Foreword: Tempest Kodi Addon

In this guide, you’ll get to know everything you need to install the Tempest Kodi addon on your Amazon Fire TV Stick. We’ve included high-quality images to help you understand each step.

Tempest, a widely known Kodi addon that lets you stream movies and TV shows, boasts a vast collection of video content – both new and old. Its developers make sure to keep its library up to date, meaning you’ll keep getting the latest releases.

One of the best things about Tempest is that it provides multiple streams for the requested video, almost all of which work all the time. That means you won’t have to try out numerous streams before landing on one that is working.

How to Install Tempest Kodi addon on Firestick

The installation process could be divided into two steps. These include:

  • Step 1: Tweaking Kodi’s settings to allow 3rd-party addons installation

Let’s discuss both these steps in detail.

Step 1: Tweaking Kodi's settings to allow 3rd-party addons installation

This step is necessary because Tempest is a 3rd-party addon. It isn’t available on the Kodi repository. Since Kodi’s settings by default don’t permit the installation of addons from third-party sources, you’d have to tweak the settings. Only then you could install Tempest.

Follow these steps to tweak Kodi’s settings to allow Tempest installation:

  1. Open the Kodi app and click on Settings.
    Kodi Settings button is indicated by a large cog button at the top of the left navigation menu on Home Page
  2. Right-click on the System option.

    Under Settings/System category, choosing Add-ons shows Unknown sources with an on-off slider button
  5. When you do this, a disclaimer will appear on your screen. To proceed, click Yes.
