If you’re streaming media to multiple apps on your Fire TV Stick, Trakt TV linking will let you keep track of every TV show and movie you watch. It even recommends movies and TV shows based on your watchlist or watch history.

When connected to your streaming apps, Trakt sends push notifications whenever new episodes of your favorite shows are released. Plus, it syncs the content you watch across your devices and streaming platforms to create a unified streaming experience. This guide shows you how to activate Trackt TV in Firestick apps. You will need a Trakt TV account, an internet connection, and a Trakt-compatible app.

Activate Trakt TV on Fire TV Stick

The way you link and activate Trakt TV on your Fire TV Stick depends on the app you link to your Trakt account. This guide shows you how to activate and set up Trakt TV in two applications – Cinema HD and Kodi.

Activate Track TV in Cinema HD

Cinema HD is one of the best apps to stream and download movies (free) to Fire TV Stick and other Fire TV devices. Even though it is a free app, it does not display ads or annoying pop-ups while streaming or downloading movies. Cinema HD allows you to link your Trakt account to easily keep track of the content you’re streaming.

If you’re using the Cinema HD app on an Amazon Firestick, here’s how to link and activate Trakt TV within the app.

Open Cinema HD, select the hamburger menu icon in the top left corner and select “Settings”.

Select Account.

Scroll to the “Trakt” section and select “Login to Trakt TV”.

Cinema HD will display instructions for linking your Trakt account, as well as an 8-digit code. Do not close the page/instructions and proceed to the next step.

Open a web browser and go to the Trakt TV activation page – https://trakt.tv/activate. Sign in to Trakt if the web browser is not associated with your account.Enter the activation code displayed in the Cinema HD app on your TV and click Continue.

Select “Yes” in the confirmation prompt to confirm the app’s access to your Trakt account on the Fire TV Stick.

This will enable Trakt TV integration with the Cinema HD app.

Install and activate Trakt TV on Kodi

Kodi is another app that provides free content on Fire TV devices. Here’s how to activate and use the Trakt TV add-on for Kodi on your Fire TV Stick.

From the main menu, select the search icon in the upper left corner.

Select add-ons to search.

Type trakt.tv in the search bar and select OK.

Select Scenario – Path.

Select Install.

Wait while the app installs Trakt TV from the Kodi addon repository. Pay attention to the warning “Add-ons are included” in the upper right corner of the application.

Wait another 5-10 seconds and Trakt should display an authentication page with an activation code and a QR code.

Scan the QR code with your smartphone camera or continue to the next step to enter the code manually on the Trakt TV website.

Go to the Trakt TV activation page in a web browser and sign in to your Trakt account. Enter your activation code to authorize Trakt in the Kodi app if you’re already signed in. Click “Continue” to continue.

Select Yes at the confirmation prompt to connect the Trakt add-on to your account.

Note: The Trakt plugin may sometimes fail to display the activation page after installation. If you skipped the activation step, follow the steps below to get your activation code again.

Open the Kodi Settings menu, select Add-ons > My Add-ons > All > Trakt and select Customize.

On the General tab, select “How do I allow the trakt add-on to access my trakt.tv account?”.

Wait for the add-on to load the account authorization page and enter the code on the Trakt TV website – see step #6.
