Live Updates: Noobs and Nerds, SpinzTV, Teverz & Others Receive C&D Letters

Popular Kodi repositories NoobsandNerds, Teverz, SpinzTV and others received cease and desist orders today and have taken down their repos in the latest wave of attacks on Kodi developers. Read the full details below.

Unfortunately, more popular Kodi sources were hit with cease and desist letter today from ACE, a company representing multi-billion dollar communications entities around the world. These letters were identical to what was received by the Colossus, Dandy Media, Mucky Ducky, and other repos back in November.

The cease and desist letter alleges that the defendant receiving the letter is encouraging copyright infringement through the addons. The letter does not appear to be a signed legal document. There is no signature from a lawyer and no law firm is listed on the letter. It simply asks each use to “stop” or be faced with further punishment.

Below is a summary of who we know was contacted and the current response by those people.

 

Looking Glass Repo

Gracie, leader of the Looking Glass Repo, also received a letter from ACE. The Looking Glass Repo has since gone offline. There were multiple developers contributing to Looking Glass and it is unsure if they received anything or will be rebranding into something else in the future.

 

The Pyramid

The creator of The Pyramid Kodi addon has shut everything down after a visit to his home from an ACE representative. His addon and also some Kodi builds tied to his name (Tomb Raider Builds) have been removed from the internet.

 

Teverz Repo

Teverz is a Youtube video maker who has his own wizard for Kodi builds. He is not an addon developer to our knowledge. Teverz received a letter and talked to the person on the phone via the number supplied. So far, Teverz is keeping everything online, calling the letter nothing but a “scare tactic” without any sort of legal weight.

 

Doggmatic

Doggmatic is a Kodi youtuber and build maker. Like Teverz and Blamo, it appears that he is not going anywhere and will not be intimidated by the letter.

 

Noobs and Nerds Repository

One or more members of the Noobs and Nerds repository also received letters today and as of this post, the official NoobsandNerds website leads to a suspended account message. The NaN repo has been pulled offline.

OpenELEQ, one of the developers with Noobs and Nerds, posted the following on Twitter:

You probably all seen it allready: Nan-site is offline as is their twitter. It does not look like it will be comming back either and I have also emptied out my repo’s of all content that could be considered copyright-infringing.

I will be keeping my git-account alive though simply to avoid it being high-jacked, nothing else. Also, if you see claims in the future that I or Nan endorses TVA (similar to what happened to Xunity), do not believe it as that will never ever happen!

 

SpinzTV Repository

SpinzTV, one of the most popular Kodi builds on the internet and his repository also hosted the Cartoon Crazy and Strictly HD addons. As of today, his repo is offline and he has stated that he is finished with Kodi for now.

 

Blamo Repo

Blamo, the developer behind Placenta, Neptune Rising, and Death Streams, did NOT receive a letter from ACE. However, he has pulled his repository location and moved it to a new server. He has stated that he is taking a break from Twitter temporarily because he “has some stuff to take care of and some projects to do”.

Note that the Blamo Repo will have a failed repository update the next time you launch Kodi due to the server change. In order to fix this, manually install the Blamo Repo from his repo source and make sure you are installing v0.0.6 or higher.

 

 

Just a reminder, Kodi addons don’t store any content of their own. They are simply search engines into the public internet.

Original Post:

Warning to all Kodi Users

As you read the updates below to some of your favourite Kodi addons, we want to caution you against installing new and unknown repositories. Some people have setup new repositories to host some of the addons below without any programming knowledge or permission from the original developer. The only person who should advertise a new version of Covenant, for example, should be the existing Covenant developer.

 

Colossus Repo Gone

Around 1pm EST on November 15th, the Colossus Repo went offline, taking with it a ton of Kodi addons and dependencies such as URLResolver, Covenant, Bennu, and more. Accessing the official Colossus Github Page shows no repositories listed. The GitHub page was the only official method for accessing the addons and repository and was constantly being updated before it went down.

Multiple users in the repo were contacted with a cease and desist order from the MPAA, where they called them responsible for promoting piracy via their addons in their repositories. A quick reminder that Kodi addons do not host any content and simply act as search engines to the public internet.

 

Smash Repository

The Smash Repository has gone offline. Smash confirmed that he will be moving away from Kodi addons and focusing on a new venture in the future.

 

Shani_01 / ZemTV Developer

Coincidentally or not, Shani_01, the developer of ZemTV who was named in the Dish Network lawsuit along with TVAddons, also reappeared today on Twitter. Shani pledged that he wanted to fight and clear his name to support all Kodi developers who haven’t done anything wrong and are being targeted by large companies.

Shani also posted a link to a GoFundMe page to raise money for legal fees, which was mistakenly taken down by GoFundMe for violating terms and conditions; they thought Shani was raising money for a criminal court case, which he was not.

As soon as Shani reposts his fundraising campaign, we will pass that information along to everyone.

 

URLResolver

URLResolver is an important Kodi dependency that resolves links from a wide list of file hosting websites. URLResolver was previously hosted and developed through the Colossus GitHub, which no longer exists.

Since this original post, URLResolver has since been hosted on the TVAddons GitHub page. In addition, a spinoff fork called ResolveURL has been released, which includes fixed and updates to resolver file lockers.

 

DandyMedia Repo & Addons

DandyMedia has taken his repository offline, which included popular Kodi addons such as Myriad, 1080p, Openload Movies, and others. A Twitter message from @noobsandnerds said the following:

You may notice that from today our repository looks a little smaller. DandyMedia is taking a little bit of Gardening Leave.

DandyMedia’s Twitter account has also been deactivated as of this time. There is no indication that Dandy received any threatening letters at this time. Just a reminder to NOT uninstall Dandy’s addons if you have them installed.

 

Project D

Project D was a popular playlister in the Bennu Kodi addon. According to Twitter, he has joined the Looking Glass team. As of right now, he does not have an addon in the repo but if and when something if release, we will pass that information on.

 

Caz_Wallace Wizard / Repo

Caz Wallace, a popular Youtube video creator who also had a wizard for installing Kodi builds, announced on Twitter that he received a letter from the MPAA warning him against support for any “grey area” Kodi addons.

He announced on Twitter that we will only host legal addons from now and will not have a wizard any longer.

Pulse Build / Wizard

A few of our followers have contacted us to say that upon launching their Kodi box with the Pulse build installed, a popup has let them know that Pulse is going offline and will no longer be maintenance. There is no word whether the Pulse team also received a formal letter warning them or if they are simply going offline as a precaution.

 

Mucky Duck Repo & Addons

On Twitter, Mucky Duck released the following message:

Mucky Duck will no longer be developing the mdrepo or duckpool repo. Ive shut them down due to unforeseen legal actions that I’m not at liberty to discuss.

So farewell for now but hopefully i can find another project that isn’t in such a legal grey area to continue my learning of the addictive language that is python.

on the plus side im getting married in the new year. thinking maybe a stag do in amsterdam anyone welcome.

Mucky Duck was the dev for some popular Kodi addons such as M4U and DuckPool.

 

 

FAQ: If I have these addons installed, what should I do?

If you already have Covenant, Bennu, or any other addon installed which is no longer alive, LEAVE IT ALONE. There is no risk in keeping the addon installed at this time and they will continue to function. Kodi addons are simply search engines to the public internet and host no content. Without developers, addons degrade over time and you will see less and less links returned by them.

If you uninstall an addon, you will not be able to install it again easily. If you are setting up a new Kodi box, you will not be able to install any repo that is currently down.

  1. IT’s exist an ADDONS can TEST all repository have installed in your KODI setup ?

    All have so many repo installed…. but probably some it’s now offline and possibly some has changed address… how we can TEST if all repo installed in our kodi setup it’s effective works ?

  2. It’s a fake legal document that a disgruntled person in our community that cut and pasted the letter. If the document was not signed or any legal identification then it’s a fake, someone is trying destroy this community. Think of build and wizard makers and/ or developers that are bad for this community and have had fights or hated by many. Just my thoughts.

  3. what ace are doing is not legit on there letter it is not signed.so they are tying to scare all the builders and it seems to be working.

  4. WTF, is really going’s on. Yeah I said it. I agree with the man who said, ” how they gonna fuck with my movie time”, that’s all I watch. They don’t even want you to do that. You want my dreams too? Anything that someone puts out that could benefit a-lot of people, (THEY) want to cut the head off of it because it doesn’t benefit their pockets. And y’all know who I’m talking bout when I say ,”THEY”. I know some of the good repos are gone, but their are still some good ones left. Don’t cry, dry your eye, they can’t cut all the sources, try Andy Emulator-SPMC. Movie Lovers, we got options.

  5. See this is why this whole scene needs to go underground…

    Not less the 6 posts down Alpha asked people to stop putting up clones of the repository and quess what… someone does… talk about selfish and self serving…

    Fork the contents if your going to post it because cloning and posting the contents make it look like that even tho he was given a cease and desist order he’s not complying because a clone still looks like its HIS… Forking the repo and reposting it moves the ownship and resposibility for the repost over to the persons reposting it…

    Why any of the coders even bother by trying to help is beyond me because all most people see is the inconvenience to themselves when things go down and then go running to some site based on making money like this place crying “oh what do i do” without any concern for the people actually providing the programs in the 1st place…

    Kodi has become such a huge source of revenue for dealer and site owners that freeload off it and i truly hope the end consequences force it underground where its out of the reach of all the money grubbers…

  6. When I check a repository url how do i know it’s down it says index of (0) items would that mean its down thanks

  7. please someone tell me what streams i can use for KODI
    or anything else on this zoomtak box that is currently not operating since i have no streams
    Kodi 17.4
    anyhelp would be appreciated

  8. I wish people would give it a rest leave colossus and it’s add-ons alone by keeping them alive you cause us problems..

    As much as tvaddons piss me off at times you must get behind them if you don’t want the Comunity to dissapear or go completely underground.

    As a last statement on colossus let it die please you will do us no good keeping it. Or the original add-ons please fork them not clone them.. yes there is a difference.

    Regards and take care

    The Alpha.
    Retired Dev/hobbiest/playlisters(when bored)

  9. OMG what a shit….

    Colossal1 has delete all GITHUB project……. colossus 1 repo and all other addons it’s dead like xxx-o-dus or similar.

    Also Ares Wizard and Ares Repo it’s offline and it’s DEAD for ever….

    It’s time to DELETE/UNINSTALL this and wait for new developers.

  10. Icanuck, https://imgur.com/a/qpkPI is a snap shot of a IM conversation. What’s that supposed to prove? I’m Chris Blower, author of the beast! I can pretend, like you, to be anyone I want. “I do host my own repo still and it’s private now because I don’t share my work with people like you anymore.” Pro sports works for shit, if you’re real, fix it. http://koditips.com/colossus-repo-gone-urlresolver-offline/
    I’ll pick on mucky ducks. Cut and paste from here: Mucky Duck will no longer be developing the mdrepo or duckpool repo. Ive shut them down due to unforeseen legal actions that I’m not at liberty to discuss. I just pinged the repo, it’s communicating? Huh. Smash Repository
    The Smash Repository has gone offline. Smash confirmed that he will be moving away from Kodi addons and focusing on a new venture in the future. More information from here, Just pinged it, still on line. huh.
    Colossus: Sorry to say but I am stopping all development of the urlresolver, metahandler, and my other addons. I am not responsible for covenant and bennu but colossus has agreed to delete the repo too.
    The community needs to support @tvaddonsco legal battle. “here it is! the REAL reason they want money:
    That’s all I’m going to say abut those lies.
    Huh, my build just updated urlresolver. Pinged the repo, still on line. Here, so everyone can see what’s posted here, at THIS point, look below. Don’t pretend to be better than me or continue lying, I’ve proved the lies. Don’t for a minute think I have no clue what I’m talking about. Mucky ducks, smash, and colossus repos are still on line. They’re reporting back. According to here, they’re not. Word of advise, state why you want to help TV addons, but don’t perpetuate the bullshit and lies. It’s definitely catching back up with you. I don’t write addons, I try to keep the developers safe. If you want me to write, I will and I’ll do far worst than Indigo removing programs from the build and installing them back from TV addons……

    Live Updates: Colossus Repo, Others Offline, Shani Returns

    by Admin | Nov 17, 2017 | Kodi News | 62 comments
    Live Updates: Colossus Repo, Others Offline, Shani Returns
    The Colossus Repo and Ares Wizard appear to have gone offline, taking with them the code for URLResolver, Covenant, Bennu, and hundreds of other Kodi addons and dependencies. Read more details below.

    November 18th: The story below has been updated and we have added a summary to the bottom of the post with a list of all addons and repositories that have gone offline.

    Warning to all Kodi Users

    As you read the updates below to some of your favourite Kodi addons, we want to caution you against installing new and unknown repositories. Some people have setup new repositories to host some of the addons below without any programming knowledge or permission from the original developer. The only person who should advertise a new version of Covenant, for example, should be the existing Covenant developer.

    Do NOT install any new repos from people claiming to have updates to old addons. The Cerebro Repository is one repo that we saw that was setup with new versions of popular Kodi addons that had nothing new added to them.

    Colossus Repo Gone

    Around 1pm EST on November 15th, the Colossus Repo went offline, taking with it a ton of Kodi addons and dependencies such as URLResolver, Covenant, Bennu, and more. Accessing the official Colossus Github Page shows no repositories listed. The GitHub page was the only official method for accessing the addons and repository and was constantly being updated before it went down.

    On Twitter, jsergio123, one of the main developers for URLResolver, had the following to say:

    Sorry to say but I am stopping all development of the urlresolver, metahandler, and my other addons. I am not responsible for covenant and bennu but colossus has agreed to delete the repo too.

    The community needs to support @tvaddonsco legal battle. That’s all I’m going to say.

    Multiple reports indicate that jsergio was contacted with a cease and desist order from the MPAA, where they called them responsible for promoting piracy via their addons in their repositories. A quick reminder that Kodi addons do not host any content and simply act as search engines to the public internet.

    @TheAlphaP Twitter Account

    A cryptic Twitter message by @TheAlphaP this afternoon ended up being a sign that Alpha was also in some trouble.

    https://twitter.com/TheAlphaP/status/930911943887482880

    A few hours later, a letter that was supposedly sent to Alpha was posted online. In it, a collection of companies from Disney, Netflix, Sky, Warner Bros, and others calling themselves the “MPA” (Motion Picture Association) warn Alpha against doing any more Kodi development and accuse him a copyright infringement amongst a few other things.

    The letter can be read in full below. TheAlphaP’s Twitter account is still active.

    @EchoCoder’s Twitter Account

    EchoCoder was a developer in the Colossus Repository, working on a number of addons like Bennu and his Echo __ (Streams, Sports, Movies, etc) brand of Kodi addons. As of right now, EchoCoders Twitter account has disappeared and does not exist.

    A few reports surfaced that Echo was also hit with a cease and desist order for his role in the Colossus Repo, but there is no confirmed truth to that story.

    @Ares_Wizard’s Twitter Account

    The Twitter account for Ares_Wizard also no longer exists and there is no official word on its status.

    UPDATE: As of November 17th, the URLs to the Ares Wizard pages online here and here have been taken offline.

    Smash Repository

    The Smash Repository has gone offline. Smash confirmed that he will be moving away from Kodi addons and focusing on a new venture in the future.

    Shani_01 / ZemTV Developer

    Coincidentally or not, Shani_01, the developer of ZemTV who was named in the Dish Network lawsuit along with TVAddons creator Adam Lackman, also reappeared today on Twitter. Shani pledged that he wanted to fight and clear his name to support all Kodi developers who haven’t done anything wrong and are being targeted by large companies.

    Shani also posted a link to a GoFundMe page to raise money for legal fees, which was mistakenly taken down by GoFundMe for violating terms and conditions; they thought Shani was raising money for a criminal court case, which he was not.

    As soon as Shani reposts his fundraising campaign, we will pass that information along to everyone.

    URLResolver

    URLResolver is an important Kodi dependency that resolves links from a wide list of file hosting websites. URLResolver was previously hosted and developed through the Colossus GitHub, which no longer exists.

    The TVAddons GitHub page is currently online and hosting a copy of URLResolver for reference, but without developers to update the individual resolvers, they will degrade over time and you will see less links in addons that use it (Covenant, Bennu, etc).

    DandyMedia Repo & Addons

    DandyMedia has taken his repository offline, which included popular Kodi addons such as Myriad, 1080p, Openload Movies, and others. A Twitter message from @noobsandnerds said the following:

    You may notice that from today our repository looks a little smaller. DandyMedia is taking a little bit of Gardening Leave. #DontPanic

    DandyMedia’s Twitter account has also been deactivated as of this time. There is no indication that Dandy received any threatening letters at this time. Just a reminder to NOT uninstall Dandy’s addons if you have them installed.

    Mr. Blamo / Death Streams

    Mr. Blamo, the developer of the Death Streams Kodi addon (which used to be in Colossus) is the first to pop up in another repository. Death Streams can be found inside of the Looking Glass Repository, the formal name for Gracie242’s team.

    Project D

    Project D was a popular playlister in the Bennu Kodi addon. According to Twitter, he has joined the Looking Glass team. As of right now, he does not have an addon in the repo but if and when something if release, we will pass that information on.

    Caz_Wallace Wizard / Repo

    Caz Wallace, a popular Youtube video creator who also had a wizard for installing Kodi builds, announced on Twitter that he received a letter from the MPAA warning him against support for any “grey area” Kodi addons.

    He announced on Twitter that we will only host legal addons from now and will not have a wizard any longer.
    Pulse Build / Wizard

    A few of our followers have contacted us to say that upon launching their Kodi box with the Pulse build installed, a popup has let them know that Pulse is going offline and will no longer be maintenance. There is no word whether the Pulse team also received a formal letter warning them or if they are simply going offline as a precaution.

    Mucky Duck Repo & Addons

    On Twitter, Mucky Duck released the following message:

    Mucky Duck will no longer be developing the mdrepo or duckpool repo. Ive shut them down due to unforeseen legal actions that I’m not at liberty to discuss.

    So farewell for now but hopefully i can find another project that isn’t in such a legal grey area to continue my learning of the addictive language that is python.

    on the plus side im getting married in the new year. thinking maybe a stag do in amsterdam anyone welcome.

    Mucky Duck was the dev for some popular Kodi addons such as M4U and DuckPool.

    Noobs and Nerds

    Noobs and Nerds, home to such addons as Bob Unleashed and Elysium, announced that they will no longer be active on public Twitter and will only be taking help, support, and updates on their forums. All addons are moving forward with development.

    Vortex

    Rockcrusher announced on Twitter that the “Special Events” section in Vortex is being taking down for the time being. This removes the legal “grey” area from Vortex and the rest of the addon can continue to be enjoyed

    FAQ: If I have these addons installed, what should I do?

    If you already have Covenant, Bennu, or any other addon installed which is no longer alive, LEAVE IT ALONE. There is no risk in keeping the addon installed at this time and they will continue to function. Kodi addons are simply search engines to the public internet and host no content.

  11. Wow, this thread is sure entertaining, why so much anger? I appreciate all the developers and if somebody could point me in the right direction I would love to learn how to create my own addon’s without having to steal somebodies else work.

    Ever since Covenant come out with that extra library my system (raspberry 3 with OSMC) has been running like shit, So against the advice here at Kodi tips… I uninstalled Covenant
    but things are not better almost all of my addons just hang when opening a link to a movie. Url-resolver?

    This makes my drug induced paranoid mind wonder about conspiracies..has the film and entertainment industry put paid moles in the developer community to get malicious code
    distributed from repositories? I mean this half in jest, but you never know.

  12. @Colossus Reborn

    Thanks for the Covenant etc forks. Have done the same. As per this thread, looks like only way to go is develop/maintain one’s own Repo’s 🙁

  13. @Wrath you still have no idea what you are talking about. You talk as if you are a developer… Were you ever on the tvaddons team? Have you even ever developed anything? You need to support tvaddons not bash them and if you were a developer you would understand why!

    You assume this isn’t the real iCanuck but it is… https://imgur.com/a/qpkPI
    I do host my own repo still and it’s private now because I don’t share my work with people like you anymore. You bring nothing but negativity to the scene with all your lies, slander and complete lack of experience in what you are talking about…

  14. Its about time all the freeloaders had to learn to do all their own work… copying a bunch of repos is is one thing but just who is going to maintain and update them? Way to many have come to use KODI as a method of creating money for themselves and now everyone except the self sufficient ones are going to pay the price as this will get worse every time some coder tries to put his stuff in the public…

    I agree with Wrath in what he says about TVADDONS as way to many people seem to just take it for granted that they were everyones savior without understanding ANY of whats gone on behind the scene when in reality all they have ever done is attract the attention of the providers and the rest of the bullshit organizations that want to put a end to streaming… they created a system of thousands and thousands dumbed down users dependant on a small group of developers which as everyone can see is rather easy to bring down simply by attacking the home sites and sending a few threatening letters to a handful of coders… its like a house of cards that was easy to knock down…

    The future is in more coders who maintain their own stuff and do it privately out of the way of places like TVADDON’s or SuperRepo and others being able to cash in on it and wreck it once again… private forums and a lot less “out in your face” advertising needs to become the way…

    And for all the morons that think this is not about money for people, grow the fuck up as like it or not money makes the world go around and if it wasnt for all these plugins allowing dealers to promote the sales of their boxes none of this would be going on… Its like the drug dealer standing on the street corner compared to the corporate guy hiding in the shadows… who do you think is going to the get caught 1st…

    Theres already a few private forums and i am sure there will be more as its going to be the only smart way for coders to get appreciation for their talents while protecting themselves…

    Its going to be the Url Resolver people miss the most but hey maybes its time for that to be rethought somewhat anyways…

  15. Theta, you’re another uneducated idiot. I don’t write addons. I try and protect the REAL developers. Anyone can comment, understand the point and not some asshole coming behind and stealing someone elses name.

  16. iCanuck, who’s the idiot? You, if this IS you, the former developer, or someone stealing his name, who I though was intelligent, pull your dick out of your mouth and addons ass. Where the fuck did I say the developers were getting the money? I didn’t. The developers get fucked when someone else takes their programs and puts them in their repos and abuses them and profits from them. “Developers hear me and hear me loud and clear, stay the fuck away from tvaddons and get your shit back into your own repos.” What, are you fucking blind too? When I come here and read, I also copy what was originally written. What happened to the blurb about url resolver saying they were pulling their shit unless people start stepping up and help pay tvaddons legal fees? Funny they remove shit from here all the time when called out on it. So if you were the real iCanuck who had his OWN repo, I highly doubt the real ” iCanuck” would have posted what you posted. So yah, go fuck yourself. I’m here to educate. So anyone listening to this fuck tard, the real Icanuck, being one of the credited developer of great addons like Pro Sports, understanding what tvaddons is ultimately about, would have NEVER posted this. How am I doing so far?

  17. It’s time we all step up and do our part to make sure that bullies aren’t able to put an end to our community! They can go after one person, but the code is open source and lives forever.

    We need to all setup GitHub accounts, and make mirror copies of repos so that the MPA/MPAA/ACE will stop bullying Kodi devs!

    Download the files from any of the repositories below, then put them up on your own! Fork the repositories too, the more the better!

    If we all do this, there will be no stopping Kodi addons! Code is legal, code is free speech, code is open source and here for us!

    SPREAD THE WORD – IF WE ALL DO THIS, NO ONE CAN STOP US

  18. Kodi working well no working 100% u need 2 know your kodi and i got 1st gen firestick witch is shit what u all say got firestick

  19. I stopped using Kodi months ago. It doesn’t work for shit and it’s not worth the hassle. Even when it did work it sucked. Plenty of reliable sites to download stuff from, anyway.

  20. @Anthony good point and for the end user there is minimal risk compared to being a developer releasing “grey area” addons publically. Your point about iptv subscriptions is a bit naive though…There is a war going on right now and nothing is safe from corporate greed.

    What I think everyone is oblivious to is how the 3rd party addon scene has been slowly going underground over the past couple years. The greedier media corporations get the more they threaten ppl who aren’t actually breaking laws but instead ppl they know they can tie up in expensive court cases. In turn this scares the rest of the developers in quitting or going “underground”, what this means is usually development never stops… it just stops being released to the general public who in my opinion, since kodi has blown up, is mostly made up of ungrateful trolls who have nothing but negative things to say about all the hard work developers and webpage designers put in to help the community and say fuck the man / establishment. Exodus/Covenant’s code and Urlresolver will always live on! Just maybe not in the general public 😉

  21. I will continue to watch IPTV and install 3rd party addons. I could care less about fines and the authority. I would never stop what I’m doing for anyone. They would have to break down my door. Fuck the fbi, cia, local cops, fuck them all, My name is Anthony Louis, come get me you fucking losers

  22. Are you SHITTING me? What da f*&%? I cannot believe this is happening. I had it, live streaming channels. I just need the add-ons to give it a clean re-install. UNBELIEVABLE

  23. I feel sorry for all of those people that brought those over priced firesticks on Ebay, thinking they could drop cable & see everything for free. Now it’s back to cable, hope you paid that final bill, otherwise going to be a pricey return.

  24. @ Wrath: I would love to download your awesome addons,
    and use them instead of all those exodus/covenant shyt

    Where can i find them?

  25. The whole idea of cord cutting is to not pay for,what used to be free. When cable first came out it’s main brag was that it was commercial free. That was worth paying for. Now they get paid a ton of money for,running commercials and over charge their users on top of it. Go,after the cable companies for,price gouging

  26. Wrath, you are a baffling idiot. You have no idea what you are talking about… Go climb back under the bridge you climbed out from and quit posting mindless bullshit. Educate yourself about what you post about b4 you post lies and slander. The only money ever these developers have ever received are either from ad revenue to fund their web hosting or donations which are voluntary. Once again go climb back under the bridge you came from!

  27. But wait, it gets better. What the fuck do you mean their offline? I just pinged them. All the ones you said are down, aren’t. So now you’re trying to scare people into paying you money? You really have no shame. What happened to the writer of url resolver saying unless you support tvaddons legal fees, he’s done? You don’t think people don’t fucking read what you write? Crawl the fuck back under the rock you came out from and die.

  28. You haven’t figured it out yet have you. Colossus, smash and all the other repos that “came to the rescue” are now going “help tvaddons legal fees or else I’m pulling all the programs.” I said from day one this is all bullshit. This whole thing has be orchestrated by tvaddons to make money. Developers hear me and hear me loud and clear, stay the fuck away from tvaddons and get your shit back into your own repos. This all started because you came complacent to let these thieving assholes host your program links. Want proof? Why are notifications disabled on your build, but tvaddons notifications still pop up? Peace won’t return until tvaddons is gone. Lying thieving assholes.

  29. so much BS going on here like half these people do not know the diffrence between 3ed party addons and kodi like kodi is not a problem and works a1 apk’s kodi addons they all get from the same hosting sites get a grip people

  30. The CEO mentality is killing the working world for average workers. Pricing are rising because large Corporations can charge what they want and the sheeple will pay. Your ticket price for theatres, your grocery money, most of your non-Local money is going to greedy CEOs’ shareholders and tax dodges. The greed is rampant and when you buy something you might as well put your money in the filthy rich’s pockets and skip all the middle-men. Your cable money was going to the greedy , not the needy.

  32. Cable companies backed customers into a corner over pricing because they had a monopoly. The same customers are still using cable but fewer channels as opposed to none at all. The Kodi style, in my observation, is being used mostly as a movies-tv series box and music player. And a news flash to the theatres, the people that watch online movies will never buy a new age outrageously priced movie ticket ; so you haven’t lost customers. And online movies have been watched on phones, tablets, laptops, and many more devices that stream for decades. The cable companies are like the amateur mechanics that turn the bolt too many times until they snap it off. Lower your greedy prices to a reasonable amount and you WILL win back customers.

  33. It’s all lies MPA is just lawyers trying to make an easy buck until I see the producers the directors filmmakers on a sease and desist it is all fraud besides Lapd are investigating all these Hollywood bigwigs you watch the news they should be more worried about that than anything else…

  34. This is devastating news… Smug bastards at the MPA. Let’s just hope they’ll be back in some form. Reminds me of when all the top torrent guys were shut down 🙁

  35. I know a lot of people say, you can still watch add ons if you already have them installed. Well there is still nothing to seen Bennu~ page is completely gone… And on Movies 123 all you get is error code, when you try to watch something.

  36. lol at all the noobs who cant install addons without a wizard, im glad your kodi is dying. a$$hats like you are killing kodi. if you arent smart enough to do it yourself then you shouldnt be able to do it. people should stop making wizards and builds readily available to these stream noobs. im not even going to tell you how to make sure your stuff works regardless of what these addon developers do. hint resolver only matter for free links….

  37. Well that explains why Bennu was just a blank page today, will check to see if the others work. Can you imagine all the people who just brought Kodi from Ebay users, who had all of this installed & they plugged it up & get nothing….

  38. Not advocating for stealing/pirating, but why do these repos use GitHub – an easy target for DMCA takedowns etc? Why not host the repos somewhere out of the legal grip of the global media companies and not have to worry about these takedowns?

  39. and don’t forget the apps you can use outside of kodi like mobdro wss sports tv 2.0 uktvnow showtime terrarium. mix it up a bit and you won’t be disappointed.

  40. I never use builds anymore. when I had the pulse build installed there were over a hundred addons of which I used around ten! so now I have ftmc and a dozen or so addons. if one goes pop, find another.

  41. Kodi hasnt been all that great for a long time. Terrarium tv is the best free stream out there right now…it all works..easy to manoeuvre and anything you want to watch…just search it..there it is.

  42. lol at some of these replies.SPEND TIME SOME OF YOU AND READ WHAT IS POSTED.
    Also psend some time sussing out how addons and repos work and add and remove your own .

    FAQ: If I have these addons installed, what should I do?

    If you already have Covenant, Bennu, or any other addon installed which is no longer alive, LEAVE IT ALONE. There is no risk in keeping the addon installed at this time and they will continue to function. Kodi addons are simply search engines to the public internet and host no content. Without developers, addons degrade over time and you will see less and less links returned by them.

    If you uninstall an addon, you will not be able to install it again easily. If you are setting up a new Kodi box, you will not be able to install any repo that is currently down.

  43. Shouldn’t have been an issue. Need to treat your resolvers and hosts like corporate treats their profits, hold overseas where the laws don’t touch. Keep up with the financial leaders and freedom ye shall have.

  44. I would like to know what other Wizards there are out there. I just rebooted my machine and once I was logged into pulse I got a message from Ares saying that due to unforeseen circumstances pulse CCM will no longer be updated. Need to prepare for the inevitable.

  45. So is there another highly recommended build that we can start looking at? I have a lot of people who are going to be pretty pissed

  46. I love that idea Anonymous lets all support the streaming I hate cable companies always loosing channels then wanting us to fork more monies out. I loved it when TV was free certain news channels charge to view them its always about monies in this planet well hope we all can continue to view and not all things are even worth watching just to stream is a task. We all should be paid to put up with all this frustration when it comes to over paying and being over charged to watch a little tv or shows.

  47. Sure would be nice to hear from Ares. Nothing has being said yet. It’s definitely legit though because both their Facebook is down as well as Twitter. Also can’t get a connection on the Ares wizard. Something tells me that they aren’t going to be gone for long. I think they would have said some sort of farewell.

  48. Anyone know where or how we can still install covenant add on? Is there any source? Thanks for any information.

  49. sooo… I’m the dummy who was clearing cache on fire tv today and accidentally clicked uninstall instead, been trying all day to get ares back and every time it says could not connect to the repository… I could cry right now

  50. Re: Paying the developers
    So what’s the point in pirating shit then? It will never be enough. You want me to pay them $5 a month now, in a year that’s not enough. Then it will be $10, $20 etc. Might as well just pay for cable. I know the price is no where near the same, but no one is going to do this. Everyone will assume everyone else is paying and no one will pay. Then we have the issue of shit like this happening. If I pay my cable bill I at least have someone to hold accountable when shit stops working. But here? Repos and add-ons die all the time. People get caught doing illegal shit, just deal with it. Don’t act like these developers are doing this out of the goodness of their hearts.

  51. What a fucking loser. How dare this fucking moron fuck my “Movie Watching” situation up. Eyy…I watch tv illegally, so I’m cool with that!😁

  52. In my opinion think the cord cutting community needs to financially support these developer. We have supported all the cable companies over the years. I don’t think it would take much maybe a few dollars a month times the thousands of people trying to get out from under the cable companies.

  53. “Side note: If you have these addons installed, they will still work. Do not uninstall. As of right now, there will be no updates until/if the repo returns.”
