How to install Kodi on the Amazon Fire TV Stick: 3 BEST ways to download Kodi on your Fire Stick

Here are three easy ways to install Kodi on the Amazon Fire TV Stick


Kodi is great for accessing your media files on a local network but the real draw is add-ons that give you access to a vast array of streamed content. There’s a lot of add-ons that are officially supported by Kodi but to get more you’ll need to add a new “repository” such as SuperRepo, we’ll show you how.

1. Launch Kodi on your Amazon Fire Stick by either double-tapping Home (if you followed our example above) or by heading to Settings | Applications | Manage Installed Applications.

In Kodi use the directional control on your remote to head right to System and then select File Manager from the menu below. Select Add source from the menu on the left. Select the box with <None> written in it and type in using the onscreen keyboard and select Done. Enter a name in the bottom box that you’ll remember, we simply went with SRP. Click OK.

2. Hit back until you’re back on the main menu and then go to System, Settings and choose Add-ons. Click through the advice on side tabbed windows, choose Install from zip file and SRP (or whatever you called it).

3. Select the version of Kodi you’re using, probably Isengard at the time of writing, you should have noted this down earlier when you downloaded Kodi. Then Select All and the file in that folder, starting superrepo. If you go wrong, select the dots at the top to navigate back.

You’ll then see pop-ups appear showing Kodi downloading and installing the add-on. Hit the back button until you get to the main menu. You can now get extra add-ons by selecting the appropriate section and choosing add-ons.

4. For example, go to Video, select Add-ons, select Get More. A list of add-ons will appear that includes all the new add-ons from SuperRepo. Select one and then select Install, hit back to the main menu, select Video, then Add-ons and then you can select it to access the content. Each add-on has its own file system and you’ll need to dig around in the folders to find what you want.

Please note that many add-ons contain content that isn’t officially licensed and accessing such content could be illegal. In short, if the content is free, but looks too good to be true, then it probably is. And remember if you don’t have your Amazon Fire TV Stick yet, please support us buying the Fire TV Stick for £35 on Amazon.
