Tamil Movies, Shows on Kodi: Best Tamil Add-ons to Watch in 2018

With the Kodi media centre software you can watch content from your computer in a home entertainment-style environment. But even better than that is the add-ons you can find which extend Kodi’s functionality to include new features. Today we’re going to take a look at some of the best Kodi add-ons for Tamil language speakers.

Whether you want to watch the newest Tamil TV dramas or enjoy some classic films in the Tamil language, these add-ons will give you plenty of material to watch. Some of them even include live streams, so you can watch TV as it is broadcast. Read on for more information about the best Tamil Kodi add-ons as well as instructions on how to install each one.

Before Streaming, Get a VPN

Before we get to installing and using the add-ons, let’s take a moment to talk about security. Kodi is completely legal to use, but some of its third-party add-ons nevertheless grant users access to restricted content. As such, ISPs and copyright holders have begun to crack down on Kodi, and may send you warnings and notices even if you’re playing by the rules. It’s not fair, but you can protect yourself from this liability with a VPN.

There are many VPNs to choose from, but we’re here to help you narrow down the field to just a single best option. We came to this decision by evaluating each service by the following criteria:

  • Fast connection speed
  • Strong privacy provisions
  • Numerous proxy servers available
  • Available on many devices
  • No restrictions on traffic types or bandwidth

We Recommend IPVanish for Kodi Users

The best VPN for Kodi users is undoubtedly IPVanish. We love having 256-bit AES encryption, over 40,000 shared IP addresses, DNS leak protection and an automatic kill available switch to keep us safe. To boot, IPVanish maintains absolutely zero logs of user activity, showing that your privacy is respected and prioritized. There are no restrictions on bandwidth, and as your traffic is not monitored, you’ll never be blocked from using torrent or P2P protocols like with some VPNs. Did we mention the connection speed is lightning fast, even when streaming HD and 4K? This is in large part due to the wide availability of proxy servers (850 in 60 countries), which allows you to pick your best connection. Finally, IPVanish has lightweight, dedicated application software available for just about any device you could want to stream from, including the Amazon Fire TV stick.

We have a special offer for you that’s exclusive to Addictive Tips readers! If you’d like to try out IPVanish for yourself, you can get a huge 60% discount on the yearly plan, bringing the cost down to just $4.87 per month. There’s also a seven-day money-back guarantee, meaning that you can purchase with confidence.
