Watch Free TV!! Better Than Netflix!

Updated on May 31, 2017

Quick And Easy Way To Get Free Live TV, On Demand Movies, UFC PPV and More! FREE

Okay , some of you have heard about Kodi. Others have probably purchased Firesticks, which I program and sale so drop a comment if you want one. I have other tutorials showing how to program an Amazon Firestick. I work in my free time as a volunteer developer on some XBMC Applications and have developed a few of my own including my own build that I personally maintenance. If you are the other 93% of America who has no idea what I am talking about then READ THIS and wait to be amazed. This article will go over the features of KODI and how you can use it to watch everything for free. There is no monthly charge and if it proves too technical I do remote assistance installs and ship Firesticks nationwide. The Remote assistance is only 15 dollars and a Firestick will run you 70$ with shipping The Firestick plugs into the back of your TV and allow you to access this program from your TV as long as you have an HDMI port on your TV. It will replace your cable completely and you can just pay the much cheaper price for Internet. You can even use this device as a phone and talk to people through your Alexa Remote. Anyhow, on to learning what this is and how you can install it on your computer, tablet, phone or some smart TVs!

What Is KODI

Kodi is a XBMC developer platform that was originally created for the XBOX user interface of Microsoft. The tool was very powerful for developers and can use an array of applications and programs to do multiple task. KODI became a much more powerful tool when developers realized they could use third party and open source applications to stream media content. Think of Kodi like the YouTube of all TV. Live , on demand, you name it. Movie titles go back as far as 1928 with silent films even making the cut. The program is fairly easy to use and you will never get a virus, malware or other crap from using KODI. Best of all it is completely legal to use and a simple interface! Let's look at the short video bellow of me navigating the program to access a few movies and shows.

Here's A Short Preview Of What You Get!

This Doesn't Seem Legal

Yes, IT IS LEGAL

Streaming is completely legal. The only issues that can occur are in these two scenarios.

  1. You record what you are streaming. Recording gives you physical possession of the content therefore putting you in violation of copy rights and in possession of unlicensed content. Moral of the story , DO NOT RECORD IT FOR LONGER THAN 5 MINUTES.
  2. You invite 30 people to your home to watch UFC and charge them each 10 dollars to watch the fight. You are now entering the illegal zone. Do not invite hordes of people over to watch the fight and if you do, do not charge them to do so. Make sure they are guest and charge them for nothing.

Outside of those two conditions you will never have an issue streaming content. As far as the companies and applications providing the streams? Are they illegal? The answer again is NO. Here is a Business Insider article that has the following information provided :

Online streaming sites may try to avoid trouble by not hosting their own content, instead acting as a search engine for links to streamed content, usually embedded from a secondary site. In that case, determining accountability requires the "inducement rule," a test created in a 2005 Supreme Court ruling which states that a company or website can only be held accountable for distributing unlicensed content if it clearly encourage users to infringe a copyright.

"It does very much depend on the marketing and the uses [these sites] are encouraging .... You know, GM can make a car. You can use it as a getaway car in a bank robbery, or you can use it to get work. So we don’t say that GM is on the hook just because it provides a technology that can be used illegally," Gibson said. The same goes for streaming websites.

So to answer your questions and the things people make up, Yes, it is 100% legal to use this program and it is 100% free which is part of what makes it legal. Even me charging to program it for you or send you a device with it is legal because I can not encourage you to do anything illegal. Did you know that Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Amazon Prime and HBO Now are also streaming services?

Well, Now You Know AND...

      As long as there are not strict data limits to your ISP, it should be possible. The only country close to making it Illegal is England and they have not done so yet.

      Sounds interesting and FREE makes it appealing. Do you know if it is available for the Caribbean region? Some of this stuff isn't.
