In this tutorial, you will learn how to install the Scrubs addon on Kodi 18.9 Leia. The images used here have been taken from Kodi on Windows 10. But, the method works on all the Kodi-supported devices as its interface is the same on all the devices. So if you are using Amazon Fire TV Stick, Android TV Box, or Nvidia Shield, you can go ahead and follow the steps.
Scrubs is an on-demand Kodi addon. Meaning, it serves movies and TV shows of your choice. Scrubs is a fairly new addon, but I can see it is making its presence felt. It is a fork of the very popular Exodus addon. Therefore, it bears a lot of similarities with its predecessors, not only in appearance but also in function.
Scrubs features a huge media library affording you thousands of hours of viewing time. You name a movie or TV show and you will find it here. Furthermore, the developers make sure that the library is updated regularly. So, if there is a new movie out there or a recently aired episode, be confident that you will soon find it on Scrubs Kodi addon.
Just like the other such addons, Scrubs doesn’t host any content of its own. It is simply an aggregator. But, it makes sure it gets you the quality working streams for the requested video. I like this addon and want to make sure you know it and get the chance to explore it. So, keep reading!
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.

As I told you, Scrubs is a fork of the Exodus Kodi addon. That’s why its main screen looks a lot like that of Exodus. Take a look at the following image:
The categories and their layout are like that of Exodus. Here are its categories:
- TV Shows
- My Movies
- My TV Shows
- New Movies
- New Episodes
You could get started by picking one of the categories containing video content. For instance, to watch movies, go ahead and open Movies. Click TV Shows to find your favorite shows. If you like Documentaries, there is a special category for it. You will find dozens of documentaries here.
If you want to look up for the content by TV Networks, go ahead and explore the Networks category.
My Movies and My TV Shows categories display the content you have marked as favorite.
If you want to quickly browse the recently released episodes without having to look up for a specific TV show, open New Episodes category.
The main screen of Scrubs Kodi addon also has some utility options. To explore various options in the addon Settings, click the Tools category.
If you are looking for any specific content, say a movie or TV show, you can use the Search option on the bottom of the addon main-screen.
While lots of add-ons come up every now and then and plenty of them vanish without leaving any mark, when I stumbled upon Scrubs Kodi addon, I was certain this isn’t the one that must be lost in oblivion. You will not find this addon very different from many other popular addons. It has an impressive library of videos ranging from movies to TV shows to documentaries. It has also employed top-notch scrapers that make sure you always have working streams for the content you have requested to play. All in all, it is a good add-on to have.
