TvAddons.ag has been down for a few days now, and although we suspect it’s due to a forthcoming update, you don’t have to go without TV in the meantime. There are a number of alternative repositories that can let you get back to your favourite shows, and we’ll be covering these below.
As always, we’d like to stress the importance of using a virtual private network (VPN) whenever you use Kodi. A lot of internet service providers don’t like their users streaming video – a VPN stops them from detecting this and limiting your network speeds. IPVanish is a good choice because it doesn’t log the places you visit and doesn’t slow your connection down, plus it’s relatively cheap.

SuperRepo is one of the largest repositories out there. It features hundreds of video add-ons, a good selection of music and even skins for Kodi itself. Helpfully, it separates its collection of third-party add-ons from the official SuperRepo ones so you can easily tell which have ongoing support. You can always view every add-on of a particular type if you like, but there are so many that it can be hard to tell which are worth getting.
You can download the SuperRepo repository from http://srp.nu
Simply Caz doesn’t have the huge selection of music or programs that SuperRepo does, but it does contain a good range of TV add-ons, including Elysium, Kiss Anime and Planet MMA. There’s video content for everyone here, with quite a few sports and movie channels, as well as a few dedicated to kid’s cartoons.

Ares lacks the organisation of the other two repositories we’ve seen this far, but there’s still a good amount of content on it. Video content is grouped into several different add-ons by genre and you’ll need to install the Ares Indexer add-on to search for a specific title – it’s more for those times when you aren’t sure what you’d like to watch. On the plus side, it has everything from Kung Fu to cookery, so you should be able to find something you like.
The Ares Wizard repository can be downloaded from http://repo.ares-project.com/magic
This repository is mainly focused on movies and cartoons which makes it a fantastic choice if you need a way to keep the kids occupied. It only has a handful of audio and program add-ons, so if that’s what you’re after, you’d be better served by SuperRepo, but the add-ons it does have cover a fairly wide range of movie genres and time periods.
The Noobs and Nerds repository can be downloaded from http://nan.aftermathwizard.net/nanrepo/
TvAddons.ag’s current outage isn’t the end of the world. There are still plenty of repositories which can help you scratch your streaming itch, it just takes a bit of hunting to find them. Hopefully TvAddons are just performing updates or maintenance, but even if they don’t return, the repos above should keep you occupied for quite some time. If you know of a hidden gem repository, leave a comment below and let the world know!
