Sling Kodi Addon: How To Install It on Kodi

By Novak Bozovic / January 18, 2022

When it comes to live TV streaming services, you have (too) many options these days. Still, if you're adamant about using Kodi, know that most OTT services will be out of your reach – except Sling TV. Thanks to the Sling Kodi addon (created by an independent developer), you can integrate this OTT service with your favorite home theater app.

Before we go any further, a few useful tips. Know that we're talking about an unofficial Kodi addon here, which comes from GitHub. However, this is a legal and safe-to-use addon that requires an active Sling TV subscription. Once you input your credentials, you'll access your Sling TV package, letting you watch any content directly via Kodi.

Tip

If you're not yet a Sling TV subscriber, we offer plenty of helpful articles to help you make up your mind. First, check out Sling TV’s packages and prices. And then, here’s how to get Sling TV outside the US – useful if you’re currently abroad.

Keep in mind that the Sling Kodi addon tends to bring 720p and 1080p content. Kodi is not yet capable of streaming in 4K, which doesn't matter in this case as Sling TV doesn't yet offer any 4K content. With that said, there's absolutely no reason not to try this addon.

In this article, we are talking about Kodi and this application’s official and unofficial addons – all of which are based on open-source code. Addons for Kodi can come from the official source (you can install them via Kodi itself), or they can be hosted by third-party sources (such as GitHub, for example). In addition, Kodi and its addons are publicly available and free of charge.

IMPORTANT: Access More TV Channels & Protect Your Privacy Using a VPN!

When watching live TV via Kodi – you HAVE TO use a VPN! That’s the only way to secure your use of Kodi while getting extra content as well. Here’s what VPNs bring:

  1. Get Access to More TV Channels: Most addons for Kodi that bring live TV channels are available in a limited number of countries. The only way to bypass that geo-block is to change your IP address, done using a VPN. You will GET ACCESS to ANY Kodi addon out there, including its entire content library!
  2. Avoid the Risks of Using Illegal Addons: Most Kodi addons scrape their content from ILLEGAL sources, which might land you in a lot of trouble. Aside from PIRATED CONTENT, addons installed from the Web can contain MALWARE as well. To prevent others from exploiting your privacy, use a VPN (which hides everything you do in Kodi).
  3. Prevent Your ISP from Tracking You: If your Internet provider sees you using Kodi, it might THROTTLE your Web connection. And if you’re caught using ILLEGAL addons, you’ll receive a copyright infringement notice. Avoid both of those dangers by hiding your traffic via a VPN.

Not every VPN is good enough for Kodi. You need one that unblocks any Kodi addon and protects your digital privacy (by hiding your data). After testing more than 60 VPNs, our team recommends NordVPN – the best Kodi VPN available today!
