What are the best Kodi streaming add-ons as of November 2018? This post will introduce you to all the most popular unofficial Kodi streaming add-ons, and it will let you know which ones are still working and online vs which one are broken and offline vs which ones are abandoned.
With all the recent turmoil in the Kodi community with legal issues, developers quitting, and YouTubers stirring the pot, it’s really hard for the average person to know which add-ons are actually working and which ones are any good.
In this post, I will give you the most up-to-date list of the best Kodi unofficial add-ons, which repo they belong to, when was their last code commit, and if the add-on is still online or not. I will be continually adding any new add-ons to this list. If you would like to suggest any, please leave a comment at the bottom of this post.
I hope this is helpful for you!

Note: This website is tracking these add-ons to see when they were last updated and if they are still online meaning accessible at their last known location. Just because an add-on is technically online doesn’t mean it’s necessarily working properly, however, add-ons that have been updated recently tend to work better since their developer is actively maintaining the code.
My Review of Working Kodi Add-ons
Before I developed the list of status tracked add-ons above, I wrote these reviews of working add-ons. I’ll try to keep this fairly up-to-date, but the information above will always be current.
Working TV & Movie Streaming Add-ons for Kodi
- The Magic Dragon – Maverick – Maverick’s newest add-on with tons of content.
- Selfless Lite – Bliss Lite – The Selfless Lite Kodi add-on is a live IPTV / playlist streaming add-on for Kodi with a TON of sections of content.
- Genesis Reborn – This is a fork from the original Genesis add-on, one of the biggest and most popular add-ons from the earlier days of Kodi. Most of the add-ons you use today are a fork of a fork of Genesis. It kind of started it all. If you want the same interface and experience as Genesis, but want it updated and still working, give this a try.
- The Pyramid – This add-on has a lot of content. It has many sections including documentary zone, Kids, Movies, Music, Radio, Sport, TV, and more. It seems to be getting regular updates.
- MaverickTV – Maverick Repo – Maverick TV is a good all-around playlist add-on that streams movies, TV shows, sports, live TV, 24/7 channels, and more. It has a lot of categories of content. It’s a one-click to play add-on which tries to finds the best stream to play.
- At the Flix by Maverick – Maverick Repo – Maverick’s newer add-on which claims to have “the latest movies and shows”.
- Planet MMA – Ares Repo – I posted about Planet MMA in preparation for a big ppv fight event. It’s an add-on that’s totally dedicated to MMA / boxing. It seems to work pretty well and is still actively getting updates.
Abandoned but Still Working (for now)
- Incursion – kodibae on GitHub or addons4kodi repo – This was my current favorite Kodi add-on. It is a fork of Covenant, but has more options. It has a pretty clean-looking theme and seems to work well and fast. However, I’ve started hearing rumors that Incursion was abandoned. Since I’m still seeing the last update was from April 2018, it looks like the rumors are true. With that said, it’s still my favorite and seems to work great still with Real-Debrid hooked up.
- cCloud – Kodi Bae – cCloud is a great add-on that provides 1000s of channels of live IPTV and 24/7 channels.
- Aragon Live – Blamo Repo – If you want live TV streaming on Kodi, this add-on was awesome. In my initial testing and reviewing, every single live channel I tried worked flawlessly, and it has a LOT of channels!
- Covenant – Colossus Repo – This was my favorite add-on after Exodus went down. The Colossus repo was deleted from Github, but it came back up on the Github username, “covenantkodi”.
- Exodus – Kodi Bae Repo – The successor to Genesis which was later replaced by Covenant around the time of TVAddons going down. It still technically works, but in my Covenant tutorial, I explain how Covenant works so much better than Exodus. I think it’s only a matter of time until Exodus sputters to its death. Covenant was the replacement for it and is an exact replica,
but is still being developed and supported. Exodus version 6 was last updated June 2018. Some report they still get better results with Exodus when searching for some older content and foreign films with English dubs as opposed to Covenant.
- SALTS (Stream All The Sources) – Smash Repo – After Genesis went down a long time ago, SALTS was my favorite replacement. Later when Exodus came out with some newer features, I was swayed back that direction. But, SALTS still appears to be working. However, according to the add-on description, the last version was made from the TVAddons guys and Smash has only fixed some images in the add-on.
- Bubbles – Bubbles Repo – Bubbles is probably one of the most intricate unofficial add-ons for Kodi. You can really tell that the developer knows his stuff. I’ve now moved it to the abandoned category since it’s been replaced with the new Gaia add-on.
- Specto Fork – Kdil Repo – Specto is a fork of Genesis that gained popularity way back when Genesis was on its way out (before the Genesis developer released his next add-on, Exodus). It’s been a while since that, and now 2 generations later with Covenant, Specto still has a decent following.
- Gurzil – Kdil Repo – Gurzil is an add-on that is new to me. It’s in the
SmashKdil repo and it seems to be an identical clone of Covenant and Exodus. The only thing I can tell that is different is the name, the red color scheme, and icon theme. But, seems to work great, so it’s nice to have another alternative to Covenant in case there are any issues.
- Blamo Add-ons – The following Blamo add-ons have all been moved to this section because Mr. Blamo shut it all down.
- Neptune Rising –
BlamoMagicality Repo – This is one of my favorite because it’s a fork of Covenant. Unfortunately, Covenant isn’t maintained anymore, but Neptune Rising is. This is one of the more popular ones, but in my experience, I’ve had some cases where Neptune Rising wouldn’t work, but Incursion would. How to get Neptune Rising from Magicality Repo.
- Placenta –
BlamoMagicality Repo – This is another new add-on that is a fork of Covenant, but has some more options. How to get Placenta from Magicality Repo.

|Kodi Add-on:||Repo:||Last Activity:||Status:|
|Magicality||Magicality||October 16, 2018||Offline|
|Mobdro||Bookmark Lite||October 1, 2018||Offline|
|PureSoccer||Blamo Fork||August 14, 2018||Offline|
- Gaia – Gaia Repo – This was a noteworthy, “up & coming” streaming add-on that looked like it had a lot of potential. Being a fork of the Bubbles add-on, the emphasis of Gaia is having an insane amount of bells & whistles. Unfortunately, it has caused me nothing but issues. It was ridiculously slow, and in September 2018, it was exposed that the developers of Gaia had cryptocurrency mining malware hiding in the add-on. Gee, I wonder if that’s why it was so slow? Even though Gaia isn’t abandoned, and may not be considered broken, my advice is to stay away from Gaia.
- Magicality – Magicality Repo – The Magicality Kodi add-on is a fork of the popular Neptune Rising add-on for Kodi. Since Mr. Blamo shut down his repo and add-ons, the Magicality repo is now hosting Neptune Rising, Placenta, and its very own fork of Neptune Rising called Magicality.
- DeathStreams – Blamo Repo – Forked from the long-popular SALTS add-on, DeathStreams is definitely a nice add-on worth checking out.
- NoobsAndNerds repo was shut down
- Elysium Lite – NoobsAndNerds Repo – Elysium Lite is a faster version of Elysium.
- Elysium – NoobsAndNerds Repo – This is a pretty popular streaming add-on. It is the rebranded version of the old Zen add-on. I reviewed it along with an installation tutorial. My brief thoughts are that it is missing Trakt.tv integration. Besides that, it’s pretty solid.
- BoB Unleashed – NoobsAndNerds Repo
- Genesis –
Fusion Repo– Rest in peace, Genesis, the most popular of the early founding fathers of unofficial Kodi streaming add-ons. Genesis was replaced by Exodus which was replaced by Covenant, which was replaced by a ton of different add-ons.
- Icefilms – Smash Repo – Icefilms is one of the oldest unofficial Kodi streaming add-ons from way back in the day. It went down with Fusion, but shows up in the Smash Repo with a note “FIX IS NOT WORKING”.
- 1Channel – Smash Repo – 1Channel (aka Primewire) is one of the oldest unofficial streaming add-ons for Kodi. It looks like it’s done a decent job at keeping up to date with things like URLResolver setting, Real-Debrid, Library integration, etc. The one thing it looks like it’s missing is Trakt integration. The add-on in the Smash repo is labeled as 1Channel FIX so it seems that it was broken before and was recently revived with this fixed version. Since the Smash repo went down, I haven’t seen this one around, so I’ve moved it to the broken section.
- SportsDevil – Colossus Repo – This is also one of the oldest unofficial Kodi add-ons right there along with the old Icefilms. However, SportsDevil is still actively getting updates, so it doesn’t seem to be abandoned. However, when I was testing it out, clicking around on random links for over 10 minutes straight, I couldn’t get a single stream to load during that whole time. If someone has a suggested fix or has any tips for where to go within the add-on to get good streams, please let me know in the comments. But for now, I’m categorizing this as broken.
- ManiaHD – The Mania Services Repo – This is a premium paid service and Kodi add-on. They used to work great, but recently they closed off subscriptions and renewals preventing more people from using their service.
- Sports Guru – Caffeinated Repo – The Sports Guru Kodi add-on has sports scores, live updates, a live ticker, and has full game replays too! You can also set up alerts for breaking sports news and game scores. You can get notifications for Ice Hockey, Basketball, Baseball, and Soccer.
- PureSoccer – PureRepo – The PureSoccer add-on (Formerly SportsMatrix, formerly PureSports) is a sports streaming add-on for Kodi. It seems like a great alternative to SportsDevil and Sports Hub.
- Sports Hub – TrantrumTV Repo – The new name of the old “Pro Sports” add-on. It focuses on USA Sports like NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL. It has live streaming and archives to watch them later.
- SportsAccess – Smash Repo – This was a premium service add-on for sports streaming. You have to have a paid subscription to use the add-on. Unfortunately, their website’s signup page has a server error on it.
- Sportie – This add-on was yet another option for sports streaming. It was developed by Echo Coder who I’ve heard recently quit developing Kodi add-ons. If you happen to have the add-on still installed from before, it only says “Thank Soloman, Goodbye All!” I’m not sure what the YouTuber, Soloman did, but it sounds like he may have driven Echo Coder to quit. Come on, Soloman… respect the devs.
- PubFilm – SuperRepo – This add-on is completely broken. None of the menus work.
- FilmOn – NoobsAndNerds Repo – I haven’t heard anything about this add-on in a while, but I know it was one that’s been around for a while. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get any links to work, so it seems to be broken.
- SolarMovie – NoobsAndNerds Repo – This is an add-on that I’ve heard of and has been around for a long time, but it’s completely broken. All of the folders are empty.
