So you’ve got Kodi installed and you just cannot wait to start streaming your favourite movies and sports. There’s just one problem – you don’t know what to download. Well fear not, here are 10 of the best Kodi apps for your Android TV Box.
What is Kodi
Kodi is basically an open-source media player that’s available to download for free. Originally known as XBMC, it is highly customisable and used today to stream, play and view videos, podcasts, music and digital media files from Windows, Mac iOS and OS, Linux, BSD, and of course the Android system. So, what are the best Kodi Android TV box apps?
Top of the list of best apps for Android TV box is by far the Exodus add-on. In a recent poll 73% of contributors put Exodus at the top of their list. The fact the second placed add-on polled just 8% of votes, shows the enormous popularity of the Exodus package. Created by the developers of the Genesis package, it is a greatly improved add-on, and continues to go from strength to strength for delivery and reliability.
Velocity is one of the newer add-ons to become available for your Android TV box. It’s included in this list because it’s proving to be extremely stable, easy to use, and comes with a lot of new content. As a plus, for those with young children, there is also a Velocity Kids version, which allows the little ones to choose their own kiddie-safe content.
3. UK Turk Playlists
The UK Turk Playlist is one of the best Android TV box apps for the UK market; with a large range of UK programmes available. Live UK TV, cartoons, movies, and TV shows, as well as integrated streams which allow viewing of major sporting events worldwide.
As they say, there’s nothing like a bit of backup. 1Channel is an app which has been around for a considerable period, and still stands the test of time. It is ideal to run alongside Exodus. Although able to play the same content as Exodus, there is less movie and show information available. None-the-less, it is an excellent, well established app for Kodi.
Another big favourite with Kodi aficionados, Phoenix contains a mass of content. Regularly updated, its developers are responsible for their own sections. Such themes as ‘Her Place’, aimed at the female viewing audience, and ‘Cartoon Crazy’, for the kids, while ‘Woody’, live streams entertainment, news, and sports programmes.
Yes, if you’re a You Tube addict, you can download the app and browse all the content, including YouTube’s live streams, all from the Kodi platform.
If you already have a YouTube account, or should you choose to open one, all your playlists, videos, and subscriptions are available on your channel. This add-on is an official Kodi add-on, and installation needs to be carried out from the Kodi repository.
7. UK TV Again
UK TV, now named UK TV Again, has finally ironed out its old problems, and recently released its latest version 2.0.8.
Developed by Metalkettle, this Kodi app has literally hundreds of channels covering worldwide sporting events, entertainment, kids’ channels, documentaries, music channels, movie, and news channels. With two streams per channel, loss of reception should be minimal.
8. Operation Robocop
Okay, so you’ve already watched the movie. Why the developers chose this particular name, which has nothing to do with the film, but a lot to do with football, is a bit of a mystery. Whatever, Operation Robocop, is probably the best Kodi add-on for Premier League football available.
With an effective maintenance schedule, and regular updates, you should be able to view streams from virtually every Premier League match throughout the season.
Do you have those kinds of nights when you just can’t make up your mind? You’ve scrolled through hundreds of channels, yet nothing takes your fancy. Maybe it’s time to download Veetle.
A totally random array of content, from old TV series, to extreme sports, to film reruns, Veetle can hit you with the unexpected. Just close your eyes, and click.
10. Addon Installer
Maybe a case of saving the best to last, anyone who knows Kodi will know this add-on as the Kodi app store. With the Addon Installer downloaded, all the Kodi apps can be browsed and installed direct from the repository. As a plus, once installed, all apps are automatically updated by the system.
So, there we have it, none of these apps will cost you anything, and in my opinion, they are ten of the best Kodi apps for an Android TV box. Check out our Top 7 Best Android TV boxes where you can make a quick and informed decision on the right entertainment hub for you.
