The complete Kodi VPN Guide

Enjoy the ultimate streaming experience with the best VPN for Kodi

What is Kodi?

As it is now known, Kodi is an open-source home theatre software app that lets you access a wide range of video and music content on nearly any device – and it's 100% free. The software dates back all the way to 2002 when it was known as Xbox Media Player. In 2003 it became Xbox Media Center. Eventually, one year later, the XBMC Foundation gave it its final name – Kodi.

In essence, Kodi is the ultimate streaming entertainment app, with only one caveat: the content you can access does not come readily available straight out of the box.

To make the most out of the app, you'll need to install addons that range from screensaver apps, weather apps, Twitter-feed add-ons, and all the way to tools that let you stream content from virtually any place on Earth.

Why a Kodi VPN is a must

Kodi offers arguably the best solution for accessing streaming services. And while users have the option of going for the paid streaming services such as Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Apple TV, it’s the unofficial add-ons that truly make Kodi shine.

And this is exactly where a VPN comes in handy. Because these add-ons too, are hit by geo-restrictions. This means if you’re not in the country where the channel you want to stream is normally broadcast, you won’t be able to watch it. Unless you’re using a VPN, that is. A virtual private network – which is what VPN stands for – will hide your real IP address and replace it with one that allows you to stream content worldwide no matter where you’re from.

Plus, all your online traffic stays private when using a VPN, and your personal data is secured—all the more reasons to want to use one.

How to install a VPN for Kodi

Since Kodi works across a high number of operating systems and devices, the VPN installation methods are a bit different. If you’re using a Mac, iPhone, Windows device, or Android phone all you need to do is download and install the CyberGhost VPN app that corresponds to the device you’re using Kodi on. Afterward, all that remains is to connect to a VPN server from a location where the add-on you want to use is not geo-blocked. Then, open Kodi and you’re all set.

If you’re using Kodi on Smart TV or a set-top box, the installation process can be a bit tricky, but nothing to fear. We’ve prepared step-by-step guides that you can check out below:
