How to install Kodi on Fire TV or Fire Stick

This tutorial will give you step-by-step instructions for installing Kodi on your Fire TV or Fire Stick.  The Amazon Fire devices are some of the most popular devices for running Kodi.

Your IP is: Your Connection

Stop your ISP and your government from spying on your activity.  Use a VPN to protect your privacy.  A VPN is an essential tool when you are using any free or low-cost streaming application or service.  Especially if you are using a jailbroken Fire TV or Fire Stick or Android box.  ALWAYS use a VPN if you want the best streaming experience, the best selection of media and don't want your ISP to slow you down or shut you down.  I recommend IPVanish VPN for all my clients and I use it on all my devices.

A word of caution:  Allowing installation of third-party applications can be a risk, and Amazon clearly warns you of that risk.  However, our engineers here at Kodi America are not aware of any security threat to your network that could be carried out through your Fire Stick or Fire TV.  That does not mean the some apps don’t exist out there that are malicious.  Just use some good common sense and make sure you are installing apps that you trust.

Sometimes installing a third-party can cause the Fire TV or Fire Stick to malfunction.  While this is very rare, you can overcome this problem by doing a factory reset on your device and things will go back to normal.  You can then try again.  Maybe the install file was corrupted.  But, we rarely see these types of problems. 

  1. Now, go back to the Home screen on the Fire Device. 
  2. Go to the Search screen on the device and search for “Downloader”.
  3. Under Apps and Games you will see the Downloader app.  Select to install the app.
