Kodi RETURNS: TVAddons launches new way to download, vows to change streaming ‘forever’
TVADDONS has started to deliver on its ambitious promise to “change how people access streaming media forever”, starting by unveiling a new GitHub Browser it claims makes browsing and downloading third-party add-ons for the Kodi media player easier than ever before.

Kodi add-on repository TVAddOns has vowed to change streaming ‘forever’
TVAddons has unveiled the first part of its ambitious new plans to “change how people access streaming media forever”.

The hugely-popular add-on repository has revealed a new GitHub Browser.

According to TVAddons, this makes it possible for users to install any Kodi add-on directly from the developer's own GitHub repository.

In practice, this will make TVAddons "more resilient and decentralised”.

The add-on repository says its latest innovation brings about a “new age in Kodi addon development”.

Users can download and install add-ons directly from developers via GitHub Browser
Announcing the news, TVAddons wrote, “Behind us are the days where you were restricted to Kodi addons made available through our Fusion Installer or clones.

“Not only does the GitHub Browser give users more choice, it empowers independent developers. Now developers can more easily distribute their addons to the masses.

“Aligning themselves with a particular group or community to facilitate addon distribution will no longer be necessary.”

TVAddons says the latest announcement is just the first phase of a slew of new improvements it has planned for 2018.
“This is just the beginning, there are many big things to come.

"Thank you for being a part of our communithy,” it concludes in its official blog post. (sic)

Earlier this month, the hugely-successful Kodi add-on repository has announced plans to “change the way people access streaming media forever” this year.

Kodi: Ever streamed with Kodi? Here’s what is legal, and what is not
Sun, January 21, 2018
With more than one million so-called Kodi Boxes currently in use in the UK, streaming with illicit set-top boxes is becoming hugely-popular. However, a number of changes in the law could bring harsh punishments to those streaming things they shouldn’t.

Kodi says add-on site ‘brings nothing but misery’

The website sees 19 million monthly active users.

TVAddons was shut down back in June 2017, following the seizure of its domain and social media accounts.

The add-on repository resurfaced later in the year, and quickly regained popularity.

TVAddons recently celebrated its sixth anniversary. It used the opportunity to tease its plans for the future.

In a statement posted on its website, TVAddons said: “We have grand plans moving forward.

“We’re almost ready to introduce a new generation of Kodi addons that will change the way people access streaming media forever!

“Expect the release of these addons in the coming weeks, along with our return to a standard addon submission policy which will once again foster innovation while remaining 100 percent DMCA compliant.”

The announcement follows a tumultuous time for Kodi.

Earlier this year, research from FACT revealed that there are now one million Kodi Boxes in use across the UK.


The FACT research was conducted in association with the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit, Intellectual Property Office, Police Scotland, and anti-piracy outfit Entura International.

It estimated that up to 25 per cent of the online viewing public access content illegally online.

We’re almost ready to introduce a new generation of Kodi addons that will change the way people access streaming media forever!

According to the FACT report, the UK is one of the countries most affected by the increasing demand for Kodi boxes.

Those supplying the Kodi Boxes range from individuals building boxes for a select few friends and family, to sprawling organised crime networks.

There has been a steady stream of reports of individuals who have been arrested for selling these devices, however, FACT claims these are just the "tip of the iceberg".

According to FACT, there are a number of large-scale operations currently in the early stages.

However, the organisation is unable to specify any other details at the moment. The crackdown on so-called Kodi Boxes in the UK is likely to carry severe penalties.

Kodi guide - All the devices you own that can run this streaming app

    KODI GUIDE - which devices are compatible [PH]





Back in April, the EU Court of Justice judgement in the Filmspeler case included confirmation that streaming by end users on illicit set-top boxes, like those powered by Kodi, constitutes an infringement of copyright.

The Digital Economy Act, which came into effect in October 2017, extends criminal penalties for online copyright infringement to match those of physical copyright infringement.

That means the maximum prison sentence that can be awarded in online copyright infringement cases has increased from two years to 10 years.

This change could result in longer custodial sentences for the criminals involved in distributing illicit streaming devices.

The hugely-popular add-on repository has revealed a new GitHub Browser.

According to TVAddons, this makes it possible for users to install any Kodi add-on directly from the developer's own GitHub repository.

It appears, by pushing the posting and hosting of add-ons elsewhere (i.e. addon/forks authors and github respectively), tvaddons are essentially shedding heat and risks off themself. It seems to me it raises the question of the relevance of tvaddons going forward. It is also not immediately obvious how addons are going to be clearly associated with github usernames, since the latter are required for the github browser within tvaddons' Indigo tool ( http://koditips.com/install-kodi-addons-repo-github-browser/ ).

Tvaddons' "success" in legal defence so far has relied on: a) claimants seriously over-egging their pursuit of tvaddons, and b) only 1% of addons tvaddons posted were considered by the claimants to be "offending" addons.

Cheers!
