AceStream Kodi V16 vs. V17.1

The AceStream add-on for Kodi is pretty much the same on V16 (Jarvis) and V17.1 (Krypton). You have the same features available and media player. The only difference is the outlook of the add-on on the varied Kodi versions. The V16 uses the older theme and outlook of Kodi. As a result, the extension will appear extremely different as compared to V17.1 or Krypton in terms of appearance.

    What bullshit! I’ve been trying to get this AceStream to work all day. I don’t think the blog is helping us out here

    • Admin says:

      Hey Tyrone, it seems like you’re really upset. We apologize for the inconvenience. At the time we wrote this article, the Fusion repository was working perfectly. However, after the crackdown on Kodi, many add-ons are no longer operational. We are trying to come up with a solution and researching on various repositories as an alternative. Stay tuned!

  2. Rupe says:

    hi I cant seem to get any links to work although I followed all steps kindly help.

    • admin says:

      Hi Rupe
      Acestream links for Kodi are easier to ban so they usually appear right before a live event or broadcast. I have been unable to make them work myself unfortunately the links are very difficult to find now. I would suggest just use the IPTV add-ons available within Kodi.

  3. Diva says:

    cant find any links, the links i found are not working. does this thing even work.

    • admin says:

      Hi Diva
      Acestreams on Kodi has had some issues as links get taken down quickly. I will recommend using Kodi IPTV add-ons if you wish to watch live TV most Kodi users have moved on so I will suggest you do the same. Sorry I have been stuck with the same issue too.

  4. James says:

  5. Jason says:

    nothings working on ace streams for me, what to do now? im a beginner on kodi, please use simple instructions

    • admin says:

      Hi Jason
      If you are possibly in the UK some add-ons and repositories are blocked by your ISP. Others inclusion fusion and ace streams links have been banned. If you wish to watch TV channels from the UK, USA and Europe try the Sanctuary repo. Sanctuary gives you an add-on called Oblivion which is IPTV with more than 80 channels to choose from to watch HBO, ABC, BeInSports, BBC, BTsport, FOX, ESPN, SKY and lots of other channels from around the world. I will post the link for my blog here in the reply so you can set it up quickly.
