How to Enjoy Apple Music on Kodi
Kodi is a free, open-source application which is used to manage local collection of movies, TV shows, music, photos, slideshow, podcasts. Although it was created for the Microsoft Xbox and called Xbox Media Center (XBMC), Kodi has continued to evolve, spawning a community of its own.

Unlike other TV streamers such as the new Apple TV, Chromecast 2 and Amazon Fire TV Stick, Kodi isn't held back by licensing or a curated app store, it lets you download a range of community-made apps or add-ons and watch whatever you like.
