Popular Kodi Add-ons Library TVAddons Vanishes Amid Lawsuit
The war on Kodi-based piracy continues, with one of the biggest libraries for unofficial Kodi add-ons, TVAddons having dropped off of the Internet, with both the website and the library’s official Facebook page having now gone dark.
Last week it was confirmed that third-party Kodi add-on ZemTV and library TVAddons were being sued in a federal court in Texas, and it would appear that the latter is now feeling the effects of that action.
Attempting to access the website now returns either a DNS error or results in a webpage owned by the registrar for the domain being presented instead. TVAddons is, or at least was one of the largest collections of Kodi add-ons, and with so many of them aimed at allowing users to watch pirated content, it was always only a matter of time until something like this happened. The site has continued to grow in popularity, with almost 40 million unique users took advantage of its services in March alone.
With the main website having gone AWOL yesterday and now even the official social media pages for TVAddons having disappeared, things do not look good for the library. While a DNS issue, or an expired domain could potentially take the website offline by accident, that would not have resulted in the social media pages also going offline.
With that in mind, we can only imagine that this is deliberate, and that the legal proceedings are to blame for the situation. Reportedly, support person for the site, who is normally receptive and quick to respond to questions, is now no longer responding to requests for information on the current situation. In fact, emails to the same domain are being bounced, again suggesting even the site’s email has been taken out.
