MJD 0 Comments


Below is the easiest method for installing the Kodi application on your Firestick or Fire TV. No computer is required. The guide will show you how to install the latest, stable version or you can also choose to use the link for Kodi 18.9 if you don't want to switch up to 19 yet

It is becoming more and more important to protect yourself online. This can easily be done using a VPN that stops your internet provider from being able to see what you are accessing online. It also removes any blocks put in place by your internet provider. They are also great for using when you are using public unsecured Wi-Fi

I use and can recommend IPvanish. Use the link below to their website which will give you an extra discount.

I also have a guide for installing a VPN on Fire stick which you can find here

  • If you already have Downloader installed on your Firestick/FireTV you can skip past the installation of that app and just enter the necessary URL
  • Open Firestick/FireTV
  • Select Settings


  • In Settings scroll down and select My Fire TV


  • Select Developer Options


  • Select Apps from Unknown Sources


  • Select Turn On


  • Now go back to your Home Screen. Highlight Find and then select Search


  • (this is an update on May 15th 2021) In the next step you are asked to type in downloader to search for it. Today it was noticed that it no longer appeared for some when typing. If this is the case for you too then simply click and hold the Voice Search button on your Fire Remote and say "Downloader" and you will see it and can then install it.
  • Now use the keyboard and start typing Downloader. Once you see Downloader underneath select it


  • In the next screen select the Downloader icon


  • Select Download


  • Once downloaded select Open


  • Select Allow when asked to give Downloader access to files (necessary for it to install APKs)


  • Select OK once the app opens


  • You will now see the following screen. Select the URL section


  • Type ONE of the following and then click Go:

    • For Kodi 18.9 on 32 bit devices
    • For Kodi 18.9 on 64 bit devices

  • When the download completes you will see the following screen. Select Install


  • Installation will begin
  • When the installation completes select Done


  • Now select Delete


  • Select Delete again


  • Kodi is now installed and the installation file has been deleted to save room on your Fire device
