The Crew Kodi Addon – How to Install and Use

By following this guide, you’ll be able to install and use The Crew Kodi addon. The Crew can be added once you have Kodi installed on your device. If you haven’t already done that, you can click here to install Kodi.

Kodi can be installed on almost any device, e.g. Firestick, Fire Cube, Nvidia Shield, Android box, Chromecast, phones, tablets, PC and more. This guide uses a Fire TV Stick 4K MAX; however, the steps are similar on other devices. 

The Amazon Firestick is undoubtedly the most popular streaming device on the market right now due to its low price and ability to jailbreak it with just a few simple tweaks. It’s a perfect streaming device for beginners as well as advanced users who wish to cut the cord.

What is The Crew Addon?

The Crew is undoubtedly a perfect addon. Because it’s an all-in-one Kodi addon, you’ll find lots of on-demand content. Categories include Movies, TV Shows, 1 Clicks, Kids, Sports, and more. As well as on-demand content, The Crew also has an excellent IPTV section for access to thousands of live TV channels from across the globe.

This addon chiefly searches and scrapes free links from online databases and websites. However, The Crew works particularly well with Real Debrid. Real Debrid, to clarify, is a premium service that searches for premium-quality links. This provides many more links in buffer-free and high quality, up to 4K in resolution.

This addon 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!

Is The Crew Addon Legal?

Due to the nature of this addon, it is impossible to verify whether The Crew is indeed legal. However, most links scraped from databases and websites are unlikely to 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 app with a VPN
