Amazon Fire Stick is an excellent streaming service for people who are always on the move and want to take their entire entertainment experience every time they go to a new place. It features diverse content such as TV shows, movies, and documentaries of different genres. You have a lot available at your disposal, but you can spice up your life with infinite content by getting Kodi on Fire Stick.
Unfortunately, Amazon Fire Stick is currently more focused on targeting US users who have an Amazon Prime account. If you do not have one, you can only access a basic version of Amazon Fire Stick which offers very little content.
Meanwhile, Kodi is a great streaming media player that has an open-source code, allowing you to use an unlimited number of add-ons and access unlimited content within the Kodi media player app. Since Kodi is a third-party app, it cannot be installed on your Fire Stick unless you enable your device to allow downloads and installs from unknown sources – more on that later.
However, that is what people have been doing lately, and that is exactly what this article aims to explain, “How to use Amazon Fire Stick with Kodi”.
Unfortunately, Amazon TV Fire Stick is restricted to a few countries only such as the US, the UK, Germany, Australia, and Japan. Outside these countries, you cannot access Amazon Prime due to regional limitations.
Amazon Fire Stick restricts your access based on your region, so if you are located in any other region such as in France, Spain, or anywhere else in Asia, you will continue to face blockage and unavailability of services. To access the service outside the regions mentioned above, you will need to change your IP address, and the best way to do so is by using a VPN.
Installing Kodi on Fire Stick is extremely easy. If you have installed an app on your Amazon Fire Stick or Amazon Fire TV before, installing Kodi will be no issue for you. However, if you have not installed any app before, you can follow the instructions given below and easily navigate through the setup process:
Go the settings menu on your Amazon Fire Stick and click on Device
From the Device menu, navigate to Developer options. Look for the option that says “Apps from Unknown Sources” and ensure that it is enabled.
There are many great downloader apps available for free downloads. You can pick one for which you find better reviews and usability.
Once you have downloaded the Downloader on your Amazon Fire Stick, proceed with installing Kodi. Launch your downloader and enter the following URL for directing the downloader to the Kodi setup file.
Installing add-ons on Kodi is simple. You just need to be sure about the right add-on that you need. This is because there are thousands of video add-ons available for free downloads, and each one of them offers diverse content. To learn more about how to install video add-ons to watch Kodi on Fire Stick.
Kodi has been at the center of heated debates between content producers and distributors lately. Many claim that Kodi makes content piracy easy, and hence it should be banned. Consequently, many countries have regulated Kodi’s use in their demographics, often slapping Kodi users with hefty fines.
That’s not the only downside to using Kodi without a VPN. Most Kodi add-ons available online are open source. Therefore, the authenticity and transparency of these add-ons can never be guaranteed. In the past, many Kodi add-ons have been reported to be stealing confidential user data without their consent or knowledge.
To keep your data safe online, and remain safe from fines imposed by your government for using Kodi, use a premium VPN such as PureVPN. Upon connection, your real IP address, which has your location information, gets masked and replaced by a new pseudo IP address. This gives you a new online identity, enabling you to evade all restrictions and access your favorite content on Kodi with complete peace of mind.
Here is how you can install PureVPN on Amazon Fire Stick,
Once you have successfully installed PureVPN, you will be able to access all Amazon services, which were previously blocked in your region. Setting up and watching Kodi on Fire Stick is as easy as it gets.
