Before we Proceed
We highly recommend using a VPN when using Kodi. Kodi users have been known to receive copyright infringement notices for streaming movies, sports, and TV shows through various addons. If you would like to keep your streaming habits private, our recommendation is IPVanish - a complete privacy solution for Kodi users. It's also worth noting that purchasing a 12 month subscription will give you two months free.

Aftershock: Benefits and Limitations
Aftershock version 4.2.4 is an excellent example of what it looks like when an addon developer goes back in and addresses major issues. Updated in October 2016, Aftershock literally went from not working at all to working to an exceptionally high degree. Diving in, you’ll find a nice, unique user interface with quirky icons. Aftershock offers up four main categories: Movies, Live TV, Live (EPG) and TV. We’ll touch on each of these separately.
The movies section for the Aftershock Kodi Addon is nicely organized. It’s broken down based on 9 different Deccan languages. Each language section offers a list of films in that language or dubbed in that language. The real limitation here and perhaps the most disappointing part is that each language section does not have further distinguishing categories, such as by genre or year. That would go a long way to prevent users from having to sift through and guess at the content. Positively, you can search the whole movie section, which is a good thing if you know what you’re looking for.
The Live TV section is much like the Movies section. However, here, you just get a long list of Deccan region television stations. Nothing is broken down by language or category. However, assuming you already know the networks, this is unlikely to be a problem. That said, if you don’t know the networks, you may want to do a bit of research or just do some trial and error.
This section is currently labeled as “Comming Soon” (spelling error and all). We’re assuming that the EPG here stands for “electronic program guide”. This would be a nice addition to the addon. We’ll keep you updated if and when this section is added in.
Your standard TV on demand section, here you will find a mixture of Deccan region AND US TV networks. Maa TV sits right beside MTV. Unfortunately, this section is rather limited and mostly devoid of content. There’s a little over a dozen channels listed here and not a lot of shows. This is perhaps the most limited and weakest part of the addon and one that we’re hoping Aftershock’s developer will grow out more in the future.
