Editors' Review

Kodi (previously XBMC) is a media player that can stream across your local network, with extensions for popular services like Spotify, Pandora, and Youtube. XBMC gives you access to tons of TV shows, movies, and other media, and it also allows you to play DVDs, all through one intuitive interface. Once you have the program set up, you can just sit back and flip through the various sections to find the entertainment of your choice.

Pros

Add-on categories: To customize this program to suit your needs, you'll have to select the add-ons you want. This process is streamlined by the way the app breaks different options up into categories that include Music, Video, and Pictures. Each of these categories contains tons of options for accessing free content of all kinds.

Extras: In addition to the normal media options, this app also contains some fun extras. These include things like a Movie Quiz program, Lazy TV, and Last Episode, which all serve to enhance your viewing experience and add depth.

Cons

Setup time: It does take a bit of time to set up this app and select all of the add-ons you want since there are so many options. Once you have made all of your selections, though, the app is very easy to navigate.

Bottom Line

XBMC gives you a lot of options for free TV, movies, and music to enjoy. The program, itself, is completely free as well, and the quality of playback is quite good.
