Watching Sky Sports on Firestick via Amazon Silk
To stream Sky Sports on Firestick on Amazon Silk, all you have to do is open “Internet” from the app list or from the search bar, type skysports.com, enter your account details to log in and after that, you’ll be able to watch anything on Sky Sports on your Firestick.
If you don’t know what is Amazon Silk and haven’t heard it before, let me share it briefly.
“Amazon Silk is a web browser designed and developed by Amazon specifically for Kindle Fire, Fire Phone, Fire TV, and Firesticks. You can browser and stream any content on Amazon Silk similar to any other web browsers”.
If you don’t know already, let me tell you that Google Chrome is not officially available for Firestick, and the default browser for Firestick is Amazon Silk.
It works perfectly fine and you can easily stream the matches on Sky Sports by simply visiting the website.
Alternately, you can also try “Glance Browser” available on the App Store of Amazon If you aren’t satisfied with Amazon Silk.
If everything seems perfect and you are still having trouble watching Sky Sports on Amazon Silk, then there is a high probability that you are based in a country where Sky Sports isn’t available at the moment.
Currently, Sky Sports is available only in the UK and a few other countries.
In this case, I would suggest you install any Virtual Private Network (VPN) so that you can access Sky Sports from your location. Some of the top VPNs for Firestick are ExpressVPN and NordVPN.
The pricing of both of these two VPNs is extremely affordable and they are the top players in the niche.
Note: You can read one of my previous posts where I shared a few not-so-common ways to download the Google Chrome browser If you aren’t comfortable using Amazon Silk.

Watch Sky Sports on Firestick via KODI
To watch Sky Sports on Firestick via KODI, you have to:
- Install the Downloader app on Firestick.
- Open the Downloader and visit Kodi.tv.
- Now you have to tap on the “Download” button and select “Android” on the next page.
- Finally, click on the 32-bit version option and complete the download.
Kodi is an open-source media player where you can listen to music, podcasts, watch live channels, and more.
The best part about Kodi is, that it is completely free to use for anyone. It is available across multiple platforms such as Windows, Linux, macOS, and more.
To download and use the compatible version with Firestick, you should get the Android version of the app.
The “Downloader” app which I have mentioned above is officially available on the App Store of Amazon. You can use this app both as a”Web Browser” and as a “Downloader tool” because it acts like that one.
For example, If you have a direct link to any file which you want to download, you can simply do that with Downloader by pasting the link, or else you can browse the website and then download the file.
Installing any third-party apps on Firestick isn’t allowed by default and you have to change that setting manually or else you might not be able to install Kodi on your Firestick.
Simply head over to “Settings > My Fire TV > Developer Options > Apps from Unknown Sources” and turn it on.
After installing the app, don’t forget to delete the downloaded file so that it doesn’t consume the internal memory of your Firestick. Don’t worry, the app won’t go away after you delete that file. The last thing you have to do is, install an “Add-on” and browse Sky Sports on your Firestick TV for free.
