Inside addon series BOB kodi Addon Great Developers. Here is the first part of my look at the inside of the add-ons. For this blog I’m looking at one of the newest addons on the scene.
There are Seven main developers in the add-on and these can be found on twitter. If you like their work why not follow them and drop them a message of thanks. The playlisters are BlueCostaTAsolutionsTNPBValhalla DaButcher Deezal Tiny Tykes
There is some guys that work tirelessly in the background why not follow them on twitter, the dev that sorts out what the palylisters wants is midraal follow him on twitter here and over on noobs and nerds forum here.
First we need to load on the add-on, you can find the install guide on the following blog click here to go to the guide.
After you have read this blog, come back here to go to the developers sections.
Ta Streams guide
Let’s have a look at what you are greeted with when you open the add-on. As you can see there are plenty of sections for you to dig your teeth in to.
There is something in this addon for everyone, we have live TV, TV shows, reality TV, Music, sports. This is the only addon that I have come across that has a section that changes depending which season it is, and not only do you get this but you also get each devs section individually.
Below this screenshot I’m going to be covering the seven sections and the other sections will be covered in their own blogs as they are too big to be covered on here.
As you can see there is plenty of sections to this add-on. Below I’ll cover each section in turn.
Changing the way the list looks.
But before I go in to each section I need first to cover one thing that I learnt recently, when you pull the panel on the left of the screen. As well as the usual changing the few type, i.e. list big list thumbnail etc. you change the way the list is sorted by. You have the default listing this being the way it was loaded, you can change this to: Name ( this puts it in to an alphabetical list) Year ( this give the date of release ) MPAA rating (this is the motion picture association of Americas rating system of films, the ratings are listed on a screenshot below as well as screenshots of the other listings)
These are applicable to each section in bob, but the mpaa is only applicable to the films available in the addon.
This section will be covered in the bob’s tricks and tips blogs.
In the section of the add-on, the guys have decided to include only the latest 21 films added on to the add-on. There is no general way these are included, they don’t stick a genre type. As you can see from the following screen shot there is plenty of different types of films. From animated movies like stork and Pete’s dragon for the kids, a sports documentary – Usain bolts documentary. A few films for the ladies amongst us – absolutely fabulous and Bridget jones baby. A few horror’s for those that like a fright or two – Ouija: origins of evil and pet.
As you can see there is another section for more releases. If we click on here there is a list of another 112 that again do not stick to a general genre type. There are horror films like the conjuring 2 the boy. Drama films like the creed and me before you. Crime films like the hateful 8. Comedies like dads army and dirty grandpa.
This section has recently been updated to include 4 new lists by DaButcher, Deezel, tiny tike and a list full of sitcom TV shows.
Here’s a more in depth look at each part in this section. Each show has the list of episodes.
Blue has put together a great list of TV shows that cover a wide range that should suit every one, there is some old classics like Blake 7 and red dwarf. Some new shows – Big bang theory.
Blue must like the Marvel and DC shows like arrow, flash and marvel agents of shield with plenty more as well. For the crime show fans amongst us there’s a few ncis thrown in for good measure.
There is far to many to list here but I highly recommend taking some time to look through this section. As there is 231 shows to look through and plenty for everyone no matter what their tastes are.
The latest section that has been added to the list. As the name suggests we find a list of 47 shows that fit in to the sitcom genre, we have some comedies like 2 broke girls, the big bang theory. Some classic shows like according to Jim, friends married with children and frasier. There’s animated shows that we all love – family guy and the simpson’s.
So if you like your sitcom shows then this is the place for you. I’m sure that this section will grow and grow so i’d highly recommend keeping an eye on this section in the future.
I’m sure many of you will have seen Dabutcher’s shows on YouTube. You can find some great videos on bob on his channel. But he decided it was high time that he threw is all in to a list in an addon.
At the time of the original writing of this blog he had 65 shows on the list but at present he has 84 shows and I’m sure that will have grown again soon.
In Dabutcher’s list you will find some great shows from many a different genre scope. We have shows like American pickers, ice road truckers.
Having flicked through the list I have spotted a few of my favourite shows – Storage wars and storage hunters, there is even some shows for the women – the bachelor and the bachelorette.
This is a section I would highly recommend coming back and checking out regularly as DaB is updating this list daily.
Deezels Crime TV
I have to say that this is one of my favourite sections, but that is mainly cause I love my crime programmes. In here you’ll find some great shows like behind bars: rookie year, Gang land, homicide hunter and on the case with Paula Zahn.
At present there is 30 shows in here but I’m sure that deez will add more as time passes by.
Favourite TV shows by Deezel.
There is only 7 shows at present but there’s enough to be going on with. All can be seen above.
Tiny Tykes TV.
Tiny has put together a great list that is just for the kids. Each section contains series from the tv shows, so this should keep your little one happy. We have some old familiar ones like Dora the explorer. Some old classics like fireman Sam, Garfield and funny bones.
When I looked through the list I came across some series that my daughter loved as a kid, the main one being Pokémon. She’s now reliving her childhood working through the series.
If your stuck for some thing for your kid to watch then head straight to this section.
This is a list of film boxsets put together by TNPB, there is plenty of selection available. The list is compiled in a alphabetical way so is easy to navigate.
I could get lost in here, there is 258 boxsets for you to look through and enjoy. With that many to go through I’m sure you’ll find something to watch, there are some comedy gold ones like Austin powers, big mamma’s house and bill and teds excellent adventures.
For the kids there are some great boxsets like 101 Dalmatians, Alvin and the chipmunk’s, babe and Cinderella.
Every single genre is covered in here, we have action drama thrillers horror comedy. The list goes on and on.
I know I have used this section over and over again, especially some of the older boxsets that I couldn’t find else where.
This has five different sections from some of the Playlister’s.
As you can see Blue has split her section in to four different parts. here’s a look at each section.
This is a list of animated kids films. here’s a few screen shots from the section.
For all the family blue has put together a list of great animated films. And from the screen shots above you can see the amount of work blue has put in to the list. There are films in here that I remember watching as a kid.

Kids Live Action.
From time to time we don’t want to watch animated films. But want to watch films with the kids. You’ll see that blue has put together a list containing 389 films. you will see that there is some old films along with the remakes. Such as Annie, Alice in wonderland.
There is plenty of classics available such as E.T and ghostbusters. Even the Goonies is here. There is film series like Spider-Man, batman and all of the harry potter films.
This is another fine example of the work that blue puts in to her lists, I would be surprised if you can’t find a film to watch over the school holidays.
For those of us that like films with a animal in them then look no further then this section.
Blue has searched high and low to keep us happy with this list. She has gathered together both animated and live action films here, there is 48 films that include a few classics like old yellow. It even includes some series like Beethoven and free willy, it even has a favourite of mine stuart little 1 & 2.

Valhalla has put together a great list of films for kids, as you can see the retro toons seen above, originally comes from this section.
There’s a section just for Walt Disney films, that includes the like of beauty and the beast, lady and the tramp, Cinderella and Dumbo.
As well as the Disney section there is one for mixed animated movies like the BFG and finding dory, as well as some of the films from the Disney genre like peter pan and Pinocchio.
All the rest of the films are in a boxset look, in each part is the films from the film series.
