This post will show you how to install Fido 19 Kodi addon. The images I have used in this guide were taken on Windows 11. However, the installation steps provided in this guide apply to all Kodi-compatible devices, including FireStick, Android TV, Android smart devices, iOS, Mac, and more.
What Is Fido K19?
Fido is an all-in-one Kodi addon that offers options to watch movies, shows, live TV channels, videos for kids, family content, stand-up comedy, fitness programs, and more. Fido K19 is a third-party addon from an unofficial, namesake repository, Fido. Therefore, you must sideload this addon to Kodi.
The addon is lightweight and works smoothly on every platform. Fido is now part of our library of the top 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 Fido K19 Safe and Legal?
We cannot make any safety claims for third-party addons from unofficial sources. This is because they may or may not be safe. The same goes for Fido K19. However, there are some aspects you may consider. For instance, I have this addon installed on multiple devices. I haven’t experienced any troubles.
To further my confidence, I scanned the zip file of this addon with Total Antivirus. The scan results were positive. The antivirus did not find any viruses or malicious elements. Therefore, I have decided to continue using Fido K19. Here is the result of the scan:
Regarding legality, FireStickTricks.com does not have ample resources to determine whether Fido K19 is legal or not. This addon is available in multiple countries, and we cannot say if it has the license to distribute the videos available on its platform.
How to Install Fido K19 Addon
You are installing this addon from a third-party source and an unofficial repository. As a result, there are a few more steps here than the official addons.
Therefore, I have broken down the process into three parts to make it simpler to follow. Here is what we are doing today:
- Part 1: Allow Unknown Sources.
- Part 2: Install the Fido repository.
- Part 3: Install Fido K19 from the Fido repository.
Let’s get started.

The page contains some unverified services, and we are not certain whether they hold legal licenses to distribute the content. FireStickTricks.com does not verify the legality of each app/service in all regions. Do your due diligence if you use any of the unverified apps/services, and stream only content that is available in the public domain. The end-user shall be solely responsible for the media accessed.
Part 1: Allow Unknown Sources
As I have already mentioned, we are getting the Fido Kodi addon from an unofficial or unknown source. Kodi is designed to prevent the automatic installation of such addons. Hence, we must tweak a Kodi setting to allow the installation. Follow these steps:
1. Go to the home screen of Kodi. Open Settings by clicking the gear button in the top-left section.
2. Click System.
3. Click Add-ons in the left column of the next screen. Now, turn on the switch or toggle for Unknown Sources on the right (image below).
4. Click Yes on the prompt.
5. Click Update official add-ons from on the same window.
6. Choose Any repositories.
By choosing this option, you have allowed the addons to get updated automatically from their repositories.
This is how you allow unknown sources on Kodi.
Part 2: Install the Fido Repository
It is the Fido repository that hosts the Fido K19 addon. Therefore, the first thing we want to do is get this repository. Here are the steps:
1. Go to Settings again by choosing the gear icon on the home screen.
2. Click the File manager tile on the following window.
3. Click Add source on either left or right. Double-click if you are on a computer.
4. Click <None> on the popup window.
5. Enter the following URL or path in the input field: http://fantazyrepo.uk/repo, and click OK to continue.
You want to ensure you type the path correctly. If the URL is wrong, you will not be able to install the Fido K19 Kodi addon.
Note: FireStickTricks.com is not associated with those who host this URL or own the repository available through this URL. This is the original source of the repository.
6. Highlight or select the input box Enter a name for the media source. Type a source name of your choice. Click OK.
I am going with Fido. However, you may pick any other custom name. The idea is to make the name relevant and memorable, as you will need it later.
7. Press the back button to return to the Settings window. Click Add-ons.
8. Open Install from zip file.
9. Click Yes.
10. Click Fido or the source name you chose earlier on this popup window.
11. You must see a zip file on the next screen. Click repository.Fido-x.x.zip. Here, x.x is the version number of the zip file, and it could be different for you than in the image below.
12. Wait for the Fido repository to install. The installation confirmation appears in the top-right corner of your screen. Stay on this window for the next part.
You have successfully installed the Fido repository on Kodi.
Part 3: Install Fido K19
In this part, you are using the Fido repository you just installed to get the Fido K19 addon. Here is how it is done:
1. Click Install from repository.
If you are not on this window (image below), navigate to it from the Kodi home screen: Settings > Add-ons.
2. Click Fido Repository.
3. Chose Video add-ons.
4. Click Fido.K19.
5. Click Install on this window in the bottom-right area.
6. Click OK on the following popup with the list of additional add-ons.
7. You can monitor the installation progress on the screen (check the image below).
8. After about a minute or two, you see the installation confirmation message in the top-right corner: Fido.K19 Add-on installed.
This is how you install the Fido K19 addon on Kodi.
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.
Step 9: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your FireStick is now secured with the fastest VPN.
How to Use Fido Kodi Addon
Fido seems like a straightforward addon to me. Moreover, I found it relatively easy to use. So let’s get started with it.
Go to the home screen of Kodi and select Add-ons in the left panel (but don’t click it). Navigate to the right, and under Video add-ons, you may click Fido.K19.
Fido offers the following categories: Live TV, Music TV: Radio & Concerts, Classic TV Shows, Movies, Kids Area, Stand Up Comedy, Fitness, TV BoxSets, and more.
The Live TV section of Fido K19 looks solid. It has tons of cable TV channels from all over the world. In addition, it features free and official live TV services.
I noticed that the free-to-air channels are more likely to work than the others.
