Covenant is a popular Kodi addon based on Exodus. It streams movies and TV shows using several websites as sources. Covenant has all the features of its predecessor such as support, library integration, foreign providers, premium accounts, file downloads and more.

Covenant is no longer maintained, we recommend using Incursion. Incursion is a popular fork of Covenant with the same features and it’s frequently updated. Please read How to install Incursion on Kodi.

easy to follow! did a fresh install on a windows 7 pc. never installed or even looked at installing this myself. had it done, with covenant, and watching shows inside 10 minutes…Thanks for the precise and easy instructions!!


I’m new to Android and Kodi and I can’t find any of these places the instructions show. Kodi (installed from Google Play) says when it opens its 17.4, yet the menu system you show is totally different then what is show on my box. I can’t find file manager within Kodi.
So I downloaded the zip file and it said it installed it, yet I can’t find it or figure out if its really installed.


Did you even try to install it on fresh kodi? Its really annoying that the same posts keeps getting copied from one site to other and you dont even try it by yourself. This whole procedure does NOT work.


Covenant was working fine until I cleared the cache for Kodi through the media box setting. Now the background wallpaper for Covenant is missing, movies and tv shows wont load under certain categories, etc

I enabled the download feature in Covenant, but when I pic a link in unable to get a context menu with the download option to appear. One tried using both the dedicated context button and the C key on my airmouse. Anyone have any ideas?


Every time I try to install colossus repo from zip it fails… any suggestions?
