Installing Kodi alone on your device is not sufficient. You need Kodi add-ons to maximize its full benefits and provide you with unlimited streaming experience.
There are thousands of Kodi add-ons that you can search on the internet. However, many Kodi add-ons are no longer working and most third-party Kodi add-ons have been taken down by the authorities. It is a bit challenging to select the best Kodi add-ons for your PC / Fire TV Stick or other Kodi boxes. But, rarely any of them will talk about those Kodi add-ons which are providing 4K HD quality streaming.
I have listed out 30 working Best Kodi add-ons that are specially developed for 4K media streaming. You only need 3 to 5 different add-ons for any content category. But what truly matters is that the add-ons you pick are working and must deliver high-quality streams.
The System Requirements for 4K Video Streaming
- Your TV/Monitor display should support the 3840 x 2160 pixel (4K UHD) resolution.
- You must have Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K (3rd generation) or Android TV Box 4K (any 4K device in case if you use Kodi on a streaming device).
- You must have a high-quality HDMI cable to connect the media streaming device with TV/Monitor.
- Your internet speed must be a minimum of 30Mbps for 4K streaming. I recommend 100Mbps+ for buffer-free streaming.
- Your PC must have 1GB dedicated graphics and 4GB of RAM (in case if you installed Kodi on a PC).
These are the recommended system configuration for 4K movie streaming on Kodi. If you’re using Kodi on Firestick then make sure that you have Fire TV Stick 4K (3rd generation Firestick) or Fire TV Cube. The 50Mbps+ internet speed is mandatory for 4K video streaming.
Reminder KODI Users:
Kodi add-ons/builds offer unlimited streaming content, but you may be trapped into legal trouble if caught streaming free Movies / TV shows / Sports. It is strongly advised to always connect to a reliable VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee and you can always ask for a refund if you are not satisfied.
These are some of the best Kodi add-ons providing a 4K HD streaming link. The best method to get a smoother streaming experience is, integrate a Real Debrid account with your Kodi add-on. However, the above listed Kodi add-ons are most successful in finding high-quality 4K HD streaming links.
This is an incredible add-on with an incredible library of TV episodes and flicks for your never-ending entertainment experience. The Magic Dragon add-on quickly became the favorite of many Kodi experts and users alike after its release. This fast and easy to use add-on brings to you all your desired content including the latest movies and shows.
Powered by a set of most effective scrapers, The Magic Dragon scoops out the best streams that are there. It looks like the clone of The Dogs Bollocks add-on but with better packaging and certainly with better functions. Whether you like watching movies, shows, documentaries, kids’ stuff, sport-related videos, or simply listen to Music, The Magic Dragon has you covered. You can install The Magic Dragon icon from the Diamond Build Repo in just a few minutes.

Exodus was once the most popular and the most widely used Kodi add-on. Yes, this add-on still works. However, it is only living the relics of its past glory. After having a good long run, Exodus was shut down and later revived. But it isn’t what it used to be any longer. While it still has a huge content library, which is updated regularly, it is sometimes unreliable. I am keeping this add-on on the list as long as it is streaming fine. Moreover, Exodus is still the first preference for many Kodi users. If you are one of them and want to give it a try, you can install Exodus following the link below.
Introduced in October 2018, Exodus Redux is probably the most recent on-demand Kodi add-on. Despite being new, Exodus Redux snaps right to the top of our list of best Kodi add-ons. Our reasons are simple.
Exodus Redux may just as well be the clone of the exceptionally popular (and still active) Kodi add-on Exodus. But, Exodus seems to have worn down over years, while Exodus Redux is the new, bright star on the horizon.
Both these add-ons share almost exactly the same layout. But, Redux is equipped with an incredibly effective set of Open Scrapers and this is where it clearly outshines Exodus. Exodus Redux is fast, offers top of the line streams, and ensures nearly zero buffering for the most part. Integrate it with Real-Debrid and you get even better-quality streams with more Full HD playback options.
Covenant add-on has seen many ups and downs. For the longest time, it remained abandoned by its original developers and did not receive any updates. However, this incredibly popular Kodi add-on has now been revived and is available via two Repositories – Cy4Root and Covenant. The add-on is getting lots of working links now. It also works great with Real Debrid. You may install Covenant on Kodi in just a few minutes.
Repo: Covenant or Cy4Root
Source: https://covenant01.github.io/zip or https://cy4root2.github.io/zip
Tempest is yet another add-on that works great on Kodi 18 and serves you a solid library of movies and TV Shows. This add-on features the latest movies and aired episodes. You will also find plenty of old content here. Tempest looks like a fork of Covenant. While Covenant may not be supported any longer, Tempest is well maintained.
The streaming aspect of the Tempest Kodi add-on is impressive. It is quick to find the streams, fetches a lot of them, and just about all of them play. It works even better with Real Debrid. Tempest also supports Trakt integration. I like this add-on and I don’t see any reason why you wouldn’t.
Gaia is an on-demand add-on for your favorite movies and TV shows. Keeping the layout simple, the add-on organizes the content in easy categories on its main-screen including Movies, Shows, Documentaries, Kids, etc. When you request a video playback, Gaia will scrape dozens of streams from several servers. After being shut down for a while, Gaia is up and running again. The latest version of the add-on (Gaia 4) brings to you several enhancements and improvements over its predecessors. It works best when you use it with Real-Debrid.
Seren is one delightful addition to the world of Kodi add-ons. There are hundreds of add-ons out there and despite being new, Seren is making itself noticed. It looks like the team behind Seren is still developing the add-on. But, it already looks promising to me.
This add-on does not offer any free streaming links as I write this piece. You must configure it with one of the two premium hosters: Real Debrid or Premiumize. Of course, Real Debrid is my personal favorite and not just because it is more popular but also because it is better.
Since Seren uses premium links, it offers better playback. The streams are pulled fast, they are quick to play and there are more HD streaming options. The add-on is still being developed and modified. There is a chance it may start offering free streams in the future. But, that’s yet to be seen. At any rate, I am using this add-on and liking it well. I don’t have to sift through the bad links to find the one that works. Give it a try.
As I write this, Venom is a relatively new add-on. However, it has fast emerged as one of the popular choices, probably because a lot of top-rated and popular Kodi add-ons have shut shops. Venom offers a wide range of streaming choices in the Movies and TV Shows categories. Don’t expect any extras or fancy categories from Venom. However, if you mostly stream popular movies and shows, Venom is a wonderful option to try. It uses Lambda scrapers and is backed by a team of active developers. The content library of Venom is big. It is pulling top-notch streaming links from a variety of sources. Try it!
FEN is a relatively new Kodi add-on as compared to most of the add-ons on this list. However, it has proven itself to be worthy enough to be part of our collection of top add-ons. This lightweight and smooth add-on lets you stream your favorite movies and shows with incredible ease. It works swiftly on all the Kodi devices, including FireStick. Fen has a huge library of content and new ones are added regularly. Give it a try!
Nemesis AIO is a multi-category add-on that serves you on-demand content. You will find the regular Movies and TV Shows categories as well as special categories like Documentaries, Webcam, Gaming Videos, Anime, Cartoons, and more. Nemesis is working superbly as I write. I hope its current performance level is maintained in the time to come. If you have a Real Debrid account, don’t forget to pair it up with Nemesis AIO for a more amazing streaming experience.
Skynet add-on is an offering of the DejaVu repository, which is well known for the namesake add-on DejaVu. With Skynet add-on you can watch tons of movies and TV shows. It has a decent collection and is regularly updated with the latest content.
Skynet add-on works great on all Kodi supported devices, including FireStick, Mobiles, and Computers. It also supports premium links through Real Debrid, Premiumize, All Debrid, etc. You can also sign in with your Trakt account to sync your streaming data.
Clicksville Kodi add-on brings to you a big collection of on-demand content. It features categories for Movies, Music, Shows, Boxsets, Classics, and more.
This add-on works smoothly on any Kodi device of your choice. It is lightweight and fast.
Clicksville also supports Real Debrid. You can set it up directly from the home screen of the add-on. However, it also offers a separate category for free links, in case you do not have Real Debrid.
All in all, Clicksville looks like a decent streaming option, and hence it is now the part of this list of Best Kodi add-ons.
Revived by the popular cy4Root Repository, Uranus Kodi add-on is back in the game. With the whole new set of scrapers, this add-on is working better than ever before. It is pulling tons of quality links. It is offering smooth streaming too. The revamped version of Uranus features loads of content including Movies, Shows, and more. If you have used Uranus before and missed it, you can enjoy it again. If you are new to Kodi, you may try this add-on now.
ReleaseBB brings to you a wealth of movies and TV shows for your entertainment pleasures. This add-on guarantees high-quality streaming through premium providers. As I write, ReleaseBB does not procure any free streams. You must sign in with a premium hoster to enjoy the video content. You can use Real Debrid, All-Debrid, or Premiumize premium streaming services. While there are plenty of free add-ons out there, streaming with premium links is a completely different experience altogether. Try this add-on once!
Mercury is an incredible offering from the Kodi UK TV repository. This add-on incorporates top-grade scrapers and gets you the best quality streaming links. You can watch movies, TV series, documentaries, and a lot more through Mercury Kodi add-on. The add-on works on most of the popular streaming platforms like FireStick, Android TV Boxes, Computers, and more. The add-on is currently being updated regularly with the latest movie releases and TV episodes. Give it a try!
DejaVu add-on offers a wonderful line-up of streaming content including your favorite movies and series. You may also stream documentaries, sports-related content, content for Kids and a lot more. The easy to use categories on the main window makes sure you have absolutely no difficulty exploring and browsing the videos. Using both, torrenting and scraping technologies, DejaVu Kodi add-on fetches top-notch streams. It works great when you pair it with Real Debrid. At this moment, DejaVu is one of the best Kodi add-ons to have.
Update: The add-on is now available as Greased Lightning Movie Cinema
The developers of popular Movie Theater Butter Preset Max add-ons have released another solid on-demand add-on called MTB’s Greased Lightning – Fast AutoPlay. The auto-play is indeed fast. It takes just a few seconds to find and play the working stream. That’s not all though. Greased Lightning has a huge collection of on-demand video content too. While all your favorite Movies and Shows are right there, the add-on gives you plenty of other streaming choices. You can watch documentaries, listen to podcasts and music, stream classics, and a lot more. Navigation is delightfully fast too. The add-on also allows Real Debrid and Trakt sign in for a better streaming experience.
The USS Defiant is a new add-on (as I write this guide) for the on-demand streaming of Movies & Shows. You will also find various special streaming categories like Kings of Horror, Kung Fu, Urban, etc.
The scrapers used by this add-on are doing a decent job and pulling quality streams. However, it works best with Real Debrid that lets you access premium links.
The add-on is easy to install, set up, as well as easy to use. It offers smooth performance on all types of Kodi compatible devices.
Death From Above is a collection of all the add-ons from the team of developers called Falcon. This add-on offers an enormous collection of movies, shows, documentaries, content for kids, and more.
Death from Above is not a part of any repository. You can install it directly from a zip file. This add-on currently has a library of eight Falcon add-ons. However, all the add-ons may not work. When I checked it last while writing this piece, four add-ons were functional. Even though some add-ons do not work, others do offer plenty of content for hours of entertainment.
Death from Above also offers Real-Debrid integration, thereby giving you access to higher quality and Full HD streams. The layout is simple, allowing you to quickly access your favorite add-on from the collection. Since Death From Above is a collection of a bunch of add-ons, it takes a few minutes to install. However, it is still worth a try.

Locutus add-on is one of the newest entries to this list of the best add-ons for Kodi. This add-on comes from the Diamond Build Repo, which provides several add-ons and Kodi builds.
Locutus add-ons works only with the Debrid services like Real Debrid and Premiumize. I recommend using it with Real Debrid. It is the best premium link generator at this time.
With Locutus add-on, you can watch movies, shows, documentaries, and a lot more. Besides regular streaming categories, you will also find various special options like YouTube Theater, 1-Click Movies, and more. It is a good add-on to have.
Borg add-on is one of the newer entries to this list of best add-ons for Kodi. With this add-on, you can watch movies and TV Shows.
You will find several working streaming links. However, I recommend pairing Borg with Real Debrid for a better streaming experience.
Borg lets you explore the content through regular categories like Movies and TV Shows. It also supports Trakt integration in case you want to sync your streaming history across various platforms.
If you are looking for a replacement for 13Clowns Kodi add-on, IT Kodi add-on by Fladnag might just be the right pick for you. This on-demand add-on boasts of a sizable collection of movies and shows. It also is home to a variety of other types of video content including documentaries, youtube videos, content for kids, and more. This add-on is getting a lot of good links as I write this guide. It looks promising and I hope it continues to deliver quality service in the future as well. IT is part of the T2K Repo.
Alvin Kodi add-on is the part of a rather unknown repository Octopus (as I write this). However, I am kind of grateful that I ran into it. This add-on looks like a fork of Exodus V8. Both have similar – if not completely the same – layout. Alvin is pulling a lot of quality links and many of them in 1080p. It has a big content library too. Even though you will not find a lot of fancy categories, if you are looking for a simple add-on that makes it easy for you to stream movies and shows in high-quality, you should definitely consider Alvin add-on.
Clown’s Replica is a fork and revamped version of the 13Clowns add-on. The 13Clowns add-on was once extremely popular. However, it had to be taken down due to unavoidable circumstances.
With Clown’s Replica, you can enjoy tons of movies and shows. It also features the category IPTV Area for live TV streaming. Additionally, it offers several extras including Documentaries, Sports Area, Kids Area, Radio, and more.
Clown’s Replica looks like a decent option to watch on-demand content.
Update: This add-on may not be the most reliable choice anymore. Please try one of the other add-ons on this list. If it doesn’t work for a while, I will remove it from the list.
A Pirate’s Life for Me Kodi add-on brings to you on-demand content, including Movies & TV Shows through the new, but quickly catching up technology called torrent-caching. This add-on looks up for the torrent links all over the web and lines them up for playback. While you will find some free streaming options, A Pirate’s Life for Me is essentially a premium add-on. You must use Real Debrid or Premiumize to get the best out of it.
There is a big library of movies and shows waiting to be explored. With premium caching of torrents, you can expect much higher quality playback and better performance. The add-on also features an IPTV section, but it isn’t very great. The non-premium options also don’t work really well. As I said, use it with a premium service and you will enjoy it more.
T2K 1 Click Movie Kodi add-on, as the name gives it away, is a one-click (nearly) movie playback service. Just select the movie you want to watch and pick one of the prepicked streaming links from the list. You have your favorite movie already streaming. T2K 1 Click Movie is an incredibly fast add-on. It lets you quickly navigate to the list of the movies, instantly pops up the links, and instantly plays the videos.
I am not satisfied with its movie library though. The add-on misses some of the most sought-after movie titles, which are almost ubiquitous in all other on-demand add-ons. The layout of the add-on isn’t too great too. There is just one free category to choose from. There is another premium category for Real-Debrid users. That’s pretty much it.
That said, I still recommend T2K 1 Click Movie because it has some good movies. And, it’s a total delight to see them play that fast. Go ahead and give it a try.

DeathStar isn’t like your regular entertainment add-ons you come across frequently. You install one adIt is an add-on with a delightful twist. DeathStar is a concoction of more than 35 different Kodi add-ons. d-on and you have access to a whole library of add-ons for all your streaming needs. Whether you like to watch on-demand content or Live TV, sports content or kids’ movies and shows, DeathStar has it all.
DeathStar is the outcome of the collaboration of ten reputed Kodi developers. Since it is maintained by multiple developers, it always delivers high-quality performance. Install DeathStar in less than 5 minutes from the Ezzer Macs repository and get ready for an awesome streaming experience.

Scrubs is another on-demand add-on that makes it to our list of best Kodi add-ons. It is an Exodus fork, but I guess there is no need to mention that it is better than its predecessor. Even though Exodus is still hanging on, albeit, by a thin thread, Scrubs brings you several enhancements and improvements. Scrubs add-on keeps the layout the same with familiar categories like Movies, TV Shows, My Movies, My TV Shows, New Movies. This makes it easier for you to navigate.
Scrubs fetches a lot of links and rather quickly. But, don’t expect to find a lot of 1080, full HD streams. And, I have noticed that a lot of 720p and SD links also do not play. This means you will have to check a few links before you could discover a working one. Things get better if you sign in with your Real-Debrid account.
Repo: Jew Repo
Smaug Kodi add-on is primarily for watching Movies and Shows. However, it also features special sections like Documentaries, Kids Area, YouTube, and Smaug Monthly Collection.
The add-on is the part of one of the newer repositories – Nitron Repo. As I write this guide, Smaug pulls tons of quality links. However, I recommend that you use it with Real Debrid for consistency in performance.
Smaug looks like a good add-on as of now. You may give it a try.
UK Turk Playlists is a very popular and highly downloaded Kodi add-on for Amazon Fire TV. It not only offers an amazing library of movies and TV Shows but also hosts Turkish Movies & Shows, Cartoons, CCTV, Live TV, Stand-up Comedy, Documentaries, Food Porn and much more. The UI is pretty neat and simple and the add-on works flawlessly thus justifying its appearance on this list of top Kodi add-ons. You can download it from Turk Repo –

What is the most popular & best add-on?
Exodus Redux is the most popular Kodi add-on at this time. This add-on offers on-demand streaming options including Movies and TV Shows. It is the fork of the Exodus add-on, which was also extremely popular once.
Always remember that before you start streaming with Kodi add-ons / Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Kodi users are strongly advised to connect to a VPN while streaming. A VPN for Kodi will bypass ISP throttling, Government Surveillance, and geo-restriction on popular Add-ons. I always connect ExpressVPN on all my streaming devices and I suggest you do the same.
ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Here’s how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server. That’s all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
Once you are protected with a VPN, you can start installing Kodi add-ons with confidence.
This list of the Best Kodi add-ons may help you identify which are currently working and will work best for your devices.
There are still a lot of other Kodi add-ons that are available for testing and review. Drop us a message for your comments below.
