Because there is no way to sideload anything into the unit...It has virtually no place to put apps.
CCast is really just a glorified Chrome Browser when you get right down to it. When you cast something to it, It loads up a webpage (player/receiver app) that has the code to play the content you sent. That is why it requires internet connection to operate because it needs to be able to access those URLs to load it's player apps.
I doubt the CCast even has enough storage space built into it to run Kodi.
It's very different from a FireTV which is basically just an Android stick device with a Amazon branded Launcher.
If you want Kodi you are better off with one of those cheap AMLOGIC 905 Android boxes. You get a remote, can expand the storage capacity with an SD Card, and get a full Android to run any APK you want including Netflix and Hulu. If you shop around you can find them for just a few dollars more than a CCast costs.
PLUS most units are compatible with Win10 Cast To Device feature.
