If you ask many Kodi users, they’ll recommend you use a VPN. Now Kodi itself isn’t illegal, neither are many addons, but some addons do include some content, usually movies, TV shows and music which would infringe copyright laws being streamed. Whether people use Kodi like this is their choice, we don’t condone it, but let’s face it, many people do it nowadays.
Last week (Jan 23rd 2017) top UK ISPs announced they will start sending warning letters to customers using “kodi boxes”. Now, how they plan to monitor this remains to be seen because an android TV box with Kodi on isn’t illegal. Selling an android box which has Kodi and addons with illegal content is a grey area because it’s the action of watching/listening to this copyright content with authorisation is illegal. Either way, you could still get a letter even if you use Kodi completely legally. So a VPN is a good way to go. A VPN stands for virtual private network, putting it basically, it hides your internet connection and also hides what you use your internet for. A VPN is perfectly legal to use.
We’re not saying you should use a VPN to hide yourself to watch illegal content, but it’s a good service to have either way, especially in this age of cyber spying.
I use IPVanish, it’s reasonably priced, easily configurable and is very fast.
