How To Install Kodi On Fire TV Or Fire TV Stick

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

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.

I have developed 5 different guides to install Kodi on Fire TV or Firestick, 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, and Fire TV 3.

Kodi by itself doesn’t do much on the Fire TV/Firestick.  After you install Kodi with the guide below, you must then install addons that will provide access to thousands of movies, tv shows, live channels, sports, music and more.  I have created a Supercharge Kodi Guide that will show you how to install the best addons with the click of a button.

TROYPOINT suggests protecting yourself with a VPN when using Kodi to ensure that your Internet Service Provider and/or government isn’t logging your streaming activity.  Use the link below into install a VPN on your Fire TV or Firestick.

Install VPN On Fire TV or Fire TV Stick

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.

If you don’t currently own an Amazon Fire TV or 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.

    I used to use the kodi app and went thru all that hassle to download apks and add-ons etc and it can get very confusing trying to wade thru all those settings and preferences. I have totally dropped kodi I don’t even have it on my stick anymore. I use an app called terrarium TV which u download directly from the downloader app and it comes 100% set up ready to go and is immensely more simpler to use than kodi. It looks way more professional and actually is set up very similar to the home screen of the firestick/firetv menu. It has both movies and TV shows even ones airing that same day. Definitely suggest you guys to at least test it out and I guarantee you will prefer it over kodi and all of the pains in the asses that come with it lol thanks for listening!

    I changed my fire stick out with a new fire tv. Kodi and the add ons work fine on the stick still but I don’t get very many sorce results on the firetv and playback is spotty. Internet speed is fine ( over 200 ). I downloaded everything from you ( same as last time ) any clue?

      Don,

      Which add-on are you using? Placenta and Neptune Rising usually offer plenty of sources.

    Doesn’t work. In video 2 I tried the USA server 2, but was told it was an invalid zip url. Tried the other 2 servers, USA 1 and the euro server. These worked but had nothing usable. Tried the cell and that is also unusable. Not sure what to do now.

      Mark,

      Try resetting or restarting your device and see if that helps. Or if using a VPN, disabling while installing.

      If you are on any version of 17.3 or up and everything working fine, I wouldn’t mess with it.

    I installed Kodi per the instructions, but after installing kodi still does not load. I cleared the cache with no success, would appreciate any help you can give. I used downloader when installing on firestick.

    How long does it take to get the guide in my e mail ? I tried seding it twice and still nothing in my e mail after an hour.Thank you for any help.

    • Troy April 15, 2018 at 12:27 pm - Reply

      Judy, the emails were sent. Check your spam folder. Att.net isn’t a great email provider and often block my emails. If you have another email address, use that instead. I always suggest GMail as it is the best for receiving.

    Hi signed up to install kodi via your free supercharge link. Unable to get past the URL section to download file.
    Coming up with error “an unknown error has occurred. Check your URL and connection”. I have checked and verified both but still unable to get pass this step. Any suggestions

    When I click on video addons in kodi, underneath main menu I get a list of those addons instead of the icons, when I first install kodi, I got the icons but is now seeing the list, can I help me to correct that problem.

    Over the last year I have installed every program you have suggested to get Sports NBA Games,
    however, they will not work. And yes I also have VPN. Any suggestions ?
