Installing add-ons on Kodi Estuary Skin

Kodi has many community developers who create add-ons. The developers store these add-ons in something called a repository. You connect to the repository (or repo for short) and then you have access to the developers add-ons. Searching Youtube or google for ‘Best Kodi repos and add-ons’ gives you a good idea of the types of repo’s available and the ‘http’ addresses you need to connect to them. Once you have decided on a repo to connect to, carry out the below.

Step 1: From the main Kodi Estuary menu, scroll down and select the folder icon next to the favourites star.
