How To Setup IPTV on Kodi Using PVR Client

ezgif.com gif maker

A lot of people, myself included, started their cord-cutting journey using Kodi. I remember back in 2015, I would set up various addons on Kodi to watch movies. The addons were gradually overtaken by time, but Kodi still maintained a place close to my heart.

I eventually switched to using Kodi as a media organizer for my local content, but today we will be looking at how to set up IPTV on Kodi using a PVR client.

IPTV on Kodi

Kodi is a free, open-source media player that is developed by the XBMC Foundation. XBMC stands for Xbox Media Center, a media player designed for the earlier versions of the Xbox gaming console. Kodi is fantastic for organizing and indexing local content from a USB drive or Network-attached storage, but it can also be used for IPTV by using a PVR client.

Read on to find out how to set up IPTV on Kodi.

What you will need for this tutorial

For this tutorial, you will require the following:

  • Any Android, Windows, iOS, Linux, macOS, tvOS, or FreeBSD platform. (You can see just how versatile Kodi is based on the number of supported platforms).
  • IPTV Service provider: Feel free to use any provider of your choosing.
  • An internet connection.

Features

The most significant selling point of Kodi is the fact that it is open-source. This enables third-party developers to create addons that piggyback on the Kodi platform, and therein lies its true power. Odds are any functionality that you need has already been developed by someone as an addon.
