The Elysium Kodi addon is the rebranded Zen addon, formerly developed by Schism. After Schism retired from developing the addon, the Noobs and Nerds community decided to step up and continue development on it. To avoid confusion in the name and give Schism a break from question, the addon has been rebranded as Elysium going forward.

Elysium (Zen) started off as an Exodus fork, meaning it is a multi-source movie and TV show addon similar to Exodus that pulls content from a wide variety of websites. The addon has taken a life of its own though and has turned into a reliable source for content.

In the future, the scrapers in the Elysium Kodi addon will be replaced with NaN scrapers, which is used by the Bob addon to return links. This will make development of both Elysium and Bob consistent and easier in the future.

The add-on is part of the Noobs and Nerds repo, so follow our guide below and install the Elysium Kodi add-on today.
