What is a Firestick?
Before we dive into the details, let’s first understand what a Firestick is. A Firestick is a streaming device that connects to your TV’s HDMI port and allows you to access various streaming services, including Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video. It also gives you access to free cable channels and content.

Step 3: Install Kodi
Kodi is a free and open-source media player software that allows you to access a wide range of content, including free cable channels. To install Kodi, go to the Amazon Appstore and search for “Kodi.” Once you’ve found it, click on “Download” to install it on your Firestick.
Step 4: Install Add-ons
Once you’ve installed Kodi, you’ll need to install add-ons that offer free cable channels. Some of the popular add-ons include Exodus Redux, The Magic Dragon, and Venom.
