Best Kodi Addons: April 2018
PureSports – PureStreams is an addon focuses specifically on, you guessed it, sports. It is a simple addon that focuses on all of the major sports in the world. It pulls IPTV streams from the public internet.
In addition top specific sports, the addon also contains live IPTV channels.
A lot of the live links are Acestream based, which isn’t a bad thing. Acestream links share the load amongst the users streaming, which are beneficial for popular links. They’ve become the standard for live IPTV on Kodi nowadays, so you are best to install Plexus and learn how to use and interact with them. Don’t forget to enable your VPN to hide your connection while you stream acestream links.

Incursion is a fork of the old Covenant addon. This means that it is a multi-source movies + TV source that searches over 30 websites on the internet for publicly available streams.
The addon uses the new ResolveURL dependency to resolve links from the internet for all popular file hosts. All Exodus/Covenant forks who use a URL Resolver module operate very similarly without much for differences. However, Incursion has cleaned up the back end code, made things run smooth, and has added new features for everyone to enjoy.
In addition, Incursion comes with other nice features including full Trakt support, full Real-Debrid support, library integration, and more. For those people who were fans of Exodus or Covenant, Incursion should feel very familiar and is worth looking into.

Death Streams RD is a newer Kodi addon but is already a best Kodi addons selection. The addon is made for those who have a Real-Debrid subscription. The addon doesn’t work like a traditional multi-source addon that has a ton of free sources with Real-Debrid functionality added on top. Death Streams RD ONLY uses premium Debrid sources and file hosts.
The benefit to this is that users don’t have to wait for the addon to load through non-premium sources. You save a lot of time navigating and retrieving links within the addon. All of the best links in Kodi come from Debrid sources anyway.
There is also a non-premium version of Death Streams available, which operates like a more traditional multi-source fork (see Neptune Rising above).

Elementum uses another method to grab movie + TV related content off of the internet – torrents. Torrent based streaming has been around for years. The premise is that “seeders” who host content on their computer share parts of a file to “leechers” who want to download the file. When a leecher completely downloads a show, they become a seeder until they delete the file.
Elementum automates this process completely. You become a leecher when you watch a file, which is automatically deleted when it is finished. You share your connection while you have your stream open, so we recommend a VPN to be enabled.
The advantage to Elementum is that you’ll receive some more unique content. All of the multi-source addons available are simply window dressing the same code, files, and links. Torrents provide a unique source for content.

Documented.HD fills an important gap in every setup of the best Kodi addons – documentaries. Multi-source addons provide information on movies and TV, but documentaries have risen in popularity over the last few years and are one of the most popular niche requests we get.
Documented.HD is an awesome source for everything from conspiracy theories to informatin on history, bitcoin, religion, and everything else in between.
Content in the addon is automatically updated and there are hundreds of hours worth of content to check out. If you are a documentary fan, this is the best addon for that category in our opinion.

Cartoons8 is a popular cartoons and anime Kodi addon originally created by Metalkettle. In the past month, it was revived and brought back to life by Goliath, who also runs the Picasso addon.. Similarly to Documented.HD did for documentaries, Cartoon Crazy does what common multi-source addons don’t do that great for today. They use sources specific for animated content to bring content right to your Kodi system.
Cartoons8 contains four dedicated sources for anime and cartoon content. The addon is a search engine which returns videos streams from those sites. It is dedicated to this niche and is a great source for content!
If you are a fan of cartoons and anime, you need to install the Cartoons8 addon.

SkyNet is our pick for top playlist Kodi addon this month. A playlist Kodi addon contains specific sections worth of content that is custom curated and maintained by one or more developers. SkyNet has been around for a while and was just updated to a new working version with updated streams for everyone.
SkyNet comes with everything from movies and TV to sports, IPTV, specialty boxsets, and more. As well, SkyNet comes linked back to Maverick TV, Dogs Bollocks, Supremacy, and At the Flix, making it a really great all-inclusive addon.

MP3 Streams is.a long running Kodi addon specializing in music content. It has shifted development through a few people in the Kodi community, but currently sits in the Illuminati Repo.
MP3 Streams allows you to stream virtually any song in the entire world, any time you want. It pulls metadata for songs from the internet including Billboard charts, specialty playlists, and other categories. When you click on a link for a song, the addon resolves a free link off of the internet and streams it on your Kodi box.
There have been some music video addons that present nicer visually, but none of them have the consistency of MP3 Streams. Use this addon and turn your Kodi system into a music DJ.

cCloud is an addon for live IPTV content. It contains over 1000 channels from all around the world, sorted into categories and also available for searching.
Live TV in Kodi can be very finicky as any long-time user will tell you. The reason is because links are constantly changing on the internet, which requires Kodi developers to manually change them on their end each time. As well, the more popular a channel is, the more lag and buffer there is for everybody streaming.
cCloud has been around for a while and has a pretty big community outside of Kodi, which is positive. Links can be updated by anybody using the service, increasing the chance that it will be live when you want to watch something. If you need a free live IPTV source, cCloud makes our list of best Kodi addons for being the best of a tough group to satisfy.

SportsDevil is the original live sports addon for Kodi. The addon searches a ton of internet websites on the public internet to return live sports information for Kodi users to enjoy. Links in the addon range from a ton of different sources and quality ranges from 480p up to 720p mostly.
SportsDevil has gone through a number of Kodi developers, but the addon still carries on. The latest iteration has appeared from Kodibae, who appears to have a nice and working version fo the addon to check out.
The addon contains a mix of direct links and acestreams, providing a good flexibility in content. As mentioned earlier, live streaming addons is Kodi can be very hit and miss, but SportsDevil is always worth a look.
