Best Add-ons for Sports on Kodi
Kodi provides a wide range of add ons for watching any kind of sport you could care to name. Everything from the latest pay per view boxing fight, to the NBA, NFL and even MMA.
Whatever takes your fancy with our best add ons for sports on Kodi you are sure to find an add on that works for you.
What is Kodi
Kodi has been around since 2002 and is a completely legal open-source media player which is also free. It’s also one of the oldest media players around and has gone from being a niche product targeted at Xbox users who wanted to play media on their devices to millions of users across the globe.
Kodi gives you the power to turn your humble TV into a rocket-powered home entertainment center capable of getting almost any viewing experience you could wish for. From sports to movies and TV shows, to obscure anime and adult movies.
The media player has gained popularity for several reasons. Firstly, it is deep and feature-rich, Kodi is supported by a core team of developers who work on behalf of the XMBC Foundation, they also receive corporate sponsorship and keep Kodi updated with regular patches every month, as well as a major new version released every year.
Secondly, Kodi has a 10-foot user interface, which allows it to be installed on your Android device and convert application to viewing quality on television, as well as allowing the application to be navigated using a TV remote.
Finally, Kodi is unrivaled in the number of add ons it has both officially and unofficially. These number in the tens of thousand with all the add ons we cover being of the unofficial variety.
What is an Add-On
An add on simply an extension of features, much like a mobile phone application. Through the add on you can gain access to a specific service or feature not already inherent within the base Kodi program.
Kodi, after all, is a media player and platform, it’s the add ons which really bring it to life. Add ons can be downloaded individually or bulk downloaded as part of a build or wizard.
YOUR INTERNET ACTIVITY IS BEING WATCHED
ReviewVPN cannot attest to the legality, security and privacy of the applications discussed on this site. It is highly recommended that you use a VPN service while streaming or using Kodi.
Currently, your IP 18.104.22.168 is visible to everyone and your Browser is being tracked by Advertisers & ISP Provider.
Here are the main reasons why you should use a VPN:
- Your activities are hidden from your ISP, the government, and from the apps you are using.
- You might be able to access additional streams.
- ISP attempts to throttle are thrwarted thus reducing buffering issues.
- Geographically restricted content like Netflix and Hulu can be unblocked.
A VPN works be replacing your ISP assigned IP address and creating an encrypted tunnel. We recommend the no log service offered by IPVanish. It works well on a firestick and offers the fastest possible speeds.
Watching Sports on Kodi
Apart from movies and TV shows, sports features as the third most popular category of media. Some of the add ons we cover deal with sports exclusively, while other add ons offer sports as part of a category.
Whether you want to pull streams from YouTube, watch Live Sports, or even just wallows in the euphoria of old matches. There is something here for everyone.
Should I Use Kodi With a VPN?
We strongly recommend that you use Kodi and any of these add-ons with a VPN for several reasons:
- Your Internet Service Provider will be vigilant for anyone using their services for watching illegal streams. This is particularly true for live Sports which is big business.
- Trying to access these stream through an unencrypted internet connection could lead to that IP being blocked, your IP being flagged for watching illegal content, your internet connection being throttled or slowed down and in extreme cases receiving a letter of warning, getting a fine or in some extreme cases having criminal charges brought against you
- A trusted VPN can avoid all these consequences in two ways. Firstly, using a VPN client that you can download and install on your Android device you can encrypt you connection. This means that all your data packets containing your requests from websites are unreadable to any third party or even your ISP. It passes as a secure packet between your device and your VPN’s DNS Server. The same is true for data coming back. This makes it impossible to block access to any site
- Secondly, a VPN allows you to change your IP address, hop between countries and access region-restricted content. Meaning it’s difficult to track where you are let alone what you are doing
- Without a VPN you may find over time that many add ons on Kodi simply stop working, and many of the links you click on are blocked.
