How to Install the Sportsnet Now Kodi Addon

By Novak Bozovic / June 25, 2021

This add-on isn’t yet compatible with Kodi 19 ‘Matrix’ and its subsequent releases (of which, Kodi 19.4 is the latest one). Keep in mind that Kodi 19 is incompatible with many add-ons, which require to be updated to support the latest version of the application.

Since this particular add-on still works on Kodi 18.9 ‘Leia’ (and older releases), you can use that version of Kodi to install and run it. Once an update becomes available, we’ll make sure to let you know.

These days, using Kodi to watch live sports has become a viable alternative to using any standalone sports-focused OTT service. Thanks to add-ons such as ESPN 3Fox Sports GO, and NBC Sports Live Extra, both live and on-demand sports content is available. And in this article, we’ll expand that set of options with the Sportsnet Now Kodi addon.

Coming from Canada, Sportsnet Now is a hugely popular streaming service focused on sports. No matter if you’d like to follow the NHL, MLB, NBA, or WWE events, you’ll find them all here (for the price of $19.99/month, which seems like a great deal). And thanks to ingenious independent developers, Sportsnet Now has finally reached Kodi as well.

Keep in mind that to use the Sportsnet Now Kodi addon, you need to have a Sportsnet Now subscription (which also means that you need to be in Canada). However, there is a way to access Sportsnet Now outside of Canada by using a VPN for Kodi.

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: Unblock Kodi Addons & Protect Your Privacy Using a VPN!

When using Kodi addons – you also 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 Content: Most Kodi addons are available in a limited number of countries. The only way to bypass that geo-block is to change your IP address, using a VPN. You’ll GET ACCESS to ANY Kodi addon out there, including its entire content library!
  2. Avoid the Risks of Using Illegal Addons: Plenty of 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 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 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!
