In this tutorial, I will show you how to install and use The Loop addon on Kodi. You can follow the instructions on this guide to get The Loop Kodi addon on all Kodi-compatible platforms, like Amazon FireStick and other Fire TV devices, Android TV Boxes, Android phones, computers, and more. The Loop works on Kodi 18 and 19.
The Loop is a sports-centric Kodi addon located in the Loop Repository. This addon is a sports IPTV option that has been around for quite some time now. It is a decent resource for sports lovers to follow their favorite teams or stars and stream events like major leagues and tournaments.
On The Loop, fans can watch American baseball, basketball, hockey, football, as well as college sports. There are also fight sports events for lovers of combat sports. Soccer fans are not left out. The addon shows live soccer matches from the biggest European domestic leagues and competitions.
The Loop addon does not host any of the content on its servers. Instead, it scrapes videos from host websites on the internet. It does not require a subscription or signup to use. Furthermore, it is completely free for all users. Recently, The Loop addon was updated to work on Kodi 19.
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 Install The Loop Kodi Addon
Now it’s time to get down to business. I will show you how to install The Loop addon on Kodi. I have separated the instructions into three parts, with each part containing a list of steps to follow. Each step comes with screenshots that will help you follow along easily.
Well, 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
To begin with, we will enable app installations from unknown sources in Kodi’s settings menu. This is necessary because The Loop is a third-party addon. Without enabling this setting, we will be unable to add the source of the repository containing the addon.
This is how you can enable unknown sources.
1. Select Settings on your Kodi home screen, represented by the gear icon on the upper-left area of the screen.
2. Click System, located at the bottom-right corner of the page.
3. Hover over Add-ons on the left panel. Navigate to the right panel. If Unknown sources is disabled, click on it to toggle it on.
4. A pop-up warning will inform you that you are granting access to the addon. Click the Yes option to confirm.
The next step is optional and only applies to Kodi 19 Matrix. Kodi 19 comes with a setting that is set by default to update official addons from official repositories. If you change it, Kodi will automatically update all your addons, not just official ones. On Kodi 18, all your addons get updated automatically.
5. Select Update official add-ons from and click Any repositories.
Now you have enabled unknown sources on Kodi. At this point, you can install any third-party addons on Kodi without any issues.
Part 2: Install The Loop Repository
Before you can install a Kodi addon, you must install the repository that hosts the addon. The Loop repository is the source for our Kodi addon, so we must add it. Here’s how to do that.
1. Go back to the home screen of the Kodi app. Click the Settings icon.
2. Select File manager on the next screen.
3. Select Add source on the left-hand panel.
4. In the Add file source window that pops up, select the area that says <None>.
5. With the help of your remote control and the on-screen keyboard, enter the source URL. Type in https://loopaddon.uk/loop19 for Kodi 19 or http://loopaddon.uk/loop for Kodi 18. Make sure that you entered the URL correctly and click OK to confirm.
Note: FireStickTricks.com isn’t affiliated with these files. The links lead to the original source of the repository.
6. You can use the default name loop19 or loop, or you can change it to something you’ll recognize. Click OK twice to confirm the name and then to save the source.
Part 3: Install The Loop Addon
At this point, we have sorted out all the prerequisites. Now we can move on to download and install The Loop addon on Kodi. Follow the steps below to do that.
1. Go back to the home screen of the Kodi app. Select the Settings icon again.
2. Select Add-ons on the next screen.
3. Navigate to Install from zip file and select it.
4. For Kodi 19 users, click Yes on the pop-up warning message.
5. Select loop9, loop, or whatever name you gave the repository.
6. Click repository.loop-3.0.0.zip.
7. Wait for a few moments as the repository downloads. After it installs, a pop-up message will confirm it’s complete.
8. Click Install from repository.
9. Select Loop Repository.
10. Select Video add-ons.
11. Click The Loop.
12. Click Install at the bottom right corner of the screen.
13. A pop-up box will show all the extra addons and dependencies that will install along with The Loop. Click OK to confirm.
14. Wait for a few minutes for the addon to install. You will receive a pop-up notification once it is done.
That’s how you install The Loop addon on Kodi.
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.
