Kodi stream not working? Yet more popular Kodi addons forced to close in latest crackdown


If your Kodi stream has suddenly stopped working, this is probably the reason why…

An anti piracy campaign launched by some of the world’s largest and most powerful broadcasters has resulted in the sudden closure of several popular Kodi addons.

In what is a huge blow for Kodi users, the operators of the add ons have taken the decision to shut up shop after threats of legal action.

This week The Colossus add on repository which was home to a number of popular add ons including Bennu, Covenant, DeathStreams, Sportie and URL Resolver suddenly went offline.

The operator of URL Resolver said he was stopping “all development” of his Kodi addons and from now on will only focus on “100% legal stuff”.

A lot of Kodi users use Colossus to access streams to Premier League football among other content.

Meanwhile, another popular Kodi add on called The_Alpha, also appears to have closed down after its developer revealed that he had been contacted by the Motion Picture Association (MPA) and the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE), which includes the likes of Sky, Disney, Warner Bros and Netflix among its members.

The letter which was published by TV Addons reads:

“This letter is addressed to you by companies of the six-major United States film studios represented by the Motion Picture Association (MPA), namely Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc., Disney Enterprises, Inc., Paramount Pictures Corporation, Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation, Universal City Studios LLLP and Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc., Netflix, Inc. and Amazon Studios LLC (represented by MPA via the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE)), Sky UK Limited, and The Football Association Premier League Limited.”

“We are writing to you concerning your development, distribution and/or involvement in the operation of certain third party Kodi add-ons under the moniker ‘The Alpha’. The infringing addons provide unlawful access to protected copyright works, including works owned by, or exclusively licensed to, the Content Companies.”
