This guide shows you how you can disable certain features on UK ISP Broadband Providers who block Kodi and stop it from working as it should. Includes BT, Sky, EE, TalkTalk, Virgin, PlusNet, Vodafone


The easiest way to fix these problems is to get yourself a VPN so your ISP can't see what you are accessing and won't be able to block anything.
