How to Install Resistance Live TV Addon on Kodi 17.6

How to Install Resistance Live TV Addon on Kodi 17.6

In this guide, I am going to show you how to install the Resistance addon on Kodi. The installation process works on all your devices that support Kodi. I have installed and used it on FireStick, Android smartphone, Windows PC etc.

I am constantly looking out for new Kodi addons for live TV. That’s because no single addon offers all the channels I want to watch. The other reason is that free live TV add-ons on Kodi (and even the free live TV apps) are often unpredictable. Sometimes they fetch only a handful of playable streams and sometimes they get you a whole lot of them. Therefore, I always have multiple such addons on my Kodi.

Resistance addon for Kodi is one of the new additions to my list of live-TV addons. So far, it looks good. It primarily focusses on the Spanish channels, but there are some English channels too. Resistance is a lightweight addon with several working channels and streams. It felt like a good idea to keep it. If you like watching live TV on Kodi, you might also want to take a look at it. This guide will show you how to install Resistance addon on Kodi. Keep reading!

How to Install Resistance Kodi Addon

Before we begin, there is one little thing we need to take care of. As you would probably already know that Resistance is a third party addon for Kodi. This means that it is not the part of Kodi’s official repository. Kodi lets you install the third-party addons, but only when you have given it the permission to. So, follow the steps to give the necessary permission:

#1. Run Kodi on your device and then click Settings menu by clicking the cog icon on the upper left of the home screen

#2. When you see the following options, click ‘System Settings’

Kodi is now ready to install the Resistance addon. That’s what we are going to do next.

The process I am going to take you through involves several steps. But, I assure you that it is easy if you follow each step in the right order and carefully. For more clarity, I am dividing the process into the following two parts:

  • Part 1: Add Source for Resistance addon on Kodi
  • Part 2: Install Resistance Kodi addon from the source

Let’s get started now.

Attention: Kodi Addons bring unlimited streaming content, but could also get you in a legal trouble. Kodi users must use a VPN to hide their identity while streaming movies / TV Shows / Sports. Moreover, many popular Addons are geo-blocked and will require a VPN to work.

I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN which is the best VPN for Kodi. You can get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans.

Part 1: Add Source to Kodi

Since we are going to download the Resistance addon on Kodi from the internet, there’s got to be a source from where we get it. Follow the steps below to point Kodi to that source:

#1. Open Kodi and click ‘Settings’ option yet again on the home screen

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 ExpressVPN, 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 ExpressVPN subscription HERE.

Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN 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.

So, here is how we install Resistance addon on Kodi 17.6 Krypton. I found a lot of content in this addon in Spanish. But, when I dug a little further, I found some cool English stuff too. Resistance is a decent choice for those who wish to watch live TV through Kodi. It doesn’t have a really big collection of channels, but I found it quite satisfactory. Even though Resistance may not become your primary addon for live Tv, it can serve as a good alternative. It’s free and hence there is no harm in trying it out. How did you like this addon?
