Is The Boys Kodi Addon Safe and Legal?
Users sometimes ask these questions about third-party Kodi addons because they’re not verified by Kodi. That means the addons may or may not have the legal licenses to stream the content they offer to their users.
But it can be hard to know the source of an addon’s content, and it’s impossible to know every single licensing agreement between all media companies in the world. FireStickTricks.com doesn’t have enough resources to determine if every video on The Boys is legal for you to watch. You need to do your own due diligence before streaming anything, especially because your government and ISP (internet service provider) may monitor your activities.
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.
How to Install The Boy Kodi Addon
Installing a third-party Kodi addon is a bit of a process. But don’t worry, I’ll walk you through it step by step.
First, we need to change the Kodi setting. Then we’ll add a source, download the repository at that source, and install The Boys from the repository.
Let’s get started.
Part 1: Change a Kodi Setting
1. Launch Kodi.
2. Select Settings (the cog icon) at the top of the left panel.
3. Select System on the bottom right.
4. Select the Add-ons tab. Scroll over to the right portion of the screen and select Unknown sources to turn the toggle on.
Note: Due to privacy and security concerns, the toggle will be disabled by default. After installing the third-party addon, I recommend you disable the option.
5. Click Yes if a warning window pops.
6. The Unknown sources toggle is now enabled.
Part 2: Add a Repository Source
1. Press the back button on your device one time to return to the page with System in the top-left corner. Then select File manager.
2. Select Add source in either column.
3. Click <None>
4. Type http://team-crew.github.io using the virtual keyboard and click OK.
Note: Check for typos. Try replacing http with https if you encounter a problem.
5. Select the box under Enter a name for this media source, then enter the name crew and click OK. Back on the Add file source window, click OK again.
Part 3: Install the Repository
1. Head back to Kodi’s home screen and scroll down to the Add-ons tab on the left side.
2. On the right side, choose Install from zip file, under Categories.
Note: Click Yes to close the pop-up warning. It notifies you that addons installed from zip (excluding the official repository) must be manually updated. Nothing to worry about.
3. Choose Crew.
4. Select repository.thecrew-0.3.4.zip and click OK. It doesn’t matter if the numbers in the file name are different.
5. Wait for a minute until you get a notification saying THE CREW REPO Add-on installed. Stay on this screen for the next step.
Part 4: Install The Boys Kodi Addon
1. On the same screen, select Install from repository.
2. Select THE CREW REPO.
3. Choose Video add-ons.
4. Scroll down to select The Boys
5. Hit Install.
6. Click OK if it asks you to install additional addons.
7. Wait a few seconds until the installation completes. Once it’s done, you will get the message The Boys Add-on installed.
8. Go back to the Kodi home screen and scroll down to the Add-ons tab on the left. The Boys should show up under Video add-ons on the right portion of the screen.
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.
