An Introduction to Kodi and Xumo.TV
First, let me give you a quick overview of what exactly Kodi is and how Xumo fits in.
What is Kodi?
Kodi is a free, open-source media center application. It brings all your digital media together into one place for easy access.
You can use Kodi to watch and record live TV, listen to podcasts and music, view photos, play retro video games, and more.
But what really makes Kodi special are add-ons. These are like apps for your Kodi device that let you expand what you can do.
There are thousands of add-ons available, from major streaming apps like Netflix to niche content libraries and tools.
This flexibility and customization is what makes Kodi such a popular platform, with over 30 million monthly active users worldwide.
What is Xumo.TV?
Xumo.TV is one of the best Kodi add-ons for on-demand and live streaming.
It offers over 190 digital channels covering movies, TV shows, sports, news, kids programming, and more. This includes both Xumo‘s own content as well as programming from other digital networks.
And the best part? It‘s completely free! Xumo is ad-supported, but you won‘t pay a dime to enjoy all this entertainment.
Xumo is available as a standalone app on various streaming devices. But it‘s also available as a video add-on within Kodi, which lets you integrate all those great channels directly in your Kodi setup.
