Sure

Bear in mind I am a user not an expert

So you have this program called xbmc the acts as a browser for services where you can access all sorts of media.

you can also use it as a platform for viewing all sorts of media

You can get add ons that give you access to further lots of media

Like Viki.com a whole bunch of Asian tv

Then you have this genesis add on that gives you access to literally bucket loads of stuff

Like pretty much all the current movies and tv show all streamed form god knows where and its all free which is pretty sad we really should be paying something to the starving artists and studios. My cheque is in the mail, well it would be if the dog hadn't eaten it

Thanks for the heads up !
I have a M8 box that was not being used, so I thought I would fire it up and install that add on ... I am very impressed with the Genesis add on.

You should try the iStream video add-on from XunityTalk for XBMC, that sorts the returns from searching multiple sites, by video and audio quality, HD at the top. Sometimes it can be difficult to get a good copy, but iStream makes it easy. It does have a few bugs, but mostly works.

Well I have installed KODI and Genesis and it seems to work alarmingly well, though I can't get the media to play via an Android device despite buying the Yatse App. Says Error starting media.

I am fairly sure the sources for said media it's finding would be considered shady at the very least, unsure what the liability for that is.
