We know that it can be tough to keep track of which Kodi Addons are worth your time, and which ones aren’t. Every month, new addons pop up, old ones shut down, and previously reliable sources stop functioning.
Luckily, we’ve done the research for you. We are constantly testing which Kodi addons deliver the highest quality, most reliable streaming content for Amazon Fire stick and Fire TV.
Here are our top picks for working Kodi addons as of September 2018:
Please Read Before Proceeding
We don't make, distribute or contribute to the software mentioned on this site.
Some of the streaming content may be copyright protected, and we NEVER condone piracy. However, we understand that you may not always be aware of what content is ok to stream and what isn't.That is why we ALWAYS encourage you to use a VPN service so third parties (governments, corporations, hackers) cannot look into your online activities. If you are caught streaming pirated materials, even by mistake, you WILL face steep penalties, sometimes totaling thousands of dollars in fines and legal fees.
This can all be avoided by simply signing up for a VPN service and using it everytime you log on. They are a cheap, easy way to ensure your information stays protected. We prefer IPVanish, which you can read about here.
You wouldn't ride a bike without a helmet, and you shouldn't stream without protection.
So be smart, try not to steal stuff if you can help it, and for God's sake always use a VPN.
Click here to reveal our list of the best VPNs of 2018
US-based IPVanish boasts many excellent qualities that we look for in a VPN: it’s fast, and has about 1,000 server locations spread across the globe. This is an old stand-by for us that we still heartily recommend.
Private Internet Access is a great VPN service for someone looking for something a bit more affordable. It’s just about the cheapest option out there, but still has a respectable amount of functionality.
VyprVPN is a solid VPN choice with few drawbacks. This Swiss service operates about 700 servers, with a great spread of about 70 countries. The “Chameleon Protocol” it offers for premium subscribers is nice, but some customers may be turned off by the limited number of devices they can connect.
TunnelBear is a quirky Canadian VPN service that may be a good choice if you are just looking for something reasonably priced and extremely user-friendly. This company clearly prides itself on it’s colorful, intuitive layout that virtually anyone should be able to figure out right away.
TorGuard is a US-based VPN provider with a lot going for it, despite it’s relatively high price. As the name suggests, this service is built for torrenting, so if that’s your game, TorGuard might be the one for you.
The irreverently-named Hide My Ass is a popular VPN service with what is probably the broadest range of servers of any company out there. Based in England, it operates over 800 servers out of an impressive 220+ countries. However, it’s logging policy has left some users concerned about how safe their privacy really is.
Neptune Rising has quickly become one of the best Kodi add-ons for 2018, due to it’s clean layout, expansive content collection, and stability. It evolved from the Covenant addon, so it should be familiar to users of that program.
You can find it in the always-reliable Mr. Blamo repository, the most recent update cleaned up the interface and improved it’s speed. We highly recommend this add-on for all your streaming needs.
Genesis Reborn is a fork that replaces the original Genesis add-on, which was shut down. The source code has been improved for this iteration, and it is more streamlined and stable now.
The original Genesis was perhaps the most popular add-on of all time, and this offshoot lives up to it’s predecessors stature, with tons of streaming TV, sports, and movies. We are glad to see this one back, and highly recommend it.
Uranus is a great recent fork of the Elysium/Exodus add-on family. It focuses on high quality streaming TV and movies for Kodi, and the developers have been doing a good job of keeping this program up and running smoothly.
Uranus seems to draw on a fewer number of sources than similar add-ons, but this means the sources it does provide work consistently. If you are looking to stream this type of content, we highly recommend the Uranus add-on.
Incursion is the newest fork of the extremely popular Covenant add-on. It is one of the best add-ons for streaming on Kodi currently, and is being continuously updated to provide fast, accurate sources for TV, sports, and movies.
Unlike many of the forks that popped up in the wake of Covenants demise, Incursion provides good support from it’s development team, and is constantly adding new features and playlists. Definitely give this one a try.
The Magic Dragon is a rebrand of the very popular The Dog’s Bollocks addon that can be found in the Supremacy repository. Everything that you loved about The Dog’s Bollocks is still here. This is a powerful all-in-one Kodi addon that provides access to streaming movies and television, IPTV, sports, and much more.
The Gaia Kodi addon is a fork of the now-defunct Bubbles addon. This is a powerful addon for high-quality streams that sources its content from both free and premium services. It uses multiple scrapers to find HD movies, TV shows, children’s programs, documentaries, and short films.
The interface is slick and easy to use, and even without paying for the premium versions it provides a ton of great stuff. This addon also has it’s own repository, making it extremely stable and unlikely to get shut down, which is also great.
Placenta is a newer fork of the popular Covenant/Exodus add-on. It offers a wider range of content and can be found (along with other great Kodi add-ons) in the Mr. Blamo repository. This repository has been updated recently and seems to be a stable source for all your TV and movie streaming needs.
Redemption is the fresh new re-brand of the very popular Bucky Movies addon. It can be found in the same Bucky repository.
Like it’s predecessor, Redemption focuses almost exclusively on movies. You can find a wide selection of new releases and older films, along with dedicated sections for streaming 4k and 3D. It even includes an MMA section for fight fans.
If you are a fan of movies, we highly recommend the Redemption Kodi addon for all your streaming needs.
Juggernaut is an extremely powerful Kodi add-on. The Juggernaut add-on works as an aggregator, bringing many popular Kodi add-on’s together in one repository.
You can access Roger, Mystique, Cesar, I Am Absalom, I.C.U., Timber Wolf, Emerge, and Film Noir from the Juggernaut repository, each with its own branches of streaming content. With so many sources, you are sure to find what you want with this add-on.
Another aggregator, Triton is a great Kodi addon for streaming TV and Movies. It has been recently updated for 2018.
Triton combines multiple add-ons from the Soulless development team into one easy-to-use platform. It includes the Boxset Kings, Revelations, and Hit List add-ons in one place. You can find new releases, box sets, HD movies and more here. Highly recommended
cCloud TV has been around for a long time, particularly for the constantly-changing world of Kodi add-ons.
Despite some of the recent issues it has struggled with, particularly with inconsistent, dead links, cCloud TV is still a great source for streaming IPTV and live sports on Kodi.
This cloud-based add-on features tons of great streaming live TV from around the world in many languages, so if you are especially interested in international content, cCloud TV should definitely be an option for you.
Oculus is an extremely popular Kodi add-on for streaming movies and TV. It has many content categories and custom curated playlists where you can find a lot of interesting content.
We have found this to be one of the best Kodi add-ons, it’s well organized and quick to load, with a lot of quality content, although there have been complaints about the server going down occasionally.
Mobdro is a very interesting and powerful Android app that has made it’s way over to Kodi as an addon. Mobdro provides a ton of streaming content libraries, IPTV, sports, PPV, even podcasts. The app is a favorite among Android users, and as a Kodi addon it has proven very robust, with tons of options.
SportsDevil is one of the longest-running Kodi add-ons for watching streaming sports. With this add-on, you can watch football, NBA, NHL, NFL, tennis, golf, MMA, and many more.
This add-on is best for live streaming. It does not provide much on-demand content, so you will usually need to tune in while the event is broadcasting. However, the wide variety of popular and niche sport content makes SportDevil one of the best Kodi add-ons for sports.
Project Mayhem is a dedicated Kodi add-on for streaming live sports. You can find it in the MaverickTV repository. This add-on is stable and frequently updated, making it a must-have for sports fans.
Project Mayhem has a ton of categories for live-streaming sports. The categories cover the Premier league, American football, baseball, hockey, fights, and more. The layout is simple and easy to browse, making it easy to find the content you are looking for.
For high-quality IPTV on Kodi, Project Mayhem is definitely one of the best options
Netstream Sports Hub contains many different categories, including football, cricket, boxing, basketball, and more. You are sure to find a reliable stream for whatever sporting event you are looking for with this addon. Highly recommended.
All streams are in 720P or 1080P and buffer easily, which is important when watching a live event. There’s nothing worse than losing your connection due to buffering in the 9th inning of a nail-biter of a game.
Pro Sports is a great Kodi addon for streaming US sporting events, such as NBA, NFL, MLB, and more. It sources up-to-date live streams from a Reddit scraper. It can be found in the Cazwall repository, alongside other interesting sports addons.
FTFA (Free TV For All) has become one of the most popular new Kodi add-ons. It boasts a large variety of content, from live TV programming to sports, to movies.
For this article, however, we will focus on it’s excellent “PPV Live” section.
This dedicated area host links to pretty much any current or upcoming PPV event you would want to watch. We have found that it’s typically a good idea to try and open the link at least a half hour before the event starts for best results.
For fans of Mixed Martial Arts and UFC, Planet MMA is one of the best Kodi addons to stream PPV fights.
This third-party addon covers every aspect of the MMA world, with dozens of content categories to choose from. We have found this addon to be extremely comprehensive, well-organized, and easy to navigate. Not only can you stream UFC PPV live, but past events, live TV, documentaries, and more are all available with this one.
Bottom line, if you are a fan gearing up for UFC fight season, this Kodi addon is probably your best bet to catch all the action.
Check out our installation guide here.
This is another fantastic add-on for fight fans. Here you can find multiple categories related to MMA, boxing, and other forms of martial arts.
It does not have a dedicated PPV section, but you can search for PPV events in the Showtime Sports and HBO Boxing categories.
Rising Tide is another popular add-on that boasts tons of content, including live sports and TV channels from all over the world.
For this article, we will focus on the PPV section, which you can find under the “Live PPV Event” category. Once you install the Rising Tide add-on, this section should have the event you are interested in.
Maverick TV is an add-on that focuses on live TV and movies, with hundreds of channels and new releases to choose from, many in HD.
For PPV, unfortunately, there is no dedicated section at this time. However, you can find PPV events through other sections of this Kodi add-on. We suggest the Maverick Live Sports category, as it is updated daily with most of the interesting PPV content. Maverick Sports and IPTV live also may have content you are interested in.
AnimeHere has been around for a little while, and it is still one of the best Kodi addons for streaming anime. It provides a ton of both dubbed and subbed anime that you can watch for free at your convenience.
If you are a fan of Kodi, you may be familiar with Incursion, one of the best general TV/Movie addons out there. However, the Incursion team also included a separate addon in the same repository, dedicated exclusively to anime, and it is everything you expect a great addon to be.
KissAnime is by far one of the best Kodi addons out there for anime fanatics. This popular addon has a massive selection of over 6000 titles, broken down by category. It provides streams of everything from the most popular anime hits, to obscure, hard-to-find shows, which should satisfy even the most hardcore geeks out there.
Kids Corner V2 is a Kodi addon with a good selection of shows and movies available from the Illuminati repository. The content is broken down by several categories, including Classic Cartoons, Superhero Movies, and Anime. This addon is up and running well, with enough to choose from that even the pickiest child should be satisfied.
TubTub is a dedicated Kodi add-on for children’s programming that features tons of kids shows and movies. Any family is sure to find something to watch in TubTub’s massive collection of vintage and new releases. Some of the content may not be as appropriate for the youngest viewers, but over-all everything streaming on this addon should be kid-safe. We think this is one of the best addons out there for this type of content.
Binky TV is a great Kodi addon that offers content aimed at pre-school aged children. This addon streams several dozen shows appropriate for young children, including classics like Barney and Reading Rainbow. It even includes some English As A Second Language educational options, if your child is trying to learn English. Older children might not find much here, but if you are looking for 100% safe, age-appropriate shows for toddlers, Binky TV is a good bet.
