    I have been using XBMC on my PC for some time now and though it is very good I always get buffering issues. Will I get the same on AppleTV on the same internet connection?

  • Colonica

    i had the same issue but since i upgraded my internet speed, there is no buffering.

  • Renegade_Raul

    “View live tv via your APPLE TV 1, 2, or 3” AppleTV 3 is not Jailbroken yet, don’t mess with my emotions like that.

  •  forget one very good, PELISALACARTA has content in English and Spanish

  • Clutchkargo

    You missed the best addon out there…..What the Furk!!

  • leetut

    IceFilms, step 11. (Simply open the repo labeled “anarchintosh addons”. Once inside select Video Add-ons and then click IceFilms.)

    nope, once “inside” i dont see “Video Add-ons” so cant “click IceFilms”
    its empty, nothing in there

    be a good idea to remove it from your “top 10”
    then remove the guide 😉

  • leetut

    finally found IceFilms when xmbc crashed (like it does all the time) but cant install as its “broken”???
    dependencies not met???
    dont seem to be anything in the guide about that one lol

    of the year my atv has been jailbroken all ive done is stream movies from the imac, which i can do without a jailbreak!!!

  • Free_bohemian

    Would be cool if supertv actually work, it doesn’t:( It only say “working” and then go back to overview pic…Any tricks and tips, and i will be very happy:)

  • Thehan

    How come most of the channels/addons never play? Either it gives playback error, or the working sign spins and spins then nothing happens. If this is what apple tv is all about, i think i would rather pass.

  • Rchie187

    Do any of these work for the iPad with xbmc I already have naiv x but do any other ones work?????

  • Margareth XBMC repo addons for Live TV

  • obsession

  • Margareth
  • isbath

    I’ts awesome.
    very recomended!!!

  • tayloradubose

    hahahaha yeah :/

  • carem

    What would be VERY nice to have is a section for people that are NOT located in the US, regarding how to access content when geographic constraints are in place (practically all on demand services and add ons that are available via XBMC) 🙁

  • Brian

    Carem all you have to do is change your DNs ip to an American one.use tube and search dns ip and hulu ect or Netflix .need to go to wifi settings and delete your own nds IP address and type in the American one.this fools hulu ,Netflix and other program’s into thinking u like in America..:)

  • boxino iptv
