If you are looking for a new Kodi add-on for free video streaming or an alternative to your existing one, then Phoenix Rises is the add-on for you. Not only it offers a vast library of top-rated movies and TV shows but also live TV channels, kids, and PPV sports content. You get all of this without cashing out on ridiculous subscription plans.
