This post shows you how to install Stirr Kodi Addon.
This addon is compatible with any device that supports Kodi, including FireStick, Fire TV Cube, Android Mobiles, Android TV, iOS, PC, Mac, and more.
What is Stirr?
Stirr is a free streaming service that sources content from the Sinclair TV stations. It primarily features live TV streaming. However, you may also find some on-demand content.
Stirr is a legitimate service. You can download the Stirr app from the official stores on FireStick, Apple TV, Android TV, Android Mobiles, Roku, iOS, and more.
Stirr addon is a way to stream content from Stirr on Kodi. It offers content from multiple US cities/regions. However, thankfully it does not place any geographic restrictions.
This service is free of cost and uses the ad-based revenue model.
We have added Stirr to our catalog of trending 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 Stirr Kodi Addon Safe & Legal?
Stirr is a legitimate service with official apps for several major devices and platforms. However, the Stirr Kodi addon is hosted on a third-party, unofficial repository.
When it comes to unofficial sources, we can never be truly sure whether they are safe or not.
However, I have tried the Stirr Kodi addon on several devices. None of the devices displayed signs of a virus, malware, or malicious software.
I also scanned the repository zip file with an online antivirus tool to ensure peace of mind. The antivirus did not raise any flags. It did not find anything suspicious.
Therefore, I am assuming that the Stirr addon is safe. I will continue using it. Here is the proof:
Regarding legality, there is some dilemma. Even though Stirr is legal, we do not know whether streaming on its addon from the unofficial repository will contribute to the revenue generation for the owners.
I recommend using a reliable Kodi VPN, such as ExpressVPN with Stirr addon, to avoid getting 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).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
