XBMC = FREE Movies, TV Show, Music and Cable TV

Recommended Posts

This post is going to be about exposing anyone to XBMC that has never heard of it before and it will be a little bit of a tutorial now and then!

So recently I have been playing around with a new piece of software by the name of XBMC this little program is a pain in the ass to get configured to your liking ( A LOT OF YOUTUBE TUTORIALS ) But I will try to help and ease the pain by giving you guys pointers. Once that is all said and done you get what every American wants....

-Free music

-Free movies

-Free TV shows


Here is a small history lesson: Xbmc stands for Xbox media center. This was the old media center for xbox which got dumped and I am guessing new people took over or something and now it is a GIANT source for great entertainment!

The cool things about XBMC....


2) You can install it on WIndows, Linux, OSX, ARM, Rasberry Pi, IOS, apple tv, and XBMCbutu

3) You get TV shows, Movies, and Music the day they come out or sometimes the next day!

4) NEWS 12 ( this is exciting if you live in NY like me and don't have optimum )

I have personally put XBMC on my Apple TV and it works fine but I would recommend putting it onto a laptop or a desktop or EVEN BETTER a RASPBERRY PI which I have not yet gotten around to do, but I will in the future! Also you don't have to download the movies to watch them which we all know will eat up your hard drive quicker then you could imagine instead you stream them in HD to your laptop which In my opinion makes the program! But you do have the option to download the movies and TV shows if you want! I have not yet found a way to watch live TV but others have so just watch a few youtube video and you should be all set!

So how do you get it?

Simply go to http://xbmc.org/ and just click what type of OS you are running and your done!

How do I get all of my music, movies and tv shows?

well for me this was A LOT of youtube and I would recommend the same thing for you too! I will recommend what you should look into but I can't give a tutorial on every little thing!

The video add ons that I like are...

- 1Channel ( very popular ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wz8L-if0EXc

- DOCU-HUB ( documentary dtabase )

- FREE CABLE ( not actually free cable but it is more just a big database of tv shows )

- HULU ( you get everything that HULU has )

- ICEFILMS ( popular one ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wz8L-if0EXc

- MASH UP ( popular one ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_K6LSORniM

- Z-MOVIES ( a lot of movies in this database )

For Sports

I would highly recommend you look at Sports Devil

For Music

I don't listen to a lot of music but I've found that ( XUNITYTALK MUSIC ) is pretty good!

For Skin

I have the AEON MQ 5 EXTRAPACK as my skin and I couldn't be more happy. I would recommend that you set up XBMC to your liking first and then worry about the skin because a lot of people use the default skin on youtube and it gets confusing if you don't have the same one!

For programs

NAVI-X (VERY POPULAR) highly recommended!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MitgeVLmtY

XBMC basically runs around Fusion and XFINITY here is a quick tutorial that I found that will help you get them.


As I said before it takes some time to get use to it but it will be completely worth it in the end! Once you are all done you could run either a VGA cord and a 3.5mm cord to your TV which will project it on to the TV or you could run a HDMI which is simpler but not all laptops have one! I am writing this post because I wish that someone exposed me to XBMC earlier and taught me how to use it and what to do!

If you have any question please feel free to ask me!

The "free films" are illegal if you live in somewhere like the US. Outside the US where the laws are different, well then it's different.

Always check your local laws, you don't want to run afoul of them.

Thanks! But what you mean when you write "free movies"?

How can I see movies with XBMC? It's the addon Mash Up?
