Terrarium TV Android Install Guide: Multi-Source APK

Are you looking for a working version of the Terrarium TV Android APK? Come and find out how to install a patched Terrarium TV that will stay working after the developer stops work on the app.

Terrarium TV is a popular Android APK that provides the equivalent of Exodus, Specto, or Elysium, without the need for using Kodi. Find out how to install it below.

September 12th: A patched version of Terrarium TV has come out that will stay working after the original developer stops work at the end of September. The install guide and information below have been updated for this new version! You must uninstall the old and follow the new guide below.

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:

Version 9.9.9

Dear all,

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.


Terrarium TV Features and Recent Updates

Following the decision by the original developer to close Terrarium at the end of September and stop updates, a patched working version has been created.

If you have the old original version of Terrarium, you should uninstall before installing this new version with the guide below.

Terrarium TV boasts the following nice features:

  • Sort TV shows by different nations or languages.
  • Bookmark your favourite shows and movies for easy watching later.
  • Sources are ordered in descending video quality.
  • Choose whether to start each media file with or without subtitles.
  • Download files to your Android Kodi box for later watching.
  • Trakt.tv support
  • Real-Debrid support!
  • Support for Android TV, TV Box, Amazon Fire TV & Fire TV Stick
  • Multi-language subtitles
  • Genre selection
  • Native Chromecast support
  • New episode notification



Is Terrarium TV Legal?

According to the Terrarium TV website, “Terrarium TV uses streaming technology instead of torrenting (P2P). Unless you share or upload videos, you’ll be ok.”.

In their terms and conditions, they state: “In case of copyright infringement, please directly contact the responsible parties or the streaming websites. Terrarium TV operates as a search engine of TV shows and movies content found publicly available on the internet, in principle conducting in the same way as Google. However, Terrarium TV strongly believes in the protection of intellectual property and would be willing to assist when possible and applicable. The videos are streamed directly from the third-party video sharing services.”


How to Install Terrarium APK


Terrarium is not available on the Google Play Store. Instead, it must be manually downloaded and sideloaded onto your device. You can also use Android software that automatically sideloads APKs for you. To install Terrarium, follow these steps:

  1. From your Android home screen, navigate to Settings > Security > enable Unknown Sources.
  2. Download the patched Terrarium APK from this link and move it onto your Android TV box.
  3. Navigate to the Terrarium APK file you moved onto your box and run the file. HINT: You can download ES File Explorer from the Google Play Store to make navigating file folders easy. You can also run the APK from inside of ES File Explorer.
  4. When you launch the APK, select Install. Terrarium will install and then it will appear in your apps section when it is done.


Amazon Fire TV

  1. From the Amazon home screen, navigate to Settings > Devices > Developer Options.
  2. Turn On the option to install Apps from Unknown Sources
  3. Head back to the home screen and launch the Amazon App Store.
  4. Click on the Search Bar and search for Downloader.
  5. Click on Download to install the app and launch it once installed.
  6. Type https://bit.ly/2x7b1Gk into the URL box and then click the Go button.
  7. The Terrarium APK will download. Click on Install once you see the setup wizard.
  8. After it finished, click on Done and Delete the APK file from your box.

Terrarium TV is now installed in your Apps area!


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:

  1. Find the title you would like to view in Terrarium. Click on it to bring up the playback window.
  2. Click on Play With
  3. 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.

  1. I have Terrarium dowloaded. but now I want to add Elysium. Is this possible and can someone help me with this?

  2. I could not choose the player in the new version, I have to click yes for the exoplayer and I can say no. Crap, stock in a box with no choice to exit or click no. Bad, I don’t trust this apps…

  3. If I could do anything to support these developers of this type of software I would make every effort to do so. I but the add free versions not pirate them. I did with freeflix to start with.

    What is a tenner for the features and scope of programs you get for free. Do you realise just how precious these products are !!! Support these guys… that’s what I say.

  4. Another scraping source bites the dust. Freeflix is next. We would like to give a shout out to Newtechevolution , Aldren Mayfield and the Misfits idiot crew for leaving such a great paper trail using Paypal. Black Ent Plex, you are next. Netcast guess what ? Emby has already reported you . You fools are all over social media making it so easy. If any of you think running to WordPress will help you are dead wrong. We are in all of your secret Facebook groups…laughing gathering evidence.

  5. LOL Terrarium stop lying . You took it down because our pimp hand is strong. Freeflix you are next! Thats why you cowards disabled comments on your reddit thread. We see everything .

  6. For all of the idiots who can’t manage to install this themselves, and are obviously unfamiliar with Google, go to Doc Squiffy’s Youtube page and follow the instructions in the video.

  7. I have installed Terrarium on my Android phone and in Amazon fire stick but I can not see whole movie in neither of them, what is missing and what should I do.

  8. I suggest using app2fire from Google playstore you can put loads of apks on your firestick using it. A simple matter of entering your ip into the setup menu and then click on the app you want to send over and it will do exactly that.
    For firestick users I recommend sending chrome onto it also

  9. I cant install Terrarium on the firestick since 1.7.1,when I try the updates I am getting not install error..Anyone got this problem?,any solution?..HELP!!

  10. Buddy F…Workaround for Terrarium TV worked! Thank you for posting. Smash is down so no Exodus…Fusion is down so no Specto…I try not to complain too much since we don’t pay ridiculous cable bills but jeeze… 😖

  11. Can you download this onto an Xbox one? I have it on a tablet and phone. Awesome app lobe It!!!!

  12. 68002 worked fine on my firetv earlier today, but now it’s giving me “Not a valid URL/No Data Received” on my firestick

  13. Okay folks, I found a work around for the parse error issue. Do not use the 68002 code, instead type in this address manually in firedl: http://aidymatic.co.uk/downloads/fdl/t.apk then select next to download then select install, once installed open the Terrarium Tv app, it will tell you there is an update to the app, select to update it to the latest version. Hope this helps. Good luck.

  14. Same issue here, parse error on two different devices, fire stick and fire tv. Something must be wrong with the download server. Used fired code 68002 and it is not working I get the error immediately.

  15. Does not work. Gives pause error. If you give a dl method make sure it works as from the comments I am not the only one having a problem

  16. Rather than go thru all that trouble just download apk to phone or usb and sideload using es file explorer. Will take5 mins and you have terrarium tv on yor android box.

  17. Are you people retarded or something?

    It is really simple to install, and no it doesn’t just play trailers!

  18. The ads are a killer. I’d rather pay a fee than be forced to watched added. Ads you can’t skip. I’ll stick with kodi till they fix the ad issue.

  19. Buddy, I forgot to mention that if possible you might want to use Terrarium TV on a dedicated phone, when you have it installed it will continue to run 24-7. I go into my app drawer several times a day and turn it off as it always keeps restarting and it’s battery heavy. Can’t find a way to keep it shut off til it’s needed. 🙁

  20. Yes you can, Buddy. I have it on my Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, I open it and use Screen Mirroring to send it to my Roku stick. Usually works great but it will eat up your battery so I usually run it with my phone on the charger. Hope that helps, Buddy. 🙂

  21. Got it, don’t know how 😂 4th time install, 2nd time update, 4th time codec install(update?) for MX player,
