Kodi Addon Installer: Step-By-Step Guide For Installing Indigo

By | November 24, 2017

​Check out my tutorial for the Indigo Kodi Addon Installer. Every step is covered and once it is installed you will be able to use the TVAddons Indigo app.​

In the old days of XBMC (the old name for Kodi) we never had it as easy. I do remember being able to use the Config Wizard which was great but the Indigo addon is much better and easier to use.

This step-by-step guide will show you how to install the new Fusion repo and then install the Indigo addon installer. I will also include a video showing all the steps.

Kodi is a hot topic right now but TVAddons are trying to rally the troops with a defiant message for the copyright bullies who are attacking unofficial Kodi vendors​ with law suits and threats.

TVADDons are currently facing legal action after being closed down and their domain seized but they have fought back with a new domain and are prepared to keep fighting for the sake of the Kodi community.

These do exactly as it says on the tin.

An alternative to the Indigo installer

​If you are still unhappy with what this Kodi installer offers, there's another way to enjoy all your addons in one place and it's a one-time installation only.

Adding a custom Kodi build is a step up from the old Config Wizard and will install a complete set of featured addons. However, you should be aware that these builds also contain third-party addons so these may not all be legal.

To avoid any doubt you should use a VPN whenever connected to Kodi. Installing a build like No Limits Magic will give you access to some really good addons.

You will also get notified when the build has been updated so you can stay up-to-date with the latest Kodi addons that are in working order.

PureVPN: Why you should join the party

​If you haven't signed up with a VPN provider yet, now would be a good time. I have teamed up with PureVPN to get the best offer for you. You can get a special deal as a UK TV Services Abroad customer.

At the time of writing this, we are entering Black Friday week. This is the best time to grab a bargain and PureVPN are one of the biggest VPN providers in the World with over 1 million customers and servers in 141 countries.

They have a Black Friday Special for $2.45 per month but if you sign up through my link below you will be entitled to my special price of only $1.92 per month. That's a saving of 81%.

Join the global community of 1 million plus users. This number is a testament to our dependability, availability, & the level of trust that people have on PureVPN.

Why use a VPN?

​If you are worried about streaming content that may be deemed illegal, then a VPN will protect your identity. It can also get past servers that are blocked and it can access content that is geo-restricted.

For example, if you are in USA and want to watch BBC iPlayer (blocked outside UK) you would just connect to a UK server on your VPN and you can then access it as if you are in UK.

A VPN can also bypass and bandwidth throttling which some ISPs practice to regulate their networks. They won't admit to this but it's pretty much common knowledge that this happens.

Wrap Up

Whilst the Indigo installer is a good addon for Kodi, the builds offer so much more. Once you have installed a build, there is no need for another installer anyway.

Kodi is great but I prefer to use it as a secondary system only. My main TV system gives me access to all the premium live TV channels that I need.
