In this guide, I will show you how to install Furious Streams addon on Kodi. The images used here have been taken from Kodi app on PC. Since Kodi interface is the same across all the supported platforms, the demonstrated method works the same on FireStick, Fire TV/ Cube, Android TV Box, Android TVs, smartphones, tablets, Roku etc.
I truly enjoy watching live TV over the internet as I often do not have the time to sit before the TV. Furthermore, the subscription charges for traditional cable TV (and the accompanying contract) aren’t very encouraging. I love my options of cord-cutting, especially when there is so much to explore with Kodi.
While there are plenty of live TV addons for Kodi, sadly, all of them aren’t as promising as they appear. It is not just about having a big collection of channels, it is also about making sure the playable streams for the channels are consistently available. That’s where a lot of live TV addons fail to deliver. Fortunately, we still have add-ons like Furious Streams for Kodi that not only have a decent collection of live TV channels but also have more working streams. I will not go as far as saying that Furious Streams is the best, but it is worth exploring.
You will now learn how to install Furious Streams Kodi addon in this step by step guide. Keep reading!
Update: Furious Streams is not working any longer. You may want to take a look at our list of Best Kodi Addons.
Steps to Install Furious Streams Live TV Addon on Kodi
Furious Streams Kodi addon is not the part of the Kodi addon official repository. Third-party addons need you to allow the Unknown Sources before you could install them. Here are the steps to make the changes:
#1. Open Kodi and stay on the home screen. Now, click the Settings icon on the top. It is on the left, under the Kodi logo
#2. Next, click ‘System Settings’ when you see the following options
#3. Now select ‘Add-ons’ on the left. When you do that, you will see the ‘Unknown Sources’ on the right along with a switch. If the switch is in the OFF position, drag it to right to turn it ON
#4. When you turn the switch for Unknown Sources ON, you see the following warning message. That’s okay. Ignore it as there is nothing to worry about the Furious Streams addon for Kodi. However, you may want to turn it OFF once this addon has been installed
Now we can get started with the installation process.
Installation Procedure for Furious Streams
The process I am going to take you through involves several steps. But, don’t worry. Installation method is simple. All you need to make sure is that the steps are followed in the right order. So, here we go:
Step 1: Open Kodi and again click ‘Settings’ on the top-left of the home-screen
Step 2: Click ‘File manager’ when you see the following set of options

Make sure you enter the URL exactly as shown.
Step 6: Now, type in the name of the source in the field ‘Enter a name for this media source’ and click ‘OK’. You may choose any name you want to identify this source with (you will need it later).
I am choosing ‘brettus’
Note: With this step, we have added the source from where we will instruct Kodi to install the Brettus repository. The repository will further be used to install the Furious Streams addon.
Step 7: Now, go back to the home-screen of Kodi and then click ‘Add-ons’ on the left panel
Step 8: Next, click the open box icon on the top-left of the screen (also called ‘Package installer’)

Step 11: Click ‘brettus repo’ when you see the following options
Step 12: Now, click the repository.Brettusrepo-1.0.zip file. Please note that the version number of the file may change later. It is 1.0 at the time of writing this article.
Step 13: Now, simply wait for the Brettus Builds repository Add-on installed notification to slide out from the top right of the screen (see image below)
Note: When you see this notification, it means you have successfully installed the Brettus repository. Now, we will use this repository to install the Furious Streams addon on Kodi.
Step 14: Click ‘Install from repository’ next
Step 15: Scroll down and click ‘Brettus Builds repository’
Step 16: Click Video add-ons
Step 17: Click ‘Furious Streams’ when you see the following list of Kodi addons

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.
Furious Streams for Kodi has an extensive collection of the live TV channels, primarily from the USA and UK. A lot of its channel streams are also available in the HD quality. I love watching live TV online. Therefore, I am constantly looking for good quality live TV channels. Of all the channels I have tried and tested, Furious Streams is among those that stand out. It is surprisingly fast and most of the channels work. This addon offers premium satellite TV over the internet and free. I personally recommend you try it.
