How to Fix No Stream Available in The Loop Kodi

Sometimes Kodi addons are unable to retrieve working streams for your chosen title from the public internet. When this happens, you’ll get a notice that states “stream not available.” Kodi addon scrapers are developed to search the web and don’t host content of their own like subscription-based streaming sites.

If no streams are available, search for more popular titles that are likely to be available. Real-Debrid links are usually the most reliable and buffer-free when looking for video-on-demand titles.

Make sure your VPN app is on, as recognizing video streams that fall within the public domain is not for the faint of heart. Some links found to be available online by The Loop and other free streaming Kodi add-ons are not properly licensed for distribution.

The Loop Kodi Alternatives

The Loop Sports Kodi addon automatically pulls streams from multiple sources on the internet. There are some other live and replay sports Kodi addons you may want to check out if The Loop is currently down or not finding your desired game.

Some of the content found online by The Loop Kodi addon may be illegal according to the laws in your region. Have your VPN app running while streaming to stay safe and anonymous online.
