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.

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, PPV, 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 18.5 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.

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.

Protect Yourself While Streaming IMPORTANT NOTE FROM TROY

TROYPOINT does not verify the legality or security of any application or service covered on this website.

I personally use IPVanish VPN when accessing free movies, TV shows, and live streams through Kodi.

Here are the reasons why I use a VPN.
  • I don’t trust the developers of these add-ons and apps that provide this free content. A VPN encrypts my traffic so these developers can’t store my activity logs and then use them against me in the future.
  • My Internet Service Provider (ISP) can no longer sell my logs/history or hand them over to third parties such as government, watchdog groups, etc.
  • I can now Access Kodi add-ons, apps,and streams that my ISP has blocked.
  • My ISP can’t throttle my download speed when using these free addons or applications because they don’t know what I’m accessing when I'm connecting through my VPN.
A VPN will encrypt your connection to the Internet, mask your IP address, and provide you with the security and privacy that you deserve.

I recommend IPVanish VPN due to their blazing fast speeds and zero-log policy.

Protect Yourself With A VPN When Using This Technology

Most cord-cutters use a VPN to hide their Internet activity while streaming movies, TV shows, and live channels.

If you aren’t using a VPN when accessing free or low-cost media, your Internet Service Provider, government, hackers, and app developers can log everything that you do 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!
