Has anyone used a Kobie Box for watching TV and movies. Are they any good? Want to get away from Satellite TV too expensive.

Do you mean Kodi? Kodi is a media center released for various different computing platforms. It originally started as XBMP (xbox media player) and then became XBMC (xbox media center) it has since be ported over to many different OS's and took on a new name of KODI. If you want to give KODI a try you can install it on pretty much anything (Android phone/tablet/stand alone tv box, laptop, desktop) It is a free download, once installed you then need to follow some tutorials on installing the SuperRepo repository, from here you can install many of the movie/tv show streaming apps(I currently use 1channel). I use it from time to time, quality can be a little lacking, but hey it is free!

Just want to add, online streaming aside, KODI is the absolute best program for watching any downloaded media on your TV, I have a desktop computer that I built and dedicated to running Windows 10/KODI for watching downloaded media to my big screen tv. I have been using the XBMP->XBMC->KODI platform since it was released many many years ago for the original XBOX.

I got an android tv box for Xmas to run Kodi and like it. It didn't come with instructions on how to actually stream anything so it was a few days of trial and error and I was tempted to sell it on day 2, but I figured it out and now I'm happy I kept I it.

I was concerned that my internet (Bell - not fibre op) in rural PEI might not be up to the task, and it's only barely fast enough. If someone else in the house is watching Netflix I might as well give up as I can't watch anything on the android box at the same time.

I ordered mine on Amazon as it was much less than the ones I've seen advertised on kijiji or for sale locally and the person who recommended it to me suggested I get one at least 2Gigs, which I did.

I've already watched a bunch of tv series that weren't available on Netflix so would consider its been worth the money.

The Piracy Box Sellers and Youtube Promoters Are Killing Kodi

Be careful, some may advertise it to 'replace' cable and whatnot, but don't expect support. Manufacturers are making quick buck off kodi brand.

I've used kodi/xbmc for a long time (5+ years). Great software. Really great at organizing tv shows (remembers what you've watched).
I can use it with hardware to watch tv shows from antenna (cbc/ctv/global) on my computers.

Don't see the curb sellers hurting kodi any more than the name android that is also associated with them being hurt. On the contrary it has done wonders to promote it. Most of these people likely never heard of kodi or xbmc before they bought it anyway. Also there are tonnes of android apps that allow streaming movies and tv shows and even a few available from the microsoft app store.
The best thing to do with kodi is to use it or android by it's self for iptv. Some iptv services are free and some are paid. They work great with a program guide adon. You basically then get cable tv over the internet for free or very little cost and with an excelent guide (some better than your cable etc. provider), not counting your internet connection of course.

Kodi has fast become the leading online streaming solution for millions of streaming fanatics around the world. Attributed to the massive number of video add-ons available to watch movies, TV shows, live TV, sports, documentaries, news etc. Kodi has become a one stop solution for binge watchers.

Some of the best in their category are like.
