Final Thought

iNovella as I earlier mentioned gives you access to exclusive Spanish soap operas. The Challenge is that unlike other add-ons on Kodi, it is difficult to navigate because the contents are written in Spanish (i used google translator). You will have to use google translator (for non-Spanish speakers) to translate some of the sections as you navigate through the content. If you are a Spanish telenovela lover, you may still check out this add-on.
