  1. Search for PureVPN.
  2. Select the PureVPN option once you see it. 
  3. Install the VPN app on Kodi.
  4. Sign in using your login credentials.
  5. Connect to any country and your IP address will remain hidden.  

Enjoy Feel-Good Movies on Kodi…

Kodi is the best place to watch any movie title or TV show that you want no matter where you live. If you can’t find a few add-ons because of regional limitations, use a VPN app to get access in your country. With PureVPN’s Kodi add-on, you can easily access any Kodi addon and say ‘adios’ to the geo-limitations.
