5 Best Kodi Repositories For 2019 & How to Download Them

Published: July 16, 2019

Finding the best Kodi repository that still works in 2019 and offers useful add-ons is tricky and requires a lot of research. So save yourself the hassle and scroll down to our cherry picked list of the best repositories for the latest Kodi 18.3 Leia version and how to download them.

What are Kodi Repositories?

Kodi doesn’t host any of its own content and allows you to stream content from external sources. To do so, you need Kodi add-ons and that’s where repositories come into play. Kodi repos are basically storehouses for add-ons and builds. These repositories are used to download and install any official and unofficial add-ons to enhance your Kodi streaming experience. Simply put, Kodi repos are quite similar to the idea of play store or app store in Android or iOS. Kodi comes with an official repository but there are also some equally good or even better options available via third-party sources.

Best Kodi Repositories in 2019

Now that we have established a basic understanding of Kodi repositories, let’s begin with the exclusive list of the best Kodi Add-ons to try in 2019.

Kodil Repository

Previously known as ‘Kodil Israel’, Kodil repo is one of the most popular streaming repositories till date, especially among users in the US, UK, and Canada. Kodil is one of the oldest repositories but it was shut down in 2018 for a few weeks and then relaunched. Lucky for you, Kodil is still rocking add-ons from different genres such as movies, TV shows, news, sports etc. even in 2019. As of today, Kodil hosts a whopping 700+ add-ons to enhance your streaming experience including some of the most popular ones like:

  • Fox Sports
  • StreamHub
  • Peaky Blinders
  • Exodus
  • Placenta
  • DeathStar
  • Yify Movies HD, and more

Besides hundreds of video add-ons, Kodil also offers nifty add-ons from different areas like subtitles, music, pictures, among others.

Kodi Bae

Despite being a relatively newer addition to the Kodi repo family, Kodi Bae has gained massive popularity among users. Kodi Bae gained immense hype after resurrecting the famous Exodus add-on which went offline a while ago. The add-on library isn’t as extensive as Kodil repo but Kodi Bae rather focuses on quality over quantity and hosts some of the most highly-demanded add-ons like:

  • Exodus
  • Covenant
  • Indigo
  • Serene
  • cCloud
  • Ultimate IPTV among others

Kodi Nerds

Boasting 100+ add-ons in its library, Kodi nerds is a holy grail for any type of video content Kodi users may be interested in watching. All add-ons available in Kodi Nerds are legal, some which aren’t even available in the official Kodi repo. Since it is owned by a German community, most of the add-ons are limited to access in the German region only. However, users may use a Kodi VPN to get past these regional limitations and access Kodi Bae repo from anywhere in the world. Some popular add-ons that are hosted by Kodi Nerds and worth mentioning here are:

  • DAZN
  • NASA
  • SkyGo
  • Xbox live
  • VEVO TV
  • Youtube Music etc.

Lazy Kodi

Kodi is super-fun but it may also get a little exhausting. Having multiple repositories for adding different sets of add-ons is a hassle itself and sometimes, you may also find that your favorite repo has been taken down due to unknown reasons. That’s exactly where Lazy Kodi repo comes into play. It serves as a source that hosts a wide variety of repositories available to install, even if the source isn’t available anymore. Since Lazy Kodi doesn’t own any add-ons and hosts external files instead, the chances of the repo getting shut down are relatively thin. Some of the most popular repositories that Lazy Kodi hosts are:

  • Maverick TV
  • Kodi Bae
  • Supremacy Repo
  • TVAddons Repo
  • Illuminati Repo

One Nation

One Nation is a lesser-known Kodi repository but it is one of the most valuable ones indeed. It hosts a decent line up of Kodi builds like Nebula, DoomzDay, Cobalt, etc. All you need to do is install the One Nation Portal wizards from the One Nation Repository to access these builds.

One Nation doesn’t suffice well on the add-on front it hosts Deceit, which is by far one of the best multipurpose add-ons in the Kodi community. Deceit boats a huge catalog of movies, TV shows, sports streams, live TV and more. Some popular add-ons worth trying on One Nation are:

  • Deceit
  • YouTube
  • Cartoon Network
  • Adult Swim and more
