Were you a die-hard fan of Kodi’s add-on Genesis? Missed it after it became inaccessible? If yes, then there is a great news for you. Yes, you got it right! The add-on is back with a bang in new and a better form. The successor is known as Genesis Reborn. Just like its forerunner, it can be used to stream unlimited movies and TV shows for free.
It is quite common for Kodi’s add-ons to become inoperative after a certain period but rarely you’ll find an add-on returning back with a bang. This is exactly the case with Genesis Reborn. It is the rebirth of its popular predecessor, Genesis and offers unremitting TV and movie streaming. You can install this add-on by just following the steps mentioned below.
Like always, we’ll help you out in installing the add-on but before proceeding, we’d like to advise you to always use a VPN for safe streaming. You must be knowing that most of the add-ons including Genesis Reborn are from third-party sources, so this may create copyright infringement when you’ll use them in Kodi. Therefore, for safe and seamless streaming, it is advisable that you should use VPN.
Steps to Install Genesis Reborn
Genesis Reborn was launched in March 2017 and since then, many new versions of the add-on have been launched. This add-on is available in many repositories and it can even be downloaded directly through a zip file found on Github. Though there are other methods also but they may or may not work, so we’ll tell you about two credible and functional methods.
