am regrettting that I messed with my old reliable FreeTelly 16. After following the recommendation on the TVaddons web page to upgrade to 17 and following the instructions I find that numerous add-ons are having difficulties.

A prime example is USTVNOW. Before my upgrade it was working fine in Free Telly. Immediately after the upgrade in Kodi 17 it displays all the EPG stuff ok but if you select anything in there to watch it appears to go off and try to get it working but in a few moments stops on a blank screen and flips back to the fully functional EPG.

Here is the log from a typical attempt to play it. If someone would benefit from an entire log from boot to play to fail I could create one for anyone that can offer advice.

Krypton has issues with USTV. Go to their site and create a new account. I even heard that you can use the same credentials but you have to create a new one.
