Ares Project is a leading Kodi repo that has been around for quite some time. One of the best things about Ares Repo is that it is regularly updated and it offers a wide selection of options including Plexus Program Addon, Ares Wizard, Ares Music, Fitness, Cookbook, Sports, Ares Comedy, Fitness and much more. Here, we will take a look at the steps that you can follow to download and install Ares Wizard Kodi on the latest version of Kodi, which is Kodi Krypton 17.4 to 17.6, as well as Kodi Jarvis 16.1.
How to download Ares Wizard
There are two main methods to download Ares Wizard: Direct download using Ares Repo Zip file and install Ares Wizard with Kodi File Manager. We will go through these two options that allow you to download and install the addon.
Direct Method – Download Ares Repo on Kodi Krypton 17.4 and above
Before we check the steps required, it is important to mention that Ares is not supported by the Kodi team, since it is a third-party solution. You won’t get assistance from the Kodi developers since Ares is not an official release from them and it was created independently. It is also worth noting that third-party addons usually offer access to content that is copyrighted. The use of these addons is your choice and your responsibility, but you should always keep in mind the risks. If you don’t want others to be able to trace you and see what you do online, the best option is to use a VPN. VPNs protect your privacy and also allow you to access more variety of content since you can bypass restrictions. A VPN changes your IP address, adding anonymity and also lets you get around blocks that prevent you from accessing a wider selection of content. There are many great options that offer speed and top security, including ExpressVPN, IPVanish and PIA.
