Current notable shows include Better Call Saul, Turn: Washington’s Spies, Into the Badlands, and The Walking Dead. If you are a Kodi user or even if you have never heard of Kodi, and you want to live stream aMC, then this tutorial is for you.

What is Kodi?

kodi_comparitech

Kodi is a free open source media player application which was developed by the XBMC foundation. It is available for a wide range of devices such as Windows and Mac computers, Android devices, jailbroken iOS devices, Raspberry Pis and many more. You can conveniently control Kodi with a remote control or gamepad to stream both audio and video from a variety of sources.

Use a VPN with Kodi

VPNs encrypt your internet traffic and reroute it through a server in a location of your choice, hiding your location and identity. Streaming channels such as aMC through some Kodi add-ons may not be sanctioned by your internet service provider. Bearing this in mind, they may then try to throttle your connection when you use a service such as Kodi or try to disable your access to such a service altogether or send threatening legal letters.

To avoid this, connecting to a VPN is recommended when using Kodi. Note that VPNs also allow you to access geo-restricted content and protect your online privacy.

Streaming requires a large amount of bandwidth. Live streams, in particular, don’t compress video as much and thus require more download bandwidth. A reliable, fast, and secure VPN provider is essential. We recommend IPVanish, which is a popular choice in the Kodi community and provides the necessary sturdy connection, plentiful capacity, and a high level of privacy protection.

Deal alert: Our readers can save 57% on an annual IPVanish plan here.

How to live stream aMC on Kodi

USTVnow Plus

If you are an American expat or part of the American military abroad, a wide range of live American channels are available to watch on your computer, mobile device or television with USTVnow and by extension the USTVNow Plus addon. USTVNow Plus essentially allows you to access your USTVnow subscription in Kodi.

Before using USTVnow Plus you will first need to sign up for an account here. Please note that you will need to sign up for the account using an email address or else you will not be able to sign in on the USTVnow Plus addon. Do not sign up for an account via your social media details.

You will need to subscribe to at least the All Channels plan for $19 (GBP $14.84) in order to be able to watch aMC however. You will also be asked to confirm that you are a U.S. citizen during the registration process.

USTV Now claims to be a fully legal service for American citizens living outside of the United States. While using it from inside the US is restricted, some users have noted that USTV Now does not verify the location you enter upon signup and streams can still be accessed from within the United States if you connect to a VPN server outside the country.
