Cerebro ShowBox for Kodi Pairing

It’s all about those sources that require pairing like openload. How many addons you can think of needing you to open a web page to pair your device with the streaming source. It’s a system that used to allow streaming suppliers to get some revenue by showing ads when clicking their pairing page.

Thanks to Cerebro Showbox Kodi addon to end this annoying phenomenon. It doesn’t rid you of the need to pair but makes it considerably easier. Here’s how it works.

When you select the option, a list or services is displayed.

Search Movies & TV Show

The easiest option is to go with the QR Code feature. Click any of the first links to get a QR code. Scan the code and open the proposed site. Click I’m not a robot and then click the Pair button at the bottom. You should do that for all the five services or, only for the services you’re planning to use.

Or, you can also click the website link. It works the same except launching a browser and open the pairing page. The plus point is that you don’t need an extra device but to have a browser on your Kodi box, some don’t. To make the feature even more accessible, it is present at the top throughout the addon.

Sky Cinema On Demand – A Feature Not To Be Missed!

This feature is as exciting as it is rare. Opening the section exposes a list of 11 Sky channels including Sky Action or Sky drama, Sky Comedy, Film4, and Film4 + 1 channels, have a look!

Sky On demand

It is the currently playing title on the respective channel, but hold on! Clicking any section won’t start a live IPTV stream; instead, you get the list of sources that the movie is available. Click any source to start. The significant advantage of this is that you can watch movies from the start, even if the actual broadcast is over.
