How to Install Redemption Kodi Addon on Kodi 17.6

How to Install Redemption Kodi Addon on Kodi 17.6

I have explored dozens of Kodi addons over the last few years and found some really cool options to stream movies and TV shows. There are tons of addons out there and the new ones keep getting added rather too frequently. In fact, there are so many of them that I don’t even remember most of their names. But, Redemption is a Kodi add-on with a difference. It clearly outshines the herd and becomes your instant favorite.

I like Redemption Kodi addon for a variety of reasons. It has an excellent library of movies and TV shows. There is just about everything you can ask for. But, what makes Redemption better than the others is that it has a separate catalog of 4K and 3D movies. This is something that even the most popular Kodi addons do not offer. It also has a bonus ‘Redemption Fight Replays’ where you can stream the recording of the popular combat sports events including Boxing, MMA, Wrestling and more.

Redemption addon for Kodi is fast, easy to use and has a feel of freshness to it. And, it is also on our list of best Kodi addons.

In this article, we learn how to install Redemption on Kodi 17.6 Krypton. Keep reading!

How to Install Redemption on Kodi (FireStick / PC)

Before we get started, a small change in the security settings is required to allow Kodi to install third-party add-ons, such as Redemption. Here is what you need to do:

#1. From the Kodi home screen click ‘Settings’ on the top left. It is the cog/gear icon

#2. Open System Settings and select Add-ons on the left panel

#3. Allow ‘Unknown Sources’ by enabling this option

#4. Press ‘Yes’ when the warning message appears

Let me tell you that even though you have tweaked this security setting to allow third-party add-on installation, there is nothing for you to worry about. Redemption video addon for Kodi is trustworthy.

Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons / Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.

Kodi users should always use a VPN to protect their identity while streaming.  

I personally use and recommend IPvanish, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.

We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.

So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.

Step 1: Get the IPvanish subscription HERE.

Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the IPvanish app on your device.

Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.

Alright! You are now all set to install Redemption Kodi Addon. Let us get started.

All add-ons are available through some repository and Redemption is no exception. Kodi must first point to the source from where Redemption add-on will be added. So, here is what you need to do:

Step 1: Click Settings icon on the top left (the gear icon)

Step 6: Type in BuckyRepo in the field ‘Enter a name for this media source’ and click ‘OK’.

You can enter any name you wish to identify this source with later. I recommend using something relevant. This is why I chose this name. You may give it any other name you like.
