Install a new addon to kodi from a zip file on an android tv box

A quick and easy guide how to install an add-on from a zip file into kodi (this is done on an android tv box but is the same for any device running kodi but with slightly different paths to downloaded files)

Ill use the uk music video jukebox add-on as an example in this guide but any kodi addon .zip plugin uses the same process to install…

First off go to the kodi addons website of your choice here we are using xbmc.org/addons…

Click here to visit the site (Opens in a new window to a page that looks like this…)

Click the plugin.video.ukmvjb-1.0.0.zip to start the download when it has finished downloading (see below)

You don’t need to open the file you have downloaded just yet so close the browser and open kodi.
