DeathStar is a collection of nearly 40 video addons that let you watch your favorite content such as shows, movies, live TV, sports, etc. This addon brings to you all of it together at one place. The most amazing thing about this addon is that it saves you the trouble of separately installing each addon. Yaou can thaink of DeathStar Kodi addon as a build. But, it comes with just preinstalled addons and does not make any changes to the Kodi skin.

You must have already heard that Blamo repository has discontinued and you cannot access the three very popular addons it provided – Neptune Rising, Uranus and Placenta. These were the most widely used video addons and now that they are gone, everyone is looking for new options.
DeathStar has been created by the collaboration of top 10 Kodi addon developers. You have every reason to give it a try. In this tutorial, I will take you through the step by step installation instructions of DeathStar addon on Kodi. Keep reading!
Installation Instructions for DeathStar Addon on Kodi 18 & 17.6:
Before you get on with the steps to install this assortment of addons, you will need to modify a security setting in Kodi. You would probably already know that you cannot install any third-party addon on Kodi by default. That’s a security measure. But, it can be bypassed. Here is how:
Go to the Kodi home-screen and open the Settings option. You need to click the gear/cog icon on the top-left
When you are on this screen, click System settings
Navigate to the left side of the next window and select the option Add-ons. When you do that, you see a new set of options on the right of the screen.
One of these options is Unknown Sources. This is the option that must be switched on. So, toggle the switch to the right and turn it on.
You will now be warned by Kodi about the risks of turning Unknown Sources on. That’s not exactly our concern. DeathStar is an incredibly safe addon.
Go ahead and click Yes
Alright! You are ready to install DeathStar addon on Kodi.
Step by Step Installation Process
Follow the steps below:
Open Kodi and again from the home screen access Settings
Now, click the option File manager on the following window

You should now see a repository zip file named repository.ukodi1-0.0.5.zip. Click this file.
Do you see a different version number? Don’t worry if it is not 0.0.5. The version number of the file may have changed. Click it anyway.
Wait for about a minute. You will see the ukodi1 Add-on installed. This means that the ukodi1 repository has been installed. We will now use this repository to install the DeathStar addon on Kodi
