This guide will show you how to install the Fetch Kodi Addon on FireStick. Fetch addon also works on all other Kodi-compatible devices, such as Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, Raspberry Pi, Android TV, and more.
What is Fetch Kodi Addon?
Fetch is a live TV streaming addon. This addon lines up channels from around the world, including the USA, Canada, the UK, and more. Fetch addon offers channels in various categories. Some popular categories are Animation, Comedy, Classics, Lifestyle, Entertainment, News, Sports, Travel, Music, and many more.
Fetch addon lists English and International channels separately. The Fetch addon is part of our collection 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 Fetch Safe & Legal?
The Fetch addon comes from a third-party repository called Doomzday. Since it is an unofficial addon, it is impossible to say with absolute certainty that Fetch is entirely safe.
However, the Doomzday repository has been around for a while. I have personally used many addons and Kodi builds from this repository without ever running into any safety issues.
I have also used the Fetch Kodi addon and did not find anything suspicious. Moreover, I ran the Doomzday repository through a web-based antivirus. It raised no flags or alarms. Therefore, I am inclined to assume that the Fetch addon is safe.
As for the legality, we at FireStickTricks cannot say anything conclusively. It is beyond our scope to verify the legitimacy of the addon.
I recommend streaming Fetch with ExpressVPN, the best Kodi VPN there is, to ensure you do not get into legal trouble.

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).
