This post provides the complete set of instructions to install the Three Now Kodi addon. The installation process outlined here applies to all the devices compatible with Kodi, including FireStick, Android TV, Fire OS TVs, Android & iOS smart devices, Windows, Mac, and more.
What Is Three Now?
Three Now is a third-party Kodi addon that provides on-demand TV content from New Zealand. This addon features series and episodes from various media sources and networks in New Zealand. This addon does not feature content from any other country. However, this addon could be a decent option for those looking for New Zealand TV.
In addition to TV shows, you can stream aired movies, documentaries, docuseries, and more. You can install Three Now from Sly Guy Repository, an unofficial Kodi repository. We have included this addon to our list of Best Addons for Kodi. Please note that Three Now currently does not support Real Debrid or Trakt.
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 Three Now Safe & Legal?
The Three Now addon is part of an unofficial repository, Sly Guy. Therefore, it is only obvious not to have complete trust in the addon regarding safety and security. We cannot vouch for any third-party addon like Three Now. However, there are some things we can consider to feel more confident while using such addons.
For instance, I have this addon installed on my devices with antivirus. However, none of the devices have raised any flags or detected any malicious activities.
I have also scanned the repository zip file of Sly Guy with Total Virus, an online antivirus tool. It did not find anything alarming about the repository. Therefore, I am assuming that the Three Now addon is safe. Here is the screenshot of the test result:
Regarding the legal status of Three Now, there is no way for us to find out whether it has obtained the required licenses to distribute New Zealand TV via its platform. Therefore, we cannot confirm whether Three Now is legal or not.
I recommend using a secure Kodi VPN with the addon, such as ExpressVPN, to avoid running into legal trouble. ExpressVPN offers iron-clad, Military-Grade encryption and hides all your streaming activities.

Let’s get started.

2. Click System on the next window.
3. Choose Add-ons in the panel on the left. Next, navigate to the right and turn on the switch for Unknown Sources.
4. When prompted, click Yes to proceed.

This is how you configure Kodi to let it install third-party addons.

Note: FireStickTricks.com is not affiliated with the individuals or entities who host this URL and its content. This URL leads to the original source of the repository.
6. You should be back on this window. Highlight the input field Enter a name for this media source. Type a relevant name you can remember. You will need it later. I am picking slyguy. Click OK.
7. Press the back button once and go back to the Settings window. Click Add-ons.

2. Click the SlyGuy Repository.
3. Open Video add-ons.
4. Scroll down a little and click Three Now addon.

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.
