This is a pretty cool trick that will make it so that the latest episodes of your favourite TV shows are automatically displayed on your Kodi home screen. It will make things a lot simpler and make your Kodi feel more like Netflix.
We’re now going to walk you through creating a new Trakt list, subscribing to your favourite TV shows, and then integrating that list into your Kodi library. Stream All The Sources (or SALTS) makes this all very simple and intutitive.
Step 1: Login to your Trakt.tv account using your computer’s web browser.
Step 2: Navigate to the user icon at the top right corner of the page, then select the Lists menu.
Step 3: Click on the ADD LIST function.
Step 4: Set the Name of the list to TV Shows (or Movies), set the PRIVACY setting as Public and the DEFAULT SORTING as the Title option, then press the red SAVE LIST button at the bottom.
Step 5: Navigate to the Add-ons tab under the VIDEOS menu within Kodi.
Step 6: Launch the Stream All The Sources addon.
Step 7: Select the TV Shows category.
Step 8: Click on the My Lists menu.
Step 9: Highlight the TV Shows list that you just created through your Trakt.tv account.
Step 10: Toggle the Context Menu and then click on the Import from Collection function.
Step 11: Toggle the Context Menu once again, then click on the Set as Subscription List function.
Step 12: Return to the top menu of the Stream All The Sources addon, then navigate to the Settings menu.
Step 13: Click on the Add-on Settings menu.
Step 14: Scroll over to the Library Integration tab on the horizontal menu at the top of the window.
Step 15: Take note of the path displayed next to the TV Show Folder field. You’ll need this information momentarily.
Step 16: Enable the Automatically Update Subscriptions option.
Step 17: Enable the During StartUp? option.
Step 18: Enable the Update Library Afterward option.
Step 19: Enable the Prune Ended Shows? option.
Step 20: Enable the Include Movies? option.
Step 21: Click on the OK button at the bottom of the window.
Step 22: At this point, you’ll want to make sure you have at least a few television shows added to your subscription list. Start by finding a TV show you wish to subscribe to.
Step 23: Highlight the name of the TV show, then toggle the Context Menu and click on the Add to Library function.
Step 24: Return to the Kodi home screen, then navigate to the Files tab under the VIDEOS menu.
Step 25: Click on the Add videos… function.
Step 26: Click on the top text input box that displays <None> under the Enter the paths or browse for the media locations heading.
Step 27: Input the path that you should have taken note of in Step 15 of this guide, then press the Done button.
Step 28: Click on the bottom text input box that displays TVShows under the Enter a name for this media source heading.
Step 29: Input SALTS TV and then press the Done button.
Step 30: Press the OK button at the bottom of the window.
Step 31: Under the This directory contains heading, change the media type to display the (TV shows) option.
Step 32: Click on the OK button at the bottom of the window.
Step 33: Press the Yes button when prompted to refresh information for all items within this path.
Step 34: Wait a couple minutes or more (depending on how many subscription items you have) for the Kodi library to scan your content.
Step 35: You’re done! You’ll now see new episodes displayed on top of the new TV SHOWS menu for all your subscriptions as they air on television.
At first you’ll see all of the same show displayed, because all the previous episodes were just added to your library. As new episodes air, you’ll see only the latest episode of each of your subscribed shows displayed. You can even setup subscriptions for your favourite movies as well if you’d like.
