cCloud TV Kodi Addon
cCloud TV is one of the best Live TV addons for Kodi. Rivalling Red Box and even Mobdro when it’s on a good day.
You can access over 1000 live channels, as well as TV Shows, Movies, radio channels, and news channels. Its also been going for so long that it even has its own website: http://ccloudtv.org/
It’s also one of the longest-running Live TV add ons and has survived this longing by being smart and not hosting any content from all the Live TV that it allows you to stream.
In our review, we detail this further, but Live TV channels are kept updated by the community and you rarely have a channel go down for very long.
We also recommend that you install cCloud TV’s Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) alongside the add on, which you can do, after you have installed cCloud TV by going to:
- From the Kodi home screen so to settings and then add ons
- Go to Install from Repository
- Then cCloud repo and program add ons
- Click on cCloud TV Guide and then install
Just be aware that the database does take a while to build and synchronize for the programming and timings for over 1,000 channels. So, don’t panic and think the program guide has frozen. Just get it going and go and grab some fresh air. The guide really does make a massive difference to the experience.

Here we list out the common errors you will come across with cCloud TV, this tends to happen much more when dealing with Live TV add ons:
- Installation Failed. This error can manifest in two ways, either the installation gets an error message saying it cannot connect to the URL, or the installation bar just gets stuck at 0%. If you cannot install the add on in the first place, checked you have typed out the URL correctly. Then check the source, by typing in the URL into your internet browser. If the source works, then chalk it up to an overloaded server. If the problem persists find more fixes guide linked above.
- Stream not working/ Not available. When a stream fails, it means that the source it was trying to fetch could not be connected. First, if a stream hasn’t failed but just appears to be a black screen, give it as long as 10 seconds to connect. Secondly, try to refresh the stream again. Sometimes the server may be overloaded and have not picked up your request. If the problem persists then read our full guide linked above.
- Kodi error check log. You might get an error message saying you need to check the Kodi error log. This just means that your media cache is full. You will get this after you have been streaming for a while. Everything you have watched gets cached and on smaller storage devices you run out of space. You can either ignore the message until it won’t let you. Or learn how to clear the cache of any device and more fixes, try some more in the guide linked above.
cCloud Tv is a brilliant Live TV add on and has been going strong for years. The reason is the community. Every channel is vetted and kept live by a community of faithful users.
When a link breaks a new one is found, and through the community, the add on stays active and updated.
The developer has continued to release some great updates as well. The EPG is beautiful and has a great outlay of programs and timings, as well as being easily searchable.
Tie this in with the ability to enable M3U IPTV playlists, which means you get a constantly updated and working list of channels.
