How To Install Covenant Kodi

Install Covenant Kodi

This screenshot tutorial will show you how to install Covenant in Kodi, which is the replacement for the popular Exodus addon.  Exodus is no longer being updated, so it is important that you install Covenant.

The developers from the team that brought us Exodus has now released Covenant which will pick up where the old addon left off.

Upon launching Covenant in Kodi you will find the following categories; Movies, TV Shows, My Movies, My TV Shows, New Movies, New Episodes, Channels, Tools, and Search.

The Movies category within Covenant has some nice filtering options such as Genres, Year, People, Languages, Certificates, People Watching, Most Popular, Most Voted, Box Office, Oscar Winners, In Theaters, New Movies, My Movies, People Search, and Search.

Within the TV Shows section, you will find many of the same as movies in addition to Airing Today, New TV Shows, New Episodes, TV Calendar, and My TV Shows.

When digging into the Movies and Television categories within Covenant, you will find the following Genres; Action, Adventure, Animation, Anime, Biography, Comedy, Crime, Documentary, Drama, Family, Fantasy, History, Horror, Music, Musical, Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction, Sport, Thriller, War, and Western.

Covenant supports Trakt TV integration which makes is a breeze to manage what we have watched or are planning on watching.  You can setup your Trakt TV account within Covenant by clicking Tools and then Accounts.

The popular unrestricted downloader, Real-Debrid also works great within Covenant and provides buffer-free viewing for movies and television shows.

You will find two methods outlined below on how to install Covenant.  I suggest using the first method with Ares Wizard as this option will provide other popular addons to install with a couple of clicks.  Also, using the manual process at the bottom of this page is not working well due to server overload due to popularity of Covenant addon.
