As a Kodi user I recommend you to use a VPN while you use Kodi to watch movies / TV Series or TV Channels. A VPN will unlock geo-blocked content, unblock sources and keep you anonymous online. I highly recommend the IPVanish VPN because its easy to use and it won’t slow down your internet connection.

Can’t you stream some content?

Most of the times that you get these annoying errors is because the content is geo-blocked. This means that you are trying to access content that is blocked for UK (if you are in UK). For eg if you are trying to watch an american TV Channel.

There is a couple of VPN’s that you can use with Kodi, however, there is only one that stands out as the best VPN for kodi >> IPVanish

best vpn for kodi ipvanish

IPVanish just may be the fastest VPN provider out there, and you need as much speed as possible to stream. There are free VPNs, but they use slow servers and then the streams would be constantly buffering. With IPVanish you will get the best VPN experience available for the most competitive price.

Are VPNs legal?

Yes they are totally legal, you have the right to stay anonymous.

Get the most of Kodi with IPVanish:

  • Unblock Geo targeting to access any content regardless of where you are located
  • Bypass any censorship put in place by websites or streaming providers
  • Stay truly anonymous when streaming content to your Kodi device

    • admin says:

      Hi. Are you talking about the Q-Box led? Well, you have to turn on your box and then, when you get the main screen press the LED button in your remote control until you choose the color you like the most or even disable it. Note that to do this, you cant have the kodi app opened.

    Hi I have got uk Turk playlist and uk tv again and both is not working for sports

    • admin says:

      Hi. The sports streams sometimes dont work or it can be because you are trying to access a geo blocked content, so you may need a VPN.
      The good news is that the community is getting bigger and its coming many awesome addons. Give a try to the filmon addon, the sports streams normally work very well.

      Hi Neil. To stream channels I really recommend you to install UK Turks Live Streams. If you google it you will find tutorials to install it.
      I recommend you to install these addons for kodi too.
