TempTV Kodi Addon | Install and Use

TempTV is an all-in-one Kodi addon for streaming Live TV, on-demand movies, TV shows, sports, and documentaries. It is one of the most popular live-streaming addons due to its wide range of channels and entertainment specials. It hosts some of the most popular international channels such as Boomerang, CNN, Discovery, Disney, CNBC, FOX, HBO, Cartoon Network, National Geographic and so much more.

As I write this guide, TempTV addon in 2021 is working fine. This addon is compatible with Kodi 19 Matrix as well as earlier versions.

TempTV is a third-party addon that scrapes streams from other well-known sources. The addon has a handy search feature that allows you to find channels by country and language. Its intuitive interface is easy to navigate even for those who have not used the software before.

The quality of streams isn’t outstanding as most channels are only available in SD (standard definition). 

You may need to install Real Debrid to access premium streaming sources that come in high definition. Real Debrid multi hoster works well with the on-demand section of TempTV addon and gives you plenty of high-quality streaming sources to follow your favorite TV shows and other content. In this TempTV review, we’ll look at the features and benefits of this addon.

Common problems and fixes

As with other addons, TempTV can have some issues that affect the performance and quality of content streams. Here are the 3 most common errors and how to troubleshoot them.

Stream Not Available

This is a common error signifying that a streaming link is dead or broken, or that you may have a poor network connection. In some cases, this error may show if your ISP is blocking access to certain content. Especially if the content is being streamed illegally. Using a VPN, you can access geo-restricted content and bypass any firewalls from your ISP. 

Keep in mind that the “stream not available” error may also occur if the hosting server is overrun by many requests.

You can try to refresh multiple times for the stream to work. Clearing your device cache can also solve this issue.   

TempTV Not Working 2021

TempTV addon 2021 is working just fine. The addon can be downloaded from the TempTV website. You can stream your favorite media content without issues whatsoever. Remember to use a VPN to access blocked content. Also, check for updates on the TempTV GitHub link which hosts the addon’s repo. 

Error check log

As you continue to use the Kodi app all your streaming media will be cached so that it can load faster the next time you want to access it. By caching and storing the back-end data, Kodi makes it easy for you to reload previously watched content and explore pages within the addon.

The media caching will quickly fill up your storage especially if you are using a low storage device like an Amazon Firestick.

The filled-up cache can occasionally cause the “error check log” to appear. To fix this issue, clear up the cache from your device settings and restart the app. 

Also, missing files in your installation repository can trigger this problem. To fix it, use a different repository to reinstall the addon.

Could not connect to URL

This error will appear when you are unable to connect to the URL to install or download the addon. Make sure that you have the correct URL written down and that you are using the right repository to install TempTV addon.

If upon checking the URL the problem still persists, try a different source URL and repeat the installation process. However, this error may still be caused by a server problem. Try again and see if the URL works.

Script Error

Generally, a script error is caused when the Kodi version is not compatible with the addon version. A build-up of the cache may also lead to this error. The script error can be fixed by any of the following three methods.

  • Updating/downgrading Kodi
  • Clearing the cache
  • Updating the addon

Sometimes, a fresh installation of Kodi can help solve the problem.

Is TempTV legal?

TempTV is a third-party addon that is not found in the official Kodi repository. This means that it may host copyrighted content that is illegal to stream. For this reason, you may consider using a VPN to hide your IP address and keep yourself away from ISP tracking.
