How to Install TechStreams Fork Kodi Addon

TechStreams is a new Kodi fork that offers new features like Auto TV Scan, Exclusives, and the addition of the TechStreams TV Addons. TechStreams has always been a Kodi addon for movies and TV shows, but the project has also been working to add TV shows, Sports and Live Channels.

TechStreams Fork is a fork of the original TechStreams addon, which offers a slick new interface to the famous Exodus sports addon, as well as some extra features and customizations. If you’re like us you probably already use TechStreams on your Kodi installation, but have never installed the TechStreams addon itself.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to install the TechStreams Fork addon on Kodi. This addon works seamlessly on FireStick (2nd generation and 4K), Fire TV Cube, Android TV boxes, mobile phones, computers and other devices.

TechStreams Fork is a versatile Kodi addon that offers a wide range of content in the categories of movies, TV shows and live streaming. Of course, this is a derivative of the popular TechStreams addon. This addon is part of the Mancave repository.

The TechStreams Fork content library is constantly expanding. There’s always something new to see. It also attracts quality food. It also integrates with Real Debrid for even higher quality streaming. Registration of parcels is also possible.

The Tech Streams Fork Kodi addon has been added to our collection of the best addons for Kodi.

Update: The Tech Streams Fork addon is no longer working. The repo doesn’t work. Please try another addon from the list of best Kodi addons.

Attention KODI users: please read before continuing

Kodi addons / modules offer unlimited streaming content, but can also get you in legal trouble if you get caught watching movies / TV shows / sports for free. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN when streaming online. A good Kodi VPN can hide your identity, bypass government surveillance, block content, and ISP throttling (which also contributes to buffer-free streaming).

I use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device, including the Amazon FireStick. Get 3 months free and save 49% on annual plans. There is also a 30 day money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.

To install the TechStreams fork on Kodi

You can install the Tech Streams fork addon just like any other third-party addon. We need to start with Unknown Sources (a security option enabled before installing Tech Streams). Let’s deal with the unknown sources first:

– Go to the Kodi application and click on the gear icon in the top left corner of the main window. Kodi settings are open

– The settings window looks like this. In the lower right corner, click on System (or System Settings for Kodi 17.6).

– Now select the Add-ons item, which you can see in the left menu bar.

– You can now check whether the Unknown Sources item is enabled or disabled. If it is off/unplugged, press it; it will turn on.

– Please ignore this message as this warning does not apply to secure add-ons like TechStreams fork.

That’s it! Go to the next part and install the Techstreams Fork addon on Kodi.

Steps to install Techstreams Fork KodiAddon

The steps are simple, but can be confusing due to the way the Kodi application is configured. Make sure you perform each step in the same order. Here’s how:

1- From the main window, go back to the Kodi settings.

2- Now we open the file manager option

3- Then we click on Add Source (you can click on either side of this window, as there are two).

4- Click <None> in this small window, which will be replaced by the source URL in the next step.

5. Enter the following URL or source path in the appropriate field:

Enter the URL carefully and check it after you have entered it.

Press OK.

6- You will see this pop-up again. Highlight or click on the section where you want to specify the media source name.

I will call this source TechStreams. You can do the same or choose a different name (we will use this source name later in step 9).

Press OK.

7- Now you can either hit the back button once or go to the settings screen from the main window of Kodi.

Click on Add-ons

Message: If you have Kodi 17.6, the steps will be different. Go to the main window, click on Add-ons in the left menu and click on Open Box in the top left corner of the next window.

8- When this window appears, click on Install from zip file.

9- You can now see TechStreams or any other media source name you specified earlier. Go ahead and click it.

10- Now we click on the file to install the Mancave repository

11- After a minute, you will see a message in the upper right corner about installing Man Cave Repo.

12- Now we open Install from repository

13- Next we go to the Man Cave repo repository which we installed

14- Go to Video Accessories

15- Find the TechStream fork and click on it.

16 – Press the Set button

17- When the Advanced Tools window appears, click OK.

Message: This window will only appear if you are using Kodi 18 Leia

18- Now we wait. Kodi TechStreams addon may take a minute or two to complete

When the installation is complete, the message TechStreams Fork Add-on installed will appear in the top right corner of the window.

Well, that’s it then. You have successfully installed the TechStreams Fork addon on Kodi.

Before you start streaming video with Kodi addons or modules, I want to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and the government. This means that streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live broadcasts and sports) can lead to legal problems.

Fortunately, there is a reliable way to hide all your streaming activities from your ISP and the government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN masks your original IP address and helps you bypass Internet monitoring, ISP restrictions, and geographic content limitations.

Personally, I use and recommend ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all types of applications and streaming devices.

OPINION: We do not encourage copyright infringement. But what if you accidentally upload content from an illegal source? It is not always easy to distinguish between a legal and an illegal source.

So before you start streaming on Kodi, read here how to get VPN protection in 3 easy steps.

Step one: Purchase your ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. This means you can use it for free for the first 30 days. If you are not satisfied with the service (which is unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.

Step two: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN application on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have included the exact steps below, starting with step 4.

Step three: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That’s it. Now your connection is secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.

The steps to install Kodi VPN on Fire TV devices are described below. If you have other broadcast devices, follow steps 1 to 3 above.

Step four: Sign up for ExpressVPN HERE (if you are not already a subscriber).

Step 5: Go to the Fire TV Stick home screen. Click the Search button and then the Search option (see figure below).

Step six: Type expressvpn into the search bar and select when it appears.

Seventh step: Click on the Download button.

Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN application and log in using the username and password you created when you purchased your ExpressVPN subscription.

Step 9: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That’s it. Now your FireStick is protected with the fastest VPN.
