The Bennu Kodi video addon takes over after Phoenix, one of the most popular third-party Kodi add-ons of all time, closed up shop back in June. Having Phoenix installed on the Firestick seemed both poetic and essential. Much as the phoenix of ancient Greek mythology arose from ashes into new life, the Phoenix Kodi add-on has been reborn as Bennu (aptly named after the ancient Egyptian diety of rebirth).

From Phoenix is Reborn the Bennu Kodi Add-on

Follow along as we guide you to install the Bennu Kodi add-on onto your Firestick, FireTV, PC, Raspberry Pi, or any other device you may have Kodi installed on. This playlist Kodi add-on aggregates content from many sources, which makes it easier to find what you’re looking for. First of all, note I only said easier. If I had actually said it was easy, then I would be lying.

You may have noticed my mention of Bennu in a few previous articles lately. Its menu system really leaves a lot to be desired. There is a ton of content, but it is extremely haphazard in its organization. You will find many gems if you have the patience. You just have to give it a try and see how you feel about it.

Kodi Security warning: Hide your location (Ashburn, VA) and IP address (54.80.236.48) now.

Most of the content made available through the Bennu Kodi add-on is not properly licensed. This can make using this third party add-on a bit of a gamble if you’re not protecting yourself with a VPN.

Be Aware of the Risks

Bennu can be a significant security risk. It legally distributes very little of its content, being predominantly made up of pirated streams. Phoenix itself was taken down in an attempt to avoid litigation. As a third party add-on, Bennu is also significantly more vulnerable to unscrupulous hackers than the official add-ons. Previous to using any Kodi 3rd party addon, getting access to a high quality VPN to retain your anonymity and protect your data is exceptionally important. The links provided here will net you 60% off of a truly unequaled VPN – IPVanish!

Bennu Kodi Add-on Info for Advanced Users

You’ll find the Bennu Kodi add-on within the Colossus repository, which itself is located in the Ares repository at http://ares-repo.eu.

What It All Boils Down To

The hugely popular Phoenix Kodi video add-on dropped from circulation following threats of litigation because of that fact. As a result of its fan base growing daily, it is possible that Bennu may follow suit at any time. Enjoy it while you can–if you can.
