PwrDown highly recommends you use a VPN when using Kodi. IPVanish is one of the only top tier VPNs and it’s tailored specifically for Kodi users. It works on almost all devices including the Amazon Fire Stick. As stated on their site, using IPVanish will:
  • Mask your IP Address & Hide your streaming habits.
  • Prevent your ISP from spying on you.

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

Genesis Reborn Overview

Genesis was once the most popular add-on for streaming inside of Kodi. This new add-on, Genesis Reborn, aims to take the spot back with a lot of great content and features implemented. At the moment, it’s not possible to install the Exodus add-on, so this is a great alternative.

Genesis Reborn has a much nicer appearance compared to Exodus, with all new icons, categories and designs. Even the source selection page looks better with the use of movie stills. You are able to play trailers from the category page too, using the context menu. It also has an “On TV” section, where you can choose a date and bring up all of the shows that played that day.

Below are some quick installation instructions for Genesis Reborn. However if a step confuses you, there are screenshots provided further down. If you require any assistance, leave a comment below and we’ll get back to you.
