I still remember the time when I was searching for the free app that let me stream live TV channels along with some movies and TV shows. I searched a lot but didn’t find any app that provides both facilities of live TV and on-demand video but then one of my friends who also own a firestick introduced me to the Mobdro app.
When I downloaded the Mobdro app on my firestick for the first time I couldn’t believe Mobdro lets you stream your favorite TV shows and movies along with free live TV channels from countries like the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, etc.
I am using Mobdro on firestick for the last three months and believe me guys this app is so amazing that I recommend every cord-cutter to install it on their firestick device. You can watch thousands of free live TV channels from all over the world and the streaming quality is also top-notch.
You can download and install Mobdro on firestick, fire tv, and fire TV cube.
What is Mobdro?
Mobdro is a free live tv channels application that is available for both Android and firestick platforms. This application is mostly used by users on their Android devices but you can also install Mobdro on firestick and enjoy watching your favorite channels on a bigger screen.
The best thing about Mobdro for firestick is that it is a completely TV-friendly app, which means you don’t have to use the mouse or anything like that to navigate through this app. Mobdro is well optimized for firestick devices and all its features are easily accessible by fire tv remote.
