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, 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 18 Leia 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 Krypton it can be updated to Kodi 18 but any installed add-ons may disappear and need set back up.
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 the older version depending on the hardware the box has.
Kodi 18 Leia needs Android 5.0 lollipop or higher to install.
To see which version you have go to Settings–>About page.
