This is the well-known application that I have already mentioned in my articles so for those who don’t want to use a separate app can easily use it as an Addon on Kodi. This amazing addon offers various 150+ live TV channels which are mostly Sports and News related. Instead of this, it offers some none-English channels from various other countries that work like others with no buffering issue at all.
Instead of providing live TV channels Mobdro also offers users an on-demand-video feature so a user can request for the favourite TV show or movie and even for the live tv channel. Everything is categorised and well-maintained you can find Live TV in the Channels section while other content can be found under their category.

Robinhood is another best Kodi Live TV Addon that offers various types of channels including News, Sports, Lifestyle, Health, Documentaries, and so on. This is not as good as other Addons because it doesn’t provide any categories or genre you have to find the channel from the huge list.
It is suitable for both international and only English speaking people as it provides users channels from world-wide. Robinhood TV provides two categories which are Balkan TV and World TV, so open World TV and you will find out all the live TV channels are available. Scroll down and find the relevant channel you want or use the search box to find it easily.

The last and the best Kodi Live TV addon that I would like to mention is the IPTV bonanza, it offers various sorts of TV channels. IPTV Bonanza may have more channels as compared to any other in this list but the reason why it is listed at the bottom is that the design is very poor. However, they don’t offer any category so we can find the relevant channels for us.
Even though they offer country-wise channels so you have to check every country to get the channel of your choice. Another bad thing about IPTV Bonanza is that they don’t even offer alphabetical listing which makes it even complicated while searching for a country or a channel. It was first available on the Kodi repository but now it can be downloaded from a third-party source. You can find various sorts of channels like News, Kids, Sports, Fitness, Health, Cooking and many more.

This is the list of best Kodi Live TV Addons that you can use to enjoy watching your favourite TV channels without paying extra money for a cable connection. Every Addon has its own benefits as well as disadvantages so before using any of them make sure to read about it. Some of them are paid so for this you need a paid membership while others are free but require a free account.
Each Addon has its own requirement that’s why I have mentioned everything that a user needs to know before downloading. Also, please make sure to use the latest Kodi Leia 18.9 otherwise you may face incompatible addon issue as I haven’t tested them on older versions.
