SportsDevil: The Infamous Sports Addon

SportsDevil is the most (in)famous and historically the best sports addon for Kodi.  We say “historically” because it works so well that various organizations have begun to crack down on the streams that are made available by SportsDevil.  Some users report it still works great for them, while others say it doesn’t work at all.  UK users who report that SportsDevil doesn’t work may actually be victim of geo-blocking.

How to Install SportsDevil

Installing SportsDevil can be a little different than installing other addons, so we wrote a guide to show you exactly How to install SportsDevil.

How to Watch Live TV on SportsDevil

Once you have SportsDevil installed, to watch a Live sports program using SportsDevil:

  • Select a category from SportsDevil’s main menu
  • Then navigate your way to an individual stream
  • Select a stream to play the stream!
    • If a stream is jittery or buffers too much, then try a different stream.  Or check out our guide on how to fix Kodi buffering.

Navi-X: The App-Within-An-App for Live TV XBMC Channels

Navi-X is a unique TV Addon for Kodi because it functions differently than other TV Addons:  Navi-X behaves more like its own “app” or “program” than other Kodi addons.  Most Kodi addons work within the general visual theme that your Kodi is using, but Navi-X has its own interface.  Navi-X starts you off with a menu of large icons – usually you just choose “START HERE”, then Search for a Live TV XBMC channel you’d like to watch.  Navi-X also has many many movies and TV shows to watch, as well.  They also have adult content!

How to Install Navi-X

To install Navi-X, use the Add On Installer for XBMC / Kodi.  You can install the AddOn Installer easily with our guide.
