While the content collection of this app is big, it does not support Real Debrid or Trakt integration.

Therefore, I recommend using other FireStick Apps that offer better quality streaming experience.

Nevertheless, you can give this app a try. It is free.

Is CloudStream Safe & Legal?

We scanned the CloudStream APK via a couple of antivirus tools and found nothing dangerous or harmful.

You may also run the APK through any antivirus software of your choice for complete peace of mind.

It is not possible for us to determine whether or not CloudStream has the proper licenses for the content it provides.

I would recommend sticking to the Public Domain content while using third-party apps.
