¿Kodi Addons, The New Pirate Superpower?
In the new episode of the Steal This Show podcast, discussing renegade media and the latest file-sharing and copyright news. In this episode they talk to Eleazar, one of the people behind TVAddons, which is the largest repository of Kodi addons.
With up to 22m users of Kodi Addons, it’s certainly becoming a force in pirated distribution of content – some would say a new superpower. The latest episode of STEAL THIS SHOW brings us an anonymous interview with ‘Eleazar,’ one of the people behind the fantastically popular platform.
After a news roundup (notes on the Trump Election | TED using DMCA to censor critics | KickassTorrents trial) the episode explores how Kodi and Kodi Addons works.
We discuss why the pirate community hates Kodi Addons and their struggle to eliminate commercial piracy on the platform, what the most popular plugins for Kodi are, and why it’s not (at all) like Popcorn Time.
We also hear about how British pirates are selling their satellite and cable TV streams online and the similarities with the Cable Wallahs of India. Eleazar also has some hot tips for the best Kodi hardware out there!
