Internet Streaming in WMC

Is there an app to bring back the internet streaming or is that dead?

Curious if there is an app to bring back or to enable internet show streaming. I.E. something you could find if you searched history channels website, fox, discovery? Not talking about hulu

Nope.

You could set something up to launch a web browser and a particular website, but it might be hard to navigate unless you use a mouse and keyboard already. You could also look to see if that network already has a Windows app, and have a shortcut in WMC to launch that.

Otherwise, I used Kodi to achieve something similar -- there are addons for Kodi that allow you to log into and stream from Netflix, ESPN, etc. And you can easily create a shortcut for Kodi in WMC.

And of course the other option is to install ServerWMC and then just use Kodi for everything -- TV, streaming, local files, etc.

Hey, thanks, kodi is just not for me, although that is a really good thought. My problem is I can’t differentiate between legitimate addins that just pull from the website and the stuff I feel like I should be paying for. I never got to use WMC with that feature, they killed it a few months before I started using it
