Lately a lot of kodi users are complaining about the kodi addons because they can’t open certain streams and normally it takes a long time to kodi pick a stream after jumping many others. Well, there’s nothing wrong with the addons, they just crawl the internet and find you the streams of what you’re looking to watch. Who is actually causing you the troubles is your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Your ISP is Blocking the Streams
Nowadays ISPs (Internet service providers) are taking a lot more effort blocking the sources of that streams. So when you actually select a movie in your favourite movie addon (eg. Exodus, Covenant, Elysium, Specto Fork, etc), kodi will try to open it and your ISP will reject the connection, so kodi jumps to the next source and try to open it again. If your ISP has most of the sources in their black list, it will take a while to open a stream and if they actually have all the sources in the black list, you won’t be able to watch your movie.
In UK, Sky is the ISP that is taking more effort to block streams, BT comes in the 2nd place. Tests showed that SKY blocked 56% of the streams available in these video addons.
How to Unblock all Streams
There is a way to avoid your ISP of blocking your access to certain streams. A VPN it’s a legal software that makes your traffic anonymous, if you use a VPN your ISP won’t be able to see which website / stream you are connecting to, so it won’t be able to reject the connection.
Using a VPN with Kodi unblocks a lot of stuff including Geo-blocked content (eg. choose US country on the VPN and watch live US channels).
Also, even if you don’t have blocking problems, you should always be anonymous if you’re going to stream premium channels, PPV events, sports events, movies and series. You don’t want to receive an intimidating letter from your ISP right?
