The Crew Kodi Addon – How to Install and Use

Take a look at my video how to install and use The Crew Kodi addon for full details or check out the information below instead. The Crew can be added once you have Kodi installed on your device. If you haven’t already done that, then 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 too. 

The Amazon Firestick is certainly 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 advanced users who wish to cut the cord.

What is The Crew?

The Crew is certainly a very good addon. Because it’s an all-in-one Kodi addon, you’ll find lots of on-demand content to choose from. Categories include Movies, TV Shows, 1 Clicks, Kids, as well as Sports and more. As well as on-demand content, The Crew also has a great IPTV section for access to thousands of live TV channels from across the globe. This addon chiefly works by searching and scraping 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. Overall, 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 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 Crew Addon Legal?

Due to the nature of this addon, it is impossible to verify if The Crew 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 app with a VPN


Your online activity is open to threats and snooping from your ISP, hackers, or governments. For that reason, a VPN can help to protect and defend you against any attacks. Using a VPN can also unblock access to the internet in countries where the internet is censored and can bypass other geographical restrictions.

In order to stream anonymously, stay protected, and unlock the internet, I recommend using NordVPN.

Legal Copyright Disclaimer: As has been noted, streaming copyrighted content is unlawful and could get you into legal trouble. On account of this, we do not condone the streaming of copyrighted content. Therefore, check your local laws for streaming content online before doing so.
