Simple Freeview NZ & AU IPTV Kodi Setup (with full guide & radio)

A New Zealand & Australia combined playlist with full EPG & radio stations!
You can view the included Australia channels HERE & included NZ channels HERE.


From the KODI Main Menu, navigate to Add-ons -> My Addons -> PVR Clients.
Scroll down to PVR IPTV Simple Client and select it.
If you do not have the "PVR Clients" menu or the "PVR IPTV Simple Client" listed:
Navigate to Add-ons -> Add-on Browser -> Install from Repository -> All Repositories -> PVR Clients -> PVR IPTV Simple Client. 

Then click Install. Then continue with the below steps.

Now select "Configure".
Under "General", set the "M3U Playlist URL" to:
Move to "EPG Settings" and set "XMLTV URL" to:
Move to "Channel Logos" and set "Channel Logos from XMLTV" to: Prefer XMLTV
Then select "OK".

Now simply Enable the add-on.
(If the add-on is already enabled, disable it, and then re-enable it)
You should see the channels scanning in and now have a "TV" and "Radio" main menu items.
You can not use full PVR features (recording etc) with this particular PVR back-end.
It's just an easy way to get IPTV streams and guide support into KODI.


To change the order, navigate to Settings -> PVR & Live TV -> General
First disable "Use channel order from backend(s)".
Now select Channel manager.

To move a channel, navigate to it, open the context menu and select move.
Now move the channel to where you would like it.
You can also hide channels you don't use.
Navigate to the channel you don't need, and disable "Active" & "Activate guide".
Once all done, click "OK" to save the changes.
