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.

Man Cave Overview

This post will guide you in installing the Man Cave build for Kodi Krypton (V17). Man Cave uses a design which is similar to Aeon Nox, and whilst it is suitable for Kodi Krypton, it’s design is more tailored towards Kodi Jarvis (V16). However, let’s get to it!

It’s a great build content wise. It has an entire Exodus section, which is arguably the best add-on that is available for Kodi currently. This gives a lot of easy navigation to get to a lot of hot places such as movie genres and people watching. It has a consistent house style too, so it doesn’t look too bad on the big screen.

If you have any issues with this build, we’d advise you to not ask on the official forums. Leave a comment below if you’d like, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible if you’re having an issue.
