Best Kodi Addons - Featured

We know that a lot of you are always searching for new addons to try. This is most probably the reason why you’re reading this article. We also understand how frustrating it can be to install different addons and find out they’re not working after all. This is why, here at TechNadu, we’re dedicated to bringing the best Kodi addons. Continue reading to learn more. 

Disclaimer: We will be talking about software developed for Kodi – which is based on open-source code. However, the following software comes from unofficial third-parties. In addition, it is publicly available and free of charge. TechNadu doesn’t claim any responsibility for how our readers decide to utilize the following software. Please note that we don’t condone sharing pirated content and copyright infringement. TechNadu is not affiliated with the software mentioned in this article in no way. Make sure to carefully read the above-said disclaimer and ensure the proper use of the software.

WARNING: Before You Continue…

TechNadu recommends connecting to the Web using a VPN application. The majority of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are able of tracking your Web browsing habits and collecting information. This kind of personal data can be forwarded to government agencies or sold to marketing companies. One of the consequences of these actions can be copyright infringement notices that some users of Kodi reported receiving. The only way to stop this from happening is to use a VPN.

  • VPN applications encrypt your Internet connection. As such, your personal data stay hidden and inaccessible by your Internet Service Provider.
  • VPN applications guard your online anonymity. A number of websites often use cookies to track your browsing habits. By altering your IP address, VPNs preserve your anonymity no matter if you visit websites or use Kodi to stream media.
  • VPNs unlock restricted content. Using this kind of application, your computer will receive a new IP address that points to a completely different physical location. This is how you can watch region-restricted movies and TV shows.
  • VPNs can improve your Internet connectivity. A reliable VPN application can de-block throttled connections and achieve better overall performance.

Best Kodi Addons

Based on our experience, TechNadu would like to recommend IPVanish. This has been our VPN of choice for a long time, making us happy with its features and performance.

IPVanish is capable of keeping your connection highly secure. It can also be used to watch region-restricted movies and TV shows. Finally, this application doesn’t affect Internet connection speeds. On top of that, it’s very affordable. Sign up for IPVanish and try it out for yourself.

Best Kodi Addons: 100% Working & Updated

There are hundreds of high-quality addons for Kodi, from almost every category imaginable. However, we’ll make it easier for you by selecting only the very best Kodi addons that are available at the moment. We will start with the most capable all-in-one addons. Later in the article, we’ll cover more specific categories as well. Let’s jump right in.


During several previous iterations of this article, you were able to find addons like Exodus and Covenant at the top of this list. However, you’ve probably heard that a number of popular addons have shut down. Therefore, we sought to find viable alternatives.

At the moment, SkyNet is one of the most popular all-in-one addons. Despite the recent shakeup, it is still strong and works without any issues. You can find and download it from the Maverick TV Repository – which is fully functional and working normally.

Best Kodi Addons

So, what can you expect from SkyNet and why is this one of the best Kodi addons? Well, that is because of its huge library of streamable media. It covers several different sources of content, dedicated to different types of media. This includes movies, TV shows, live TV channels, sports programming, and IPTV as well. On top of that, this is where you’ll find 4K and UltraHD movies – if your Internet connection is strong enough.

Head over to our detailed guide on SkyNet, where you can learn how to install this addon.

BOB Unleashed

Are you looking for a perfect and fully-working streaming service for watching online TV and movies? Then, the BOB Unleashed addon is an excellent choice for you. It contains everything from movies and TV shows, sports programming, up to cartoons and anime. In addition, this is where you can find 4K movies and HD content as well.

Best Kodi Addons

BOB Unleashed is developed by a group called BOB Team. You can download this addon by installing the Noobs and Nerds Repository first. After a long break, and its forum section are back online. The developer promised to bring some cool updates to the addon very soon. You can check out the official Reddit thread that’s maintained by the developer of this addon.

Once you open BOB Unleashed you will see items like Stream New Releases, Amazing TV, Sports, Kids, Docs, Caira, Griffin, Shepo, T.A. Streams, Thunder, TNPB, Valhalla, TNPB Box sets, Music TV, Walk of Fame and much more. As you can see, this addon is similar to Bennu in the way their main menus are organized. BOB Unleashed is maintained by different groups, which can create some confusion at times.

If you’d like to try out this addon, check out TechNadu’s step-by-step installation guide for BOB Unleashed.


It seems like Nemesis was forgotten for a while once fresh and highly-capable addons arrived. However, many of those new addons turned out not to be as great as we hoped them to be. Once again, Nemesis started to look like an amazing option.

Best Kodi Addons

Once you open this addon, it will display how many times it has been opened since its launch. We can see this number steadily rising after Exodus and Covenant disappeared. It seems like we’re not the only Kodi users to have returned to this once highly popular addon. To be honest, we’re glad to see this since Nemesis has a lot of offer.

This addon’s catalog consists of movies, TV shows, and sports-related content. These three categories are fueled by different content sources, so there’s always something new to watch. However, Nemesis also offers music, audiobooks, cartoons, and anime. There’s even a dedicated section for adult content. Each of these categories seems to be work just fine. You will spend weeks browsing this addon and enjoying its library of content. Even when you think you’re done, you’ll find a part that you haven’t explored before. This is why Nemesis is one of the best Kodi addons.

For more information on the Nemesis Kodi addon, please use the provided link.

Goodfellas 2.0

Goodfellas is one of the best all-around addons. Instead of focusing on a single type of content, it tries to cater to different groups of users. This is why you can find movies, TV shows, live sports, audiobooks, and YouTube clips as well.

Best Kodi Addons

What’s unique about GoodFellas 2.0 is the way its main menu is organized. Instead of bringing classic categories, you will find a large list of specific content types. For example, these can be culinary content, audiobooks, military, outdoors, and similar.

We have been using GoodFellas 2.0 for several months now, and we’re very happy with the performance and content it brings. There are very few non-working links and it seems like they get removed rather soon. In the group of all-in-one addons, GoodFellas is at the very top of the best Kodi addons.

Read our guide to installing GoodFellas 2.0 on Kodi.


We are sure that many of you were fans of Exodus, which isn’t available anymore. However, the good news is that you can find very similar addons to Exodus that manage to bring large media libraries. At the moment, one of the best Exodus alternatives is Specto.

Best Kodi Addons

Specto is also known as ‘Specto – Exodus Fork‘ which tells you that these two addons share the same core. In other words, they are close to identical. Once you launch Specto, you will be greeted by a familiar interface. The main menu starts with categories like Movies and TV shows and continues with Channels, My Specto, and so on. If you enter the Movies category, you can filter the available content by genres, languages, popularity, and in other ways.

Clicking on a movie or TV show episode will force Specto to scrape the Web. You will see a large list of available sources, and you get to pick from HQ and HD video quality. Simply click on one of the available sources, and you can start playing the file.

Use the following link to learn more about Specto. This is where we talk about the installation method and this addon’s features.

UK Turk’s Playlists

UK Turk is one of the legends of Kodi. This is perhaps one of the oldest addons that still manages to bring tons of content. In addition, it manages to bring regular updates that fix non-working links and adds new types of content.

Best Kodi Addons

Once you open UK Turk’s Playlists, you will be greeted by a grid of icons. As you’ll see, this addon is focused on movies and TV channels from the U.K. and Turkey as well. However, you can also find international content as well.

It’s also worth knowing that this addon brings very specific content categories like concerts and stand-up comedy. You usually have to use niche addons to get these types of content.

Read more about UK Turk’s Playlists as well as how to install it on Kodi.


We will remember the previous month as a very hectic time for Kodi and its addons. One of the previously popular addons that no longer works properly is SportsDevil. So, we want to show you an alternative so you can continue watching sports-related content on Kodi.

Best Kodi Addons

Deliverance is a very interesting addon that combines a rather large sports library with other types of entertaining content. However, you should think of Deliverance as a sports addon in the first place.

Once you open Deliverance, you will be greeted by items like Football Highlights, Premier League Table, Deliverance Sports, and Deliverance Sports Movies. Each of these packs a huge amount of media streams – all of which seem to be working normally. However, we shouldn’t forget to mention that Deliverance also offers music, live TV channels, documentaries, and comedy-related content.

Make sure to read more about Deliverance, where you’ll get the needed information on how to install this addon.

Rising Tides

When it comes to sports, Deliverance isn’t your only option. In case you want something else, we’d like to recommend an addon named Rising Tides.

Best Kodi Addons

Unlike other addons on this list, Rising Tides is all about sports. Whether you want to watch replays, highlights, or live broadcasts, this addon’s got you covered. It is also worth noting that Rising Tides isn’t just focused on a single sport. Instead, it brings various types of content related to different sports and different countries as well.

Finally, Rising Tides is known as a highly reliable addon when it comes to live-sports. If there’s a big game scheduled for today, for example, you can be sure that a fully-working streaming link will appear. You just need to activate that link ten minutes before the game starts.

Make sure to try out Rising Tides on your own. It’s definitely worth your time.


Bubbles is a recently-released Kodi addon that quickly climbed its way to the best Kodi addons. It allows the users to stream movies, TV shows, documentaries, and short films from a variety of sources, such as torrents, Usenet, individuals hosters, and video streaming services.

Best Kodi Addons - Bubbles

It is also worth knowing that Bubbles utilizes three services. These are Premiumize and Real Debrid – both of which are paid services. You can also use a service called Hoster, which is free-of-charge. If you’re serious about using Kodi, don’t hesitate to sign-up for a Real Debrid account. This service allows you to download and stream files without any buffering issues. In addition, you can resume downloading files and pause at any moment.

Use the following link to learn more about Bubbles and how to install it on Kodi.

Brettus Documentaries

We’d like to conclude this article with a very interesting niche addon. As you can see, the addons mentioned in this article usually bring movies, TV shows, sports programming, and other popular types of content. However, we are sure that many of you enjoy watching documentaries on Kodi. This is where Brettus Documentaries comes into play since it’s one of the best Kodi addons when it comes to this particular type of content.

Best Kodi Addons

This isn’t a new addon. It has been around for a while, living on the outskirts – so to say. Those interesting in documentaries were able to find it, but the same couldn’t be said for other Kodi users. Without any doubt, we are sure you’re going to love this addon.

As its name implies, Brettus Documentaries is all about interesting documentary films. There is a huge fully-working library with hundreds of titles. The available movies are sorted by categories that are present on the home screen. Some of these categories are general, others are incredibly specific. Either way, you will surely find something interesting every time you visit this addon.

Make sure to install the Brettus Documentaries addon, and try it out on your own.

In addition, we’re always interested in hearing what our readers think. Tell us more about your favorite addons. We’d gladly expand our list of the best Kodi addons according to your suggestions.


  1. I have GoodFellas and cannot get the channels to stream. I am trying to find a site that offers The Foodnetwork, or the cooking channel. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

  2. On my kodi exudus and covenant are not working when I go to movies or series search nothing pops out and when I got to genres, new movies,people watching,most popular. Only some of the movies I have watch pops out nothing more and some play some don’t any1 knows how to fix it I updated today but same thing can some 1 help please

  3. Bennu is not a good working addon.

    Can’t hardy get any videos to play in it.

    Bennu times out, before it can get to any good sources.

    There is no timeout in the config settings.

    • You’re right. Erotik isn’t currently available in any repository we’re familiar with. However, we recommend a viable alternative. Try out Bennu which has a large library of adult content. You can also keep this category locked or hidden within Bennu in case you don’t want anyone else accessing or seeing it.

    • Yes, it’s hard to come by an amazing karaoke add-on for Kodi. However, you’ve come to the right place. We recommend checking out The DeLorean add-on that has a dedicated karaoke section.
      To download this addon, first add a new source with the following URL: Install that repository and inside you’ll find The DeLorean add-on. This add-on has a large library of karaoke songs, nicely organized by different categories.

    • If you’re looking for the latest TV shows, you’re in luck! Among the add-ons found in our article, the following can be used to watch TV shows: Exodus, Covenant, Bennu, BoB Unrestricted (which has been renamed to BoB Unleashed), Elysium, GoodFellas 2.0, UK Turk, and Wolfpack.
      We strongly recommend adding add-ons like Exodus and Bennu first, since these two will certainly cater to your needs. If you don’t find your favorite TV shows there, feel free to try out other add-ons.

    • The Learning Zone add-on is currently inaccessible because its repository is currently suspended. We hope this is just a temporary issue and that this add-on will once again become available.

  4. Hi Mr Gokul. I am impressed with Kodi knowledge base. I am especially impressed that you respond to all queries, even the mundane ones from beginners. I am hoping that you will respond to my query. My kodi 17.4 and covenant/Bennu addons we’re working perfectly until 2 days ago. Now very few streams are working. I have update kodi (17.5), the addons, cleared caches, providers etc and still the same. Can you say what has changed and do you have a fix? Thanks very much. I am saving your site for future articles.

    • Thanks for posting a comment! We’re extremely happy here at TechNadu that we have passionate readers like yourself. Now, let’s see how we can help you. The truth is that addons have their ups and downs at times. We can see that you’ve done all you can to keep your Kodi running at its best. Until Bennu and Covenant return to their usual state, we recommend trying out alternatives. We’re more than happy with addons such as Elektra Vault and Nemesis. Let us know how that works out.

  5. HI, My covenant and pyramid addons have stopped working as well… covenant has no movie streams at the moment and the pyramid just doesn’t connect to a server, will be adding Elektra Vault and nemesis in the mean time until the others have been fixed

  6. I just installed Kodi 17.5 on my new fire stick (2nd gen) . I used Titanium platform and am using Poseidon for movies. Terrible buffering and I have ipvanish. What add on do you recommend for movie streaming with little buffering and good selection?

  7. Still surprising to see how many users still use Exodus and wonder why it doesn’t work well. Exodus hasn’t been supported for 6+ months.

    Also “Buffering” has absolutely nothing to do with Covenant Vs Exodus.

    I have no idea how exodus works for anybody?
    Maybe if these people are still using jarvis Thats the only thing i can think of.

  8. CONFUSED: I have rechecked the address needed before the d/l of zip file and have done it twice but still having a problem. I have hit of KodiStuff and it is empty??? Why..what did I do wrong? I am using the Fire TV and on wifi and my computer is a Mac if that means anything. Do not see anything any where stating I have been working on this so long even the dog is mad at me.

    • Hi there! Thanks for contacting us. A few days ago, the SMASH Repository went down. At the moment, we don’t have any news whether this repo will be back online soon. However, you can take another look at this article since we have updated it yesterday. All of the mentioned addons should be working without any issues. Try out some of them and tell us what you think.

  9. Does anyone know away to get Bubbles to list my trakt movie Watchlist and trakt custom list in date order? Covenant list them in date order but Bubbles list them in alphabetical order. I’ve figured everything out in bubbles and it’s running good but I’d like my list in date order. I figure there is not an option but maybe….
