Release BB will be familiar to those who have used Kodi for a few years. It was originally part of a repository run by Mr. Entertainment first released in 2016. However, in mid-2017 Mr. Entertainment left the scene and the add on fell into darkness. Fast forward to 3 months ago and Release BBN has returned with a vengeance under a new team and name.
What is Kodi?
Kodi is free to download piece of open source software which can turn your TV in an all in one media and entertainment center. First developed in 2002 Kodi has become one of the leading media players in the world and has a custom-designed 10-foot user interface which mean it can effectively scale add ons and media content to fit any TV.
Kodi itself is free and legal, but also hosts thousands of add ons which allow you to access almost any Live TV, TV Shows, and Films as soon as they are released.
What is an Add On?
Add ons are 3rd party applications that are accessible through Kodi but neither endorsed nor hosted by them.
They can be downloaded individually or as part of a large repository (a collection of add ons ) or a build ( a collection of repositories which may also include different skins which change the UI and visual look of your Kodi software)
What is Release BB
Release BB is pretty unique in its approach to displaying content for tv shows and films. When a film or tv show is first released, the people who make this happen are called scene release groups. They put together higher quality links and audio than amateur uploaders. These links tend to be of higher quality, but the files are bigger and slower to stream.
Release BB brings together links from these cut scene groups and is best used alongside Real Debrid. Real Debrid is a premium hosting service that connects to you to paid host servers and premium links, which are high quality, life and quick to download.
The two in combination mean you get the best titles, with the best quality.

Is It Safe To Use?
Release BB has elicited some chatter on Reddit and there seems to be a lively support group. The add on has been updated as recently as July 2019, so the developer is obviously fired up. Always download straight from the developer’s link which is safe.
We urge caution when downloading add ons not from the developer’s link, as this may contain malware or viruses. We recommend scanning all unknown source files with Malwarebytes before opening
Is It Legal or Grey?
Release BB is in the grey area when it comes to what it allows you to do as an add on. Many add ons plead legality by acting as third parties for content between providers and users, when truthfully they are as much complicit in the distribution of illegal material, which is why add ons regularly go down or disappear altogether.
Release BB is releasing brand new content straight from the source at high quality and their URL is banned in a number of countries
Should I Use This App With A VPN?
You should always use Kodi with a VPN for a number of reasons:
- Release BB is actually Geo-IP locked in a number of countries, meaning that you need to access it from their Russian or Tongan server
- A VPN can help stream anonymously by encrypting your data sent through your ISP’s system and making your data look just like any other secure transmission which cannot be decrypted
- A VPN can also change your IP to make your connection originate from another location or even another country
- Your Internet Service Provider works closely with content producers to crack down on the distribution of content that breaks copyright laws. Your ISP notes down all your browsing history and will flag you if you use known to add ons and sources that distribute questionable content
- This allows you to remain fully anonymous online as well as avoid any prying eyes or limitations placed on what you can view or watch
Is It Free?
When Was It Released?
Release BB was originally released in 2016, and re-released in 2019
There are tons of great alternative out there We recommend:

Release BB is a great source for quality content, which is always a big problem when dealing with add ons. We recommend you spend a few Euros on a Real Debrid account, you’ll thank us when you consistently get to watch high-quality links.
