How to install Kodi, the iPhone version of XBMC.

Kodi is an open source media player formerly and widely known as XBMC. This platform lets its users view movies, sports, television channels, and other media files directly from their player. It’s convenient because the content it provides is that of high demand, such as unreleased movies, hard to find shows, or live sports events that otherwise normally have a fee attached to viewing them; while Kodi provides them for free.
