Review of XL 5.0 with full EPG Guide Addon Kodi
We give an honest review of this subscription based IPTV addon. There are quite a few subscription based addons in the Kodi community which give the stability. This will stop you having to spend time looking for the best streams for a particular live channel.
Subscription based IPTV is not everyone’s cup of tea but here at BestForKodi we will always do our most to bring you the latest info on everything going on in the scene.
I get endless tweets asking me about the best paid IPTV service and HD channels so i will blog a service that provides this.
If you are going down the Sub based IPTV route please always go with a company that has been around a while.
I had heard rave reviews from users of this service so i am looking forward to taking a look at this addon and what it has to offer.
SO WHAT ARE MY THOUGHTS ON IT? DO THEIR USERS HAVE THE RIGHT TO BANG ABOUT THE SERVICE?
According to their subscribers XL is Known for its huge range of channels and rock solid stability Ruya has been the benchmark in IPTV service for years and they provide the channels for the XL addon.
XL have been working on this addon tweaking and improving it for a while now and what a great job they have done with it.
XL have even teamed up with 3 of the biggest Kodi EPG Addons iVue, Renegades and OnTapp for full EPG integration. You can install which one you what to use and XL will be able to be linked to the channels in the guide. (Very Smart)
The guys at XL even offer a build with their addon in which is a very lite build. Its been paired with beautiful graphics and Convanant. The build already linked with Epg Addons, IVue. This gives you the complete home TV experience for your device without having to do anything yourself.
What else does XL have to Offer?
- Automatic cache and file management
- Family friendly, fully integrated, easy to use kodi build
- 2 servers for more reliability
- Recently Watched TV Menu: showing you a history of channels watched to make it quick and easy to go to the channels you love.
- Recently watched Box Sets : showing the series and episodes watched making it easy to keep track of where you are.
- 150(!) New Backgrounds: High quality, up to date images that you won’t get bored of quickly.
YOU CAN ALWAYS FOLLOW OUR SIMPLE GUIDES AND ADD YOUR OTHER FAVOURITE ADDONS TO IT.
The build showcases their superb addon and i can see this option being very popular on the scene. I must say its a nice touch especially for users new to Kodi. So well done to the team at XL for thinking of and supporting this option.
They also stated in conversation with me that the build is going to be improved all the time (So watch this space)
The feature of full EPG integration certainly will help a lot of the not so technical minded Cut the Cord and move over to this outstanding service.
The XL service runs Ruya Channels which has been running for many years now. The team are very experienced in what they do.
The addon has over 120 uk channels including 40 HD and over 600+ channels from all around the world including all the top sports channels so you will never miss a match again.
They have different packages to subscribe to UK Bundle / Complete Bundle or even just Sports!.
THEIR WEBSITE CAN BE VIEWED HERE
So let’s have a quick look at what these packages contain. This has to be one of the biggest Channel lists i have seen from an IPTV service that i have used or reviewed in the past.
Channel List 600+ Channels from all around the world. Their Full up to date list can read HERE Just click on the channel list tab at the top.
The quality of these streams are amazing and on testing i never experienced any buffering on my 80mb Internet connection.
The channels that are in HD will bring up this option screen so you can choose the best option for you and your connection speeds. (You can get it to auto select HD via addon settings if you prefer)
From speaking to the team at XL at length you are in very safe hands and from reading twitter comments they have a superb customer service.
This would be very important to me if i was paying to subscribe to a service. Yes obviously the quality of the service but after care and knowing someone is there if you have problems and issue is sorted quickly and efficiently.
WOULD IT HOLD UP TO THE DEMAND? WOULD I HAVE ANY BUFFERING OR ADDON ISSUES?
Well what can I say? I was very impressed i used the service over the whole week without any major blips
I know from the years of using iptv services no service is 100% but this service would be in the high 90’s and i would have no hesitation in handing over my hard earned cash for Quality and Stability of the product.
THE ADDON NOT ONLY HAS LIVE CHANNELS BUT IT ALSO HAS AN AMAZING VOD/CATCHUP SELECTION
1000+ movies on demand (Box Office)
100+ TV shows on demand (Box Sets)
The other great feature of this addon is the Live tv Catchup section. This has UK,USA,Italian and Maltese catch up services. (This feature is amazing on its own!)
This covers these channels, you can select your channel and then select the date( up to 21 days previous)
Right i have waffled on long enough and you are probably all shouting at me How Much??? These change so keep an eye on their site for deals and promotions
The Prices are very competitive within the IPTV market. Maybe slightly towards the top end but the quality speaks for itself, What’s that saying in Life? You get what you pay for!
For upto date prices check out thier site HERE
The addon repo zip is available from their Website. This can be simply downloaded and added to your device. Once the guys have sent your login details after purchase you are ready to go!
Right that’s enough from me and by now you have probably stopped reading this blog and are on XL site signing up for this amazing service.
So if you want Stability, Quantity and the Quality with great Customer Service from a team that care about you and their product then this maybe just maybe this is the service for you!
IF YOU ARE STILL UNSURE AND WANT TO HAVE A LOOK AT THE GREAT SERVICE FOR YOUR SELF. THE GUYS HAVE SETUP A TRIAL OPTION FOR YOU ON THE SITE. THIS WILL GIVE YOU A 2 DAY PASS TO THE SERVICE. SO YOU LIKE ME CAN PUT IT THROUGH ITS PACES. AT ONLY £4 FOR THIS WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!!
