Since my initial posting of this in 2017, the cCloud Kodi add-on was one of the best add-ons I’ve seen for live TV and tons of 24/7 streams.
Over the years, its repo has moved around leaving the old add-on to stop working. But, the good news is that the latest version still works as good as ever, and it’s definitely worth having installed on your Kodi.
Update: More recently, in 2019, the cCloud team developed a companion add-on called cCloud TV Guide which is a really nice EPG or TV Guide interface used to navigate channels on cCloud.
If you’re looking for a nice familiar TV Guide for live TV, but free streaming through Kodi, cCloud is the first add-on to try out!
In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to install the cCloud TV Kodi Add-on.
Before we get into it, just a reminder, when using streaming add-ons for Kodi, it’s important to use a VPN. Check out that post to learn my top reasons why you should use a VPN.
Why Use cCloud TV Add-on for Kodi?
While streaming add-ons like Neptune Rising, Incursion, and Magicality are still my personal favorite add-ons for simply keeping up with the latest episodes of my favorite shows, sometimes you just want to turn on a channel and watch whatever is on. Sometimes you don’t want to have to think about what to watch.
That’s where the cCloud TV add-on shines. It has thousands of live channels available to stream. So, if you just want to watch a news channel, a sports channel, or whatever, you can just turn it on here.
It even has a new cCloud TV Guide add-on for a great EPG experience.
In the 24/7 channels section, there are well over 100 pre-made custom channels that are a non-stop stream of random episodes from one show or random movies from one genre.
One reason why these 24/7 streams are so great is because they load really fast! They start playing instantly without any loading or scraping of links, and I haven’t had any of them with any buffering issues.
