USTV VoD: Benefits and Limitations

USTV VoD Kodi Addon

If you’ve downloaded USTV VoD because you’ve heard about how amazing it is, you may be in for a rude awakening. This add-on certainly has a lot to offer, but probably not as much as you were hoping for. USTV VoD pulls its videos directly from the websites of the TV networks it lists. If you know what this means, you’ll understand that this is exactly the source of its limitation. USTV VoD offers you as much as you’ll get from any of these networks’ own websites without an account or login information for those sites.

That means that if that TV network only offers clips on its website of different shows and not full episodes for free, then that’s all you’re going to be getting. SyFy is a good example of this. The website hosts a large number of clips of its various shows online, but most shows you can’t watch full episodes. For that, you’ll need an account with a cable network. You can access some content from them for free, such as season 1 of Expanse. Most shows you’ll just find clips.

Some networks USTV VoD simply can’t scrape from, such as TruTV, which at the time of writing pulls up nothing on USTV VoD. In reality, TruTV does offer a number of full episodes for free on its website and a large number of clips.

All told, you’ll find USTV VoD is a great add-on for learning what shows exist in the libraries of different US Networks quickly and easily. You may even get a chance to check out a few shows through the clips offered by that network. However, you’re likely not going to find too much value in making this your go-to add-on for watching your favorite shows.
