I will showcase some of my favorite Kodi Builds here. 

The first and foremost install should be Ares Wizard . This wizard will help tremendously installing builds easy. This is anall-in-one setup for Kodi that automates installs of Add-ons, Builds, Maintenance and much more. Using a good VPN with Kodi is always suggested for privacy and security. If you need a good low cost VPN to use with Kodi Try IPVanish  it has multiple high speed servers with no throttling or logs.

Now That We have Ares Wizard installed, what do we do next? Well the first thing should be to decide what build we want to put in our Kodi. 
There are many many different builds for Kodi. Each one has its pros and cons. You will eventually go through a few to decide which fits you and your needs the most. Below is a few of my favorites.

Durex  
This is a quality premium build with many fine features. The standard navigation bar with the normal categories and sub sections you would expect are all present. There are several relevant widgets which will get you on your content quickly. We do like the choice of font and the rolling movie/TV show backdrops. They have also included a paid section menu option for easy navigation that includes some of the more popular services available. The choice of add-ons is extensive and you'll be sure to have your favorites in there. An all round good family choice for a build. Solid!

No Limits Magic
Kodi No Limits Magic Build is a very good Build that has a nice layout, all the popular add-ons are included, and no need for a password or pin number to install. The No Limits Magic Wizard now has multiple servers to choose from.
 It also has different versions that can be installed including a Fire TV Stick Version and adult version.

Fire Tv Guru
Fire TV Build is a great Build from FIreTvGuru Repository. It is a great build that should run very well on all devices. It has all the latest add-on including Covenant, Elysium, Not Sure, Bob Unlesahed, Bennu, Bucky Movies, Globe TV, IPTV Bonanza, Nfl Games, SkyNet, Quantum, NBC Sports Live Extra, Fire Fitness, FTFA, Bass Box, Falcon Sports, Picasso, Tykes, Not sure, and much more. This build has also sections for TV Shows, Movies, Her Place, Addons, Maintenance, All in One, Live Streams, Kids Corner, Sports Center, Music&Streams, Misc and much more.

Pulse CCM
The Pulse CCM build is one of the most popular available because of frequent updates and a clean user interface. Within Pulse CCM, you will find Kodi addons for movies, tv shows, kids shows, live television, sports replays, pay-per-view events, documentaries, and much more.

Since the recent shutdown of many Kodi addons in June of 2017, it has been difficult finding a quality build with streams that work well. Pulse CCM has done a great job including the best up-to-date Kodi add-ons and repositories so everything will update properly.

If you would ever like to update Pulse CCM, you can use the Fresh Install button within the build menu which will reset Kodi to factory default settings prior to installing new version.

And there we have it. You are now set-up with a fresh Kodi install of your choice. 

I have found trial and error is key when deciding what build is right for you.

Millions of Americans cut the cord on cable TV in 2017, finding refuge with a growing number of streaming services, which deliver lower prices and a competitive channel lineup over the internet.

Who doesn't love the Internet? It delivers information, answers, entertainment and connections to you, on demand, in seconds.

From anywhere and at any time from our desktop computers, laptops, smartphone and tablets.

It's a life-saver for students of all ages, moms, businesses, organizations...everyone.

But the Internet is not perfect. It has some built-in flaws that make you vulnerable when you're online. You should know that, because hackers, government and other snoopers and advertisers take full advantage of it.

A VPN changes that for you!

But you can make the Internet safer, more secure and definitely more private with the help of a VPN... a virtual private network .

You've probably been hearing more and more about VPNs for home use and travel. That's because it's more important than ever to be smarter and safer while you're on the Internet.

More than that, don't you want to go on the Internet without being tracked, monitored, and identified...without your knowledge? In today's world, that freedom is getting harder to find.


What are the unique benefits
of using a VPN?


Security. As already mentioned, security is a primary concern for anyone who’s online. The data on the internet may be intercepted, stolen or even altered. This can have serious consequences for users, including stolen credit cards and a leak of sensitive corporate information. Communication from you to the outside world can’t be fully protected by firewall and antivirus software installed on the computer.

Since the communication between your PC and a VPN is established through the protocols we described, the connection between your PC and remote resources is secure. If any of the routers get compromised by a hacker, it won’t be possible for him to decrypt the data flow between you and the VPN computers.

Privacy. Keeping your identity hidden while online is also very important. Without a VPN, your identity can easily be revealed by marketing agencies or anyone who’s curious enough and has sufficient skills. And when we talk about identity, we mean IP address, name, address and location. While you’re on the net, your device communicates with routers and web servers, leaving behind information about your IP and ISP.

A VPN successfully prevents this undesired disclosure of private information. While accessing content online through a VPN, the VPN provider’s identity becomes your own. You will appear to be online on a location other than your own, while your personal information, including the IP address, remains hidden.

Unrestricted Access. Many companies offer their online services with specific geographical restrictions. For instance, Netflix is still not available in many countries around the world. Similar to this, there are countries that forbid their citizens to access certain websites and companies who restrict their employees’ internet use. A VPN easily overcomes these obstacles.

Since there are VPN providers in many geographic regions, users can easily go around any geographical restrictions put in place either by a foreign company or their country.

Better Web Experience. Connectivity issues are a very common problem around the globe, especially when you want to access something that’s on the other side of the world. Due to poor internet routes and limited bandwidth, your overall online experience may be poor.


What to look for in a good VPN service?


The best VPN service is the one whose services completely meet your needs. This is why you have to identify those needs before selecting a VPN provider. That being said, there’s a consensus for what general services and features a good VPN service provider delivers.

Security. Since you’re going to place all information about your browsing, along with your personal information, into someone else’s hands, it’s of utmost importance to make sure that the VPN service provider secures VPN nodes, website and infrastructure.

Main driver for VPN use is access to streaming content. For example, almost 30% of all VPN users accessed Netflix in a given month

Good VPN service providers have regular security audits, PCI compliance, web application firewalls, dedicated server hardware and secured/reliable servers.

Software. A good VPN service provider also has user-friendly software. This is essential, because you don’t want to troubleshoot software with customer support every time you connect to a VPN. Good software is easy to set up and will get you online in no time. So make sure to see if the VPN provider has its own custom software.

Locations of VPN servers. Good VPN service providers have servers in more than one geographical location. This allows you to have unrestricted access to any content, no matter where it’s hosted. So make sure the VPN provider has servers spread around the globe before purchasing their services.

Keep in mind that the USA, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, called the Five Eyes , have agreed to exchange information in order to enhance security. This means that a government of any of these five countries can compel a VPN provider, through a court order, to disclose any information it holds. This does not apply to VPN providers that are based in any other country in the world.

Customer Support. This is also a very important factor that differentiates the good from the not-so-good VPN providers. Customer support has to be accessible 24/7, so that you can get your problems solved regardless of the time zone difference. The good ones will have a self-service help desk and live chat support at their users’ disposal.

VPN usage for anonymous browsingAnonymous browsing is a major reason for VPN use, especially in Saudi Arabia, India, and Vietnam

No data logging. Most people choose a VPN solution because they’re concerned about privacy and security. If you want to stay completely hidden behind the VPN, you have to read the VPN provider’s terms of use and policy in order to make sure they do not log your data.

Speed. The bandwidth may go down when you’re accessing the net via VPN. You want to make sure that the VPN provider invests in new servers and software in order to meet the needs of a large influx of new users. You can get an idea of this by reading the reviews of their users. With a good VPN provider, you should only experience very small changes in speed.

Pricing. It’s good general advice to always go with a provider that offers multiple payment options and various subscription plans that you can cancel anytime you want without facing any penalties

IPTV (Internet Protocol television) is a service that provides television programming and other video content using the TCP/IP protocol suite as opposed to traditional cable or satellite signals.

An IPTV service, typically distributed by a service provider, delivers live TV programs or on-demand video content. An IPTV system may be used to provide video content over a private network in an enterprise, although such implementations are far less common than subscriber-based models due to complexity and scaling issues.

Cutting the cord—canceling your cable or satellite TV service in favor of streaming or other options—is a hot topic. Whether because of the rising costs of TV service, declining interest in traditional cable programming, or other reasons, more and more people are dropping cable.
