Free Live TV is a newly released Kodi addon that we hope will eventually deliver the best live TV streaming we’ve seen to date. This Kodi addon scrapes its content directly from official sources only, so there’s nothing unreliable or sketchy in here. Since it is still new, the channel list is somewhat limited, every Kodi addon has to start somewhere and the developer of this addon has a proven track record. We expect to see new channels being added regularly, so definitely stay tuned on this one. So far the live TV channel list includes: Al JazeeraBloomberg Global NewsCBS NewsChargeCheddarComet TVFrance TVHSN TVNewsyRT NewsSky News and TBD TV.
Free Live TV for Kodi is developed by mhancoc7 (of USTVnow Plus fame), and is distributed directly through our community repository for easy installation.
