Amazon Fire Tablets are perfect for the people who live in the Amazon ecosystem. Powered by Fire OS (Android-based OS), they are affordable for basic usage and media consumption. With the inbuilt Amazon store, users can install some of the popular applications like Netflix, Facebook, Amazon Prime, BBC iPlayer and more. Some of the popular applications like Kodi, Showbox, Popcorn Time and more officially restricted in the Amazon App store. Since they’re powered by Android-based OS, users can install those unsupported applications by modifying a few settings in inbuilt settings. In this article, we will show you the step-by-step instructions to download Kodi on Amazon Fire Tablets.
Kodi is a popular media centre used to watch various media like movies, TV shows, audio, documentaries, anime, cartoons and more. Due to its open-source nature, you can stream all kind right from your place. With the help of addons, users can access various media from different sources. By installing Kodi on your Fire Tablet, you will have the convenience of watching/streaming your favourite media anytime anywhere.
ATTENTION: Before using Kodi, users must remember the fact that your IP and online activities are visible to the ISPs and Government while using Kodi. If you stream copyrighted content through Kodi, you will end up facing some serious legal issues. To avoid this, you must use a trusted VPN service to mask your internet activities from the ISPs, hackers, Government and many more. On the other hand, VPN also helps you to access geo-restricted media with ease. We recommend our users to purchase and use NordVPN on their device.
