UK viewers are always on the lookout for great TV shows to watch. Unfortunately, not everyone has a cable subscription where many of the better shows can be seen.
Not only this, but there can be delays in movie and TV show broadcasts, and they can only be seen after they have first aired if at all.
On top of all this, it can be difficult for users to gain access to these shows regularly, and this is where Kodi comes in and helps.
Before seeing how we can get around these restrictions, we will take a look at Kodi and what you can expect to see on AMC.
What is Kodi?
Kodi is an open source media player who originated on the Xbox. It has since been improved and is still free for users to use.
The Kodi app is available for a wide range of devices such as Windows, Mac, Android iOS and many more streaming devices.
It has plenty of official add-ons, but it is the unofficial add-ons which have helped to make it so accessible.
What is AMC?
This is one of the most popular American TV channels and broadcasts a vast number of movies and TV shows.
AMC directly can be a real pain to access, but when using the power of Kodi, it can be much more relaxed and a better viewing experience.
AMC is home to some of the best TV shows such as Better Call Saul, and one of the latest installments, Fear, The Walking Dead.
It also brings with it the cartoon network, animal planet, comedy central and fox news as many other local channels depending on what part of the USA it is accessed from. It is also home to Fox sports, the weather channel, National Geographic, and the food network.
AMC can now be accessed through its mobile AMC app which is ideal for cord cutting and getting away from watching AMC without cable.
Kodi Add-ons That Can Access AMC
All of the following add-ons are unofficial and do require a VPN to be used with Kodi. The good thing with these add-ons, they allow a user in the UK to watch a Walking Dead live stream as easy as it is to watch back episodes on the Disney Channel.
This popular add-on is a great way to access AMC shows as well as Canadian channels. It has options to live stream standard, or high definition programs and movies live, or you can watch later at another time.
This Kodi add-on is highly popular and comes with plenty of IPTV allowing users to watch AMC live streaming, or they can just as easily watch archived back episodes.
This add-on is just as easy to add and use as any of the others which can bring AMC to Kodi.
Believe it or not, this sporting Kodi add-on can also stream AMC live among its many other channels. To add this add-on to Kodi, you do need the Indigo repo added first.
Other unofficial add-ons include Gobble, cCloudTV, but there are options which are more legitimate than these.
The use of a VPN is still needed because of geo-restrictions which will be in place, but here are a few alternatives on Kodi for AMC TV live streaming.
Official Kodi Add-ons to Stream AMC
There is one device which is one of the top streaming devices users can get. This is the PlayStation, and on this is the PlayStation Vue streaming service.
This is luckily available as an add-on for Kodi. One thing that is strange is they offer a free trial, but it isn’t a 7-day free trial, it is 5-days, so you do need to be quick to test it and cancel it.
This gives users the chance to stream AMC and catch up on Fear, The Walking Dead online without cable, or the need to actually own a PlayStation.
There is a subscription, but this is reasonable because the basic package includes the chance to stream AMC and watch Investigation Discovery or lots of other USA network content.
Here are the straightforward installation instructions for Kodi:
- From Add-ons (Package Symbol,) select Install from repository
- Find the Official Kodi Add-on Repos and pick it
- Select Video add-ons
- Locate PSVue and click to install
- You can access this add-on from Add-ons section
You will need to add your password and username before you can use this add-on. Right
click on the add-on to do so, or you won’t be able to access the service.
The last way to watch AMC without cable is using USTV Now Plus. This can be one of the best ways to watch AMC and its Live TV streaming.
To access this, you will need to sign up for an account, and you do need to do it using an email address. The option to sign up with your social media won’t work.
It requires the ‘All Channels’ plan to watch AMC online. And again, it does need a VPN for Kodi to bypass the geo-restrictions that are set in place.
This Kodi add-on can be found in the Kodil repo. To install, you follow the same directions as those for the PlayStation above.
Best VPN for Kodi
Two of the best VPN’s on the market are ones which are suitable for using with Kodi. However, when it comes to a streaming experience, the better of the two is ExpressVPN.
This VPN offers faster and more reliable speeds and is based outside of any jurisdiction.
It can also mask connections, and it is easy to change servers from city to city in the US in case you can’t access all the AMC content.
NordVPN being the second best, and much of this is because it trails the other VPN in most reviews. It is a good option, but it doesn’t deliver on every front like the world’s number one.
Cost wise, there is very little between the two, and with the Express 30-day money back guarantee to be almost instant, you can use it as a free trial for the first month.
