In this guide, I will show you how to install Covenant on Kodi 18.5 Leia and older versions. The Addon is now available to install from Covenant repo.
Covenant Kodi addon has been updated to the latest version 1.1.33 as of January 2020. This is the first update in several months. Looks like the addon has been revived by the new developers. It is working fine right now.
Also, Covenant is available via two repositories now – Covenant and cy4Root. I have provided both the links in the guide.
Exodus Kodi Addon reigned the world of Kodi add-ons for a great while. The demise of Exodus resulted in the emergence of loads of Exodus Forks. Out of all these forks, the one which stood out was Covenant. It was the true heir and successor of Exodus in many respects which made it the best Exodus alternative. First of all, both Exodus and Covenant had been developed by the same developer Lambda which sort of makes it an official fork. Covenant even sports the same UI as its predecessor.
Not only did Covenant fill up the shoes of Exodus, but it was also better than Exodus in a great many respects. It was far more stable and offered many more features. Lambda had even stopped updating Exodus which made Covenant the best alternative to Exodus.
Exodus was later resurrected and both these addons together worked well for quite some time. They are no longer as popular as they used to be, especially since the many new and better performing on-demand addons spawned. Yet, a lot of Kodi users are still looking for Covenant and Exodus. The good news is that both these addons have only been recently updated and are working great for now.
If you’ve installed Kodi on your FireStick or PC, then I would say Covenant is still a must-try addon.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Covenant on Kodi 18 Leia in some very easy to follow steps. Please note that you can similarly install any other video add-on/ or any other Kodi add-on as well.
How to Install Covenant on Kodi
We will use Covenant repository to install Covenant addon on Kodi. Here are the steps:
Attention KODI Users: Read before you continue
Kodi Addons / builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free Movies / TV shows / Sports. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect 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 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.

Covenant Kodi Addon Not Working
Covenant Addon is not being updated anymore and If you are trying to get it from Colossus repo, it won’t work as this repo has been shut down. However, users can still install and use Covenant from Covenant repo as shown in the guide above. I keep testing and updating this article every few days. If you face any difficulties in installing it with this guide, please feel free to comment below.
Kodi Covenant Addon: No Streams Available
The most common problem faced by Kodi users is – “No Streams Available” for many popular Addons. Covenant is also plagued by these issues, but thankfully, there is a fix. You can get Real Debrid on Kodi which provides tons of additional streaming sources in full HD and your problem of No Streams Available will be gone forever. However, I would strongly recommend getting a Kodi VPN as Real Debrid keeps the log of all the data we access.
