Kodi Firestick Duo- Good or Bad?
Kodi on firestick is a great combination. I mean, you can enjoy all the great entertainment at the same place with your family on the bigger screen and that too for free (firestick is not free). But, when it comes to real entertainment experience, you will never get the real and clean entertainment. Kodi is a streaming app that streams videos from unknown sources that can go down one day or another. Moreover, there are a lot of technical glitches associated with Kodi. Sometimes app crashes, stream not available, poor quality video, audio or subtitles unsynced and what not.
Firestick is indeed a great streaming stick. Firestick has Android-based OS and it allows you to install some of the greatest services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu etc. which actually are a real and clean source of entertainment. You will get the best entertainment experience for these services.
Kodi firestick combination can work for a certain period of time. Moreover, streaming copyrighted content through unknown sources also leads to legal infringements. That is why VPN is required to stream videos on Kodi on firestick. If you are using Kodi on firestick or on any other device, it is always suggested to use VPN. IPVanish is award Winning VPN of 2017. You can use IPVanish to secure your internet connection. There are other VPN services that you can use but IPVanish is what I will recommend.
So, Kodi on firestick is not bad but that doesn’t mean it is good. For real entertainment, it is always suggested to opt for Netflix, Amazon Prime Videos or to other such services. If you are good with average entertainment, go for Kodi firestick duo. That all depends on your choice.
