How To Install Poseidon Kodi Add-On for Fire Stick and Fire TV
With many of the bigger name add-ons being taken offline lately, there is a lot to like with the revamp of this old classic Kodi Add-On.
Poseidon is a solid add-on that gained some popularity a few years back on previous versions of Kodi, but was never updated to to be compatible with Kodi version 17. Luckily Poseidon has caught up with the times, and has quickly become one of my favorite add-ons for streaming free movies and tv shows on Fire Stick and Fire TV.
Why We Like Poseidon
The Poseidon interface will be very familiar to any one who has used any of the add-ons such as Exodus, or Covenant. What is different about Poseidon is that it doesn't scrape as many sources as those apps did. Some people might see this to a weakness, but we found that because of this the list sources loaded much faster.
We also liked the way it displays links in a more graphical way than similar add-ons, making it easy to differentiate between 1080P / 720P / and SD quality.

While Poseidon offers many free movies and TV shows, it does not offer a way to watch live TV. While I do love some of the free TV streaming apps like Mobdro and Live NetTV, the app I keep coming back to without fail is SET TV. It comes standard with all paid stations, including league passes for all NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL etc., plus free Pay-Per-Views.
The best part? Its just $20 a month.
