In this article, I’ll show how to install the Fox Sports Kodi addon.
Instructions in the articles are valid for all Kodi-compatible devices like Amazon FireStick, Nvidia Shield, macOS, Android, PC, Linux, and more. Also, the addon is available for both Kodi 18 Leia and Kodi 19 Matrix.
What Is Fox Sports?
Also referred to as Fox Sports Media, Fox Sports is the sports programming division of the all-time famous Fox Corporation. Founded in 1994, Fox Sports is a one-stop shop for all sporting entertainment.
NFL, MLB, Nascar, WWE, NBA, NHL, the list goes on—Fox Sports is the hub for all sports buzz worldwide. On Fox Sports, you can watch matches, view scores, check on team news, view analysis, and more.
Fox Sports has a separate division for popular sports like the NFL, MLB, and MLS. Users find relevant news, videos, insights, upcoming match previews, and everything in between inside those divisions.
Fox Sports provides apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, Apple TV, Roku TV, Android TV, and more to facilitate its users. With the app, users can enter the information for their TV provider to stream live games on the go.
If you are a true sporting fan, you can’t miss the greatness Fox Sports offers. The hub offers coverage of top sports leagues, fantastic shows, news, and everything a true sports fanatic needs.
All in all, Fox Sports is one of the best sports broadcast divisions in the US.
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.
How to Subscribe to Fox Sports
Fox Sports isn’t a monthly or yearly subscription-based online service, unlike Netflix, Hulu, Sling TV, and other similar services. Instead, Fox Sports is available via a network subscription from your cable TV provider.
With a cable TV subscription for Fox Sports, you get instant access to the service’s apps and addons. Other than that, you can’t create a stand-alone account and purchase a subscription to Fox Sports.
Once you have bought a subscription to Fox Sports from your cable TV provider, ask about the login details for the app. Then, use the information to log in and enjoy sporting action on the go.
Is Fox Sports Kodi Addon Safe & Legal?
Before we dive in and learn how to install the Fox Sports addon on Kodi, allow me to shed some light on the safety and legality of the addon. Here’s a quick intro to the SlyGuy Repository.
The SlyGuy Repository, the repository hosting the Fox Sports addon, is one of the most reputable repositories in the community. Also, it only hosts addons for services that are legal and official.
Is Fox Sports Kodi Addon Safe?
I didn’t find anything fishy when using the Fox Sports addon. The interface is straightforward and contains nothing questionable. In addition, the addon didn’t ask me to provide access to my files and folders. I also ran a virus test on the repository and found it safe. Here’s the proof:
However, as I’m not a certified Kodi addon developer, I can’t guarantee the addon is entirely safe. Therefore, I recommend using a VPN service like ExpressVPN to keep your data safe and sound.
Is Fox Sports Kodi Addon Legal?
Fox Sports addon only works if you enter valid account details for your Fox Sports cable TV subscription. So, the addon provides a legal gateway to access the Fox Sports service via the Kodi app.
However, the answer remains unknown as Fox Sports isn’t available on the official repository of Kodi (unlike the old Fox Sports Go addon). We can’t label Fox Sports legal or illegal, as we at FireStickTricks.com don’t have the proper resources to determine its legality.
So, long story short, the status of the Fox Sports addon’s safety and legality can’t be completely confirmed. I recommend using a trusted VPN service like ExpressVPN whenever you are using the addon.
How to Install Fox Sports on Kodi
Finally, it’s time to install the Fox Sports addon on Kodi.
I have divided the section into three parts so you can easily follow along and install Fox Sports on your Kodi app.
Follow the parts and their respective steps to avoid any issues. So, without further ado, let’s get started.
Legal Disclaimer: This tutorial is purely educational. FireStickTricks.com doesn’t own, host, operate, resell, or distribute any streaming apps, addons, IPTV or services. The page contains some unverified services, and we are not certain whether they hold legal licenses to distribute the content. FireStickTricks.com does not verify the legality of each app/service in all regions. Do your due diligence if you use any of the unverified apps/services, and stream only content that is available in the public domain. The end-user shall be solely responsible for the media accessed.
Part 1: Enable Unknown Sources on Kodi
In this part, we’ll first enable unknown sources on Kodi.
Although the SlyGuy Repository is a hub only for official addons and should be safe, it’s still a third-party repo for Kodi. For the safety and privacy of users, by default, Kodi doesn’t allow the installation of any third-party repository or addon.
That’s why we’ll have to enable unknown sources on Kodi so that we can load the SlyGuy Repository on the Kodi app. Here’s how it breaks down:
1. On Kodi’s home screen, select the Settings Gear icon on your screen’s top left side, just below the Kodi logo.
2. Next, click on the System tile on your screen’s bottom right side.
3. On the System page, scroll down to the Add-ons tab in the left-hand menu.
4. Next, turn on Unknown Sources in the right panel.
5. A warning message will appear on your screen. Read it and click on the Yes button to continue.
Note: Steps 6 and 7 below are only meant for users on Kodi 19 Matrix. You won’t find the option in Kodi 18 Leia, as it treats all repos/addons equally regarding automatic updates.
6. Now, if you want to automatically update third-party addons/repos like official ones, select Update official add-ons.
7. On the window that appears, select Any repositories.
Part 2: Install the Repository with Fox Sports
In this part, we’ll load the SlyGuy Repository on Kodi so we can install the Fox Sports addon.
The SlyGuy Repository is one of the most popular third-party repositories in the game, with an excellent reputation. However, this repository only features the addons of official services like Fox Sports, Netflix, Adult Swim, and more.
Although the developers of the SlyGuy Repository aren’t associated with official Kodi addons, they provide addons for legal and trusted services.
So, here’s how you can load the SlyGuy Repository on your Kodi app:
1. On the home screen of Kodi, click on the Settings Gear icon located on the top left side of your screen, just below the Kodi logo.
2. On the next screen, click on the File manager tile at the top left.
3. Next, select Add source.
Note that if you have added repositories in the past, you’ll find the Add source option at the end of the list.
4. A window will appear. Click on the <None> label.
5. An input window with a keyboard will appear on your screen. Enter https://k.slyguy.xyz and click on the OK button.
Note: We at FireStickTricks.com don’t host or own the Sly Guy Repository, nor are we affiliated with it. I have just provided the official link to the repository so you can add it to your Kodi app.
6. Next, you’ll have to pick the name of the source. To do that, click on the input box under Enter a name for this media source.
7. Enter slyguy in the input box and click on the OK button.
8. Double-check everything and click the OK button to save the source.
9. You’ll see that Kodi has successfully added the SlyGuy Repository source to your file manager list.
10. Go one step back using your device’s back button, and you’ll land on the settings page. Next, click on the Add-ons tile located alongside File Manager.
11. Scroll down and select Install from zip file.
12. On Kodi 19, you’ll receive a warning from Kodi. Go through it and click on the Yes button to continue.
13. Next, the Install from zip file window will appear. Scroll down and select slyguy.
14. After that, click on the repository.slyguy.zip file to download and install the SlyGuy Repository.
15. Wait for a few seconds, and you’ll receive a notification on the top right side of your screen stating SlyGuy Repository Add-on installed. Stay on this screen.
Part 3: Install Fox Sports
Enabled unknown sources, check. Loaded the SlyGuy Repository, check.
So, as we now have everything in place, it’s time to install the Fox Sports Kodi addon.
1. On the same screen, scroll up and select Install from repository.
2. Next, scroll down and select SlyGuy Repository.
3. You’ll see a list of categories in the SlyGuy Repository. Scroll down and select Video add-ons.
4. Now, you’ll see tons of video addons in an alphabetical list. Scroll down to the F section and select FOX Sports.
5. The Fox Sports dashboard will appear. Click on the Install button on your screen’s bottom right side.
6. The Fox Sports addon will need to install other addons, as some of its services depend on it. So, click on the OK button to confirm the process.
7. Wait for the download and installation to complete.
8. Once done, you’ll receive a notification in the top right corner of your screen stating FOX Sports Add-on installed.
Congratulations! You have installed the Fox Sports addon on your Kodi app.
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.

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.

Fixing Kodi Fox Sports Not Installing, Not Working, & Other Issues
Are you facing any problems with the Fox Sports Kodi addon? Don’t worry; I’ve got your back!
Here are the fixes for some common issues you might face while installing or using the SlyGuy Fox Sports Kodi addon.
Failure to install the Fox Sports addon can happen for numerous reasons.
First, check if your internet connection is working correctly and your device is connected. Then, exit the Kodi app, restart your device, and launch Kodi. After that, try installing the addon.
Chances are, you’ll be able to install the Fox Sports addon.
Check Log Error
Is the Fox Sports addon notifying you to check your log while installing or launching? Don’t worry.
Exit the app, force stop it and then clear its cache. However, don’t clear the data, as it will reset your Kodi app to factory settings.
Or, you can try reinstalling the addon or checking for updates.
There are several reasons you can encounter the dependency issue error.
First, force quit the Kodi app and re-launch it. Then, try clearing the cache and updating the repository if it doesn’t work.
Still can’t fix the issue? You can clear the data for your Kodi app. However, it will result in deleting all your repos, addons, files, and other data.
Before you clear the data, I would install a fresh copy of Kodi on another device to see if the addon is working. If it’s working, clearing the data or reinstalling Kodi on your other device should get the addon working.
Unable to Log In
Some users have reported that they cannot log into the Fox Sports addon. If you are among those people, try using a VPN service like ExpressVPN to connect to a US-based server.
Is Fox Sports an official addon?
It’s complicated. The addon for Fox Sports itself is linked to the legal service Fox Sports offers and requires a subscription. However, as it isn’t available on the official repository of Kodi, we can’t label it as official.
Although the Fox Sports addon runs like a champ after entering your subscription details, it isn’t the official creation of Kodi or Fox Sports.
Why isn’t Fox Sports Go addon working?
Fox Sports Go by the Fox Corporation is now known as Fox Sports. Unfortunately, since the change, the official addon for Fox Sports Go hasn’t been updated to Fox Sports by the Kodi team. So although it’s available on the list and installable, you can’t run it as it gives an error.
So, the Fox Sports Go addon is outdated and doesn’t work anymore. The one that works is available from the SlyGuy Repository as Fox Sports.
What are the requirements to use Fox Sports on Kodi?
Fox Sports addon on SlyGuy Repository is based on the official service provided by Fox Corporation. You’ll need valid subscription details from your cable TV provider to use it.
Without logging in, the Fox Sports addon isn’t useable. Although you can download and install it, you won’t get past the home screen without entering your details for a valid cable account that includes Fox Sports.
Should I use a VPN with Fox Sports addon?
As Fox Sports isn’t an official addon of Kodi, I recommend using a trusted VPN service like ExpressVPN.
With a VPN, your data and activity remain super safe. Everything important stays encrypted, like your IP address and activity log.
Although users haven’t reported anything suspicious about the addon, it’s better to stay one step ahead.
In this piece, I showed you how to install the Fox Sports Kodi addon from the SlyGuy Repository. This guide covered everything from installation to dealing with issues, using the addon to FAQs.
