You can get Kodi in all shapes and sizes. What I mean is that you can buy Kodi boxes, you can use Kodi add-ons, Kodi TVs, and Kodi applications.

Without wasting too much of your time, let’s talk about what Kodi is.

Kodi is an open source (and completely free) software specially designed with home entertainment as its focal point. The fact that Kodi is a home entertainment application makes it perfect for fans of films, sports, movies, and TV shows.

One thing you might not know about the Kodi application is that it was initially designed for the Microsoft Xbox. As a matter of fact, Kodi was originally called Xbox media centre. Thanks to the interest users have gained in this application, it has evolved over time and has even created the community of its own of both developers and fans.

One exciting thing about Kodi is that it is managed by a non-profit foundation known as the XBMC foundation, unlike other companies like Plex and Chromecast. Cody is constantly being upgraded by plenty of developers and coders all around the globe.

Kodi was created originally in the year 2003, Kodi has been designed by over 500 software developers and hundreds of translators. This means that you are now offered the opportunity to customise Kodi by installing free add-ons to suit your needs and personality.

One belief people have is that could you were specially designed for laptops but no this app can work on literally anything from your amazon fire TV stick to your little smartphone.

What videos can you watch on Kodi?

Get ready to transform your smartphone computer or tablet into a digital setup box or streamer using Kodi. This application is one that gives users the ability to stream thousands of files from the internet, local storage, and a home network.


You probably already know so much about other tv streamers like chromecast, Amazon fire tv stick, and apple tv. However, Kodi is a lot different from these tv streamers because it is not held back by licensing, neither is it curated by the app store. What this means, is that you are allowed to download a variety of community made addons or application and view whatever footages you like.

When you use Kodi, it is easy for you to browse through your content because of its purpose-built to UI. the developers of the coding software created a specific feature which they called the “10-foot UI”.

What this feature does is to allow Kodi to be readable from as much as 10 feet away. Special thanks to a variety of built-in codes people can browse photos videos and podcasts easily and quickly with their Kodi application.

One question a lot of people have asked is whether Kodi performs excellently on small devices as it does on big screens. Well, the answer is yes! You can experience the same amazing effect on your small devices as you will on your big tv screen.

What devices are compatible with Kodi?

You don’t have to worry about what devices could he would work perfectly with because it was created in such a way that it is easy to download and compatible with Android, OS X, windows, and even Linux.

The process of using Kodi is slightly more complicated if you use iOS what this means is that if you are an iPhone user, your phone has to be jail broken before you can download Kodi. However, there is amazing news for uses of the raspberry pi microcomputer because Kodi was designed to be compatible with this device.

Is Kodi illegal?

Kodi is nothing close to being an illicit streaming device. Which means it is completely legal for your use in its standard form running official application.

When any device is considered illegal or illicit what it means is that the device is being used to view content or shows without the copyright owner’s permission. This is a crime, and it can be committed in different ways; either by watching it at a friend’s place, using a smart-tv, or using a software or hardware, or watching it with your laptop, phone or tablet without seeking permission.

One other thing you should understand is that a lot of add-ons might contain content that is not officially licensed so when you access such content using these add-ons, it will be considered illegal. At that point, it becomes your responsibility entirely to follow the laws applicable to your country when it comes to the use of these devices.

Installing Kodi on your android tv is an amazing way to watch all the wonderful contents you’ve always wanted to see on a big screen. So, in our next article, we’ll be talking about how to install Kodi on your android tv.
