Platforms like Netflix, Disney+ or Pluto TV not available on all TVs. Either because you are using a Fire TV Stick, which for example does not have HBO, or because you are using a old version of android tv. Nowadays not having access to this type of platform from the TV is a chore, but fortunately there are alternatives like Kodi that allow you to add them.
And in addition to this, Kodi offers other advantages when viewing this type of platform. For example, it allows you to take screenshots (if the operating system you install it on allows it). It also offers you the option to customize the subtitles and, incidentally, it offers you all the content at the highest quality, something that is not guaranteed even in the web browser versions.
The steps to install Kodi on your Android TV
Before proceeding to insert any platform in Kodi, it is obviously necessary that you already have this application installed. For this you can go to the google playalthough you should know that the one found here is a previous version of the appsince it was outdated very recently.
However, we must tell you that it is still fully functional at practically all levels, including being able to add streaming platforms. In any case, if you prefer to have the latest version, you will have to download the apk. For this, we recommend you take a look at a post that we published and in which we told you precisely how to install Kodi outside of Google Play.

Of course, you must be clear that this it will only work if you have an active subscription to the platforms you want to add. This is precisely where the controversy with this application, since you will have to enter your passwords in a service external to the platforms. Nothing has to happen, but we only recommend it if you have no other way to install the official app on your Android TV.
That said, we are going to see the steps to follow, which consist of inserting a repository in Kodi that includes, among others, Disney +, Pluto TV and Netflix. The steps to follow for this are these:
