Some of these categories further require you to install additional addons like TV-TAP and Swift Streamz.

SportsDevil is regularly featured among the best addons to watch live TV on Kodi. It has a huge collection of channels from nearly all the places in the world. The name of the addon suggests that it is all about sports. It is true that a big portion of SportsDevil is dedicated to sports. Its main screen features two separate sections for sports – Live Sports & Sports TV. However, there is more to SportsDevil than just sports.
There is a ‘Live TV’ section, which further has a ‘ShadowsNet.ro (World TV)’ category. The World TV part of this addon lets you explore live TV channels from the USA, UK, Germany, Italy, France, and more.
You can install SportsDevil from Kodil Repository. You might also discover that SportsDevil is part of almost all the other major repositories including Supremacy, Maverick, UKTurk Addon Repository, etc. But, Kodil seems to have the latest version of this addon and that is why it is the best source to install SportsDevil from.
J1TV addon offers plenty of options to stream live TV from all over the world, including top English channels.
The main screen of the addon displays numerous categories in which various channels are sorted.
While there are multiple categories to choose from, not all of them necessarily work. You may run into a YouTube error in many of the home screen categories. You will need to try different categories to check which one works for you.
It is recommended that you turn on the VPN as some channels do not work without it.
