With Exodus, you can access an absolutely massive amount of streaming content on Kodi, completely free of charge. How Does the Exodus Add-on Work? Exodus aggregates streams from around the Internet and makes them all available through the Kodi interface. Those streams can be from anywhere and can contain pretty much anything. However, the streams on Exodus aren't exactly consistent. It's not like you can tune into regularly scheduled programming on Exodus. Some streams can try to be consistent, but they could also disappear overnight. With Exodus, you always need to search for what you want. There's a lot of variety on Exodus, but there's also a lot of junk. Of course, the streams you find on Exodus aren't officially licensed broadcasts. Who Makes Exodus? Exodus was developed by a team calling themselves Cold Fire. They built Exodus and kept it updated until earlier this year. Following Cold Fire's departure from the project, a team of volunteers stepped up and resumed maintenance of the project. Only recently, the new stewards of Exodus released the sixth major version of the add-on. Where Do You Get Exodus? There really isn't an official release channel for Exodus, and you certainly aren't going to find a mainstream project website. The add-on has always been more of an underground thing, and for good reason. Exodus Listed in a Repository. Because of the nature of Exodus, availability tends to shift. As of right now, the best place to get Exodus is the Lazy Kodi Repo. Add it as a source in Kodi, and you'll be able to download and install Exodus. Is Kodi's Exodus Legal? The short answer is no. In most countries, the U.S. included, streams on Exodus violate tons of copyright laws. Exodus itself is in a murkier area. The add-on is a third-party unauthorized Kodi add-on, putting it in a moral grey area; it provides easy access to pirate content, which is the whole point. However, Exodus doesn't actually host any of the content, so, theoretically, downloading Exodus itself is more of a gray area, while using just about any of the content available is definitely not legal. How to Protect Yourself When Using Exodus If you still want to go ahead and try out Exodus for yourself, you're going to need protection. The best protection you can have is a VPN based in a country with strong privacy laws. Always use VPN servers located outside of the U.S. to stream. Before you open or use Exodus, be sure to test your VPN connection for DNS or any other data leaks that could potentially reveal your location or identity.
