In this tutorial I will show you how to install the Galactus Kodi addon on Kodi 18 Leia and Kodi Krypton 17.6. The steps in this guide will help you install the addon on all Kodi supported devices including FireStick, Linux, Mac, Windows and more.
Galactus is a Kodi addon for watching movies and TV shows. This on-demand add-on offers you a wide range of video content. Whether you’re looking for the latest versions or old videos, Galactus has it all. The addon also pulls high quality links from various sources. You can integrate it into Real-Debrid for even better results.
The large content database with high quality streams and the consistent playback are some of the reasons why Galactus landed on our addons on the Best Kodi list. In addition, Galactus has a simple, easy-to-use layout that makes it easy to start streaming.
The screenshots shown here are from Kodi 18. However, I may have pointed out the differences to Kodi 17.6.
Update: This addon is currently not working because the Hellhounds repository is not available. For more add-ons, check out our list of the best Kodi addons.

Using Galactus Kodi Addon: A Brief Overview
Let’s take a look at the Galactus addon on Kodi. As mentioned in the previous section, the addon can be accessed by navigating to Kodi Home Screen> Add-Ons> Video Addons.
You can also run it from the Kodi home screen after clicking Add-Ons on the left and selecting Video Add-Ons on the right.
Galactus looks like your regular Kodi add-on for content on demand, including movies and TV shows. As you can see in the image below, the main screen has a pretty standard layout with clear categories.
You choose a category and you may find even more sub-categories. For example, Movies is further broken down into TMDB Now Playing, Movie Years, Action-Packed, etc. Click through the categories and sub-categories to find the list of video content.
Galactus is scraping multiple streaming links from various sources. You may also find several free 1080p links. However, if you sign up with Premium Real-Debrid, you are sure to get better quality links and a more buffer-free experience.
Galactus is a good quality Kodi addon with lots of video content including your favorite movies and TV episodes. It’s a simple addon with a simple interface for easy navigation. For faster navigation, you want to turn off metadata processing. However, I’ve found that even then, the navigation is a bit slower than other addons.
However, a very important positive point of the Galactus Kodi addon is that it plays almost all of the videos from its huge library. Some of the videos from the “Old Movies” section may not work, but generally they will stream well. You can also find several full HD, 1080p streams too. It might not be the best addon, but it’s well worth the chance.
