This guide shows you how to install Kodi Vizio Smart TV.  This is actually a workaround, because the Vizio Smart TV operating system is not actually supported by Kodi.  So we essentially use an inexpensive Android TV device to add Kodi to our Smart TV.

Install Kodi on Smart TV

Unfortunately, the fact is that most Smart TVs do not support Kodi to be directly installed onto the Smart TV itself.  The absolute best, easiest, cheapest solution we have is to use a [easyazon_link identifier=”B00ZV9RDKK” locale=”US” tag=”arizonacaorg-20″]Firestick[/easyazon_link]or cheap Android TV Box ($31 on Amazon) to add super-smart capabilities to our Smart TV.  By super smart, I mean turn it into a full-fledged entertainment center by simply adding a cheap device to your TV.
