Is it Any Good?
The original and best Kodi alternative and daddy to all the android tv applications that you see around today. Terraium TV though is now no more. On the 11th of September 2018, the developer made an official announcement saying that they would not be carrying the project forward. You may see many applications that promise to be Terrarium but they are simply clones or forks of the original programme. Well, the code that was made public which we would bet is not all of it.
The original and best but no longer working in its original form
What Does it Do?
Terrarium TV was the first viable alternative to Kodi which was simple and easy to use. Acting like a giant search engine it would use web scrapers to gather all the newest links to content each day and then put them together.
It also had a really neat TV Calendar which allowed you to see all your upcoming favourite shows so you would know when the episodes would be ready to stream.
What Platforms Does it Work on?
Terrarium TV did work on all Android devices
- TV Calendar
- One of the largest media libraries online
- Receive notifications of new movies and episodes
- Download content and watch it locall
- Worked with a wide range of external media players
- Sophisticated sorting and filtering systems
- Access to HD and 4K Videos
- High quality links
- Compatible with a wide range of Android devices
- Simple and intuitive lay out which is now regularly copied across all Android TV applications
YOUR INTERNET ACTIVITY IS BEING WATCHED
ReviewVPN cannot attest to the legality, security and privacy of the applications discussed on this site. It is highly recommended that you use a VPN service while streaming or using Kodi.
Currently, your IP 126.96.36.199 is visible to everyone and your Browser is being tracked by Advertisers & ISP Provider.
Here are the main reasons why you must use a VPN:
- Your activities are hidden from your ISP, the government, and from the apps you are using.
- You can access additional movies and TV streams.
- ISP attempts to throttle are thrwarted thus reducing buffering issues.
- Geographically restricted content like Netflix and Hulu can be unblocked.
A VPN works be replacing your ISP-assigned IP address and creating an encrypted tunnel. We recommend the no log service offered by IPVanish. It works well on a Firestick and offers the fastest possible speeds.
Pros and Cons
As Terrarium TV is no longer working see our extended section on best alternative to find those android tv apps which have the closest approximation to Terrarium.
Is it Safe to Use?
No, Terrarium TV is no longer being supported by the official developer. Do not download any apk’s that say they are the “newly released” version of Terrarium. They are absolutely everywhere and you are almost certainly downloading a virus or malware
Is it Legal or Grey?
Terrarium operated in a grey area and we suspect part of the reason why they shut down is they were just getting too much heat than they wanted. We are sure they made some money, but by being so popular and acing as a library for pirated content Terrarium was essentially sponsoring free access to piracy.
Should I Use This App with a VPN?
You always use a VPN when trying to connect to any form of online streaming or downloading. For a few reasons.
Firstly, even if it’s legal if your internet provider sees you using much more bandwidth than your numbers then they may try and “throttle” your connection. This means that they reduced your bandwidth to limit the amount of data you can use in anyone period.
Secondly, if you are trying to access an android tv application similar to Terrarium without a VPN, you won’t be able to. Your access will be blocked because ISP’s actively work against any sites that allow you to view copyrighted or pirated material.
Thirdly you can keep your privacy intact and your IP anonymous using an encrypted VPN tunnel. Which allows you to send information undetected between the VPN client on your device and your

How Long Has it Been Around?
Terrarium started around 2017 and quickly became a rival to Pop Corn Time, which at the time was the main Kodi alternative. Popcorn Time allowed you to stream straight from Torrents while Terrarium introduced a giant scraper delivering 3rd party links from across the web
Is it a Terrarium Clone?
What is the Development Team like?
Terrarium TV was developed by an Asian based programmer called Peter Chan aKa Nitro Zenon
As soon as Terrarium TV dissapeared and even before then a number of great replacements have risen up to take it’s place.
Zion TV probably stands out as being the best non-Terrarium clone, with thousands and users, great content and also a really innovative amount of features including super fast streaming as well as integration with Premiumise, Real Debrian and Trak.TV. They even offer a premium service starting from as little as $1.50 per month, which removes adverts. The leading contender for a non-Terrarium Clone.
However from the stable of Terrarium clones there are plenty of contenders, with our 4 favourites being Cyberflix, Cinema HD, Tea TV ( which has been around almost as long as Terrarium) and Bee TV
Cyberflix has an almost identical UI to Terrarium, there are no ads in application and it even has the same TV calendar as well as a download function to watch content online.
CinemaHD is unique in that it only scrapes and shows working links, and even has a kids mode. As well as having a large selection of HD movies, again as a clone it has a smiliar UI to Terrarium.
Tea TV has time on its side and it’s development team are one of the oldest in the business. It has an extensive number of functions including in app tutorials, fast providers, live TV, good sort and filter functions as well as auto play and auto next.
Bee TV is reasonably new but works well, has good sort functions and an intuitive user interface, simple categories, multiple link providers, an auto play and auto next function.
All of the above have really done Terrarium justice in providing an application we are sure that NitroXenon would be proud of.
Though Terrarium may be gone, there are many great applications jostling to take its place.
We repeat our word of caution by assuring you that Terrarium no longer works and any apk’s you download are likely to be infected with Malware.
