Bad news for Kodi friends who have been using it add-ons for streaming. The popular Phoenix add-on just stopped working…
It all started last week when American satellite broadcaster Dish Network filed a lawsuit against two of well-known Kodi add-ons: ZemTV and TVAddons.ag.
With the lawsuit, they accuse ZemTV of direct infringement copyright from various TV channels and TVAddons for distributing pirated material through add-ons.
The news has shocked many add-on developers, most of whom are running their software as a hobby without any financial incentive. So a possible treatment that can result in a fine of hundreds of thousands of dollars, does not help to find additional incentives for further development of additives.
This could explain why several add-ons closed the last 48 hours.
So one of the add-ons that TVAddons.ag had available to everyone interested was Phoenix, which gave access σε εκατοντάδες ταινίες και τηλεοπτικές series. Από σήμερα το συγκεκριμένο πρόσθετο μαζί με μερικά άλλα σταμάτησε να λειτουργεί, και ο προγραμματιστής του Cosmix δήλωσε:
"In light of the current events, we have decided to close Phoenix. It was not easy for us. "
Was this the end of Kodi, or is it just a pause on the part of the developers, who so far did not care to hide their traces?
We believe that it is the second, and that very soon we will see new applications that ensure it privacy of those in charge….
Until then, a spectacular turn towards torrent sites is expected…
