Phoenix Addon Guide

Phoenix is one of the most popular add-ons for Kodi, and it is not hard to see why. This add-on has many benefits, including live tv from both the US and the UK. Just perfect for the average cord-cutter to stay current on regular channels. There are other channels and features, but the goal of our Phoenix review is to show you how to install this wonderful add-on.

How to Download and Install Phoenix for Kodi

If you already have Kodi installed, go ahead and open Kodi, and proceed to the System heading. Proceed to File manager, as shown by the green arrow below.

File Manager

Once you have gone to that screen, you want to click on add source as you can see by the green arrow.

File Manager

Now that you have clicked on add source, you will see the Add Files source box pop up. Click inside of the box where the word <None> is displayed. That will bring you to a screen like the one below.

File Manager

As you can see, you will need to enter exactly, and hit done.


Now, it is time to name the source. You can call it whatever you like, but we suggest calling this one fusion, or .fusion, just so you can find it easily. Next, hit the done and then press the ok button. Now that you have added fusion to the list, go back to the settings screen under the same heading, and select Add-ons.

Kodi Settings

That screen will bring you to the one you see below, and you will use the install from zip file option.

Now, look for the one you just added called fusion.


After you click on that option, it will bring up a screen that looks like this.

File Manager

  • start-here
  • xbmc-repos
  • xbmc-scripts

After clicking the one that says xbmc-repos, choose the English option. You will now see quite a few options. Fusion has many choices. However the one you want to pick for phoenix is the one labeled The version number is subject to change, but as long as you choose the root, you should be fine.


As you can see in this image, you will see an add-on enabled note in the lower right hand corner.


Now, go back to system settings, and  add-ons. This is when you will want to choose install from repository.

Kodi Repo

Depending on how many different repositories you have installed, you may see a number there. You will want to choose the one that says Addon Repository.


Next, choose video add-ons.


And then Phoenix.


After choosing that option, you will see the option to install. Go ahead and click the install button.


Once you do this, your screen will show that the add-on is enabled, and the the box in the lower right hand corner will say that phoenix (and others) is enabled.


And that is all you have to do to enjoy the numerous features of the Phoenix add-on for Kodi. No matter what you wish to watch, there is a good chance it is on this wonderful add-on.

Note: Phoenix is a banned add-on.  This means that the add-on is not supported by the XBMC/Kodi team and has been banned from mentioning on their forum.  The Kodi team does not limit what a user can install, but they ask that you not seek support on any of their websites.
