Initially launched as a radio network, ABC has transformed into the United State’s premium television broadcasting service that offers some of the greatest TV shows of all times like Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Good Doctor, The Doctor OZ Show, The View, America This Morning among others. Kodi on the other hand, is a highly customizable software that serves as a holy grail of video content from all types of sources like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and ABC. However, streaming on Kodi is often subjected to be in a legally gray area rather than black and white.
Absolutely, yes. Provided that you stream content using only licensed sources. Kodi has a whole world of add-ons (both official and third-party) that can instantly serve you any type of content on a silver platter. While it can be seriously tempting to try an unofficial add-on to stream some specific content that isn’t available officially, it’s best to resist if you want to avoid legal repercussions. Majority of the third-party or unofficial add-ons have no broadcast or copyrights for the content they serve. Always use legitimate Kodi add-ons that serve licensed content to enjoy a secure streaming experience. Simply put, streaming on Kodi is legal as long as you don’t watch it to stream illegal or copyrighted content.
ABC is yet another great source of content that is available on Kodi. While most of the add-ons that offer ABC have been subjected to have content licensing issues, there are a few that are legal to use and serve content from legitimate sources. And the best part is that they won’t cost you a dime just like the rest of the Kodi add-ons library.
Down below we have listed two Kodi add-ons that offer ABC stream from official sources.
USTVNow is a service especially designed to enable members of the US armed forces to watch Amercal television broadcast outside their homeland. But that doesn’t make it exclusive for the armed services only. As a matter of fact, anyone can sign up for this add-on as it doesn’t really require any proof of identity. With just a click, the USTVnow Kodi add-on makes content available on your screen.
With USTVNow’s free plan you get to stream all major US over-the-air terrestrial stations including ABC, CBS, CW, PBS and My 9. And the best part is that there are no regional restrictions associated with its content so you can stream from anywhere in the world. However, the only downside is that this free tier doesn’t offer on-demand content.
USTVNow also offers premium plans ranging between $19/month up to $99 that allow you to access 200+ channels including some of the most popular ones like HBO and Showtime. USTVNow add-on is available to download from the official Kodi repository so give it a try and access ABC legally.
Available in the official Kodi repository, WABC Programs add-on is without a doubt the best way to stream ABC content on-demand. It has a simple, non-customizable interface to make things easier for streamers by displaying all available content on a single page. The media library is quite balanced and offers a pleasant blend of old and new content. By the likes of old-school classics like America’s Funniest Home Videos and new releases such as Marvel’s Agent of Shield, it’s safe to say that the content library has something for everyone. WABC Kodi add-on fetches content directly from ABC TV’s official website, thus, you also get to watch up-to-date ABC shows like Good Morning America.
Using Kodi is super-fun and totally legal as long as you know the right places to find your desired content. In order to enjoy a secure Kodi streaming experience, always stream content from official sources. Many users opt for third-party add-ons that for all you know, could be fetching copyrighted content from unofficial sources which is both illegal and immoral. Still, if you feel tempted enough to give them a try, never do so without taking necessary precautions like using a Kodi VPN.
