Here is a step-by-step guide on how to install Genesis Addon on Kodi / FireStick. The process is fairly simple. First, you need to get Genesis installed on your Kodi / FireStick. It is a stand alone application that allows you to add more features on to your Kodi / FireStick.
If you are a Kodi or FireStick fan or just getting into the world of streaming it can seem like a daunting task to find a working addon. Thankfully, there is a plethora of options out there that should cover all your streaming needs. This guide will take you through the steps to install your first add-on so that you can begin enjoying all the content available to you. Click the images below to download the addon.
In this tutorial, I will show you how to install the Genesis addon on Kodi. You can use this method on the FireStick and any other device that supports Kodi (including cell phones, computers, Raspberry Pi, etc.)
If you are an avid Kodi user, you probably used to use Genesis because it was one of the best Kodi addons. Unfortunately, Genesis was closed, along with Exodus, Elysium, and a host of other outlets. Genesis was subsequently relaunched, albeit briefly, and renamed Genesis Reborn. Unfortunately, Genesis Reborn is also closed. Fortunately, this addon for Kodi is back and has the same name as before – Genesis. The addon offers an impressive collection of movies and TV shows. This on-demand supplier uses the latest staples and offers you the best working connections. It's nice to see these addons back, since many of them were taken offline with the closure of the Supremacy and Maverick TV repo.
Update: The Kodi Genesis addon is no longer available. Then try one of the other addons on our list of the best Kodi addons for streaming.
Message: Kodi add-ons are like search engines and find the content you are looking for. They cannot be used to distribute copyrighted content, which is illegal. If you are caught watching illegal content, you could be in serious legal trouble.
Attention KODI users: please read before continuing
Kodi addons / modules offer unlimited streaming content, but can also get you in legal trouble if you get caught watching movies / TV shows / sports for free. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN when streaming online. A good Kodi VPN can hide your identity, bypass government surveillance, block content, and ISP throttling (which also contributes to buffer-free streaming).
I use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device, including the Amazon FireStick. Get 3 months free and save 49% on annual plans. There is also a 30 day money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.

Before you start streaming video with Kodi addons or modules, I want to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and the government. This means that streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live broadcasts and sports) can lead to legal problems.
Fortunately, there is a reliable way to hide all your streaming activities from your ISP and the government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN masks your original IP address and helps you bypass surveillance, ISPs and geographical restrictions on content.
Personally, I use and recommend ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all types of applications and streaming devices.
OPINION: We do not encourage copyright infringement. But what if you accidentally upload content from an illegal source? It is not always easy to distinguish between a legal and an illegal source.
So before you start streaming on Kodi, read here how to get VPN protection in 3 easy steps.
Step one: Purchase your ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. This means you can use it for free for the first 30 days. If you are not satisfied with the service (which is unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step two: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN application on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have included the exact steps below, starting with step 4.
Step three: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That's it. Now your connection is secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The steps to install Kodi VPN on Fire TV devices are described below. If you have other broadcast devices, follow steps 1 to 3 above.
Step four: Sign up for ExpressVPN HERE (if you are not already a subscriber).
Step 5: Go to the Fire TV Stick home screen. Click the Search button and then the Search option (see figure below).
Step six: Type expressvpn into the search bar and select when it appears.
Seventh step: Click on the Download button.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN application and log in using the username and password you created when you purchased your ExpressVPN subscription.
Step 9: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That's it. Now your FireStick is protected with the fastest VPN.
If you have buffering issues, you can also install Real-Debrid on Kodi to get new HD sources and fast streaming.
HD cinema is also a very popular trend these days. If you want to give it a try, you can read how to install the Cinema APK on your FireStick here.
