Best Kodi player on sale

Very good price

I noooo not more Kodi users...

She cannae take the strain, Captain!

Interesting to see if Amazon price-match this, which could make it £19.99 using the Prime Now app until Sunday anyhow.

Only been using kodi for 6 months and most good links can no longer handle the increased traffic and are closing.

Looks like a pre voice-search remote model.

So kodi easy to download onto these?.. Kind regards x

Do I still need a aeriel plugged into tv to use one of these

​No, just a spare HDMI port on the tv and can be connected via wifi to your Internet.

Complaining about free illegal links, go figure

Lots of the good kodi streams have closed now, Not surprising really.

There is only one gen of stick, all that's different is you can now buy it with the pointless voice control remote as a bundle if you feel the need.

It's the FireTV that has gone second gen.

If anyone really wants voice search, just use the dedicated smartphone app.

It needs USB power, which could also come from your tv, or a phone charger. These do some basic games, but excel at KODI or if you're a Prime customer, Amazon's tv, video and music streaming (plus photos).

these should come down to £19.99

Thats why people who are clueless use the free undependable free builds or purchase "fully loaded" boxes - if you want good dependable HD viewing, you need to pay a subscription.

Because amazon are that generous?! This is probably one of their best selling items which they have no problem selling at £35. You cant even get a 2nd hand one for less than £30. You'll be waiting a few years for that price...

​So much content out there..One closes but others open. I keep up to date via dedicated forums and don't have any issues, but then again I'm interested in this kind of stuff.

This is correct. Free Kodi content is far to unreliable and requires far too much maintenance to be relied on. If you're the sort of person who enjoys researching content and has the ability to regularly maintain then all well and good, but for the majority of users being sold Kodi filled sticks with promises of being able to cancel their Sky TV subscription then it is just nonsense.

orders, though came collect until 16th

Kodi talk aside, these come into their own with a Prime Sub. So much so that I've just cancelled netflix (which in itself is about the price of Prime but with none of the added value).

Does kodi on this support ace stream ? Think you need to install Pegasus?

You're in the wrong place if you're looking for Kodi support.

Thanks, need to Kodi one up for a friend.

There is a new add on which replaced Genesis called Specto. Most of the links seem to work great.
