    The only thing worse than "the Man" is cable TV or or internet companies. I personally do not like or watch TV but my old lady (1960s hippie speak for my woman) might want to have some TV.

    I have 25 MB download via shit Comcast/ I am rocking a NetGearN300 which will do 340MBps with 8 downstream and 4 upstream channels.

    Maxtvlive.com claims 750 US channels, 800 Uk channels and loads more for $25 a month. They sell three different Kodi boxes. The top of the line is $99.95 which includes Kodi No Limits.

    Personally, I would rather spend my bread on QB boards. Peace and thanks for any help.

    Pray for Blue Boy's soul. He was dropping that acid.

    Try "Showbox" app, you get most of the new movie releases and new TV box sets, great app and it's all free.

    No it's a free to download and use app. You need to have a smart TV or android device to get it. I plug my tablet via HDMI lead into my TV and stream that way, also you can download all the content.
    You won't find it on play store, just search Showbox app free download.

    Kodi and plugins are free. Never pay anything ever.

    Try Kodi Nolimits build. Version is 11, free.

    Firesticks will be 20$ in a couple of days when prime day arrives.

    PC can be used with HDMI cable to TV as well. Free

    I use PIA VPN, never had a problem in like 6 years, never had any ISP emails either, I also use Tor, but not always. I watch whatever I want whenever I want, commercial free. I gave up on Kodi right about the same time they changed their name to Kodi from XBMC. I will admit that sporting events can be problematic with torrents, so maybe not the best solution if you are into sports in a big way, but you can always find streaming sites for the odds and ends imo. I haven't had any virus issues either (sometimes with games, usually false positives), of course I only download from Trusted and VIP members on PB. I did have endless issues with XBMC and broken scripts, streaming lag and just didnt like the interface and menus at all. Kodi probably makes sense from a set top box perspective, I have my main PC hooked up to the big screen with wireless KB and mouse. Not everyone is going to want to do that. I have tried everything over the years and I always come back to the torrents.

    So download Kodi V 11.0 to the firestick and run on PC or tablet with HDMI into the TV? I have about 25 MBps down and maybe 1.5 to 2.5 up on Comcast. I wonder if a faster PC or tablet helps to avoid any glitching?

    So on Kodi No Limits you can pretty much watch almost anything? Thanks for all the help everyone.

    Kodi 17.6 or 18 to the firestick. Then no limits 11.0, yes everything pretty much. Speed should be ok for HD and lower. 720-4k may lag.

    Just Google Kodi firestick then Google nolimits build install.

    :-)

    Teatv. Just dowload program, no need for addons and such. Really amazed by how well it works, especially since kodi has been sucking lately.

    Give it a shot, you will thank me.
