Cord cutting is on an all-time high, and there are many popular streaming services that have replaced traditional cable network. If you’re also planning to join the bandwagon of cord cutters and want to watch live TV and prime channels, there is no better way to do it than using the Amazon Fire TV or Amazon Fire TV Stick.
However, most apps require a subscription if you want to enjoy premium content. If you want to watch live tv for free and enjoy a great collection of movies and tv shows, you can install Kodi on firestick.
How To Install Kodi On Fire Stick?
1. Go to Device/My Fire TV option
2. Enable apps from unknown sources
Select Developer options and enable ‘Apps from unknown source’ option as well as “Enable ADB connections over the network” to install Kodi on Firestick.

Go to Kodi.tv, Kodi’s official website by typing in “http://www.kodi.tv/download” in the URL section of the Downloader app and choose Kodi Android app from there.
Amazon Fire Stick runs on Android-based OS, therefore, you can sideload Android apps on it. Choose the Kodi Android app’s 32-bit version – ARMV7A (32BIT).
