For the Bucs and/or NFL...download the directTV Sunday ticket app...find a buddy with directTV and the ticket..use his email and password to sign on the app and BAM. ..you've got Sunday ticket...

I pulled this stunt with my Uncle this year, cost me a case of beer and I paid for half of the ticket...

Small price to pay to able to live in Pittsburgh and watch my Bucs every Sunday..

For Thursday night games, download the twitter app and watch right on your TV instead of your phone...

Sunday ticket is the best option for Bucs games. I'll try it through Kodi instead of phone/laptop/tablet next year.

Idk about college softball, but college football, basketball, NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, you can watch all of those on Kodi. Same thing with shows and movies. I just started now watching Game of Thrones on there. Plus all the seasons from shoes that take forever to go on Netflix get constantly added on there as well.


Kodi is the best option around for TV/Movies, but I haven't found an addon I like for sports. What addon are you using?

Pro Sports. If you have the updated version of kodi, It's been amazing. I watch all the Heat games through it.

Yeah that was happening with my older version as well. Version 17 has been 10x better.

A Comcast rep was telling me that DTV's Sunday Ticket monopoly is being blown up and the league is going to go with a free streaming option instead (making money off platforms). Not sure how true that is but DTV did suspiciously throw 2017 Sunday Ticket Free at me for the first time ever.

NFL and DirecTV have a contract through the 2022-2023 season. Your comcast rep is lying. The fact that he said free streaming should have been a giveaway.

If you ain't lying you ain't trying.

I figured as much, but DTV is in court over it.

$450/350? That's really overpriced for a Kodi box with pirate apps. If you're that desperate to watch new movies for free, go to putlocker or something.

You can watch the same things on any device with Kodi. Amazon fire stick, Apple TV, mi box, etc. All of those are less expensive than that.
