Kodi HD movie addons

The search for the best HD video addons is nothing new. However, as ISPs continue to offer both faster speeds and more bandwidth, streaming in HD is easier than ever. While streaming in HD won’t matter much to those watching older television shows and movies, newer shows, live TV and newer movies are increasingly shot in HD. Streaming these will maximize your enjoyment of them as well. Among Kodi HD streaming addons, streaming options for sports, TV and movies are easy to find.

Not every Kodi HD streaming addon will connect you to great HD streams. However, the following 10 you provide you with a mixture of excellent HD streaming options. Keep in mind that no two addons are alike, although some of these options are fairly similar in how they operate. On a similar note, some of these addons have much more extensive options than others on the list. For this list, we chose HD streaming addons that connect to various forms of entertainment media (sports, live tv, movies, etc.), and that provide mostly clear indications that the content is streaming in HD or high quality.

Phoenix

Phoenix continues to be a great option for movie streaming. As one of many Kodi HD addons, it’s a good option, although far from the best option on our list. You can find a small number of streams labeled as HD using the search function. However, many of the HD options are completely unlabeled. Your best bet to finding a lot of HD streams is simply through a bit of trial and error.

*Note: Phoenix is located in the TVADDONS.ag Addon Repository. If you already have this repository installed, you can locate it by going to Settings > Add-ons > Install from repository > TVADDONS.ag Addon Repository.

Good Fellas

Goodfellas has a very large library of streams specifically labeled as “HD”. You can easily find these options using the search feature. These streaming options cross into most forms of entertainment media, with a particular focus on live TV and sports. This does not comprise the entirety of Good Fellas’ HD options, so you may still find some options through trial and error of different streams. Thankfully, Good Fellas takes out most of the guess work.

  • Head to “System”. From there, click on “File Manager”.
  • Click on “Add source”.
  • Under “Add source”, select “<None>”. In the box, type in “http://www.goodfellasteam.com/Repository/”. Select “Done”. It will prompt you the source a name. Just name it something related. Select “OK” to move on.

Movies4K.to

Among Kodi HD streaming addons, Movies4k.to continues to be a great option. You’ll find a lot of movies offer HD versions. While none of the films and tv shows available through the addon are specifically labeled as “HD”, you can find the HD options by looking for the quality rating. Movies4k.to rates quality for each stream from 1 (poor) to 5 (high). For HD, only stream movies or show with a quality rating of 5.

*Note: Movies4K.to is located in the Fusion Installer from TVADDONS. If you already have the Fusion Installer, simply install the “repository.eleazar-x.x.zip” file to install “nickat’s Kodi Add-on Repository”. Movies4K.to is the only video add-on in this repo.

Exodus

Exodus is still rather new, and still showing its chops. Its HD streaming options are not only extremely vast but also very well labeled. While Exodus will try to automatically connect you to the first working stream, you’ll want to bypass this feature if you want to get the HD streams specifically. Simply go into the information for each individual stream to get a list of streaming options for each movie or tv show. You’ll see which ones are HD or SD there. Simply choose the HD streams.

*Note: Exodus is located in the Fusion Installer from TVADDONS. If you already have the Fusion Installer, simply install the “repository.exodus-x.x.zip” file to install “Exodus Repository”. Exodus is the only video add-on in this repo.

iLiVE StreamLive 

iLiVE has a surprisingly large amount of HD streams. These HD streams cover almost every area of entertainment media but are particularly focused on movies. However, as iLiVE’s name suggests, this is probably your best option if you’re looking for live TV in HD. You can find iLiVE’s HD streaming options pretty easily through the search option. iLiVE remains a great option because of how well categorized it is, with HD options in almost every category.

  • First, download the iLiVE StreamLive zip file.
  • After you have installed the file, load up Kodi.
  • Click on “System”. Head over to “Settings”

SALTS (Stream All the Sources)

Anyone using Exodus for streaming should also have SALTS, if not for a backup, then as an equivalent option. Like Exodus, SALTs operates as a multi-scrapper, pouring over a large list of sites in order to bring in streams. The search function allows you to find HD streams directly by searching “HD”. However, to more efficiently find what you’re looking for, check the streams available for each video. It should tell you which streams are coming in for either HD or High Quality. Although SALTS will automatically grab the first working stream for you for films, you can change the settings to only give you HD options or change the order to prioritize HD and high-quality streams.

To install SALTS, follow these steps:

  • Head to “Programs”.
  • Click on”Addon Installer”.
  • Click on “Featured Addons”.
  • Select and install “SALTS”.

SALTS install

  • You will find the SALTS add-on under “Videos> Add-ons”.

  • Go to “Programs”.
  • Go to “Addon Installer”.

The Royal We

Check the video streams in The Royal We. Most will have a large selection of options, and each will tell you the quality of the videos in the stream. Thankfully, most new movies are streaming in very good high quality, so long as the stream is not broken. Positively, The Royal We provides a lot of information about each video’s streams. That should go a long way to helping you pinpoint the right ones with the HD and high-quality streams.

To install this add-on, do the following:

  • Head to “Programs”

Kodi Popcorn Time

The resurrection of the original Popcorn Time, Kodi Popcorn Time helpfully lets you know when you’ve got HD or SD streams on your hands. Unlike many other add-ons, Kodi Popcorn Time lets you know directly whether a stream is in HD or not. No need to click through the streams to find the right one. The only problem you’ll have to deal with for Kodi Popcorn Time is the potential for dead streams. It does not have a resolver similar to what you’ll find on Exodus or SALTs, so keep that in mind.

To get Kodi Popcorn Time, do the following:

  • Go to “Programs”.
  • Click on “Addon Installer”.
  • Go to “Video Addons”
  • Scroll through the pages until you find “Kodi Popcorn Time”.

Popcorn Time install

  • Install the addon.
  • You will find this addon under your “Videos > Addons” screen.

HD Box

HD Box lives up to its name fairly well. You’ll find a wide range of new movie options in HD. In fact, many of the movies streaming to HD Box are coming in at 1080. HD Box provides a good option for those that don’t want to bother trying to sift through different streams to find HD. in our testing, the first stream to open ended up being HD in the random selection we chose.
