Kodi has become the most popular way to stream video content to an android TV box.
Kodi when combined with a good add-on, can stream most any type of videos that can be thought of.
While Kodi can be played on many platforms from a old computer to a Raspberry Pi 3, but android TV boxes have become the go to hardware.
Android TV boxes combine fast hardware along with a nice box that fits in with a TV entertainment center.
Installing Kodi into an android box is simple as it is in the Play Store and can be installed like any other app. It also can be downloaded from the main Kodi site and installed.
While installing Kodi itself is easy, most get confused when it is time to install the add-ons which are what let Kodi stream content.
With that in mind below are the steps to installing Kodi 17 Krypton and the popular Exodus add-on on your android TV box, the same will go for any android device.
If you have a older version of Kodi such as Jarvis it can be updated to Kodi 17 Krypton and settings should keep.
Of course things can always go wrong with any upgrade so there is no guarantee. Also if you have a very old Kodi box it may be best to stick with Kodi 16.1 depending on the hardware the box has.
To install Exodus into Kodi Jarvis the old instructions are at the bottom of the page.
Kodi 17 Krypton needs Android 5.0 lollipop or higher to install.
To see which version you have go to Settings–>About page.
