With the Amazon Fire Stick cost at only $40, we have an amazing little streaming device for using Kodi, Netflix, and other apps.  The Amazon Fire Stick is particularly popular for its features, and flexibility, but also for its very interesting price point. The device, which allows users to access content via Fire TV, can be purchased for only $39.99, and it features quad-core processor with 1GB of memory.

One of the most exciting things about the Amazon Fire TV stick is that it offers a large variety of content and apps (both Amazon-approved and “third-party”). There is some limited content which is free, and can be enjoyed immediately with the purchase of a Fire Stick.

Fire Stick Cost: Hidden Features

If you already know how to install Kodi on FireStick, then you’re already aware of Fire Stick’s true potential.

But those of you who don’t know about Kodi FireStick are in for a treat.  You can use the $40 Amazon FireStick as a Kodi media center!  This is the best “hidden feature” of the Fire Stick. Check out some of the great channels you’ll be able to access through Kodi. I think you’ll be surprised by what you’re able to watch for free.

In Addition to Kodi, though, we can install just about any Android app onto our FireStick by sideloading the app.  Some other great free streaming apps are Showbox, CinemaBox HD, and Crackle (free).

As far as the price goes, it really depends on what content you chose to subscribe to.  Or instead of watching paid streaming content on Fire Stick, use apps like Kodi FireStick, Crackle, or Popcornflix.  In other words, Amazon isn’t charging you to watch Netflix…but Netflix is!
