Today we are going to be going through a little longer of a tutorial. Im going to be showing you how to install Fusion on Kodi, and how to install addons using Fusion. This might seem a little hard to understand or somewhat complicated. But I’ll try to make it as easy as possible, and explain everything as best I can.

Well you all know of Kodi and its capabilities. If you have installed some Kodi Addons and Kodi Builds before, then you know exactly what I mean. The possibilities of Kodi are only restricted with the Addons and Builds you have installed.

As you know, find a good Kodi addon is tough. I personally have went through so many, and its sometimes a disappointment after going through the 18 steps to find out the Kodi Addon just plain sucks. Been there done that type of deal. Hence the reason we built this site.

One time you had to install Kodi addons individually. This can drive a sane many…. insane. It just took so much time, and the steps to install each addon are a little long for the novice user. Thankfully, we don’t have to do that any longer. Fusion was taking down a while back, it certainly bothered a lot of people. Fusion addon For kodi just makes things much easier. But its BACK, and its better then ever.

So lets get on with the tutorial and let me show you how to install the fusion build and get it done quickly. Im going to show you how to install the Indigo addon and possibly later show you how to install a repository using Fusion. If we have enough time. So lets get on with it. & BestBox has No affiliation with Kodi, and its Addons, Repos, or Builds. BestBox and does not support or condone any copyright infringement.
