This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to install Kodi on Firestick (Fire TV Stick), Fire TV, and Fire TV Cube. This process will also work on Fire TV televisions.

Kodi on Firestick or Fire TV will allow you to watch free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, Pay Per View events and more.
This page is continually updated and will always provide relevant guides with the most recent stable release of Kodi. As of today, Kodi 17.6 Krypton is the stable version and Kodi 18 Leia is currently in development.
Although Kodi 18 is still being worked on by the developers, you can still install the beta version on your Firestick or Fire TV if you would like to test it out.
I suggest using Kodi 17.6 Krypton on your primary streaming devices until Kodi 18 Leia is considered a stable release.
I have developed 5 different guides to install Kodi on Firestick and the Fire TV, which are outlined below.
In my opinion, the first method is the easiest since you don’t need a computer and it takes less than 2 minutes to complete.
The following methods work on all devices; 1st Generation Fire TV, 1st Generation Fire TV Stick, 2nd Generation Fire TV, 2nd Generation Fire TV Stick, Fire TV 3, and Fire TV Cube.

You may ask what is a Fire TV, Firestick, Fire TV Cube? A Fire TV device 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 or Fire TV Cube.
