiple servers to select from. So if one server isn’t working, choose another.
To give you a quick guide on which servers are which, movies are found on Servers 1 through 5, while Servers 6 through 10 will have TV shows. You can also check the server status. If the server status bar is filled fully in red, you’ll get better streaming options (but the less red they are, the less likely you’ll get good streaming quality).
Is it possible to watch FreeFlix HQ without ads?
The short answer: yes.
The long answer, you can definitely enjoy watching FreeFlix HQ without the ads. However, it does come with a price.
By default, the app is ad-supported because it needs to keep up with their expenses including overhead. However, if you want to watch tv and movies ad-free, it will cost you $10. You can send it to them via PayPal.
You can access this option by using the Hamburger Menu on the top left-hand corner of the app’s home screen. From there, you can select the ‘Settings’ option and select the ‘Remove Ads (PayPal)’ option. You make a $10 donation and it should be enough to remove the ads for a better viewing experience.
Can you watch FreeFlix HQ on an External Media Player?
You can watch FreeFlix HQ on an external media player. In fact, the app is supported by almost every media player available. What you need to do is enable this via the settings app. Access it by clicking on the Hamburger Menu and select ‘Settings’. From there, you can select the ‘Use External Video Player’ option.
It will show you a list of media players that are installed on your FireStick or FireTV.
