How To Install Kodi On Fire TV Or Fire TV Stick

This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to install Kodi on Fire TV or Fire TV Stick.

This page is continually updated and will always provide the most relevant guides with the most recent stable release of Kodi.  As of today, Kodi 17.4 Krypton is the stable version.

I have developed 5 different guides, which I have outlined below.

In my opinion, Method #1 is the easiest since you don’t need a computer and it takes less than 2 minutes.  You simply install a free program from your Amazon Fire TV App Store called Downloader and install Kodi onto your Fire TV or Firestick through that.  Pick the tutorial below that works best for your situation!

You may ask what is a Fire TV?  The Fire TV is a streaming media box manufactured by Amazon that you hook up to your television and it allows you to watch online tv shows, movies, etc.  The Fire TV Stick does the same thing as the box but it is less expensive and easier to conceal than the actual rectangular box.

If you are trying to decide whether you want to install Kodi on a Fire TV device, here are a few things to consider.  The Fire TV Stick has less processing power so it won’t be as snappy as the Fire TV.  Also, The Fire TV Stick does not have expandable storage like the Fire TV.  The Fire TV allows you to add additional storage through a micro sd card or USB thumb drive.

If you don’t currently own an Amazon Fire TV Stick, you may purchase through the Amazon Web site via links here – Fire TVFire TV Stick

Why would want to install Kodi on Fire TV or Firestick?  Because there are endless addons that will provide free entertainment that you would normally pay for.

Kodi doesn’t do much by itself and you must install 3rd party addons that will provide you with free movies, TV shows, sports, adult entertainment, etc.  Use the following link to get my free guide which will show you how to install the best Kodi addons with the click of a button.  This guide has already been accessed by over 200,000 Fire TV/Stick users like you.  You will need this after you install Kodi by using one of the tutorials below.

    Can anyone help I tried installing kodi on a fire stick today (not my first time and never a problem before) but I put in the kodistable and the long URL and kept get a URL not found error code on both?? Any help would be great thank you!

    • Hi Rachael, try again. My site was down for approximately 20 minutes yesterday and you must have tried installing Kodi when it was. Fixed now.

      • Rachael Lamons

        Ok great I had a feeling as I’ve never had a problem before and use everything you’ve taught me very often!!! Thank you so much you are a doll!

        • You are welcome! Thanks for comment.

  • Sandy Maz

    I installed Kodi, but it doesn’t have the icons at the top when launched. ex: the gear, the package, etc.

    • Sandy, go into Fire TV Settings / Applications / Manage Applications / Kodi and uninstall it. Then, reinstall with the first video above. Something didn’t install properly on your Fire TV.

  • Josh Marlan

    I typed in downloader, I see the icon as it appears in the video, I click it and it says “app not found”
    if I can’t even get the first step to work, how am I going to do this install? so frustrating

    • Josh, make sure that your Fire TV firmware is up to date. You can find that in Fire TV Settings / Device / About / Check for Updates. Also, try restarting both your device and router if that doesn’t work.

    Hi I started with a 1st gen fire stick, and upgraded to 2nd gens (fire stick & box) when they came out. I’ve been with Troy since the get GI. By the way, thanks Troy for all you do.
    So here’s the problem every time I want to do an update, or add on. My Firebox is a gaming edition, and only came with a game controller. I’ve been having so much trouble with trying to update Jodi I just deleted it & re installed it through Downloader. It seemed to install fine, but when I try to go to Kodi settings nothing. I can push every button on my game controller and it doesn’t budge. Its also telling me it looks like I’ve installed a new controller do I want to go to settings? It has a yes/no option but won’t allow me to go to yes.
    I guess I’m just going to have to buy a new remote, unless someone can help me out with this. Now, Kodi isn’t even showing up on my downloaded apps even though I’ve installed it again. Aggravated in Chi Town!

    • Jim Casy

      Maybe try to use the remote from the 2nd gen firestick you mentioned in the first sentence to help you get into the settings when it asks you and where your game controller wont do it for you. Unpair it from your fire stick first. Make sure power is off to all other Amazon Fire devices and (i think) hold down the home button on the remote for 10 seconds directly in front of the box you want to pair and it should go into pairing…(i think that’s how it goes…but Google is good if not).

  • Ade O’Donnell

    I’ve managed to get kodi on but can’t get addons it just says not connected to network but it is ?

    • Hi Ade, try restarting both your Fire TV and router.
