In this guide, I will demonstrate how to install Genesis addon on Kodi. You can use this method on FireStick and all other Kodi supported devices (including Mobiles, Computers, Raspberry Pi, etc.)
Update: This Kodi Addon is currently unavailable. See our list of the best Kodi addons for some alternatives.
If you are an avid Kodi user, you must’ve used the Genesis back in the day as it was one of the best Kodi addons. Unfortunately, Genesis along with Exodus, Elysium and a bunch of other unofficial ones were shut down. Genesis was later revived, albeit briefly, and was rebranded as Genesis Reborn. Unfortunately, Genesis Reborn was also shut down. Thankfully, this Kodi addon is back and has the same name as before – Genesis. The addon offers an impressive collection of Movies & TV Shows. This on-demand provider uses the latest scrapers and gets you the best working links. It is good to see this addon back because so many of them have gone offline with the shut down of Supremacy and Maverick TV repos.
Note: Kodi Add-ons are like search engines and find the content you are looking for. These should not be used to stream copyrighted content which is unlawful. If found streaming illegal content, you could get into serious legal troubles.
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 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.
