In this article, we will learn how to install Fusion on Kodi and how to install addons using Fusion. The method described in this guide works on all the Kodi supported devices including FireStick, Fire TV, Windows PC, Android smartphone, and tablets etc.
Kodi is a media player whose full potential is only explored through the compatible add-ons. The good news is that there are hundreds of addons out there for all kinds of needs and purposes. While video addons are the most popular, Kodi also supports various utility and maintenance addons that make this media player more effective. The only challenge is finding the right addon for your need.
Most of us usually look up for each add-on individually. When you have many addons to install, this method could be inconvenient at best. Thankfully, you don’t have to do it anymore. You can install Kodi Fusion, a source of tons of repositories and addons. Fusion addon was once taken down last year for a few months. But, now it is back and it is better than before.
Let me now show you how to add the Fusion source to Kodi. We will also learn how to install the Indigo add-on, which is further a source for a variety of addons. Later, we will also see how to install repositories using Fusion. Keep reading!

Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons / Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Kodi users are strongly advised to connect a VPN while streaming. A VPN for Kodi will bypass ISP throttling, Government Surveillance, and geo-restriction on popular Add-ons. I always connect ExpressVPN on all my streaming devices and I suggest you do the same.
ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
How to Install Repositories using Fusion on Kodi
Indigo isn’t the only add-on you can install through Fusion. In fact, Fusion has a huge collection of all kinds of repositories. I will now show you how to access Fusion’s library of repos and how to install them.
When you are on the Kodi home-screen, open Add-ons and click ‘Package Installer’ icon on the top-left. Now, click ‘Install from zip file.’ Next, click ‘Fusion’ source that we added earlier. As already, discussed, you will see the following three options.
This time, click ‘kodi-repos’. This is the place where all the Fusion repositories reside.
Kodi-repos is further divided into three categories:
You can explore the relevant repositories in each category. For instance, click ‘English’ and you will see the list of all the available repositories in the English language
In the same way, when you click ‘International’, you will find all the repos in the International languages.
Click the zip file of the repository you wish to install and Fusion will install it on Kodi for you.
Adding Fusion to Kodi seems like a good idea to me. It has worked out pretty well for me indeed. I can get most of the addons I need through one of the repositories Fusion hosts. I have also installed Indigo addon and it lets me install any addon I want that is not the part of Fusion library. Fusion for Kodi is especially recommended to those who keep installing addons regularly. I hope this article was of help to you.
