How to get Kodi?

I personally recommend using a Xiaomi Mi Box.
Kodi is a 100% free plugin, supported by a community of developers.
Best Kodi Add-On’s For New Zealand
Most of these apps are created by reputable developers and your username and passwords are securely encrypted and won’t be seen by them at all.
With that said, ensure you protect yourself by choosing a password that is completely different from your email password for security.
1. Spark Sports Kodi Add-On
With the rugby world cup just around the corner, Spark Sports couldn’t even launch their own apps for most Android TV’s in time. A lone ranger, called Matt Huisman managed to create a Kodi plugin for Spark Sports within a few months.
You’ll need an activate Spark Sports account, so sign up for your free trial.
Next download the Spark Sports Kodi Add-On and you’ll get all the same great content on any device.
Currently Spark Sports don’t have apps for their service on TV brands such as Sony, LG or Hisene so with this Kodi Add-On you don’t need to wait for them to get their act together.

Want to watch Bein Sports on your TV or media player of choice? Well now you can with the Kodi Add-On for their platform.
You’ll need an account, but you can get rid of Sky if you want their app on your big screen TV, using your internet connection and any android player.
Once you’re ready, download the Bein Connect Kodi Add-On.
Quality is exactly the same as if you were to use their smartphone app and cast to your TV, except it’s far more reliable.
It’s also much easier to find what you’re looking for with one long list of streams and replays.
3. Kayo Sports Kodi Add-On
Kayo Sports is like Spark Sports but on steroids. It’s also available to Australian internet users only but with a VPN you can easily bypass the geo restriction put in place.
Creating a Kayo Sports account is quite tricky as you require a local phone number for activating the account however following this guide can show you how to deal with that situation.
Once you’ve got an account, downloading the Kayo Sports Kodi plugin is a piece of cake and you’ll be able to stream over 25 different sports easily.
4. Foxtel Now Kodi Add-On
If you consider the price you’d pay for satellite TV, Foxtel Now is far cheaper and offers a ton of content. For under $40 per month you can get their lifestyle and sports packs which include over 50 sports and a dozens news and lifestyle channels.
Again, you need an Australian Internet connection, so buying a VPN is a smart idea and will bypass the geo restrictions put in place in seconds.
