The long anticipated wait is finally over and we have the guys from the Colossus Repo to thank for this.  Bennu has finally been released and I am excited to share it with you.  For those of you who are new to Kodi one of the more popular add-ons for many years was called Phoenix.  It was a list of great playlists from movies, sports, TV, live sports, and various entertainment and it is back.  Some of the cast of characters are the same and others you might recognize from other projects but we are lucky to have these guys here as this add-on is packed with great content.

Home Screen

Bennu Main Menu There are even more sections that are just as action packed with content.  As I mentioned Bennu is ready to go and let’s take our hats off for the team at Colossus for putting in the time to resurrect this great add-on.  Rumor had it One242415 may have even shared some of his coveted playlists with Excalibur so some of the content may look familiar. Once again I would like to give a special shout out to the dev’s who have stepped to the plate and hit a home run picking up where the Phoenix team left off.  As always if you have any questions please pop over and visit us at Ares Forum.  We have staff members mostly around the clock to answer any of your Kodi or technology questions at Ares Forum.   The Ares forum also has apps in Play & Apple stores – keep in touch!!
