The 6 Best Kodi Covenant Replacements for 2020

Collect and stream your content from one single place

Kodi Covenant was an add-on for Kodi, but it's no longer supported. Serious users are scrambling to find a replacement, and to avoid the risk of piracy and security risks, it’s better to use only well-known and vetted add-ons. Here are some of the best Kodi Covenant alternatives out there.

A lot of content available through scrapers like these add-ons use is pirated content. Be aware of the source of any content you watch and avoid illicit or pirated content when using Kodi. Only use the service to stream your own media or to watch content available in the public domain.

Exodus Redux

Exodus Redux is the best Kod Covenant replacement.
What We Like
  • Exodus Redux’ Kodibae version receives updates every few months.

  • Doesn't host any grey area content due to an ongoing legal battle, so risk of pirated content is minimal.

What We Don't Like
  • The legal battle creates concern for users who worry Kodi straddles the line of legality.

Exodus Redux is a new fork of the original Exodus add-on. The original featured over 50 media sources, special categories and sorting features for content, and even support for non-English streams. However, the original Exodus hasn’t seen an update since 2017. Exodus Redux receives more regular updates while keeping all of the features that users have come to know and love. The best form of Exodus is the Kodibae version, which saw its last update on October 12, 2019.

Movie Theater Butter

Movie Theater Button is an easy-to-use Kodi addon.
What We Like
  • The one-click feature is great for users who want to avoid the nitty-gritty details.

What We Don't Like
  • Movie Theater Butter is a third-party add-on and isn't supported by the official Kodi team. 

The oddly-named Movie Theater Butter add-on is the next best option after Kodi Covenant. It has a one-click feature that makes the add-on exceedingly easy to use. There’s no need to install your own media; just find the movie or TV show you want to watch and select it. The add-on will do the work of finding a working stream. It also has the same categorization features of the original Exodus.

The Crew

The Crew is the go-to choice for streaming live TV.
What We Like
  • The amount of live content and seasonal categories makes it feel like cable.

  • The Crew is one of the best options for live TV.

What We Don't Like
  • There are multiple reports of errors, including the “no stream available” error.

The Crew is another custom add-on for Kodi that works much like Exodus, but in addition to normal categories and playlists, it supports custom-curated playlists as well. A previous update also added holiday content, cricket, and more. It’s one of the best add-ons for live IPTV.

Venom

Venom is one of the most widely compatible addons.
What We Like
  • Venom is lightweight and widely compatible.

  • It provides fast content with minimal buffering.

What We Don't Like
  • Venom is not as widely known or as commonly used as other add-ons, which means less support is available online.

Like many of the other add-ons featured here, Venom is based on a version of Exodus. It’s compatible with any device that supports Kodi, as well as with new and older version of Kodi. Another benefit of using Venom is the lack of unnecessary content that might slow the add-on down. It works particularly well with cached content, but utilizing an extra service like Real-Debrid can help prevent slowdown and buffering.

Magic Dragon

Magic Dragon is the continuation of a long and beloved addon.
What We Like
  • A well-rounded collection of content that makes it appealing to any user.

  • Has a unique, “People Watching” category.

What We Don't Like
  • The Magic Dragon is a third-party add-on and not officially supported by the Kodi team.

Magic Dragon is not a new add-on, but one that has been rebranded and renamed several times. It started life as the Pyramid before its developer quit and gave the files to a new owner. The Magic Dragon add-on has gained an astounding amount of popularity in a short time and has a lot of content for any viewer, including documentaries and kids’ shows.

Midian

Midian is one of the best-organized addons.
What We Like
  • Midian divides categories into multiple sub-categories that make it one of the easiest add-ons to navigate.

What We Don't Like
  • Many users have encountered an error where the add-on requests a password. 

Midian is an all-in-one add-on like Magic Dragon that adds a wide range of content. It’s more notable for the number of quality streams it collects, as well as the powerful navigation features the add-on packs into it. It also has streams of 24/7 live cameras like animal cams in zoos
