Scythe Kodi Addon Install Guide: All-in-one Movies, TV, IPTV

The Scythe Kodi addon is a nice all-in-one source for movies, TV, and IPTV. As well, check out the three special sections for some special niche content.

Scythe comes from  the Sandman Repo, formally known as Team Reaper. The repo also has a standalone TV One Kodi addon, which is the base for the IPTV section in Scythe as well.

On October 28th, Scythe was updated to v2.2. We refreshed the sections below for you so that they are current.

If you see a Message when you launch the addon that the server is down, refer to the troubleshooting fix at the bottom of this guide.
