The free TV box,  kodi Media center boxes that get rid of cable
If you have decided to cut the cord from cable TV your options have never been better. The first step in my opinion is to simply get a over-the-air TV antenna since so many channels are broadcasts for free over the air.
 
But what about your favorite TV shows you have been watching on cable TV channels such as Comedy Central, Starz, HBO, the History Channel and so on.
To get these channels is now a very simple process with a media center package called Kodi.
 
What is Kodi?
Kodi (previously called XBMC) is a free media center package that when combined with free add-on/apps turn it into a free way to watch TV shows and movies at any time. All that’s required is the correct hardware and a Internet connection.
 
Types of hardware
Kodi can be run on many hardware platforms from a PC to Apple 2 TV, there are even very cool Raspberry Pi Kodi setups that work very well.
 
But what if you’re not a technophile and don’t want to get into all the technicalities of installing it and setting it up?
 
There will always be some degree a setup required but there are many hardware packages that come with Kodi preinstalled and ready to run.
 
These Kodi TV box sets and android sticks vary in processing speed, memory, and Wi-Fi connectivity.
 
But thanks to the phenomenon that Kodi has become there are a variety of Kodi preloaded hardware packages to choose from.

    I have a preinstalled Kodi on my smart box called MyGica and so do my parents. My parents have the ability to stream tv shows and movies on their smart box but I am not able to do that on mine. My stepfather has tried to fix the problem but the problem was not resolved. Ive tried calling and sending in comments to the company MyGica recently and they were of no help. I really dont have anywhere else to go to ask for help. So please help me get Kodi to start being able to stream tv shows and movies because right now all it does is have files an add-ons which I do not need. All I want is to stream tv shows and movies.

    Okay I’m sorry in advance I’m not a technology expert at all. And just making sure I understood correctly. The android box requires you to purchase a WiFi box to run out, or does WiFi come with it?
    Simpler way of asking:
    Do I have to have WiFi before purchasing or does the box include WiFi?

      WiFi is simply a wireless way to talk to your router which is connected to the internet. A wired connection can also be made bu many dont have wires run to the location needed or want a cleaner look.

      Basically as long as you have a internet connection the box will work WiFi simply uses no wires.

      To be honest with you a android box does require some level of technical ability, especially when used with Kodi. I would suggest using a computer you already have to run it before buying a dedicated box to be sure it is right for you.

    Apologies I am so far from a techie .. just wondering if I can use this box on 2 separate TV’s at once. We currently have a PVR system with one in the family room and one in our bedroom. At present we can each watch separately on both TV’s simultaneously but can only record on PVR and use all the features.

      There is a lot of PVR setups for Kodi I’m unsure which one would work for you. I only use it on one TV, but I dont see why it couldn’t be run to a PVR and broadcast to multiple TVs. It may be best to search YouTube for all the different PVR setups and Kodi to see if one would work for you. Kodi has a forum that would be a good place to ask. http://forum.kodi.tv

      A Kodi box will be capable of a wired or wireless connection. Be sure to check the specifications but most any should.
