1channelIt’s come to our attention that a lot of our users are confused as to how to proceed with the installation of addons to XBMC once you have the base software already installed. Addons are basically additional features to XBMC that allow you to watch all kinds of content available online, such as movies and television shows for example, with 1Channel and IceFilms being the two most popular at the current time, however hundreds more exist.

Before we begin explaining how to install an addon, we’ll explain to you what the term repository means. You’ll always need to first install the unique repository which contains the specific addons you wish to install prior to installing the addons themselves. It acts as a sort of software container which contains the addon information and ensures automated updates. Once you have installed the repository you can then install the addon from within it.

Now, the easiest way to install a repository is through our Fusion Installer, which is basically a server based installer which allows you to install your desired repositories and addons directly from our online server, no need to download them or possess any technical knowledge whatsoever. Just continue reading this guide and you’ll be set in less than five minutes with no trouble at all.
