It depends on how you define “get”.

The short answer is yes followed by ‘not from netflix/amazon/disney/whoever’ (except maybe sometimes but not really) because they use DRM to protect their content. Very effective DRM that doesn’t really do anything… Their loss I guess…

Depends on the service, but the big streaming platforms don’t allow past 1080p (or even 720p in some cases) this way.

You can get an minimal distro which boots straight into Kodi, such as OSMC or LibreELEC, and these distros can run even fine even on a Raspberry Pi. Definitely the better option IMO instead of getting Android TV.

Yes

But you can also use install LIBRELEC, which makes Kodi an operating system and you can install it on a rasberry pi and create your own streaming box.

That’s LIBRELEC being and operating system and KODI still being an application. It’s a application not an OS.
