BEFORE WE PROCEED

We highly recommend using a VPN when using Kodi. Kodi users have been known to receive copyright infringement notices for streaming movies, sports, and TV shows through various App. If you intend to keep your streaming habits private, take advantage of our solution, as it’s the best for Kodi users. It’s also worth noting that purchasing a 12 month subscription will give you two months free.

WHAT IS SCROBBLING?

Scrobbling occurs when a computer program or app tracks what you watch or listen to online.  Last.fm– a popular music scrobbler– was one of the very first scrobblers to go mainstream.  Trakt.TV does the same thing Last.fm does except instead of scrobbling music, it scrobbles movies and TV shows.
