Update. In September 2020, Tikipeter has removed free scrapers from Fen addon, meaning Fen is now a debrid-only addon.

Fen is a movies and TV shows addon from Tikipeter's Repository, and unlike many of its Exodus-forked counterparts in structure, and impressed me much with a sizable amount of additional functions. Fen features fast link probing from varies of resources, and a practical and easy-to-use download capacity enabled by default to save a lot toils for new users to configure.

To provider premium links, apart from debrid services like Real-Debrid and Premiumize, Fen also supports cloud storage provider Furk and usenets provider Easynews.
