In this walkthrough, I will show you how to install & Use TVZion on FireStick. It works for not only Firestick but also the Fire TV Cube, Firestick 4k, and Amazon Fire TV Edition Smart TVs.
There is no shortage of third-party streaming apps after the fall of Terrarium TV. But, now that developers are being forced to shut down the development of these apps due to copyright issues, good video streaming apps are slowly disappearing from the scene.
However, TVZion is still running strong even after its launch back in 2018. It offers a wide range of content, including movies, TV shows, and anime. The default scrapers work exceptionally well and often pulls 1080p links. It also uses external services, such as Real-Debrid, Premiumize, and All Debrid for scraping up to 4K resolution and high-bitrate content. It does support cached torrent streaming, which lets users streaming media files directly off torrents. However, it requires users to link their Real-Debrid or Premiumize account with TVZion.
It has support for embedded subtitles, which users can download directly from the playback menu. The autoplay feature loads the next episode in the highest quality possible to provide a seamless binge-watching experience. In case a user wants to do it manually, TVZion gives users the option to sort and filter streamable sources by resolution, bitrate, and file size.
The features extend to further territory. TVZion has Trakt integration, which lets users import their watch history and personal favorites from other services. On top of that, users can choose external media players to stream content.
TVZion is built for Android TV devices from the ground up, and it is fully compatible with Fire TV devices as well. The simple user interface scales well on big-screen televisions. The support for remote input makes it even better.
At this point, you probably want to give TVZion a try. If you have a Firestick, you can follow this guide to install the TVZion apk on firestick and learn how to use it.

Important Note: The developer of TVZion once explicitly expressed his thoughts about implementing countermeasures to punish users who have installed a modded version of TVZion [Source]. It included crypto mining and collecting personal IP addresses without consent. Though the developer later released an apology statement to the userbase, we strongly recommend our readers to proceed at their own risk and discretion.
