Terrarium TV shut down by the developer

It looks like Terrarium TV has been shut down by the very developer of the app.

For those that have never heard of Terrarium TV, it's an Android app (APK) that could be installed on Amazon Fire Stick / Amazon TV. It allowed one to download movies (often still in theaters), as well as current TV series including premium channels (HBO, Showtime, etc.).

We switched to the Fire Stick a few months back to chop our Dish bill into 1/8th of what I was paying monthly, and it seemed Netflix wants you to pay for everything now. We downloaded several viewing apps like Hulu & Kodi. But, Terrarium TV was awesome, and now it's gone. Granted some of the movies on there were horribly bootlegged Chinese copies (i.e. someone in a theater with a handheld), but most were of good quality.

TeaTV is apparently a decent replacement, though not as many options as Terrarium.

My son must have that. I don't know how but as soon as something hits the box office...he's got it. Yea, he's a tech nerd.

I switched over to Gears TV. There’s a YouTube video from Electrical M.D. that show the install. If you chose to download the apps, you do not have to subscribe to his channel.
Gears is actually better than Terrarium with buffering on the front end, but still occasionally locks up. The other down fall is not being able to pause with the Firestick.

I have Kodi on my fire stick, but rarely use it.
