You will learn how to install RBTv Kodi addon in this tutorial. This addon is supported on all Kodi devices, including FireStick, Fire TV OS, Android TV OS, Windows, Mac, Smartphones (Android & iOS), Tablets, Kindle, and more.
What is RBTv?
RBTv is a third-party Kodi addon for live TV. This addon offers cable TV channels worldwide, including the USA, UK, India, Pakistan, Portugal, Canada, and more.
You can install this addon from The Warehouse Repository, an unofficial repository. The WareHouse is also home to LNTv, Elementum, The Promise, and other Kodi addons.
RBTv seems to be easy to use. It has a straightforward interface that lets you get started quickly. Therefore, we have added this addon to our list of Best Addons for Kodi.
Attention, Kodi Users!
Kodi Addons and builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free movies, TV shows, or sports. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect to a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
I personally use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3 months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.

Is RBTv Safe & Legal?
As mentioned, RBTv is part of the unofficial repository, The WareHouse. Since it is a third-party addon, it is impossible to say whether it is 100% safe or not.
However, certain indicators may offer peace of mind when using this addon.
For instance, I installed and used this addon on multiple devices. The antivirus software on my devices did not raise any flags. The software found no threats or malicious activities associated with RBTv.
I wanted to be more confident about it. Therefore, I scanned the zip file of the WareHouse repository with an online antivirus. Again, it did not show anything alarming and declared the file safe. Therefore, I will continue using the RBTv Addon.
Here is the screenshot of the scan:
On the legal front, unfortunately, we at FireStickTricks.com do not have ample resources to ascertain whether or not the RBTv addon has obtained the needed licenses to distribute the satellite TV channels from various countries.
I do not condone copyright violations. However, I would like you to be safe if you accidentally stream unlicensed content. Therefore, I recommend using ExpressVPN with Kodi whenever you use a third-party addon.
How to Install RBTv Kodi Addon?
The installation process of any Kodi addon will likely get lengthy and confusing. However, I have simplified the instructions by breaking them down into three easy parts as follows:
- Part 1: Allow Unknown Sources
- Part 2: Install The Warehouse Repository
- Part 3: Install the RBTv addon from the repository
Let’s get started now!
Legal Disclaimer: This tutorial is purely educational. FireStickTricks.com doesn’t own, host, operate, resell, or distribute any streaming apps, addons, websites, IPTV or services. The page contains some unverified services, and we are not certain whether they hold legal licenses to distribute the content. FireStickTricks.com does not verify the legality of each app/service in all regions. Do your due diligence if you use any of the unverified apps/services, and stream only content that is available in the public domain. The end-user shall be solely responsible for the media accessed.
Part 1: Allow Unknown Sources
You are installing this addon from an unofficial repository, The Warehouse. Such repositories host third-party addons like RBTv.
The default security setting of Kodi prevents the installation of third-party addons. However, you can quickly change this setting to allow installation from unknown sources. Here are the steps:
1. Open Kodi Settings by clicking the gear icon in the top-right corner of the home screen.
2. Click the System tile on the following window.
3. Click Add-ons in the options on the left menu bar. Next, click the Unknown Sources toggle on the right and turn it on. Leave it untouched if it is already on.
4. When prompted, click Yes to continue.
5. Click Update official add-ons from on the same window (optional but recommended).
6. Click Any repositories. By doing this, you enable Kodi to update your addons automatically from their respective repositories. Otherwise, you may need to update them manually.
Part 2: Install The WareHouse Repository
The WareHouse repository hosts the RBTv addon. Let’s install this repository. Here are the steps:
1. Click Settings again on the Kodi home screen (or press the back button once on the previous window).
2. Open the File manager tile on this screen.
3. Click Add source (or double-click if you use Kodi on a computer).
4. Click <None> on this popup.
5. Enter the following path or URL on this screen: https://tinyurl.com/twhr19
This URL is the shortened version of the relatively long URL https://warehousecrates.github.io/TheWareHouse. You can use any of them. Type the URL carefully to ensure no trouble during installation. Click OK.
Note: FireStickTricks.com is not affiliated with the individuals or entities who host this URL and the content therewith. This URL points to the source of the repository.
6. Now, you can see that the section Enter a name for this media source is automatically populated with the source name twhr19. Therefore, I am proceeding with this name.
However, you may use any other custom name. Make the name relevant. It will be needed later. Click OK.
7. Go back to the Kodi Settings (you may press the back button once on the previous screen). Click Add-ons.
8. Choose Install from zip file.
9. Click twhr19 or whatever source name you choose earlier.
10. Click the zip file repository.thewarehouse-x.x.x.zip. Here, x.x.x has replaced the file’s version number, as yours may differ from what the image displays.
11. Within a few moments, you should see the notification, The WareHouse Repository Add-on installed.
This is how you install the repository.
Part 3: Install RBTv Kodi Addon
You may now use the WareHouse Repository to install the RBTv addon. Follow the steps below:
1. Click Install from repository.
If you moved away from the previous window, navigate to Kodi Settings > Add-ons.
2. Click The Warehouse Repository.
3. Open Video add-ons.
4. Scroll down and click RBTv on the next screen.
5. Click Install in the bottom-right area of this window.
6. The RBTv addon will now start installing. You can see the download and installation progress on the screen.
When the process is complete, the RBTv Add-on installed message is displayed in the top-right corner of the window.
You have successfully installed RBTv addon on Kodi.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or 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, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of 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. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN app and Sign in using the email ID and password that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription.
Step 9: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your FireStick is now secured with the fastest VPN.
