Attention KODI Users: Read before you continue
Kodi Addons / builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free Movies / TV shows / Sports. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
I use ExpressVPN which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.

How to Use Loki Add-on on Kodi: A Quick Look
Loki addon is simple. However, let me give you a quick overview so that you know what you are dealing with.
You can access Loki addon from the home window of Kodi. You just need to select/hover over Add-ons in the left sidebar and click Loki in the right section under Video add-ons
Or, instead of just selecting Add-ons in the left sidebar, click it and on the next screen select Video add-ons. You will find Loki (and any other installed video add-ons) on the right
Loki has an expansive list of categories on its main screen. Along with regular categories, such as Movies and TV Shows, you will also find several other categories including Documentaries, Kidzone, Music, Karaoke, Fitness, and several sports-related sections.
The addon also lets you authroize Real Debrid and sign in to Trakt from its main screen. You may also click Pair with Sites category to pair with providers like Open Load.
I guess you can get started with streaming now.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here’s how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN app and Sign in using the email ID and password that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription.
Step 9: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your FireStick is now secured with the fastest VPN.
Slow Navigation? Disable Metadata
Loki Kodi addon uses metadata processing, which slows down the navigation significantly. Regular streamers do not need this option. Therefore, it is best to disable it. Here are the steps:
– Open Loki on Kodi and when the main screen loads up, scroll down and click Settings
– On the Settings popup window, select Customization tab on the left. Navigate to the right and toggle Enable Metadata OFF (the image below shows it is ON) by dragging the switch to the left
– Click OK
Few Streams or No Streams? Here is how you fix it
As I write this guide, Loki is fetching lots of quality streams. However, sometimes you may run into some issues. For instance, you may see only few working streams. Or, sometimes you may not find any streams at all. This can be fixed. Follow the steps below:
– Open Settings from the main window of Loki Addon
– Click Scrapers tab in the left sidebar
– Click Open Scraper Settings on the right
– Click General tab on the left
– Click Enable All
Loki addon brings to you a wide range of streaming categories for on-demand content. Besides Movies and Shows, you can stream Documentaries, Kids’ content, sports content and more. Loki addon is doing a fine job as far as the number and quality of streams are concerned. Moreover, there is an inexhaustive collection of content and more keeps getting added regularly. Navigation might seem a bit slow in the beginning, but I have provided the steps to disable Metadata and make it faster. Overall, Loki is a quality Kodi addon and I recommend it. Give it a go!
