Firestick offers you to download thousands of streaming applications like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc you can download all these OTT apps directly from the Amazon app store in no time but all these apps are paid which means in order to use these apps you have to buy the subscription which will cost you a lot.

More apps to watch movies for free on Firestick
Now apart from CatMouse there are more apps that are working in today’s date and you can use them. There are so many such apps but I am only listing the ones that are working and trusted.
Cinema HD is one of those apps that I installed for the very first time on my firestick. Cinema HD is the only app that is working for a very long time. Even the developers of Cinema HD keep pushing the update after every 1 month and that’s why this app is still in the heart of people.

Another app that is quite similar to terrarium TV(used to be one of the best apps to watch movies and shows). If you are looking for a Terrarium TV alternative then Freeflix HQ is the app that I highly recommend you to try. This app is designed quite similar to terrarium TV and it even works like that.
It has a big library of the latest movies and TV series that you can watch for absolutely free. If you want to know how to get FreeFlix HQ on firestick then read our guide: How to install FreeFlix HQ on firestick.
I am giving TeaTV 3rd position on this list because nowadays TeaTV server is causing problems. Many TeaTV users were complaining that it is showing server errors.
However, when I tested it by myself the app was working pretty fine and now users are also saying that the app is in a good state now but I would say TeaTV is not a reliable option but you can give it a try.

Method 2) Watch TV Shows and Free Movies on Firestick via Web Browser
This is also a free method to watch free movies on firestick. Here in this method we gonna take the help of web browsers.

It is one of the most downloaded and famous OTT apps. Some of the most famous shows in the world are by Netflix and the best thing is the subscription price of Netflix is not really high. Even a student like me can afford Netflix monthly subscription. Netflix has a huge catalog of shows and TV series of almost all genres.

After installing Netflix app on firestick you can either log in by using an existing Netflix account or you can create a new account.

Another OTT app that is quite popular in the United States, owned by The Walt Disney Company.
