Are Kodi boxes legal in Australia?

Posted on March 15, 2018 By

The Kodi box has become one of the most popular products in the home entertainment industry in quite some time. From a relatively unknown product a few years ago the market has now been flooded with these boxes in recent times. There are many versions of these boxes and most of them are generic type boxes imported from China whilst some other big brands like Minix have also tried to get on the band wagon and claim they are a premium box supplier. Truth be told all of these boxes are the same on the inside in that they mostly have Amlogic parts and similar hardware.

There has been some controversy about the Kodi box for some time. What many people forget is that these are just essentially an android computer with the Kodi app installed on it. Kodi can be installed on your phone or laptop but does that make them any different? No is the answer. Kodi has many legit uses and it is a great app so it is not good that many ignorant people tarnish its name with these issues.


In many western countries it is not illegal to stream and it is only illegal if you are sharing the content or download it with the intent of illegally sharing it. Also there are many legit add on’s available such as Netflix and Stan which are popular in Australia.

You can also use a proxy server if you are paranoid about using these boxes as this will hide your IP address from anyone who intends to spy on your internet usage. I would recommend using a proxy regardless as it is always nice to have that extra layer of cover. So don’t be afraid to use one of these Kodi boxes as they are a legit product and most people now own one.
