We all love watching movies for free. Paying even a few dollars for each painting can be very expensive for the family budget. The HDRezka app allows you to find free movies from the internet and watch them on your TV. There are many similar services, but this is one of the most popular. When we looked at the best alternatives to HD Videobox, this application was included in the list. Most of us are already familiar with HDRezka, thanks to their web service. This is one of the largest libraries on the Russian Internet, which has been working properly for a long time.
What is this HDRezka app?
HDRezka Client is a library of free movies that you can watch online. The application itself weighs a little, as it does not contain special data in itself. It simply collects movies from open sources on the Internet and allows you to watch them for free on TV through a media player. There are many series, films, including new ones, available here. The application provides access to all content from the site Rezka.ag in high quality.
Important! The application was developed by a third-party developer who practically retired in early 2022. That is, it is not quite an official application. There are sources, perhaps someone will continue his work.
The advantages of the application for Android TV include the following parameters:
- Filters . Convenient content filtering by a number of parameters. There are headings: “Hot news”, “Popular”, “Latest arrivals”, “Pending”. It is possible to select by category. You can select the country of production, filter by genre, year of release, rating and popularity.

Where to download HDRezka Client?
This question is difficult. We usually recommend downloading on the w3bsit3-dns.com forum , there is a verified version and constant updates. And it’s a really good place where the latest version of the app is usually available. However, it happens that the file is lost and it is not possible to download the “official application” of the current version from there conditionally. In this case, it remains only to look for an update of the Android TV application on third-party sources. As long as we provide a link to the latest version of the HDRezka 2.1.4 application, it can be downloaded for free from Google Drive .
The installation process itself is simple: transfer the apk file to the TV, run it, allow the installation and you’re done.

Why does not it work?
There are also some problems with the HDRezka application, most of which can be fixed.
Why HDRezka stopped working and what can be done:
- Filters don’t work . Very old application bug. To fix it, you need to change the number of films in a row – no more than 3 (can be done in the settings). You should also choose the type first (movie, cartoon, etc.), then the genre, and at the end of the year. If it didn’t work, all that remains is to reinstall the application, but the problem should go away even without it.
- Movies won’t start . It may be in the IP or the mirror. It’s worth installing a VPN and trying it out. If it doesn’t help, you can switch to another player in the settings. Mirror replacement works very often (how to do this is described in the last paragraph of the list).
- IP address blocked . It seems that the built-in player can provoke blocking of the client by IP address. This is not an official application from the developers of Rezka, so the system may block you. It is known from the forums that everything works fine with MXPlayer.
- A message pops up: “Enter the address of the site.” If HDRezka asks you to specify a mirror, you should simply enter the site https://rezka.ag/ . Still not working? Write a letter to [email protected] with any content and in return you will receive the address of the mirror, which you need to insert.

This is really a worthy service for watching movies for free, which we can recommend to our dear readers. Thank you for your attention and if you have any questions, welcome to the comments.
