It’s thrilling to have the new DS9 addon, as free live sports apps and IPTV services constantly shutting down, we’re in dire need of some decent live sports addons. You can learn from this guide on what is DS9 addon, and how to install DS9 addon on Kodi.
I’ll demonstrate the installation on Kodi Leia 18.9, the latest stable release version of Kodi. This installation guide applies to all compatible devices including Amazon Firestick, Fire TV, Android & IOS, Mac, Android TV, Android Boxes, etc.
DS9, developed by Odo, is a brand new sports addon from DejaVu repository for live sports and replays. Like many other great addons from DejaVu repository like DejaVu, Maverick, Free and Mercury, DS9 is completely free to use.
Sports streams on DS9 addon are scraped from an extensive range of live sports networks and channels. Upcoming sports games and events will be lined up by time, and live links will be added 30 minutes before start.
DS9 sections include: live football, live daily sports, EPL live, WWE/AEW/UFC replays, Sports replays HD (RD only), classic sports replays, world sports channels, world sports channels extra, backup links and test links.
Certain sports replays from DS9 require the use of Real-Debrid for HD streams fetching, whereas please note that debrid services don’t help with live streams at all.
Though most live streams available from Kodi addons are trial and errors at best, links from DS9 addon are relatively trustworthy, and the quality is always acceptable. In the view of this and more, we’ve put DS9 addon on WonderFox Best Kodi Addons in 2021 list, sports addons section.
Apart from live sports addons, live TV and IPTV addons can also be a good place for the latest live sports streams. See our Best Free Live TV IPTV Addons on Kodi in 2021 to find out more.
