It supports ARM and Intel processors, Windows, OS X, and several shades of Linux.Part of the beauty of Kodi is that it can run in this hardware while coexisting with the original software.Among its long feature set, Kodi even supports Apple’s Air Play, albeit in a reverse-engineered way that doesn’t work with protected content like Netflix.Microsoft has moved a lot of WMC-like capability into the Xbox platform.The Xbox One will have live TV viewing capability that will support third-party, over-the-air tuners from Hauppauge and presumably others in the future.While very useful parts of it are free, there are paid features that extend the functionality to mobile and other devices.

Among the Plex Pass features ($39.99 annually or $149.99 for life) are cloud syncing, free apps, multiple user account management, Gracenote music metadata, and Vevo music videos.

Similar to Kodi, Media Portal organizes all your music, video, and photo content and can add metadata for commercial content.

It can play DVDs and Blu-rays, and virtually any content format.

There’s even the Linux variant Open Elec, a purpose-built version of Linux for running Kodi that’s light enough to run on a Raspberry Pi.

With all the ports available, Kodi can run on old hardware (with some limitations on performance), like the first generation Apple TV, and newer boxes like Amazon Fire TV and the current Apple TV.

Despite these improvements, the focus in home entertainment shifted to consumer electronics (CE) devices.
