UPDATE SEPTEMBER 28:
Team Illuminati have closed down their repository, taking the relatively new Insomniac Kodi addon down as well. Even the Apocalyptic Builds Repo, used as a temporary backup for some Illuminati addons including Insomniac, has shut down in this round of "anti-piracy" cease and desist letters. Illuminati told their followers about this a few hours before killing the Illuminati repo by pulling it offline. With the Illuminati repo down, there will be no more updates to Insomnia, The Underdog, or any other addon developed and hosted by Illuminati. You will very soon find The Underdog not working.
Tweeting a few days ago to the 4638 followers they've quickly built up, @illuminati_xyz had this to say:
“Sorry guys our entire team got hit with ACE letters today so we’re leaving twitter,this group closes tomorrow am thanks for your support all”
After the take-down of the Blamo Repo recently, this doesn't come as a great surprise. Any large gathering of Kodi third-party developers such as Team Illuminati is going to quickly attract the attention of ACE (Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment). This anti-piracy coalition has been taking swings at the Kodi community since their creation.
In the wake of this on-going disaster, we suggest installing the latest update of the great Exodus Kodi addon from KodiBae repo. This will easily take care of all your streaming entertainment. Also, try the new Tsunami OG Kodi all-in-one add-on, which seems to be one of the best addons to come along recently. From its great classic movie selection to live streaming sports channels, Tsunami OG is a top-notch must-have.

Insomniac Kodi Addon Features
With Insomniac instant live streams and easy to navigate interface, you’ll save precious time and be able to quickly watch free TV shows and movies. Just choose from a list of nicely organized channels that stream around the clock. Unlike other Kodi addons, Insomniac does not offer on-demand videos. You will not be picking individual movie titles or TV show episodes with this addon.
KodiInsomniac Addon Channel Categories
- 24/7 TV Shows As the name implies, this category is full of channels providing around the clock streaming TV shows. The number of entries varies, but there are currently 94 channels, each playing different TV shows or cartoons. Clicking on any linked channel will start a live stream of episodes for the title selected. You’ll find anything from “3rd Rock from the Sun”” and “Adult Swim” to “X Files” and “Z Nation” in this comprehensive TV channels listing.
- Illuminati_XYZ Named after the Twitter username of the Insomniac addon home repo, this section provides a list of specific TV channels. Some of the included channels are ABC, CBS, Discovery Channel, ESPN, Fox News, NBC, Nickelodeon, SyFy, The CW, TLC, and even WWOR-TV. Of course, there are many more streaming channels included in Insomniac.
- Movies This is currently a list of 19 movie genres and box sets to choose from, though the number of channels varies (has gone up since last we checked). All of these movie channels also provide live-streams. Once more, you pick your preferred channel and streaming begins instantly. With channels such as Action, Animation, Christmas, and even Harry Potter, Star Wars, or Studio Ghibli, you’re sure to find something to watch. You may also just take a chance and encounter something unique and delightful within the Random Movies channel.
Gain Full Access to All Streams
ISP (Internet Service Providers) are engaged in the monitoring and blocking of Kodi addons. To avoid ISP infringement notices, throttling down of your bandwidth, interruptions to your internet service, and worse, we highly recommend the use of a top-tier VPN (Virtual Private Network). Using a VPN while streaming allows private access to all Kodi addons.
Surfshark VPN unblocks all online censorship and other restrictions while hiding your location. My True Media is offering an exclusive 81% discount for a limited time only. Try Surfshark VPN without risk by taking advantage of their 30-day money back guarantee.
Enjoy the Insomniac Addon and the Bounty of Team Illuminati
While Insomniac brings 24/7 non-stop streaming (great for sleepless nights), you may also want other options. If you want more control over what you watch, check out some great on-demand video addons. We have a few interesting suggestions for you in our Best Kodi Addons article. Also, give the Team Illuminati repo an install when it comes back up and check out all that it has to offer. Enjoy and…
May your streams never run dry!
