An easy-to-follow guide

Kodi is a powerful media center software that enables users to access virtually any type of content such as movies and music from any supported device. It offers convenient ways for streaming and storing content and is compatible with pretty much any major operating system. You can even use Kodi on a Fire TV from Amazon after going through a basic installation process.

There are so many things you can do with Kodi as it has the potential to revolutionize your home entertainment. It can help you organize your movie collection, enables the addition of extra plugins to expand the available features and you can even record live TV. Kodi can be considered a reliable television replacement as it’s created to enhance your home theater experience.

While Kodi can be quickly installed on your PC, when it comes to streaming boxes or sticks, it’s a little bit more complicated. The good news is that you won’t have to root your device and it only takes a few minutes of your time. Without any further introductions let’s jump straight into the guide for installing Kodi on Amazon Fire TV.

1. Enable apps from unknown sources

  • This is the first step required to be able to install Kodi. Before we go on, it’s important to mention that Amazon warns about allowing third-party apps on your Fire TV as there are some security risks involved. You need to be aware of this fact because Fire TVs are just as susceptible to malware infections as other devices.
  • If you think it’s worth moving on, all you need to do is follow the path Settings>Developer options>Enable Apps from Unknown Sources.

2. Get the Downloader app

  • The quickest way to install Kodi is to download a free app from the Amazon Appstore such as the Downloader app.

3. Insert the link to download Kodi

In the Downloader app, you need to enter the following URL:

4. Choose the Android app

  • As the operating system used in your Fire TV is just a modified version of Android, Kodi will work without problems if you choose Android in the screen that follows.

5. Select the 32-bit installation

  • Although 64-bit can work too, the 32-bit installation seems to work better in most cases so that should be your first option.

6. Click Install

  • Now Kodi will be installed on your Amazon Fire TV and that’s pretty much done. Next, you might want to customize certain settings for the best Kodi experience.
  • One thing worth mentioning is that you’ve got a USB storage port for the Fire TV whereas the Fire Stick requires a remote media server.
