This Kodi Addon has been reigning supreme in the field of Sports Kodi Addons for a good while now and that too for a reason.

In this tutorial, I will show you how to install SportsDevil Kodi Addon on any of your device running Kodi Krypton 17.6. So without any further ado, let us start. Just follow these steps closely and you will be good to go. Here’s how to install SportsDevil on Kodi Krypton 17.6:
First of all, we need to turn ON the installation of add-ons from Unknown Sources. It can be simply done by navigating to Settings > System Settings > Add-ons > Unknown Sources. Turn it ON. If you’ve already done this, you can ignore this step and just move ahead to Step 1.
STEP 1: Launch Kodi Krypton 17.6 on your device and head to the Settings menu located on the top-right of the window as shown in the figure below.
STEP 2: In the Settings menu, open File Manager
STEP 3: Now head to Add Source option and double-click to open it.
STEP 4: As soon as you open Add Source, a pop-up menu will appear. Now click on None. A new menu will appear in which you need to provide the pathname or URL of the Repository. Just type http://bliss-tv.com/lite/ in the space provided and then click OK.
Please note that SportsDevil was earlier available on the Kodil Repo, but it seems to be down temporarily. In the meanwhile, you can download SportsDevil using Bookmark Lite Repo using the above link.
STEP 5: Now you need to enter Source Name. Just type Bookmark Lite there. Now before pressing OK, please ensure that you have filled the URL correctly.
STEP 6: Once you are done with this, head back to the main menu. You can do this by pressing the backspace key on your PC a few times.
STEP 7: In the main menu, open up the Add-ons menu. It is located on the bottom-left of the window (as shown in the image below).
STEP 8: Now select Package Installer (the open-box icon on the top-left as shown in the image below) and open it.
STEP 9: Select and open Install from Zip File and then click open Bookmark Lite.
STEP 10: Finally select repository.bookmarklite-1.8.zip. This will install the Bookmark Repo on your Kodi Krypton 17.6 and as soon as it gets installed you will get a notification on the top-right of the window.
STEP 11: Once you get the notification, head back to the previous menu and this time, select Install from Repository and then go to Bookmark Lite
STEP 12: Once you open Bookmark Lite, head over to Video Add-ons and then find SportsDevil there.
STEP 13: Once you locate SportsDevil, just open it and click Install.
Voila, the job is done. As soon as SportsDevil will get installed on your system, you will get a notification. Now you can just sit back on your couch and enjoy the live action of FIFA 2018 World Cup and many other great sporting events on your Kodi running PC, Amazon Fire TV or other devices.
Many users have been facing a few issues like “No Streams Available”. This issue can be simply resolved by getting Real Debrid for your Kodi device. Real Debrid accumulates streams from all over the globe and makes sure that you never run out of working links. There is another error which is fairly common these days. It is the Web Request Failed error. Users often encounter this while playing live streams. This occurs when Kodi fails to read the script or file format. You can easily solve this issue by enabling RTMP input. You can do this by navigating to Add-ons menu>My Add-ons> VideoPlayer InputStream>RTMP Input> Enable.
There are other common errors like Check Log error or issues with playback like buffering. You can simply do this by clearing the cache in the Tools menu in the SportsDevil Add-on menu. Once you have cleared the cache, just restart Kodi and play the videos again. Hopefully, you won’t get playback issues now. Regularly updating the Kodi addons is also a must. So please ensure that your SportsDevil Kodi Addon is updated to the latest version. Furthermore, you wish to get access to geo-restricted content, a good VPN is always a great option. Accessing pirated or restricted content might land you trouble, so reader’s discretion is advised.
So what are you waiting for? Just install SportsDevil on your device running Kodi Krypton 17.6 using the above-mentioned steps. Just enjoy the amazing sporting action on channels like Sky Sports, Box Nation, NFL Network, BT Sports and many more great sports channels.
I’ve personally tested the SportsDevil Kodi Addon and it is working perfectly. There were some issues with the Kodil Repository, so I chose the Bookmark Lite Repository for this tutorial. Just follow the above-mentioned steps and you can easily install this amazing sports addon for Kodi Krypton 17.6.
