In this article, we round up the best Kodi repositories for Kodi 18.8 and lower versions. These repositories work on FireStick and Fire TV devices along with other Kodi platforms like Android Mobiles and TV Boxes, Mac, Windows, Linux Computers, and more.
You can think of Kodi repositories as the storehouse of Kodi addons and builds. We talk a great deal about addons and builds but where do they actually come from? They come from the repositories. These repositories host a variety of addons. There are video addons that we use to stream movies, shows, live TV, etc. Then there are program add-ons meant for maintenance and utility services.
Whether you want to install an addon or a build, you will almost always need a repository. Most repositories host multiple addons. Some addons are available through multiple repositories. The addons on our Best Kodi Addons list and builds mentioned in our Best Kodi Builds list come from one or the other repository.
The purpose of this article is not just to make you aware of the top Kodi repositories. Along with the description of the repositories, I am also providing the general instructions to install them. It would be a good idea to keep a few of these repositories installed so that if you need an addon in the future, you could get it quickly.
How to Install any Repository on Kodi
If you have installed Kodi addons before, you would have installed repositories too. There are hardly any addons that can be installed directly from a zip file. Almost all the addons are installed through repositories. So, unless you install the repository, you can’t get the addon.
As I said before, I am providing the general instructions to install a Kodi repository. I will take the Lazy Kodi/Kodi Bae repository as an example here. However, the process is much the same for all repositories. I have provided the source URL with each repository. Follow these steps:
#1- Open your Kodi app and access Settings menu through the cog symbol in the top left
#2- Now go to System
#3- On the following window, select Add-ons (as you see it is on the left) and next switch ON the option Unknown Sources
#4- Click Yes to give your consent to keep Unknown Sources switched ON.
#6- Now go back to the Settings window and click File manager
#7- Click Add source
#8- Click where you see <None> on the window that follows
#9- Type in the following link exactly as provided: http://lazykodi.com
Note: This path is for the Lazy Kodi/Kodi Bae repository. If you are installing any other repo, use the appropriate link for that repo. I have provided the source links along with the description of each repository.
#10- Now name the source. It is up to you how you name it. I try to make it memorable and relevant. So, I am naming it lazy
#11- Now return to the Settings menu again and click Add-ons
#12- Click Install from zip file
#13- Look for the source name you typed in earlier and click it (like I am clicking lazy)
Now, click the folder Zips
#14- Find and click the zip file for the repository KODIBAE.zip
Note: Look for the zip file of the repository you are installing. This is just for demonstration purposes. Also, sometimes zip files are contained in a folder. Look around.
#15 – Now wait for the Add-on installed message. When this message is displayed, it means you have successfully installed the repository
#16- Now you may click Install from repository > Name of the repository > Add-on category (such as Video add-ons or Program add-ons) to install the addon of your choice
Best Kodi Repositories
Now that you know how to install a repository on Kodi, here comes the list of the top Kodi repositories.
Kodi Bae is also one of the most popular Kodi repositories among Kodi users. The content library of Kodi Bae is quite substantial. However, it is host to some really awesome Kodi addons. Instead of focussing on hundreds of them, Kodi Bae developers picked only the quality addons. You can install video addons like Seren, Ultimate IPTV, cCloud TV, Exodus, Indigo and more.
This repository also features several Kodi addons in other categories such as Program add-ons, services, Look and feel, Music, Picture, etc.
If you like watching movies and shows or even sports or live TV, you will want to try the Kodi Bae repository.
As I write this guide, Cy4root Repository is rather new. However, in a very short span of time, it has become quite popular.
In the Program Add-ons section, there is one notable addon TV Show – Next Aired. If you are looking for a free TV guide, this is the one you may try.
Cy4Root Repository also features Music Add-ons like Flixhat, Spotify, Squeezebox for Kodi, etc.
As of now, Cy4Root looks like a fast and reliable repository with a decent collection of diverse addons. Therefore, it has been added to our list of best repositories for Kodi.
EzzerMacs Wizard Repository
EzzerMacs has become a popular name in the Kodi world. This repository is the source to a whole host of Video Add-ons as well as many utility addons.
With these addons, you can stream movies, shows, live TV, sports, and just about anything you want.
From the Program Add-ons section, you can install the EzzerMac Wizard, which is the source to dozens of EzzerMac Kodi Builds. You can also get the SG Wizard addon from here. You will also find plenty of utility and maintenance addons for Kodi.
If you are looking for the best repository for Kodi, you would really want to try EzzerMacs Wizard Repository.
Golden Gun Repository
Update: Golden Gun Repository may either be temporarily or permanently down. I will keep checking from time to time.
Even though Golden Gun does not have as big a collection of addons as some of the other repos on this list, it still has some decent options.
If you are looking for an option to stream movies and shows, there is the I am Ego addon in the Video Add-ons section. You can also install addons like Resistance, and SportsDevil from here.
You can try the utility and maintenance addons like Metalgear Wizard and Metalgear GUI Wizard from the Program Add-ons category.
You can also install MP3 Streams addon from the Music Add-ons section. This addon was previously available on Kodil Repo that has now been taken down.
Update: T2K Repo is installing but you will get the error message “Could not connect to repository”
T2K Repo is the source from where you can get access to dozens of addons in the Video Add-ons, Program Add-ons, Music Add-ons section, and more.
The Program Add-ons category of this repository is best known for the T2K Wizard addon, which is the home to multiple T2K Builds, such as Fladnag Super Lite, The Last Kingdon, T2K Simple Build and more.
If you are looking for some Music addons, you can try BeatIT, TuneIn, T2K Music, and more.
T2K is a decent repository overall. Give it a try!
Repositories are the source of Kodi addons. However, if you have been using Kodi for some time, you must have noticed that the addons and repositories sometimes go offline or are shut down. This happens when the server that hosts these repositories is either temporarily down or permanently removed. This could get frustrating as it keeps you from installing your favorite addons.
Thankfully, there are some sources that put multiple repositories together at one place so that you may install them when the original source is no longer available. Lazy Kodi is one such repository. This repository brings to you a big library of various repositories including Kodi Bae and Maverick TV.
Lazy Kodi is simply a collection of multiple Kodi repositories. You cannot install any addon directly from this source. However, since it has a big library of repos, you can eventually install almost any addon you like.
AJs isn’t the most popular Kodi repository, but it hosts some good quality addons. As I write this article, it has 7 video addons and 1 program add-on called AJs Wizard.
Let’s talk about the AJs Wizard first. This wizard features a good line up for some fine Kodi builds. The builds are available in 4 categories AJ Builds, Beckys Builds, Pauls Builds and Community Builds. There are nearly 20 builds in total. AJs Wizard also has the Maintenance category that lets you carry out basics tasks such as deleting cache, packages, thumbnails, force closing Kodi and resetting Kodi to the default value.
The Video Add-ons section doesn’t contain the very well known addons, but you may try Cryptic, Eyasses, Champion Sports, Falcon Project and more.
Diamond Wizard Repo
Diamond Wizard Repo has a wide range of addon categories to choose from including Video add-ons, Program add-ons, Music and Picture add-ons, Services, Subtitles and more.
The Video add-ons section contains nearly two dozen addons including TvTap, Live Net TV, A Pirate’s Life for Me, Movie Theater Butter, Golden Age, Vortex and more. Both A Pirate’s Life for Me and Movie Theater Butter are also included in our top Kodi Add-ons list.
In the Program add-ons department, Diamond Build Wizard is probably the most popular addon. This wizard has a sizeable collection of Kodi builds for both 18.1 and 17.6. The eponymous Diamond Dust Build is also the part of our recommended Kodi builds. The Wizard also offers various maintenance, backup/restore, and other utility tools.
With all this, Diamond Dust had to be the part of our top Kodi repositories.
TVAddons.co is one of the oldest Kodi repositories. It offers a decent collection of a variety of addons in various categories. From Video add-ons to Program add-ons to music and subtitles, you will find a lot of options here.
TVAddons got involved in the legal trouble a while ago and was briefly shut down. It came back and has stayed since then. The repository now hosts only the official addons. So, if you are looking for third-party streaming addons, look somewhere else.
It is probably best known for Indigo and Git Browser addons. Indigo is a maintenance and utility addon, which also encompasses the Git Browser. However, Git Browser is also available as a standalone addon. This add-on lets you quickly install addons and repositories hosted by GitHub source.
Source: http://fusion.tvaddons.co (look for repository.xmbchub.zip)
AndroidABA is technically not a Kodi repository but a source from where you can install almost all the Kodi repositories and a wide range of Kodi utility addons. This source contains Bae, Fusion, and many more Kodi repositories. It is a lot like Lazy Kodi but with a bigger collection.
If you can’t install the repositories or certain addons from their original sources, give AndroidABA a shot. There is a fair chance you might find what you are looking for.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons / Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Kodi users are strongly advised to connect a VPN while streaming. A VPN for Kodi will bypass ISP throttling, Government Surveillance, and geo-restriction on popular Add-ons. I always connect ExpressVPN on all my streaming devices and I suggest you do the same.
ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
So, these are the best Kodi repositories for 2020. We continually check this list to make sure it contains only the working repositories. The moment we discover that any repository isn’t functional, we update this article accordingly.
