Okay I can admit… Kodi can be a bit frustrating at times. Lately there has been a movement of people away from Kodi going to Android AKPs for streaming TV.  I have already tried and reviewed Terrarium TV and given my thoughts about Terrarium TV vs Kodi. However, the Mobdro APK is another popular Android app which has a lot of advantages over Kodi.

Modbro is Amazing for Live TV Streaming

The Mobdro Android APK is extremely powerful. it has a ton of content mainly live TV channels and lots of 24/7 TV shows and movies.

More importantly, Mobdro seems incredibly fast and reliable. One commenter noted that Mobdro is about 98% reliable in their streams. I also found that streams started playing less than one second after tapping on a channel. I love it.

How to Find the Mobdro APK Website

If you do a Google search for “how to install mobdro APK“, you’re going to find a lot of websites that are posing as the official Mobdro website. It’s very difficult just to know which is the right one, except that you will find lots of ads on the fake websites.

The same is true for many of the Kodi alternative streaming APK websites including Terrarium TV, Morpheus, TV Zion, Live Net TV, and many others.

If you look at the bottom of the search result page, you will see a notice of DMCA take-downs received by Google.

After reviewing the linked complaints, you can see which domain is the official Mobdro website, which at the time was www.mobdro.to which is now redirecting to www.mobdro.sc.

Note: It is very important to go to the official website for installing APKs like this! Installing from an unofficial source is a big security risk because those other people might embed malicious code in the APK.

How to Install the Mobdro APK

Installing the Mobdro APK on your Android device is actually very easy.

Just go to www.mobdro.sc and click the “Download the App” button.

After it downloads, open it to launch the Android app installer. If you don’t already have the setting checked to enable app from unknown sources, it will prompt you to do so.

Once the Mobdro app is installed, open it, accept the terms, allow permissions, and you’re ready to go.

Mobdro Instead of Kodi?

Just to be clear, if you’re a fan of Kodi like me, you can still use Mobdro and Kodi together.  They can run side by side as two different apps on the same Android device.

You’re free to switch between them as you wish.

Mobdro on Fire TV Stick

By the way, if you have an Amazon Fire TV stick, box, cube, or whatever, the Mobdro APK works great!

I was very pleasantly surprised to see that the exact same APK running on a Fire TV Stick looks a lot different than the one running on my Android phone.  The whole interface is laid out very nicely on the Fire TV device.  It makes the Mobdro experience feel very native and seamless on Fire OS.

Here are some screenshots…
