Metal Kettle, is a great Repository/3rd Party add-ons that seems to have it all. And by all I mean, the latest in television shows, movies, even live tv. Metal Kettle is a developer who has been around for some time and offers quality add-ons. Please note, this add-on does not have authorization from the copyright holders to broadcast the streams contained within. So long as you understand that, let’s proceed with this tutorial.
