Kodi is an impressive open source home entertainment platform that is very easy to use, free, powerful and flexible. You can spend endless hours streaming TV, movies, sports, music and many other contents via Kodi.

2) Privacy: Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) knows that you are watching tons of pay-TV for free and that is a real cause of concern.

3) Live TV and sport channels are commonly blocked based on geo-location and you are unable to stream the content.

Congress Allows ISPs to Share Your Private Data Without Permission

The House of Representatives voted Tuesday Mar-28-2017 to repeal Internet privacy protections that were approved by the Federal Communications Commission in the final days of the Obama administration. Under the old rules, internet providers would need to obtain consumer consent before using precise geolocation, financial information, health information, children's information and web browsing history for advertising and marketing. The providers have data on your web browsing history, app usage and geo-location. Providers would also have been required to notify customers about the types of information collected and shared.

By rolling back these regulations, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) now have the legal authority to sell customers’ browsing history and other personal information without their consent. It also releases Internet providers from obligations to increase protections of customer information against hackers and thieves. This ruling will also prevent the FCC from passing any similar rules in the future. The resolution now goes to President Trump's desk. The White House said Tuesday it "strongly supports" the repeal.
