Kodi has apparently had enough of the constant piracy woes attached to its video streaming platform.
The app allows third-party providers to host streams of content – not always legally. Kodi has become the bugbear of broadcasters like Sky and licence holders like the Premier League.
The team behind Kodi itself have no affiliation with streams on its service, but it has made its feelings about the illegal streaming plain in a Twitter spat this week.
Kodi called out one of the biggest so-called ‘addons’ – TVAddons – which hosts movies and TV shows on the platform. The Kodi Twitter account said the addon brings “nothing but misery” to its users.
TVAddons, not to be outdone, responded that Kodi was clearly out of touch with its userbase – many of whom turn to it specifically to get hold of movies or live sports.
