  • Allow access to blocked add-ons & content from other countries.

Elysium add-on

The Elysium add-on for Kodi, which was formerly Zen is one of the most popular ones available. It offers a wide range of content, and is a great alternative for Exodus or Genesis Reborn. This add-on offers all of the same content and features as these other add-ons.

It has downloading, trakt integration, in progress, calendars and channels. It’s a great add-on all round and is one of the best content wise on the Kodi platform. It’s part of the Noobs and Nerds repository.

This guide is for Kodi V17 Krypton, however the steps are relatively similar for Kodi V16 Jarvis. If you have any problems with this add-on, please don’t head to the Kodi forums. Leave a comment below
