Kodi is basically an open source media player app that can be installed on all sorts of hardware (game consoles, PC's, phones, tablets, amazon fire stick etc). There is a very active development community who make all sorts of 'addons' that run off kodi. So you can get an addon that specialises in streaming live football matches, or get an addon that specialises in streaming pirated films and tv, or an addon that lets you stream live tv from around the world (and so on, you get the drift)

Its use is popular in combination with an Amazon Firestick because they are cheap and plug straight into your TV (and come with a crap remote that you can use to control it) and it gives you very easy access to more media than you could ever watch in your lifetime, straight to your TV.

I bought my firestick off ebay for £45 as I was worried about fucking up the install.

Mine came with tvaddons on it and getting plugins is a simple of choosing the ones you want just like an appstore and it does the rest.

Genesis and Phoenix are amazing. Probably the best £45 i've ever spent.

Rewatched the Star Wars prequel trilogy over the last few days. Pure dogshit, more so than I remember even. Why I hear you ask? Good question. I also ate a whole large Toblerone today. None of these were good decisions. 2016 please.

I thought you could run it on an xbox but having just looked into it, it appears you can't run it on any games consoles.

Making a Murderer (Netflix) is excellent if anyone likes true crime stuff.

Nope, can't be done. Get a firestick, well worth it. I got cheap boxes off amazon/ebay years back, so many cheap variants with apparently good specs but the truth is they are shit and will eventually brick.

Lots of great add ons, Dub stop, Prime Links etc

THINK the iptv stalker app gets blocked a lot/doesn't work often in the uk and you need new urls to make it work or something. Shouldn't have to pay £30 mind!

Got some time to kill, anyone recommend a TV series to watch. I pretty much haven't seen any except for Breaking Bad and that was great, what's next in line?
