Today, I am going to show you how you can install the famous Cloud 9 Kodi addon. Whether you are using Kodi on your FireStick, PC, or Android TV box, this guide will tell you everything you need.
First, I’ll introduce the mighty Cloud 9 addon.
What’s the Cloud 9 Kodi Addon?
Cloud 9 is a sports addon. It’s created by the DejaVu repository to help people watch their favorite sports channels for free. From live football matches to WWE replays and racing channels, Cloud 9 streams it all.
You’ll find a massive collection of live TV channels (primarily sports channels) on Cloud 9. The addon will let you stream live football games in HD+ resolution.
Cloud 9 Kodi addon is divided into eight sections: US Sports Channels, UK Sports Channels, World Channels, Live Footy/Soccer, Live EPL, Fight Sports, Racing Channels, and WWE/AEW/UFC Replays. Jump into your favorite section and start watching!
The addon is backed by efficient and low-volume streaming links for live TV so you can enjoy a buffer-free experience.
Now that we know the perks of the Cloud 9 addon, let’s see how you can install it.
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 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.

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.

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.
