Despite what the critics may say, there are many amazing Kodi addons which have absolutely nothing to do with piracy. Over the past year, our community has gone through a lot of changes but is consistently growing to become stronger and more resilient than ever before. We’ve put together a list of what we consider to be the best Kodi addons in the game right now. For easy installation using our new Git Browser tool, we’ve included the developer’s GitHub usernames for each of the unofficial Kodi addons listed. If you don’t see a GitHub username listed, it means the addon at question is distributed through the official Kodi repository.

Over the past few years, copyright bullies have become more and more militant in their desire to maintain their archaic monopolies over the distribution of entertainment media. We are no longer confident in the DMCA’s supposed protections for online platforms. We also learned the hard way that Canada offers zero protections of disruptive technologies based on user generated content, seriously threatening innovation in the country. As a result, moving forward we will only be able to index Kodi addons for which content licensing can be easily verified. The thing is, verifying licensing online is next to impossible, regardless of the source.

Please note that you may use our Git Browser tool to install unrestricted Kodi addons (even ones we don’t support), all you’ll need to know is the GitHub username of its developer.
