  1. Free Cable is not working :/
    at “System > Settings > Add-ons > “Get Add-ons” > “bluecop Add-on Repository” > Free Cable” free cable option not appears

  2. I avoided having to even mess with figuring out how to add XBMC add ons buy getting a SkystreamX. It came with XBMC 12.2 Frodo already installed and all of the good Add Ons were already preloaded onto the box. Great product. Plug and Play.

    Android TV Box

  3. those plugins look and sound wonderful but they are not compatible with the latest stable releases of openelec and xbmc. Pitty
