Before We Proceed
Goodfellas IPTV is a great addition to your Kodi streaming library. However, some Kodi streamers have received copyright notifications from their ISPs. Although this does not happen on every occasion, it can happen to anyone and does occur in several different countries.
The best route to keeping your streaming habits private is by using a virtual private network, or VPN service. We’ve tested several, and have landed on IPVanish as the best option for Kodi users. IPVanish focuses specifically on anonymity while employing different methods to help guarantee that your identity does not leak.

Limitations and Benefits of Goodfellas
As we stated in the intro, Goodfellas ranks as one of the best live TV streaming Kodi add-ons. In addition to its large number of television and movie streaming options, Goodfellas is also extremely easy to use. It may not have the extensively useful TV guide like what you’ll find with other services, but ultimately it doesn’t need it.
Just look at the interface:
The simple list breaks down the categories with a lot of options. The channel line-up is extremely large. It includes the most popular US-based cable channels as well as the most popular UK television stations.
The primary limitation for Goodfellas is that channels will occasionally stop working, seemingly for no reason. You may also need to install additional add-ons to access some of the channels. That said, the channel organization is extremely impressive on Goodfellas. The original Goodfellas add-on was ditched favor of version 2.0 a few months ago. Version 2.0 really upped the ante, making Goodfellas a much better competition for some of the other high-quality IPTV add-ons available for Kodi.
When you really dig into Goodfellas, you’ll find that the add-on has more to offer than you might find with almost all other add-ons. That includes a rather healthy offering for on-demand TV shows and Movies. Goodfellas actually borrows directly from some other popular Kodi add-ons like Specto and Primewire.
We did run into some issues trying to get some links and menus to load, however. For example, under the “TV Shows” option, we tried to load the “TV Shows” subfolder, only to get an error message. The 25/7 TV Shows subfolder loaded, and we were able to see some options there, but that one also resulted in error messages when we tried to load any of the videos.
Alongside the many options in Goodfellas are some channels that you likely aren’t going to find on any other add-on. Goodfellas tosses web cam aficionados a bone with a “Web Cams” section. And no, this is not the type of web cams you’re thinking about. These are CCTV-style web cams from across the world, showing street corners, bars, weather events, islands, and almost any random thing you can think of. These are literally publicly available web cams that whet the appetite for those that like to just see what’s going on in different places of the world. We loaded one up titled Intersection (HAVE NO CLUE WHERE) and that’s exactly what we got. We did note a Russian flag in the live stream next to a flag we couldn’t recognize, however.
There are other interesting streaming options you’re likely not going to find anywhere else as well. There’s even an “Arts/Crafts” section. Overall, much of what Goodfellas 2.0 offers really helps the image of both the add-on and Kodi in general. In a world where Kodi is consistently getting pinned for having non-functioning add-ons and add-ons that may be of some legally-questionable merit, Goodfellas 2.0 helps provide a proof-of-concept that Kodi add-ons can provide a very valuable user experience to just about anyone looking for some interesting and legal streaming diversions.
The latest Goodfellas main menu contains 25 different folders. Read on for a quick overview of each one.
This handy folder allows you to access your Goodfellas favorites. To add a stream or folder to your favorites, simply right click whatever you want to bookmark and choose Add to Add-on Favorites.
This search supposedly brings up links to popular TV channels, but when we tried it out it didn’t seem to work.
Free TV Channels
This folder contains IPTV links to Canadian, UK, USA and Spanish TV channels. As is the case with all live TV add-ons, many of the links don’t work – so you’ll need to be patient if you want to find a working online stream.
This section contains links to local TV broadcast stations from all of the US. If you don’t have a TV antenna and you want to grab local news feeds, this folder is worth a look.
This folder is very much like the Free TV Channels folder, only it’s caters to sports fans. Just pick the sport you want to watch and click around until you find a working IPTV feed.
As its name suggests, this folder contains links to movies. The subcategories we found in this folder were quite extensive, but we ran into a broken link when we tried to pull up a movie. Covenant is probably a more reliable source of movie links.
As soon as you try to open any links in this folder, Kodi asks whether or not you want to download Specto. Specto’s website dropped offline without warning several weeks back, so that may be why this part of Goodfellas didn’t work for us at all when we tried it out.
We didn’t have any luck with this folder, either. Whatever sources Goodfellas is using for movie streams appears to be offline.
This biography section of this folder links to one minute mini-bios of celebrities like Prince, JFK, Michael Jordan and others. Documentary subfolders include categories like History of Man, Science, Wild Life, Conspiracy and X Files.
This section contains links to audio book versions of literary classics. The audio newspaper subfolder timed out when we tried to open it up.
This section of Goodfellas contains links to virtual fireplace videos as well as music for yoga and meditation.
The Culinary folder contains the following subfolders: Tasty, Cooking With Jack Show, Molto Mario, Emeril Lagasse, (Accidently) Vegan TV, Laura In the Kitchen, Foody TV, Cookstream, Joy of Baking and A Bite of China.
Arts/Crafts contains a ton of subfolders that link to videos from around the web. Options include: WhatsUpMoms, Simple Home Art Decor Ideas, DazzleDIY, HooplaKidz How To, AS World, Arts and Crafts, SoCraftastic, StylEnrich, Red Ted Art, Awesome Ideas, Wood Worker, HandiWorks, JK Craft Ideas and DIY Paper Crafts.
This female-oriented folder links to video content from various fashion magazines, YouTube make-up guides, musicals, female comedians, health videos and more.
In the Outdoors folder you can find find videos about hunting, fishing, wildlife and outdoor cooking.
This folder may be under construction, because many of the submenus we tried failed to open. Check it out for war-related videos from VICE, history documentaries about wars, official videos from the US military and other military-related content.
Motor Headz subfolders include: Nascar, Eric the Car Guy, Auto Fetish Detail, Motor Trend Channel, Wrecks to Riches and DIY Auto Body and Paint.
Gamerz links to various YouTube gaming channels like Jacksepticeye, PewdiePie, Willyrex and others.
Hilariously, H3H3Productions appears in Goodfella’s “Vaping” channel alongside serious vaporizer review channels like Vape Club, Vaping with Twisted420 and others. Ethan of H3H3Productions famously spoofed vape culture in a 2016 parody video and racked up over 19 million views in the process.
This channel links to infamous YouTube channels like Alex Jones, The Amazing Atheist, DramaAlert and others.
The music that you’ll find in Goodfellas’ music folder is limited to just a few genres: country, rock, EDM, classical, old school, Latino, club/dance music and pop.
This folder links to a ton of free workout-related YouTube channels. Options here include Fitness Blender, Yoga Channel, ATHLEAN-X, Bikini Model Fitness and more.
You won’t find “cam girls” in this folder, but what you do get is interesting random live feeds from cameras around the planet. Check it out if you want to know what’s cooking in Tusto Pizza’s kitchen. In addition to feeds of bars and restaurants, there are also live broadcasts of animals doing their thing in various zoos.
This folder is hard to figure out because the people who put it together go by various code names, but it seems to be a somewhat random collection of Kodi-related playlists. Each playlist contains a set of video tutorials.
