In this guide, I will show you how to install FEN addon on Kodi. This addon works on all the devices that support Kodi. This includes FireStick, Fire TV, Android, iOS, Android TV, Windows, Mac, Linux, and more.
FEN Kodi addon serves you a decent line-up of on-demand movies and TV shows. It is a lightweight and fast addon. It is a relatively new addon and comes with a whole new set of powerful scrapers.
The FEN addon supports Trakt and you can pair it easily from the addon settings. It also supports Real Debrid. In fact, I highly recommend using Fen with Real Debrid. It will give you access to tons of premium-quality links. I have provided the steps to set up Real Debrid with Fen later in the guide.
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 to 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.

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 FEN Kodi Addon
Fen is like any other Kodi addon for Movies & TV Shows. It looks quite a bit like the Exodus addon. However, the developers have declared that it is not a fork of Exodus. To access the Fen addon or any other Kodi addon, go to the home screen of Kodi. From there, go to Add-ons > Video add-ons.
You may now click and open the Fen addon.
You may see the following Changelog window when you run the Fen addon for the first time. This window may also appear if the addon has been updated since the last time you opened it Hit the back button to close this prompt.
Here are the various categories on the main screen of the Fen Kodi addon. Movies & TV Shows are the primary categories that will get you started with streaming.
You will find the content organized into subcategories. For example, upon clicking Movies on the main screen, the following subcategories are displayed (such as Trending, Popular, Premieres, etc.) You may click the subcategory of your choice to explore the content. The subcategories are likely to have their subcategories.
That is how you browse the content in the Fen Kodi addon. If you are looking for something specific (say, you have the name of the movie you want to watch), you can use the Search option on the main window of the addon.
How to Set up Real Debrid with FEN Kodi addon
As I told you, Real Debrid offers premium links and they often tend to work better than the free ones. Using Fen with Real Debrid would therefore be a good idea. You will need the Real Debrid Premium account. If you don’t have one, here is our detailed guide on Real Debrid.
To set up Real Debrid with Fen addon, click Tools on the main screen.
Next, click the option REAL-DEBRID: (Re)Authenticate Real-Debrid.
You should now see a dialog box with a code. Go to https://real-debrid.com/device in a computer or mobile browser and enter the code to validate your account. If required, sign in to your Real Debrid account.
Back on Kodi, once your Real Debrid account is validated, you will see the Authorization Successful message.
Go back to the main screen of Fen addon, pick the movie title or episode you want to watch. You will find many new premium links. They are displayed in a different color than the free links.
So, this is how you install and use the Fen addon on Kodi. FEN is a relatively new addon but it is working better than many other older addons. It is an on-demand addon and hence you will only find the options to watch movies and shows. It pairs with Real Debrid and Trakt to provide a solid entertainment experience.
