KODI has published a statement following a slew of complaints from users of so-called Kodi Boxes that their streaming add-ons and IPTV plugins have stopped working.

Noticed some of the add-ons and plugins installed on your Kodi Box have stopped working? You’re not alone.

In a new blog post, Kodi confirmed that a swathe of third-party add-ons have ceased to work on the platform following a crackdown on online piracy.

Back in May, the Digital Economy Act received royal assent – and increased the maximum jail sentence for copyright infringement in the UK from two to three years.

Separately, the European Court of Justice ruled that streaming copyright-protected material without the right-holders permission was illegal.

Downloading pirated copies of movies, music, and television shows has always constituted copyright infringement.

However, streaming the same content was previously a legal grey area.


This loophole enabled those who sold set-top boxes, like those powered by the Kodi media player, to promote the easy facilitation of piracy via streaming.

The combination of this landmark ruling and the increase in sanctions for those who infringe copyright has led some developers to abandon Kodi.

In early June, Kodi fans saw one of the most popular destinations for third-party add-ons removed from the web.

TVAddons, which hosted a number of add-ons that enabled free streaming of copyright-protected material, was taken offline completely.

Even its Facebook page was unavailable, blog TorrentFreak reported.

Isn't it full of ads, with no debrid support yet and consequently streams can break, and only available on android? Sure Kodi streams can also be hit and miss, but have been 100% reliable ime with realdebrid.

On a separate subject, I must say I am surprised to see how popular putlocker is said to be in this survey: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2017/07/07/rise-illegal-kodi-streaming-threatens-piracy-crackdown-says/ Really?
