The very popular add-on for Kodi, Covenant, served as an excellent replacement to the Exodus add-on, however, it wrapped up its game leaving many Kodi users in great awe.
The said add-on could originally be found under the “Colossus Repository” which had been getting legal threats and was finally shut down. The news came as a shocker when one of the developers of the Colossus Group posted on his Twitter account that the Colossus Repository is no more.
Fortunately, there is still light at the end of the tunnel. After the death of Colossus Repository, the Covenant add-on can be installed from another repository, XvBMC Repo, which still is very much alive and kicking. Covenant is a great add-on for Kodi, offering a variety of HD movies and TV shows you can watch to your heart’s content.
