The Alpha


xbmckodi-thealphaLogoThe Alpha

The Alpha has been around for a while now and offers users some great resources when it comes to streaming live television and movies. Even Lambda makes an appearance here providing the foundation code for the Tinklepad add-on, another resource for those looking to stream the latest television shows and movies. There’s lots here for you to take in and well worth adding to your add-on collection. Without further delay, here’s the install tutorial.

Step 12:

Once the Unknown Sources is enabled, a pop up window will open warning you of the hazards of 3rd part add-ons

Note: The developers of Kodi are posting this warning here as they do not endorse or support any 3rd party add-ons themselves. Kodi is an open source media player and anyone with the know how can post information/media sources to it. All the source links used by 3rd part add-ons are available online. The developers of these 3rd party add-ons are just pointing the media to this shared source link. I myself have never had any issues with malware or cyber attacks via kodi. I always recommend using a VPN for your internet security and do your best to research any 3rd party add-ons you wish to install. At least I do. I visit multiple forums to see what other users are saying about the add-on before I recommend it to anyone using my site. I hope this helps! Now select Yes if you wish to continue and let’s move on
