What is Kodi Pulse Build?

Kodi Pulse Build is one of the best arrangements of TV Addons you can install in Kodi.

  • Pulse Build lets you instantly start watching the latest movies, using the auto-populated menu at the top of Pulse’s homescreen.

Pulse build contains all the best movie addons, TV Addons, Live TV (IPTV) addons, and all kinds of extra goodies to play with.  Here’s a run-down:

  • There’s a menu at the top of the screen which auto-displays all the latest movies available to stream
  • The “usual” horizontal Kodi menu is still prevalent across the center of the Pulse build home screen
  • Below the normal Kodi menu is a “secondary” menu to show sub-menu items, such as Genres
  • At the bottom of the Pulse build graphical interface (“theme”) is one last menu to show you the TVAddons you can choose to watch.

So, all told, Pulse Build has at least 4 main menus.  This means you have TONS of options for great TV shows and movies to watch.
