How to Install Indigo Addon on Kodi

Without a doubt, Indigo is the go-to add-on you’ll want to install with Fusion, and it’s why we’ve dedicated an entire section explaining how to install it. We’ll now explain how to use it. 

Indigo is versatile addon and provides you with a range of tools, utilities, and functions to use within Kodi. Basically, it’s an addon installer for Kodi that gives access to various applications from within its library—like movie addons, TV addons, and much more.

If you see nothing you like there, you can always install addons outside of its library by using the link to a zip file. To do this, select ‘Install Zip from Online Link’ and use your remote to input the URL. From there, Indigo will immediately install the addon.

Are Indigo and Fusion Kodi Addons Legal and Safe to Use?

Streaming content from Kodi Addons or Kodi Builds is visible to your internet service provider—ISP—and any government communications agency. This is important to know because streaming content with copyright without payment is illegal nearly everywhere in the world. That includes live TV, live Sports, PPV, TV shows, and free movies. Watching any of this content for free can cause you some legal issues.

That is, unless you hide your IP address from your ISP and the government. Fortunately, there are a lot of great VPNs for Kodi out there. VPNs hide your IP—internet protocol address—and allow you to watch content freely without geo-restrictions, throttling, or surveillance.

Install ExpressVPN for Safe Browsing

The best Kodi VPN available now is ExpressVPN. It’s the most secure and fastest VPN available that’s compatible with a wide range of devices and streaming applications. It also runs on Windows, MacOS, and Linux if you want to stream from your computer. 

It’s easy to stream illegal content unintentionally, so using a solid VPN like ExpressVPN is always your best option to stay safe while streaming.

Follow the instructions below to put ExpressVPN on your device before you stream.
