So let‘s get started…

What is the Nightwing Kodi Addon?

Nightwing is one of the most popular on-demand video addons for Kodi right now. It provides free access to a huge library of movies, TV shows, documentaries, kids content, and more.

Some of the stand-out features of Nightwing include:

Huge content library – Over 3,500 movies and 700 TV shows available, with more added daily. New content is constantly updated.

High quality streams – Many 1080p HD sources, especially with Real-Debrid. Minimal buffering for smooth streaming.

Easy navigation – Intuitive categories and menus make finding content a breeze. Great for Kodi beginners.

Trakt integration – Sync your watching history and playlists across devices.

Multiple stream sources – Movies and shows offer 10+ stream links to choose from.

Familiar skin – User interface resembles Netflix for comfort and ease of use.

Of course, no addon is perfect. Here are a couple downsides of Nightwing to note:

Potential scrapers down – Links rely on various scrapers, some may stop working.

No real uploader info – Hard to verify source/safety of each stream link.

But the pros definitely outweigh the cons in terms of features and content variety. Overall, Nightwing is one of my top recommendations for anyone looking to watch free movies, shows, and more on Kodi 19 Matrix.

Next, let‘s talk about whether it‘s safe and legal to use.

Is Nightwing Kodi Addon Safe and Legal?

Whenever installing third-party addons outside of the official Kodi repository, it‘s normal to have safety and legal concerns.

Here‘s what you need to know:

Is Nightwing Safe to Use?

  • I scanned the Nightwing repository URL on VirusTotal and it came back clean, with no malware detected.

  • However, there is always inherent risk when adding addons from unknown developers. Make sure to use a VPN for enhanced privacy and security when streaming.

Is Nightwing Legal?

  • The Nightwing addon itself is perfectly legal to install and use.

  • However, some of the free movie and TV streams it provides access to may be illegally hosted copyrighted content. Accessing unauthorized copyrighted material is technically against the law.

  • Use your best judgement when streaming. There are also many legal public domain movies available that pose no legal issues.

To stay on the safe side when using addons like Nightwing, I highly recommend using a premium VPN like IPVanish or ExpressVPN. This will encrypt all of your Kodi streaming activity and allow you to access geo-restricted content.

Now, let‘s get into how to install Nightwing on your device!

  • Windows, Mac, Linux computers
  • And more

I‘ll be demonstrating the install on a Firestick 4K, but the process is the same across all platforms.
