Terrarium TV developers have announced that they are shutting down the app for good. This app has been the part of our lives for very long. It has allowed us to watch movies and shows for free. I have been a huge fan of this app and am very sad to see it go. But, there is nothing I can do about it. If the developers have decided to pull the plug on it, the app must go down. After September 2018 you will not be able to open the app, even if you have it installed on your device.
But, there is some good news for you. There is a modified version of Terrarium TV that will let you continue using your favorite app even after it has been shut down. The Terrarium TV Mod version will continue to host the movies and shows that were the part of the app at the time it was discontinued. However, there are a few things you would want to know about it.
First, even though you can continue watching the existing content, no new content will be added to it. So, if there is a new movie or episode, you will want to look for other avenues. The mod version will not get any updates. This means there will be no bug fixes, no new streams, and no developer support. It is on its own.
In this guide, I show you how to install the Terrarium TV Mod app on FireStick.

You just need to change one security setting that will allow you to install the apps from outside Amazon Store.
