    Would highly recommend Sportsmania. I paid about 20 quid for 3 months. Hasn't let me down for one game. Quality is great.

    nbc live extra is free. Some lads use the free unclogger vpn and say it works well. Unclogger slows my fast connection to a crawl so I haven't used it.

    Using unclogger is simple. Download it from play store and go it to the app and click on it before going into xbmc.

    In terms of paid VPNs I've heard Private Internet Access is good.

    nbc live extra has all premier league games I think. I like sportsmania as it has all the sports I want to watch. They take requests too and have a VOD section.

    I was using unclogger but it was very poor for the Burnley game last Wednesday, going to give tunnelbear a try this Saturday during the 3 o clock games and if it's good I'll take out a sub.

    Stael's been around for a long time,unless it has dramatically improved it never struck me as being particularly good.
    NBC sports extra is the best I've seen for picture quality.
    Hammy on navi x is good too.

    I have both of these. In terms of free streams they are very good. Staeel has improved a lot. His section lists saturday 3 o'clock games too and I've found he usually has a reliable stream. Commentary is sometimes foreign but the picture is usually good. vdub25 is very good as far as free streams go too.

    Fluteing around with Stael here at the mo and all 4 EL games are on it,foreign commentary but the picture is spot on.
    I see Rafa is still sucking them red sweets.:)
    3 o clock on Saturday will be the big test for it.

    Sports 1 channel on hammy is spot on for our game tonight.
    You'll find it in the navi x add-on.

    Just looking for a little help. I bought a minix neo x5 box last summer and I never go around to actually configuring XBMC on it to view some free channels etc.

    Other than the usual google hits, would anyone have any details (on or offline) on a simple "how to" guide that they have used themselves? Much appreciated!

    Is xbmc already on your box bren?
    If not you'll have to go on to the browser on your box and download the android version from the kodi website.
    After that follow this video,good few decent addons on this..

    Genesis for movies and TV shows. Cartoon HD I believe is good for kids shows.
    For sports the Phoenix add on is good. In Phoenix Staeel 2014 has some good stuff under live tv. Vdub25 shows good quality sports under the live sports section. Robin hood list and AAA streams are popular too. If you want to spend a few quid for high quality streams I'd recommend sportsmania. You sign up at sportsmania.eu and its about 20 euro for three months. It has every game and I've never been let down by it.

    For all of these you'll need to add the fusion repository as well as the mettlekettle and xunitytalk ones. Again youtube will help here.

    I got one of those android boxes £50 a couple of weeks ago, someone done me a tutorial to get NBC sports for the live games and now it just says disabled every time I try it, no luck with anything here. Is their a way to uninstall or reset the thing to get rid, it was that free unclogger VPN thing i installed whatever.

    Anyone know about OPENBOX? Just trying one for the first time, and although every channel is available, the Box Office keeps saying "scrambled", and I was hoping to have it working for Mayweather/Pacquiao.
    Do I maybe need to do a firmware update, or is that just the way these particular boxes operate...all available channels apart from Box Office?
