How To Install Kodi 20.1 On Firestick & Fire TV

This in-depth guide will show you how to install Kodi on Firestick quickly.  The same process will also work for the Fire TV Cube, Fire TV, and Fire TV Televisions. We Find IPTV recommends using the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max due to its low price yet powerful system. Kodi is one of the most popular apps to install on a Fire TV Stick due to its numerous free addons and Builds.  The addons and builds provide endless free entertainment with movies, TV shows, music, and games.  More on the addons and builds after we get Kodi installed.
