Choosing the right streaming application is the only required thing to be able to watch Live TV and Sports without subscribing any IPTV service and TvTap is an excellent addon based on the homonymous Android app, that you can install on your Kodi.
This guide will show you how to install the TvTap Kodi addon. The guide is accompanied by screenshots, and it can be used to install the addon on Firestick/ Fire TV, Android TV, Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, Nvidia Shield, and any other device that supports Kodi.
TvTap Kodi addon has been adapted from the popular TvTap android app that can be also installed on Firestick and other Android devices. The addon specializes in Live TV, and it presents hundreds of channels that let you stream live and free.

The Sports category is the most impressive, and it lets you watch almost all popular sports channels from Europe, USA, Middle East, and other regions. Available sports include Football, Boxing, WWE, NFL, NHL, MBA, TENNIS, and more.
Be Careful! ⚠
Kodi lets you watch lots of content for free, but you can easily land in trouble for the same. This is because TVTap and other third-party Kodi addons usually provide streams, that are mostly illegal.
Whenever you are streaming, your IP address is usually visible to your ISP, and they usually share this data with the government and copyright agencies. This is the reason why many Kodi users have ended up receiving DMCA notices. Further, ISPs are now blocking Kodi repositories to discourage the installation of illegal Kodi addons.
The only way you can avoid all this mess is by using a private and secure VPN for streaming.
