    football ALWAYS buffering on Kodi. any advice

    Banned
    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.

    Sky also pull your pants down.

    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.

    You forgot to mention and bends you over...

    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.

    I'm using an MXQ box hard wired in.

    Really depends i have wookie installed works well but with kodi some streams are just bad. Quite often have to click through a few until you get a nice settled one

    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!

    the second one is tempting.

    Sounds like its your device tbh pal... Get an amazon Tv box

    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.

    ​Yes good! The more people that join Kodi it will go downhill and I won't get a good stream LOL

    To add to the mix, I've used it since it was xbmc back in the day. The best device I've used it on is probbaly my nvidia shield tv, I have fibre bb approx 30mb. And my streams still Buffer. I can't watch low res games anymore. My eyes can't deal. With 8bit football lol
