If you’re a cord-cutter, Kodi is one of the best apps to deploy on your devices. Not only does the interface provide an easy way for you to access your library of locally-saved TV series and movies, but there’s also an endless list of Kodi addons that you can use to watch even more content.
Today, we’re going to look at the best Kodi addons for watching TV shows. Which have the most extensive library of content? Which have the most reliable streams? Keep reading to learn more.
1. The Crew
The hottest Kodi addon of 2020 is The Crew. A fork of the once-popular Exodus, The Crew has lots of categories for TV shows and also offers standup comedy, sports, adult content, and even some live TV.
Users who are looking for free Netflix originals will love the addon. It has big-name titles such as Stranger Things, House of Cards, Ozark, and more.
While the live TV is welcome, there are better options out there. Check out our article if you’d like to see some of the Kodi live TV addons we currently recommend.
The service has a Telegram support channel if you need help.
If you enjoy cartoons and anime, you need to install the WatchNixToons2. It offers the latest releases, dubbed anime, subbed anime, and classic shows from your youth.
The addon is available from the Doko repo.
One of the newest Kodi addons on the list, Mercury provides streams of TV shows and movies.
The addon offers one-click playback for many titles, meaning the addon will automatically choose the most appropriate working feed when you hit the play button; you won’t need to go digging through lists of sources to find a video that works.
You can download Mercury from the Déjà Vu repo.
4. Scrubs v2
Scrubs v2 is another Exodus fork. It is a “multi-scraper” addon. That means it scrapes various sources around the web and pulls all the results into a single list.
As such, you shouldn’t need to use a VPN to access videos; so many sources are scraped that one should work no matter where you are. Of course, we’d still recommend using a VPN from a privacy standpoint—you don’t want to be dealing with speed throttling in the middle of a great episode.
The addon is available in the Jew repo.
If you want Spanish-language TV shows, make sure you install the Alfa addon. At the time of writing, it is the best Kodi addon for free series and movies from Latin America, and also has a massive collection of Latino shows from the US.
In addition to TV series and movies, Alfa offers documentaries, Spanish-language anime, and even some downloadable content.
Get Alfa from the A4K repo.
6. Disney Plus
If you have a Disney+ subscription, make sure you add the new Disney+ Kodi addon. It will let you watch all the TV shows and movies that are available on the platform.
If you enjoy Indian TV shows, you need to make Einthusan part of your Kodi setup. It has TV series and movies from Bollywood and Indywood. Within the addon, you will find sections for many Indian languages, including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Bengali, Marathi, and Punjabi.
You will find Einthusan along with Alfa in the A4K repo.
Uranus has its roots in Elysium and Exodus, meaning you know what to expect when you install the addon.
Although it has masses of free TV series for you to watch, be aware that since late 2019, Uranus uses real-time torrent streams for its sources. Torrent streams reduce buffering (good!) but are more likely to get you in trouble with your ISP if you forget to turn on your VPN (bad!).
