The world of Kodi can be overwhelming at times. There are so many options available, and different ways to watch live TV. If you are looking for something to watch, there are many channels you may have access to. The Echo TV Guide addon will help by telling you what is on where so you will have an organized list. No matter what addons you have, you will know where everything is. In this guide, we will help you download, install, and use this great tool.
Support for the Echo TV Guide addon is provided by the Echo team, so it is unofficial. If you go to the official Kodi site and start asking questions, they won’t be able to help you. Also, please don’t mention the addon there either. Though Kodi is open source, it is understood that unofficial addons should not be talked about.

You should now see the entire list of video addons you have installed. Choose the one that says Echo TV Guide.
Now, wait a few moments for the addon to load, and aggregate all the other addons you have available.

It is also good because something you see in the guide may be an option you never thought about. Since Kodi and the guide are international, all available channels can be seen in one place.
