Gateway Kodi Build



Kodi Gateway Build

The Gateway Build is a relatively obscure build, however that doesn’t mean it’s not a good one to try out!

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.

Gateway Build Overview

The Gateway Build for Kodi is a relatively good one. It’s very organised and it’s really simple to navigate through. The only issue I have had with this build is the sub menu can be hard to see unless you hover over it. It’s also a very lightweight build, so theres no reason it wouldn’t run on smaller devices like Amazon Firesticks or Raspberry pi’s.

The Gateway Build has categories for All in one, Apps, Favourites, Hidden Gems, Kids, Movies, TV Shows, Music, Power, Sports and System.

This guide is for Kodi Krypton, and the steps below are listed for the Estuary skin. If you have any problems with this build, feel free to leave a comment below and we’ll reply. You can also check out the Gateway Facebook group here for support.
