OneBox HD APK is an application for streaming movies and TV Shows online. It has tons of content of HD quality which are updated regularly. The interface is user-friendly. Want more? Favorite the videos you like so that you are able to watch them later. Keep track of what you are watching with the watchlist. Download videos for watching them offline (Keep in mind that FireStick Devices have low storage, hence downloading isn’t recommended).
One of the cons of this app is that its in-built player is not properly working. So, you will need to install MV-Cast Player to watch videos in OneBox HD. If you play videos with the MV-Cast player in OneBox HD, you also get subtitle support.
OneBox HD is a decent streaming app, however it lacks features such as Real Debrid & Trakt. If installing another Video Player seems like a hassle to you, I recommend using other apps from our Best FireStick apps list.
