This tutorial will demonstrate how to install The Promise Kodi Addon on FireStick. The instructions provided in our guide apply to all other Kodi-compatible platforms, such as Android TV, Smartphones, PC, Mac, and more.
What is The Promise Kodi Addon?
The Promise is a third-party Kodi addon from an unofficial repository.
The Promise is a multipurpose addon.
It lets you watch movies, shows, documentaries, live TV, sports, cartoons, and more.
It has a special category, People. This category lets you find content by various artists.
The Promise addon supports Trakts and premium hosters, such as Real Debrid, Premiumize, All Debrid, and more.
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 The Promise Addon Safe & Legal?
The Promise Addon is available via an unofficial or third-party Kodi repository called, The WareHouse Repository.
Therefore, we can’t determine whether the addon is safe. However, it hasn’t caused problems on my devices. It did not install any malware or malicious software.
I also scanned the repository URL through Virus Total. The antivirus also did not raise any alarms or reveal anything suspicious.
Here’s the proof:
We at FireStickTricks cannot verify the legal status of The Promise addon. Therefore, we do not know whether it holds the proper licenses for the content it distributes.
I recommend a Kodi VPN with this addon to avoid getting into legal troubles.

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.
