Add TV Shows Located on External USB Hard Drive
Adding TV shows as a video source allows Kodi to create a database called the Library that catalogs what TV shows you have and downloads the artwork and details about the show. Kodi will then create a menu item on the Home page so that you can search for your favourite TV show by title, genre, year, or actor. Above the TV Shows menu item are images showing the the last ten shows that were added.
