How to Install Kodi on Nvidia Shield TV in 2024

By Novak Bozovic / April 7, 2022

One of the best things about Nvidia's Shield TV media streamers is that they run on Android TV. That gives you plenty of options when it comes to installing apps - and you guessed it, Kodi is one of those. We're sure you can't wait to get your hands on this home theater software, so let's talk about how to install Kodi on an Nvidia Shield TV.

As you're about to see, getting started with Kodi is incredibly simple. Even first-time users will feel right at home as soon as they open the app. However, if you're a complete beginner, here's our guide to learning the basics of Kodi. And now, let's jump right in.

ATTENTION

Kodi 19 ‘Matrix’ is the latest available major version of the application (Kodi 19.1Kodi 19.2, Kodi 19.3, and Kodi 19.4 were also released). Still, if you haven’t updated Kodi yet, know that the latest version breaks compatibility with a large number of add-ons.

You’ll need to wait for third-party developers to make their add-ons compatible with Kodi 19, which could take a while. We’ve seen some progress when it comes to add-ons from Kodi’s official repository. However, the situation is still very problematic for add-ons that come from outside Kodi’s repository.

Therefore, if you use many add-ons, stick to Kodi 18.9 for now. Keep in mind that downgrading from Kodi 19 to Kodi 18 can be a very tricky task to accomplish (even impossible in many cases).
