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. This guide also works great for the new 4K Firestick. Because Kodi is not available in the Amazon App Store, we must side load it onto our device.

What is Kodi?

A free, open source piece of media centre software that can run on anything from your Android phone, Firestick, Andoid TV Box and even your home PC, and plenty of other devices in between. It began life as XBMP – Xbox Media Player – in 2002, before evolving into the better known XBMC, or Xbox Media Centre, released in 2004.

Kodi 18.3 on firestick

Designed as a way to control all your digital media from a central hub in the home, it originally ran on the first Xbox – albeit only if you had a modchip installed or hacked the console, as the independently-written program wasn’t authorised by Microsoft. A huge hit in the modder community, it’s been expanded on by numerous coders but is largely overseen by the XBMC Foundation.
