What is PseudoTV Live?
  • PseudoTV Live (PTVL) acts similar to normal broadcast or cable TV, complete with multiple preset,
    user-defined channels and a EPG. PTVL can directly integrate with various Kodi sources such as Plugins,
    HDHomeRun, Emby, UPNP and PVR backends. The project goal is to create a familiar, easy to use
    "Set Top Box" experience while using all Kodi has to offer.
  • It's channel-surfing for your mediacenter. Never again will you have to pick what you want to watch.
    Use an electronic program guide (EPG) to view what's on or select a show to watch. This script will let you create
    your own rich channel lineups. Add content from Kodi's Library, PVR Backend, Plugins and more...
    Cut the cord with ease, familair controls and functionality of a standard settop box..
