Requirements

  • MaxMustermann’s Addons Repo (available through Fusion)
  • Mortstar’s XBMC Addons
  • Navi-X Program Addon

1. Navi-X Program Addon
Among other things, the Navi-X program addon for XBMC is great for watching live television, whether it’s sports, local channels or international channels. To watch sports, you’ll probably want to Launch “XBMC” then go to “PROGRAMS” -> “Navi-X” -> “Navi Xtreme Media Portal” -> “Navi-X Networks” -> “Live TV (xbmc only)” -> “Sports-X Live Sports” and then choose your desired stream.

2. Veetle Video Addon
People stream whatever it is they are watching at any given time through Veetle. This means that generally you’ll find most sporting events available within Veetle. Some may work, some may not, quality may differ so play around with it.
