After careful testing and deliberation, we’ve put together a list of what we consider to be the Top 10 Kodi Addons that scrape content from verified sources. These are some of the best Kodi addons ever made. They offer reliable, high quality streaming. Verified addons also mean setting a good example for your children, by teaching them to only stream content that comes from legitimate sources. All jokes aside, these top 10 Kodi addons are all excellent choices when it comes to extending the functionality of your Kodi device. We hope you enjoy these Kodi addons as much as we do, and stay tuned for what’s coming soon!
On a more somber note… As far as we’re concerned, the title of this article reads like something you’d expect to see on a North Korean web site. Verified content sources? It’s the bloody internet, how can anything verified be truly verified? What happened to the free flow of content and information? Unfortunately the laws that are supposed to protect online communities did not prevent some of the biggest telecom companies from violating our founder’s rights and unlawfully seizing our property. Therefore until the court formally upholds our rights, we’ve decided to be extra careful (and heavily restrict innovation) by temporarily disallowing the submission of addon code where sources can’t be easily verified.
