How to setup and install Phoenix on Kodi

With Genesis now off the table, Phoenix has become pretty much the first add-one that the community now goes to when they want decent, reliable content.

In fact, calling Phoenix an add-on is probably unfair – it’s more of a collection of add-ons, with each component adding something unique in the Kodi community. Want movies, TV shows or sport? How about videos of gigs or some stand up comedy? Whatever you need Phoenix is your first port of call.

Here’s how you get it up and running:

Phoenix Installation Tutorial

1. Start off by going to System > File manager

2. Click on ‘Add Source’


3. Click on ‘None’

4. Enter the following URL and click done.

Make sure that you get the URL correct – if it’s different to the URL above (or has spaces before or after the URL), Kodi will give you an error message saying that the location doesn’t exist.

5. Now chose the box at the bottom of the screen and enter a name for the media source. You can type in anything you like, but for the purpose of this tutorial, I’m going to type in TVAddOns.

6. Now go back to your home screen and select ‘System’
