Kodi is a free home theatre software with an extensive content library available through add-ons. Unfortunately, despite the huge developer community, Kodi content is often limited to specific regions — for example, you can’t get add-ons for US-only content outside of the States.

How to unblock Kodi add-ons with a VPN

Here’s how Kodi blocking works: your internet service provider (ISP) assigns an IP address to you, which is used to determine where you are and what geo-restrictions apply to you. In addition, some Kodi content might be blocked due to your country’s laws or your ISP’s policy.

No matter where you are, NordVPN lets you hide your IP and get any add-on you desire. When you connect to a VPN server located in a particular country, any website or service you visit will be shown an IP address native to that region. This means that country-specific geo-restrictions no longer apply and you’re free to enjoy previously blocked content.

Once you get a NordVPN subscription, setting it up on your Kodi device is easy. You can read our detailed guide or just follow these simple steps:

  1. Make sure that OpenVPN is installed on Kodi
  2. Download the NordVPN add-on from and add it to Kodi
  3. In the Kodi interface, go to Settings > System settings > Add-ons and switch Unknown sources ON
  4. Back in the Home screen, click on Add-ons, then go to Package in the top-left corner, select Install from zip file, then locate the downloaded NordVPN file
  5. Once the installation finishes, choose to run the setup Wizard when prompted
  6. During setup, enter your NordVPN credentials
Using Kodi with a VPN is safer

Since Kodi’s content library ranges from TV shows to P2P files, accessing it can put you at risk. Fortunately, NordVPN encrypts your connection and shields your online activities from your ISP, network administrator, and any malicious snoops. And since we follow a strict zero-logs policy, your business is strictly your business — we wouldn’t be able to tell even if pressured.

Best of all, your security and privacy don’t come at the cost of your connection speed. Thanks to our extensive server network and state-of-the-art infrastructure, you can safely enjoy content on Kodi without any additional buffering.
