How to Install Uranus Addon on Kodi 17.6

In this guide, we will learn how to install Uranus Kodi addon. Uranus is one of the newer addons and it lets you stream movies, shows, and other video content. This plugin has an impressive collection from multiple streaming sources. I have been using it for some time and will not hesitate in saying that I often find it better than Covenant or other popular addons.

My reasons are simple! Uranus addon for Kodi gives me fewer streaming sources, but it clearly prefers quality over quantity. Most of its streaming links work for the most part. I don’t have to sift through the endless list of sources, hit and try a bunch of times to find the link that would finally start streaming. The other thing I love about Uranus is that it has more HD streams than others without a supplementary plugin like Real Debrid.

All in all, I am fairly impressed with Uranus addon on Kodi. I enjoy it, and I would like you to enjoy it too. Keep reading!

How to Install Uranus on Kodi 17.6

I am now going to tell you how to install Uranus on Kodi 17.6, the Krypton version. Most Kodi users have migrated to Krypton. But, if you still use Jarvis, I have the installation process outlined for this version as well. That’s later though. First, with the latest Kodi version.

Also, the method below is for Kodi on Windows 10. What I really like about Kodi is that its interface is largely the same across all platforms including smartphones, tablets, and Amazon Fire TV Stick. Therefore, the following process will work just as good on any device you may be using.

Let’s get started.

Part 1: Prepare Kodi to Install Uranus Addon

There is a security setting in Kodi that would not let you install any add-on you are sourcing from outside official Kodi Addon Repository. Uranus is also a third-party add-on, which we will install from an external repository. Therefore, we will need to change the security setting and enable the ‘Unknown Sources’.

If this gets you concerned about the safety of your device, have no worries at all. While it is true that there are some potentially unsafe addons, the one we are going to install is clean. I have tried it personally.

Here, is how you allow third-party add-on installation.

#1. Open ‘Settings’ menu from the Kodi home screen. You will find this option on the top left and looks like a gear or cog icon.

#2. Now, select and open ‘System Settings’ from the list of the options in the Settings menu

#3. Click Add-ons setting on the left sidebar (as shown in the image below)

#4. Switch on the Unknown Sources toggle

#5. When you see the following error message, ignore it as we have already established that Uranus is a safe add-on. Click, ‘Yes’ to proceed.

Now we are all set to install Uranus Addon on Kodi. In fact, you can install any third-party addon you like.

I always recommend my readers to switch this option off once they have installed the desired app. This keeps your device safer.

Part 2 – Add the Source for Uranus Kodi Addon

#1. Run Kodi and click ‘Settings’ on the top left of the home screen

#4. On the following window, click ‘’ and enter . Type the URL exactly as I have provided. This is the new URL and is guaranteed to work for the most part. In the event it doesn’t, you can use the old, alternative link

Hit ‘OK’ once done

#5. You also need to provide a name for this repo/source in the ‘Enter a name for this media source.’ You may enter any name of your choice. Make it relevant though, so that you may identify it later. For this article, I give it the name ‘BlamoRepo’.

#6. Click the ‘OK’ button once done.

Explore Uranus Kodi Addon

Run Uranus and you will see a long list of categories including Movies, TV Shows, Spotlight, TV Collections and many more. Each category is further divided into subcategories. For instance, when you open Movies, you see the options In Progress, Featured, Popular, New Movies, etc.

Select an option and you should be able to see the list of the available content.

Uranus has a solid collection of content. It may not be as huge as the more popular Covenant, but it is a work-in-progress. I am confident that more will be added to it soon.

You will find multiple stream sources for each title. Again, you will not find as many sources as you would on Covenant. But, the good thing about Uranus Kodi addon is that even though it offers a handful of streaming links, they are all from quality sources and have greater chances of working. After all, all you need is just one good source that can play a title smoothly and uninterrupted.

You will also find plenty of HD links.  In fact, for most titles majority of streams are in HD. That’s not the case with Covenant or Exodus.

There isn’t a lot left to say about Uranus Kodi addon. Of course, I would love to reiterate that it is probably the best addon at the moment as far as providing quality sources is concerned. I was nothing less than impressed when I started streaming from the links it provided. Not only does it aggregate Full HD, 1080 links, most of them work, most of the time. This is more than I can say for any other video add-on, even the more mainstream ones, like Covenant. Uranus addon for Kodi is not about offering dozens of streams, it is about providing the ones that really work. If you are looking for an incredible entertainment experience, go ahead and get Uranus on your Kodi app.
