Kodi is an open-source media centre that lets you access popular media TV shows, movies, documentaries, live TV and many more on your device. If you’re a regular user of Kodi, you should be fluent with the specific keyboard shortcuts to makes your Kodi media player efficient and effective. These shortcuts are handy in accessing important functions quickly and easily.
ATTENTION: Before using Kodi, users must remember the fact that your 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 in facing some serious legal issues. To avoid this, you must use a trusted VPN service to mask your internet activities from the ISPs, hackers, Government and many more. On the other hand, VPN also helps you to access the geo-restricted media with ease. We recommend our users to purchase and use NordVPN on their device.
