  • Anyone got KODI on an Amazon TV usb fire stick? Any good?

    Just been learning about free software called Kodi which is available online and you can put it on a fire stick and basically watch just about anything being streamed without all the agro in HD etc.

    For £35 and free software sounds a no brainer. Just wondered if anyone on here had any experience of it.
    No cheap shots...well maybe the odd one if its funny...

    Argos have a sale on at the moment and the kids got one for me at £25.

    I was given a demonstration on boxing day. It picks lots of streams and you choose the best with plenty of other options if that stream doesn't prove to be the best quality.

    I was told that you can get virtually anything with really good quality except for sport where it can be a bit laggy due to the overload of traffic!

    Looks a steal at these prices.

        Sounds good mate. For that money I'm in. I've heard you can get sport too with the add on so hopeful for snooker and golf coverage. Will be good for streaming fans on TSF if that works well. Kodi should pull in the Sport streams that people post on here but with no buffering or adverts to X out.

          The football was really busy with a fair bit of buffering but the snooker should be fine.

                Just in case anyone's not aware, Kodi runs on anything, including a PC, so you don't have to buy a firestick or a box if you don't want.

                Also, SportsMania were a nightmare when I signed my dad up - it worked for an hour or so, then kept asking me to upgrade to Elite, which I'd already done and was acknowledged in my profile. After several weeks of sending messages to the site admins and receiving no reply, I asked Barclaycard to reverse the transaction. A week later, it started working with no acknowledgement whatsoever from the admins That lasted a couple of months and then stopped as either my subscription "expired" or they finally acknowledged the reversal.

                      I was told to avoid installing on laptops and pcs as Kodi tends to download viruses to these; personally I can't confirm either way but just thought I'd add it just in case!

                          Strange i've had Sportsmania a long time and i've never had to sign up to Elite??

                            It's a pain in the neck when you don't know what you're doing but once the penny drops it's something you can't do without
