What is the 4K Kodi Addon?

4K is another addition to the Narcacist Repository. As the name suggests, this addon is particularly excellent for streaming movies and TV shows in 4K. This addon is hassle free as it’s one-click, meaning that with just one-click, your movie or shows starts to play straightaway. Categories include 4K Movies by Year, 4K TV Shows, 4K Movie Boxsets, as well as 4K Kids Movies and more.

This addon works by searching for premium links only. Therefore, a Real Debrid or other debrid account is required. Real Debrid, to clarify, is a premium service that searches for premium-quality links. This provides plenty of links in buffer-free and high quality, up to 4K in resolution.

This addon is also compatible with Trakt. This is a great tool in order to synchronise all of your favourite movies, shows, watchlists and more across multiple devices and applications. With Trakt, you can always keep on top of what you’re watching and what’s more, never miss an episode!

Is the 4K Addon Legal?

Due to the nature of this addon, it is impossible to verify if the 4K Kodi addon is indeed legal or not. However, it is unlikely that the majority of links scraped from databases and websites hold the proper licencing for distributing the content. In reality, this means you will be unlawfully streaming copyrighted content. Doing so could get you into legal trouble. Accordingly, you may prefer to use this addon with a VPN

  1. I’ve followed all steps, I used Trackt instead of Real Debrid. Everytime I try to watch a movie the Real Debrid pop up keeps popping up and won’t allow me to watch the media.
