Best Kodi Addons for Sports.

8. Livestream

Livestream is among those addons on Kodi that offer anything and everything including sports channels. You would find live sports channels mostly from Europe and of course, the US. You have access to 9 sports channels including Sportal HD, Park City Television and more. Having said that, keep in mind, Livestream does not have the best reliability as some channels work and some don’t.

9. Livestream

Nevertheless, the addon is quite polished and properly categorized into various sections. Apart from sports, you can access  News and Entertainment channels as well. Not to mention, you can follow the channels which make it easier for you to navigate and manage the score of live TV channels.

NBC Sports is one of the most popular sports channels in the US and you can easily get it running on Kodi.

Moving ahead, with NBC Sports, you will have access to many big sporting events like NFL, Premier League, F1, and more.

10. NBC Sports Live Extra

Apart from that, NBC Sports also offers on-demand content which is just great. Having said that, keep in mind, NBC Sports is geographically restricted which means you can’t use the service outside of the US.

Best Kodi Addons for Kids, Cartoons & Anime

10. South Park

Earlier, there was a Cartoon Network addon for watching Cartoons on Kodi, but it has been deprecated. So now, we are left with very little cartoon content on Kodi. Among the few good ones out there, South Park is one. As the name suggests, South Park is a Kodi addon where you can watch all the episodes of South Park for free.

11. South Park

Of late, the show has garnered immense appreciation for its cartoon characters and storyline. You would definitely love the show for both its seriousness and funny acts. The best part about this addon is that all the seasons and episodes are categorized neatly and you can watch them without any buffering issues.

11. Japanese Animated Film Classics (JAFC)

If you are a fan of anime or Japanese cartoons then you are going to love JAFC on Kodi. The addon is wholly dedicated to bringing some of the oldest and popular anime content on Kodi. For instance, you can watch The Golden Flower, The Lump, A Story of Tobacco, and much more.

12. Japanese Animated Film Classics (JAFC)

Don’t worry, all the anime content and Japanese cartoons come with hardcoded English subtitles so that is great. Not to mention, the addon is available officially on Kodi’s repository which is another bonus point. Simply put, if you are looking for the best Kodi addons for cartoons and anime then JAFC is an easy pick.

Best Kodi Addons for Streaming Music

12. Spotify

Spotify is undeniably among the most popular music streaming platforms and while there’s no official support for Kodi yet, you can utilize an unofficial route to get Spotify running on your Kodi machine. You need to use a third-party repository and from there you can easily install the Spotify addon for Kodi.

13. Spotify

The best bit is that you can log in with your Spotify credentials and get all your music library on Kodi. Apart from that, it supports background music and local syncing with Kod’s library. All in all, Spotify is hands-down the best Kodi addon for streaming music.

  • Install Spotify
  • Compatible with Kodi 18 Leia (currently at Kodi 18.7 Leia) and older versions including Kodi 17 Jarvis.

13. SoundCloud

In case you are unaware, SoundCloud is officially available on Kodi and you can play a large number of music tracks without any issues. As we all know, SoundCloud is one of the oldest popular platforms for sharing music so you get top-notch songs from both new and well-established artists.

14. SoundCloud

Since SoundCloud is more about the indie scene, you can listen to new songs from fresh voices. I would say, more than streaming music, SoundCloud is about discovering new sounds and genres. So go ahead and install SoundCloud on your Kodi to enjoy music streaming.

14. Radio

If you are someone who listens to lots of music through radio then this Kodi addon is for you. Aptly named, Radio offers thousands of radio stations on Kodi, be it local or international. You can search for stations, listen to them in the background, and also save them stations for later reference.

15. Radio

Other than that, radio stations are categorized into several labels including genre, country, and language. To sum it up, Radio is one of the best Kodi addons for streaming music from all over the world and you should definitely give it a try.

Best Multipurpose Kodi Addons

You can browse through the available content or search for something specific. Both movies and TV shows have been clearly listed in the form of sections based on their genre, language, production studio, and also on the basis of their popularity.

Other than that, you can stream the latest movies, including support for direct playback from torrents. The distinctive part about this addon is that it has a variety of 3D and VR-friendly content and all you need is a headset to enjoy these movies or videos. To sum up, Magic Dragon is a powerful Kodi addon for video content and you can’t give it a miss.
