You do not own a TV card but want to watch the football games or other programs in XBMC? No problem. With the add-on LiveStreams it is possible to import video streams into XBMC.  

First we need to install the addon LiveStreams, which is not in the official xbmc.org repository. You can find this add-on in SuperRepo for XBMC that is the world's largest collection for XBMC addons.

Here to learn: how to install SuperRepo to get thousands of Add-ons.

In order to use LiveStreams to import different channels, we need to create or download this zip file Attached File  streams.zip   1.44KB   30 downloads (right click -> save target as), unzip this file and you'll get a xml file called streams.xml. This file should not be deleted or moved later, so save it in a place where it does not bother you. If you use a android box, you must save it in your usb-stick and connect the usb-stick to your box.

The LiveStreams add-on is located under the menu videos. To watch the streams you need to "Add Source" in the LiveStreams configure settings.  Choose the path of the xml file you just downloaded and confirm. Now back to the add-on and you can enjoy your ARD or ZDF live programs!
