BEFORE WE PROCEED
Goodfellas is a must have in your Kodi streaming library. However, some Kodi streamers have received copyright notifications from their ISPs. Although this does not happen on every occasion, it can happen to anyone and does occur in several different countries.
The only way to keep your activity in the web private is to have streaming via VPN service. We’ve tested several, and have landed on as the best option for Kodi users. IPVanish focuses specifically on anonymity while employing different methods to help guarantee that your identity does not leak.

LIMITATIONS AND BENEFITS OF GOODFELLAS
We have mentioned previously that Goodfellas app is quite competitve in comparison with other live TV streaming Kodi add-ons. This relates to more than just the large number of television and movie streaming options. The add-on is also extremely easy to use. It may not have the extensively useful TV guide like what you’ll find with other services, but ultimately it doesn’t need it.
Just look at the interface:
A lot of options are settled in the menu list. Some of the categories are actually a bit too specific. That includes the “Vaping” section (composed of videos about vaping). Nevertheless, the channel line-up is extremely large. It includes the most popular US-based cable channels (SyFy, HGTV, ESPN, HBO, etc.) as well as the most popular UK television stations (Sky, Sky movie channels, BBC stations).
The main issue about Goodfellas is that there is always a chance that channels will stop working, seemingly for no reason. You may also need to install additional add-ons to access some of the channels. That said, the channel organization is extremely impressive on Goodfellas. The original Goodfellas addonwas ditched favor of version 2.0 a few months ago. Version 2.0 really upped the ante, making Goodfellas a much better competition for some of the other high-quality IPTV App available for Kodi.
When you get used to Goodfellas, you will see that the addon has a lot to offer and it is much more than other app may offer. That includes a rather healthy offering for on-demand TV shows and Movies. On this end, Goodfellas actually borrows directly from some other popular Kodi App like Specto and Primewire.
We have faced some problems while trying to download the app. For example, under the “TV Shows” option, we tried to load the “TV Shows” subfolder, only to get an error message. The 25/7 TV Shows subfolder loaded, and we were able to see some options there, but that one also resulted in error messages when we tried to load any of the videos.
The Goodfellas allows you to enjoy some streams and channels that no other addon can provide you with. Goodfellas tosses web cam aficionados a bone with a “Web Cams” section. And no, this is not the type of web cams you’re thinking about. These are CCTV-style web cams from across the world, showing street corners, bars, weather evnts, islands, and almost any random thing you can think of. These are literally publicaly available web cams that whet the appetite for those that like to just see what’s going on in different places of the world. We loaded one up titled Intersection (HAVE NO CLUE WHERE) and that’s exactly what we got. We did note a Russian flag in the live stream next toa flag we couldn’t recognize, however.
It is even not a nearly full list of streaming options that you can use with Goodfellas. There’s even an “Arts/Crafts” section. Overall, much of what Goodfellas 2.0 offers really helps theimage of both the addon and Kodi in general. In a world where Kodi is consistently getting pinned forhaving non-functioning App and App that may be of some legally-questionable merit, Goodfellas 2.0helps provide a proof-of-concept that Kodi App can provide a very valuable user experience to just about anyone looking for some interesting and legal streaming diversions.
