How to Install Kodi on Firestick & Fire TV in 30 Seconds (Kodi 19.4 & 18.9)

Kodi on Firestick

This step-by-step tutorial will show you How to Install Kodi on Firestick, 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, and more.

This is through the various 3rd party add-ons and builds that can be easily accessed after Kodi is installed on your Firestick or Fire TV device.

Kodi is listed as one of the Best APK’s and Best Firestick Apps 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 called jailbreaking a firestick which will allow you to stream free Movies, TV Shows, Sports, PPV, Adult content, 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 19.4 Matrix is the stable version.

I have developed four 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.


BE CAREFUL...

Your online activity is actively tracked by your Internet Service Provider, app/addon devs, and government through your identifying IP address.

Stream anonymously by using IPVanish VPN.

IPVanish will encrypt your connection to the Internet and mask your IP address so you will remain anonymous.

Warning! Protect Yourself With IPVanish VPN

Most cord-cutters use a IPVanish VPN and rightfully so.

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

Without a IPVanish, 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 44.200.25.51

When you use IPVanish, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.

IPVanish 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.

It’s 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!

Step 1 Register for an IPVanish VPN account by clicking the link below.

Step 6 – Click Download.

Step 7 – Once the IPVanish app installs, click Open.

Once the IPVanish app installs, click Open.

Step 8 – Enter your IPVanish account information and click Log In.

You will get your username and password when you register for an account.

Enter your IPVanish account information and click Log In.

Step 9 – Click Connect.

Click Connect.

Step 10 – Click OK.

Click OK.

Step 11 – Success! Your identifying IP Address has changed and you are now anonymous.

New IP Address

Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.

Congratulations! You are now protected by IPVanish which means everything that you stream or access through your Firestick or Android TV Box is hidden from the rest of the world.

If you ever need to stop the VPN service, simply re-launch the application and click the DISCONNECT button.

You can now setup IPVanish VPN on all of your other Internet-connected devices. You can use IPVanish on unlimited devices!

  1. Wm Austin Kendall

    Troy, would someone please publish me an address or a URL to install Kodi 18.9. Troypoint.com/18 wont do it in 30 seconds or 30 days. No Limits Magic is the best build but is not compatible with 19 yet. Rapid Installer only installs 19. Downloader use to be so simple but now takes you to installations that you just can’t rap your head around.. AK

  2. I am sorry for (what most likely) is a really stupid question; but I am so technologically disadvantaged it’s not funny! Anyways; using Kodi 18.9 on fire stick(s) with No Limits Build and I cannot get anything to stream at all. I have disabled Venom because that was what kept coming up every time I tried anything but I can’t get anything to work. Such as The Crew; Uranus; Elysium. Neptune Rising; Rising Tides; etc, etc.
    Clearly I am missing something! Please help. (As Michael Scott said;) “please explain to me like I’m 5”?!
    Thank you!

  3. Its added it but there is no content. I select movie, TV, it says your library is empty or no PVR is set up?

    Thank you for the direction to add Kodi to my Firestick.

  4. I am tryi8ng to enter an add source but keyboard to add file source does not have a colon- ONLY a semi colon!! ???
    What to do?
    Thanks

  5. Why is it that everytime I put Kodi on my 4k Firestick, Kodi refuses to open after about half a day or so. This has happened on Kodi 19.4 and on Kodi 19.3. I will try to install and older version later today. Everything works on it when I first install it, but when I go back later the app doesn’t open. Please help me.

    1. I have the same problem with kodi. I have uninstalled it and reinstalled several times. If I don’t open it for a day, then I have to reinstall.

  6. Hi Troy,
    I have installed Seren and Trakt recently on my firestick 4K through Kodi Matrix 19.4 and enabled real debrid on the setting without having premium account, when I’ve tried to watch TV shows a text has been popped up saying “Error: No Debrid accounts were identified. Please setup your accounts in the settings menue before attempting to play an item”. Please let me know what should I do to fix this error. Thank you again for your assistance in advance.

  7. I updated to the new version of Kodi because I was having problems with playing Network movies prior. Now with the update I keep getting a “Playback Failed” “One or more items failed to play. Check the log for more information about this message”. Any suggestions? I have even uninstalled and re-installed Kodi.

    1. I have the same issue here. Almost none of the selections work, even in The Crew app. I get the same message as you. Hopefully there’s a fix for this.

  8. So I already have cinema but lately almost all movies have 10, 20, sometimes even almost 30 links that are all the wrong movies. I wish we could report bad links to get them removed. It would be alot easier to manage thru things. Id like another movie app, something similar to cinema.. I used to like popcorn time so something similar to those apps. I just finished redownloading kodi but I never know how to find good add ons.. anyway ill keep browsing and see if I can find something. Thanks for all of your time and work put into these instructions. Kodi is rather confusing to me and I prefer the interface and simplicity of cinema. Thanks again!

    1. I too wish we could report incorrect links on cinema. There definitely needs to be more user feedback and interaction with the app.

      1. Hello Marvin,
        Wrong links on cinemahd is a common problem, my suggestion would be to get a real debrid or switch to something els entirely. My personal recommendation is the following:
        Kodi, stremio syncler.

  9. Hey Troy… I enjoy your tutorials. I have downloaded Kodi and working on the addon’s when I get the info from you.
    How do I get my local channels? I want to watch my local news, weather, etc. Please advise how to “tap into those” @ no cost.

    Thanks!

  10. Help! Is it me or are the Kodi Builds fading away? It is difficult to find good trustworthy
    downloads on you tube. Does anyone have a suggestion?

  11. I keep getting “chain validation failed” when downloading the Kodi Matrix with Unlinked. In addition, the interface does not look like what shows here in this tutorial.
