How to install Castaway Live TV on Kodi Krypton



IPVanish - The Best Kodi VPN

Before we start

PwrDown highly recommends you use a VPN when using Kodi. IPVanish is one of the only top tier VPNs and it’s tailored specifically for Kodi users. It works on almost all devices including the Amazon Fire Stick. As stated on their site, using IPVanish will:
  • Mask your IP Address & Hide your streaming habits.
  • Prevent your ISP from spying on you.
  • Make your online presence anonymous.
  • Allow access to blocked add-ons & content from other countries.

Castaway Add-on Overview

As we all know, there’s been a few problems in the Kodi community with a few add-ons as of late. Thankfully, the Castaway add-on is still working. However there is a new method for installing it, and it may be a bit confusing to some.

Honestly, Castaway does still work. It’s not as good as it once was that’s for sure. But it works. Even if you don’t get round to using it permanently, maybe it will be useful to have in your build at least once. I gave this a test, and it seemed to be very hit or miss. Either way, we’ll provide you with the instructions so you can try it yourself. Maybe it will be updated by the developers sometime soon.

This add-on will provide you with various sources which provide their own Live TV, similar to a middle man. The issue with this is some of the sources just refuse to work sometimes, making the add-on a little redundant. Castaway provides content from reputable sources such as FilmOn (which is still working). The Castaway Add-on for Kodi also hosts a lot of on demand content, such as Sports.
