If you are reading this post, then of course you are Kodi Lover . Sometimes running kodi is not just enough. You ought to have some good IPTV add-ons to enhance your IPTV viewing. Also they add new functionality to your setup.
Well you don’t have to worry much about which all Kodi IPTV addons you need to install on your Kodi.
We have got that hard work done for you and compiled a list of 10 best iptv addons for kodi, that you can try.
So, What is an IPTV Add-on ?
An addon is basically a small piece of software, that user can add to either enhance the functionality of the current running program or add more functionality to the program. The way you have them on chrome or mozilla browser, that same way you have IPTV addons for Kodi.
It allows you to add functionality like collecting feed of your favorite channels, customising the kodi, making custom playlists and many more. All you have to do is just install the IPTV addon and that’s it.
In the list below we have some of the best iptv for kodi that you can start using right now.
But before we jump onto the list, let me tell you what factors we took care of while choosing the best ones for kodi.
The below mentioned things are the ones which we paid the most attention too, while preparing the list:
- Number of IPTV channels offered – This is something very obvious. Not everybody would be interested in the came channels, so it was a necessity to have large number of channels to satisfy everyone’s need.
- Reliability of the streams – Again a very obvious thing!!
- Number of countries/languages offered – Majority of the people are interested in watching streams either of their native region or of their native language. Now we need to make sure that it fits in every situation.
- Ease of menu navigation – Of course, no matter how much good an addon for kodi is ? If you can’t gain access to its feature or functionality it’s of no use. So ease of navigation has to be there.
- Variety of options – Do they only serve movies ? or Do they only offer sports ?
So now let’s start reviewing some of the best iptv addons.
#1. cCloud TV Addon: Best IPTV Kodi 2018
If you have ever come across IPTV add-ons then you must have heard the name of cCloud TV Addon. It is one of the best iptv add-ons that you would have ever used. It has huge libraries of channels that you will ever come across.
You will find channels of almost all the genres, be it sports, movies, news channels etc. The best thing about cCloud TV is it’s ease of navigation and sorting through thousands of channels. It also has On-Demand movies and sports section. Though it doesn’t have a lot of content in it but still its satisfactory.
Our Take: Best iptv addon for kodi for anyone who is looking to have IPTV on Kodi.
#2. Sportie: Best Kodi Addon for Live Sports
As the name suggest, its all about sports. Few years back sportie was dead, but it had come up again and is better than it was ever before.
A newly added feature in sportie is its ability to pull feed directly from reddit for maor of your sports events, a similar function that was available in another add-on names Pro Sport but this sportie has taken a step ahead of it by pre-configuring it with all the subreddits you need to grab feeds of major sports events. You can even have the recording of the recent games
Our Take: One of the best kodi addons for live sports viewing. A must have add-on for every sports enthusiast.
#3. BBC iPlayer: Best Free IPTV Kodi Addon
BBC iPlayer is one of the best free iptv for kodi to give you access to all the live streaming content on BBC. The quality of the content streaming channels is high. Also the sound quality is also good.
Well you don’t have to worry about the new content for you to watch because content will be coming directly from the official site of BBC. With good things comes bad things too. Only the people living in Britain have the access to the channels, all you need is a TV license..and only british residents have access to all its features
Our Take: Good plugin for BBC lovers and also a good one for british residents.
#4. USTV NOW
Just like UKTV NOW..USTV NOW is one of the most favorite add-ons for the people living in USA and also for the USA expats. The best thing about this add-on is, it gives you access to 7 basic channels (ABC, CW, CBS, Fox, PBS, NBC and My TV) for lifetime once you have installed the addon on your kodi setup. If you need cable channels then you need to pay $24. Once you have paid for the subscription you will get access to channels like CNN, SyFy, History, Fox News and others.

The best thing about USTV NOW is that you don’t have to worry about the legal issues of streaming content via this addon because it abides by all the laws with respect streaming rights.
Our Take: Best addon for US expats and also for the people living in USA
You might haven’t heard this name ever before. Despite of the good video and sound quality, hardly anyone know about this kodi iptv addon. You would find almost everything that you ever wish to stream.
But the plus point about this add-on is that it not only streams the content but also provide you with live cam feeds from all over the globe. Talking about this single feature of providing live cam feed have insane amount of benefits and loss too. With the help of this, people can widespread messages for various campaign or social drives. Also public speakings can also be organised by simply sitting in front of your television.
With good things come bad things too. You need to super cautious about these live cam feeds as everybody around the globe will have access to your live video. It can also be misused.
Our Take: Keeping everything aside…Nemesis is a good to have addon for your kodi.
#6. Kodi live TV : Best For Live TV Kodi Streaming
Kodi Live TV is been into this since a long time and also one of the best iptv addons for kodi available for free of cost. It has streams for many countries available in many languages. This includes stream in: Italian, French, German, English, Turkish, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Romanian, Greek, Polish. Not only this it also streams music.
All these features free of cost.
#7. Skynet : Another Good Free IPTV Kodi Addon
No!! Not terminator one !!!
Skynet network is really huge. It’s one of the best and most bulky add-on for kodi. Skynet is filled with lots of content like : movies, sports events, tv shows, tv serials, 4k quality content, documentaries and lot more. I can guarantee that you won’t feel boredom as it has so much of exciting unique content on it.
It is also combined with top kodi add-ons like Dojo Streams, Silent Hunter, Maverick TV and Supremacy.
Our Take: If you are any random guy or gal living in either United Kingdom or United States Of America and want to watch IPTV channels for free, then is the must have plugin for you.
VidTime is very easy to install and allows you to stream your favorite content without any hassle. It allows you to watch tv shows, movies, sports events, USTV Now and many other things too.
You can download this addon from fusion repository but if you already have fusion repository installed on your kodi device then you can simply install it from there.
Our take: Good to have add-on
#10. UKTV NOW : Best UK Kodi IPTV Addon
You remember USTV NOW ? If you like it then you will definitely like this one too. UKTV NOW is owned by Metalkettle repository. UKTV NOW has around 250 channels from countries like USA, UK and India. If you live in any of these countries then you must check out this addon. It has a huge list of channels and you can even watch some live tv channels.
It is owned by Metalkettle Repository. They keep providing regular updates to it which makes it more secure to use.
#11. Goodfellas 2.0 Kodi 17
Goodfellas add-on is very much similar to UKTV NOW, Vidtime and USTV NOW but not that much good enough. Though Goodfellas kodi is a free IPTV addon despite of that fact, It has a huge of list of channels to stream from all over the globe. Not only this it also find the webcams that are publicly available all over the globe and stream their feed right on your television set.
Goodfellas 2.0 Kodi 17 has some channels for kids too like you can stream Disney and Cartoon Network which kids love to watch. Also it has a category to stream live channels like CNN, FOX News, CNBC and many more.
The quality of the stream is awesome though it may sometime go down for few minutes but still it is one the best options for kodi addons available to download for free and to enjoy with.
iTV is very much similar to BBC iPlayer as it offer both Live tv streaming and On-demand content from the United Kingdom. Though iTV doesn’t have much to offer you but still you can consider to add it in you repository because it also streams a lot of famous american tv shows. If you are a fan for american tv shows and want to watch them for free then you must consider installing iTV.
Also other plus point about iTV is that, it is run by major broadcasting giants and don’t violate any laws of piracy and streaming content. It is a licensed product and also won’t run into any hosting issues the way independent addon creators run into sometimes
#12. Made In Canada IPTV
This is one of the most deceiving Kodi IPTV addon we have ever come across.
Though the name says Made In Canada but it has wide variety of channels from countries like USA, UK and of course Canada. The database of channels is quite huge and we think you won’t miss on any major channel. The video and sound quality of the stream is also good.
Majority of channels are from USA, UK and Canada. Though the menu and the UI of the interface could have been much tidier but the way channels are categorised based on countries is acceptable.
Sounds cool ?
Though the name may sound cool. But Sylvr has just got some basic functionalities. With only few dozens of channels and that too of not much wide variety, Sylvr isn’t something that can be you premier choice for the one of the best iptv addons for kodi. So may consider it having it as a backup..if in case you core on’t don’t work someday
As far as the ease of use and the quality of the stream is concerned Sylvr is a good iptv add-on that you can consider to have at your end.
Our Take: It can work as a good backup iptv add-on when your core ones are not working.

How to Configure Kodi Add-ons ?
Though most of the add-ons come with predefined perfect settings to work synchronously with your kodi setup but still there would be some that will require special settings to done like logging into your account or something else.
Not taking those special cases into account here’s how you can configure any plugin:
- First go the add-ons page
- Click on the addon that you want to configure
- Press “S”
- A popup will show up
- Click on “Settings”
- Now you will be shown the current settings of that addon
- Change the settings as per your requirements.
Note: Settings for all the add-ons will be different. So it’s not possible to discuss everything here. Also whenever you make any changes in the settings. Keep having a look at how the setup looks. By doing so you will be able to track the changes and also will be able to revert them back if anything went wrong.
What if the add-on is not working : Tackling Down the Functionality Issues of an Add-on
A particular add-on is not working ? Well if you ever happen to encounter the problem. Then go to the official Kodi forum. If you have found the addon from the kodi repository then there are good chances that the developer had created a thread to address such issues.
Generally this thread contain information about the bugs in the current version, temporary fixes for that and also about the near future updates or version of the add-on. So you can get your problem solved out from the thread. Atleast most of the times.
But if you didn’t found any thread then Sign Up on the forum and create one. Community will help you to find the solution for your problem.
If you haven’t install the Kodi IPTV add-on from kodi repository and had used some third party repository, then don’t just go and bluntly ask for the solution unless you see an existing thread over there. Either go find the forum where the discussion is going on for that add-on or find some alternative to it.
If you wish to install add-ons from a third party repository on kodi then follow the steps:
- Enable third party repository by clicking on System > Add On and then enabling “Unknown Sources”
- Download the zip file for the repository, on the same device where your Kodi is installed
- Click on the addons option on the main menu.
- Click on the little box, given on the left side. After that you will be bought up a screen where you can install you zip files
