Cinema HD APK

If you’ve ever searched for apps for free Movies & TV Shows, chances are you’ve heard of Cinema HD. It’s a streaming app that’s been around a very long time and I get a lot of questions asking me if it’s still any good in 2021.

What is Cinema HD

Cinema HD doesn’t really need any introduction as it’s possibly the most popular app for free Movies & TV Shows at the moment. But for those new to streaming, Cine HD is an app which allows you to watch pretty much any movie or tv show completely free, including all the latest releases. All you need to do is look at the recommended content on the home screen or search for the movie you want to watch, then it will scrape numerous different links which you can play.

IMPORTANT: When using 3rd party unofficial apps it’s recommended to use a vpn. This is a way to keep you data hidden and also stops you internet service provider seeing what you’re watching.

Is Cinema HD Still The Best

Each opinion will be different as to which app is the best when it comes to streaming. I personally still love to use Kodi with just a couple of addons for my movies & tv shows. But when running alongside other free streaming apps, Cinema HD is certainly up there with the best.

Cinema HD has a simple interface and it also looks clean. When searching or looking at the recommended content, it looks very similar to the likes of Terrarium, Cyberflix, FilmPlus, etc. This is good because it’s an interface we are all use to when browsing and it’s been kept simple.

A feature I love on Cinema HD that you don’t find in many apps is the auto play next episode option. This is brilliant for when you are watching a series and you don’t want to keep searching and clicking links for the following episodes.

Once you have found what you want to watch, this is where Cinema HD is different. Instead of seeing a description then clicking through again to search for links, it is all there for you. There’s a description and then you will see options on the left to watch trailer, download, watch (this is an ad) and mark as watched.

You don’t need to click on any of those options, simply scroll down the page a little and you will see all the links Cinema HD has found. The links will show white, but if your use a debrid service like Real Debrid or Premiumize, they will show as yellow. I would suggest looking at getting a service like this to add as it gives you premium links which are better quality and have much less chance of buffering. I personally only use debrid links now and can’t actually remember the last time I used a free link. If you’ve not tried it, I would recommend giving it a go.

To link your debrid account to the app, you just go into the apps settings, accounts and select account. There you can login to your Real Debrid or Premiumize to get better links/streams. There is also a User Torrents section, so if you have a library of content on your debrid account, you can access it in Cinema HD.

1 thing to bear in mind with links also, is to take the file size into consideration. If you’re clicking on a 15gb link, chances are, you may get buffering. The smaller the link, the better the stream will run. So if you have issues with streams buffering, try to stick around 2gb max and see if that’s any better.

When clicking a link you will get the option to play, open with, download or copy to clipboard. By selecting play, it will play inside the app using the default player.

Cinema HD App

Play – If you chose to play in an external player such as VLC, it will play in there.

Open with – This will show you all the apps on your device you can use to play the stream.

Download – Needs no explanation, it will simply download the content. Be sure you have the storage capacity if you choose to do this.

I’ve been testing this app for a long amount of time and it always works, it’s also an app majority of streamers still tend to use. Although it may not be considered the best to many, there’s no denying it’s still a brilliant app.

See What Other Streamers Are Using

Here is a post I put on Twitter & Facebook so you can see what a lot of streamers think about Cinema HD and what alternatives they chose to use.

Does Cinema HD Have Ads

Unfortunately yes. There are ad free versions available in most Filelinked stores, but it’s not very often the versions are upto date. The ads aren’t too bad if you know what you want to watch, but can get a bit annoying when searching through that app and visiting different pages. Obviously using the official version with ads is a source of revenue for the developer so you can keep watching for free.

How To Install Cinema HD APK

Installation is very straight forward and I’m guessing most of you already have what’s needed. But I’ll leave a brief guide below for everybody. We will be using Filelinked which is available on all android devices, if you don’t already have it, then follow this.

Install Filelinked

  • Open the browser you use to install apps (usually Downloader)
  • Now open Downloader and type
  • once loaded click the menu (3 lines) in the top left and select Downloads
  • Scroll down a little and click Filelinked
  • Scroll down the page and you will see the download button, select it
  • Follow the install prompts and Filelinked will now be installed

  1. Love this app use EITHER BeeTV or cinema all the time… although got to say having a play problem with BeeTV not playing links occasionally and Cinema HD not capturing Real-Debrid a lot of the time but with persistence it will find them

  2. XBMC in my opinion is still the all round best but Cinema HD is and has been the top standalone APK for some time, as you pointed out I always use the developers official version with adds its a small price to pay to keep the app available and compensation for the developers hard work.
