In our “previous” articles, we gave special attention to Kodi and equally talked about IPTV. It’s literally without doubt that Kodi as a media center app ‘shines’ not only for its add-ons support, but ‘ability’ to stream Live TV. This is all ‘thanks’ to IPTV, a new inexpensive “internet protocol television” technology that is “gradually” replacing traditional cable box and satellite dish in many homes. Of course, there are quite a massive variety of IPTV services out there that provides hundreds of channels from sports to wrestling and while most of them are paid, others are free.
The free ones however engage in shadier practices to survive. But even so, they are still being persecuted. A thorough Google search will ‘unveil’ to you that most of the feature-rich Kodi IPTV addons have being shutdown, but some have remained thick, strong and still standing. So if you are a Kodi IPTV user who “thought” copyright holders have “robbed” you off an excellent entertainment tool, then here are the best free Kodi IPTV addons that are still active and working.
1. cCloud TV

It offers an extensive collection of “TV channels” that comes in handy for “streaming” Live TV. Candidly, cCloud TV features over 2,000 HD channels which includes Cartoon Network, ESPN, ABC, NBC, Discovery Channel, Sky and much more.
In addition to this, cCloud provides access to a colossal number of radio stations and you can equally select any of your favourite movies or TV show from a variety of genres and watch them for free.

3. BBC iPlayer (iPlayer WWW)

With tons of ‘on-demand’ contents and specialty in drama and documentaries, you’d agree with me that BBC iPlayer is top-notch. It broadcasts a variety of media including lifestyle, news, current affairs, comedy, movies and reality shows and even though the service is geo-restricted, you can connect to a VPN that has servers located in the UK to enable you watch BBC contents from anywhere in the world.
