Evolve is a new sports addon for Kodi that’s giving sports enthusiasts a reason to celebrate. The addon is possibly one of the most unique to date with its 8 different sections of niche worthy content: Evolve Sports, Goliath, Kraken, Gorgon, Trapper, Hank, Slim and Markov. We’ll go into more detail on what each of them contains towards the end of this article (or you can skip down). Evolve allows users to access free streams of live TV in addition to libraries of your favourite TV shows, movies, and more. In this article, we’re going to walk you through every step to get Evolve installed on Kodi as well as a review of the pros and cons of the addon.

From UFC Zone to Sports Pack to Bein Sports, Evolve Sports comes with all your channel needs. In Evolve’s Goliath you can access festivals, fitness, audio books, documentaries, live TV, and movies.
Kraken is also another awesome section which includes more movies, live TV, a UFC section, and even a world radio. Gorgon is home to 24/7 channels with the latest TV, weird stuff, and an album of the week.
Evolve even thought of the kids with their Trapper section, which has a Kids Zone in addition to Car Shows and the Lottery Draw for adults. In Hank, you’ll find sports news, WWE matches, and Moneysports. Golf documentaries, drumming, and console videos are included in the Slim section.
Looking for your source of HD movies, B movies, and Karaoke? Go to the Markov section! Last but not least is Wraith, a rather new section that offers life hacks, Pokémon Go, and information for moms and dads.
To see how Evolve performs, I went to the Bein Sports section. To my surprise, I experienced no buffering which also meant that I was never kicked out.
The Evolve addon is huge and, thus, it proves to be a top source of a wide variety of entertainment needs. As of now, I can’t find anything bad to say about the addon, so get to watching some of your favorite channels and check out Evolve.
