In this article, I will guide you on how to install the Kodi Patriot addon on FireStick. The installation guide will work on all Kodi-supported devices, including Amazon FireStick, FireStick Lite, FireStick 4K, FireStick 4K Max, Fire TV Cube, iOS & Android, Windows PC, Mac, Android TV boxes, and other Kodi devices.
What Is Patriot Addon?
Patriot is a well-equipped video streaming addon. It lets you watch a ton of content across multiple categories. The categories include movies, TV Shows, documentaries, comedy, kids’ shows, music, and art movies. Each category is filled with content, so you don’t have to go anywhere else.
Patriot deploys sophisticated scrapers to bring the best content. Like other addons, Patriot doesn’t host its content. Instead, it scrapes from a slew of compatible host websites. In addition, Patriot supports Real Debrid integration. In other words, you only get access to top-quality links. Furthermore, Trakt integration helps keep a tab on TV shows and movies you have already watched.
Overall, the Patriot is a well-equipped addon that offers a superior viewing experience.
Attention KODI Users: Read before you continue
Kodi is an excellent platform for streaming movies, TV shows, and sports, but it's important to remember that streaming copyrighted content can get you into legal trouble. Your IP address 220.127.116.11 is exposed to everyone. You should use a reliable Kodi VPN while streaming to protect yourself online. A VPN will keep your streaming activities private and bypass government surveillance and geo-restrictions.
I use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure Kodi VPN out there. It's easy to install on any device, including Amazon FireStick. Plus, it offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, and if you sign up for an annual plan, you get 3 extra months free.
Is Patriot Addon Safe?
It is not uncommon for attackers to deploy malware in the guise of the Kodi addon. This is the reason I constantly scan repository links using an anti-virus. I scanned the repository with the Virus total. Thankfully, VirusTotal didn’t find any viruses or malware. Now let us go ahead and install the Patriot Kodi addon.
Is Patriot Addon Legal?
One of the first questions that pop into your mind is whether or not Patriot is legal. Especially since Patriot is not available in Kodi’s official repository, you install it after tweaking a security Setting of Kodi (more on that later).
Patriot is part of the Narcacist repository. The addon in itself is not illegal. However, FireStickHow can’t verify the entire content library. The addon fetches video streams from unverified providers who may not have secured distribution licenses from the copyright holders. Streaming videos from such providers could drag you into legal trouble.
You can easily avoid legal hassles by restricting yourself to the content in the public domain. However, if you are unsure of the distinction, always use ExpressVPN with the Patriot addon to encrypt and hide your streaming activities.
Patriot Addon Best Features?
Here are some of the salient features of the addon:
- Patriot is a simple-to-use video addon with tons of content to choose from.
- The addon offers Real Debrid, Premiuize, All-Debrid, and Trakt integration. I suggest signing up for Real-Debrid before installing Patriot.
- Furthermore, the Whats-New section lists the latest content in one place.
- Vast content library with tons of videos.
How to Install the Patriot Kodi Addon

It looks like you are all set to start watching your favorite content. However, do not forget that all your streaming activities and online identity are unprotected and exposed to your Government and your ISP. In addition, streaming with third-party services may cause legal trouble.
Thankfully, you can easily protect yourself and go invisible from your Government and ISP by using a VPN. Whenever I stream with Kodi, I always connect to ExpressVPN and recommend the same to you.
ExpressVPN is the fastest and the most streaming-friendly VPN. It is also the most secure VPN.
With ExpressVPN, you get a 30-day money-back guarantee as well. So if you do not like the service (I don't see why), you will get a full refund within 30 days.
Please remember that we encourage you to use a VPN to maintain your privacy. We do not condone breaking copyright laws.
Before you start using Kodi for streaming, here is how you can protect yourself with ExpressVPN:
Step 1: Sign up for ExpressVPN Here
Step 2: Download ExpressVPN on your device by clicking HERE
Step 3: Open the ExpressVPN app on your device. Sign in with your account. Click the connect/power button to connect to the VPN
Great! You have successfully secured yourself with the best Kodi VPN.
How to Use Patriot Addon
Thankfully, Patriot is relatively simple to use. Open Patriot by going to Kodi’s home screen. Scroll down and select Add-ons from the left menu. You should see Patriot listed on the right menu. Click the icon to launch Patriot.
Patriot home screen lists movies and TV shows based on different categories. It includes movies, TV shows, kids, and more.
The search feature on Patriot is robust and accurate. It is beneficial in content discovery. For instance, you can stream using Search History, Last Link Played, and Continue Watching. In addition, I liked how Patriot has nested subcategories within primary categories. It helps fine-tune your search. Here’s an example- The movies section is further divided into Popular Movies, Movies in Theatres, Genre, and Studio Search.
Patriot offers a slew of settings aimed at enhancing the viewing experience. It lets you select cache size, open collection feature, display lock, and an adult filter. Parents can use the adult feature to safeguard kids from age-inappropriate content. The silver lining is that you get Trakt and Debrid accounts as well.
How to Integrate Patriot with Trakt
We have a sea of content to choose from in the current age. It is always good to have more choices. However, it becomes difficult to track the content you have already watched. trakt.tv is a super helpful service that helps you track watched content across multiple devices and platforms. You need to sign up for a trakt.tv account first. Once done, here’s how you can link it with Patriot.
1. Open Patriot Settings.
2. Select Patriot Trakt Account from the left side menu.
3. Toggle on Patriot Trakt Progress.
4. Prompt appears asking for Trakt authentication confirmation. Select Yes.
5. You will get an authentication code. Note it down.
6. Head over to https://trakt.tv/activate on your laptop browser.
7. log in to your Trakt account by following the onscreen instructions.
Steps to Integrate Patriot with Real Debrid
Real Debrid offers premium links for movies and TV Shows. Once you sign-up for Real Debrid, you can integrate with multiple Kodi addons. Patriot supports Real-Debrid integration. It has a separate section listing movies and TV shows that don’t require debris. However, Real-Debrid integration is needed for watching a majority of content. Follow the steps below to integrate Patriot with Real Debrid.
1. Head over to Patriot Settings.
2. Select Patriot Debrid from the left menu.
3. Toggle on Patriot Enable Debrid services.
4. Ensure Patriot Choose debrid service is showing Real-Debrid. If not, choose the same from the drop-down menu.
5. Click Patriot Re-auth Real-Debrid.
6. Note down the authentication code shown on the screen.
7. Open https://real-debrid.com/device on your PC browser.
8. Enter the code and click continue. Now enter your debrid credentials and complete the integration.
You can rely on Patriot for a vast range of content. In this guide, I have shown how to install Patriot on FireStick. The installation steps largely remain the same for all devices that support Kodi. Please let us know in the comments below if you have any thoughts or suggestions.
