Addons offering live sports feeds are always in high demand with Kodi users. Unfortunately, these rarely have much in the way of life expectancy, since copyright holders are especially keen to crack down on any illicit streams to their content. Thus, whenever a new live sports addon crops up AND works well, the Kodi community at large tends to take notice. That has certainly been the case with the excitement surrounding Sport365!
Always Use a VPN with Kodi
Before delving into the details of Sport365, we want to make a case for your security. We always recommend you use a virtual private network when streaming with Kodi, and especially when using live sports addons. This is because unofficial addons like these can allow access to content which is copyrighted in some parts of the world. As such, copyright holders have taken a dim view of Kodi, and may retaliate whenever they detect its users in action. You may be sticking to legal streams, but they often don’t care to give you the benefit of the doubt when levying fines or interruptions of service.
A VPN keeps your traffic hidden and your identity safe by encrypting all data transmitted to and from your device, then routing it through a proxy server to label you with an anonymous IP address. With the right provider, no one–not overzealous ISPs or aggressive authorities–will be able to tell who you are or what you’re doing online.

The Sport365 User Experience
Because it is listed by time, the content can seem a bit jumbled, with different sports all mixed together. Thankfully, all the matches are clearly listed with the event, sport, and teams playing clearly labelled in the title. It is therefore not terribly difficult to scroll through the addon to find the event you are looking for.
Available events will be marked with a green dot and when you click on them, a number of relevant links will appear. Simply click on your chosen link and your stream should begin. In our testing, while the quality of streams was variable, the majority of links appeared to work, which is not always the case with live sports links.
