    Since you've asked here instead of just buying one from Argos, do you mean you want it pre-loaded with Kodi?

    I intend to put Kodi on it, so pre loaded would be ok.

    I was just looking for one for around the £20 mark to play with I missed out when they were £25 at Argos.

    Doesn't install kodi only enables developer mode. Kodi cant be installed as roku uses brightscript and kodi relies on C# or C++. Kodi developers have no intention of rewriting for brightscript as it has been asked on the kodi forum on more than 1 occasion. Stock reply from kodi developers seems to be if someone wants to fork it they can but they have no interest in doing it themselves. Shame as I have the roku stick and roku 2 and it would complete the box

    Zakutd I could send you one mate but to be honest you would be better setting up the firestick yourself as most builds require maintenance over time whether it might be to remove/update addons that no longer work or to add new additional addons. If you need any assistance and I can help your welcome to pm me to ask any queries you may have.
