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.

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, Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Stick Lite, and Fire TV Televisions.

You will find both a video tutorial and a screenshot guide below.

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 2607:f8b0:4001:c37::fc

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.

This exclusive link provides you with a hefty discount.

Step 2 – From the home screen hover over Find.

For those of you using Android TV devices, you can easily install the IPVanish app directly through Google Play Store.

Step 3 – Scroll down and click Search.

Step 4 – Type in “Ipvanish” and click the first option.

Step 5 – Click the IPVanish VPN app.

Step 6 – Click Download.

Step 7 – 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.

Step 9 – Click Connect.

Step 10 – Click OK.

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

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!
