A Step by Step Guide To KODI and Streaming Movies or TV Shows

A guide to Kodi and watching free Movies and TV shows

Kodi has become one of the best home entertainment systems available, and all for free.

Originally called XBMC (Xbox Media Center) it has evolved leaving behind the hardware limitations of the original Xbox and changing its name to Kodi.

Kodi can be installed on many different hardware platforms from a cheap desktop/laptop computer to a Raspberry Pi. There are even installs for an Apple TV.

Dedicated media center boxes and Android sticks can also be bought. If you don’t want to install and setup Kodi yourself than there are several to choose from.

After Kodi is installed to a media box it needs what are called Add-ons to take advantage of the content available.

Add-ons are like apps for a smartphone that are installed in Kodi and do what they are programmed to do.

For example Exodus is a popular add-on that allows you to stream movies and TV shows with Kodi.

There are different sections in Kodi that a add-on will be in after it is installed, including Pictures, Video, Music, Programs, and System.

How To Install Kodi
Installing Kodi depends on which hardware you plan to use.

To keep it simple Kodi can be installed on a old computer, Mac or PC, and setup as a dedicated media center.

To do this simply go to the Kodi download page and download the install that works for your machine. https://kodi.tv/download/

When downloading Kodi be sure to write down the version such as Isengard or Jarvis as it will be needed later to install Add-ons.

The install for Windows or a Mac is easy by simply following the instructions.

The install to a Apple TV or a Raspberry Pi the setup is more difficult.

How To Install Add-ons
Add-ons can be installed in two ways, one from a zip file downloaded from the creators site, or two from a pre-setup repository.

Using a pre-setup repository such as SuperRepo or Fusion is the most common method. Repositories are useful since the good ones will have all the plug-ins on a list and will install them for you automatically when selected.

Why dont I see the Add-on I am looking for?
Each add-on will be located in its own repository, so adding the repository it is in will be necessary.

For example 1Channel is located in the tknorris repository.

Click here for instructions for how to install 1Channel.

When I click a link to a TV show or movie the link doesn’t work or buffers.
This does happen and the more popular Kodi becomes the more the servers/sources can at times become overwhelmed.

This is the reason many sources will come up on a list. If one source link does not work go to the next link. If it starts to buffer stop the video and move on to another link.

Most often a good source can be found within 2-3 links depending on the time of day.
