This might sound stupid, but you’d be surprised at the number of people who can’t access new content on their Kodi boxes simply because they have the wrong date and time set. It seems that many cheaper Chinese manufactured Android boxes are improperly configured, and do not automatically set the date and time when connected to the internet like they should. If you’re only seeing movies and TV shows from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, or 1950s – this is likely the problem. If your Kodi thinks it’s living in a pre-internet era, how could it be expected to deliver content that it considers to be from the future?
Depending on what device you’re using, the procedure for setting the date and time might differ. On most Android devices, the date and time can be easily set through the device’s Android Settings menu, not through Kodi itself. It should take less than ten seconds to set the correct date and time on most devices, and some devices might even offer an option to automatically set the date and time. Once you have the correct date and time set on your device, you should once again find the latest movies and television shows in your Kodi addon listings.
Step 1: Navigate to the Android Settings menu.
Step 2: Select the Date & Time tab.
Step 3: Choose between Automatic date & time or manually setting the correct values.
