Upgrade message

This add-on is no longer being developed (by xbmcplus devs., not BlueCop). Both the stable and unstable (BETA) are not available anymore on GitHub. "Free Cable" was renamed to "USTV VoD (Video-on-Demand)".

Please uninstall the mentioned add-ons and install the new USTV VoD Add-On you can find in the xbmcplus repository.

Using a proxy or a vpn you should, I think most of the people working on this are outside of he US, so we have an interest in getting it working this way. I think we few channels work without a proxy or vpn but not many.

Because there's so many different ways of bypassing geolocks some might work with some channels where others won't.

Eye In the Sky has found a few which don't work with a proxy, although this can probably be fixed.

maybe i'm being really dense, but when i install the xbmcplus repository, i can't install the free cable plugin because it is marked as broken.

I am on the latest stable build of xbmc. Is there a requirement for a certain xbmc version?

Thanks!

It's working. Try to uninstall the old one and reinstall from the xbmcplus repository again.

Delete what? I don't have the free cable add on installed. When I try to install it from the xbmcplus repo it says broken, with no option to install.

that is my problem as well. I do not have the plugin installed at all, so there is nothing to delete.

I just tried on a fresh xbmc install with the latest nightly, and I get the same error.
