If you want to watch live TV on Kodi, there are several options available to you. But which are actually worth installing?
If you want to stream IPTV through the Kodi app, keep reading. Here are the best Kodi TV addons that you can install today.
cCloud has been one of the most popular Kodi addons for years. It lets you stream live TV channels from around the world for free. More than 2,000 channels are available in total. They include sports and news networks from the US, UK, and Europe.
It is available through a few different repos, but according to the developer, the official repo is the GitHub version we’ve linked to above.
2. Arconai TV
Arconai TV is another of the best Kodi addons for live TV. You can grab a copy via the Tempest repo.
It offers live IPTV from around the world, 24/7 movie channels, on-demand TV shows, and even random global cam feeds from CCTV and webcams.
Limitless organizes its TV channels by country for easy sorting. Most TV channels are available in HD; some of the on-demand content is even available in 4K.
The Limitless TV addon is available in the Luxury Wizard repo. We’ve linked to it above.
4. PVR IPTV
PVR IPTV is an essential Kodi addon if you want to use an M3U playlist URL on Kodi. If you’ve subscribed to one of the top IPTV services, it’s highly probable that the provider has issued you with such a link.
The addon does not host any of its own IPTV channels, so without an M3U file, it is worthless. If you don’t have a paid M3U URL, we’ve created a list with some of the best free IPTV subscriptions that you should check out.
Many people say Selfless is the leading IPTV addon for Kodi. That’s because that rather than taking IPTV sourcing in-house, the app uses a long list of third-party IPTV providers from around the world for its content. More providers mean more sources, meaning Selfless is an excellent option if your stream goes down or is excessively buffering.
You can install it through the Bliss TV repo.
Chronos has a shorter list of channels than some of the other Kodi IPTV addons in this list, but that’s not always a bad thing. Remember, enthusiasts ultimately run these addons. If an addon has too many channels, the dev won’t be able to keep on top of broken streams as they go down.
The main focus of Chronos is IPTV from the US and UK. If you want the big-name channels—like ABC, BBC, CNN, and FOX—you will be able to find them.
Grab Chronos from the SkyDarks repo.
j1tv is about more than live TV. The addon includes a vast amount of video-on-demand, including music videos, movies, documentaries, concerts, anime, and even old WWE coverage. There is a separate section for live events.
Get j1tv from LazyKodi.
8. TEMP TV
If you are looking for international IPTV on Kodi, check out TEMP TV. Like Arconai TV, you can download it from the Tempest repo. You will find free IPTV streams from India, Latin America, Europe, and beyond.
Channels on TEMP TV are subdivided into Entertainment, Movies, Kids, Music, and Movies.
Vukovar has plenty of English IPTV streams, but also a long list of foreign channels. The streams are reliable, but be aware than this is an addon developed in Croatia and so the menus and user interface is not in English. Don’t let that put you off though, it is still easy enough to navigate.
The addon is available in Zadar.
We end with Catch-Up TV & More. It offers IPTV channels from around the world with a focus on the UK, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, and Italy.
The addon has its own repo.
Use a VPN
To make sure you stay safe while using these Kodi addons, make sure you know how to install a VPN on Kodi.
A VPN will protect your traffic and let you unblock streaming sites in other countries.
