WARNING: Before You Continue…
Do you know that everything you do within Kodi might be visible to your Internet service provider? Actually, this applies to pretty much everything you do on the Web. These days, ISPs collect all kinds of personal data and share it with third parties. However, there is a way to stop this. You can use a VPN application to make sure you’re using Kodi as privately as possible.
VPN applications work by rerouting all your Web traffic through an encrypted tunnel. This makes your data unreadable by your Internet service provider. Also, VPNs get you a new IP address every time you connect to the Web. This means that your online presence and your physical location are both hidden. Finally, VPNs can keep malware away from your device and let you watch previously restricted content. We highly recommend using ExpressVPN.
Signing up for ExpressVPN has never been more affordable! Instead of paying $12.95 per month, you can opt for a special promotion and get this amazing VPN for only $6.67 per month! In addition, the annual plan comes with three additional months, free of charge. Sign-up for ExpressVPN and reap the numerous benefits it offers.

Before we turn our Kodi devices into a Cellar beast–filled with the add-ons that will flood our living rooms, it’s imperative that we double check if our copy of Kodi accepts third-party installations or not.
By default, Kodi doesn’t support any builds or add-ons from ‘Unknown Sources.’ It’s standard procedure to turn the filter off before installing third-party builds. If you have previously installed an add-on/build, chances are it’s already turned on. If not, here is a quick guide to turning on the third-party installations on your Kodi streaming devices.
- Launch Kodi on your device and locate ‘gear icon’ on the top left.
- Select SYSTEM and go to File Manager and click on it.
- Select Add Source.
- On the pop-up, go to the upper text field labeled None;
- Enter the following URL in the field – http://cellardoortv.com/wizard and select Done.
- On the lower text field, media Source, type CellarTV and select OK.
- Return to Home Screen and select Add-Ons from the left menu panel and click on the Package Icon at the top right corner.
- Now, click on Install from zip file.
- On the pop-up, select CellarTV.
- Now, select plugin.program.CellarDoorTVwizard.zip.
- Wait for some time for an Add-on enabled notification at the top right of the screen.
- Return to Home Screen and go to Add-ons. Hover over the Program Add-ons; you’ll see CellarDoor Wizard on the left spread, click on it.
- Select CDTV Builds.
- Now, choose the Build you would like to install based on your Kodi’s version.
- Select Install and wait for the process to complete. The installation will take some time, so be patient.
- After the download, reboot Kodi.
Note: After reboot, Kodi installs all the add-ons and update them, and this might take up to 10 minutes depending on your internet connection.
Congratulations, you’ve successfully installed CellarDoor TV Kodi Build, and it’s ready to use.
