That means you will have to install different add-ons in order to start streaming movies, TV, sports etc. Most users use the term “side loading” when referring to this as depending on what you’re looking to do, it may require jailbreaking FireStick so it can be manipulated for streaming free content using third-party add-ons.
There are many instances where many people are facing legal consequences for selling Kodi boxes illegally which are capable of streaming copyrighted content for free. But it must be noted that Kodi is completely legal app, and as long as you are using it for content that you already own and/or public domain content, you should be safe.
