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.
The Movies and TV Shows categories work well, and most media contain high quality links.
However, it’s important to point out that Alvin does not provide 1080p links as of this post. The 720 links do work well, but if you want 1080p or 4k you will want to integrate real-debrid.
Alvin also does not provide Live TV streaming, as the add-on is known for Movies and TV Shows. Many Kodi addons in general are not reliable for live streaming.
We recommend checking out IPTV services for quality Live TV streaming. See our IPTV guide below.
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 a solid Kodi addon that works great on all devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4k.

Warning! Protect Yourself With A VPNMost cord-cutters use a VPN and rightfully so.
The free streaming applications, addons, and paid IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.
Without a VPN, your IP Address is being logged.
Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.
Your current IP Address is 18.104.22.168 – When you use a VPN, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.
A VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet.
This will prevent your Internet Service Provider, app/addon developers, government agencies, and any 3rd party from logging what you’re accessing online.
The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is IPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy.
Its important to use a VPN that is fast since we are streaming large HD files. Its also crucial to find one that keeps no logs of what their subscribers access while online.
Setting up IPVanish VPN on your streaming device is simple!
Step 1 Register for an IPVanish VPN account by clicking the link below.
This exclusive link provides you with a hefty discount, only available to TROYPOINT visitors like you.

Step 2 – Hover over the search icon on your Firestick, Fire TV, or Fire TV Cube and type in “Ipvanish”
You may also find the IPVanish App in the Google Play Store for those of you who are using Android TV Boxes, phones, and tablets.
Step 3 – Click the IPVanish VPN option that appears.
Step 4 – Click the IPVanish icon under Apps & Games.
Step 5 – Click Download.
Step 6 – Click Open.
Step 7 – Enter your username and password to login. Your username is the email that you used to register for IPVanish service with and your password is automatically generated and emailed to you.
Step 8 – Click Connect button.
Step 9 – Click OK for Connection request if it appears.
Step 10 – You will notice that your IP Address changes along with location of connection. You are now operating anonymously through your device.
Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.
Congratulations! You are now protected by a VPN which means everything that you stream or access through your Firestick or Android TV Box is hidden from the rest of the world.
If you ever need to stop the VPN service, simply re-launch the application and click the DISCONNECT button.
