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.
How to install FEN addon on Kodi
We will get started with the installation shortly. Before that, you must have the Unknown Sources in the Kodi settings enabled. Once you do that, you will be able to install any addon from a third-party source, including Fen Kodi addon.

You can click the gear or cog icon on the Kodi home screen. You will find it in the top-left corner

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 clearly declared that it is not a fork of Exodus.
To access 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 in 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 own subcategories.
That is how you browse the content in 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.
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, 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 as well as Trakt to provide a solid entertainment experience.Legal Disclaimer - FireStickTricks.com does not verify the legality or security of any add-ons, apps or services mentioned on this site.
