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 copyright themselves. Other, 3rd party add-ons may provide content via less than legal means. Anyway you slice it, this is the future of television, the future of streaming media content. 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!
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.
Note: If you have not installed Krypton, I recommend you refrain until the official release is ready. I have been using Krypton and I find it’s very unstable. Video streaming, in particular live television stutters constantly with lots of dropped frames. Audio will appear out of sync. Further, Krypton does not remember your preferences. But that’s just my experience.

TVAddons aka. the Fusion installer, is by far the most popular repository for Kodi boasting upwards of 13 million users monthly. With this one install, users get add-ons such as;
- UK Turks
- Easy Advanced Settings
- XBMC Hub Wizard
And many, many more. Hub wizard is a fantastic addon that I recommend users (especially new users to Kodi), take advantage of. Hub Wizard will install the most popular add-ons within the Fusion Repository in one go. Best of all, it provides users with an easy to use maintenance tool that simplifies things like adding/deleting add-ons, clearing cache, setting cache to zero, etc. Click on the logo to get started installing the Fusion/TVaddons Repository.
Remember in Empire Strikes Back when Luke decides to bolt from his training with Yoda on that shitty, shitty planet Yoda was living on and Obi-Wan says to Yoda, “That boy is our last hope.” Then Yoda replies, “No…there is another.” Well, when it comes to build wizards for Kodi, the Fusion/TVAddons Config Wizard has been reigning king for some time (and still is depending on who you ask). Turns out, there is another! The Ares Wizard built by the Tekto Developer team offers users not one but multiple builds to choose from depending on your flavour for skin themes, movies, television shows and sports. It’s quite an impressive build to say the least. This tutorial will show you how to install both the Ares Wizard Repository and The Beast build by Chris B. Click on the link to go to this tutorial
Much like the Fusion/TVAddons repository, SuperRepo comes loaded with some great features. It comes bundled with some of the staples such as, Exodus, 1 Channel, FilmOn.TV. In addition to these, users will find other great add-ons such as YiFi Movies HD, football Today and one of my favourites, Easy Advanced Settings. Click on the SuperRepo logo to get started with this repository install.
Xfinity/Xunity Talk comes loaded with plenty of great add-ons to choose from, such as iStream for live television, Cartoon World, DandyMedia, PlayBox HD and StreamTVBox to name a few. This Repo has been around for a while and updates it’s selection regularly. Click on the XunityTalk logo to get started with this repository install.
Raw Maintenance is a new Repository I recently stumbled upon. If you’ve ever had the “Low Storage” warning with your device, this repository is a must! Depending on the device you’re using to run Kodi, the memory/storage capacity can very, especially among the tv boxes where storage is usually limited to 8G. That’s not a lot of space and few users realize each time you stream a tv show or movie, it will store thumbnails and log files. These files build up over time affecting the performance of your device until finally you run out of space and Kodi is unable to run properly. This is an easy fix with Raw Maintenance. It’s an easy to use performance tool that if used on a regular basis, you can purge your packages, delete cache and thumbnail files freeing up storage space and keeping your device running smoothly. A word of caution; from the images in this file I get the impression it was designed by young males with big ambitions. Try not to get too offended by the graphics as the tool is very useful. Anyway, let’s get started!
Here’s a quick tutorial for those interested in installing the Mucky Duck Repository. Mucky is offering a new add-on that I quite like for you TV junkies out there called Lucky TV.

The Evolve add-on for Kodi is back after a brief hiatus. It’s my understanding, they have branched out on their own to deliver this add-on with great potential. I say great potential as this add-on is not unlike what users might find if they navigated to Phoenix or UKTurks Playlist. It’s not quite as comprehensive as the aforementioned add-ons, but it’s well on it’s way and worth having in your collection. After all, who doesn’t like collecting great add-ons?? Without further delay, Clin on the LINK to be taken to this tutorial. Please note, and I have to say this, this add-on does not have authorization from the copyright holders to stream the content within.

I’m not sure if you’ve heard, Blue, Costa, TNPB, T.A and Valhalla all left Phoenix and have joined forces with Bob. This is the second mass exodus from Phoenix in as many years and in the Kodi community, you likely know or at least should know, 90% of these developers make $0 money doing what they do to bring us great free television and movies. They do this as a hobby, as a passion. They do this because they love what they do and they go where they’re happy and I’m happy this team has found a home with Bob! The content provided by the above mentioned developers is excellent! All the latest movies, television shows and live streams, not to mention your favourite offerings from years gone by. Click Here to learn how to install this Repository and Add-on.
Specto for XBMC/Kodi was once Genesis. Created by the developer Lambda, the same developer responsible for Exodus. When Lambda moved on, another developer started maintaining the source code for this add-on. It’s now what is commonly referred to as “forked.” Over the past 2yrs, this add-on has taken on a life of it’s own and become popular enough that other add-ons now draw upon it. Goodfellas is one such add-on that uses Specto for some of their Movie and TV content. This tutorial will show you step-by-step, how to install this Repo and enable the Specto add-on. Without further delay, CLICK ON THIS LINK and let’s get into it.
Zen is yet another great add-on for XBMC/Kodi for all those in search of a solid resource to stream all the latest Movies and Television shows. If you’re looking for an add-on similar to Exodus or Specto, then put Zen in your wheel house. Without further delay, CLICK HERE to be taken to this tutorial.
Eye Candy Tv is another one of those add-ons that seems to have it all. And by all I mean, the latest in television shows, movies, even live tv. It’s not yet one of my go-to’s however, it’s growing in popularity with lots of potential which is why I’m including it here. Please note, this add-on does not have authorization from the copyright holders to broadcast the streams contained within.

Last week Blue, a developer from Bob tweetted she used MetalliQ with Bob when looking for movies and television shows. I find Blue to be a great resouce for Kodi content and when she speaks, it usually pertains to quality content. So, to the web I went and what I discovered is MetalliQ is from OpenELEQ and much like the Meta add-on, MetalliQ will search your favourite add-ons for content in a one stop shop once configured. Without further delay, CLICK HERE and let’s proceed with this tutorial.
I was originally going to place the Stream Army Repository/3rd party add-on in my live add-ons page however, upon further inspection I found this add-on to be another one of those gems that seems to have it all! For starters, yes there is a live section for both regular television and sports (sorted by channel and mostly UK content) however, the content for live concerts is quite good and I found the documentary section to be quite in-depth. Further, there’s a decent amount of content within the conspiracy, comedy Movies and adult (research purposes of course) sections. When you look at this add-on as a whole, it’s not unlike UKTurks or One24215. That’s a lot of value for one add-on! Please note, this add-on does not have authorization from the copyright holders to broadcast the streams contained within.
