IPTV & Catch-up TV Kodi add-on Mediaset is available to download through the Android Aba repository. There are two ways to install Mediaset to Kodi media center, either download it through the AndroidAba repository or simply download the Mediaset Plugin Zip. To make the installation easier I have used the second option.
How to Add Mediaset to Kodi in 4 steps
To install Mediaset on XBMC here is what to do:
- From your Home Screen click Add-Ons>Add-on Browsericon >Install fromZip file.
- Select the Mediaset plugin Zip file (video.videomediaset.v1.2.2).
- You will get the confirmation for Video Mediaset successfully installed.
- Video Mediaset should now be in your Video Add-ons section.
I will highly recommend using the second method and not using the Android Abarepository since it has multiple functionality issues. I tried installing through it too but faced issues installing Mediaset in the end.

Since the add-on has been developed by an unofficial third party there are no restrictions over the premium content.
