Essential Kodi Addon: Stream the BBC Essential Mix

The Essential Kodi addon from the OneNation Repo is a great new source for streaming BBC Essential Mix in Kodi. Every single show from 1993 until today is in the addon.

The BBC Essential Mix is a radio show featuring contemporary DJs and music producers of electronic dance music. It features an uninterrupted two-hour mix from a different artist each week. It is one of the longest running programmes in the current BBC Radio 1 schedule and one of the few shows not broadcast live.

The host of the BBC Essential Mix is DJ Pete Tong, who has been there since the show’s inception. It airs late Friday night / early Saturday morning.

The Essential Kodi addon is laid out by year from 1993-2008. When you click on a year, you’ll be able to stream every single mix from each week throughout that year. Like OneNation’s other addon, Deceit, the addon is easy and works great!
