Well, I must admit that I came across something I never anticipated from an underrated Kodi addon. Going through DejaVu repo addons, I came across Dracarys Kodi addons and decided to check them. Before I move on to the method to install Dracarys Kodi addon I must go through its pros and cons with some unexpected bonus streaming links.
Why Install Dracarys Kodi Addon?
On paper, Dracarys looks like a sports addon, and its developers meant it by the way. They created a Sports Devil fork but ended up with something amazing especially for streamers searching for a comprehensive list of US Live TV channels. The addon interface is extremely simple. The home page serves with just one button (Live Sports). It further takes you to the following screen:
Disappointing Live Sports Links
Live TV, Roja Direct, and Sports Bay are the categories with tricky live sports links and a schedule of upcoming matches covering a bunch of sports including soccer, cricket, golf, basketball, baseball, and more. However, these free links don’t always work.
Unexpectedly Amazing US Live TV
The US TV Go category takes you to a list of around 90 US TV Channels. I decided to post this installation method for just one reason – in addition to sports, this category offers Live TV channels covering entertainment, news, business updates, cartoons and animation, movies, adventure, history, and even Do It Yourself (DIY). If you had been looking for a working Live TV Kodi addon then you must install Dracarays Kodi addon.
The channel list includes some big names such as History, Discovery, Fox Network, ESPN, HBO, Hallmark Movies, WWE Network, ABC, and CNN. I wasn’t convinced until I played them all one by one to check streaming speed and quality and I was utterly surprised, they all worked better than I normally expect from a free third-party addon.

Safe Anonymous Streaming with Shellfire VPN
Not only speed, but privacy is highly important when you are streaming on any platform, including Kodi. Most popular Kodi addons come from third-party developers. They often rely on free scrapers, which access risky and vulnerable servers where your personal information stays at risk.
Shellfire VPN is my favorite VPN service for various reasons. It now has 250,000 users and the number continues to increase. Its servers are operational in 37 countries covering 6 continents. Shellfire VPN is a German-based VPN service and it is compatible with Android, iOS, and Windows Operating Systems.
Shellfire VPN is one of the best options you can use today to get rid of speed throttling and it offers unlimited speed with 256k encryption. During the COVID-19 spread, the pressure on the bandwidth has significantly increased in most regions. However, VPN servers enable your internet connection to escape the bandwidth restrictions imposed by the local Internet Service Providers. Hence you can optimize the streaming speed by using the VPN service.
· Anonymity and Unblocking Censorship
These days, copyright violations are dealt with in particular and Kodi or the addon developers don’t take responsibility in the case of violation. However, you can easily stream anonymously with Shellfire VPN. Moreover, different regions offer different content so you often face censorship. With its servers in 37 countries (US and UK included), Shellfire VPN lets you bypass censorship by selecting the most suitable server. Thanks to its Zero-Log policy, servers of Shellfire VPN do not store your personal information or browsing history.
Hackers mostly make successful attempts through public networks, e.g., WiFi connections at crowded places. With its 256kb end-to-end encryption, you can securely use the internet even via public WiFi. The encryption secures your activities and data from ISPs, agencies, and hackers.
