“The KODI app.”

I only gave KODI 4 stars because it can be glitchy and there is definitely a learning curve, but when you figure it out its worth it. The best resource is YouTube because to get the most out of kodi you need to do a build, or at least know how to download addons. I have the xenon plus build, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLbEPJhaEto with a realdebrid acc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShNPC59nVB8 for those of you who are on a budget there is a xenon free build which I have had and it seems to work for the most part, but like I said kodi can be glitchy. There is a live TV section and it is a good idea to use a vpn, I use PIA an I will be doing review on that shortly... There are so many apps included with the build not all of them could be legit. Thats one of the reasons why I use realdebrid and I am not sure if they are even 100%...

I've been using Kodi (formerly XBMC) since "Frodo", now "Krypton" (version 17), waiting for "Leia" (v. 18) to become stable...

Pros:
It's open source. (GNU GPL version 3)
HUGE selection of addons including YouTube, Food Network, and so on
ANYONE can write an addon! The addon language is Python. If you can write Python code, you're in.
Cross platform! Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora...), Windows, Mac, Android (no iPhones)... even Raspberry Pi... and Apple TV, also for Xbox One through the Microsoft Store
Extensive documentation at https://kodi.wiki and user forums

Cons:
Can be a tad difficult to set up.
YouTube addon search function can error out (but can be solved by creating a free Google API key)

Oh... the website is kodi.tv not xbmc.org anymore because Microsoft sued the developers for unauthorized use of Xbox (Kodi/XBMC was originally for jailbroken Xboxes [the original not the Xbox 360 or Xbox One])
