Found 29th Dec 2017
this is a bit 'niche'. just put kodi in search on xbox one store and Voila!
Havent tried it myself yet but will look over next few days.
As of today 10 Jan they have temporarily taken this unstable beta version off the store. The newest and stable version will be in the store in a few days

Little heads up on this freebie (yes, it's always been free, but...) Kodi is now available on Xbox One. There are a few limitations in this early release build which I'll highlight below from the Kodi website, but I thought this was definitely worth a share.


What are the current limits?

What you should really understand and keep remembering is that it is still in early stages of development and has very rough edges, might not be as stable as the regular version and may even be missing some functions. Due to the nature of how UWP works our hands are tied in some areas. Some parts are not even finished yet and our developers are still working on getting it up to the regular standard. As of this writing there’s limited access to only what’s part of your Video and Music folders. Network support is limited to only NFS:// shares. No access to the Blu-ray drive to start the disc or even an attached storage drive. There might still be problems with certain general python modules that are used by add-ons and we are finding and reporting them to the developers as testing progresses. I’m sure there’s more that might not work as intended yet as there are so many features it just will take a while to go over them. We cannot promise to what extend we can get every feature working as it all depends on what is available to us developers.

still won't buy an xbox over ps4


Ok, thanks for letting us know.
That sounds great. Now you can have a load of hassle with your Xbox, as well as your TV, your dodgy STB, your phone...

Anyone know if this is available on PS?

Was going to post it earlier. Confirmed working from app part of the store at version 18 (alpha).
I am a little confused why moderator put this under discussions though.. surely this would be a good deal for anyone considering Kodi? oh well

Yup, got fond memories of XBMC back in the day, having to learn how it worked and having to rename thousands of files and folders so that the scrapers could read them correctly!
Xbox one s, is looking to be a nice all rounder

It is absolutely rapid!! Cant believe this is available... Hardnox here I come!
It installed just fine, and then I installed the official plex addon for kodi. I tried to run this addon and it failed.

I'm really surprised it's even available to install as the kodi team cited the need to remove or change 800 things to get it in the microsoft store, which you can read here: kodi.tv/art…ere

The scrapers are only as good as the database creators/editors and when you've got one creator/editor who seems to act like a German WWII leader (yes him (not Himmler)) and thinks his way of series/episode titling is the only way whilst 99% of the other "users/members" thinks he (I say he but I'm only guessing) is wrong and he will not edit/amend/substitute/add to facilitate the 99% - what chance have you got of finding the scraper will add those episodes to your kodi database.

Rant over

Not at all like you to be slow on tech deals
Don't say Voila.
Shame this never came to the 360. Still using XBMC on my original xbox here
What add-ons are considered decent, still using exodus and works well for me, used covenant and seems the same but a hand back up.

Any others? Not interested in sport.

Neptune rising. It’s the new and improved version of exodus.
Have fun setting up vpn on a switch or your router for your Xbox one...
I’d bite to kodi on Xbox if I could install vpn directly on the Xbox. Easier to stick to fire tv or another android device with kodi and vpn on it

They’ve all been deleted. Did you do that so you can claim the heat?
Oh this is interesting, can you install stuff on it like the modules or is that locked at this time?

Interesting - ta. Not sure why it's in Misc. Looks like a free app to me, much in the same way a Android or iOS app would be presented.

Thanks for the link

I wouldn't even think to look in Misc for a free app, Deeky
The irony of a media player with roots in the original Xbox Media Centre (XBMC until around version 13 or so) only just making it to the latest XBOX

It would be nice if you could just search 'Xbox kodi' in the search bar and get some results.
Finally kodi in Xbox.. What a time to be alive
