Indigo

There are hundreds of Kodi addons out there. Discovering and installing them can sometimes be a bit of a hassle. Not so if you have the Indigo addon. For anyone who might be a bit confused: Indigo is the new name of what was once known as the Fusion Installer. If you landed on this page after clicking a link on another article for Fusion, these two addons are one and the same. 

This Kodi program connects you directly to the TVAddons super repository, taking a lot of steps out of the addon installation process. We mention this program quite often here at AddonHQ as the fastest method to install most of the popular addons, and we mean it! Here’s how to install Indigo on Kodi, and how to make the most of this excellent program

Benefits to Using Indigo

As mentioned earlier, the Indigo makes adding Kodi addons far easier. The normal process for adding Kodi addons (the “old school” way) follows the same process as we just used to install Indigo. As you’ll note, this process is not entirely difficult, but it can take a long time. Meanwhile, here’s the process for installing an addon with Indigo:

  • Let’s say we want to install a new sports addon, but we don’t know which one. We can open up Indigo, and go to SEARCH:

Indigo

  • And then just type in “Sports”:

Indigo

  • We now have several options:

Indigo

  • Let’s try to install “Big South Sports”. We click on it:

Indigo

  • Then we click “Install”:

Indigo

  • And it’s done:

Indigo

The whole process takes under 1 minute, while the process for finding new addons, their installation links, and installing them the “old school” way can take a long time. Indigo is one addon any regular Kodi user needs in their life. While not every addon is available through it, most of the popular addons are. This is a great place to start, and for beginners, should probably be one of the first addons you add before you download any others.

    You have https://fusion.tvaddons.ag but that did not work for me. I had to use http://fusion.tvaddons.ag

    But otherwise your steps/screenshots were more helpful than the indigo page. Thank you.

      Thanks for the comment and the heads up! We fixed the link for future visitors. Glad you found it helpful!

    Indigo would not install. I started at install from zip because I had previously added the fusion repo but when I clicked the plugin.program.indigo file nothing happened.
    Can I add fusion again?

    • Sam Cook

      You can try adding Fusion again. It might auto-upload to Indigo, it might not. Fusion might still work, but at some point it’s likely going to get dropped.

      In my case, under file manager I am seeing begin here, lodi-repos and kodi-scripts. But when I clicked on begin-here its showing big updates coming in next few days 🙁 . not sure why it used work fine. I just rebooted my kodi and start facing this issue. Any help??

      Note: My kodi version is 14.2.

      • Sam Cook

        Hi Raj, you’ll definitely need to update to at least 16.

        • Raj

          Yes I have downloaded 16 and still i am not seeing indigo/add on installer under begin here folder. But at list I can able to access exodus now.

          There is one more issue I couldn’t able to add aftershock even though I am seeing that on repository but when I clicked on that nothing shows up. Doest it mean they removed that add on???

          • Sam Cook

            Hi Raj,

            Last I remember, Aftershock wasn’t working. At least, from my own testing I haven’t been able to get it working the last few times I’ve tried it. I think Fusion/Indigo is still down (TVAddons servers went down last week), so that might be why you’re having issues there.

      • Sam Cook

        Fusion has also been down in the past week following the recent Dish Network lawsuit that affected Phoenix and ZemTV

    • Sam Cook

      Fusion is currently having some issues. I would suggest trying out SuperRepo for now, or installing your addons directly from their zip files or developer repos. If there’s a specific addon you’re looking for, check through our site as there’s a good chance we’ve covered the install.
