There is an option of TV calender which notifies you about the latest releasing episodes of many shows. Even you can download videos from the terrarium tv to watch later. But, you need to install MX Player on firestick to watch terrarium tv videos with subtitles.
Plex is one of the most downloaded firestick apps on the Amazon app store. Lot’s of arguments going on that, Plex is the best alternative to Kodi which provides free media streaming over the internet. Though my opinion is a bit different here, Plex is not developed to provide free streaming like Kodi and terrarium tv does but it works like a bridge between two or more devices.
If you downloaded any HD videos or movies on your Android tablet or Windows PC, you don’t need to copy that in a storage media to play on firestick. Plex will do this job, just connect your firestick with PC via Plex software and start watching any videos downloaded on any other devices.

The need for cable connection and the premium subscription to various tv channels apps has entirely vanished. Just install Mobdro for firestick and start watching everything for free.
6- ES File Explorer
A major disadvantage of firestick or Android TV box is, there is no default configuration to see the hidden files on internal or external storage. What, if we need to rename, delete, modify, copy or paste a particular or set of files to another folder? ES File Explorer is an award-winning file manager app for Android OS. Now, ES File Explorer can also be downloaded on firestick from the official app store.
The dashboard design is extremely simple and organized, there is a separate option to see all available photos, documents, apps, and other file types. The recent update of ES File Explorer has got an option to download the file from the internet. Means, you don’t need to install any download manager app if you having ES File Explorer.

The simple UI and ability to play all video format along with online subtitle feature have played a significant role in making MX Player trending. Many video apps require a default video player and we recommend you to install MX player for this.
