Kodi is an open-source home theater software, with an extensive add-ons library. However, access to some of the content and add-ons is restricted to certain countries, regions and some of the streaming services might be blocked by your ISP, for example, add-ons meant for US-only content are not available if you’re located outside of the US.
How does VPN help you gain access to restricted or blocked Kodi content?
IP address is provided by your ISP and its used to determine your location. By using a VPN, you can change your IP to be virtually located anywhere in the world, as long as the VPN service provider has a server available there. It makes you anonymous and using your device will be much safer on its own as most spyware requires your IP address.
What are the benefits of using a VPN for Kodi?
- Your ISP won’t be able to block you from using specific add-ons and streaming tv channels and shows.
- Unblocking geo-locked add-ons by connecting to a server of that specific country. For example, you can set your VPN to connect to a server located in the US and watch live US TV channels.
- Privacy and security. No one will be able to track what you’re streaming or doing on the internet.
