The Sportie Kodi addon provides live sports from a variety of sources and has turned into one of the most promising Kodi live sports options available.
January 25th: If you were a fan of the Sportie Kodi addon previously, you can again check it out from the new Kodibae Repository on GitHub using the new GitHub Browser addon.
The Sportie Kodi addon is worth a check for live sports, especially with the lack of updates from both Castaway and Pro Sport in 2017. Sports are popular in Kodi, so more selection can be a good thing.
After installing Sportie, you’ll see the following options in the Settings you can configure:
Sportie Kodi Settings
- “Check if RTMP services are enabled?” – Sportie is recommended for Kodi 17+ only and the addon makes sure your RTMP services are enabled by default. RTMP is a protocol for decoding and playing live streams in Kodi and is mandatory. With this option enabled, you’ll see a button appear at the top of the addon you can click to enable RTMP if it is not.
- “Check Live TV links are alive before displaying?” – With this option enabled, Sportie will make sure links are alive before displaying them. This may slow down your addon, but should increase the reliability of what you find inside of it.
After you configure your settings, check out some of the features inside of the Sportie Kodi addon.
Sportie Kodi Features
- Live IPTV channels split out into a sports category (updated each time you enter the playlist) and then by country
- Soccer (European Football) streams and replays
- Live sports website scrapers (similar to SportsDevil)
- Reddit sports streams
For those fans of Pro Sport, the Reddit live streams should be a popular option and we highly recommend.

As you may have heard, telecom companies have been abusing their power by claiming that addon developers have been infringing content, despite the fact that Kodi addons are open source python code that simply search the public internet and host no content at all.
