This guide will provide the Best Kodi Addons for streaming free movies and TV shows.
Kodi add-ons are extensions that can be installed from repositories within the Kodi software.
Add-ons work on any compatible Kodi device, which includes streaming devices like the Amazon Firestick, Fire TV, Android devices, Mac, Windows PC, and Linux.
Quick List of the Best Kodi Addons (December 2023)
- The Crew
- Black Lightning
The best way to use most add-ons is by integrating Real-Debrid. This is a premium service that provides the highest-quality streaming links.
Official vs. Unverified Kodi Addons
Kodi is a legal and open-source media software. However, there are hundreds of 3rd-party add-ons that are not available inside Kodi’s official repository.
Some unverified add-ons provide access to pirated or copyrighted content without the proper licensing.
IPTV Wire cannot verify whether an add-on carries the proper licensing, so it’s important for users to research the legality of copyrighted content.
