In this article, I will explain how to install the 4K addon on Kodi. The instruction in this article will work the same for all Amazon devices, including FireStick 4K, Fire TV, FireStick Lite, and Fire TV Cube. But first, here’s a quick overview of the 4K Kodi addon.
What is 4K Addon?
4K is a Kodi addon that lets you watch movies, shows, documentaries, docuseries, videos for kids, family movies, and many more in 4K resolution.
Gone are the days when 4K streaming used to be a luxury. Now 4K TVs are affordable and everywhere. Finding good 4K content is still tricky, but once you know where to look, plenty of content is available.
Worry not! We have a solution, particularly if you are a cable cutter. With the increasing popularity of 4K contents (TV Shows and movies), third-party Kodi developers have been churning out addons that support 4K streaming features. One such addon is the 4K Kodi addon from Narcacist Repository.
The 4K Kodi addon supports Trakt integration. It also supports Debrid services, including Real Debrid, All Debrid, and Premiumize. With this addon, you can stream dedicated 4K movies and TV shows without hassle. It is compatible with both Kodi 20 Nexus and Kodi 19 Matrix.
You will also find the 4K addon on our list of best addons for Kodi.
Attention, Kodi Users!
Kodi Addons and builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free movies, TV shows, or sports. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect to a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
I personally use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3 months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.

Is 4K Safe and Legal?
I scanned the zip file of the Narcacist Repository (from where you install the addon) with Virus Total (a web-based antivirus). The antivirus did not raise any alarms. Here is the screenshot of the scan result:
Regarding the legal status of the 4K addon, we at FireStickTricks.com cannot say anything conclusively. The 4K addon procures video streaming links from many unverified providers. Likely, these providers have not obtained licenses from the copyright holders.
I recommend watching movies or shows in the public domain. In addition, use ExpressVPN with the 4K addon to hide all your streaming activities from the authorities.

This is how you install the 4K Kodi addon.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN app and Sign in using the email ID and password that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription.

4K Kodi addon overview
Go back to the Kodi homepage and select Add-ons. 4K should appear under Video add-ons.
Upon launching the 4K Kodi addon, you will be taken to the main menu, which consists of the following:
- Main Section
- Movies by year
- Movies Alphabetically
- Movies Boxsets
- Movies Genres
- Kids Movies
- TV Shows
Under the Main Section folder, you can access thousands of 4K contents, be it movies or TV Shows by category. There are separate folders for classic, Horror, Kids, Sci-Fi, and War movies.
Then there is a Movies by Year section. As you can guess, the 4K movies are arranged based on the year they got released. However, the 4K Kodi addon consists of collections from 2014 to 2021. The addon also lets you search movies based on alphabetical order, genres, and boxsets.
The 4K Kodi addon has a dedicated folder for kids’ content, encompassing cartoons, 3D movies, and anime. I must say the collections here are amazing.
The 4K Kodi addon lets you integrate with Trakt, but you need to authenticate it before.
