This guide will teach us how to install the GAIA Kodi add-on. Like Magic Dragon, TheOath, and TheCrew Kodi add-ons, GAIA is also a popular Kodi add-on in 2023. GAIA add-on is known for its premium look and user-friendly interface. Moreover, you must integrate Trakt or Real Debrid to work with GAIA Addon. When you integrate Real-Debrid with the GAIA add-on, you can stream HD videos on Kodi.

Once you install the GAIA Kodi add-on, you must install many added Kodi add-ons. The additional add-ons include Orion, URLResolver, Studio Icons, Addon Signals, Kodi Six, Youtube-dl control, Kodi65 Library, Plugin routing, ExtendInfo Script, etc.

As said earlier, the GAIA Kodi add-on has a clean and easy-to-navigate user interface. In addition, GAIA Addons contain various options, viz. Promotion, Movies, Shows, Docus, Shorts, Kids, Search, Tools, etc.

GAIA is a fork of Bubbles add-on and offers unlimited streaming of Movies, Videos, TV Shows, etc. Let’s start with the GAIA Add-on Installation process.

Attention, Cord-cutters!

I want to warn you that whatever you stream online is visible to the Government, ISPs, and Third Parties. Following are some of your details:-

IP Address:
Location: Virginia US
ISP: AS14618 Amazon.com, Inc.

You must be aware that streaming copyrighted content without a license is illegal and may land you in legal trouble.

I urge you to comply with the rules and regulations in your country, but what if you land up streaming illegal content unintentionally?

No worries, there is a foolproof way.

Hence, I suggest using the most secure VPN, i.e., ExpressVPN, which has military-grade encryption. In addition, ExpressVPN enables buffering-free streaming, hides your IP address, Location, and bypasses the geo-restrictions and bandwidth throttling.
