We construct a stable model structure on profinite spectra with a continuous action of an arbitrary profinite group. The motivation is to provide a natural framework in a subsequent paper for a new and conceptually simplified construction of continuous homotopy fixed point spectra and of continuous homotopy fixed point spectral sequences for Lubin-Tate spectra under the action of the extended Morava stabilizer group.
