How to install cCloud TV addon on Kodi
The installation process of any addon is always a bit long-drawn. Therefore, I am breaking it down into broad parts to ease you through the steps. Here is the overview of what you will do:
- Allow Unknown Sources: To download any third-party source addon, such as cCloud TV
- Add the source URL: To point Kodi to the location of the addon on the web
- Install the Kodil repository: The repository which hosts cCloud TV
- Install cCloud TV addon: From the Kodil repository
The steps that follow now will cover the above in exactly the same order as they are laid out:
1: Go to the Settings window from the Kodi home screen
Need to click the cog icon in the top-left of the screen
2: Now open the option System on your Kodi 18 Leia version
On the Kodi 17.6 version, it is System settings
3: Hover over Add-ons in the left menu on the window that follows next
4: On the right side of the same window, click Unknown Sources switch to turn it ON
5: Dismiss this warning message by clicking Yes
cCloud is a trusted, tested and safe Kodi addon

Either from the home screen like you did before or by pressing the back button once after enabling Unknown Sources
7: Open the File manager option

Kodi 17.6 users should go to Kodi home-screen, click Add-ons in the left menu, and click open-box in the top-left corner on the next window
13: Now choose the item Install from zip file
14: You must now see the name you added in Step 11 earlier (kodil in our case)
Go ahead and click it
15: A zip file is displayed on the next screen
The version number of this file may have changed since I wrote this guide
16: In probably less than a minute, repository installation confirmation is displayed in the upper-right section of this screen

18: Access the …Kodil Repository entry

So, these are the steps to install cCloud TV on Kodi.
Looks like you are all set to start watching your favorite content. However, do not forget that all your streaming activities and your online identity are still unprotected and exposed to your Government and your ISP. Streaming with third-party services may cause legal trouble.
Thankfully, you can easily protect yourself and go invisible from your Government and ISP by using a VPN. Whenever I am streaming with Kodi, I always connect to ExpressVPN and recommend the same to you.
ExpressVPN is the fastest and the most streaming-friendly VPN. It is also the most secure VPN.
With ExpressVPN, you get a 30-day money-back guarantee as well. Although I don’t see any reason why, if you do not like the service, you will get a full refund within 30 days.
Please remember that we encourage you to use a VPN to maintain your privacy. We do not condone breaking the copyright laws.
Before you start using Kodi for streaming, here is how you can protect yourself with ExpressVPN:
Step 1: Sign up for ExpressVPN Here
Step 2: Download ExpressVPN on your device by clicking HERE
Step 3: Open the ExpressVPN app on your device. Sign in with your account. Click the connect/power button to connect to the VPN
Great! You have successfully secured yourself with the best Kodi VPN.
How to access and use cCloud TV on Kodi
You will find all your installed Kodi addons on the main screen of the Kodi app. They appear in the Video add-ons section
When you are on the home screen, DO NOT click Add-ons in the left menu. Just Select it
You should now see cCloud TV Kodi addon in the Video add-ons category. Click the addon to open it
When the cCloud TV addon loads up, this is what you see on its first screen:
There are over a dozen categories to stream live channels from, including:
- All Channels
- Top 10
cCloud TV Kodi addon also has two on-demand sections:
- On Demand Movies
- On Demand Shows
The on-demand collection isn’t that big. We are not complaining though. cCloud TV is supposed to be an IPTV addon. Yet, you may find some interesting movies and shows here.
There is a Non-English/International category too if you want to stream live TV channels from outside the US
In the end…
cCloud TV is a decent option to watch your favorite TV channels. It has neatly categorized channels into familiar and popular categories for your easy picking. There are plenty of channels from the US, UK, and many other countries.
cCloud TV addon on Kodi offers smooth navigation and quick playback. The only drawback is that some of its main screen categories do not have any subcategories for proper organization of the content. For instance, when you open the Sports category, you would want to have the streams further organized into subcategories at least by sports types (such as basketball, baseball, football, soccer, etc.) So, that’s a bit disappointing. Everything else looks great.
