Terrarium TV, the Android platform for content

Terrarium TV, the Android platform for content

Streaming TV services are becoming the norm for digital entertainment. However, there will always be those who do not want to pay to enjoy this content, and developers willing to create applications that offer these services. Terrarium TV

One of these applications, which offer this content, in exchange for tolerating some advertising is called Terrarium TV, and it is one of the most popular on the spectrum.

What is Terrarium TV

It is an audiovisual content distribution service (movies, series and other programs) created to be used under the Android environment. In essence, the application allows access to the contents, but does not store them on its own servers, and manages the download. Much of this content is material that is subject to copyright claims, such as Netflix material or first-run movies. Terrarium TV

But this does not entail, in principle, any legal problem, since the app only gives access to the servers that contain the material; and those servers are not from Terrarium. But the app receives benefits from the advertising it displays, so it profits from the content it gives access to.

Mobile Application

Terrarium TV, being an application for Android, is conceived as a service for mobile phones and tablets, and it is designed as such and that is how it works. It can be downloaded from the official website or from a reliable source.

The installation works through the execution of an APK containing the application. It must be remembered that, for this to work, Android must be configured to allow the execution of software from unknown sources (Settings > Security > Unknown sources). Terrarium TV

Officially, the Terrarium TV project is in limbo, since the official website appears closed, and users who have the app installed receive a warning to uninstall it, since their IPs could be being tracked. Terrarium TV

In September 2018, the developer left a message stating that the official website was shutting down, which in fact happened shortly after. Despite having indicated that there were no plans to reactivate it, the community has not lost hope that this will happen. Terrarium TV

However, there are still several applications that can serve as alternatives to Terrarium TV, and that can be used according to the personal convenience of each person:


Probably the most complete option in terms of content, and in fact the most popular. The only problem it can present, particularly for the novice user, is the need for plugins to be installed in order to access the content sources. But it’s nothing that can’t be solved with a little learning and/or advice. Terrarium TV

Bobby Movie

This is the ideal application for those who do not want to complicate their lives. Just install, and enjoy the content. It comes with its own player and a very complete catalogue. It sits on the other side of Kodi in terms of ease of use. Terrarium TV

Popcorn Time

One of the most venerable applications in these fights. It worked through a website that was closed, the same as the source for the APK. However, it is still possible to download it to use it, since it works through torrents that are still operational (you should, however, be careful with these torrents). Terrarium TV

Another alert has to do with downloading the app: since the official site is closed, malicious clones of Popcorn Time have proliferated. You have to do some research to find a reliable source.


Terrarium TV, despite not working, opened up the possibilities for users of streaming programs to get more options when installing one of these apps, and to know how to beware of those that result in deceptive offers. All in all, it seems that for the moment the game will open, run for a while, and then be closed for content reasons.
