In this tutorial, you will learn to download and install the Modus Operandi addon on Kodi. Installation process outlined in this guide works on FireStick (and also FireStick 4K and Fire TV Cube), Android TV Boxes (stock OS and TV OS), Mobiles & Tablets, Computers and more.
Modus Operandi is a sports addon for Kodi that brings to you quality sports streams. You may not find other sports streams here, but the handful of available categories have high-quality streaming options. I have noticed that streaming gets even better when this addon is used with a VPN.
The addon lets you stream live events, highlights, and some special videos. Instead of scraping dozens of bad links, Modus Operandi fetches just a bunch of quality links. If you have Real Debrid, it would be a good idea to sign in with it as some streams offer Debrid playback. This could dramatically change the streaming quality.
I believe that Modus Operandi is a good option for those who like to watch sports on Kodi. We have also included it to our list of top Kodi Addons.
Update: Modus Operandi Kodi addon is no longer working. Please try one of the other sports addons from our list of Best Kodi Addons.
How to Install Modus Operandi Addon on Kodi
This installation process is divided into two parts to make things simpler. Here is what we will do:
Part 1: Allow the Unknown Sources in Kodi
Part 2: Installation steps for Modus Operandi Kodi Addon
We get started now.
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.
Part 1: Allow the Unknown Sources
Kodi application is designed to keep your device safe and secure. Therefore, it tries to prevent the installation of any unsafe third-party addons. But, there are several safe addons out there and Modus Operandi is one of them. Therefore, we will bypass this restriction by following the steps below:
1- After launching the Kodi application, click the Settings icon. You will find it in the top-left corner.
2- Now, we access the option System
3- Next, on the left sidebar menu we click Add-ons
4- We now go to the right and switch ON the option Unknown Sources
5- Dismiss this warning message by clicking Yes
As I said, Modus Operandi is safe
After configuring Kodi to accept third-party addons, we move to the next part.
Part 2: Installation Steps for Modus Operandi Kodi Addon
Follow these steps to install the addon:
1- Access the Kodi Settings again
2- Go to the File manager
3- Open the option Add source
4- You should now see the following window. Click <None>
5- We now provide the source URL. Here is what you will type: https://mritzme.github.io
Note: Type the URL exactly as provided
6- We will now name the source we just added. As you can see, I have written MO in the name field. However, you may choose your own name to identify this source with.
7- Press the back button/esc key (depending upon the device you are using) to return to the Settings menu. Or, you may access Settings again from the home screen of Kodi
8- Go to Install from zip file
9- Open the source name MO (or the name that you added)
10- Open the zip file that says repository.itzme-x.x.x.zip
Note: Click the file even if the version number is different from what you see in the image below
11- After about a minute, you should see the message iTzMe Repository Add-on installed
12- Go ahead and click Install from repository
13- Click the iTzMe Repository
14- Go to Video add-ons
15- Click Modus Operandi
16- Click Install
17- Click OK.
This is the list of the addons, dependencies that will be installed with Modus Operandi Kodi addon
18- Wait for about a minute for the Modus Operandi Add-on installed message
This is how you install Modus Operandi 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.
Modus Operandi Kodi addon may not have a big range of sports categories. However, the developers have made sure that they offer high-quality streaming for whatever sports they have. Unlike a lot of other sports addons, most of the streaming links offered by Modus Operandi work. Especially, if you like watching wrestling and combat sports, you will enjoy this addon. Of course, there are other categories as well and they also offer quality streaming. All in all, I believe, Modus Operandi is a decent sports addon to have.
