The Firestick has taken over the streaming world. The device has been selling like proverbial hotcakes since entering the scene.
Firestick is so popular because it makes it so easy to use entertainment services due to it having such a variety of services.
You can control the device directly with voice commands without the need to push a button. As impressive as the Firestick is, there’s one drawback; while you can watch plenty of content for free, the premium content comes with a premium price tag.
Not everyone wants to pay that much – or can – so they install Kodi on Firestick instead.
Kodi is an excellent Firestick app that is sure to open a whole new world of multimedia content that is either unavailable in your region or too expensive.
What Is Kodi?
Kodi is an open-source media player anyone can download and use for free. When you think of media players, you think of things such as VLC.
These players can only play content from your local storage/hard drive. While Kodi can also playthings from local storage, it also lets you stream online content.
Kodi gives you free access to a wealth of great content. You’ll get access to movies, TV shows, live sport, and so much more. Kodi on Firestick lets you enjoy all that straight through your TV.
