In this guide, I’m going to show you how to install the Resistance addon on Kodi. The installation process works on all your devices that support Kodi. I installed and used it on FireStick, Android smartphone, Windows PC, etc.
I am constantly looking for new Kodi addons for live TV. That’s because there is none addon that offers all the channels I want to watch. The other reason is that free live TV add-ons on Kodi (and even the free live TV apps) are often unpredictable. Sometimes they only pick up a handful of playable items streams and sometimes you get a lot of it. That’s why I always have several such add-ons on my Kodi.
Resistance addon for Kodi is one of the new additions to my list of live tv addons. It looks good so far. It mainly focuses on the Spanish channels, but there are also some English channels. Resistance is a lightweight addon with different working channels and streams. It felt like a good idea to keep it. If you enjoy watching live TV on Kodi, you might want to check it out too. This guide Will show you how to install resistance addon on Kodi. Keep reading!
UPDATE: This addon does not work now. Try other add-ons from our Kodi Add-ons list.
Steps How to Install Resistance Kodi Addon
Before we start, there is one small thing we need to sort out. As you probably already know, Resistance is a third party addon for Kodi. This means that it is not part of Kodi’s official repository. Kodi allows you to install third-party add-ons, but only if you have given permission to do so. So follow the steps to give the necessary permission:
# 1. Run Kodi on your device and then click on the Settings menu by clicking on the gear icon at the top left of the home screen
# 2. If you see the following options, click on ‘System Settings’
# 3. On the left, you will see a series of options. Click on ‘Add-ons’. You should now see the related options on the right and one of them is ‘Unknown sources’. This is the option you should enable by pulling the switch to the right
# 4. When you turn it ON, the following warning message appears. Don’t worry like Resistance Kodi addon is safe. So click on ‘Yes’.
Kodi is now ready to install the Resistance addon. That’s what we’re going to do next.
The process I go through involves several steps. But I assure you that it is easy if you follow each step in the right order and carefully. For more clarity, I divide the process into the following two parts:
- Part 1: Add source for resistance addon on Kodi
- Part 2: Install Resistance Kodi addon from the source
Part 1: Add source to Kodi
Because we are going to download the resistance addon on Kodi from the internet there must be a source where we get it from. Follow the steps below to point Kodi to that source:
# 1. Open Kodi and click the ‘Settings’ option on the home screen again
# 2. Now click on ‘File Manager’ from the next set of options
# 3. You should now see the ‘Add Source’ option, which appears on both the left and right. You could click on anyone and it will lead you to the same screen (as you can see in the image below I clicked on the right one)
# 4. If you now see this window, click on the option ”
# 5. Enter the source URL http://resistance.es/info/
This is the URL that Kodi points to the source. So type it exactly as shown. Click ‘OK’ to continue
# 6. The next thing you need to do is enter the name of the source you added with the URL. It can be any name you want. I’m going to make it simple and relevant by calling it ‘resistance’.
Press ‘OK’ when you are done
Now the source for Resistance Kodi addon is added. Now we will see how to install resistance addon on Kodi.
Part 2: Install resistance from the source
In this section, we will first install the repository that contains Resistance addon and then we install the addon from the repository. Do not worry, it will be simple. Here are the steps:
# 1. You’ll need to be on the Kodi home screen again to do this. From there click on ‘Addons(it’s one of the options in the left sidebar)
# 2. Select and open the package installation icon in the top left of the next screen. This icon looks like an open box as you can see in the image below
# 3. Then open ‘Install from zip file’
# 4. When this window appears, scroll down a bit and click on ‘resistance’. This is the name of the resource you added in the previous section. If you have entered a different name, choose accordingly
# 5. Then click on the file named ‘repository.resistance.zip’
# 6. You will now be returned to the previous screen. Wait a minute and you will see the ‘Resistance repo’ addon installed ‘notification in the top right corner.
Stay on this window.
# 7. Now we are going to install the Resistance Kodi addon from the repository we just installed. So click on ‘Install from repository’
Note: If you don’t see the screen in the image below, go back to the Kodi home screen and then navigate to this screen from Add-ons> Package Installer
# 8. Click on ‘Resistance Repo’ in the list of installed repositories on Kodi
# 9. Now open ‘Video Add-ons’
# 10. Click on ‘Resistance’ in the next window (see the image below)
# 11. You should see the install button at the bottom right of the next window. Click it to install the Resistance for Kodi
# 12. Again, you will be taken back to the previous screen. Just wait a minute for the ‘resistance add-on installed’ notification (as you can see it appears at the top right)

# 14. Here’s how the main screen of the Kodi resistor addon resembling. What you see in the image below are the different live TV categories. Select one of the categories and start watching live TV on Kodi
So, here’s how we install Resistance addon on Kodi 17.6 Krypton. I have found a lot of content in this addon in Spanish. But when I dug a little further, I also found cool English stuff. Resistance is a good choice for those who want to watch live TV via Kodi. It doesn’t really have a large collection of channels, but I found it quite satisfying. Even though resistance may not become your primary concern addon it can be a good alternative for live TV. It is free and therefore there is no harm in trying it out. How did you like this addon?
