How to stop your ISP from throttling Kodi

Your ISP can deliberately create streaming problems. Many internet service providers have been caught throttling their customers’ internet connections. These companies peek into your data, look for things like Kodi live TV streams, and slow your connection.

A secure Kodi VPN makes it impossible for ISPs to see your data. We create a fully encrypted connection from the Hotspot Shield VPN server to your device. Since the ISP can’t tell you’re streaming Kodi live sports from your home TV tuner, it can’t throttle your connection.

How to Watch Kodi abroad

With Kodi, free movies are just a click away by installing add-ons for services like Sony Crackle. Unfortunately, Sony Crackle will block viewers who aren’t in the United States or Australia. A Kodi VPN avoids these geo-restrictions when you travel abroad.

Hotspot Shield Premium users have access to our VPN servers in 80+ countries, including the US and Australia. When you’re on the other side of the world, just select one of our servers in the United States. Sony Crackle will see your US connection and give you full access through Kodi to free movies.
