Kodi is in the news a lot at the moment, and not for the best reasons. Although using the software itself isn’t illegal, third-party add-ons that make it possible to stream copyrighted content have caught the attention of anti-piracy groups, resulting in lawsuits.
Inevitably, the threat of legal action, and possibly jail time, has spooked a lot of third-party add-on creators, and we’ve seen many of these disappear in recent months.
For many people, Exodus is the number one Kodi add-on. It’s how a large portion of users stream the latest TV shows and movies, but things are not looking great for the add-on. It hasn’t been updated since May, and it’s already beginning to stop functioning as intended. You can still use it, but it requires some effort to fix the many issues, and things will only get worse.
But while Exodus is clearly on its way out, there are still plenty of alternatives to choose from, including Covenant, which is actually being actively maintained by some former Exodus developers.
Installing the add-on can be done through the Smash Repo or Ares Project repositories. Follow these steps:
Naturally, we wouldn’t suggest you use Covenant to watch any illegal content, but should you choose to ignore our advice, consider using a VPN to mask your identity.
