UPDATE January 2, 2019:
The Placenta Kodi addon is back and just as great as ever. This Blamo developed descendant of the great Kodi Genesis and Exodus line of code now hails from the FreeWorld repository. The following install article has been updated to provide you with easy access to this great free TV and movie streaming Kodi addon.
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 10:
Mr. Blamo, curator to the Blamo repository and developer of many great Kodi addons in 2018, closed the Blamo Repo down and took the repository offline. With the Blamo repo down, updates to the great Neptune Rising, Placenta, Death Streams, Chappa'ai, Wraith, or Aragon Live addons will cease unless taken up by another developer.
In a tweet only hours ago, @Daddy_Blamo had this to say to his more than 8600 followers:
“Repo And Github Gone any Githubs saying blamo wont be me… as a Developer i’m done for good.”
This is terrible news to Kodi users worldwide. The Blamo Repo has been installed in thousands of Kodi entertainment centers over the past several months.
NOTICE: You can find the Placenta Kodi addon within the Wilson Magicality Repository at https://wilsonmagic.github.io/repo/ for now. This repo also has a copy of Neptune Rising along with an updated fork of Neptune Rising called Magicality. To help ease the blow further, we present to you the new Tsunami OG, found to be one of the best all-around working Kodi addons coming along in ages. Even the live sports streaming presented with a channel guide is in fantastic shape. For your viewing pleasure, we also suggest the latest update to the great Exodus Kodi addon found in the KodiBae repo. These should take care of your streaming entertainment needs for now. Give them a try and let us know what you think!

Placenta on Kodi for Free Movies & TV Shows
As one of the best Covenant alternatives available for September 2018, Placenta will make you happy to use Kodi again if you liked the Covenant, Exodus, or Genesis addons. This fantastic Kodi addon has familiar layout and navigation for users of Genesis and Exodus. If you find Covenant not working, it’s a great replacement. It also provides access to more high-quality movies and TV shows than any of its predecessors ever did. Coming from the developer Muad’Dib, you can find this great addon currently making its home in the Freeworld Repository. Learn how to install Placenta on Kodi the easiest way in this guide.
A direct fork of Covenant, Placenta shares much with the easiest to use and most popular Kodi TV addons of all time. Similar to its siblings Neptune Rising and Genesis Reborn, this addon springs from the same beautiful Lambda TV addon codebase. Its line of predecessors contains the greatest Kodi third-party TV addons ever. Among these, Exodus probably holds title as the most popular Kodi TV addon of all time, and its predecessor Genesis from which this wonderful line of code began. If you enjoy Placenta, you may also wish to check out the recently released forks of Genesis and Poseidon. Named Genesis Reborn and Neptune Rising, I think you’ll really like them.
Info for Advanced Kodi TV Addon Installers
If comfortable installing Kodi TV addons, then you probably only need the URL for Placenta’s home repository. You’ll find the Placenta alternative to the Covenant Kodi addon within the Freeworld Repo found at http://legionworldtv.com/zips/.
Required Before Install of ANY Kodi Third-Party TV Addon
Beginning with the release of Kodi 17 Krypton, the XBMC Foundation has required a setting adjustment before allowing third-party addon installation. If you’ve not done so already, follow our Enable Unknown Sources guide to making Kodi ready for the installation of unofficial TV addons. Without this system setting for Kodi Krypton or newer turned on, Kodi won’t recognize the Freeworld repo source URL as valid.
The following illustrated guide to installing this great Covenant alternative uses the Estuary skin, though you’ll see Estouchy represented as well. If using a custom Kodi build or skin, you may wish to re-enable the default skin (Estuary) to follow along. All of the images used in this guide to illustrate the installation steps use the Estuary skin, Kodi’s default skin since the release of Kodi 17 Krypton. Estuary provides access to any and all available elements. Many custom skins hide features in a somewhat misguided attempt to simplify the user interface. There is much that could be changed for the better with the user interface, but hiding features so the user has no access isn’t one of them. That’s just my opinion, though.
