Wrapping things up

Navigating the add-ons is fairly straight forward as they are menu driven. Try searching for a movie of your choice. You will notice numerous streams appear. These streams will have strings such as 1080P, HD, HQ, MQ, and LQ. These indicate the quality of the video.

It’s worth noting that many of the streams are provided by free file hosting services. If you’ve ever used them, you will know that there are daily bandwidth limits, throttling, and in some cases delays in accessing the stream. Keep this in mind when cycling through the stream to find a quality one. If you have a lot of trouble finding quality streams, try a premium service for sources such as Real-Debrid.
