How to Install Gen-X Addon on Kodi / FireStick

Gen-X is the latest and greatest Audio/Video/Picture/Generel Addon for Kodi/XBMC/Firestick. A Kodi addon is a free application that allows you to watch/listen to Movies, TV Shows, Live Sports, Documentaries, etc. on your device.

Gen-X Addon is a Kodi / FireStick Addon which allows you to watch any Gen-X content (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc.) in the Kodi App and also enables you to watch the stream in HD. Gen-X Addon has a lot of features that makes it a great Addon to install. Including:

In this tutorial I will show you how to install the Gen-X addon on Kodi 18 Leia and Kodi 17.6 Krypton. The method described in this guide works on Amazon FireStick, FireStick 4K, Fire TV Cube, Mac, Linux and Windows, Android phones and any other device platform that supports Kodi.

Gen-X is a versatile entertainment add-on that offers an impressive collection of movies, TV shows, music videos, sports, live videos, kids videos, documentaries and more. This addon is part of the Maverick repo, one of the most popular in the Kodi world. The Kodi Gen-X addon works and broadcasts perfectly. Each category has a good selection of videos, and all the links I clicked on worked. I had no doubt that Gen-X would make it to our list of the best Kodi addons.

Although Gen-X offers many free streams, it works even better when you combine it with Real-Debrid. It has some special categories reserved for Real-Debrid. These categories offer higher quality videos and only work if you are logged in with a Real Debrid Premium account.

Update: The Gen X addon is not currently available due to the Maverick repo. Then try one of the other addons from our list of the best Kodi addons.

To install the Gen-X addon on Kodi

Gen X is a third-party addon. And if you’re installing a third-party add-on for the first time, you’ve probably disabled unknown sources. This option must be enabled to allow Gen X or a third-party addon. So let’s get this over with:

#1 : Launch the Kodi app and tap Settings in the top left corner of the Kodi home screen when it opens.

#2 : Click on System (Kodi 18) or System Settings (Kodi 17.6).

#3 : Click on Advanced in the left menu, then on Unknown sources in the right menu (only if this feature is disabled or not). Make sure the switch is in the ON position.

#4 : Confidently click Yes because Gen X is a safe and trusted addon. I have personally tested and used it

Message: It would be a good idea to disable unknown sources after installing Gen X

Before you start streaming video with Kodi addons or modules, I want to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and the government. This means that streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live broadcasts and sports) can lead to legal problems.

Fortunately, there is a reliable way to hide all your streaming activities from your ISP and the government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN masks your original IP address and helps you bypass Internet monitoring, ISP restrictions, and geographic content limitations.

Personally, I use and recommend ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all types of applications and streaming devices.

OPINION: We do not encourage copyright infringement. But what if you accidentally upload content from an illegal source? It is not always easy to distinguish between a legal and an illegal source.

So before you start streaming on Kodi, read here how to get VPN protection in 3 easy steps.

Step one: Purchase your ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. This means you can use it for free for the first 30 days. If you are not satisfied with the service (which is unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.

Step two: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN application on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have included the exact steps below, starting with step 4.

Step three: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That’s it. Now your connection is secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.

The steps to install Kodi VPN on Fire TV devices are described below. If you have other broadcast devices, follow steps 1 to 3 above.

Step four: Sign up for ExpressVPN HERE (if you are not already a subscriber).

Step 5: Go to the Fire TV Stick home screen. Click the Search button and then the Search option (see figure below).

Step six: Type expressvpn into the search bar and select when it appears.

Seventh step: Click on the Download button.

Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN application and log in using the username and password you created when you purchased your ExpressVPN subscription.

Step 9: Click on the power icon to connect to the VPN server. That’s it. Now your FireStick is protected with the fastest VPN.

Gen-X Kodi Addon : Brief overview

There are two ways to access the Gen-X addon on Kodi:

#1. On the Kodi home screen, select Addons (don’t click on it) and open Gen-X in the Video Addons section on the right.

#2. On the Kodi start screen, click on Addons and in the next screen select Video Addons (don’t click). Open Gen-X on the right side of the screen.

Gen-X is a versatile add-on that lets you watch movies, shows, music, sports, live streams, documentaries and more. On the home screen, you will find different categories for these streaming options

There are many special categories in the addon for content available through Real-Debrid. This means that you need a premium account with Real-Debrid in combination with Gen-X to view this content.

In addition to Real Debrid’s special offers, you will also find other categories such as the latest TV packages, live TV and catch-up TV, live sports, 24/7 movies and TV shows, kids TV, documentaries, etc.

The navigation is fast, but the content is not well placed, especially movies and TV shows. Finding your favorite title can be a challenge.


Gen-X is one of the best addons for Kodi I’ve come across lately. It contains a huge collection of videos. There are a lot of real debris categories here, but also a lot of free stuff. Navigation is fast and playback is at the touch of a button. In fact, the one-click view makes this addon really interesting.

The layout is one aspect of Gen-X that is not very appealing. It seems that the developers were careful when coding, but hasty when finishing. Poorly organized categories make it difficult to find the right content. Unfortunately, they don’t even have a search function on the home screen. That would be very helpful.

However, the Kodi Gen-X addon is still pretty good. On-demand television and IPTV work very well. It’s definitely worth a try.
