TVAddons Removes Kodi Add-On Tutorial After BT Sport Complaint

This week, Kodi add-on resource TVAddons received a relatively unusual complaint about a page on its site that detailed a BT Sport-related add-on called BT Sport Video. According to a cache copy of the page (Google cache) TVAddons didn’t host the software or even link to it but did detail how to find and install it. – Andy, TorrentFreak » https://ift.tt/2BLZ6Am [photo: TVaddons]

Sony Promotes Kodi Streaming Add-Ons as Ideal for its Android TVs

The vast majority of users of Kodi and/or Sony’s TVs will not know which add-ons they are supposed to use and which ones are legal and which ones are not. That said, it’s almost inevitable that they’ll gravitate towards the ones offering the most exciting content, which means precisely the type of addon being targeted by ACE and by default, Sony Pictures. – Andy, TorrentFreak https://ift.tt/2PhFWuU

FCC Demands Amazon, eBay Crack Down On Kodi-Based Pirate TV Boxes

While the Federal Communications Commission can fine companies for unauthorized use of the FCC logo, they have little real authority over copyright. Meanwhile, stopping vendors from selling such devices won’t really stop the popularity of home-brewed Kodi-based devices overall, given the open source Kodi software itself (and the hardware it runs on) is perfectly legal. – Karl Bode, MOTHERBOARD https://ift.tt/2H7coYK

Google Adds ‘Kodi’ to Autocomplete Piracy Filter

Google has banned the term “Kodi” from the autocomplete feature of its search engine. This means that the popular software and related suggestions won’t appear unless users type out the full term. Google has previously taken similar measures against “pirate” related terms and confirms that Kodi is targeted because it’s “closely associated with copyright infringement.” – Ernesto, TorrentFreak https://ift.tt/2pM26Y6

Kodi Lands on the Xbox One, Making It the Ultimate Set-Top Box

It isn’t just the inclusion of Kodi that makes the Xbox One so versatile, but it’s the final piece of the puzzle. Kodi is a Swiss Army Knife-like media player that actually spun out of an open-source project on the original Xbox way back in 2002. Kodi, which was formerly called XBMC, allows you to access media on remote drives, making it useful for people with a huge library of old ripped DVDs and home movies. (It’s also great for torrenting pirates.) Yet Kodi’s real power is now found in its add-ons and enormous add-on repository. – Alex Cranz, Gizmodo http://gizmo.do/rH6IO9p

Kodi streaming makes you safer online, says TV Addons

“At the end of the day, you’re definitely far safer streaming through Kodi addons as opposed to visiting sketchy online streaming sites in your web browser. Hollywood might be trying to destroy these addons, but as far as user experience goes these Kodi addons may have saved millions of people from being exposed to malware, crypto-jacking, popups and a whole lot of other “hooey.” – TvAddons.co via Chris Smith, Trusted Reviews http://ift.tt/2jYOPbC
