How to Install Covenant on Kodi with Kodil Repository – Video Tutorial Included

Setup covenant on kodi with kodil repo

Update: The best Colossal Repo is down as the developers behind it have stopped the development of urlresolver and metahandler. Due to which Covenant may face issues with streaming. We have created a round up of Covenant Alternatives as the Covenant Addon for Kodi is temporarily shut down.

Exodus, being a popular add-on for Kodi is now being replaced by a better add-on Covenant. This new add-on is from the same team of developers that created Exodus, and now that the Exodus gets far too many complaints by Kodi users, the developer team decided to create Covenant. It is important that Kodi users must install Covenant on Kodi to stay updated.

Warning!! Before installing Covenant on Kodi, it is recommended that you should use a VPN to remain anonymous while using Covenant as it will safeguard your privacy. Get a VPN and enjoy unlimited content on Covenant.unblock kodi addons

Covenant Kodi Not Working/Errors/Fixes


Covenant Kodi Failed to Install Dependency

Covenant add-on is available on many repositories, but there are only few where it actually works. There are repositories where you install Covenant add-on but it gives an error ‘Failed to Install Dependency’. As a result, you are unable to install Covenant on Kodi. Some of the add-ons contain Trojan viruses and you may accidentally install them through these repositories which is a bigger risk.



To fix this problem, you can install Covenant from the official Colossus repository which is safer than any other repositories. The installation process that has been discussed in this blog follows Colossus repository.


Covenant Kodi No Streams Available

Recently an error has been popping up on Kodi while using Covenant stating, ‘No streams Available’. This means that either the stream you’re looking for is new and not yet available or either it is too old to grab.

As for the add-on, Covenant might not be able to catch any stream from the provider. The reason may be because of your network connectivity, firewall or your cache.



Well, this error can easily be fixed. Follow the following steps to fix this error:

  1. Go to the Main Menu> Open Tools.
  2. Click on Clear Providers> Click yes> A notification stating ‘Process complete’ will pop-up.
  3. Now click on Clear Cache> Click yes > A notification stating ‘Process complete’ will pop-up.
  4. Click on General > Go to Providers Timeout> Decrease it to 20> Click OK.
  5. Again click on General> Click on Playback from the left hand menu> Turn off Hosters with Captchas> Click OK.
  6. Now select Subtitles from the Tools menu> Enable Subtitles> Click OK.
  7. If you have an unstable or slow internet connection then,

Go to Tools Menu> Select General> Click on Playback from the left hand menu> Go to Max quality> Decrease the video quality for better streaming experience.

Now you can stream your favorite content easily, Enjoy!


Covenant Kodi Update

Are you a covenant user on Kodi and wondering whether your Covenant Kodi add-on is updated or not?

Well, let us first tell you something about the updating procedure of Kodi add-ons. Firstly, add-ons and kodi repositories aren’t always updated automatically. You can have it updated both manually and automatically.


Covenant Kodi Auto-Updates

  1. Go to Add-ons section.
  2. Click Video Add-ons.
  3. Right click on Covenant icon> Click Information> Here you’ll see a menu at the bottom row.
  4. Enable Auto Updates.
  5. Now it will automatically update Covenant. Either when we launch the Kodi app or while our Kodi app is running and is left idle.
  6. One thing to remember is that it’ll update automatically, only if you have installed Covenant Kodi add-on repository as well. Otherwise having a zip file won’t help.
  7. In case you are being impatient, you can search for Covenant Kodi add-on updates manually from add-ons menu.


Covenant Kodi Manual Updates

  1. Go to Add-ons section.
  2. Click Video Add-ons.
  3. Right click on Covenant icon> Click Information> Here you’ll see a menu at the bottom row.
  4. Click on the Update option, it’ll manually update the add-on.

Here, take a look at this tweet,

It’s visible that the users are more prone towards having updated add-on rather than updated Kodi.


Covenant Kodi Reviews

Kodi is a place of wonders due to the endless possibilities it offers through its add-ons. One of the best add-on for movie streaming was Exodus, which is now out of limelight because its support is no longer available.

But it was soon replaced by Covenant, an add-on that offers everything. There are many Covenant Kodi reviews and in all of them it has been highly praised.


It’s obvious that a third-party add-on cannot be inch perfect and users have been complaining about it. But even in this issue raised, this user is clearly not leaving this add-on.

The issue he has raised regarding the episodes not being correct is a usual thing with such un-official add-ons. Because they aren’t official and the streams that they provide are grabbed from other portals. So this happens sometimes.

On the other hand, there are some users who aren’t satisfied by this add-on. As this user tweeted that he has an issue finding anything to play. Well, we don’t know what the real problem with his add-on might be.

But recently, many users have highlighted an error of having “no streams available” and the reason behind this error might be their ISP, network or their firewall. However, the fix for this error is available and we already have discussed it above in the errors or read our kodi vpn guide.

You can save your favorite content easily by linking your Trakt account to this add-on. It’s very easy and handy too.


Covenant Kodi Reddit User Reviews

If you go through the reviews about Covenant Kodi reddit users have published, then you’ll see that many of them are calling it a “Fork of the Exodus”. Take a look at these threads:

There are some users who are unaware of the fact that having the zip file only doesn’t provide you the streams. You should install proper repository in order to have streams and updates.

If you look at Covenant Kodi reddit reviews, then you’ll see one prominent repository being quoted every now and then namely “Colossus”.


Covenant Kodi Alternatives

Covenant has created frenzy among the users and it is irreplaceable in terms of its content and availability of streams after Exodus. However few more Addons have found their way up the trail to match Covenant.

Covenant vs Exodus

Covenant Kodi add-on is the official replacement for Exodus which has been the face of free movies and TV shows streaming since many years. Exodus fans are more likely to switch to the newer version of Exodus i.e. Covenant because of the instability of the Exodus and its many broken links that have caused fury amongst its fans. In this installation guide, we provide detailed steps on how to install Covenant on Kodi that will allow you to watch free movies and TV shows.


To Wrap Things Up

Wrapping the whole thing up, let us keep it brief. This add-on is a thing of beauty. You will find a lot of Covenant Kodi reviews, and all of them will be praising it.  Covenant allows Trakt account integration with best quality streams. It is undoubtedly the add-on for movies and shows. If you have any other queries related to Covenant or Kodi then comment with your concerns below.

  2. wilby says:

    Hi Wilby how can you take off old zip files that don’t go through

  3. Nick Michaelson says:

    Hello Wilby, to remove the old zip files, you need to Open Kodi > Settings icon > File Manager > Here you will see a list of repositories, old and new ones. Right Click on the repo that you need to remove and click on Remove source. It will remove the source.

  4. Joe Batoha says:

    When I try to add source to install colossus it says it could’nt retrieve directory information. This could be due to the network not being connected. Would you like to add it anyway? Nothing happens. Any suggestions?

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Joe, the error message for ‘Couldn’t receive directory information’ occurs because there is something wrong with repo link. Are you sure you are correctly inserting the link? Sometimes Kodi users do not insert (/) SLASH key at the end of the link or source which is why this error occurs. Try again and let us know.

    • Anna says:

      Followed video to install Covenant from Colussus Repo but when adding source name, I am getting the following message : “Could not retrieve information. This could be due to the network not being connected.” My internet is on and working. I have entered the correctPlease help.


      • Nick Michaelson says:

        Hello Anna the error which you are receiving i.e. Couldn’t retrieve information is because the repository link is not inserted correctly. Paste it exactly as this:
        But make sure you do not add any space before or after the link. Do remember to put a slash key (/) at the end of the link just as I did in the above link.

  5. James says:

    I’m having the same issue and have done everything correctly. The link appears to be bad. Do you know where I can find a correct one?

      • Ace says:

        I’m also trying to download movies from Covenant. In Exodus when we long press on movie link, it shows the option to download the same. But when we long press, nothing happens.

    • Arthur Lowe says:

      I have same issue – your guide works great, but when I enable the download option in the app settings, I don’t get the option to download an individual file rather than streaming it when I right click over the file.

  7. Jenny says:

    Just downloaded covenant but there are only 2 films showing under 2017 and only a few in 2016. Is this correct?
    Thanks Jenny

    • Nick Michaelson says:

  8. Del says:

    I have tried every exodus add on tonight that the can find, but none of them work? Very ? It either puts all the add ons in but will not let me run them, or in the case of this one, covenant fails to appear in the list

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Del, may I ask from which repository are you trying to install Covenant? You can find the Covenant add-on from Colossus Repo. Watch the video tutorial to download Covenant. We have gone through the entire installation steps and it was working fine. Let me know your status.

  9. Alec says:

    Hi Nick, having an issue with the new link as well. The first link simply does not work after being entered correctly multiple times. The second one isn’t for Colossus/Covenant it’s for Mobdro. I decided to download it anyways and in Mobdro it fails to stream any videos. Do you have a third link meant for Covenant? Thanks

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Alec, which link are you trying to insert it in Add Source? Because I have only provided ‘one’ link in this blog. Please paste your link here if you can and we’ll help you.

  10. Laughing says:

    If the link isn’t working to the repo it’s because of the shitty tinyurl link doesn’t work all the time….why not just add the original links so people can download directly

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello, yes you are right you can also paste this link to the Add Source on Kodi. The link that we provided also works perfectly. It would re-direct to the same link.

    Hello Nick you did great job with your tutorial. I was just curious if I should uninstall all the exodus and elysium before I try the covenant download.

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Thanks Bobby. Its up to you if you want to uninstall the two addons. But most probably Exodus will shut down, and Elysium is causing problems for Kodi users. So its better to uninstall both add-ons.

  28. Bobby says:

    I was able to get covenant working but the hd movies won’t play…any ideas?

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      hmm…That means you probably have to wait until Covenant finds an HD quality video. Are you having this problem with all of the movies or just the recent ones that were released in 2017?

  32. DaveO says:

    I figured out another way to do this since there are no instructions how to download the file to your Kodi box. I have an app called Downloader on mine. I used this to go to the Kodivpn website where it says to “click here”. I clicked on that link and downloaded the file. Now go to your file manager again and add source, but this time browse. Now go to Root filesystem choose sdcard/downloader. Hopefully you only have that one file in your downloader app. Now click ok and name it colossus. Now go back to the normal steps as before and install from zip file and I think should work.

    Hi I am having issues when I try and watch anything. It comes up saying no streaming available. Please help

    When I go to install from zip file I have no idea what to pick but my xxipnfiles look nothing like that you have

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hey Danielle, one you have downloaded the Colossu Repo zip file, you open Kodi go to Install from Zip file. From here you need to find the place where you have downloaded the file on your computer. You just need to select that. Hope this helps.

  35. Danny says:

    Hi I’m trying to download covenant but the add on doesn’t come out on the list when you click on video add ons from the repository. Any suggestions to what to try next?

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hey Danny, are you following the method for Colossus Repository right? When you go to install from repository > then you go to video add-ons > Then Covenant. Are you following these steps?

  36. april says:

    Your way of installing it via firestick is not correct. There is no add-ons, package installer , install from zip. Really annoyed with every one of these tutorials being of no help.

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello April, the process to install a covenant add-on has been provided in detailed steps. If you look at it, you have to download ES file explorer on your Fire Stick device and then download the Zip File etc.. Which part did you not understand please let us know so we can help.

    I am trying to download covenant on my firestick but am getting bogged down on step 15. How do you get to a generic Add-ons selection after launching Kodi? I see Add-ons, but they are specific to Pictures, Video, and Music, etc.

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Tim, could you tell me which Kodi version are you using? if its Kodi 17 then you have to click on Add-ons > Video Add-ons > Then Covenant. Tell me which version are you using and we’ll help you out.

  40. Tim Moreland says:

    I am unable to finish downloading covenant on firestick. Steps 1-14 are fine. The problem is with step 15. I am not seeing an option to select just Add-ons from the kodi home screen. I only see Add-ons as a subcategory under Pictures, Video, and Music. The layout is horizontal and doesn’t have the vertical menu layout I see in the screen captures above and echoed in your steps.

Single mom on a budget with a kid addicted to Peppa Pig and Ben and Holly and Indian nursery rhymes….We have already overplayed the YouTube channels so this gets us the European and Indian TV we need (newer episodes)!

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hey Deb, im sending you a link to another blog that tells you the steps to install another free add-on ‘StreamHub’. This add-on streams many US and UK channels for free. You will find Peppa Pig, Ben, Holly, and many more with this add-on here

  43. Deb says:

    Any other suggestions from the repository?

  44. Glenn says:

    I installed the Covensnt add-in a couple of weeks ago. For the first week it ran fine but now when I try to watch a movie new or old I get a message “No Stream” yet if I launch Exidus the stream is there, I just can’t watch the movie due to all the buffering. I have re-moved and re-installed the Covenant add-in several times but no luck. Any ideas?

  45. s. . says:

    Greetings, I been trying to download this add-on all day. I followed all the steps per the instructions but i can’t seem to get passed the add source screen. I’m currently on Kodi 17.4 . any suggestions would be appreciated.

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Are you following the written guide or the video guide? Video guide hasn’t been updated, but the written guide has been updated. You need to put this URL on your Add Source. Let me know if you need any help.

  47. Tania Harrison says:

    Hi Nick, have installed Covenant. Works fine for movies… But nothing showing for TV shows. Have tried clearing the cache but no luck. Any suggestions.

  48. Craig says:

    Seems that the repository is down? Tried multiple times from the typed blog version. Any news? Too many downloaders?

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hey Craig, which repository are you trying to install? Kodil repository is working just fine we have just checked. Its maybe due to the new version of Covenant that has been introduced which is why it may have been down for a while. But now its up and running.

  49. Andrew says:

    Movies I previously watched such as guardians of the galaxy 2 are not working or when it does work it comes in a language I do not know. I just redownloaded covenant useing kodil I don’t understand. Please help.

  50. Maria Lopez says:

    Hello, I have kodi 17.3 covenant on fire stick I am trying to figure out how to set the refresh rate so it quits stopping a movie playback randomly. It just stops and goes back to the fire stick homepage. My nephew put it on fire stick so idk how to do it. I’m just learning.

  51. vicky says:

    I tried 3 different pages to install covenant, but each time I get installation failed. Any suggestions how to get this to work?

  52. Coach Bambam says:


    Kodi 17.4
    No Limits Magic Build
    Covenant + others do not load – only display:
    Video Addons

    No menu selection appears – any ideas?

    • admin says:

      Hi Coach Bambam,
      If you are only seeing files, playlist and video addons as the only option, then this could be caused by 2 issues. First, the add-ons you are using are out-of-date. You can go to add-ons and update each one of them. If the issue still exists, then uninstall Kodi and reinstall the latest version. The Kodi build could be interfering with add-ons.

  53. Cory says:

    Hi, I have just updated Kodi to 17.4 and trying to get Covenant loaded, but when I go to video add ons, covenant isn’t listed. Not sure what I should do next.

    • admin says:

      Hi Cory,
      Looks like when you updated Kodi to the newer version, the repository for Covenant was removed during the process. I would advise you to reinstall Covenant using the steps illustrated above. Do let us know if you need anything else.

  54. Amber says:

    I have tried to install covenant three times now and each time on the last install step it gives me a “failed to install” error. I don’t know what else to do.

  55. Brandon says:

    Hello I installed covenant and everything works but have to go into system and add-ons to get to it how do I put covenant on the Kodi home screen like Exodus is?

    • admin says:

      Hi Brandon,
      To bring Covenant to Kodi home screen, just open the add-on and stream any content. Add-ons that you visit most recently appear on Kodi home screen.

      • Brandon says:

        To get the thumbnail in the movies section like Exodus you just use it and it will appear? Thanks for the help I figured you had to put the thumbnail there like a desktop screen at the bottom bar.

  56. Samantha says:

    Hi there, we just got out android box with Lodi installed and can’t seem to be able to install anything to wTch movies. It says the installation failed or something about failed to connect to network server. Please help!

    Samantha 🙂

    • admin says:

      Hello Samantha, Thanks for reaching out to us. The error of ‘Failed to connect to network’ occurs the source is not correctly added. When adding the source from File Manager, make sure there are no spelling errors in the source URL and there are no unnecessary spaces. As a precaution, remove the ending slash (/) from the URL and then try loading the repo. Do let us know if it works.

  57. Nisha says:

    Failed to install add on from zip file is the error message I receive. I have been trying for the last 3 hours. I input everything exact as instructed. I have the user android box running kodi 17.1 I have tried with the slash on the end and without please help

    • admin says:

      Hi Nisha, Looks like the dependency is malfunctioning on your Android Box and is failing to pick up the repository. This could be due to different reasons: (a) cache data and (b) missing dependency particulars. The easiest way to fix this error is by removing the source from File Manager completely. Once it is removed, restart Kodi and reinstall the source once again. If this works, then great!
      If it doesn’t, then follow these steps:
      1. Open Kodi
      2. Go to Settings > File manager > Profile Directory > Database
      3. Locate ‘Addon27.db’ and right-click to Delete
      4. Now restart Kodi and reinstall the repository (if you haven’t deleted it before)
      Do let us know if this works, cheers!

    Thank you so much! exodus stopped working and I was getting so mad hahaha

  61. Tom Gunz says:

    I have installed Covenant successfully on my fire stick but it takes a very long time for anything to load. im using Krypton Version 17.4, is anyone else having issues with load times? what can i do to speed up

  62. Blondemamba says:

    Hi, thanks for all your insights, I am no computer guru what so ever and your tips are very easy to follow! I just get the “no dependency” statement no matter which url I enter! Please help! I have tried the smashrepo, collosus and kdil version and I get to download convenant, but it fails at the end with no dependency! What can I do next? We loved exodus when it was working, also will it still work for series or is convenant good? Anything else to recommend?

    • Blondemamba says:

      I managed to download convenant on another device but it acts just like exodus and only has IMDARK as a stream option and then will say no stream available! Aaaaaa please help us get the old exodus back 🙁

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hey, You need to download Covenant from Kdil version as described in this guide. Sometimes, when Covenant gets updated it gives such errors. Don’t worry, we have just tried to install Covenant again from Kdil version and is working fine. If something like this comes up you just need to wait an hour or two and install again. It will work.
      See the snapshot, you can see all the links provided by covenant.

  63. Nabil says:

    Trying to Install Covenant on Kodi Jarvis Version 16,
    Followed the same steps mentioned but on the 3 step i don’t find ”Covenant” in list at Install from Repository > Click on Kodil Repository > Videos Add-on > ?!?
    Any Help ?

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Nabil, all the add-ons are listed in alphabetical order. You will find it when you scroll down to ‘C’ section. If you still dont find it let us know.

  64. Brandon says:

    I keep getting the dependency on version could not be satisfied, doesn’t matter what source or zip I try installing. How do I fix this? Please message me back ASAP.

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Brandon, dependency error occurs when you’ve been trying to install a repository which is not working or, if you’re installing Covenant then this issue may occur because Covenant is updating itself. Try after few hours and it will install. It happens a few times in a week.

  65. Ray says:

    I have the same issue as Nabil as well.. Followed all steps but there is no covenant in the list.

  66. jamie says:

    just downloaded and I can not get a movie . on a newer one it is a newer Kodi 17.4 and the covenant

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Jaime, Covenant was updating recently which is why it may be down. Can you check if its working now? Because it is working for us.

  67. Caleb says:

    So this worked for me, however it installed a bunch of other add ons. Should I be worried about that? Is there any advice on what to do?

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hey Caleb, what other add-ons did it install? Can you tell? Because Covenant doesn’t install other add-ons except for Covenant.

  68. Garnet says:

    I am in the same boat as Nabil and Ray.

    admin, It’s great for you that your screenshot includes Covenant, but just above Crackler in my list is something called CouchPotato Manager.

    Nothing beginning with the three letters ‘cov’ exists anywhere in the extremely long list.

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Garnet, is your Kodi version upgraded?

      • Garnet says:


        I only have an Android 4.4.2 TV Box with Kodi 16 loaded, so I don’t think I can dare try upgrading, can I?

        In just now checking the system info, I supposedly have anywhere from 411 to 415 megabytes of free memory, although I have seen it suddenly drop below 400 briefly at times.

        • Nick Michaelson says:

          Hey Grant, try installing Covenant from Colossus Repository. Download Colossus Repo Zip File from here.
          Now Open Kodi > System > Addons > Install from Zip File > Navigate the downloaded file > Install from Repository > Colossus Repo > Video Add-ons > Then Covenant. Hope this works. Do let us know if it works Grant.

          • Garnet says:

            Success, Nick!

            But I don’t know if it was this new .zip file or not ? which I had to download twice, for the first time I got a message to the effect that the connection couldn’t be made. So maybe I made a typo ? I didn’t know.

            I think you probably abbreviated the steps you listed, for you didn’t indicate what I should name the file. The first time, I just left it at the defaulted name, but the second time I renamed it “Colossus”.

            When I looked for it after opening Kodi, there was nothing identified as “Colossus Repo.” Maybe you hd meant that I was supposed to give it that name?

            However, there wasn’t anything named “Colossus” either.

            The collection of Add-ons looked no different than they did before when I said that the only add-on listed immediately above Crackler was CouchPotato Manager.

            I scrolled up and down looking for anything containing the name “Covenant” or even “Colossus” or “Colossal”.

            Then eventually I noticed at the very end of the long list of Add-ons was an option saying something like “View more” ? I can’t exactly recall what it said just now.

            I clicked on it, but never really noticed anything; and so I went right out of that area to the Home screen and worked my way back to the Add-ons.

            This time, the list was incredibly enormous. I couldn’t even find where I was supposed to go at first because they weren’t always alphabetically arranged ? it was almost as if the add-ons were in some sort of categories, and alphabetized within those.

            It was all so confusing that I began wondering if maybe this was a whole new area I had not been in before.

            After a considerable bit of scrolling, I eventually found Crackler. And this time there were two Add-ons between it and CouchPotato Manager ? Covenant and something called Cpasbien viewer.

            I clicked on Covenant, and then saw that it claimed that it was now downloading. It took quite a few seconds before 0% moved up to just 1%, so I just left it alone and went off and did something else.

            When the task was finished, I went back to the Kodi screen where one normally selects Videos if the intention is to go to Exodus from there to watch movies or TV shows.

            But there was no large icon there for Covenant like there is for Exodus and the half-dozen others that are there.

            I then noticed that just under the “Video” heading ? and before the Exodus icon ? was a link labelled (I think) Addons, so I clicked on that.

            A list of them were displayed, including Covenant. And when I clicked on it, suddenly all the usual choices were there for choosing movies or TV shows, and then the other subsections like Genres and so forth.

            I sampled three TV shows just to see what sources were listed, including one I have yet to watch ? The Inhumans. I can never access a working source for the premier episode, and that still seems to be the case for whatever reason even with Covenant.

            But the movies! When I tried those, I couldn’t believe the almost endless sources! It was like a miracle, for I had pretty much given up on movies because Exodus was only providing a half-dozen sources at best for new movies, and no streams from them ever were available if they were selected.

            Anyway, to be honest, I don’t know if the new download you suggested was what I found when I opted to view more addons and finally came across Covenant; or if Covenant was there in the Add-ons all this while from a few days ago, but I did not realize that there was that option to view more addons than what were being displayed.

            Anyway, the midnight hour is already half finished here at the west coast of Canada, so I won’t be watching anything tonight ? I will have to wait until Friday evening before giving Covenant a trial run.

            But I am feeling most encouraged ? so thank you very much for sticking with this problem I had, Nick!

            I’ll give the website some mentions in my personal blog ? I already did a couple of days ago, but now I can do so with considerable praise!

          • Nick Michaelson says:

            Success, Finally!!! Great to hear those words Grant. We were never so pleased to satisfy a user like yourself. I believe it was your first time using Kodi, and you did great. You stuck to the task and finally made it through. It would be wonderful if our website gets some mention in your personal blog. It would be great! Do let us know when you get it published!!! Thanks again for stopping by and we bid you Good Night!!!

  69. Mark says:

    I am running covenant on three separate devices. Two on an Android box and one on pc. One Android kodi version 17 works well, second Android & pc both version 16. In both Kodi version 16 applications, Movies in particular only return very few (8) sources of which all end up in “no stream available”. The same search via the android box v17 returns 90 sources with good streams. All using covenant from the Colossus repo. Updates are current. Any suggestions

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Mark, I think you must update the Kodi 16 version to Kodi 17 version. Try this and let us know if it works.

      • Mark says:

        Thanks for the suggestion. I updated to Kodi v17 on the pc and all was good. However, the android is a v4.4 OS (too old) and Kodi 17 won’t load (needs 5.0 OS or better) so I ended up completely uninstalling not only covenant but Kodi as well from the Android and then reinstalling to get everything working again properly. uninstalling Covenant only and reinstalling did not resolve the issue.

  70. Ashley says:

    Hello. When I get to the add ons page nothing comes up. It’s empty. What are my options?

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hey Ashley, when you get to the add-ons page you need to go to Video-Add-on and then Covenant. Did you install the Covenant add-on or it is before you installed the add-on?

  71. LORIE HEWETT says:

    I installed the kodil repo that was listed above and followed all the steps and installed it and watched a movie that I wasn’t able to get on Exodus. However, it had spam and foreign language subtitles across the entire movie! At times it took it more than half the screen. Is this the only option I have to watch a movie?? Any suggestions?

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hey Lorie, your Kodi might be corrupted because ths dow not happen while watching movies from Covenant add-on. You would need to entirely reset Kodi and then install Covenant again. In Kodi add-on official repository, you will find Fresh Start add-on. Install that and refresh the entire Kodi. This should help.

  72. Ann Scott says:

    Hi, Covernant was working brilliantly at the beginning of the week and now it’s not working at all. Done all the “fixes” that I have seen explained when googling issue and nothing worked. Is this a widespread issue with an update as other people seem to be experiencing problems recently? Is there any solution?

    • Nick Michaelson says:

      Hello Ann, can you tell us specifically what kind of errors are you receiving? Sometimes Covenant does not work when it is going through update changes. You can tell us which error are your receiving so we could recommend you the alternative repository.

  73. Andrea says:

    Hi guys, I’ve been trying to download Covenant for the last week now and I can’t seem to get it. Is the link still correct?
