I caught up on one of my favorite obscure TV shows using Genesis Reborn. All links worked.
The Genesis Add-on is back! Well, kinda…?
For those who have been in the KODI community for awhile, you probably have fond memories of the Genesis KODI add-on. For those not in the know, Genesis was probably the largest force for making streaming KODI as popular as it is today.
So why is it called Genesis Reborn?
When the Genesis project was abandoned, other great add-ons took its place (not to mention its source code) and created popular forks such as Exodus (RIP) and Specto (Still solid as of this writing). Probably the most popular add-on right now based on the Genesis framework is Covenant, which itself a fork of Exodus which was a fork of…. well, you get the point..
The Genesis Reborn interface will be very familiar to any one who has used any of the add-ons listed above. It offers free access to movies, TV shows, as well as a calendar that will help you stay on top of new episodes.
So lets get into it!

While Genesis reborn offers many free pre-recorded options, it does not offer a way to watch live TV. While I do love some of the free TV streaming apps like Mobdro and Live NetTV, the app I keep coming back to without fail is SET TV. It comes standard with all paid stations, including league passes for all NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL etc., plus free Pay-Per-Views.
The best part? Its just $20 a month.
To get your free trial of SET TV as well as instructions on how to install it on your Fire Stick or Fire TV see our article here.
