PAC-12 Kodi addon

If you’re into college football, basketball, soccer, or volleyball, you’re probably already familiar with PAC-12. It used to be pretty easy to stream this channel via Kodi, but now that the PAC-12 Network addon has been taken down, things are a little bit trickier. Don’t worry though, we’ve found a way to watch PAC-12 on Kodi that still works!

Below, we’ll explain how to live stream PAC-12 via Kodi with a fairly simple method. We’ll also walk you through the configuration process and suggest a few other sports addons, just in case you feel like seeing what else is available.

Warning: Kodi should only be used for content to which you have the legal right to access. Neither the Kodi Foundation nor Comparitech advocates the use of Kodi for piracy.

Always use a VPN with Kodi

Every Kodi addon comes with a certain level of risk since a creator could always insert malicious code. However, we can minimize these risks by downloading addons from trusted platforms and using a Virtual Private Network (VPN). As a bonus, VPN encryption helps prevent your service provider from throttling your connection, resulting in higher overall speeds.

Now, every VPN is different, and not all of them are a good choice for streaming. Some might be too slow or lack basic security features. That’s why we recommend NordVPN. This no-logs provider offers some of the fastest speeds around, puts user privacy first, and works with every Kodi addon we’ve tested. It even offers its own apps for Amazon Firestick and Nvidia Shield.

BEST VPN FOR KODI:NordVPN is our #1 choice and its offering up to 60% off at the moment. That’s great, considering it’s fast, reliable, and secure. If you’re still unsure, why not take advantage of NordVPN’s 30-day money-back guarantee to try it risk-free?
