The link in the 3rd post has a good tutorial. 2 subs on reddit have good help too. r/kodi and r/AddOns4Kodi

It is easy to do yourself. Better to do it yourself so you know how to upgrade and add on what you wish.

Kodi is not illegal. It is a software that can have illegal or grey area 3rd-party addons. A rough comparison is saying that Chrome or YouTube is not illegal but through both of those it is possible to stream live NHL, MLB, NBA...... which might not be quite legal.

get that, load kodi (www.kodi.tv) anything and everything you could ever dream of watching for free, past and present every movie, every tv episode ever made.

if not enough, subscribe, to netflix hulu hbo ect.
If that has "anything and everything" how would subscribing to netflix or hulu help?

I was just joking around. If they had "everything" there would be no need for anything else.

I've been looking into many of these options, but haven't exactly been too amazed thus far.

I mean, my cable/internet bill with Comcast is $135 / month. That's a tier 2 cable package with HBO, DVR, on-demand, etc.

Say I got rid of cable. I'd still need high speed internet, netflix, Sling TV, digital antenna, etc. Wouldn't all that put together be at least $100 per month? Guess, what I'm saying is the bit extra I'm paying Comcast is for the convenience of not needing multiple services and/or devices. Not to mention, being at the mercy of my home internet speed and digital antenna reception. I know a few people with digital antennas and it really seemed hit or miss on how good their reception was. Some didn't get certain channels while others did or certain channels would cut-out, etc.

Don't get me wrong, I like the direction everything is going in not needing to rely on Comcrap or Direct, etc. It just hasn't progressed to the point where I'm ready to take the leap.

Default help me disconnect from cable

We called friday and cancelled our Suddenlink cable and upgraded our intetnet. Cut our bill from 180+ to 60

Wr were using Roku in the living room which I love, but we bought a new Sony Smart TV with Android menu. Its great and Roku went to daughters room with old tv.

I don't live in the city or within city limits, so the cable/internet bundle isn't an option for me. So I was paying $130 just for satellite and $70 for unlimited high speed internet. So with me canceling satellite and just going with an antenna, Netflix, and Hulu. I went from $130 a month for tv to $18. I still pay the same amount for internet. That's worth saving to me. It's not for everybody, but I made the change 2 years ago, and I can't complain. My wife and I actually like it allot better.

Here's our problem: We live in the sticks - internet service is by radio signal and is slow. I can't even watch an episode of Breaking Bad thru Netflix on my cellphone without it buffering several times.

Cellular service is worse than crappy too.

The reviews I read about the satellite based internet services say they're not much better than what I have.

I keep thinking go with Dish Network for their internet and use a basic package for TV.

I'm open to suggestions.

Your only option would be a good antenna, booster, and a tall pole/tower to clear tree tops.

you can install a "build" or "wizard" that loads up all the popular stuff for live tv, movies, sports ect. "the beast" set up is pretty great.

1channel, phoenix, project free tv, live streams, ect are all good single add ons. https://www.tvaddons.ag/ is a good source

For the people that use the fire stick, how do you like it? I'm thinking of getting one and doing the jail break and adding kodi. I have the roku 3 now. Any idea of comparison, as far as processing speeds, memory, etc? Or would you recommend just getting the fire tv box?

I have a nvidia shield with kodi installed for movies and channels I don't get

and a tivo roamio w/ a lifetime subscription for recording shows, which also records OTA channels if I ever cancel TV.

I do still have TV service though, the wife can't figure all this stuff out.

the box performs better with better specs. you can make the sticks run great though with "advanced settings"

the wifi in the stick though can interfere with some tvs. works great in my living room, but bedroom tv shows wifi errors. have to use a hdmi extension cable to get it far enough away from the tv so it wont interfere. I have 4 sticks, and 3 of them have this issue on the same tv.

if trying to save money by going with a stick, I would grab a raspberri pi 3 for $35, along with a keyboard remote for $15 and run kodi on that. flawless performer. there are also numerous other android boxes available for $35-50 with good specs.

anyone not used to using kodi, put it on your pc first to try it out and get familiar. should be able to quickly decide if it could replace your tv.

what advanced settings are you using, I've tried standards you find on google? I've set those and still have some buffer issues. Anything new that can help fix that problem would be awesome.

I only really have buffering issue with the HQ movies, MQ/LQ movies stream good. But who wants to watch those right.

What advanced setting are you talking about exactly? I bought a fire stick and loaded kodi, then the Spartan file. I have buffering issues when Im streaming live tv. Any fixes that you know of for this?

I side loaded mine directly into a file- but try it this way in the video- I use the same settings he uses in the video. No buffering at all after doing that.

There's like 4 different advanced settings you can choose- that one works best for me- if you still have issues try another setting. My wifi speeds are always about 30-50mbps also.

You may also always get buffering issues with certain add ons- try a different one if they persist. Could be the server.

Im sure there is a plug in out there somewhere that can make that happen. You could also just hook it up with hdmi

I only really have buffering issue with the HQ movies, MQ/LQ movies stream good. But who wants to watch those right.

If fire stick use the ones I posted above- if another device use one that maxes out the ram.

So... I tend to impulse buy and Fire TV / Kodi was a very good choice. Ordered off Amazon and had it in hand the next day. About 15 minutes after install, I had Kodi and a few addons loaded and working perfectly. Not sure if this will ever allow me to 'cut the cable' but it does provide lots of viewing options!
