If you are an avid Kodi user, you probably know about the famed and celebrated Exodus add-on. It is one of the best extensions available for streaming movies, TV shows, and live channels. However, due to the major UK crackdown on blocking illegal streams, Exodus has come into the limelight of many governmental agencies.

At the same time, it promises to improve upon its predecessor, while utilizing the same design and functionality. Best part of all: it is developer supported, all account integrations work, and the search engine is working perfectly. This means, hope is not lost and you can finally resume watching your favorite TV shows, movies, and live channels FREELY again!

Covenant vs. Exodus
As mentioned earlier, Covenant is a replacement for the Exodus extension. It is the successor of the add-on, which typically utilizes the same functionality and design. Since Exodus is no longer working, it is safe to say that Covenant definitely proves to be an excellent alternative. It has a working search engine, a large collection of movies/TV shows, and is easily available on a multitude of repos. These include Super, Kodi Israel, Colossus, and Smash repositories.
Covenant vs. Elysium
Most of the Kodi add-ons are not working, due to the recent crackdown against many famous developers. Among these, include the famous Elysium, which once held great reputation in the marketplace of third-party add-ons. However, there is nothing in comparison to Covenant add-on. It boasts a clean outlook and provides a stable stream for all movies and TV shows.
How to Unblock Covenant in Australia?

By masking your IP address and shifting to another location, you can gain access to the extension for watching your favorite TV shows/movies instantly.

Covenant Not Working – Error Troubleshooting
Many Kodi users have reported to experiencing issues while trying to download and install the Covenant add-on. This is primarily because of the large number of requests from individuals around the world trying to access the Colossal Repository. Since the Covenant Kodi add-on currently exists in only one location, you will have to wait for the temporary issue to get resolved itself.
Conversely, if you have finally succeeded on downloading the Colossal Repository, but are receiving an error message like “Add-on Installation Failed” – this is also due to massive server load. Do not give up on installing Covenant. Keep trying to download the add-on and you will succeed. We also experienced a little trouble in installing the add-on in one-go. It took several attempts to complete the process.
Covenant on Kodi – Failed to Install Dependency
There are many reasons why you must be seeing the “Failed to Install Dependency” error while installing Covenant or any other add-on for the matter. The first step to take is check the error logs in the “temp” folder on your Android devices. Look for signs that highlight the reason for seeing the error and that should point you where the problem exists.
If the above option does not work, check to see whether you also notice a “Failed to install URL Resolver” error. If you see this, it is a clear sign that you are using a broken Kodi repository. To solve the issue, consider deactivating all the repositories that do not work anymore. Sometimes working repos may try grabbing info from broken repos, resulting in failure of installation.
You can deactivate repositories by going to add-ons > My add-ons > Add-on Repositories > Select the one you want to remove > Disable. Another way to overcome the “Failed to Install Dependency” error is to direct install via zip file.
Stay Anonymous Kodi Lovers!
Before we let you guys off, a word of advice: do no forget to use a VPN when using Kodi. Many users have received copyright infringement notices for streaming TV shows, movies, and sports through various add-ons. If you want to keep your identity safe and protect your internet activity, it is time you considered using a VPN too. By masking your IP address and encrypting your traffic, you can feel assured to steer clear from local ISPs and governmental agencies, especially if you live in a country with strict internet laws.
