litterally every add on i try and every link just seems to keep buffering. I don't think it's my internet as i'm running with virgin medias top package. Maybe i'm doing something wrong. I wouldn't mind paying a subscription to something if it means flawless football. I know it's free and i should probably just put up with it but i'm just wondering what i could do. When i say buffer i mean it buffers for like 5 mins plays for 2 then goes again.

Paid for services are much better, I've bought a months sub from some guy on Ebay, "angs60", "BulkyIPTV".

Been flawless so far, I will only buy a month at a time though.

What hardware are you using? A colleague was using a Fire stick then bought a Fire TV. He noticed a huge streaming speed difference. His buffering is almost non-existsent.
Also are you wifi or cabled to the router. If Wifi, look into changing wifi channels.

Sky sports with free fibre when your existing contract runs out. Streaming is always going to be slightly hit and miss depending on servers and internet connection

Does your router allow you to set QoS levels? When buffering what is your internet speed like, via say Fast.com for easiness?
It probably is just your build or streaming service but worth ironing out any issues your end.

I've tried the kodi route for years. And I've never had a good stream that didn't buffer. I ended up paying for sky. It's the only fool proof way, or go to the pub for every game!

Kodi is garbage for live sport now too many amazon fire tv ,android boxes and sticks all trying to stream the same thing.Its still ok for tv an movies but if you want reliable streams then IPTV is the way to go but you will need to pay.
