How to Install the XvBMC REPOsitory for Kodi – Simple Steps

XvBMC hosts many of our favorite addons. Some TV addons they have taken in a temporary capacity while those add-ons seek new homes after the anti-piracy shake-down last week. From the best movie and television show TV addon Covenant to the best sports Kodi add-on SportsDevil, XvBMC carries a huge selection of top quality third-party plugins.

The Kodi third-party landscape undulates and writhes with ever-changing players upon the field. Here, we present one of the unsung heroes in the scene. XvBMC has taken in one of the greatest third-party Kodi TV addons in existence, Covenant. They’ve given hope that some developer will take up the torch and further its development. Its the tear jerking, heart wrenching story of a homeless waif in the throes of despair and the guiding hand that pulled them from certain destitution. Be sure to check in with the KFire TV home page to keep up with the latest news and greatest developments in home entertainment.

Be Careful

Always use a highly secure VPN when utilizing third-party Kodi TV addons. After the concerted efforts of the MPA and ACT last week, I’d think everyone gets it now. Your internet activities are seen by anyone caring to look. That you appear to be accessing the internet from , is enough information to get less scrupulous hackers started in on you. This includes private and government agencies, and even your own ISP. The number of online identity thieves grows in number every day. Your information and activities get digitally recorded unless you access the internet from within a secure VPN.

Install the XvBMC Repository in the same manner as any other. Set the source up within Kodi so it knows where to find the repository file first. You should look around at what they have to offer once you get the XvBMC Repository installed. I think you’ll find it to your liking.

  6. When you move over to the OK button, the file will not appear to be selected anymore. This is just a visual glitch within Kodi. The status bar in the bottom og the dialog box still shows it selected, so go ahead and click on OK

The XvBMC REPOsitory and a VPN can make you happy



  1. Hi Christopher,

    The Firestick IPVanish app is free, but their service is not, though it is really inexpensive. I’ve tried many “free” VPNs and know from experience that there is no such thing. The “free” VPN services must monetize their endeavors somehow, and I don’t want them using my data to do so. IPVanish encrypts your data and doesn’t log your activities, let alone sell your browsing history to third parties to pay the bills. Many of the “free” VPN services have to do this to stay afloat.
