Tutorial – How to Install the NEW SportsDevil App

SportsDevil mostly broken

UPDATE: 04/11/18: SportsDevil has had issues since it’s most recent update. Most of the links from pretty much all providers are broken. However, I have recently been able to view some MLB games in SportsDevil using the Dimsports provider. Your mileage may vary, though.

I am actively researching other sports add-ons as recommended by other website as well as the Addons4Kodi subreddit. When I find some (or one) that offer the relative ease of use and quality of links that SportsDevil used to offer, than I will feature them here.

UPDATE 12/17/17: The newest version is now available from numerous respositories. One of the best is the Kodil – or Kodi Israel repository. Make sure you add this repository as it will update many of your already installed add-ons to their latest version.

SportsDevil is a popular add-on due to all the links to live sporting events that it offers. There is a SportsDevil Repository that is pre-installed if you purchased your Media Center from us. Otherwise, you could install SportsDevil from the Kodil repository. See my post here about how to go about that.

This add-on is not supported by the Kodi Team or the XBMC foundation. Please do not post questions on the forum.kodi.tv website relating to this add-on.
