The first time you open Kodi, wait a minute to allow it to build its skin shortcuts menu. Don’t scroll around or open anything until you see the temperature appear in the bottom right corner beside the date. When the temperature appears, the box is ready to go. Now you can open apps, etc.
Unless you have a VPN (you’ll know if you do) or an active Real Debrid subscription on your tv box, do not choose a link that says “Torrent”. These are file-sharing links that play really well but will get a warning letter from your internet provider. Typically these links are found in the Kodi add-ons but may be in the Android Apps as well.
