This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to install Kodi for Mac computers.
Installing Kodi on your Mac makes it simple to use this powerful application, especially when you’re traveling.
Kodi on your Mac will allow you to watch Movies, TV Shows, Live TV channels, sports, and more.
Kodi is also listed as one of the Best APK’s by TROYPOINT.
Because Kodi is not available in the Apple App Store, we must install the application from the official Kodi website.
Using an Android emulator such as BlueStacks is another option to install APKs like Kodi on your Mac.

For installing Kodi on other popular streaming devices, we would need to “side-load” the application as seen in our Jailbreak Firestick tutorial.

Protect Yourself With A VPN
TROYPOINT suggests protecting yourself with a VPN when using Kodi to ensure that your Internet Service Provider (ISP), government, and add-on developers aren’t logging your streaming activity.
After testing several VPN providers using Kodi, there was one that stood above the rest in terms of speed, reliability, compatibility, etc. which I discuss in the guide below.
