That’s why we have created this guide. We’ll provide you with a step-by-step guide on installing the 4K Kodi addon. Apart from supporting 4K streaming features, this Kodi addon also supports services like Real Debrid, Premiumize, and All Debrid.
What’s more, the 4K addon is also compatible with Trakt Integration. You can thus count on it to help you stream 4K movies, TV shows, and drama series without a care in the world. Read on to know how to install and use the 4K Kodi addon on your Fire TV Stick.
You can easily download and install the Kodi application from the Downloader app on your Firestick. If you don’t have this application, download it from the store (Search for Downloader in the search bar).
After installing the Downloader app, open it and type the Kodi app URL to download it onto your Android TV or Firestick. Remember to turn on the Unknown Sources option from your settings to allow the Downloader app to download the Kodi app.
Once you’ve managed to install Kodi and its 4K addon, you will see multiple options (such as Main Section, Movies by Year, Movies Genres, Settings, among others) on the home screen. Use these options to find and stream your favorite piece of content.
Select the System option.
A list of options will appear. Enable Unknown sources (as shown in the screenshot)
Kodi 4K addon can now download apps from unknown sources. By default, this option is turned off due to security issues.
Next, enter a name for the file source and click Ok.
A few minutes later, you’ll see a confirmation pop-up telling you that the addon has been installed. Wait for this pop-up (it may take longer to appear).
After the pop-up has appeared, go to the homepage and select the addons option.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed the 4K addon.
Kodi applications or their addons do not offer you a safe streaming experience. Whatever you search, stream or browse is visible to your ISP and the government. That might not be a problem unless you are using Kodi to stream copyrighted content.
However, if you’re caught streaming copyrighted content, you might end up getting slapped with a fine, some jail time, or both. That’s why we recommend you use a reliable VPN, like ExpressVPN, while using Kodi to stream your favorite shows.
ExpressVPN hides your activity on the internet, making sure that neither your government nor your ISP can track your online behavior. This way, you become a virtual ghost, shielded from the reach of the authorities and anyone else who may take an interest in your streaming activities.
Follow these steps to download, install and use Express VPN on your Firestick:
Many people are fond of the Real Debrid service. This service provides its users with HD links of premium movies and shows that aren’t available elsewhere. Real Debrid provides you with links from up to 56 host sites. And that, too, without costing you a penny.
As a result, now that you have the Kodi 4K addon, it’s recommended that you double your fun by integrating the Real Debrid service with it. Doing so is extremely easy. All you have to do is connect both the services from your Kodi homepage and have unlimited fun.
Follow these steps to use Real Debrid with your 4K Kodi addon:
A pop-up will appear asking you for further authorization.
Note down this code.
Trakt might be another exciting addition to your streaming experience. This app keeps track of whatever you watch before making content recommendations based on your watching history, likes, dislikes, etc. You can think of it as Netflix for recommendations.
Follow these steps to use Trakt with your 4K Kodi addon:
An Authenticate Trakt dialogue box will appear, asking you to confirm your selection again. Select Yes.
Real Debrid and Trakt have the potential to revolutionize your 4K streaming experience. The former will let you watch your favorite movies, drama series and TV shows. The latter, meanwhile, will make recommendations based on your browsing history, likes, dislikes, etc. What more can you ask for!
