Kodi, which is an immensely popular, opens source, streaming application, is available for almost every platform except Xbox & PS4. But, recently, it has made it’s to Xbox One, which has surely excited many Xbox users as I can see them breakout on internet searching for Kodi Xbox addons. The latest Windows 10 version of KODI, finally managed to make it to the Xbox One. So all the Xbox One users can now leverage the utilities that Kodi has to offer. But, I suppose many Xbox users are not quite aware of add-ons which they should look forward to. So this is a guide, which will specifically help the Xbox One user to pick best Kodi Add Ons.

Instead of mentioning about the addons directly, I would rather discuss the download and installation of Kodi on Xbox One first. Considering not many readers would have installed Kodi on their Xbox One yet, this would prove to be a helpful segment for them. So let us begin this journey.

Best Kodi Xbox One Add Ons [Sorted By Purpose]

Kodi Xbox One Addons For Movies/TV Shows


Covenant is much like the most popular kodi addon, Exodus. However, Covenant has an active development team and hence is much more reliable. Using Covenant, you can stream latest movies & tv shows in HD quality.


Nemesis is known or pulling the best sources to stream quality content. In fact, Nemesis is an all-rounder, because not only movies, but you could even stream live sports using it. Moreover, one could even play music and audio books using Nemesis.

SALTS is a strong competitor to all-time famous Exodus. SALTS can scrape over 50 sources to stream the best content for users. However, there will be little work for you to do as one needs to spend time configuring the addon in order to get the best quality streaming.


Specto, again like Convenant, is a fork of Exodus and is likely to provide a similar experience. Movies, TV shows with latest episodes are easy to stream using it. The broken links get fixed quickly and you’re unlikely to face much downtime.

Kodi Xbox One Addons For Live Sports


Using Sportie addon, users can stream live sports matches, pick links from reddit and then stream them. Even better, users can replay recordings of the recent matches. The best part is you don’t need to spend much time configuring Sportie addon.


In Sportie addon, you need to input the subreddits in order to stream live matches, which is also the case with ProSport. But ProSport is way more user friendly in terms of UI. It also displays a list of live matches going on so that you can select from them.


Sportsdevil, is my favorite addon as I use it a lot personally. It offers live match streams as well as on demand games, which is ingenuous. Most of the matches streamed using SportsDevil are in HD.


Quantum is more like an all rounder as it features movies, tv shows, news, cartoons & other content for kids, documentaries & sports. Hence, Quantum is in fact a perfect choice for users who need everything in a single add on.

Kodi Xbox One Addons For News


NewsOn has a huge source of live news broadcasters. It has a buffer of 48 hours which means that you can watch any news that was aired in last 2 days. There are various new stations which you could stream. Users can even save their favorite news stations and access them quickly when they want.
