Rising Tides Kodi Addon
Rising Tides used to a great live TV add on, giving you a great range of sports, Live TV and other sundry channels.
Recently the add on has been abandoned by the developer, so we wait in hope of someone resurrecting it.
When it works it’s a great add on with a good range of channels and streams, as well as some great scraping sources. Used to be a particularly good source for Pay per View matches.
There are a couple of common errors you would come across with Rising Tides or any Live TV Kodi add on:
- Stream not working/ Not available. You are going to get channels and streams that just don’t work. But don’t instantly write off the stream. First, give it a refresh and allow the server a full 10 seconds to make a connection before trying another source. Also try to always use Kodi with a VPN which can help you circumvent your ISP blocking your connection and can also be used to change country to see if you are being Geo-IP blocked from accessing the content. If none of that works, then read our fix guide linked above.
- Could not Download/ Web URL failure. With Rising Tides this might just be because the add on is down. There have been persistent reports on Reddit and other review boards that Rising Tides is down. A sure-fire way to check the URL is to copy and paste it into an internet browser. If the link doesn’t work in the browser then the repository is down. For more fixes check out our guide linked above.
- Kodi error check log. A common error you will get the longer you use Kodi. All the media that you stream is cached so that it can load faster the next time you access it. This fills up your storage space, which may happen quite quickly if you stream a lot and use a low storage device like an Amazon Firestick. To find out how to clear your cache and fix other problems in your error log read our fix guide linked above.
Rising Tides used to be a great add on but recently has had numerous reports about being down and inaccessible.
Though there seem to be intermittent connectivity it looks like the developer had abandoned this project for pastures new, we can only hope a plucky young developer will take up the challenge and come and update what was once a brilliant add on.
If you want a great selection of Live Sports channels, then we suggest you check out Sports Devil or Mobdro. Most of the working links in Rising Tides probably comes from Sports Devil. The 5-year-old king of sports add ons for Kodi.
Alternatively, if you really want the best selection of Live TV, sports or country specific then we suggest a paid service like Set TV, Player’s Klub or Helix IPTV. It’s going to cost you $7 a month or more, but you are going to get access to a minimum of 3,000+ quality live channels in HD, with daily updated programming and little downtime. As ever if you want the best, then its worth paying the money.
Categories you can access from the menu include:
- Football highlights
- Sports Channels
- Ace streams Live Events
- Live Football
- Live PPV Events
- Extra Live Content
- IPTV Heaven
- Country Channels
- Test Area
Rising Tides gathers streams from the following sources:
- Rising Tides (One od the sources includes Ace streams which gives you great access to live sporting events and PPV matches)
- Replay Me
- Live Stream pro
- Sports Devil (It’s recommended you have Sports Devil installed to get access to all their 40+ streams)
