How to install the Kodi Twitch Add-on



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.

Twitch add-on for Kodi Overview

Thankfully, a Twitch add-on exists for Kodi so that you can watch all your favourite live streamers and games through the Twitch.TV site. The add-on works very well, and allows you to sign in, see if the streamers you are following are live, look at featured channels and look through different categories.

The Twitch add-on works quite nice with Kodi, and being able to control it all with your remote control is a must have. Signing into your Twitch account is also really easy, all you have to do is go to one URL. I personally think add-ons such as Twitch and YouTube really enhance the home cinema experience, and just make your Kodi build so much better.

You will find the installation instructions below, with more detailed instructions including images towards the bottom of the post. If you want to install this build on Kodi Jarvis (V16), the steps are relatively similar.
