Repositories


In this section of the website, my goal is to provide users with quick, step-by-step instructions on how to install some of the best Repositories available on Kodi. If you’re new to Kodi, hopefully these guides will help to familiarize yourself with the layout of Kodi and how content is generated to your Kodi media centre. If you’re an experienced user, in time as this site grows, I hope to expose you to Repositories you may not be familiar with and worth taking the time to install.

First, what is a Kodi Repository? These are the delivery mechanisms for add-ons within Kodi (the media sources). Some of these Repositories will contain many, many add-ons. Others, just one or two. Some are fully sanctioned, provided by the broadcasters/copyright holders themselves. Other, 3rd party add-ons, may provide content via less than legal means. Anyway you slice it, this is the future of television. Watch a movie, listen to a playlist, learn a language, learn a new instrument, discover a television show from half way around the globe. It’s all here!

xbmckodi-krypton-v17-logoKrypton v17 Repo Install

This tutorial will show users how to install a Repository/3rd Party add-on for the new XBMC/Kodi Krypton v17 release. If you’re new to Kodi, this tutorial is for you.  If you’re an experienced user to previous versions of Kodi, take note as the interface has changed. Much of what was common practice in previous versions may not appear as obvious right out of the gate. There is a minor learning curve involved but have no fear, it’s pretty straight forward once you get the hang of the new layout. This tutorial already assumes you have downloaded and installed the latest Kodi Krypton v17 release from Kodi.tv. Without further delay, CLICK ON THIS LINK and let’s dive into this tutorial

xbmckodi-KIGLogoKIG: Kodi Israel Group

Kodi Israel Group or KIG for short, is a the most comprehensive repository for Kodi I’ve seen to date! Every working repository and add-on appears to be contained in this one-stop repository. Exodus, Elysium, Stream Hub, BOB, DandyMedia, on and one. I can’t garuntee how long this repo will be active or how many of the add-ons will be active given the many lawsuits facing some of the kodi developers around the world. Explore this repo for yourself.

xbmckodi-SMASHLogoSmash Repo

Smash Repo comes courtesy of, SMASH!?! But that’s the state of kodi these days and to be honest, I don’t blame the developers one bit for wanting anonymity. I’m not sure how long this repo will remain active, all I can say is at the time of this posting, Smash Repo has/had the latest updates to some of your favourite add-ons, such as;

  • SALTS
  • The Royal We
  • IceFilms
  • f4MTester (a must have for live streaming television

Colossus for XBMC/Kodi is a great repo with a bit of everything; you’re favourite movies, the latest television shows and of course, live television streams. Of particular note, users installing this repo will find the Covenant add-on, which is the latest release from the lambda camp. For those unfamiliar, lambda is the developer responsible for Genesis, which now goes by Specto and of course the number one add-on in Kodi, EXODUS. With the addition of Covenant, Exodus will no longer be supported. With all that out of the way, let’s move on to the install tutorial

xbmckodi-streamhublogoStream Hub

Stream Hub Repository/3rd party add-on is relatively new to me however, it’s been around for a while. With improvements made by other developers of other add-ons/3rd Party Repos, StreamHub has made some upgrades to their offering. This is a great add-on that falls into the all-in-one category, much like Bob, Brettus, The Pyramid, Phoenix, UK Turks etc. With that in mind, there’s a lot here for just about everyone, including the kids. Music, Documentaries, Live TV, Movies, your favorite TV shows, and all categorized, and sub-categorized. I highly recommend you add this to your collection of add-ons (keeping in mind these streams do not have authorization from any of the copyright holders). Without further delay, CLICK HERE and let’s proceed with this tutorial.

SuperRepoLogoSuperRepo

When I first got into Kodi, next to Fusion/TVAddons, SuperRepo was my next go to. Since that time (approx 5yrs ago), Kodi has had a significant grown spurt and the kodi community has benefited from some very talented developers. While SuperRepo may not be as popular as it once was, this is still a very strong Repository/3rd party add-on that is well worth adding to your file manager. Without further delay, CLICK HERE and let’s install this repo.

For as much as I like to refer to this repo as BOB, the noobsandnerds Repo as undergone some big changes of late, becoming home to more than just BOB.

The Quantum add-on for XBMC/Kodi is a decent option for users looking to stream live tv. While the majority of the channels originate in the UK, North American users don’t let this deter you as this add-on also offers plenty in the way of live sports feeds too. The add-on is set up similar to Evolve, Phoenix, BOB in that you have more than one developer working on it to bring users content. Each developer seems to offer something a little different with loads of options for movies, television and live television streams. The Quantum add-on comes courtesy of the Origins Repo.

xbmckodi-bubblesLogoBubbles Repository

Word on the street is, Bubbles Repository/3rd party was developed by none other than Labmda, creator of Genesis/Specto and Exodus. As with both Genesis/Specto and Exodus, this add-on offers users the latest in streaming movies and television with the ability to download the files should you choose. What’s different about this add-on from previous iterations, Bubbles is optimised for users who prefer the debrid service Premiumize. However, this is not a necessity as the add-on allows users to select from the premium service or continue without it. It should be noted, this add-on will only work with Krypdon v.17 Without further delay, CLICK ON THIS LINK and let’s proceed with this tutorialTransGif
