Those who are hearing about AceStream for the first time, may not have any idea what it stands for. AceStream is a Peer to Peer service which allows users to broadcast Live actions and spread using P2P technology. This is similar to torrent files. The peers watching the live broadcast works as a seed and they distribute files to other peers accessing the same content. So it is possible to broadcast channels in HD quality with minimal effort.
Installing AceStream in Kodi is a cable cutting solution so that, you can forget monthly Cable subscription and enjoy any channel in Full HD quality. Plexus Add-on is available on Kodi and you can stream AceStream links and SopCast links to watch sports channels and any other entertainment channels. All you need to have is data connection with high speed and unlimited data access and fresh Acestream links.
