For those of you who are hearing about these fancy names for the first time, let me give you a heads up. Here we are with the simple explanation to install KODI on Roku.
Kodi is a free and open source software which is extremely flexible and runs on various platforms – Linux, Operating System X, Windows, iOS as well as Android. With the help of Kodi, you can play streaming media like videos, music, podcasts as well as digital media files from the local network and the internet. Another remarkable advantage of Kodi is that it lets you install various third party plug-ins that give you access to freely available content available on the internet. Thus, Kodi is easy to download and offers an affordable way of viewing streaming media in the comfort of your home.
On the other hand, Roku is a streaming device that can convert your rudimentary television into a high definition smart TV and you can easily view your favorite over-the-top content in the form of channels. Roku even enables you to watch movies, TV series and other videos from popular services such as Amazon Video, Google Play Movies and TV, HBO, Netflix, Pandora Radio, PlayStation Vue, WWE network and YouTube. With the latest Roku 4, you can even stream 4K content onto your TV. You must be wondering – What would happen if you could combine the benefits of Kodi and Roku? These two get along like a house on fire and open up a plethora of options for viewing high quality streaming videos.
The process of installing Kodi on Roku is a bit tedious, but we have broken it down into simple and coherent steps to make it convenient for you.
