September 10th: Some unfortunate news: After taking a few months hiatus, the developer of Terrarium TV has announced that the popular Android APK will be shutting down. A new Terrarium TV update popped up today with the following message:
It has always been a great pleasure to work on this project. However, it is time to say goodbye, I am going to shut down Terrarium TV, forever.
I know this day (would) come eventually, I know it would be hard to let go. But it is really time for me to move on to other side projects.
Thank you for all your support through the years. Thanks to all Terrarium TV supporters and communities. Thank you, Nic, and all the people around the world who care about this project.
Please note that you will not be able to open the Terrarium TV app after the end of September as the app will close itself automatically. Please DO NOT try to click the update button because it will not download any new version of the app.
Thank you and farewell.
The Terrarium TV Android app is an APK that you can load onto any Android device such as a phone, tavlet, or TV Box. Similar to third party Kodi addons that scrape the public internet for media, Terrarium TV does the same thing without requiring the Kodi interface for media playback. Instead, it uses an Android media player, such as VLC or MX Player, to playback files.
Terrarium TV Android Information
Anyone with an Android Kodi box (Fire Stick and Fire TV included) can install Terrarium TV.
Just like multi-source Kodi addons such as Covenant, Exodus, or Elysium, the Terrarium TV Android app is a multi-source addon, meaning that it pulls streams from a variety of resolvers. The developers behind Terrarium have to update these resolvers when they go down and work to ensure that content is available in the addon.
Terrarium hosts no content and only scrapes data from the public internet.

Remove Ads on Terrarium TV
Ever since the upgrade to v1.9.4 and higher, there has been an increase in the number of ads shown in the Terrarium TV APK. The culprit is the Yes Player app, which Terrarium TV uses as its default media player. Yes Player throws up an ad when you launch a stream. To fix this issue, you simply have to select the MX Player for playback, which is ad free.
To remove ads on Terrarium TV:
- Find the title you would like to view in Terrarium. Click on it to bring up the playback window.
- Click on Play With
- Select MX Player
Your stream will now launch without any more ads.
If you do not see MX Player in the list, you do not have it installed on your Android device. You can launch the Google Play Store, search for MX Player, and install it from here. It will now appear in your list.
