Kodi is an open-source media player used on Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, Firestick, and Linux platforms to stream all kinds of media. Kodi itself doesn’t stream any of the media. With the help of addons, it pulls and streams media from various sources. With the help of addons (official & unofficial), you can watch all kinds of media including movies, TV shows, live TV, sporting events, kids corner, anime, documentaries, and much more. In this article, let’s look at the steps to install Kodi on MacOS platforms.
Before using Kodi, users must remember the fact that their IP and online activities are visible to the ISPs and Government while using Kodi. If you stream copyrighted content through Kodi, you will end up facing some serious legal issues. To avoid this, you must use a trusted VPN service to mask your internet activities from ISPs, hackers, Government, and many more. On the other hand, VPN also helps you to access geo-restricted media with ease.
