Default Alternatives to FilmOn

FilmOn is now a subscription service with it only the first 2 minutes free and then it cuts out. I watch it through Exodus so I don't think I can subscribe even if I wanted to.

What's the alternatives for streaming live UK channels, all Kodi add ons seem to tap into it?

We're sorry, BritBox is not available in your country.

It says that no matter which server I set my VPN to.

I think it's also subscription only.

The only free streaming service I've found so far is Mobdro. The app works fine on Android devices but I can't get it working on my Kodi v17.3 box
It has CNN and Sky News but the video quality is pretty meh!

I have used the TV Player app but not very recently. Give it a try? Also, Mrs Bloggs has a Sky subscription so I guess Sky Go would be an option too.

I use tvcatchup here now Filmon is subscription. A little limited in channels plus it says only available in UK to TV licence holders! works fine on PC and Android tablet.
TVCatchup - Channels

I use Hoxx proxy VPN for Chrome/Firefox to watch iplayer , again, works OK here.

Thanks, I have the TV Player app but the quality is terrible and it doesn't always work. Mobdro has been mentioned to me before but I'm guessing installing it on a my Android box will take up a weekend. TVCatchUp looks good, watching it now.

Thanks everyone.
