Before we Proceed
We highly recommend using a VPN when using Kodi. Kodi users have been known to receive copyright infringement notices for streaming movies, sports, and TV shows through various addons. If you would like to keep your streaming habits private, our recommendation is IPVanish - a complete privacy solution for Kodi users. It's also worth noting that purchasing a 12 month subscription will give you two months free.
How to Install Nemesis on Kodi
Nemesis is available via the Stream Army repository. Here’s a step-by-step view of everything you need to do to install the Stream Army repository and the Nemesis add-on.
Step 1: Download the Stream Army repository
Hop over to the Stream Army website and download repository.StreamArmy-5.1.zip.
Then, from Kodi’s main menu click add-ons from the side menu and select the box icon.
Next, click Install from zip file and open repository.StreamArmy-5.1.zip.
Step 2: Install Nemesis
Click Install from repository → Stream Army → Video add-ons → Nemesis and then select Install.
What’s So Great About Nemesis?
Nemesis is making quite a splash around the web. Shortly after Nemesis debuted a few weeks ago, indie developer @Trademark_TMB went as far as to call Nemesis’s creator @Nemzzy an “add-on god” on Twitter.
After checking out Nemesis myself, I can now see why @Trademark_TMB thinks so highly of Nemesis. No other add-on I’ve tried is able to filter out unreliable links. Additionally, Nemesis has so many features that it’s like using 10 add-ons at once.
After you pull up a stream using Nemesis, a dialog box pops up to ask whether or not the link you chose actually worked. If you select “no,” Nemesis adds the source of the link to a blacklist.
Nemesis’s blacklisting feature is innovative because it allows Nemesis to become more efficient over time. The more sources you blacklist, the less chance you’ll have of running into links that don’t work.
If you use Nemesis to access Kodi streams, you can “train” Kodi to pull up links to sites that you can actually use and disregard sites that are inaccessible in your local area.
Not all stream sources work equally well in all locations. If you use Nemesis to access streams, however, you can help Nemesis learn to ignore all the sites that you can’t access and favor the sites that are still free and clear.
Like Covenant, Nemesis can harvest on-demand links to TV shows and movies – but it can also grab links to live sports games, music files and audio books, too. Plus, Nemesis can play air traffic control and police scanner feeds. It even has special menus for kid-friendly shows and anime content.
How to Use the Nemesis Kodi Add-on
With so many features, Nemesis may be the only add-on you’ll ever need. Here’s a quick guide to how to use it.
How to find sports feeds
All of Nemesis’s sports related features can be found in the Sports Zone main menu.
The Infinity Sports menu has recordings of recent soccer, football, baseball and hockey games. It even has links to obscure sports like darts, poker, sailing and more. All the links I tried out via Infinity Sports worked.
Something seemed to be wrong with the Full Match Replays submenu of Sports Zone. When I tried clicking it, nothing happened.
How to search and browse movies
To search for movies on Nemesis, just pull up Movie Zone and click Search a Movie. Unfortunately, Nemesis doesn’t save your search queries.
Here’s what the Movie Zone menu of Nemesis looks like:
“Instant play” movies
If you don’t like waiting a few seconds for Nemesis to find a working video link, you may want to check out the M4u Movies section. Once you click a title via M4u Movies, you’re presented with a few different quality options (480p, 720p, etc.). After you pick your desired movie quality, the film begins to play immediately. The bad thing about the M4u menu is that its movie titles aren’t organized in any way. They’re just thrown together on a giant list.
Brand new movies
To look for new movies, click 123 Movies and then open the Cinema Movies menu.
Obscure foreign titles
Kodi developer LordJD has a list of foreign films called Lord JD Foreign Movies. To request additions to the list, reach out to LordJD via Twitter. (Nemesis’s other playlist maker is a programmer that goes by Nereus, but I wasn’t able to find him on social media.)
How to search for and browse TV shows
If you know the name of the show you want to watch, just open TV Zone and choose Search a Show.
Here’s what TV Zone looks like:
Live TV channels
A high percentage of Nemesis’s TV live feeds don’t work – but that’s the case with all Kodi add-ons.
The best place to begin your search for a working TV link is IPTV Provided by Matty. Matty is a developer that helps maintain Nemesis. He updates his links on a regular basis, so the links you will find through Matty’s section are less likely to fail. Matty groups his links into convenient menus like USA sports, UK TV, etc.
The live TV submenu of TV Zone also has TV channel links. There you’ll find hundreds of channels to choose from including English channels from the USA and the UK as well as international channels from around the world.
Note: Unless you live in the UK, you’ll need to switch on your VPN and connect to a UK server to get feeds of UK TV channels.
A simple TV guide
The TV Schedule submenu of TV Zone isn’t anything to write home about. All it does is pull up the names of the different TV shows that are currently playing. It doesn’t grab plot summaries or tell you which channel the title is playing on. However, if you click on a title via TV Schedule Nemesis will try to grab a working stream of it.
In the News Channels submenu of TV Zone, you’ll find local news affiliates from a handful of different American cities plus links to news programs from Russia, France and the UK.
Cameras from around the world
The CCTV submenu of TV Zone allows you to grab feeds of various CCTV cameras located in Albania, Austria, Belgium, the UK, Mexico, Peru, Kenya and several other countries.
Other interesting things you can do with Nemesis
If Stream Army keeps developing Nemesis, it could put Kodi builds and specialty add-ons out of business.
The Anime Zone section of Nemesis is huge, but it’s not easy to navigate it unless you know the specific name of the anime show or movie you want to watch. The interface doesn’t give you any genre categories to surf with – just an alphabetical list.
Listen to an audio book
You won’t find many recently published books though Nemesis’s Audio Books menu. However, you will find lots of classics.
Unlike the Anime Zone menu, the Audio Books menu offers many genre categories to choose from.
Listen to police scanners and air traffic controllers
Nemesis’s Scanner Zone is pretty awesome. You can either browse a list of cities to find a police scanner feed near you or check out the top 25 most popular police scanner feeds.
When I tuned into the Napa County police scanner feed, San Francisco area police were attempting to contain a fire.
Nemesis’s Air Traffic Control Zone was boring compared to the Scanner Zone, but you might want to check it out if you’re training to become a pilot.
Find programs and films for kids
The kids section of Nemesis caters to infants and young children. It contains a decent selection of shows and movies. It even has a series of YouTube videos designed to teach kids about first aid.
To find out if you can download something, hover over what you want to grab and press the C key on your keyboard (or the menu button on your remote) to bring up the contextual menu. If a download is available, Nemesis will allow you to save your content to the Nemesis Downloads menu.
Add a bookmark
You can’t download streams on Nemesis, but you can save them for later by using the “Add to Nemesis Favorites” option of the contextual menu. Once you add a bookmark, you can access it via the Nemesis Favorites.
Nemesis Vs. Other Popular Kodi Add-ons
“All-in-one” add-ons like Nemesis may represent the future of indie Kodi add-ons. Here’s how Nemesis stacks up against some of our favorite specialty add-ons.
Nemesis vs. Sportie and Pro Sport
Nemesis has all the features of the recently revamped Sportie add-on including Reddit integration and IPTV links. Before the new version of Sportie came out, Pro Sport was the only add-on we knew about that could mine Reddit for feeds. There’s really no need to use Sportie or Pro Sport anymore though, since Nemesis can do everything they can do just as well.
Nemesis vs. Covenant
Like the popular add-on Covenant, Nemesis can grab links to just about any TV show or movie ever made. However, Covenant doesn’t have any human-curated content playlists. Instead, Covenant relies on categories pulled from various internet movie databases around the web. Covenant integrates with movie databases too, but it also has lots of custom playlists (4k movies, 3D movies, box sets, etc.) that you can use to discover particular types of content.
What Do You Think About Nemesis?
Will Nemesis change the way add-ons are made – or will it follow the path of so many other add-ons that made a big initial splash and then faded away as time went on? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section.
