Amazon Fire Stick with preloaded Kodi

Edited by:"gsj87"Found 18th Dec 2017
Hi all, I was about to purchase the regular Amazon Firestick off Amazon for £30 when a friend mentioned that you can buy 'preloaded' Firesticks of eBay with Kodi on it, giving you access to movies, sports etc.

Example - ebay.co.uk/itm…XuN

Are these safe to use? Are they just plug and play and do you have to keep updating them? Does it also still use the same Amazon interface?

Youtube it all mate

Its so easy to put kodi on yourself. Buy the f/s then go to YouTube and search how to install no limits build kodi and just follow the tutorial video

I don't think Kodi is illegal, isn't it the programs you download within Kodi that make it illegal if using it for paid for sports / movies / cinema etc? I'm sure you can watch internatonal channels for free legally right (again free channel's eqv. Of our freeview)

Kodi be dead in a few months
Already crumbling

They just are kodi as a stand alone is not illegal it used to be what powered the original Xbox it was called XBMC back then how ever it is illegal to fullyload one to watch sports movies tv and sell it on. By the way it's dead easy to fully load one. I only wanted to make you aware of the legal side of it that's not to say I don't have one

Kodi is not illegal and it is legal to sell sticks with kodi installed.

What you can’t do is sell sticks with the dodgy kodi add-ins installed that provide illegal access to films/tv. This is how most people are getting around the issue. As other posters have said it’s easy enough to install yourself and there are instructions and videos all over the internet but bear in mind what your intending to do is illegal and may be shut down at any time.

This has been suggested for many months now but it's still going. Even if it goes there have never been so many alternatives.

I'd also like to add it's not all it's cooked up to be most new realise films are like the days when you bought a dodgy copy DVD meaning crap picture which kind of defeats the point in a world with 1080p and UHD sports has all but gone now and most of the time you'll waste endless hours searching for things to watch and not actually watching much. I don't think iv watched mine for ages using the kodi app much prefer Amazon tv now tv and Netflix.

It's only poor quality if you watch CAM versions. Generally good HD copies are only available after the DVDs have been released somewhere in the world. For example an excellent HD copy of Dunkirk is now availabkle.

Yes that's why I said new realise films

DON'T pay someone to do anything involving Kodi.. dont use illegal add ons but no matter what don't pay anyone BECAUSE the money they make is likely to go.towards other crimes maybe towards terrorism or dangerous counterfeits

Main issue with these preloaded devices is that they can be setup to remotely access your network.

Fire stick now isn't so good i use Netflix and it kept crashing and Amazon refused to replace it...underpowered garbage
Amazon products on the surface look good but really they'e cheap made

It' really sad that Kodi wasn' used properly for legal streaming. In the UK we should be able to watch all American TV and Canadian TV AND sports for free....but don' know how to access legally using legal streams I think it' all bundled together in the illegal pirate add ns

Kodi when I learned about it i thought it' the best thing but I realised it' copyright theft 99/100 and that Kodi should really be helping people find LEGAL streams more than just the few which come bundled

Just get a good iptv

I don't think the Kodi developers have any interest in supporting theft of service. It's up to the end user to install legally linked addons from the official repository. The official builds come with a limited anount of addons.

If you buy preloaded devices then you're pretty much supporting theft of service and shouldn't blame the developers who are 100% against this. I think most TV rights only apply to the countries they are broadcast in so you don't necessary have the right to watch a broadcast that is free in the US.

Kodi is an awesome media player but most people now associate it with stealing which is a bit like buying a lock pick and then blaming the manufacturer because you robbed your neighbours

You COMPLETELY didn't understand my comment and said that trying to make me look bad

As soon as you install Kodi it has LEGAL Add ons..don' need the diatribe

no vpn, just BT ISP that seems quite lax on these addons (at the moment )

What would you guys recommend as a good media streamer then please? Was looking at a fire stick recently, but then considering a roku express media streamer that was recently posted on here. Any advice gratefully received, I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to this sort of tech, thanks
