Happy Friday folks. Hope you are all well. Thanks to really poor internet at my end this week everything tech related had to be put on hold, but alas, i’m back and ready to blog.

So then what has been happening over in the IStream camp this week?

As usual there has been lots of Playlist activity, what with constant updates from Playlist makers, new subscription free Request and VIP sections, and not to mention Coolwave’s fabulous new Channelcut Indexer added to the TV Shows section. There are now a staggering 10 Indexers available in the TV Shows section alone and 8 in the Films section. IStream is fast becoming bigger than ever anticipated, and building a greater Community.

If you’re not familiar with Indexers, what exactly is one? 

All an Indexer is is basically another add on source available directly through IStream. But rather than having to install them from a Zip like many other XBMC sources, you just simply click them to enable them as all the hard work of the initial installation process has been done for you. 

Check out the video above from XBMCConnect to get yourselves familiar with everything Indexer related.

There’s a revolution in XBMC and it’s Istream shaped

Throughout the past 12 months there have been a few prominent rising contenders whose add ons have captivated XBMC users and inturn have appeared to hold the Monopoly and popularity ranking in XBMC. But in the blink of an eye the game has radically changed, and that change comes in the form of istream. Developed by the XunityTalk Team and an array of talented Devs, this constantly evolving Entertainment platform has paved the way for, and encouraged independent playlist makers (some often without any previous level of playlist building experience) to also get involved. It appears that Istream’s possibilities are endless. The add on is FREE, encapsulates just what a community is capable of, and holds no hidden agenda. What’s not to like????


The add on is divided in to easily navigational sections, each offering it’s own level of cutting edge entertainment to blow your mind and it seems it just keeps getting better.

Under the Movies section, there are numerous flawless indexers such as IMDB, Ice Films, Flixanity,, and Movie25.


You have the option to play movies from numerous sources that need to be enable in the settings section, but please be aware that the more sources you enable the longer movies take to load. All sources enable the user to stream Movies in 1080P, 720P and Standard definition dependent on what your hardware allows.

Under the TV Shows section there are slightly more indexers that also pull numerous stable sources to make your viewing experience less frustrating as the sources actually work. The indexers available are IMDB, Ice Films, AnimeUltima, Flixanity,, Project Free Tv, and my favorite TVRage. 


The Live TV and Live Sports options makes the whole Istream experience feel so much more than just TV shows and Movies. Every Dev and playlist maker are readily on hand to contact and are always updating their streams from the best sources available to ensure nothing is down, so in turn the end user has a greater entertainment experience.

What i love about Istream is the fact that it is a Community, a Community to be proud of,and a rapidly growing one at that. And it seems that innovation actually holds no bounds and pulls no punches. Istream is coming for you and it’s taking over, Be part of it!

This weeks’ watched movies via XBMC

I haven’t watched as many movies as i normally do this week as i’ve been taking advantage of the great British weather, but the one that i had really been looking forward to seeing was “A million ways to die in the West”. With Seth Macfarlane at the helm, and the success of both Family Guy and Ted under his belt there was no going wrong, right? WRONG! This movie was short on laughs, an hour longer than it needed to be, and a total let down after following in the cult status of Ted. The Characters lost their way throughout the movie and could have been developed a whole lot further with jokes that were funnier and not so ridiculously slapstick. I didn’t laugh once. The supporting cast actually went against typecast in this movie but for me it just didn’t work.

One of the most cutting edge add ons in Xbmc has got to be Istream which is brought to you by the Xunity Talk crew. It has so many great developer sources and indexers that some people only turn to istream for all their entertainment needs. Watch the video above to familiarize yourself with this great add on and start using it.

It’s confusing

At first XBMC can be quite overwhelming as there is quite alot to get used to but i wholeheartedly recommend installing (via your total installer app) 

Mashup, alluc, Movie25, Yify, istream, go movies, go tv, much movies,
