In this article, I’ll show you how to install the POV Kodi addon. Instructions in this piece are valid for all eligible devices like Nvidia Shield, Amazon Fire TV, Windows PC, Mac PC, Android phones, and more. Note that I’m using FireStick Lite and Kodi 19 Matrix to demonstrate the installation.
What Is POV?
Want to watch free movies and TV shows on your Kodi app? Then, it’s time to install the famous POV addon. POV addon available on the Kodifitzwell repository is your one-stop shop to watch free TV shows and movies. Trending TV shows, popular movies, documentaries, and you name it, POV lets you stream it all.
POV also lets you discover TV shows, movies, people, and more. Furthermore, this add-on enables you to make a collection of your favorite content. Similarly, you can create custom lists.
All-in-all, POV is one of the best Kodi addons to stream free TV shows and movies.
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 POV Safe & Legal?
Before you install and use POV, it’s essential to learn about the safety and legality of the addon.
In terms of safety, POV looks fine. I personally used the addon and found nothing suspicious. But I can’t label POV 100% safe as we at FST aren’t security professionals. As it is a third-party addon, one can’t be entirely sure.
However, I did a quick test of the POV repo zip file and found it to be completely fine; here’s the proof:
On the split side, we don’t have the proper resources to do a litmus legality check of the content on POV. So, I can’t say if POV is legal or illegal.
That said, I recommend you to use a VPN service like ExpressVPN. This way, you’ll stay protected from all the hustle-bustle of safety and legality issues.

How to Install POV Kodi Addon
POV is a third-party Kodi addon available on the Kodifitzwell repository. To install it, you need to follow a series of steps. I have split the section into three parts so you can easily follow along and install the POV addon on your Kodi app. So, let’s get started.
Part 1: Enable Unknown Sources on Kodi
Firstly, I’ll show you how to enable unknown sources on Kodi. Without enabling this option, you won’t be able to load the Kodifitzwell repository. Thus, no access to the POV addon. Here’s how to allow unknown sources on your Kodi app:
1. Select the Settings Cog icon on the Kodi home screen.
2. Choose System.
3. On the left-hand-side panel, scroll down to the Add-ons tab.
4. On the right-hand-side panel, turn on Unknown sources.

6. On Kodi 19 Matrix, third-party addons/repos don’t get automatic updates by default.
To enable automatic updates for third-party repos/addons, select -Update official add-ons from.
7. Select Any repositories.
Note: Steps 6 and 7 only target Kodi 19 Matrix users.
Part 2: Install The Repository With POV
To access the POV Kodi addon, you’ll have to install the repository that hosts it – the Kodifitzwell repository.
Here’s how to install the Kodifitzwell repository on your Kodi app:
1. On your Kodi home screen, click the Settings Gear icon.
2. Open File manager.

4. Add file source window will appear on your screen; click <None>.
5. Enter the URL of the Kodifitzwell repository https://tiny.one/kodifitzwell and click on the OK button.
Note: I have shortened the official URL of Kodifitzwell so you can easily enter it. However, by no means are we affiliated with the Kodifitzwell repository. This URL points to the original source.
6. To set a name for the source, select the input box under Enter a name for this media source.
7. Enter a name and click on the OK button to continue.
Note: I’m sticking with the default name kodifitzwell, as it’s easy to remember.
8. Click OK to save the source.
9. You’ll see that the source has been added to the list.
10. Go back to the Kodi Settings page and select Add-ons.
11. Select the Install from zip file option.
12. A warning message will appear on your screen regarding updates; click Yes to continue.
Note: The warning prompt will only appear on Kodi 19 Matrix.
13. Select the repo name you have set from the list of Install from zip file window – in my case, it’s kodifitzwell.
14. Click repository.kodifitzwell-X.X.X.zip.
Note: X is the version of the repository. Currently, the repo version is 0.0.1, but it may change in the future.

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.
