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.
How to Download and Install the Echo TV Guide
Before we get started, the first thing you need to do is download the zip file. You can find it by going to http://tdbrepo.com/. Once you do that, go ahead and open Kodi. We are going to use the Jarvis (16.1) version for this demonstration. Since we have already downloaded the file, we’ll start with the screen below. First, click on the System heading. You will now see the Add-ons screen.
Now, you will see a screen with five options. You will want to choose the option that says Install from zip file.
Next, browse to where you saved the file and click on it.
Wait for a few moments, and you will see a message stating the echo repo is enabled.
Next, click the heading that says Install from repository.
Now, there are two ways you can get to the addon. You can use Program addons or Video addons. For this case, we used Program Addons. Click on the choice that says Echo TV Guide. When prompted, click the Install button.
Again, wait a few moments. You will now see a notification message letting you know that the addon is enabled.
There you have it. Your Echo TV Guide addon is now installed and ready for use. Stay tuned for a usage guide to find out how to use the addon.
How to Use the Echo TV Guide Addon
To use the addon, you will need to navigate back to the home. Next, go to the Videos screen and click on it.
In the image below, there are three options. You want to choose the one that says Video add-ons. Because of the nature of this addon, you will also find it under programs. No matter which way you access it, the information is the same.
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. As you see in the image below, clicking on a show you want to watch will bring up several options to choose from. There are specific settings for channels, categories, and even the default stream you want to use.
And that is all there is to it. This is a great tool for cord-cutters, because you can watch live TV using the 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.
