Kodi on Firestick or Fire TV will allow you to watch free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, and more.

Kodi is listed as one of the Best APK’s by TROYPOINT.

Because Kodi is not available in the Amazon App Store, we must side-load it onto our device. This side-loading process is also used to Jailbreak a Firestick or Fire TV which will allow you to stream free Movies, TV Shows, Sports, 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 18.9 Leia is the stable version.

I have developed three 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.

TROYPOINT IPVanish 73% Off

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 Stick 4K, Fire TV 3, Fire TV Cube, and Fire TV Televisions.

If you prefer a screenshot tutorial, you may find that below the video tutorial.

IMPORTANT: The Amazon App Store puts restrictions on unverified apps that you can side-load or install anything into your device without using the official app-distribution method. It is recommended to use a VPN to install such apps. Click this link to learn how to install a VPN for Firestick, Fire TV, Fire TV Cube.

Warning! Protect Yourself With A VPN

Most cord-cutters use a VPN and rightfully so.

The free streaming applications, addons, and paid IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.

Without a VPN, your IP Address is being logged.

Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.

Your current identifying IP Address is – When you use a VPN, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.

A VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet.

This will prevent your Internet Service Provider, app/addon developers, government agencies, and any 3rd party from logging what you’re accessing online.

The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is IPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy.

Its important to use a VPN that is fast since we are streaming large HD files.  Its also crucial to find one that keeps no logs of what their subscribers access while online.

Setting up IPVanish VPN on your streaming device is simple!
