NASHVILLE, Tenn., December 20, 2017 – In the last 2 months, hundreds of Kodi add-ons and dozens of repositories were deleted from the Kodi community. ReviewsDir expressed the concern over the future of the media streaming service in a news article “Covenant And Many Other Streaming Addons Shut Down Due To Legal Threats” and demonstrated a way out of these threats.
Internet users love new alternatives to make life more entertaining, and Kodi is one of those alternatives. Movies, TV shows, Music, and Games not only excite people but change the way they think or behave. One of the most exciting developments over the last few years that enable internet users to stream online content and manage it all via a single platform that isn’t associated with a traditional cable subscription or satellite provider is Kodi.
Kodi has risen to fame in a very short span of time due to its free open-source nature. It is originally created by Xbox Media Center (XBMC) for home entertainment. Kodi has continued to evolve, spawning a community of its own. Since it was first introduced back in 2003, Kodi has been re-developed and re-shaped numerous times by more than 500 software developers and more than 200 translators. It initially supported 12 languages but by the end of 2014, the number reached to 75 languages.
Kodi is not illegal, but the open-source nature of Kodi is putting it at risk. Too many add-ons and illegal streaming material are shading the true elements of Kodi. Kodi community members and developers should take charge and keep Kodi repositories and add-ons piracy free. Kodi is definitely here to stay!

On Nov. 15, 2017, the most used Kodi Repository “Colossus” was deleted after constant threats were received by Kodi community developers. With Colossus gone, Covenant and many other streaming add-ons hosted there, including Bennu and DeathStreams are also no longer available. This is not the first crackdown on Kodi; a few month earlier, Kodi’s most renowned add-on “Exodus” was shut down due to piracy-related issues.
Kodi is facing the same fate as Peer-to-Peer file sharing technology did. P2P by nature is one of the most advanced technologies to share large files from one network to another. But the wrong use of the technology has made it illegal in many regions of the world.
For movie lovers and sports fans who want to watch their favorite content online without going under the gray area of pirated content, ReviewDir has a solution. ReviewsDir highly recommends using these advanced technologies for better purposes and strongly condemns the illegal use of these technologies. For internet users with good motives at heart, ReviewsDir has a proper online guide on “Why It Is Essential To Use A VPN With Kodi?” It is always advisable to use reliable VPN for Kodi and enjoy non-stop entertainment.
Internet users need to protect themselves by purchasing licensed content and avoiding pirated content online. At the same, it is essential that law enforcement and policymakers take note of this growing threat and prepares to take the necessary action to protect the rights of entertainment of millions of Kodi users.
