xbmckodi-evolvelogoEvolve Add-on

The Evolve add-on for Kodi has come a long way since I was first introduced to it 2yrs ago. What was once an add-on with great potential, has quickly evolved (pun intended) into one of the best add-ons within the Kodi community. This all-in-one has everything from your favourite television and movies, to documentaries, fitness, live tv, sports, something for the kids, somethings for the ladies, something for just about everyone. Why, just this morning I watched a live pin pong match which I followed up with a live squash match. Yeah! Okay, perhaps not your thing. Fret not, I merely use the obscurity of both those sports to illustrate the power of this add-on. Please note, and I have to say this, this add-on does not have authorization from the copyright holders to stream the content within. Users should note this before installing and consult the streaming laws in your country. As always, I highly recommend you look into getting a VPN. In this day and age, it just makes sense. Without further delay, let’s get into this tutorial.
