In this tutorial, I am going to describe the step-by-step method to install Showbox Apk on Firestick. It’s the most popular application for streaming movies and tv shows on Android devices. The same steps will also work on all Amazon Fire TV devices such as Fire TV (2nd and 3rd generation), Fire TV Stick 4K, and Fire TV Cube.

Showbox is known as the mother of all streaming applications. It was launched in February 2016 and it’s working till now. Lot’s of other applications are inspired by Showbox. But, most out of them were taken down due to piracy. I know, Showbox can fill the void left by Terrarium TV because it’s the best alternative to Terrarium TV for movie and tv shows streaming.
