The Incursion Kodi addon is one of the most impressive forks of Covenant (which itself is based off of Exodus and Genesis), arguably the most popular Kodi addon in existence. Find out about Incursion today including what new features and changes it has.
The Incursion Kodi addon is a multi-source Kodi addon based off of the old Covenant code base. Since it is multi-source based, it searches the public internet and retrieves streams, displaying them in an organized format. The advantage to the multi-source addon is that if one website goes offline, the addon still has other sources to pull content in from.
Following the closing of the Colossus Repository, there has been an influx of Covenant “forks”: Addons that take the same base code, rename it, and choose to add their own adjustments to and it give it its own personal flair. Unfortunately, this brings a lot of undeserved attention to bad forks who simply change the name, add no new features, and convince users to incorrectly think they have something new and improved. Incursion is not one of those: It has given users new features, updates, and improvements while offering excellent support.
Incursion scrapes over 50 websites for links. It has integrated imdb, trakt, real-debrid, premiumize, and ororo support.
NOTE: Incursion stores no content within the addon. It only knows how to search the public internet for data and information.

Incursion Kodi History
Covenant is a direct fork of the Covenant, Genesis and Exodus Kodi addons. Genesis was originally developed by Lambda and was the first popular multi-source Kodi addon.
The popularity of Genesis grew immensely through 2014 and 2015, when the addon came pre-installed on Kodi boxes from China promising “free TV” to buyers. The increase in popularity caused some sources in the addon to fight back against Kodi users by intentionally breaking their source because Kodi users do not give streaming websites advertising revenue that browser users do.
In the middle of 2015, lambda took Genesis offline and rebranded the addon (its first fork) as Exodus. Exodus had the same idea but with some key changes:
- Streams were presented in a randomized order so that one source was not getting hammered by Kodi users.
- Library integration was removed in favour of Trakt, a better third party library tool.
- Provider websites were moved to a central dependency called URLResolver. This meant that resolvers could be updated in URLResolver and would work in all addons using this dependency.
The addition of URLResolver was key for the Kodi community as a ton of new addons have popped up to use the dependency to offer links.
In early 2017, lambda retired from the Kodi addon community and Exodus support was taken over by a collection of developer. In May, TVAddons went offline following some legal action taken by Canada’s top media companies. New developers who had taken Exodus over decided to rebrand the addon as Covenant to respect the old legacy and moved the addon into the new Colossus Repo.
The Colossus Repository unexpectedly went offline in the fall of 2017 after many of its developers received cease and desist (C&D) letters from a conglomerate of media companies who are uninformed about the true actions taken by a Kodi addon. Since then, a few forks have popped up for Covenant and even from the Exodus code base. The Incursion Kodi addon is one of those forks, but it is better in that new features have been added to the addon. Also, scrapers have been fixed, allowing for more working links in the addon.

Incursion Kodi Tips
Check out some of the Incursion tips we’ve compiled from hundreds of questions and feedback submitted to us on social media.
- Watching old content in Incursion – The Incursion Kodi addon searches the public internet for media. The older and more obscure the content is, the less likely it is available on the internet. There is nothing you can do about this. A private usenet server, such as Easynews, is the best way to view old and obscure content.
- Seeing more streams in Incursion – Some users want to watch new content but still have trouble. Here are some common tips to improve your experience:
- If its a movie you want information on, make sure it is out on DVD. If the movie has just come out in theatres, stop searching Incursion for anything.
- If you live in the UK, your internet service provider may be blocking access to over half the available content in Incursion. Click here for more information.
- If you have an Android TV box, make sure your OS version is AT LEAST 5+. The Incursion Kodi addon is not supported on Android 4.4
- Make sure that you have at least Kodi 17.0 or greater (latest version is always preferred). Incursion is not supported on Kodi 16 or less.
- Seeing only trailers in Incursion – If you commonly only see trailers when looking for streams, click here.
- Categories sections not working – Have the category sections, such as People Watching, In Theatres, Most Popular, etc, stopped working? Click here for information on how to create your own TMDB API Key, which is responsible for retrieving this data in Kodi.
- GVideo links not working or missing – Gvideo media links are popular because they are fast and in good quality, but they are often prone to being removed from the internet. Click here for more information.
