How to Install IPTV BONANZA Addon on Kodi
Before we start, you need to prepare Kodi for third party installations. You don’t have to do much, just adjust a security setting to enable the installation of third-party add-ons on Kodi. Third-party add-ons, such as IPTV Bonanza, are add-ons that come from outside the official Kodi Addon Warehouse.
Here’s what to do
# 1. Open Kodi and then from the home screen open the Settings menu. The settings icon is placed at the top left under the Kodi log and it looks like a gear
# 2. When you open Settings, you will see the following list of options; click on ‘System Settings’
# 3. In the system settings, you will see some options in the left column. Click on ‘Add-ons’ here. Now you should see ‘Unknown sources’ on the right. We need to turn it ON.
Drag the switch next to Unknown sources to the right and turn it ON
# 4. This is now the prompt or warning message you will see next. You can ignore the warning because IPTV Bonanza is safe.
Click ‘Yes’ to continue
Now you can install IPTV Bonanza Kodi addon.
Installing one addon on Kodi. But the process involves several steps and things can get a bit confusing. Therefore, I will split the process into different stages or parts. This way you know exactly what you are doing.
Here’s how the process is distributed:
- Step 1: Add the source to Kodi
- Step 2: Install the Maniac Repository from the source
- Step 3: Install IPTV Bonanza Kodi addon from the Maniac Repository
Now we will go through each section one by one
Step # 1: Add the source to Kodi
Adding the source simply means that Kodi points to the server location from which it will install the repository. Here’s how it’s done:
# 1. Open Kodi and then click Settings again
# 2. In the next set of options, click on ‘File Manager’
# 3. You should now see the ‘Add Source’ option on the next screen (see the image below). Click on it to continue
# 4. This is the window that appears next. As you can see, there is an option there. Click it
# 5. In the new window, you need to type the source URL.
Type exactly http://catoal.org/Repositorios/
Typos are common when entering the URL here. Be careful or you won’t be able to install Kodi IPTV Bonanza live TV addon. Check the URL again and then click ‘OK’
# 6. Now highlight the ‘Enter a name for this media source’ field and type the name of the source. You can enter any name by which you want to identify this source.
I keep the default ‘Repositories’
Now click on ‘OK’ again
You have successfully added the source to Kodi. Now we can proceed to the next part.
Step 2: Install the Maniac Repository from the source
A repository is a place where add-ons are stored. IPTV Bonanza Kodi addon is stored in the Maniac repository. That is what we are going to install now. Follow the steps below.
# 1. Go to the Kodi home screen. In the left column, you will see a list of options. Click on ‘Add-ons’
# 2. Next, click on the top left icon that looks like an open box (like the Dropbox icon). This option is called “Package Installer”
# 3. Now go ahead and click on ‘Install from zip file’
# 4. In the next window, you will see the list of all the resources you have added. Scroll down a bit and click on ‘Repositorios’ (that’s the name I entered earlier for the source. If you entered a different name for it, choose accordingly)
# 5 You should now see some zip files. Click on repository.Maniac.zip
# 6. Kodi now starts installing the repository. But you will not see a progress meter. Just wait for the ‘Maniac Repository add-on installed’ notification that appears at the top right of the screen
Maniac Repository is installed. Now the next part will cover the installation process of IPTV Bonanza.
Step # 3: Install IPTV Bonanza Kodi Addon
What you will do is locate the IPTV Bonanza addon in the Maniac repository and install it from there. The steps are as follows:
# 1. If you continue from the last step of Part 2, click on ‘Install from repository’. If you’ve changed the window, go back to the Kodi home screen and then add-ons followed by the package installer icon and then ‘Install from repository’
# 2. You should now see the list of all installed repositories on your Kodi. Click on ‘Maniac Repository’ you just installed
# 3. Now click on ‘Video Add-ons’
# 4. Go ahead and click on ‘IPTV Bonanza’
# 5. You should now see the following screen. Click ‘Install’ at the bottom right
# 6. Wait for the message ‘IPTV Bonanza add-on installed’. It will take no more than a few minutes to install this Kodi addon
# 7. You can now return to the Kodi home screen, where you can navigate to Add-ons> Video Add-ons. Here you will find IPTV Bonanza Kodi add-ons among your other add-ons (see image below). Click on IPTV Bonanza and start watching live TV channels for free
By following the process and the steps above, you can get IPTV Bonanza in minutes. I installed this addon probably a few months ago and have kept it ever since. What I like about IPTV Bonanza addon for Kodi, it has a huge collection of live TV channels from all over the world. What I don’t really like is that the category and channel list are presented haphazardly. There are hundreds of channels, but it’s not always easy to find what you really want to watch. I really wish the arrangement was more organized. That said, I visit this addon from time to time because it gives me the content that many other add-ons cannot. If you can work your way through the mismanaged list, I’m sure you will enjoy this live TV addon. For questions or suggestions, don’t hesitate to fill us in in the comments section.
