The Sportie add-on comes courtesy of the ECHO Repository/3rd Party Add-on. Yet another great resource for streaming live sporting events. Not only does Sportie provide links to live sports events by channel, it further sub-categorizes the list by UK, USA, Arabia and TV LIST for the full list. Without further delay, let’s proceed with this tutorial.
Note: If you are unfamiliar with installing a repository/3rd party add-on in the new version of Kodi aka. Krypton v17, please check out my visual install guide Krypdon v.17 HERE
From the home screen navigate to;
- System (icon top left corner)
This is your System menu window with a much different look from previous xbmc/kodi versions. From the 11 menu items to choose from, locate and select the folder that says
- File Manager
On the Right Panel scroll down and select the menu item that says;
- Add source
Insert the following path exactly as it’s written in the field provided;
- Click ok
Name this Repo .ECHO and select ok
Navigate back to your home screen and select;
Select the box icon @ the top left of your screen
- Install From Zip File
From the list, select .ECHO
Select the file that says
If you were successful with installing this Repository, you will get an Add-On Enabled icon the top right corner of your screen. Be patient as this may take a few minutes.
- Install from repository
Scroll down and select
- ECHO Repository
- Video add-ons
- Sportie for live sports streams by channel
And while you’re here, if you have not yet installed the following live television streams, you might as well…
- .Excalibur Streams (live television streams)
- f4mTester (if you have yet to install this)
- SportsDevil for live sports streams (sorted by stream and event)
- Teevie for live television streams by channel
In each instance, once you select the add-on you wish to install, the install window will open. Select the Install icon in the bottom right corner of your screen
Note: If your install is successful, you will receive an add-on enabled/update in the top right corner of your screen. Be patient, this may take a minute or two
Once you’ve completed installing the add-ons from Step 14, navigate back to your Add-ons Browser window and select
- Video Add-ons
Look for the Sportie icon and select it. You will do the same for .Excalibur Streams, f4mTester, SportsDevil and Teevie if you installed those add-ons as well.
That’s all there is to it. I hope this was helpful. All the best!
