    need help with Kodi on Amazon Fire tv stick

    Hi there I have successfully put Kodi onto my fire stick however I am struggling with getting anything to play. I have fusion as an add on and I have installed Genesis but I can't get anything to play? Any help would be much appreciated!

    A lot of broadband companies now block the streams. I think Kodi is pretty useless now, unless you have a VPN. I recently went to Poland & took my MacBook loads of streams all in HD & work. Come home & mainly SD streams & not much works!

    Yeah I agree. with sky and lots blocked

    Sky blocks it with their smart setup in the router settings. My mates on sky and his works perfectly. Install addon installer to pre load channels then add zeus. Add Zeus after addon installer because it removes everything first. I'm with talk talk and use it almost every night.

    Thanks for the reply, just followed all the steps and its come up with a message saying 'this unit is not receiving data from the Zeus server'. Not sure what that means any help would be great

    I have two fire sticks and a fire tv box and they work fine (bt internet)
    you have to remember that all streams and all addons etc dont always work

    I find genesis, uk turks and dexter tv to work best but it changes all the time

    just follow the above link from richje100 and that should get you started

    Because Kodi is primarily a media centre software (like Plex) and it works brilliantly on Amazon Fire TV stick.

    Used to used Dexter TV too but they changed to premium subscription now

    Get private internet access it costs about £2.50 per month and will unlock any blocked addons. Its easy to setup and you can run about 5 devices off one account i think.

    Football streams are a bit hit n miss but that seems to be the same for everybody as for tv shows and movies i have no probs. Google Private Internet Access takes 2 minutes to set up through paypal and you are sorted for a year.

    Dont say that i liked dexter and had only watched it not to long ago

    It's asking for subscription but not used it for like a month or so , maybe changed now?

    Dexter is crap now, they have that many members the severs can't handle the traffic .

    The only way is a private iptv server .

    We need to go back to basics here, what broadband provider are you with add there's almost certainly a setting in the router that needs changing to help kodi work properly.
