I have Mobdro on my phone and it works pretty well.

Good to have a few different options!

With regard to VPN's. I use expressvpn (the paid for version). It works out at about £6ish per month and you can run it on several devices (5 I think) so plop it on your phone/tablet/wherever.

Just installed Mobdro on my tablet, easy to find the cricket this morning. Don't imagine finding the football at the weekend will be so easy if you don't know what channel it is on, that's one of the reason why I like SportsMania as they make finding things easy.

I use PIA as my VPN as I got it cheap off of XDA developers, it's also got an option that I can use for my torrents.

One thing, the sound of the streams I have watched on Mobdro seem to be all out of synch, is there a setting for this..

 This is the problem !

I set up a bookmnark which quickly take sme to the Mania calendar where I can see what channels are showing the game, then you can look for it in Mobdro.

On Mobdro, you can (in settings) filter by English speaking only and alphabetical. So when you go into Sports channels it is a bit easier to find.

This is the Mania calendar

Kodi is a nightmare for sports and I'v given up on that and now use now tv and BT, sure its an arm and a leg but I get the games, still use kodi for films etc I use nolimits as its the most updated build by far since the crackdown, I don't have a vpn and don't really see the point, my provider BT appears not to give a shit,  VPN slows down your speeds as well.

It's not Kodi that's the nightmare for sports, it's the plugins, there's so many of them that it's a minefield.

Apparently you can get mobdro as a plugin for Kodi, not tried it but it might be worth a shot

 Ok I was keeping it simple, the add ons are shite now and not updated since the cease and disist letters went out, they were poor before but now even worse, I havent seen a mobdro plugin but that would be great if it was reliable, and thats the key, I can't be arsed with the ballsing around anymore.

 There is virtually no speed impact with the vpn I use. I think it's the free ones that can have an adverse effect.

As for BT not giving a shit. They might when they see there sport subscriptions are drastically down and it's not really them you need to be worried about anyway.

If they do I'll buy a vpn and an IPTV subsciption, no dramas, the days of finding sports and getting a good stream are long gone, even direct debit blag sites from Saudi have 18 month waiting lists, the good times of blag sports has gone for now, streaming and card sharing basically gone within a year. It will come back though as Sky are going over to solely internet and someone will find a way or a device of hacking it.

Only just come back to this thread. Glad a few of you found, tried and liked Mobdro! Someone told me about it in the same way - it's good to share these nuggets of joy... except when we play crap and have no heart and the tablet gets thrown across the room and I wish there wasn't an app like Mobdro that allows me to watch the Saints - Liverpool match. 

Happy to be of service... :-)
