Amazon Fire TV is widely regarded as one of the most convenient and comfortable ways to access popular streaming services like Amazon Prime and Netflix. It is an online streaming device that you can connect to your Wi-Fi and plug into your TV’s HDMI port. With Amazon Fire TV, you can choose from either the Fire TV Stick or the more expensive Fire TV Box. Both of these devices can stream content in 1080p HD, but if you prefer a more powerful streaming device, you will be better off with the Fire TV Box.
When you buy an Amazon Fire TV, you only buy the means to stream content from online platforms. Out of the box, you don’t have access to any content and you have to subscribe to one of these on-demand streaming services first. Even when you subscribed to these paid streaming services, chances are that you will be streaming the same quality and quantity content as you get with cable TV, but at a much more affordable price per month or per year.
The problem that many people have is that in order to access a wide range of content, they have to subscribe to more than one paid online streaming service. This is not always cost-effective seeing that it can lead to an overlapping of content. So, they stick with one subscription and limited content libraries.
Kodi as a Solution
As an online media platform, Kodi provides Amazon Fire TV users with a two-fold solution. Firstly, installing and streaming from add-ons that are compatible with Kodi is free. Secondly, these add-ons contain vast content libraries that can give users unlimited access to media content from around the world.
In itself, Kodi is only the host to these add-ons. The true value of this form of online streaming lies in the user interfaces and content libraries that you get with these add-ons. Most of these add-ons are developed with Kodi as a media center in mind which means that you can expect the add-ons to be tightly integrated with Kodi, which is similar to Amazon Fire TV as online streaming device and Amazon Prime as on-demand streaming service.
Adding Kodi to your Amazon Fire TV is also relatively simple. There are various online tutorial and instructions available that can show you how to install it. Installation of the add-ons is also something that anyone with the ability to follow simple instructions would be able to do.
There are many different add-ons available that you can install for quality content streaming. Before installing an add-on, make sure that you do a little research so you install one that meets your needs. Each add-on has their own unique way of categorizing content which usually includes movies, tv shows. These titles are usually categorized according to genre, cast, year of release, or popularity.
Install a VPN
In order to ensure that the date that you send and receive is encrypted and also to give you access to restricted or geo-locked content, it is important to install a VPN. Just like Kodi and the add-ons, installing a VPN is a relatively straightforward process. It is important to use a VPN to ensure that you have online animosity and that your connection is secure.
Should You Add Kodi to Fire TV?
Adding Kodi to your Fire TV and using it is completely legal. When you have a VPN installed, it is also completely safe. Since adding Kodi and installing add-ons is quick and simple, and because you gain access to a wide range of content, it makes sense to add Kodi to your Fire TV.
