Probably one of the most used add-ons when it comes to British soap operas and sport, BBC iPlayer, remains to this day Kodi’s most popular add-on. Loaded with all live programming and catch-up TV features available on the website and mobile apps, iPlayer is your one stop for news, live radio, sports, TV series and documentaries if you have the taste for it. Do remember that the iPlayer WWW add-on is unofficial and may misbehave and is not associated with the BBC in anyway.
iPlayer add-on provides you a huge range of categories including highlights, live radio, live TV, programme lists, categories, a search feature, red button feature & much more. The add-on is available in the Kodi Add-on repository available by default in every Kodi media centre version.
Kodi streaming users who have several add-ons installed in the media centre will definitely love MetalliQ. MetalliQ is an add-on dedicated to search for your favourite media from across all video streaming add-ons saving you a whole lot of effort & time. To download MetalliQ you will have to download the Q Repository from here.
Delivering exactly what is promises, I really liked how simply and self-acting MetalliQ is. The amazing fact is the add-ons ability to fetch all active links, as my test confirmed.
Available through the noobs & nerds repository, BOB is not supported by the Kodi team. BOB unrestricted add-on is the revival of the team that previously brought us the renowned Phoenix add-on. BOB is a phenomenal add-on offering a massive library that includes live TV, movies, TV shows, kids entertainment, music, sports and much more.
The Valhalla section was my favourite with something for everyone in it. You will find categorized entertainment by genre and even a ‘DC vs Marvel’ section giving you access to all released comic inspired movies.

NBC Sports Live Extra is the official add-on of the network providing Kodi fans with live programming, Highlights, Replays and featured content from the network. The add-on is available through the eracnophobia repository, which can be downloaded from here. Use the Install from Zip File Option to download the repo and Install from Repository option to get the NBC Sports Live Extra add-on.
NBC Sports Live Extra being an official add-on requires that you authorize your Kodi device before you watch anything on it. While you can watch anything listed in green letter on NBC Sports Live Extra, those in all other colors is premium content. Some content in the Featured section and most in the Highlights section is available to watch for free. Authorizing your device to watch NBC Sports Live Extra is very simple.

- It will authorize your device allowing you to watch NBC Sports Extra instantly
18: FTV (FilmOn TV)
After the Fusion repository was taken down, all add-ons hosted by TVADDONS were either discontinued or moved to other repositories. The renowned FilmOn TV or FTV add-on also suffered the same fate and was eventually discontinued. Sadly, I couldn’t find any other repos that host FTV.
One of the very few Kodi add-ons which can be called an all-rounder is Sanctuary, available through the back2basics repository. The add-on has a massive library including both IPTV channels & VoD content, for everyone. There are especially lots of cartoons for kids plus a sports section, multiple IPTV sections, and a TV guide to choose from.
The feature that I loved in Sanctuary was its Freeview & Premium channels from the United Kingdom. You will need a VPN to watch them, I however couldn’t get any of them to work with my VPN service so I will try again from home. I really want to get Sky Atlantic to work because it airs Game of Thrones live and ITV where I can watch the English Premier League for free. Do remember that not all sources work on Sanctuary and they require VPN to get working.
Amazing Anime Add-ons to Enjoy on Kodi
Being a Manga & Anime fan, the genre was the first category I added to both my Kodi Jarvis & then my Kodi Krypton Estuary desktops. Kodi offers a massive selection of anime & HD cartoons through various add-ons including those streaming directly through torrents.
Phoenix was my favorite & first choice Kodi add-ons to search for the latest Anime series.Until recently the add-on for working fine till it completely stopped working hence leaving us with many different anime add-ons.
So, I embarked on a research missionto find thelatest & best anime Kodi add-ons, and these are the one I found working perfectly:
Our countdown begins with AnimeGo which is possibly the best Anime add-on currently running on Kodi. The add-on is fully functional and was recently updated with latest animeTV series & movies.One thing that you will love is that all features in the AnimeGo menu works, there are no dead links that I have come across yet.
AnimeGo entertainment has been brilliantly categorized into lists of:
- Movies (Alphabetical &Top Rated)
- Shows(Alphabetical & Top Rated)
- Movies & TV Shows Genres
- A dedicated search option, and
- Recently added movies & TV Shows
Apart from being one of my favorite &most highly rated Kodi add-ons, AnimeGo, is a great place to get the latest in anime entertainment on Kodi. Install the AnimeGo add-on by downloading the DK-XBMC repository zip file from here.
Second on our countdown is Metal Kettle repository’s Cartoon8 add-on with its own dedicated anime section. With categorized anime inNew & Hot, Newly Added, Popular, and Alphabetical lists, plus, an embedded search feature the add-on is for the usual anime fanatic.
The good thing about Cartoons8 is that the add-on is regularly updated allows watching from a massive anime & manga library. The only issue is that some features are unavailable at time, so do keep that in mind. Cartoons8 is not an official Kodi add-on and is thus not supported on the official forums, but you can contact the creator of the add-on on Twitter @Metal_Kettle.
AnimeHere is another brilliant anime Kodi add-on from DKNight the creator of AnimeGo. AnimeHere offers a better library, navigation and streaming sources. The add-on has a similar interface to that of AnimeGo, but has slightly different categories and the links are always active.
Loaded with all new series including “Avatar: Legend of Korra” to “Hunter X Hunter”AnimeHere is a superb add-onto have on Kodi to watch latest anime series & movies. I really loved the Latest Updated Anime and Top Anime categories since you get all the latest anime episodes without having to search for them.
The Genre list is simply awesome,packed with everything from adventure, action, family, horror, drama and a lot more. The amazing thing is every link I have watched works, some series will not have links though and you will have to wait till the series or movie is made available.
Simple and easy to go around AnimeRam is a great solution for Kodi mobile for its minimal features,it is available through the SuperRepo repository. The add-on is built for latest anime series episodes that are routinely updated. The interface displays only two categories Latest & List All plus a search option to quickly find your favorite anime series.
The alphabetically categorized library is VAST, and I mean its ginormous!
There was so much to browse through, new series and some brilliant quality links, most of whom worked just fine. For some reason VideoWeed links were not working for any of the series listed. AnimeRam is a great add-on to have if you like something simpler and fast to stream anime TV series, have a go and remember to leave a review for the add-on in the comments area.
Anime44 is a well-designed Kodi add-on for anime, and is available through the SuperRepo repository. The categories are very simple:
- TV Series
- Ongoing series, and
- New series
Apart from the categories you are blessed with a search feature that actually works and links more or less the same as the AnimeHere add-on. Do remember that the Anime Movies section does not work yet, and offers no media to watch.
So, with no movies available Anime44 is a purely TV series streaming option. The TV series section is a true blessing with excellent alphabetically categorized series,ongoing series, completed series, popular series and recent series to choose from.
So, that brings us to the end of our top 5 anime Kodi add-ons. Just so one of the add-ons above fail to work for you, here are some honorable mentions you can check out:
- tv (requires registering a free account)
- Animexx Videos
- Anime Static
It is hands-down the best anime Kodi add-on that has some resourceful features easy enough to meet the expectations of anime fans. The search menu in Masterani is very versatile where over 40+ genre are available to search from. There is no way you couldn’t find an anime content to your liking.
You can find Masterani add-on from Alleidun’s repository where Alleidun is the author of the add-on. Multiple streaming links could be found for a single episode of a TV show or movies which makes it highly preferable for anime lovers.
FunimationNOW is an amazing anime Kodi add-on where you can watch SD and HD videos depending on your internet speed. All the anime content is dubbed in Japanese and English which covers the largest anime fan-base.
This anime add-on is already available in Kodi, you just need to install by clicking on add-ons > Video Add-ons > Options tab present at the bottom > Get more. The premium version of this add-on will have zero buffering to watch videos hassle-free.
Amongst the popular anime add-ons, KissAnime is by far the easiest of the Kodi add-ons and is also a community favorite when watching anime content. This anime add-on is definitely the one you need to have it on your Kodi because of its media library flourishing from new and old anime content.
Anime-IPTV has come in to existence with the combination and collaboration of several different anime add-ons. Its unique feature being easy to navigate despite the fact that its menu options are not in English. You can still find any videos by clicking on the search icon.
You may find a few bad links every now and then, but considering the quality and availability of the videos is concerned, Anime-IPTV beats many Kodi add-ons.
With more than 25,000 episodes and 15,000 hours of officially-licensed anime content, Crunchyroll is the leading global destination. Japanese and Asian anime content is translated to multiple languages by professionals within few minutes after its airing on Japanese and Asian TV channels.
Crunchyroll application for mobile devices are also available including applications for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE, Xbox One, and many other platforms. You can find all the latest anime content in Crunchyroll Kodi add-on that you may never find anywhere else.
AnimeFTW.tv is a brilliant Anime add-on for those with a sweet tooth for Japanese animated series. Now loaded with over 1400 anime series with subtitles available through Kodi it is ideal for Kodi Android users. AnimeFTW.tv is not available through a repository and requires you download the zip file for the add-on from GitHub, get it here.
Best Fun Kodi Cartoon addons Kids will Love
Kodi is truly a universe of entertainment for streaming fans around the worl no matter what age and preference. There is everything to choose from live TV, sports, lifestyle, movies, TV shows, documentaries, foreign cinema, anime, cartoons and much more. While we usually discuss & list add-ons for sports, movies and TV shows, it’s finally time to offer some giggles to the little ones.
So, I previewed the best cartoon addons on Kodi that kids will love, here are my top picks:
31: Cartoon HD
Available through Kodi’s SuperRepo repository, CartoonHD is not really the best Kodi add-on for cartoons, just my favorite one. CartoonHD known primarily for its superb streaming library of children’s entertainment, also boasts a massive library of popular & trending movies and TV shows.
I have previously used CartoonHD on Android, so to have the add-on with Kodi is just a great bonus. CartoonHD doesn’t offer the latest children’s entertainment compared to other add-ons but the good aspect is that all links work. There is also a search option so you don’t have to go through the entire library to look for your favorite media. The reason I really like CartoonHD is for its buffer free sources, seldom will you come across an add-on as stable as CartoonHD.
32: Kiddie Cartoons
Available to download through the MetalKettle & SuperRepo repositories, Kiddie Cartoons is known for its absolutely amazing categorized library of cartoons and anime titles. KiddieCartoons has something for every child from Barney the dinosaur to Barbie adventures.
Children can also indulge in a long list of anime and educational cartoons to learn as they enjoy themselves.
In my opinion B99TV is the best cartoon add-on for Kids on Kodi. The add-on only offers cartoons categorized by series, episodes, studio and search. The best feature of B99TV is its regularly updated library of sources and new media.
B99TV offers cartoons from the 90’s, a great selection of animated movies, Disney entertainment and much more in a single add-on.
34: Bobby’s Cartoons
A similar add-on to B99TV, Bobby’s Cartoons deserves its place amongst the top Kodi cartoon add-ons. Although not categorized like B99TV and KiddieCartoons, the add-on offers a great selection of entertainment for both children and for adults.
Let the little ones enjoy classics from Disney while you enjoy iconic shows like Family Guy, Spiderman, Guardians of the Galaxy and many others.
Kodi Add-Ons For Android
Kodi media center has literally swept streaming fans across the world, largely due to its wide compatibility with all major operating systems, and Android is no exception. Compatible with any device running Android 4.2 and higher (phones, boxes & sticks), Kodi is an all in one media center to catalog & view your videos, photos and music. The Kodi Android app is now optimized with a brand new skin and touch features to make it more user friend for touch screen devices too.
The benefit of installing Kodi video & IPTV add-ons, allows viewers to access a massive selection of entertainment directly on Android powered devices. So, to ensure users get the best entertainment from on your Android devices, I have assorted the some cool add-ons for Kodi Android users:
- Genesis Reborn
- 1080p Movies
39: NaN Tutorials Add-ons
Probably one of the most useful and helpful add-ons to learn the bits & bolts of Kodi is the NaN Tutorials add-on. Powered by the Noobs and Nerds repository, also deriving its name NaN from it, the add-on gives you access to various video tutorials for Kodi features, settings, hardware and live chat services. The add-on also provides troubleshooting and fixes for different Kodi errors, while offering complete guides for Kodi on Android, Linux, Raspberry PI, Xbox and PC Windows.
40: Football Replays
A popular sports add-on available through the Back to Basic repository is a decent add-on to watch international & club football matches. I didn’t have any live matches listed to test but the highlights section was working just fine.
41: iStreams or Imperial Streams
Available from both the Mucky Duck Repo and Kodi Super Repo are now shutdown. None of the add-ons from Mucky Duck repository allowed streaming of any media when I tested it on Kodi Krypton v17. If anyone does get either to work, let us know.

After a great response from all of you, the votes are in and the winner is …Zen. The people have spoken, Zen is the best Kodi Add-on for july 2017.
Why Is Zen Emerging As The Most Popular Kodi add-on?
While Exodus remains one of the most used Kodi add-ons for high quality movies, TV shows, and anime,Zenhas suddenly swept the Kodi streaming userslike a storm. Apart from the conventional features of Exodus, and Phoenix, Zen introduces some amazing features to the bundle. Powered by faster and better HQ sources for videos.
One of my favorite additions in Zen was its watch list feature for both movies & TV shows. This allows me to create my weekend and holiday playlists to marathon through on days off. Similarly the Featured, Trending, Top rated, Marvel Universe, and Disney Collection menus available on the home screen are also excellent quick access features added within Zen. Brilliant features also include a TV calendar menu, an Airing today menu, and Returning & New TV show menus added to make Zen much simpler than other comparable add-ons. But probably, the pick of Zen’s amazing features is its superb “In Progress” feature that allows you to catch up to any incomplete movies or TV series you left half way.
Another brilliant aspect makes Zen the most popular user choice for streaming these days, which being its ability to fetch video sources from multiple HQ websites that also include premium sources including Alluc and Real Debrid
