The drought is almost over for sports fans all over the world and stadiums are back to their pre-lockdown charm. So much is happening in sporting arenas and true sports lovers would not want to miss the live-action.
If you truly love watching live sports, you must install Q Sports Kodi addon. Today I am going to introduce to everyone who never gave it a try, an addon that has remained underrated for a long time. Trust me, this is no less than a treasure if you love soccer, cricket, tennis, and baseball! It’s technically a live TV addon that lets you stream most of the popular sports channels from various regions including the United States.
Before starting the working method to install Q Sports Kodi addon, let’s have a look at its interface and library.
Q Sports aka Continuum Kodi Addon
Q Sports is a Live TV addon that offers free streaming of Sports TV Channels from different regions including popular US-Based sports channels. The streaming quality is standard so you cannot expect high-end HD streaming since it doesn’t have the Real-Debrid or Trakt integration so far.
The home screen has a simple list of streaming options including Live Sports, Match Replays, and US TV Go.
The following screenshot shows the list of sports available within the Live Sports section. The number of live games being played is mentioned next to each sport. If you are an eSports love, don’t forget to install Q Sports addon since it lets you stream live eSports challenges.
Q Sports is available with two third-party Kodi repositories. You can install it using any of these repos. I prefer the DeJaVu repo but it doesn’t make a difference since Narcasist’s Wizard Repo has the same Q Sports addon as well.

Narcasist’s Wizard Repo: http://www.narcacist.com/repo/
DeJaVu Repo is one of the best Kodi Repos functional in 2021. It has many promising addons including Dracarys, FREE, and Maverich. The Kodi 19 Matrix update restricted many popular addons since it is a Python 3 based Kodi build. However, your favorite addons are still functional on Kodi Leia 18. Here is our step-by-step guide to restore Kodi 18.
Pros of Q Sports Kodi Addon
- Live streaming as well as replays of recent sporting events
- The rare eSports streaming
- No premium subscriptions required
Cons of Q Sports 18 Kodi Addon
- Community addon with possible copyright offense on streaming sports channels in banned regions (VPN is a must for network and device security)
Safe Anonymous Streaming with Shellfire VPN
Not only speed but privacy is highly important when you are streaming on any platform including Kodi. Most popular Kodi addons come from third-party developers. They often rely on free scrapers which access risky and vulnerable servers where your personal information stays at risk.
Shellfire VPN is my favorite VPN service for various reasons. It now has 250,000 users and the number continues to increase. Its servers are operational in 37 countries covering 6 continents. Shellfire VPN is a German-based VPN service and it is compatible with Android, iOS, and Windows Operating Systems.
Shellfire VPN is one of the best options you can use today to get rid of speed throttling and it offers unlimited speed with 256k encryption. During the COVID-19 spread, the pressure on the bandwidth has significantly increased in most regions. However, VPN servers enable your internet connection to escape the bandwidth restrictions imposed by the local Internet Service Providers. Hence you can optimize the streaming speed by using the VPN service.
Anonymity and Unblocking Censorship
These days, copyright violations are dealt with in particular and Kodi or the addon developers don’t take responsibility in the case of violation. However, you can easily stream anonymously with Shellfire VPN. Moreover, different regions offer different content so you often face censorship. With its servers in 37 countries (US and UK included), Shellfire VPN lets you bypass censorship by selecting the most suitable server. Thanks to its Zero-Log policy, servers of Shellfire VPN do not store your personal information or browsing history.
Hackers mostly make successful attempts through public networks, e.g., WiFi connections at crowded places. With its 256kb end-to-end encryption, you can securely use the internet even via public WiFi. The encryption secures your activities and data from ISPs, agencies, and hackers.

After installing Q Sports Kodi addon, the question is, what is the level of satisfaction going to be? Well, it is certainly above average given the fact that you don’t find too many Sports streaming addons with such comprehensive coverage of popular sports. It is free, the streaming quality is reasonable for any non-premium and non-subscription addon.
