Kodi is a free open source media center software application, which is for home networks. It manages, stores, and displays content across multiple devices. Out of the box, content is not easily provided. Add ons are necessary for online live streaming services and other features to extend the user experience.

Roku is a device that should be linked to the internet; otherwise, locally stored content is retrieved. The Roku account must be set up. Once it is activated, users can interact with the online media libraries through display provide access to a plethora of movies and content such as Google Play, Amazon Instant Video, and CBS.

Kodi is an application on Windows, Android, or Raspberry Pi, but only works on Apple devices. Kodi is not distributed with content. It does not provide default access to third-party content. Kodi requires a back- end service to support these features. Legality issues have plagued Kodi users receiving copyright infringement notices for streaming.

When you say Roku, you are referring to a type of portable device or a smart TV that will provide the HDMI that you need. This will come with a remote control so that you can easily control the shows and the channels that you would like to watch. Kodi is known to be one of the software that can be used when you would need something that can manage the different data that you may have.

Kodi is known to be something that you can download on different devices. You may also download Kodi on Apple devices provided that your Apple devices are jailbroken. If not, you would not be able to download this at all.
