Moving its own, Kodi is empty – it is just a media player, after all. That is why you want add-ons to watch movies, podcasts, listen to music, or do anything else. Because you will see below, you can also play video files on Kodi straight from your device.
Being mentioned in the introduction, Kodi has no shortage of add-ons. You can see through all the add-ons that are currently in the official Kodi repository on their site. Search them by keyword, category, or author.
In case you don’t know where to start or what to select, here is a list of popular Kodi add-ons in no appropriate order.

Watch Movies by Uploading them from the PC.

The Most Famous Kodi Add-ons for Movies
This can be challenging to navigate the sea of seemingly endless choices. So, here are some of the most common add-ons for Kodi in no particular order.
As long as movies go, those add-ons get the most downloads (according to the official Kodi website).
BBC iPlayer allows a variety of the high-quality UK and non-UK movies and TV shows. Several limitations to BBC iPlayer is their limited content, which is also geographically locked. Outside the United Kingdom, you cannot locate the material on BBC iPlayer. Here is where Fortech comes in handy, allowing you to watch movies on Kodi’s BBC iPlayer from any place in the globe.
Tubi TV boasts over 50,000 various movies and TV titles of different genres. Though, on the downside, Tubi TV has any of its content geographically locked (e.g., currently, it is not available in Europe). To unlock the full Tubi TV library, you will need the services of a VPN.
The Classic Cinema is a gold mine for classic cinema fans. The add-on offers a wide selection of movie billboards, TV shows, and silent films. It is free-to-use for all Kodi users.
Another Crackle is Sony’s free online video library. Sony licenses everything the content on the platform. Given that Sony is a movie powerhouse, you can demand high-quality content in this space.
SnagFilms has over 6,000 movies and TV shows making across different genres. This platform first gets complete movie and TV licenses and offers large numbers of this content online.
This PopcornFlix is a free-to-use movie streaming service with a huge collection of TV shows and movies. The streaming service can be downloaded and also installed for free on Kodi.
It is to say that third-party add-ons are trendy among Kodi users. This limitless entertainment that many third-party add-ons offer begins with its dangers. Do sure always to use a VPN when streaming movies on these types of add-ons.
However, what is unofficial or third-party add-ons? They are the things that aren’t in the official Kodi repository (like the add-ons I listed above). Meaning that to make any third-party add-ons, you will need to set up a different repository on Kodi.
Netflix wants no introduction. You can combine this popular streaming service with Kodi, and enjoy everything it has to allow.
That one’s by far the most popular third-party add-on for Kodi. Users’ service is not in vain, as Exodus doesn’t have performance problems and offers an extensive selection of movies. In case you are planning to jump on the Exodus hype train, don’t forget to install a VPN to keep your streaming private.
This add-on is comparable to Exodus Redux. You can watch movies in HD.
Covenant is another add-on that comes in the same category as Exodus.
Another famous name on the list is Nemesis. The add-on can run any media content.
I have included all you should know about watching movies on Kodi. Therefore, let’s summarize:
- Kodi, inside itself, has no movies.
- Kodi has tons of add-ons that will satisfy your movie-buff heart.
- These add-ons could be divided into official and unofficial (third-party) Kodi add-ons.
- It is best to use Kodi with a VPN.
- A VPN enables you to stream privately, access geo-blocked media, and also avoid throttling.
With a quantity and variety of add-ons that offers, there is no doubt that you can watch any movie you need using this media player and a reliable VPN by its side.
