Alvin Kodi Addon Description & Details

Alvin is a newer fork of the Exodus addon that has a user-friendly interface and works very well, especially for those familiar with Exodus.

The main menu includes Movies, TV Shows, Documentaries, Networks, Boxsets, Tools, and Search.

For best results, Using Real-Debrid will bring the highest quality links for a buffer-free experience.

If you are a Trakt user, you can also integrate your account within Alvin which will keep all your content in sync.

Overall, Alvin is an awesome Kodi addon that works fabulously on all devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4k.

Is Alvin Kodi Addon Legal?

It’s impossible for TROYPOINT to determine whether these unverified addons/apps hold the proper licensing.

If and when an add-on is deemed illegal, we notify our users immediately and update reports on our Website to reflect that information.

At first glance, it would appear that Alvin is distributing copyrighted works without consent.

Users can always access titles that are available for free in the public domain.

Works such as this are not protected by copyright laws and may be downloaded, streamed, and shared without any legal ramifications.

In conclusion, the end-user is responsible for all content accessed through add-ons such as the Alvin Kodi Addon.

  1. Is The Crew a repo only for KODI, or can it be installed on an Android device via APK, or by some other means? Because KODI takes up too much space, which slows everything down.

    I can assure you The Crew has been working Flawlessly for it least 6 months. It’s one of my daily go to Addons. Have you reathorized your RD account in ResolveURL? Also what version of KODI are you running? 20.2 is the latest.

    And you also need to Authorize Trakt in each addon you use. I love Trakt been using it for Years

    And as far as IPTV in KODI? Forget about it. These dev’s are unpaid hobbyists so what is working today may not tomorrow. Lot’s of us here have a paid IPTV service. I use KODI + RD + Trakt for all my Shows/Movies VOD and an IPTV service for Live Sports and News. That is all I watch live

  3. Avatar for MarkxG MarkxG says:

    Yeah that show started over 25 years ago. Unfortunately even with Real Debrid you are not going to find streams for some of the older seasons.

  4. Avatar for Miki Miki says:

    For things like that you should look at the retro TV apps on google play. Things like RD rely on many of their customers to fill out the library of content and it’s virtually impossible to have every single episode of every series ever broadcast. The storage and infrastructure required is mind boggling.

  5. Do they pull different links than Seren?
    I’ve had Crew before and seemed the same.

    Also does moving the VPN location make any difference in the links pulled?

  6. Avatar for MarkxG MarkxG says:

    Sorry I don’t use Seren or a VPN perhaps someone else can assist
