    The actual firestick is just an Android based device that you download an app called Kodi onto. Then in Kodi you download add ons that allow you to stream movies tv shows and live tv including sports. It even has all the netflix, hbo, and Showtime exclusive shows

    Yeah it has netflix and Hulu and shit on it but you don't use those, just the Kodi app. If you have an Android phone you can download Kodi on the app store and look up a how to vid on YouTube about installing add ons. And you'll be able to stream movies and tv shows from your phone

    quality is never really an issue, mostly it's the sound.

    I assume you're talking about the Exodus add-on? I'd say quality is definitely an issue if you are.

    yeah you might be behind on your update or something cause audio is the only issue im having. im binge watching rick n morty on there and it has crystal clear quality, same with some jamie fox movie i watched on easter recently.

    We just got one of these. Got Kodi on it and everything but can't stream shit for sports. Exodus works fine but the quality isn't HD. Is there a better add on than sportsdevil to stream live sports/tv?

    I prefer the fire TV over the fire stick. Runs PS Vue and Kodi a little smoother I feel. I have both in my house and I haven't timed it or anything but I just feels like the fire TV opens apps and reacts quicker when I launch Kodi, Netflix, Hulu, or Spotify.

    I have Chromecast and Amazon fire with Kodi...

    Shit is dope. Make sure internet game is on point tho. If you have slow internet it sucks.

    I saw the Canelo vs. Chavez Jr. Fight on Kodi and shit was fine. Saves me money.

    Sometime the links don't work, but you stealin shit so not always gonna be perfect.

    @Doodi @King of Kings firestick is coming this week. Loading Kodi seems pretty straighforward from what I've checked out. Any addon suggestions for when I load Kodi? Do you use VPN?

    I got my kodi from someone i know so everything was preloaded. i know that using exoudus for movies and tv show is easily the way to go. and sports devil if ur watching live sports. I dont personally use a VPN but i suggest to def do so to save your own ass as a just in case. and if your looking for a "health channel" then i suggest ultimatewhitecream.
