    I also bought this box recently and do not have some of the addons to watch movies (Primewire, Exodus) so I need to figure out how to drop them into Kodi.

    Probably the internal heat shunting arrangements for the CPU/GPU are inadequate, or even nonexistent. Or even the SoC or RAM or something are substandard B or C grade components, and doesn't perform to manufacturer A grade specs.

    These things are often just thrown together by unknown manufacturers, using the absolute cheapest sources of parts they can get, and have very little QA. I saw some ladies assembling cheapo Android tablets in a shopping mall once.

    Ok I guess that the question I need to ask first is where can I get these addons for Kodi.

    You have to install them yourself either from repository or usb, I'd suggest repository. Here's a link to a website that will show you what you need to do http://theandroidbox.com/category/tutorials/

    I believe Netflix will only run on approved devices. Suggest you contact their customer service, as to what they support.

    Well you have bought quite an old box -which is the one I have ,still .Your problem is that it will struggle with what you seem to want and it is quite under powered for today but you can do some things to help, if you only watch the latest videos you will get sites that run but in this world every day the addons can drop off ,what I suggest is that you watch youtube videos for tweaks as these help the box run better and visit forums to see what is changing ,I have found that in general it is waste of time asking questions because they have answered the same question a thousand times .Watch the tutorials they offer and if you want to install then a guy called Michael Seo gives the easiest and best help but the pixilated pictures are sadly par for the course on a lot of sports links but there are some free good ones and you should get good films but do the tweaks and it will help
