That’s where we come into play, we’re the original source for the best unofficial Kodi addons. In the guide below, we’re first going to walk you through installing Kodi itself, and then how to automatically configure a selection of the most popular Kodi addons.

Please take your time, you’ll find each and every step of the Kodi installation process detailed as follows. Please remember that this is the unofficial use of the Kodi media center, and by no means its developers intended purpose!
