There was one, but I believe it hasn't been kept up.  Broadcasters don't like kodi/plexor any other platform that could consume an API if they ever decided to add one.

Most plugins have to screen scrap, or reverse engineer an mobile app API - but then the video normally has specific DRM keys to access it.  

Best you can do is petition the networks for an API for third party access.

It was abandoned a couple of years ago unfortunately, a few of the TV websites changed the way they were doing things which broke the plugin.
