In this guide, you will learn how to install Redemption Kodi Addon on Kodi 18.3/18.2 Leia and Kodi 17.6 Krypton for PCs / FireStick, Nvidia Shield, and other Kodi boxes.
Redemption addon was shut down a little while ago, but it has been revived now. It is the part of the Cellar Door TV Repo and brings to you a big collection of movies. Unlike before, the addon does not feature the TV Shows section anymore. The addon still seems to be under development. However, most of its options are working. It has options to watch New Releases, 4K Movies, Horror Mix Up, Kids’ content, Fight Replays and more.
Update: Redemption addon is currently unavailable. You may try one of the other addons on our list of best Kodi addons.
How to Install Redemption on Kodi (FireStick / PC)
Before we get started, a small change in the security settings is required to allow Kodi to install third-party add-ons, such as Redemption. Here is what you need to do:
#1. From the Kodi home screen click ‘Settings’ on the top left. It is the cog/gear icon
#2. Open System Settings and select Add-ons on the left panel (if you use Kodi 18, click ‘System’)
#3. Allow ‘Unknown Sources’ by enabling this option
#4. Press ‘Yes’ when the warning message appears
Let me tell you that even though you have tweaked this security setting to allow third-party add-on installation, there is nothing for you to worry about. Redemption video addon for Kodi is trustworthy.
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.
Alright! You are now all set to install Redemption Kodi Addon. Let us get started.
All add-ons are available through some repository and Redemption is no exception. Kodi must first point to the source from where Redemption add-on will be added. So, here is what you need to do:
Step 1: Click Settings icon on the top left (the gear icon)
Step 2: Open ‘File Manager’ option on the next screen. It is the last icon on the list.
Step 3: Click ‘Add source’ on the next screen. You may have to scroll a bit if you have added multiple sources. This option is always on the bottom.
Step 4: Click ‘<None>’ to open the screen where you will type in the URL of the source from where we will get Redemption Kodi addon.
Step 5: This is the screen where you will type in the URL. If you are using Kodi on FireStick or any other such remote assisted streaming device, use the keypad to type in. If you are using Kodi on a computer, use your keyboard.
Type in the source URL: http://cellardoortv.com/repo
Please type the URL exactly as specified. Typo is the biggest reason why many users experience installation issues. Once added the URL, Click OK.
Step 6: Type in cdt in the field ‘Enter a name for this media source’ and click ‘OK’.
You can enter any name you wish to identify this source with later. I recommend using something relevant. This is why I chose this name. You may give it any other name you like.
Step 7: Now go back to the Kodi home screen and click ‘Add-ons’ on the left menu panel
Step 8: Now click the ‘Package Installer’ icon that sits on the top left of the Kodi home screen as shown in the image below.
Step 9: Click ‘Install from zip file’ from the list of the options on the next screen
Step 10: You will see ‘cdt’ (or whichever name you gave it earlier) on the list on the next window. Click it to continue.
Step 11: Now, what you need to do is click the zip file you see on the next window. For Redemption Kodi addon, the file is named as ‘repository.cdrepo-x.x.zip’.
Step 12: When you click this file, the installation will commence.
Step 13: Now on the same window, open “Install from repository”
Step 14: Open “CellarDoorTV Repo” and then click “Video Add-ons”
Step 15: On the next screen, you should see the “Redemption” on the list of Add-ons. Open it.
Step 16: Click “Install”
Step 17: Wait for a few seconds and you will see a notification on the top right – “Redemption Add-on Installed”
This is pretty much it! This is how you install the Redemption Kodi addon!
Return to the home screen and navigate to Add-ons > Video Add-ons. You will find ‘Redemption’ right there.
Go ahead and explore this incredible content provider!

Redemption looks like a decent addon to watch movies. However, it does not feature any categories for TV Shows as I write this guide. You may see the option sometime later though. There are plenty of movies and the addon fetches a lot of streams too. Give it a try.
