How to Install the CellarDoor TV Build on Kodi
The CellarDoor TV Build offers two different versions to choose from. The Dominus version is extremely powerful and offers all the bells and whistles you could ask for! Here’s how to install CellarDoor TV Build on Kodi.
With a well-designed interface, a wealth of content and many popular add-ons, the CellarDoor TV Build is definitely worth looking at. Some of the add-ons available include:
- UK Turks Playlists,
- Strictly HD,
- Wolfpack, and
- Bucky Movies among others.
This build is popular among novice and veteran users alike especially because of the detailed categories available. For example, in the Movies category, you can sort by resolution i.e. 3D, HD and 4K options.
There are multiple themes to choose from and with the Dominus build, you can switch between builds freely. The Dominus build is larger (431 MB) than its counterpart, Infusion (361 MB). Since you will be exposed to third-party add-ons, it is important to use a VPN.
Important to Know:
The governing institution for Kodi, XBMC, does not recognize unofficial/third-party add-ons as many of these provide access to streams containing copyrighted material.
Since net neutrality was recently thrown out, ISPs and the government are now allowed to indiscriminately monitor users’ web activity. This is why using a VPN service like ExpressVPN is highly recommended.
ExpressVPN obscures your IP address by running your session from its 1000+ servers in more than 60 countries to safeguard your online privacy and identity. Connection throttling by ISPs is avoided as they are unaware of your online activities and the VPN infrastructure gives users high-speed internet with unlimited bandwidth and unlimited server switching.
This is not the only reason for getting a VPN though. With ExpressVPN you’re able to bypass censorship and digital geo-restrictions as it’s possible to mask your computers IP address. Using local ExpressVPN servers in the country where the content is available is simple and easy to do.
ExpressVPN has software for almost all of the devices you can imagine and a single subscription lets you use the service on up five devices simultaneously. As a special offer to our readers, get 49% off the normal subscription price simply by clicking the link.
