The end of Terrarium TV

It seems that the popular app Terrarium TV is shutting up shop. Known for giving thousands of users free access to movies and TV shows from around the globe, Terrarium TV has been a thorn in the sides of the authorities who are constantly on the warpath against copyright infringement.

But it seems that maybe pressure from authorities has finally brought down the app which allows users to stream content over the internet or download episode and films to local sources to watch at a later date.

And the source of its closure? Well, it comes from the app itself, who in their latest update has posted what will be a very sad message for some.

It reads:

New Version Found : 9.9.9

Version : 9.9.9
Dear all,

It has always been a great pleasure to work on this project. However, it is time to say goodbye. I am going to shut down Terrarium TV, forever.

I know this day will come eventually. I know it would be hard to let go. But it is really time for me to move on to other projects.

Thank you for all your support through the years. Thanks to all Terrarium TV supporters and communities. Thank you, Nic, and all the people around the world who care about this project.

Please note you will not be able to open the Terrarium TV app after the end of September as the app will close itself automatically. Please DO NOT try to click the Update button because it will not download any new version of the app.

Thank you and farewell.

Best regards,

Terrarium TV

TV showing the RIP message from Terrarium TV

Whilst it may seem that this is a victory for the legal system, we won’t be surprised if another app pops up to take its place. Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.

  • Sejal says:

    Terrarium tv is the only app which suits me best. I have to travel alot and during that TTV is what helps. I feel so sad. I hope it comes back.

    • OhMyJosh says:

      Every time one of these apps close down, another pops up. It used to be Exodus on Kodi, now it’s TTV, there will no doubt be something else cropping up next.

    • LP says:

      Agree with all comments that TTV was the very best app out there and I am deeply sad to see it go. A huge thank you to Nitro Zenon for all the hard work and effort it must have taken to develop it and keep it running for so long. Your efforts were very much appreciated. Thanks again.

    • Jeanet says:

      Me too sucks thought had until END OF SEPTEMBER but here I am am blocked from the app with that stupid note on my screen wtf this is some B.S.

  • Shawn Bailey says:

    Wow, you guys are the first to report this, great work. Could it be a hack by a competitor.

  • Rob says:

    This freaking sucks, I love TTV!! Hate to see it go! R.I.P. TerrariumTv

  • Nuria Marchant says:

    I just got the news on my telly when I wanted to watch my series. I couldn’t believe it! That’s why I had to Google it just to be sure. Kudus on reporting it A.S.A.P. This is by far the best one I’ve ever had. I’m so sad and heartbroken! Can anyone suggest any other application?

  • Karen says:

    This is the only app I watch!! Now what?? Is there a good alternative?

  • Phil Dunphy says:

    Really Really sad that this is ending. Terrarium TV is my after-work, after-dinner and weekend buddy for my fav shows and movies. I got the same notification today and cannot access the app anymore. This is the only app that works fully with android TV. In terms of functionality, nothing beats this app – whether it is subtitle support or well-organized menu. I honestly dont know which app can replace this. Hope something soon comes up or the creator of the app changes his mind.

    • D C says:

      Dude, no kiding…. Terrarium TV changed everything about watching tv… When I wanted, what I wanted and even new shows I probably would not even have watched if it wasn’t for how great Terrarium was about putting it all together in a simple package. Man I am bummed….

    • Robert Johnson says:

      I’m so sad the only app I absolutely love is gone I’ve tried other apps and they dont work as well as terrarium please come back back or someone make a clone

  • Jasmine says:

    I’m so sad that this is coming to an end, I only just found this app and it’s the best one out there. Please don’t leave me 😭

  • Woo says:

    Is there a way to remove and keep watching until the end of september? Everytime I close the app and reopen this message pops up and it wont allow me to go back.

    • OhMyJosh says:

      We don’t think so, we hear it shows as “No Data” and forces you to update the app. Then all you get is that message.

      • KAMILLA Lavoie says:

        I tried and I was able to open it up without the goodbye message but I just keep getting the no data message when I click on anything

    • Leo says:

      Hit the update button let the update happen but when it gets to the install screen hit cancel. If you’ve saved your shows to favorites you can still access just have to go thru the fake install a few times.

  • Riddhi says:

    My heart broke

  • Edith Davenport says:

    So sad 😢 , is there anything else Comparable out there ?

  • Anne says:

    This is too sad, now I wont be able to watch my series next episodes, and have nothing to watch anymore, I am a state pensioner and can not afford anything that requires subscriptions, so cannot tell you the emptiness this now brings for me

  • Lesley Bennett-Chaney says:

    Gutted…this is my go to app. I have no idwa wjat to do now, as all my shows were saved in favourites. Anyone know of a decent alternative?

  • Jane says:

    Mine has already closed and can no longer access it ..terrarium is the only app I’ve found that allows me to watch a fantastic amount of tv shows that I can’t find anywhere else..so sad

  • Edith Davenport says:

    So sad 😢 is there anything else comparable out there ?

  • Samantha Lloyd says:

    You can not shut terrarium down hundreds of thousands probably millions of people use this app it is the best for tv shows and movies there is nothing else that compares to this ! DO NOT SHUT IT DOWN!

  • Jo Watts says:

    Noooooooooo!! Hopefully someone will share an alternative here soon to save us all! 😭

  • HelenRMad says:

    so frustrating its the best app, Showbox is great but does not have as wide selection of tv series

  • Rob says:

    Morpheus TV is a good temporary alternative. It is no longer being supported but still works fine. Not as good as Terrarium but not too much worse.

  • isa says:

    download Popcorntime if u miss terrarium

  • L Boogie says:

    Here are 3 alternatives well 4..
    1. The Movie DB
    2. Morpheus TV
    3. FreeFlixHQ
    4. OneBoxHD

  • Marlon Rogers says:

    Iptv next option.

  • Tomar says:

    It’s feel like 80% of me is Dead -.-

  • Godric says:

    It is sad….I’ve switched to Morpheus TV for now, hope this helps anyone fill that empty hole Terrarium left us all with. If anyone stumbles onto another one please let us all know.

  • Victoria says:

    My kids and I are so shocked and saddened by this.
    We all really loved Terrarium but I am sure they got into trouble for providing the free service. Absolutely gutted big time.

  • Kae Hoop says:

    Grrrrr…this sucks! I hope its just a hack. Is it weird that it says 9/11 and today is 9/10? Does anyone know if this has anything to do with Net Neutrality?

  • deez nutz says:

    It sucks soooo bad. I would suggest a combo of showbox and kodii for now. There are also lots of sites that host the content provided by terrarium. The way terrarium works if I’m not mistaken is by providing us with the content from the host websites, making it easier to locate and choose the best possible stream. With a little digging, I’m sure you could find one of these such as vidzitv, gorilla video, and daclips and be able to continue to enjoy your movies and series. Also, websites like surf the channel(which now sucks probably for the same reason)should be able to be found. Just haven’t had the need since terrarium. I will update with my findings shortly. If anyone else has any suggestions or would be kind enough to correct me if I’m wrong, please so so.

  • Kings says:

    F***k man I use this to watch almost every series and movie I feel like breaking down!!!!!

  • Motomarkk says:

    My life is over . Please help !!!!!

  • Motomarkk says:

    Help !!!!!

  • Ashley says:

    Kinda ticked off, we just bought the android box to save money, there is no way I’m going back to spending $200 a month on satellite!!! Those companies are the real crooks! If they don’t want people creating apps to watch these show illegally, maybe the tv companies should lower their prices!

  • Cindy Montalbano says:

    I am dismayed that terrarium TV will no longer be available. As someone who is disabled and on a very limited income it has provided me with countless hours of entertainment such as nothing else has. There were no other apps to even compare with TTV. It’s user-friendliness was Head and Shoulders above all the others and it’s field.

  • emvee says:

    showbox is the next best thing…

  • Demi says:

    9/10 NEVER FORGET🇺🇸

  • Eddie C Edgerton says:

    that explains a lot why name is only updated certain shows and only certain movies is on there somebody already know ahead of time I mean I feel torn because just absolutely a whole lot of shows but now all I can do is be sad cuz that was one of the greatest apps in phone history

  • Dee says:

    Thanks Nitroxeon for the time you gave us. I have only been using for 5 months; your site was so good I uninstalled Kodi from all my FS and didn’t miss it a bit.
    Thanks again and good luck with all !!!

  • Tommy says:

    I would pay for TTV, just saying! Nitro thanks for all your hard work. You definitely made an impact on the tech world. Good Luck in the future.

  • Michelle says:

    Is anyone having trouble removing the message from their tv screen?

    • Sunny says:

      Yes! I can’t close it. And since my firestick updates a cpl weeks ago, it doesn’t reset to trending anymore on its own. How do I close the note?? I have a lot of notes to take before this is all gone…

    • OneStunna says:

      Click on update but dont install it. You can’t click cancel in the message but you can on the next screen after you hit update.

  • Kings says:

    Any other suggestions because am freaking out here!!!!!

  • Heather says:

    I’m devastated!!! I have seen some suggestions and will definitely try them out. Everyone please keep posting new suggestions. I just don’t think there is anything out there as good as TTV was!!! So sad!

  • Fred says:

    Yeah, found out an hour ago…. nooooooo! Mid vintage series that i can’t find anywhere else.

    Well, i guess all good things come to an end. Thanks to nitroxenon for this marvellous app. If you ever read this, you are a master coder sir. Respect. You will go on to earn big bucks with some corporation now…

    Popcorn time sucks. So does showbox. As for Kodi with those stupid addons, that provide links that mostly don’t work. My fav part that I really liked about TTV was the link verification process. Each and every link provided always worked. No other app that I’ve tried has that level of confidence.


  • Khan Thomas says:

    I’m beyond miserable now… this is so unfair… how do I live now

  • James T Kirk says:

    Goodbye you legendary service….you will be missed

  • Karolh says:

    An absolutely great app that offered unlimited watching pleasure and I suspect it will be quite difficult to find a source of equivalent quality.

  • Rob Something says:

    TeaTV seems to work pretty good, albeit it needs a cross of mouse and direction pad to work properly (for android).
    The downfall is the ads are about double what terrarium was…but overall, its seems okay and has been around for a bit actually. I think this may be my go-to outside of Kodi (Neptune Rising) for the moment now that TTV is gone.

    Thank you Peter Chen for the time you had it up for us! To the haters that wouldnt let up and persisted on knocking him down for his hard work…get lost and stop being stuck up!

  • One from the darkside says:

    Such a fantastic app. Will be sadly missed. But people wouldnt need to create these kind of apps if the robbing bast@*ds at virgin sky and bt didnt need to keep filling the pockets of greedy arsehole CEO’s and managers. But then that will NEVER change 😳

  • Greg says:

    Nope the person who made app is in Asia. There it is the 11th.

  • Slinky says:

    😖😖😖😖😓😓😓😓😓😓😓😓🤕🤕🤕🤕🤕🤕🤕😳😳😳😳😳😳😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱i just died inside

  • Tommy says:

    oh god no why no why

  • Starquin98 says:

    NOOOOOOOO😥😥😥😥😥😥 Say it isn’t so,?? My life is no longer whole😭😭😭

  • Phil says:

    Just downloaded the app Bobby movie and is a good alternative.

  • Sunny says:

    I also.cannot get the goodbye note off my screen. My firestick did some funky update a cpl weeks ago and since then, my Terrarium never resets itself back to trending. Will it crash if I click the update? I have to make a lot of notes about shows on my terrarium before it’s dead and buried…

    (I can’t find the note I tried to leave already, so hope this doesn’t post twice.)

  • Winters says:

    Gee, he couldn’t have just handed it off to someone else to handle? Also, why don’t anonymous people handle these things?

  • Art says:

    Check out EffluxTV.com

  • Channy1st says:

    A couple ppl on here suggested try Tea tv so I did it’s kind of similar to ttv. Now whatever project released in the future by Mr. Chen I’m all in for I look forward to your work in the near future. With all the praise your getting here I’m sure it will be as hard for you to stay away as it is is living without you genus. Happy travels and may our paths cross again soon. R.I.P. TTV

  • Stephen G. Younger II says:

    I thought Morpheus tv was shut down?

  • Audra Bachstein says:

    Teatv is the closest I have found, try that

  • Sed says:

    Teatv.net in DOWNLOADER.

  • faizul says:

  • Andrew Lewis says:

  • Jeeya Deori says:

    • l sherriff says:

      terrarium tv thankyou for all your hard work and goodluck with future projects. people looking for an alternative try teatv. 2nd best to terrarium tv imo. works on android and firestick, easy to install on firestick. make sure you have the downloader app. open downloader, click on browse, clear the space(add) and type in https://teatv.net click on install for android then it loads up. very similar to ttv. works fine

  • Ddarkone says:

    I used to watch showbox then I got TTV was in love, every device I have I have it downloaded on it I even refer it to my friends, what to do now watch YouTube? @$!#/

  • Sreekutty Sreenivas says:

    Please come back. I cannot believe that u did this :'( . Nitro xenon pls bring it back. :'( :'( :'(

  • Amber says:

    Moviebox sucks. Freeflix hq sucks. Redbox sucks. The list goes on. They either just sit there and buffer continuously or u have to have an account. Morpheus seems to be the only one that’s comparable to terrarium so far.

  • Kai says:

    TTV was my go to app to take me away from the stress of the world. Damn…… I will miss it.

    Thank you for this app NitroXenon.
    Thank you!!!!!!!!

  • Deepak says:

    I am completely delighted in perusing your article. Being a devoted peruser, I appreciate perusing articles on various points and I am not fixed to a specific theme or subject. Your composition way is very addictive and locks in the readers in the most persuasive manner. I discovered the vast majority of the articles in your site kept me connected, particularly this article. Much valued!

  • ankit says:

    you can use alternative app

  • Peter Chan says:

    TTV was indeed the best app for the purpose but we still have alternatives.

    • MaddOx says:

      There will always be alternatives, but as it was a favourite for many, some people can’t find anything they enjoy as good and many have returned to paid subscription services such as Amazon Prime Video and Netflix.
