How to install Neptune Rising on Kodi

Kodi developers answer to Hollywood strike with new add-on.

If you are an active Kodi user, then you might have run into some issues with your add-ons. Many users, including myself, reported that certain add-ons were slow, or merely not working at all. Specifically, I was having issues with Exodus as that was my primary source for TV shows and movies. The sudden block of media add-ons could very well have to do with the recent strike Hollywood hit on Kodi developers.

So, I went out to find another add-on or source to replace, or fix, Exodus. During my search, I found Neptune Rising, and so far it has worked flawlessly. Neptune Rising is a new Exodus/Covenant fork from the Blamo repository. The code was updated and because of this, pulls in more streams.  If you are worried about learning a new layout; don’t. Neptune Rising is damn near similar to Exodus’ and Covenant’s previous design makes navigation extremely simple.

Here’s how you can download and install Neptune Rising on Kodi:

  1. At the home screen in Kodi, click the top left system settings icon.
  2. Click file manager.
  3. Select Add Source on the left.
  4. Click where it says none and enter the URL http://blamo.teverz.com/ and select OK.
  5. This window is the name of the media source. Name the media source “Blamo” and select OK.
  6. Double check everything and select OK.
  7. Go back to the home screen again and select Add-ons in the left menu.
  8. Select the Add-on Package Installer icon on the top left. It will look similar to an open box.
  9. Select Install from zip file.
  10. Select Blamo.
  11. Select repository.blamo.zip
  12. Wait for an alert on the top right that tells you the Add-on has installed.
  13. Go back to Install from Repository. Some versions will take you right to this screen.
  14. Select Blamo Repository.
  15. Select Video Add-ons.
  16. Select Neptune Rising.
  17. Click Install.

Done!
