Rising Tides is a sports addon for Kodi that brings to you a wide range of streams in various categories. You can play sports highlights and live sports channels through this addon. The content library is moderately big and new streams are added every now and then.

How to Install Rising Tides Kodi Addon

I will now take you through the detailed instructions to install Rising Tides Kodi addon. It usually takes just a few minutes to install this addon. Let’s get started.

Attention: Kodi Addons bring unlimited streaming content, but could also get you in a legal trouble. Kodi users must use a VPN to hide their identity while streaming movies / TV Shows / Sports. Moreover, many popular Addons are geo-blocked and will require a VPN to work.

I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN which is the best VPN for Kodi. You can get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans.

Mandatory Prerequisite: Enable Unknown Sources

Kodi is a secure app and to make sure your devices do not get affected by the malicious programs, it prevents the installation of third-party add-ons and builds by default. However, we are going to install a safe add-on and hence this security restriction needs to be bypassed. Here is what you need to do:

1. Open Kodi app on your device and navigate to the top-left of the screen. Highlight the cog icon and click it to open Settings

Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons / Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, Sports) might get you into legal trouble.

Kodi users are strongly advised to connect a VPN while streaming. A VPN for Kodi will bypass ISP throttling, Government Surveillance, and geo-restriction on popular Add-ons. I always connect ExpressVPN on all my streaming devices and I suggest you do the same.

ExpressVPN is the fastest and most secure VPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it freely for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for the full refund.

NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of the copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.

So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.

Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE.

Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your device.

Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.

Rising Tides is a straightforward addon with a simple interface. It lets you start streaming quickly. Here are the main options on the home-screen:

  • Football Highlights
  • Sports Channels
  • Acestream Live Events
  • Live Football
  • Live PPV Events
  • Extra Live Content
  • IPTV Heaven

While Rising Tides has a lot of working streams, some videos may not work all the time. You will want to browse these categories to find the working streams.

As I have already said, offline-streams is not a problem unique to Rising Tides. Maintaining a sizeable and working library of live TV streams is no easy feat, especially when it is being provided free.

You may need to keep multiple sports addon to get access to a varying range of sports content. SportsDevil is also a good option, which you can also install from the Rising Tides repository.
