Sports Devil ranks as one of the most popular Kodi addons ever for a good reason. This latest version turns an Amazon Firestick with Kodi and SportsDevil installed into your new best friend. The developers broke the Sport Devil menu down into categories for easy access to all the content you want to view.
Updated for November 2017 The Ares Project, along with many other Kodi third-party developers, has gone the way of the dodo in the massive anti-piracy shake-down that took place last week. Thankfully, the XvBMC REPOsitory hosts an up-to-date release of SportsDevil for you to download and install.

Repo Locations for Advanced Users
If you’ve installed add-ons and repositories onto your Fire TV or Firestick before, then you probably just need the repository address for the XvBMC REPOsitory at http://archive.org/download/repository.xvbmc There, you will find many great TV addons, including the temporarily displaced Covenant. Then, of course, you can also find the star of today’s game, SportsDevil!

Enable All Streams!
Before we try to get going, we want to make sure you’ve set everything up for game time! Streaming from some sources requires additional add-ons, which SportsDevil installs as dependencies. In order to receive all potential input streams available, we need to enable them if not already.
- Head into the Kodi Add-ons section once more
- Then, go into the My addons area
- Click or tap VideoPlayer InputStream
- Note that in the image, I’ve already enabled the InputStream Adaptive add-on. You can tell by the check mark next to the name. I activated InputStream Adaptive exactly the same way I’ll now show you how to enable the RTMP Input add-on. The ‘x’ denotes that the RTMP Input Kodi add-on is not yet activated.
- Once you’ve tapped or clicked on RTMP Input to enter its settings area, hit the Enable button in order to enable the add-on
- Upon enablement, the button changes to say Disable. Do the same with the InputStream Adaptive add-on if not already enabled.
- Sports Devil 2017 awaits within the Add-ons area under the main Kodi menu
- Find it under Video add-ons within the Add-ons section of Kodi as well.
