What is the Shazam Kodi Addon?

Shazam is an on-demand addon for streaming movies and TV shows and includes a one-click section for hassle-free viewing.

This addon works by scraping free links from websites. However, Shazam works particularly well with a premium account such as Real Debrid. Real Debrid, to clarify, is a premium service that searches for premium-quality links.

Shazam is also compatible with Trakt. This is a great tool to synchronise 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!

The Shazam Kodi addon can be found in the Narcacist’s Wizard Repository along with the Patriot, and Magic Dragon addons.

Is the Shazam 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
