What is the POV Kodi Addon?

POV is an excellent video-on-demand addon for watching movies and TV shows from premium sources. The POV addon can be found in the Kodifitzwell Repository.

Based on the Fen addon, POV is very fast and includes many of the same features.

Is the POV Kodi Addon Legal?

Yes, it certainly is! This addon does not host any content and is essentially just a search engine. It is, therefore, 100% legal to install. However, most links scraped from databases and websites are unlikely to hold the proper licencing for broadcasting/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
