This tutorial provides detailed instructions to install Tempest addon on Kodi. The installation instructions are applicable to all Kodi devices including your Amazon FireStick, Android TV box, Raspberry Pi, Linux, Windows, Mac, and more.
What is Tempest?
Tempest is a Kodi addon that lets you watch Movies and TV Shows. Looks like it is based on the once very popular Covenant addon. I say that because both share the same layout, categories, and subcategories. However, while Covenant is not supported by its developers any longer, Tempest is regularly updated and maintained. It is now a part of our Best Kodi Addons list too.
You will find a huge collection of video content, both the latest and old. The video library keeps getting bigger with the new releases. Tempest fetches multiple streams for the requested video, and almost all the streams work. You may even see some free 1080p links. However, to exploit the full potential, you will want to use it with Real-Debrid. You can also sync your watchlist and viewing history by pairing your Trakt account.
Tempest is a good addon with a lot to explore. I recommend you give it a try.
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 Tempest Safe & Legal?
The virus scan result of the Tempest repository shows that it does not contain any harmful software. I scanned the file with the online antivirus called Virus Total. Here is the result:
While we can ascertain the safety of the addon to a certain extent, unfortunately, we cannot verify whether the addon is legal or not. The tempest addon may fetch video links from unauthorized sources.
To stay safe, watch license-free content in the public domain. Also, I recommend using ExpressVPN to mask your online activities and maintain your privacy.

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.
Overview of Tempest Kodi Addon
To access Tempest, you will want to go to Add-ons > Video add-ons from the Kodi home-screen. You can click the addon icon within the Video add-ons section.
It doesn’t take any doing to get started with this addon. Tempest looks a lot like Covenant addon in layout, and hence it is safe to assume that it might be a fork.
It includes the regular categories on the main-screen such as Movies, TV Shows, My Movies, My TV Shows, New Movies, New Episodes, Settings, etc.
My Movies and My TV Shows keep a log of your viewing history. For that, you must be signed in to the addon with your Trakt account.
To authenticate your Trakt details, go to Settings > Accounts from the main-screen of Tempest. Make sure the Accounts tab is selected on the addon Settings window that opens next. Click Authorization in the Trakt section and sign in with your Trakt credentials.
Unlike its predecessor Covenant, Tempest is fetching multiple free streams from various sources on the internet. On occasions, I have also noticed 4K streams. However, 4K and 1080p links are not always guaranteed. If you want more such high-resolution streams, you can sign in with your Real-Debrid account. By doing so, you will gain access to several premium streams in up to 4K resolution.
If you like subtitles with your playback, you can get it easily on Tempest. Follow our guide on how to install and use subtitles with Kodi addons.
Tempest is a pretty straightforward addon. You can get started with it now. Feel free to share your thoughts about this addon through the comments section below.
Let’s get to the point first! Tempest is an addon for Movies and TV Shows, and it lets you watch them without any fuss. This simple but highly functional addon has an impressive line-up of content.
