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 you 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.
