M.E.T.V is a popular Kodi addon that provides access to a wide variety of movies, TV shows, live sports, and more. In this comprehensive guide, I‘ll walk you through how to safely install and use M.E.T.V on your Amazon Firestick, Fire TV, Android TV box, or other Kodi device.
Overview of M.E.T.V Kodi Addon
M.E.T.V stands for Movies, Entertainment, TV. As the name suggests, it offers a ton of video content in an easy to navigate interface.
Some of the main features and categories include:
Latest Movies – A wide selection of recently released films.
TV Shows – Browse popular shows by genre or search for specific titles.
Sports – Live streams and replays of sporting events like NFL, NBA, MLB.
Kids – Cartoons, family movies and TV shows.

24/7 Channels – Always-on live streams of TV networks.
Radio – Listen to music and talk radio stations.
The addon scrapes links from various online sources and also has integration with Real-Debrid for high-quality streams. The content is primarily free to access but a Real-Debrid account unlocks better quality sources.
Overall, M.E.T.V offers an exceptional streaming experience and is one of the top video addons available for Kodi right now in terms of breadth and depth of content.
Is M.E.T.V Kodi Addon Safe to Use?
Whenever installing third-party addons outside of the official Kodi repository, it‘s important to be cautious. M.E.T.V is not an "official" addon which means the code and sources have not been audited by the Kodi team.
That said, I scanned the repository URL using VirusTotal and it came back clean without any detections:
The addon also does not require entering any sensitive information during setup. Overall, it appears to be safe from a malware perspective based on current analysis.
However, there are a few general precautions I recommend when using addons like M.E.T.V:
Use a VPN – This will anonymize your streaming activity and prevent your ISP from seeing what you access. I recommend Surfshark VPN.
Be careful of "free" content – Much of the video content may be copyrighted material. Stick to free, legal sources.
Limit personal info access – Be selective when allowing unknown addons access to your data.
With those tips in mind, let‘s move on to the installation process.

M.E.T.V Addon Features and User Guide
Now that you have M.E.T.V installed, let‘s briefly go over how to use it and some of the key features.
The main sections at the top include:

Within Movies and TV shows are subcategories like New Releases, Popular, Genres, and more.
Live TV contains many 24/7 streaming channels across movies, news, sports, music, and general entertainment.

When you select a movie, show episode, or live stream, it will scrape and display available sources to play. I recommend using "Cached torrents only" if you have Real-Debrid authorized.
In my experience, links played quickly and streams were good quality. Having a fast internet connection and Real-Debrid makes a significant difference.
Take some time to explore all that M.E.T.V has to offer. It really is one of the most robust Kodi addons available right now.
Is M.E.T.V Kodi Addon Legal?
The legality of Kodi addons like M.E.T.V is a complicated gray area. The addon itself is just an indexing tool that aggregates links – it does not host any content. However, many of those links point to pirated sources.
The M.E.T.V developers do not have licensing deals with movie studios and TV networks. So while the addon itself may be legal, streaming certain copyright-protected content through it would be illegal.
As an end user, it is your responsibility to avoid copyright infringement. Stick to free, legal sources of video content through addons like M.E.T.V.
Use official addons from the Kodi repository for verified legal sources.
Check sites like YouTube, Tubi, Pluto TV, Crackle, and other free streaming services for movies and shows.
Be careful accessing pirated live sports and PPV events.
If you see a recent Hollywood blockbuster or episode from a current TV season, it is most likely an illegal stream.
Use a VPN to keep your activity private and secure.
In short, proceed at your own risk when installing third-party Kodi addons. Some content sources may be illegal, while others are perfectly legitimate.
