Before the guide starts, we strictly recommend you to be safe while using Kodi. Therefore, we want you to read the disclaimer and WARNING notice found below.
The Easiest Way to Install Indigo Addon on Kodi in 2019
Installing Indigo is a relatively painless and short procedure. There are a few main steps:
- Add the Source of the repository you want to install. This allows Kodi to know where to find the add-ons you want to install.
- Install the repository to gain access to the add-ons.
- Install the add-on.
Let’s start by adding the source.
How to Add the Repository Source
Open Kodi. You should be on the Main Screen.
You’ve now successfully added the Indigo (Fusion) repository. You can now access all the add-ons in that repository.
How to Install the Indigo (Fusion) Repository
You’ve successfully added the Indigo (Fusion) Repository, which gives you access to the Indigo (Fusion) TV Repository. Now you have to install this repo. This is the crucial next step.
How to Install the Indigo Kodi Add-On
Now that you’ve added the source of the repository and installed the repository, you can access the Indigo add-on. Let’s begin.
You have now successfully installed Indigo Add-on for Kodi!
Where to find the Indigo Add-On
Sometimes you might be asking yourself, “Where is the Indigo addon?” In the future, you can find the Indigo Addon by accessing your Program add-ons. You can reach this screen from the Add-ons screen with no options selected on the left-side menu:
Or inside the Program add-ons menu (main screen > Add-ons > Program add-ons).
What You Can Do with Indigo Add-on
Indigo is a great way to explore add-ons conveniently and access technical information that might come in handy when troubleshooting.
Indigo Config Wizard
The Indigo add-on has an option that’s easy for beginners to use. It’s called the Config Wizard. It automatically configures Kodi with the best addons and goodies without a complicated process. You could end up spending hours and hours browsing everything that’s available in the repo if you’re not careful, so we highly recommend using this easy Config Wizard.
Indigo Addon Installer
Under the Addon Installer, one of the top features is the Featured Addons section.
Rather than spending tons of time browsing for addons, Indigo has a curated collection for you. You’ll see a variety of addons such as USTVnow Plus, UKTV Play, and Newsy, amongst a few more.
Aside from that section, you can also browse for Video, Audio, and Program Addons by alphabetical order, with each section divided by the letter that the addon starts with. Kodi Skins are also available, so you can easily install a popular Kodi Skin such as Confluence++. Thankfully, you can also Search add-ons if you know exactly what you’re looking for.

Useful Diagnostic Features
Many of the other sections are excellent for troubleshooting. A lot of times, when you ask for help on community forums, you’ll need to provide logs of what Kodi and the add-ons are doing to see if there are any specific error messages or other indications of what might be at fault. There are all sorts of diagnostic tools that Indigo provides.
For instance, The Maintenance Tools in Indigo are extremely useful.
Enter that section and you’ll see exactly how much storage space your cache, thumbnails, and packages are taking up, with an option to delete them. It’s a very fast and easy way to keep an eye on how much storage you can clear. Here, you can also enable automatic weekly maintenance of Kodi, enable auto maintenance at startup. You can even wipe all addons if you want to start fresh.
One of the features that a lot of beginner users may not know about but will appreciate is the Malicious Scripts Blocker. That comes enabled by default in the Maintenance Tools section.
Advanced users will definitely appreciate the Debugging Mode, which can also be found in the Maintenance Tools section.
Network Speed Test
The Network Speed Test is a fantastic tool to see if your Internet connection might be a bottleneck or the cause of an issue. You’ll get to Click the size of the file that you’re testing with. We recommend 100 Mb or 1Gb because it’s more accurate. Choosing small files to test can be misleading because the test might be too short and may show a much a higher speed than you can expect when streaming media content. By using a larger file, your test will run longer and be more accurate because the test will measure the sustained speed that you’re going to download at. At the end of the test, you’ll get an easy-to-understand report telling you what your Internet connection will be suitable for.
Backups are another robust tool that you gain access to when installing Indigo. You can back up all your Kodi files and folders with the Full Backup option, or you can also just back up without the database. Before you do that, you’ll need to Click a backup location (we recommend creating a new folder before going into Kodi, as you won’t be able to create a new folder from within the Kodi interface). You’ll also see options to restore and delete backups, all within the convenient interface that Kodi provides. And to top it all off, there are Auto Clean Options. This helps you keep your Kodi machine lean and optimized. This is truly a robust feature with granular settings that’ll be a delight to technical users who insist on having precise control over what they want their machine to do.
