Kodi is a software application for streaming online.It was developed in 2004 by a non-profit technology consortium called XBMC Foundation. It is an open-source software meaning its services are for free.
Kodi has gained popularity mainly because of its versatility and the fact it is one of the best media players there is. To use Kodi, you would require third-party Kodi add-ons to enable your streaming media from the internet which also translates to allowing you stream media from around the world.
With the ever-increasing costs of cable TV, more people are engaging in cord cutting (forgoing cable TV subscription for an internet or wireless based option). With Kodi, you can ditch your cable TV for good. It feels good to have a bill you don’t have to pay anymore right?
There are so many Kodi add-ons and new ones are coming up every day. Knowing the best add-ons for you to use is important. Users do not trust a lot of Kodi because of the servers they are hosted on. Some servers could be irregular and unpredictable. Even with so many add-ons coming up, a lot of them go under in no time so it is good to keep abreast of the reliable ones.
We Recommend using a Virtual Private Network, VPN
To make sure you are safe while using Kodi add-ons, it is advised that you use them with a VPN. This is why:
● Some Kodi add-ons are illegal so it is not safe to use without a VPN
Most people fall into the trap of downloading illegal add-ons because they usually have more media options to choose from compared to the legal Kodi add-ons. This is because the illegal ones provide a lot of copyrighted content. If you access all these without a VPN your Internet Service Provider observes what you stream and can give the information to the government when the need arises. No one wants trouble from the government so your ISP is more than likely to protect itself first by handing your information to whoever needs it.
● Go around location restrictions
Some add-ons can only work in particular locations. To bypass these restrictions, one would need a VPN. Some add-ons that have geo-location restrictions are Hulu, IceFilms, BBC Player and so on.
