How To Make Kodi Your Online Streaming Powerhouse
By Steph Myers / January 12, 2016
Ah, the freedom of free TV… See how to turn Kodi into an all-powerful video streaming system (no piracy needed).
Kodi’s origins may be outside the mainstream, but over the past couple years, the home media system has garnered an increasingly conventional user-base.
Kodi (formerly called XBMC, as in Xbox Media Center) is now one of the most entertainment platforms out there. The fact that it’s free certainly helps.
But it is Kodi’s flexibility, power, and utility that really make it a popular choice for those who want a better way to organize their collection of videos, TV shows, movies, photos, and music.
Kodi works on a wide range of devices, including computers and several media streamers. After installing it, Kodi works ‘out of the box’ to organize media in an intuitive, user-friendly way.
The thing that truly turns Kodi into an impressive platform are the many add-ons that have been developed to ramp up what it can do.

Lots of these add-ons have a bad rap — and for good reason. A high number of the most popular Kodi add-ons make it extremely easy for users to stream copyrighted content without paying for it. It’s hard to see that as anything other than a violation of copyright law, which has many wondering if Kodi is legal.
The add-ons that exist to illegally stream TV shows and movies are best avoided. (That said, if you’re going to risk it then at least use protection. See how to stream safely, however you watch.)
Other, legal add-ons can turn Kodi into a great online streaming system. So to take Kodi to the next level, you’ll need to get several of these installed.
Some of the best Kodi add-ons to install to turn the platform into your internet streaming super-system are those that give easy access to YouTube, Netflix, BBC and Popcorn Flix. But there are many others in Kodi’s official add-on repository that will make streaming great content online a fast, hassle-free experience.
Once you’re up and running with Kodi, spend some time browsing the available add-ons. Just note that anything outside the official repo is probably sketchy and likely a source of pirated content, so be careful.
After you’ve got Kodi fully-loaded, it’s time to get the popcorn and settle in for hours of streaming awesome online videos.
