In this post you will find how you can download, install and configure the Kodi appwhich will allow you to have all the pay TV on your Android phone. ENTER!




Today you will learn how to install and configure this great app that will allow you to have all the pay TV available on your Android device. But first, let's get to the fundamental question:

What is Kodi?

Kodi (formerly known as Xbox Media Center or XBMC) is a multi-platform entertainment media center under the GNU/GPL license. It was initially created for the first generation of the Xbox game console.

However, Kodi's development team has ported the product to run natively on Linux, Mac OS X (Leopard, Tiger and Apple TV), Microsoft Windows operating systems, Android and the Ouya console. Wikipedia.

Download and configure Kodi:

First I would like to inform that many users have had problems downloading this app, as it is hosted by Play Store, and in many countries it is prohibited to download it. If you can download it then you will be lucky, but if you don't have it available, click this link so you go to a page where you can download the latest version (first leads to my shortener, then to the link).

Okay, now that you've downloaded it, here are the important steps:

  1. Install it (if you can't, check that your configuration has the option to "install apps from unknown sources").
  2. Open the app.
  3. If you have the app in English and you want to change it to Spanish, go to the "System" section, then to "Appearance" and then to "International". Within that section, you can change the language to Spanish.
  4. Now, if your phone is low-end and you want the app to take up fewer resources, then you'll need to change the app's theme: In the top section to International, click on the "Skin" section, and choose the Skin called "re-Touched".
  5. Now, so you can watch TV (free movies, free channels, and paid channels), we're going to have to install "Add-ons" or "Plugins". There are 2 ways to start with it: downloading them from the web browser or adding new repositories where we can find those channels.

I will now explain the 2 methods, go to the one you find most convenient or easy to do.

Add channel list in Kodi using web browser:

  1. First, open your web browser from Android and enter this link (leads to my shortener, then to the link), and find the section "Part 3. Installing Add-on Adryanlist"
  2. Then go to the download link and download the Add-on.
  3. Once it has downloaded, go to Kodi, go to the "System" section and enter the "Add-ons" section and click on the "install from a .zip file" section.
  4. Go to the place where the Add-on was downloaded. By default, the path can be "External storage>Download". Wait for it to be installed and you're done.
  5. IF YOU WANT MORE CHANNELS, enter the following pageand locate the "XBMC/Kodi" section and download the corresponding Add-on.

To watch the TV channels, simply open Kodi, go to the "Videos" section, then "Add-ons" and choose who you want to watch and that's it.

Add new repositories to find channels in Kodi:

This part of the tutorial is the most interesting, since here we will show you how you can add new repositories so you can find the main channels without having to do it from the web browser. Do the following steps:

  1. Get into Kodi, then go to "System" and jump out of there right away.
  2. You will see that on "Systems" several options are displayed below it. Click on "File Manager".
  3. Then click on the "Add Source" option. Here you can enter a URL that contains channels available to Kodi.

For this example, enter "http://srp.nu" and click "Done". Then, click on the "Enter a name for this media source" section, the program will ask you to enter a name for that media URL, give it one that you can identify, and click "Done" again, and then click "Ok".

Once this is done, go back to Kodi's main screen, go back to "System" and then to "Add-ons", then go to "Install from a .zip file", and then, locate the name of the list you just put, enter it and then go to "Jarvis", then go to "all", and install the file you see.

Now, go to the same section of "System>Add-ons", and go to the section called "Install from a repository", and enter the repository you installed. Inside you will find many channels where you can find a variety of content. Click on the one you are interested in and install it.

Once you have installed a channel, go to Kodi's main screen, go to "Video>Add-ons", and it will be available.
