Many users notice that sometimes the links in Covenant and Elysium are not working. For example "People Watching", "Popular", "Top Rated" etc. These licks actually try to get information from TMDB (The Movies Database) and require an API key. Kodi third party addons come with the API key. However, when too many people using the same API key from third party addons at the same time, TMDB will block APIs with excessive requests to their servers. When the API key is down, addons will not be able to display the requested data (movies).
As we all know, new Elysium in 2018 will need users to enter their own API key. So it is good that we get one now. This article will help you to get your own TMDB API key and configure third party addons.
