You may have heard of Kodi through a friend, neighbour or coworker – or perhaps read about us getting sued in the news. Kodi is an open source media player that supports plugins known as Kodi addons, which offer extended functionality.
The most popular Kodi addons are unofficial, meaning they have no connection to the core development of Kodi. Developers from around the world create Kodi addons which can be used to scrape content from online sources and play them directly on your TV.
Using the right Kodi addons, you can turn online streaming web sites into a Netflix-style experience. Simple, one click play. No popups, no ads, no malware! Continue reading below to learn how-to get started with Kodi in 15 minutes or less.
We rely heavily on the generosity of our users in order to remain operational. If you can afford to donate, anything is truly appreciated…

Part 5: GitHub Usernames
Due to our ongoing legal battle against Canada’s biggest telecom companies, we’ve instituted a temporary addon policy which restricts the submission of certain Kodi addons.
If you cannot figure out which GitHub usernames to lookup on your own, there’s always Google. Searching for “GitHub Usernames for Kodi” should do the trick.
We kindly ask that you not discuss nor distribute Blacklisted Kodi Addons over our platform nor using our tools.
