Full Version: Change Kodi time zone?
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I am in NY. My girlfriend gave me her amazon firestick which she had in Pittsburgh. I added Kodi to it in NY. On the top right corner of Kodi, it says it is 7:15pm when it is 10:15pm here. When I use USTVnow Plus, it shows me live TV at 7:15pm, and not local channels that are playing live now in NY at 10:15pm. Is there a way to change this?
Go to System -> Settings -> Appearance -> International and change the timezone.
I managed to change the time zone on the firestick's settings so now the time is right on the top right corner. However, i see no option to change the time zone under "International" for Kodi's settings. USTVNow Plus is still playing channels that are not local. For example, its playing Fox 43 news, and not our local Fox 5. Anyway to fix that?
1-Try to change setting type from "Standard" to "expert" on the bottom left of the UI once you are on the international settings page

2-stop using add-ons coming from a banned repository (if I do not make mistake, ustv now plus come from tvaddons repository which is banned here)
Sorry, Im new and didnt know about banned repositories. Do you have an alternative suggestion for local channels?
The problem is that USTVNow addon, which is OK and was in the kodi repo doesn't work any more.

It has been forked as USTVNow Plus and added to the tvaddons repo because the new author prefers that community. Which is a shame because it seemingly could be in the kodi repo if the author chose to.

Despite being in tvaddons, I don't regard it as benign.
Android (and FireOS) take the time settings from the OS. Change it in the OS settings and Kodi should reflect that change.

The USTVnow service provides streams that come from Pittsburgh. So no matter what you set the time to the streams are going to be live from Pittsburgh.

Hope that helps make sense of things.
