This guide shows how to install Ghost Kodi addon. You can use this guide for any device compatible with Kodi, like an Android phone, Linux PC, Mac, Nvidia Shield, FireStick, and more.
Overview of Ghost Kodi Addon
Available on THE CREW REPOSITORY, Ghost is a video addon that provides you with multiple content options under one hood. Whether you are looking to live stream TV channels, watch sports replays, or a movie, Ghost has everything.
Ghost feature sections like Replays, Movies, TV Shows, Live TV, Trakt, Search, and Settings. Ghost also officially supports the integration of Trakt and premium services like Real Debrid to make your streaming experience truly gold.
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.
Is Ghost Safe & Legal?
Ghost addon is brought to you by one of the most reputable third-party repositories, THE CREW REPO. However, as it’s unavailable on the official Kodi repo, we can’t vouch for it. Also, we don’t possess the right resources to check whether the addon is safe.
That said, I checked the zip file of THE CREW REPO on VirusTotal. And here’s the result:
In terms of legality, the scenario remains the same. We can’t determine whether the content available via Ghost is legit, as it scrapes from multiple sources. So, it’s impossible for us to label the addon as legal or illegal.
And that leaves you with one option, relying on a VPN like ExpressVPN. Using a VPN with Ghost will keep your device data safe, and your internet information, like location, IP address, etc., will stay hidden.
How to Install Ghost Kodi Addon
Ghost isn’t an official addon; that’s why you won’t find it on Kodi’s official add-on repository. Unlike an official addon, installing a third-party addon like Ghost takes several steps. But don’t worry, I’ll guide you through everything.
Let’s get going.

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 Ghost Kodi Addon
I won’t just leave you with the installation of Ghost! Here’s an overview of how to use the addon:
First, open the Add-ons tab located on Kodi’s home screen.
Then, go to the Video add-ons section and open Ghost.
On the Ghost home screen, you’ll come across the following seven sections as shown in the image below.
Let’s start the journey by exploring the first section of the Ghost Kodi addon, Movies.
You’ll find thirteen sub-sections inside Movies like 1Click, Popular Movies, 3-D Movies, Genre, etc. So, if you want to browse movies by genre, open the Genre section. You’ll find movies split into action, horror, comedy, and more.
There’s a separate section for TV series known as TV Shows on the Ghost Kodi addon.
And just like the Movies section, this section features sub-folders like 1Click, On The Air, Genre, Years, Networks, etc. So, open the On The Air tab if you want to see the list of popular shows currently on air.
Who needs cable TV when you can access IPTV via the Ghost Kodi addon? First, open the Live TV section on the addon’s home.
You can access seventeen different IPTV providers, like Daddy Live, Fluxus TV, Music TV, and more. Not to mention, there’s a whole new world of TV channels and networks inside each provider.
Trakt TV lets you track, discover, watch and share TV shows and movies for free! And guess what? It’s officially compatible with the Ghost Kodi addon. Open Trakt from Ghost’s home.
You’ll find seventeen sub-folders inside it like Movie Lists, Tv Lists, Tv Calendar, Progress, Series Watchlist, etc. So, according to what you are looking for, feel free to browse the sub-sections of Trakt.
Are you looking for something specific? Like a show or movie? Use the Search feature available on Ghost to find anything on your mind quickly.
Just enter your search terms, as I entered best, and click OK to fire up the search.
Let Ghost match your search term with its library and create a list of results for you. After some time, you’ll see the search results.
Lastly, we have Settings.
The settings menu of Ghost lets you tweak all sorts of options, including General, Trakt, Filters, Debrid, and more. But beware of changing any Ghost setting if you are new to the whole scene of Kodi third-party addons.
