If you’re using Kodi, there’s a good chance you’re looking for two things: On-demand movies and television shows, and live TV. For the former, great addons like Exodus or SALTS will do, but those addons don’t offer live TV. The Made in Canada IPTV Kodi addon, however, is an excellent option for anyone who wants a good variety of live TV options. This guide will help you quickly install the Made In Canada IPTV Kodi addon.
Below, we’ve provided our step-by-step guide, including screenshots, to help you through the process. We’ve also listed out two different methods to do this installation, in case you have need of more than one option. We end this guide by giving a preview of the addon, including where we think it excels and areas where it could use some improvement.
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.

Made in Canada IPTV: Addon Review
Perhaps the most important thing to note about the Made in Canada IPTV Kodi addon is that the name is just slightly misleading. Yes, this addon has “Canada” in the name. No, it’s not only for Canadian content. That said, if you are looking for Canadian content, this addon is going to be a good go-to source for you.
As you can see from the above image, this addon does not have a particularly long menu. In fact, if you compare the Made in Canada IPTV addon with some other live TV Kodi addons, such as cCloud TV or GoodFellas 2.0, you’re actually looking at a much smaller offering, at least from the main page.
Listed on the main page are the following options:
- MiC – Live TV
- MiC – Sports Central
- MiC – ACESTREAM CHANNELS
- MiC – Music – 24Hr Commercial Free Music Channels
- MiC – SPECIAL LINKS AND LIVE EVENTS
The first section, Live TV, is fairly obvious. Here you’ll find Live TV channels from three regions: US, UK, and of course, Canada. As this addon does specialize in Canadian IPTV, there are separate sections for French Canadian content and English content. There’s also a section specifically for CBC News live feeds. The CBC News live feeds cover the major cities across the Canadian provinces, such as Vancouver, Edmonton, Montreal, Ottowa, Toronto, and New Brunswick.
The TV offerings in both the Canadian sections are surprisingly small. There are a handful of Canadian versions of American networks in both, while the French Canadian section is about halfway composed of online radio streams.
The USA TV section has far more channels than either Canadian section, with just under four dozen different US channels. This section includes network stations such as NBC and popular cable channels, including A&E, AMC, Discovery, and HGTV.
The UK TV section has over 60 UK channels, although a good many of them are simple the UK variants of US channels, such as Disney UK and Comedy Central UK. However, there are a good number of BBC and Sky options available under here as well.
If you’re into live sports from the US, UK, and Canada, Made in Canada IPTV is a good option for you. The Live Sports section is fairly well developed with good options. There’s a Live Game Streams section carrying games that are currently playing, as well as a Live Sports section with about two dozen different US, UK, and Canada sports channels, TSN, ESPN, and Sky Sports included.
There’s also a section specifically for CBC Sports, and one for live sports via Acestreams.
The live music streams is a unique offering and not particularly common among Kodi addons. Most music genres you can imagine are available. However, you don’t get to sift through different live music stations here. Each one simply serves up one option and starts playing as soon as you click on the genre. You’ll have to hope that the channel available has the type of music you enjoy from that genre.
Likes and Dislikes
Overall, we believe Made in Canada IPTV is an excellent IPTV Kodi addon. The biggest drawback here is that you’re significantly limited with only US, UK, and Canadian channels. Even among those options, the number of channels is limited, although the major networks do exist, which does make up for the limited number available. You won’t get many local networks, as you might with cCloud TV, so your ability to use Made in Canada IPTV for live local sports is a limited.
However, the channels that are there usually work pretty well, which is one of the reasons why Made in Canada IPTV is one of the best live TV addons you’ll find. Sometimes that consistency with working streams is more important than having more options.
