They have a huge database where you can easily find all the old and new movies & TV show titles and even IPTV channels.

FEN is a recently released movie and TV show Kodi addon that has managed to gain a lot of popularity among users because it provides you with working streaming links for all the new as well as old shows and movies.
Since the addon is hosted on the Tikipeter repository, it uses its very own movies and TV shows links scraping technique known as Tiki Scrapper. Which apparently is a lot more powerful in fetching links as compared to the scrappers found in other Kodi addons.

The Venom Kodi addon to watch movies on Kodi was recently released to compete with other existing well-known addons like Covenant and Exodus. And now this addon has become really popular among the community who loves to watch latest movies as well as classic movies and TV shows on their Kodi setup.
Venom is a powerful and feature-rich Kodi addon for movies as it allows you to filter out the content and movies or TV show titles based on rating, popularity, or genre. In case you are wondering, this addon uses a Lambda scraper to scan for streaming movie links from a wide range of reputable sources.

Believe it or not, Exodus is one of those add-ons which comes to the mind of everyone who is looking for a way to watch and stream movies and TV shows for free on their Kodi devices. The addon was previously shut down which kind of forced users to switch to other addons and look for alternatives, but it has since been revived from scratch by a new developer.
Exodus has been one of the most reliable and best Kodi addons for movies and TV shows. The content and links are usually updated with new streaming links, but they are not always reliable. But since the addon is still working so, we have included this in our list.

7. Exodus Redux
Exodus Redux is a fork of the popular and original Exodus addon that we have already discussed and detailed above. However, this clone is updated more frequently and with the latest Web scrapers, since a totally different development team is managing it so you will be able to find a wider range of movies, TV shows, documentaries, and cartoons.
Although the name looks identical to an existing addon there is a lot of difference in the user interface and usability. The best feature is the availability of movies and TV shows in various video resolutions and qualities, including some 4K, 1080p, and 720p.

Covenant addon is developed by Lambda. If you have heard about Exodus or have previously used the Exodus addon, then you will find Covenant exactly similar to that addon because it is a successor and an official fork of Exodus that’s why it uses the same user interface and offers identical features.
Similar to Exodus, this addon was abandoned by its developer but recently, it has been revived and it has become better than ever before as you can find original movies, TV shows, films, cartoons, and even documentaries.

Incursion is a popular Kodi addon that lets you stream an endless number of movies, TV shows, documentaries, and a variety of video content. It is a clone of the Covenant addon but it is well-maintained, consistently updated, and developed more frequently with the latest movies and video content.

10. Neptune Rising
Neptune Rising has gained a lot of traction lately due to a little bit of unsteadiness in other popular add-ons like Exodus and Covenant. Moreover, it is a clone of the Covenant addon and receives quick and frequent updates as well as better development to make sure all the latest movies and TV shows are constantly added.
Neptune Rising provides you with dozens of subcategories to choose from, including different languages, genres, and content types. You are going to find lots of content in a variety of formats. You can even filter out movies and TV shows based on their video quality.

How to use Kodi to watch movies for free?
In this section, we will guide you about how you can watch and stream movies for free on Kodi by using an add-on.
Before we install an addon on Kodi, we first need to enable Unknown Sources. Similar to how the installation of third-party apps is disabled on Android, Kodi blocks the installation of add-ons by default. And you need to enable it once only, and then you can install whatever addon you want.
How to enable Unknown Sources on Kodi
Here’s a guide on how to enable Unknown Sources on Kodi:
- On your Android device, launch Kodi.
- Tap on Settings (cog icon).
- Tap on System settings.
- Now, from the sidebar, tap on Add-ons and then tap on the Unknown sources toggle button.
- A warning popup will appear asking if you want to allow the installation of add-ons from unknown sources. Tap on Yes to proceed.
How to install Kodi addon to Watch free Movies and TV shows
Once unknown sources are enabled, we will now install an add-on to watch movies for free on Kodi. The step-by-step guide on how to install the addon on Kodi is as follows:

- Tap on the File Manager option.

- In the provided box, type the name of the repository. For example Incursion and tap on the OK button.
- Once the source URL and source name have been entered successfully, tap on OK to continue.
- You should now see a new link to Incursion in the File manager.
- Now go back to the Kodi home screen and from the sidebar options tap on Add-ons.
- Over the top left corner, you will see an Open Box/Add-on browser icon. Tap on it.
- Tap on the Install from zip file option.
- A popup menu will appear, and tap on Incursion (it’s the same source file that we added earlier in step 8).
- Tap on the repository.
