How To Install Kodi On A FireStick

If you are like me and love watching Movies, TV shows and Sport then you have to install Kodi on your Amazon Fire TV Stick.

Kodi is an open source media player that was formally known as XBMC that is capable of streaming media in several ways such as from a local HDD or over the Internet.

Over the last few years it has been best known as a software for streaming media such as Films, TV Shows and Sport from the internet to your TV via a device such as the Fire TV Stick.
