In this guide, I will show you how to install The Endzone addon on Kodi. The instructions provided in this tutorial work on all Kodi devices including Amazon Firestick, Fire Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, Computers (Mac, Windows, Linux), Mobiles (Android, iOS, Windows), Android TV (Boxes and Smart TV), Raspberry Pi, and more.
All types of sports are popular worldwide. But in the US, games like rugby, college football, racing, and wrestling take the edge. Simply because Americans have a history with these games.
Americans are crazy about college football, racing, wrestling, basketball, and other similar sports.
However, not all American sports fanatics can afford a premium subscription to enjoy their favorite games live. And if you are among those people, I have got your back!
Today, I’ll introduce you to a famous third-party sports Kodi addon – The Endzone. This addon is specifically made for American sports.
In this piece, I’ll show how you can install the addon, use it, and everything in between. So without further ado, let’s get started.
What Is Endzone
Endzone is one of the most popular sports Kodi addons. This addon lets you watch live streams of various types of sports, including college football, rugby, racing, wrestling, and more.
Endzone is available on the Grindhouse Repository. Previously, it was hosted on the KODIUKTV Repo.
Endzone focuses primarily on American sports. So, you won’t find streams of soccer, hockey, cricket, and other related sports. However, you’ll find all the events of American sports with a number of links.
This addon is completely free. You don’t need to sign-up or generate a login token like other Kodi addons. Endzone gets updated by the developers every single day as it focuses on providing live streams.
Unfortunately, Endzone doesn’t let you catch up with sports highlights, recaps, and more. This addon only lets you watch live games.
Attention, Kodi Users!
Kodi Addons and builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free movies, TV shows, or sports. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
I personally use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.
Is Endzone Safe and Legal
Endzone isn’t available in the official repository of Kodi. And that raises all sorts of red flags in terms of safety and legality.
At FST, we are quite serious about piracy. And that’s why we have made a separate section to highlight these issues.
So, allow me to explain the situation to you one by one.
Is Endzone Safe?
In terms of safety, I personally found nothing fishy with Endzone. This addon doesn’t require any personal information. Also, it doesn’t feature any shady settings in its menu option.
But as I’m not a hardcore security engineer, I can’t verify the true safety status of the Endzone app.
However, I did a quick analysis of the Grindhouse Repository (where Endzone 19 is hosted) on a popular virus checker. And I found it absolutely a-okay. Here’s the proof:
Is Endzone Legal?
Next up, we have the legality matter.
Endzone scraps links from the internet to help you watch live streams of your favorite sporting events.
But as the origin of links is unknown to us, we can’t label them as legal or illegal.
Also, at FST, we don’t have the resources to verify the legality of streams available on The Endzone.
So, there’s that. The Endzone 19 just like other third-party Kodi addons isn’t legal nor illegal – as far as we can tell.
However, I’ll recommend you guys use a reliable VPN service like ExpressVPN when accessing Endzone 19.
Using a VPN makes sense as if you accidentally happen to access something illegal, you’ll remain safe & secure.
In the end, I would like to conclude the section by saying that at FST we are strictly against piracy.
How to Install Endzone on Kodi
Endzone Kodi addon is available on the famous Grindhouse Repository.
To install the Endzone Kodi addon on your FireStick or any other supported device, you’ll need to do some tweaking.
I have divided the section into three parts so you can easily follow the instructions to install Endzone on Kodi.
So without further ado, let’s jump in.
Part 1: Enable Unknown Sources on Kodi
You’ll find the Endzone addon on Grindhouse Repository. But as it’s a third-party repo, you won’t find it by default on Kodi.
And you’ll need to install it first. But before that, you’ll need to allow your Kodi app to load third-party/unknown sources.
Kodi doesn’t allow unknown sources/third-party repos or addons by default. So, you’ll have to turn on the option explicitly.
And here’s how you can do it on your Kodi app:
1. Click the Settings Gear icon located on the top left side of your Kodi home screen – just below the Kodi logo.
2. Select the System tile located on the bottom right side of your screen.
3. Scroll down and select the Add-ons tab from the left hand-side pane.
4. On your right side, scroll down and turn on Unknown Sources.
5. You’ll receive a warning sign from Kodi, click Yes to continue.
6. By default, on Kodi 18 Leia, all repos and addons get updated automatically. But on Kodi 19 Matrix, things aren’t the same.
To allow automatic updates for repos/addons from unknown sources, select -Update official add-ons from option.
7. Update official add-ons from window will appear, click Any repositories.
Note: If you are using Kodi 18 Leia, steps 6 and 7 are irrelevant to you.
Part 2: Install the Repository with Endzone
So, you have opened the gate for third-party sources like Grindhouse Repository. Now, it’s time to load the repo itself.
Without loading the relevant repository, in our case Grindhouse Repository, you won’t be able to access the desired addon.
So, here’s how you can install the famous Grindhouse Repo on your Kodi app:
1. On the Kodi home screen, select the Settings Gear icon located on the top left side of your screen.
2. Select File Manager.
3. On the File Manager’s page, select the Add source option.
Note: Too many sources already added? You’ll find the Add source option at the end of the list.
4. Add file source window will open up. Then select the <None> option.
5. It’s time to enter the official URL of the Grindhouse Repository.
Enter http://grindhousekodi.tk/repo and click on the OK button.
Note: The link I have provided is the official URL owned by the Grindhouse Repository. At FST, we neither own nor host the link. And we aren’t affiliated with the owners of the Grindhouse Repo.
6. Click on the input box below Enter a name for this media source to set a name for the source.
Note: By default, the name will be set to repo.
7. A window will appear, enter grindhouse and click on the OK button.
Note: You can set a custom name, too, but I’d recommend sticking with something simple and related, like grindhouse.
8. Double-check everything and then click on the OK button to save the changes.
9. You’ll see that the source has been added to your File Manager list.
10. Go one screen back and select the Add-ons tile located right next to File Manager.
11. Scroll down and select Install from zip file.
12. A warning sign will appear on your screen, click Yes to continue.
Note: You won’t receive any such message if you are using Kodi 18 Leia.
13. Install from zip file window will appear. Scroll down and select grindhouse or the name you set for the source earlier.
14. Select repository.grindhousekodi-x.x.zip.
Note: x refers to the version number of the Grindhouse Repository. At the time of writing, the version of the repo is 1.7. However, it will change in the future.
15. After a few seconds, you’ll receive a notification on the top right side of your screen – Grindhouse Repository Add-on installed.
Part 3: Install Endzone
We are past all the things to finally install the Endzone addon on Kodi.
Here’s how to install Endzone using the Grindhouse Repository we have loaded in the previous part:
1. Click Install from repository on the same screen.
2. Select the Grindhouse Repository.
3. Scroll down and select Video add-ons.
4. On the next screen, you’ll come across the list of all the video addons available on the Grindhouse Repository.
Select The Endzone 19 by 3ndZ0n3.
5. The dashboard of Endzone 19 will appear on your screen. Click on the Install button located on the bottom right side of your screen.
6. Some additional addons will also ask to install side-by-side with The Endzone 19 addon. Click OK to continue.
7. Wait for The Endzone 19 to download and install on your Kodi app.
8. At the end, you’ll receive a notification on the top right side of your screen – The Endzone 19 Add-on installed.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed the Endzone Kodi addon on your FireStick.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or 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, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of 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. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN app and Sign in using the email ID and password that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription.
Step 9: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your FireStick is now secured with the fastest VPN.
How to Use Endzone Kodi Addon
After installation comes the obvious usage part; here’s how you can use the Endzone 19 Kodi addon.
Start by opening the addon. On your Kodi home screen, scroll down and select the Add-ons tab from the left-hand side menu.
After that, go to Video add-ons and select The Endzone 19.
After that, wait for a few seconds to let the addon launch for the first time on your FireStick.
You’ll come across the following sections on the home screen of the Endzone Kodi addon:
- NBA & NXT Today
- Nascar/Formula One
The first section shows the current date. When I captured the screen, the date was May 10th.
Basketball + Wrestling Section
The first section you’ll find on The Endzone 19 is NBA & NXT Today. Think of the section as a joint venture of basketball and wrestling.
Inside this section, you’ll find the latest streams (if available) for the upcoming events of basketball and wrestling.
But note that sometimes this particular section is inaccessible. However, you can try accessing via a reliable VPN service like ExpressVPN.
Are you a fan of rugby/football? If yes, then, like the majority of fans, you must have gone through a lot of trouble finding links to live games.
But not anymore! Endzone has a special section for all the football/rugby fans out there. You can easily find the best links to all the popular games in the addon.
Go to the NFL section. Inside it, you’ll find the links to all the matches that are currently live. Note that the links get updated 15 to 20 mins before the games. Also, there are live stream links to rugby-related channels like NFL Redzone.
To play a link, simply click on it. Unfortunately, as I’m accessing the section off-season, I’m only able to watch the rugby channel.
Choose a link window will appear on your screen. Next, select one link from the list and wait for it to play your desired content.
Are you unable to play any link? Refresh the addon or turn on your VPN service as your ISP might be blocking the links provided by Endzone.
Lastly, let’s explore the settings of the Endzone addon.
To do that, long-press the icon of Endzone.
After that, a menu will appear. Then, select Settings.
The Endzone 19 Settings menu will appear on your screen. Inside it, you’ll find only two tabs, Home Page and Dev Mode.
Note: If you aren’t familiar with the developer mode of Kodi addons, don’t turn on the dev mode of Endzone 19.
The Endzone is a decent option to watch American Sports on Kodi. It is a hassle-free addon with just two categories to choose from. Each category has its own set of streams.
While you will find plenty of streams, sometimes the video playback is not available. Since the addon only plays live sports, if there is no match going on, you will have nothing to stream. However, during the live airing of the matches, you will find plenty to watch.
