Default Anybody using Kodi to watch BBC and ITV catchup?

Anybody using Kodi on a PC to access BBC and ITV? I tried but BBC stopped, stuttered and stopped, and ITV didn't start. I can access all the channels using Getflix SmartDNS and Chrome browser.

Anybody using Kodi on a media box (Xiaomi Mi, Vodafone TV, Apple, etc.) to watch BBC and ITV? Which one? Always work?

All advice welcome.

No. Kodi is great but pants for watching the BBC

I use a Nvidia Shield for Kodi but not for the BBC or ITV Hub. For streaming UK TV I use a HTPC (Intel NUC) running Windows 10, on the Edge browser via SmartDNS Proxy. Windows is best for this as a streaming service (iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 etc) is just a web-pages and not some unreliable, side-loaded app

Found Kodi was too much faffing around and unreliable feeds so dropped it last year.

I just go direct with ExpressVPN for iPlayer, Netflix USA etc.

Watch most things using APK's though.

BBC iplayer is brilliant - (including Eastenders, if that's what viewers like). I've spent a few days in bed with a bad cold and have watched a lot of stuff. Been binge watching Glastonbury on iplayer - fantastic stuff - The Killers were killer and The Cure are just living legends. Get stuck in

It's even better for us here in Australia as we get to experience the BBC without paying for it - winner
